The Mets continue their dominance

The New York Mets continued to take major league baseball by storm in the 2022 season on Monday. This time, they easily defeated the Miami Marlins 6-0 at Citi Field.

With this recent win, the formation of the Big Apple still has the second best performance in the major leagues, with a record of 45-24, behind only the other New York formation: the Yankees (50-17).

Against the Marlins, pitcher David Peterson did well, striking out seven batters. He was finally replaced after five and a third innings, having allowed six hits and two walks.

Offensively, Eduardo Escobar had a strong game, producing half of his team’s points. He first pushed JD Davis to the plate in the fourth inning with a sacrifice fly. He came back to the charge in the eighth inning, as his single allowed Davis and Luis Guillorme to complete their lap of the trails.

The Yankees refuse to be caught

Later that night at Tropicana Field, the Yankees responded to the Mets victory by defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2.

The score was tied 2-2 in the top of the ninth inning when Aaron Hicks hit a triple that allowed Josh Donaldson to cross the plate. Hicks was able to complete his lap of the trails himself, thanks to the next hitter, Jose Trevino, who made a sacrifice fly.

However, it was on the mound that this duel was played out. Visitor starting pitcher Gerrit Cole didn’t allow anything for the Rays hitters. In seven and a third innings, he made 12 opponents bite the dust. He allowed just one run on a hit and three walks. However, it was not him who saw the victory add to his record, but rather Clay Holmes (5-0), who allowed the other point for the Rays, relieving Cole to close the eighth inning. Wandy Peralta, for his part, signed his second save of the season.

Cruz has fun against the Cubs

In Pittsburgh, Pirates shortstop Oneil Cruz was pleased with the Chicago Cubs, who drove in a third of the team’s points in a 12-1 win.

Cruz first came to the plate in the fourth inning, with the bases loaded. He emptied them by hitting a powerful double, but attempting to stretch his hit triple, it was called out.

He also participated in a five-run drive for his team in the seventh inning, which he hit a single (one run).

Elsewhere, Pirates pitcher JT Brubaker (1-7) picked up his first win of the season, not giving up a run in six innings of work.
