My Father's Day Present Mets 11 Padres 6

The Mets are surging as they won their 5th in a row, 9th out of their last 11, and 11 out of 15.  There is a very long time to go in the season, but the Mets are only 1 1/2 games out of the last wild card spot.  Francisco Lindor led off the game with a home run while Pete Alonso had five RBIs.  I just hate reading stories that the Mets will trade him before the deadline at the end of July.  J. D. Martinez was 2 for 3 with a pair of walks to continue his hot streak.

There was a scare in the eighth inning as the bullpen faltered allowing the Padres to score 4 times to make the score 7-6. The offense answered back in the bottom half as Alonso capped a four-run frame with a two-run single.

The Mets now travel to Texas to play the Rangers and Chicago to play the Cubs.  They will return to Citi Field on June 25 to play the Yankees.
