Mets Morning Information for June 29, 2021

Meet the Mets

The Mets played a standalone game in DC and were beaten 8-4 by the Washington Nationals. Things got off to a miserable start when Jerad Eickhoff turned the home runs over to Kyle Schwarber and Trea Turner to direct the game. Schwarber hit another later in the contest, and Gerardo Parra added a solo shot as Washington built a five-run lead. The Mets scratched a run in run seven and used Pete Alonso and Billy McKinney to move within a run for the eighth straight thing, but a three-run homer from Ryan Zimmerman in the lower half of that frame shattered everyone dreams of a comeback.
