McNeil lifts Mets to first series win in over a month


Minutes before Jeff McNeil led off Sunday afternoon’s series finale at Marlins Park, Mets manager Mickey Callaway told his All-Star to work an 11-pitch at-bat before homering.

“I just laughed and said I’d do one on the first pitch,” McNeil quipped.

McNeil did just that, sending fellow All-Star Sandy Alcantara’s first offering just over the right-field wall in the Mets’ 6-2 victory over the Marlins that secured the club’s first series win in more than a month.
