The Mets lost two more players — second baseman Jeff McNeil and center fielder Albert Almora Jr. — in the span of five innings in their 3-2, come-from-behind victory over the Orioles. McNeil pulled up lame while trying to stretch a single into a double in the third inning. Almora had to leave after running at full speed into the fence in right-center field during the eighth and staying down for several minutes.
Let us take a long look at what we will lose when the National League adopts a universal designated hitter, probably next year.
Mazeika became the first player since at least 1920 with multiple game-ending RBIs in his first four career games, delivering his second walkoff fielder’s choice grounder in five days to help the banged-up New York Mets rally past the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 on Tuesday night for their sixth straight win. The 27-year-old third-string catcher still doesn’t have a big league hit, but he’s had plenty to celebrate.
