Jeff McNeil left the game with stomach issues and the rest of us got them once the relievers came into the game, as the Blue Jays took the rubber game of the series with a 7-3 win. After an off day on Monday, the Mets will resume action in a major league city, as they take on the Phillies in Philadelphia.
David Peterson took the loss but was much better than his last time out. He gave up a two-run homer for the only runs he allowed in five innings. The Blue Jays did most of their damage in the sixth inning, when they opened the inning with four consecutive walks and ended up scoring five runs in the frame.
The Mets banged out 12 hits, including eight off starter Hyun-Jin Ryu but they were only able to cash one run against the Toronto ace. Four different hitters tallied two hits apiece for the Mets, including the team’s 3-4-5 hitters. Ordinarily that would result in more runs but the sequencing just wasn’t good today.
Erasmo Ramirez threw two shutout innings and lowered his ERA to 0.90 in 10 innings pitched.
