Ryota Igarashi showed some rust. He could only get one out before giving up the game winning homer.

Wearing a pad around his wrist, Rod Barajas returned and went 2-for-3.

Apparently Daniel Murphy is going to have to play his way back to Flushing.

A year ago yesterday the Mets were in first place .

Baseball is a long season and it is really important that while everything that has happened so far is important to remember the season is far from over.
