Rookie catcher 2-out, 2-hit 9-inning blowout powers, fourth straight victory

6:15 a.m. UTC

PHOENIX – Francisco Alvarez spun in a semicircle, turning to face the visiting dugout on Chase Field, as his teammates had already spilled onto the field. Alvarez shouted, pounding his chest with his fist, then raised his arms to flex his muscles. The rest of the Mets shatter their agreement, caught up in the moment and aware of its implications.

Alvarez had just scored a game-tying two touchdowns with two outs in the ninth inning, to seal a 2–1 victory over the Mets that Mark Kanha helped lead off with a two-run home run later. Down to the final blow, Alvarez changed the narrative again. He struck out a winner off Kodai Senga, who deserved no less after a masterful eight innings with 12 career strikeouts.

Alvarez sent the no longer reeling Mets to their fourth consecutive win. Then he danced. Bend over. He yelled and howled his way around the bases.

“I did everything to celebrate that moment,” Alvarez said, laughing with his interpreter.

“You can always count on plays from him,” Kanha added.

Singa called it “amazing”. Manager Buck Showalter noted that Alvarez “doesn’t shy away from the moment,” which was undeniably true this week more than at any time in his career. On Tuesday, Alvarez hit a go-ahead, two-run homer to send the Mets to victory. Night later, he added a great shot to his growing list of clutch offerings.

Alvarez said, “In that moment, the way I think is, ‘What’s the worst that could happen?'” “The worst that can happen is losing the match. So at the end of the day, what I try to do is try to go out and compete, try to put the fight in, and really try to give my best.”

Through efforts like his, the Mets are beginning to resemble the never-say-die 101 edition that spent most of last summer at No. 1. These Mets are probably a long way from the Braves for a serious run for the NL East crown, but even with a 40-46 record, they’re still within striking distance of a Wild Card berth.

More than that, they are less than four weeks away from the trading deadline which could shape their chances of being competitive.

The win now gives general manager Billy Eppler more justification to be a buyer — or at least not a seller — at that point.

So it was heartening for Singa to stand in the dugout and watch Alvarez run around the bases, and not just for personal reasons. In his most dominant start of the season, Senga hit his best strikeout score while setting new highs in innings pitched (eight) and pitches (107). Likewise, it was an uplift for Alvarez to watch his handwork result in the win, after Kanha drove home and David Robertson capped things off with a ninth clean. And that was memorable – if a little serious – for Brit Patti.

“Everyone was so excited,” Alvarez said.

why not? This was easily one of the most dynamic wins of the season for the Mets.

The question is what comes next. Over the past decade or more, the Mets have filled many disappointing seasons with sporadic highlights. Wednesday could become another example after all.

Or, if the Mets still win, it could mark a bona fide turning point in their season.

“Before this little streak, we felt like it was going in the opposite direction a lot of the time,” Kanha said. “We couldn’t have that big a hit when we needed it. It’s good to see that starting to get our way.”
