After discussing fender-benders in the rear, Jerry Recco was cleared by the guys to begin his first update of the morning. And he responded with the scoop from the Mets’ 9-0 win over the Diamondbacks, which was highlighted by the return of Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who responded with a home run and three RBIs after being recalled from Triple-A.
Jenrry Mejia earned the win but left the game after five innings due to a blister. Terry Collins commented on the injury and his pitcher’s well-being afterwards.
