Micheal Conforto stars in Mets win but suffers a nasty collision

Conforto hit the match winning RBI single. But his collision with Jeff McNeil on the warning track grabbed the limelight. He also missed time with concussion but thinks it was his fault only.

“I know the trainers were concerned,’’ Conforto said. “I didn’t feel anything. I knew I got hit in the head. I was just trying to make a play. Honestly, I think I took a bad route to that ball and tried to make up for it and make a [diving] play. I felt fine, just scraped up a little bit, Micheal Conforto said.

Pete Alonso close to a Mets record

While Micheal Conforto hit the winning single, it was Pete Alonso’s homer tha brought Mets so close. Alonso also has now hit 4 consecutive homers, the first for Mets in 3 years. Curtis Granderson last hit the feat in 2016.

Alonso is also now one step closer to Richard Hidalgo’s franchisee record of 5 consecutive homers. Alonso with this one also broke the record of most homers at the Citi Field.

Mets have had a dubious time with consecutive defeats earlier this year. So a start like this would do well to their confidence this time. The Mets though conceeded the first inning scoring streak that lasted upto 7 games in Friday’s win.

Apart from Micheal Conforto collision, there wasn’t much to worry for the Mets. J.D.Davis had another great game with a solo homer. He has now reached base in 17 consecutive home games.
