NY Mets beat Texas Rangers as Eduardo Escobar, Starling Marte homer


- Advertisment -

NEW YORK — With a division lead that was once thick getting thinner by the day, the Mets were in desperate need of ending a homestand on a positive note on Sunday. Needing a bounce back start by Carlos Carrasco and more runs from a struggling offense, the Mets got both in a 4-1 win to take the weekend series against the Texas Rangers.

The win for Buck Showalter made 1,600 career wins for the Mets skipper, putting him all alone for 22nd place on the all-time managerial wins list.

Carlos Carrasco earned his ninth win of the season, allowing only a solo home run across 5.2 innings pitched. The bullpen of Joely Rodriguez, Adam Ottavino and Edwin Diaz combined to keep the Rangers off the scoreboard. Diaz walked one and allowed a single while earning his 18th save, but struck out a pair and had Leody Taveras fly out as the tying run to end the game.

With a loss by the Atlanta Braves on Sunday, the division lead for the Mets (49-30) grew by a game, back to 3.5 games in first place.

New York Mets' Starling Marte (6) celebrates with Brandon Nimmo, center, and Francisco Lindor (12) after hitting a two-run home run off Texas Rangers starting pitcher Martin Perez (54) in the first inning of a baseball game, Saturday, July 2, 2022, in New York.

All Starling

Beginning Tuesday, Starling Marte is one of two Mets players in the second phase of voting for the All-Star Game later this month. Marte probably wishes he could play the Texas Rangers more often, striking a solo home run off Texas starter Jon Gray that gave the Mets an early lead. Marte now has an 18-game hitting streak against the Rangers, who do not appear again on the Mets schedule this season.
