Happy Recap - The Mets Beat the Cleveland Guardians 10-9 on a Walk off Hit by Francisco Lindor in the 10th Inning


Our 20-game Sunday plan includes last night's game against the Cleveland Guardians.  The game started out on a low now for the Mets as starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco returned from the IL but allowed five runs in his five innings as the Mets trailed 5-0.  The Mets got two runs in the fifth and one in the sixth inning.  To make it close at 5-3.  However, the Guardians scored twice in the top of the seventh to increase their lead to four runs.  In the bottom of the seventh, Pete Alonso hit a grand slam (see below) to tie the game at 7-7.

The game went into extra innings when Gabriel Arias hit a two-run home to put the Guardians ahead 9-7.  It looked bleak, but the Mets rallied in the bottom of the 10th to win the game topped off by Lindor's game-winning hit.

The Mets have now won three games in a row evening their record at 23-23,  Hopefully, they will go on a winning streak and be in contention for the National League East title.
