The Mets risked a baserun against the Phillies Friday night — and it paid off.
With the Mets leading 4–0, he successfully completed his home steal with two stolen bases in the fifth inning. After Aaron Nola threw a highball to first baseman Daniel Vogelbach, shortsop Bryson Stott cut catcher J.T. Lindor hit a double.
However, his back throw to Real Muto came too late as Marte homered and doubled his steal to cement his 5-0 lead. Realmut couldn't help but wipe his brows as Marte triumphantly returned to the dugout.
Marte was a good pickup for Mets 4 In the first season of the year, he signed his $78 million deal in the final offseason. He has scored his 68 runs so far and has 16 stolen bases. Seven wins over the Braves. The first multi-homer after joining the Mets.
