Mets' Matz a hero -- sandwich, that is
New York's Steven Matz -- who allowed two runs in 7 2/3 IP and went 3-for-3 with 4 RBIs in his MLB debut Sunday -- visited the hometown deli that named a sandwich after him with teammate Jacob deGrom on Monday. Matz didn't order his personal sub but called it "cool" to have his own hero. (via Newsday)
