Mets Roll, Astros Get Another Walk Off, Detmers Immaculate In Defeat

Jonathan Grant | August 1st, 2022

The New York Mets are on a roll at the moment, so much so that they are officially MLB’s hottest team currently having won six games in a row. Their latest win came on Sunday via 9-3 result in Miami over the Marlins as they took full advantage of a quick start to jump out to a lead they never relinquished. Francisco Lindor had three hits and Mark Canha drove in two runs and scored a pair as well as they helped power their team to yet another win that keeps them in charge of the NL East by three over chasing Atlanta.

Elsewhere, the Houston Astros were once again producing a walk off performance, beating the Seattle Mariners 3-2 in ten on Sunday afternoon. And it was Yordan Alvarez that once again came through in the clutch, singling against the shift to win the contest against Houston’s closest AL West rivals. He’s seemingly done it umpteen times, and this is just the latest in the long line of winning knocks. And finally, the Los Angeles Angels’ Reid Detmers threw an immaculate inning in defeat as they fell 5-2 to the Texas Rangers. Detmers became the first pitcher in seven years with both a no-hitter and an immaculate inning in a single season, but unfortunately for him and the team it’s merely a consolation in what has been a rough couple of months.
