Last night, the Mets defeated the Rangers by a score of 5-4. The offense got off to a hot start as they would get two solo home runs from Michael Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes in the first inning. Travis d’Arnaud would add to the total in the second with a two-run homer of his own to extend the lead to 4-0. Asdrubal Cabrera would also drive in a run later in the game with a double.
On the pitching side, Chris Flexen started for the Mets and gave them a solid performance for his first MLB win. He pitched 5.2 innings and allowed three runs while striking out four batters. Erik Goeddel and Jerry Blevins would help get the ball to the AJ Ramos in the ninth who allowed a solo-home run, but still secured his first save as a Met.
