Mets outfielder DJ Stewart hits the cycle in 8-7 loss against Cardinals – The Mercury News


He didn’t get a win, but he will still remember the game.

Outfielder DJ Stewart went 4-for-4 with four RBI, hitting for the cycle in Sunday’s 8-7 loss to the St. Louis Rams. Louis Cardinals at Clover Field.

Stewart told SNY that bench coach Eric Chavez planned to pull him from the game after hitting a double in his third at bat. The outfielder convinced Chávez to stay in the game, giving him a chance to hit a 351-foot home run to right field to complete the cycle.

It was the first loop in a spring training game since 2020.

“It’s unbelievable,” Stewart told SNY. “It’s my first.”

Stewart joined the Mets for spring training as an undrafted guest. The Baltimore Orioles selected Stewart in the first round of the 2015 MLB Draft. He has major league experience, but only played three games with the Orioles last season. The 29-year-old dropped 0.256/0.390/0.488 with the Orioles Triple-A affiliate Norfolk Tides in 2022.


Lefty David Peterson started in Sunday’s loss, giving up a hit, no runs and four walks in four innings of work. Peterson struck out four batters.

Righty Tylor Megill struggled on the mound, allowing six runs (three earned) and six hits in 3.2 innings of work.

“Not my best day, to say the least,” Megill said. “Couldn’t locate a slider today. So that was a big problem.”

Coach Buck Showalter said after the game that Megill was “fine” and that the right-hander got some extra time on the mound due to roster restrictions.

“His stuff is good, we just gave them a bunch of extra outs… sometimes play is another by-product of [World Baseball Classic] because we have a lot of kids playing that normally wouldn’t be playing. It’s not their fault,” Showalter said.

The manager added that “there will be a lot of factors there” when deciding between Megill and Peterson for the starting fifth spot.

“I take comfort in knowing that these two guys are capable of getting the job done,” Showalter said.


Outfielder Brandon Nimmo told reporters Sunday he believes he will be ready to start on Opening Day after suffering ankle and knee sprains. Nimmo, who signed an eight-year, $162 million contract in the offseason, said the diagnosis was a “best-case scenario” and that he “is taking it day in and day out.”

Nimmo left Friday’s game after awkwardly sliding. Later imaging revealed a low-grade sprain to her right knee and ankle. The team initially considered it week by week.
