The New York Mets ended their 10-game, 11-day Southern California road trip with a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday night.
Taijuan Walker started on the bump for New York and tossed six innings of one-run ball while striking out 10. Seth Lugo was the first one out of the bullpen, and he fired 1 1/3 scoreless innings, while Edwin Díaz picked up a five-out save. All five of the outs that Díaz recorded came via the strikeout.
Pete Alonso crushed his 18th home run of the season and had a run-scoring single. J.D. Davis smacked his second homer of the season, and Starling Marte registered an RBI double. Jeff McNeil had three of the team’s 11 hits.
The Mets will get the day off on Monday before they begin a seven-game homestand on Tuesday night, starting with three against the Milwaukee Brewers.
