As Acuña put it after he won the game: “¡Increíble!”
It’s hard to say that something is a “must win” in May during baseball season, but this was about as close it got. Getting swept by the Mets at home definitely would’ve been a major issue. In a game where the offense finally decided to start making some contact with the baseball, they still ultimately scratched and clawed there way back into the game.
They’ll play four more in a row against the Pirates before finally getting an off day.
