Mets 9 Indians 2

It is unusual when we go to a night game during the week, but we had rainchecks from the game on Mother's Day.  We usually sit in the Promenade behind home plate, but when we exchanged our tickets we were given seats in the Coca-Cola corner in right field.  At the end of the third inning, we observed there were plenty of seats in our usual section, so we moved over.

This was an interleague game with Mickey Callaway facing his former team.  The Met hitting came alive with two-run homers by J.D. Davis and Michael Conforto. Steven Matz pitched a credible game for 6 1/3 and the bullpen for once was perfect.  This game marked the return of Ruben Tejada to Citi Field for the first time since his collision with Chase Utley in the 2015 NLDS,  He received polite applause when he was introduced as a late-inning defensive replacement.  He has no hits in 9 at-bats since his recall, so it is likely he will return to the minor league when Jeff McNeil comes off the injury list.
