The Mets offense continued to hit, but the Royals bats would not be denied, as the Mets dropped a high scoring affair on Saturday afternoon.

After a rather ho-hum 6-1 Mets victory in game one of the weekend series, the Mets and Royals put a combined 18 runs on the board in the Saturday matinee. The Royals came out ahead this go round, however, as they continued their exciting start to the season by dropping 11 runs on the Mets, handing our...
