Mets send Vargas in pursuit of sweep in Minnesota

The New York Mets had gone an excruciating 13 consecutive road series without gaining a series win when they began their current nine-game road trip by taking two out of three at Miami.

Now the Mets have a chance to make it two series wins in a row on Wednesday afternoon against the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis.

The Mets held on for a 3-2 victory in Tuesday night's opener of the brief two-game set as reliever Edwin Diaz worked his way out of a bases-loaded situation in the ninth by getting Nelson Cruz to pop out on a 3-2 fastball that clocked in at 99.2 mph.
