Pete and Re-Pete power the Mets to victory over the Marlins

On paper Pete Alonso had a tough day at the plate stranding runners left and right but he did just enough to power the Mets to a 5-3 victory over the Marlins. Alonso opened the scoring in the second with a home run and then put the Mets ahead in the eighth with his second blast of the day. Brandon Nimmo’s RBI double in the ninth gave the Mets an insurance run for Edwin Díaz who did not need it in slamming the door closed.

The fourth inning was another crucial inning for the Metsies when their fundies were out in full force on both sides of the ball.
