One ‘tough hop,’ and it was all over the Mets PHILADELPHIA — For a second, it looked like Seth Lugo had done just enough to escape the seventh inning while hanging onto the lead. But Tomas Nido could not do the same for Lugo’s curveball in the dirt. Scott Kingery struck out, but reached first on...

A Working Theory Of What The Mets Are Even Doing Right Now On Sunday, the Mets did two unusual things.
