Mets Defeat Guardians 2-1 on Sunday Night


My 20-game plan called for games on Friday 5/19 and Sunday 5/21 scheduled as a night game.  The pitching matchup was between two former Cy Young winners, Justin Verlander, and Shane Bieber. Jose Ramirez hit a home run in the first inning to give the Guardians the early which stood until the sixth inning when Francisco Lindor homered against his former team.  Jeff McNeil hit a tie-breaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to put the Mets ahead.  Verlander pitched eight innings, the longest for any Met starter this season.  Brooks Raley came in for the ninth inning to get the save.  The Mets have now won five games in a row.  Can they go on a winning streak and get into contention for the NL East championship?
