Blankenhorn Homers in Return to Syracuse Mets Lineup

He sends a kid scrambling for a souvenir.

Travis Blankenhorn was clearly happy about getting back to the Syracuse Mets lineup.

After clearing waivers, the Pottsville native came back to the Mets Triple-A affiliate on Saturday to face the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. And it didn’t take him long to find his power stroke.

In the first inning, Blankenhorn took a 2-1 pitch to deep right field for his first home run of the 2022 season. It gave the Mets a 1-0 and they’d go on to win their first game of the season, 4-3.

The plate appearance was Blankenhorn’s first since the first game of the season with Syracuse earlier in the week. In that game, he went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles, a walk, and a strikeout. After the game, Blankenhorn was Designated for Assignment until he cleared waivers.

Blankenhorn struck out twice after that homer on Saturday, going 1-for-5 in the game, in which he started at 2nd base.

Syracuse’s final game of the 5-game series with the RailRiders was posponed on Sunday.
