Mets’ Eduardo Escobar Homer again as hot spring continues


Here are some notable nuggets that happened during Thursday’s Mets spring training action:

Third and long

Third baseman Eduardo Escobar smashed his second homer of the spring after a hung substitution from Josh Rogers in the Mets’ 7-3 loss to the Nationals at Clover Park. Escobar, who hit 28 things last season, is 6-a-side in the Grapefruit League.

Lights out

Mets outfielders lost balls in light during a night game. Brandon Nimmo failed to find a flyball from Alcides Escobar and was forced to dive backwards, the ball bouncing off his glove. Mark Canha has never seen a lazy fly ball from Juan Soto, who raised his arms in confusion before the ball bounced several feet to his left.

I noticed

Tomas Nido, who has a fine spring, hit a home run called a double — thankfully the repeat wasn’t used to overturn the sentence — and put down an RBI single into left field.

Friday schedule

The Mets visit the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium for a 1:05 p.m. game. Jacob deGrom is the scheduled starter but may be scratched after reporting a strain in his right shoulder. Mets’ Eduardo Escobar Homer again as hot spring continues
