The Mets, led by Todd Frazier and Pete Alonso homers, scored 10 runs on 23 hits. Alonso went five for five with six RBI including his N.L. rookie-record tying 39th homer. Amed Rosario, batting leadoff after Jeff McNeil was injured, had five hits in six official ABs with two doubles, a triple and four runs scored.
The other games Tenacious D loved was in the Bronx. Though he mentioned the Yankees, he stacked the Indians in his winning lineup.
Some highlights from the 19 runs the Indians scored: Carlos Santana with four runs and three RBIs, including 2 HRs; Greg Allen with four each of RBI, runs and hits including a HR and Jose Ramirez with two HRs and six RBI. Ramirez had his counting stats by the end of the second inning.
8/16 MLBDFS Outlooks: Not surprisingly, the Indians are in the playoff hunt. In the lead for the AL wild-card by two games over Tampa Bay, three and a half over Oakland and nine and a half over Boston, they are also chasing Minnesota for the A.L. Central lead. They are only one-half game behind the Twins.
The Mets are surprisingly in the N.L. playoff chase. They are two games behind the current second wild-card leader, the Cubs. However, the Mets have many more teams to deal with than the A.L .contenders do, with Arizona, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Milwaukee all on the outside looking in but within three and a half games.
Also, David’s pockets will be fatter the rest of the season. Here is the final screenshot:
