Mets Win Seventh Straight, Orioles Match 2021 Wins Total

Jonathan Grant | August 2nd, 2022

The New York Mets just can’t be stopped at the moment. And taking on the Washington Nationals, the basement team in the NL East, only added fuel to that fire, with the Mets winning 7-3 in DC to lift them to a seventh consecutive win on Monday evening. Francisco Lindor led the way with a three-run home run while Pete Alonso also touched all the bases early on. The game might also be remembered well by Juan Soto as the superstar hit a homer in what could be his last performance for the Nats.

We still don’t know if or when he’ll be traded, but it could prove to be his final blast for his current team. Max Scherzer, meanwhile, picked up the win against his former team. Elsewhere, the Baltimore Orioles had an eventful day (more on that later) as they beat the Texas Rangers 7-2. The O’s got an early homer from Cedric Mullins- who finished with three runs and two RBI’s in the contest- that set the tone and allowed them to improve to 52-51 on the year. In doing so, they matched their total of wins from last season two whole months before season’s end. If nothing else, they have certainly improved. You have to say that much.
