02 April, 2018, 11:31
The Mets started their 2018 season off on the right foot Thursday with a 9-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field. Yadier Molina tied a team record with his fourth opening day home run.
The best news of the day for the Cardinals came before the game, when it was reported they had reached agreement on a one-year deal with free-agent closer Greg Holland, pending a team physical.
At the plate: The Cardinals struck out 15 times, their highest total ever on opening day. One of the more memorable season-opening series in NY came in 1985 when former Mets closer Neil Allen gave up an extra-inning, walkoff homer in the first game and a game-losing walk in his second game as the Cardinals' closer - which he wasn't for much longer. Dexter Fowler, Tommy Pham and Marcell Ozuna combined to strike out eight times in their 12 at-bats.
Their return to prominence provides the promise of the rekindling of baseball's greatest rivalry as the Boston Red Sox are expected to battle with the Yankees every step of the way for top honors in the American League East.
Mets starter Noah Syndergaard got the win. Bowman and Brett Cecil both inherited runners and both scored.
Rookie Jordan Hicks, making his big-league debut, allowed an infield hit to the first man he faced but then immediately got a double play ball and carved up Jay Bruce for an inning-ending strikeouts, throwing 100, 101 and 102 miles per hour fastballs along with a knee-buckling 86 miles per hour slider. John Candelaria also had 10 strikeouts in 1983 and Francisco Liriano did it two years ago, both while pitching for the Pirates. First pitch is at 1:10 p.m.
The Mets next take the field Saturday for game two of a three-game series against the Cardinals at Citi Field.
