MIAMI – In the hitters' meeting before the game, Jeff McNeil let his teammates know he was going to put them ahead, 1-0 Sunday against the Marlins

McNeil countered with a smile saying "I'll do it on the first pitch."
All-Star Sandy Alcantara was on the mound and McNeil delivered that first-pitch home run as the Mets took that 1-0 lead and turned it into a 6-2 victory over the Marlins Marlins Sunday at Marlins Park and their first road victory in 102 days 
A lot has happened since – most of it bad ̵
Something good has happened, too. McNeil leads all of the baseball with a .349 average and shows no signs of letting up
"It's fascinating once you get to know him, as a human being and as a hitter," 'Todd Frazier told The Post about McNeil after the Mets finally got to leave town with winning smiles. "He reminds me of Juan Pierre kind of hitter, puts the bat on the ball, not as fast but he is a table setter. He battles his butt off. ''
A scout at the game also drew a McNeil lefty-hitter comparison and get ready for this one: "He's got a little George Brett in him," the scout said. "He does not have Brett's power, but the way he kind of leans back and hunches his back, the way he can put the barrel on the ball, it's a bit like Brett."
