On the A’s podcast with Barbara:
#1 Pete Alonso set a team RBI mark which speaks to the success of New York Mets. Alonso homered, doubled and drove five runs to set a team record.
#2 Met’s pitcher Max Scherzer pitched six innings to hold down the Oakland A’s for the lopsided win at the Oakland Coliseum 13-4 as the Mets take two out of three from the A’s.
#3 With the win the Mets now are 1.5 games ahead of the Atlanta Braves for the NL East title.
#4 The Met’s are hot winning eight of their last ten games and in Sunday’s game it just seemed as soon as the Mets starting swinging the bats the A’s were in the rearview mirror.
#5 A’s open up a three game series with the Los Angeles Angels starting Tuesday night at the Big A in Anaheim. Starting for the A’s James Kaprielian (4-9, 4.43) he’ll be opposed by the Angels Patrick Sandoval (6-9, 3.01) first pitch at 6:38 pm PDT
