Prior to Saturday's game against the Marlins, Mets outfielder Michael Conforto felt some good vibes heading into the game after he was moved in the lineup.
Conforto was bumped up to the second spot in the lineup after sitting in the seven hole on Friday. His spot was right before first baseman Pete Alonso.
"Pete's behind me today? Yeah, so I'll probably get some pitches to hit. They're not going to want to face that big boy behind me," Conforto said.
Prediction confirmed, as Conforto plated the Mets' first two runs of the game in the third inning.
After Jeff McNeil knocked a double to right field, the game's first hit, Conforto's shot followed his down the line as it dinged right off the foul ball pole. The Mets went up 2-0 with the home run.
