The New York Mets won Sunday against the Colorado Rockies.
The member of their rotation who raised the most questions, Taijuan Walker (mainly due to the reduction in his strikeout ratio), went ahead with a strong performance against the Rocks on Sunday.
Walker was the winning pitcher and stood on the mound for seven scoreless frames, where he allowed five hits and two walks, including six punches.
This win allowed the Mets to bounce back after the loss.
This year it has become a common occurrence: it is one of the most resilient teams in baseball.

The Mets are a highly resilient group
Think about what that stat represents.
Each time the Mets lose, they bounce with the win, increasing the chances of several wins at once and eliminating the possibility of any bad streaks.
After the loss, their winning streak is the longest in the last 11 years!
They, as a team, know how to respond to adversity and have a brief memory.
What happened the day before remains in the past and does not affect future performance.
That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there.
He may not be the brightest analytical mind, but he knows for sure how to manage an MLB club house and get the best out of his group.
When they reach full health, the mats will be extremely dangerous to stretch and, potentially, in the post-season.
