The title is a little sensational, right now there is really a place for Bowman on the team, but yesterday he had a nice start against the Nationals pitching 5.0 innings allowing 2 hits, a walk and striking out 4 batters. In addition to Bowman’s strong performance:
- Familia did not have a good outing allowing 3 ER and 4 hits over 0.2 innings
- Mejia had a good inning allowing a hit and striking out one and doing nothing else
- Alvarez had a good outing pitching a clean inning
- Lagares only had one hit, but it was a homer, his third of the spring
- Flores was back in the lineup and went 1-3, Mayberry also collected a hit
- Reynolds went 2-2 and had a homer
The Mets offense picked it up towards the back half of the game yesterday maintaining their awesome BA, OBP and run scored they’ve shown throughout the spring. Getting closer to Opening Day!
