In the New York Post today:

The Mets’ Taijuan Walker made his debut in this game by serving up a homer to his former Mariners battery mate Mike Zunino, now with the Rays, and striking out the Royals’ Whit Merrifield during his one inning of work.

“I had a good time. It was fun,” Walker said. “I got myself a strikeout and gave up a homer to a teammate who knows how I pitch.”

The highlight, he said, was “just hearing my family [his wife, mother and siblings] scream for me. I heard them scream for me when I got the strikeout.”

Taijuan Walker (P) NY-N - Jul. 03
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=789608

Walker (7-3) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks over 5.2 innings in a win over the Yankees on Saturday. He also had five strikeouts.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Walker was working on a no-hitter in the sixth inning until Aaron Judge took him deep to center field with one out. He departed the game two batters later having already thrown 106 pitches, but left with a plenty-comfortable 8-2 lead. Walker has been one of the top free-agent signings of the 2021 season, holding opponents to three runs or fewer in 13 of his 15 starts while posting a 2.44 ERA that ranks 10th in the National League.
