Mets 11 Cubs 2 in Their First Victory Since the Trading Deadline

This Monday night game was part of our 20-ticket package for this season.  The Mets lost three in Kansas City and three in Baltimore right after the controversial moves at the trading deadline.  The highlight of the game was two home runs by Pete Alonso and good pitching by Kodai Senga to give the Mets a 7-2 lead at the end of six innings.  At about 9 PM it started to rain, and the tarp was put on the field.  We decided to leave since we anticipated a long rain delay.

The game resumed after 11 PM.  Danny Mendick hit a three-run homer to cap an 11-2 victory for the Mets.  I guess a few diehards stayed until the end.  Can the Mets with a depleted roster play competitive baseball until the end of the season?
