MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets

Game recap May 20: That’s baseball, Amed

WHO WON: The Fightin’ Amed Rosario’s WHAT HAPPENED, A MATTER OF TIME: If you want an accurate recap of how the Mets hit, don’t look at Clay Buchholz’s line.

MLB: Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Game recap May 6: The Ian Desmond Game

WHO WON: The Ian Desmond-led Colorado Rockies WHAT HAPPENED, NOAH SYNDERGAARD DID NOT HAVE A NICE START: The easiest thing to do is to start with the negative.
