"It's Juan Lagares Day at Citi Field!"
Gary Cohen's words from the SNY booth captured the feeling Mets fans everywhere, as Lagares helped lead the Mets to an 11-1 win over the D-backs, completing a huge four-game sweep with major Wild Card implications.
Lagares, who has struggled at the plate in his limited playing time this season, broke out in a huge way. He went 2-for-4 at the plate, with both hits being home runs. His grand slam in the bottom of the third inning, the first grand slam he can ever remember hitting in his life, broke the game open early, giving the Mets a 6-0 lead.
