Seat on the Korner: Ryan McMahon

We select the star of the game and virtually invite him to a Seat on the Korner, just as Ralph Kiner used to do for his studio postgame show on WOR-channel 9 broadcasts in the early decades of the Mets.

Ryan McMahon lit up Mets pitching Sunday afternoon, recording 3 hits and 5 RBIs, including one that left the park. McMahon has now homered in all three games vs New York and has increased his HR total by almost 50% in a span of three days.

Need to Know

  • Tylor Megill struggled in his 11th start of the season as he allowed 10 hits and 4 earned runs over 4 short innings.

  • Francisco Alvarez unloaded on yet another 3-run homer, his 2nd in as many days.

  • Francisco Lindor homered as well, his 2nd of the series.

  • Tommy Pham had a great day at the dish, reaching base 4 times and plating 4 runners in the process.

  • The Mets will look to end this short 2-game losing skid in their first matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Turning Point

  • After taking a 6-2 in the top half of the 4th inning, the wheels started to come off for Tylor Megill and the Mets. The Rockies responded quickly with a 4 spot of their own, followed by 5 runs in the bottom of the 5th. COlorado’s 4th and 5th innings saw them torch Mets pitching with 6 extra-base hits. All of a sudden, Colorado was out in front 11-6 and never relinquished that lead.

Valiant effort

No matter the deficit, games at Coors Field are never over until the last out is recorded. The Mets made a valiant effort to steal the rubber game, cutting Colorado’s 9th-inning lead from 5 to 1, but ultimately coming up short in the end.

Alvarez again

After a slow start, Francisco Alvarez is finally showing why he was deemed baseball's number-one prospect. After a weekend of three-run homers, Alvarez is quickly up to 8 round-trippers on the season.

Bullpen, sans Nogosek

Without Stephen Nogosek’s horrid outing, New York's bullpen performed quite well, shutting out the Rockies over 3 innings.
