I've seen some comments that today is the real start of the season of the Mets: their first game against the Nationals.
I don't agree, but it makes for better press.
It's a good pitching match-up: Scherzer vs. Syndergaard. It's Daniel Murphy's return to Citi Field.
A lead-off home run from Granderson and a Conforto homer provided the Mets offense. Jeurys Familia saved it in the ninth: 13 of 13 saves.
With a 2-0 win, the Mets snapped a four game losing streak and pulled within a half game of the Nats.
Let's Go Mets!
