Rome 2, Savannah 1 On Sunday afternoon at Historic Grayson Stadium in Savannah, the Rome Braves edged the Sand Gnats 2-1 to gain a split of the two game set. Savannah (5-5) scored their lone run in the bottom of the third inning on an RBI fielders choice by right-fielder Eudy Pina. Sand Gnats hurler Rainy Lara was perfect through the first four innings while striking out five – but he allowed a lead-off [...]
Savannah 8, Rome 6 The Savannah Sand Gnats (5-4) got back in the win column with an 8-6 victory over the Rome Braves, even after relinquishing a four run lead in the seventh. Rome jumped out on top in the first, set up on a fielding error by Gnats shortstop Phillip Evans. Savannah got even on through a Brandon Nimmo sacrifice fly, however, which scored Eudy Pina. The Gnats took a 5-1 lead in the fifth [...]
There was lots of good will to go around Citi Field on Opening Day. And with good reason, as the Mets opened their season superbly. Just about everyone that saw the field contributed. However, there were two large figures that were mostly missing – Ike Davis, and to a lesser extent, Lucas Duda. Davis went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts, while Duda was 0-for-2 with two walks and a strikeout. Both were the only two starters [...]
Interesting April? That is for sure. Expectations are clearly low for the Mets this year. However, they were also low last year, and the team gave fans at least three months of a season before falling off a cliff. Yes, on paper this team doesn’t look good, and they have been hampered by an astonishing number of injuries this Spring. However, this is baseball, and anything can happen. Certainly, a LOT of things will have [...]
I get it. I really do. At this point, no Mets’ fan in their right mind thinks Johan Santana is going to be ready for Opening Day. And it appears the start will go to Jonathon Niese. And out of any other options in the rotation, Niese is probably the one that most deserves it. Shaun Marcum? No. Dillon Gee? No. Matt Harvey? No. Hmmm, on second thought… Look, I’m not even saying that I’m [...]
I spent last week on Lanai, a beautiful and remote Hawaiian Island. Sports, for the most part, was far from my mind. To say that is a rarity for me, is a major understatement. Still weeks from Opening Day, I considered it an opportunity to relax before the frenzy of another baseball season began. Wearing my Ike Davis shirt the last morning, I was approached by an individual asking if I was an Ike Davis’ [...]
Mets offense falls flat once more as R.A. Dickey gets hit for two homeruns against the Phils. Mets lose a rough one, 3-1. R.A. Dickey pitched his heart out, but the offense fell flat for him once more and unlucky mishaps plagued them. A dropped third strike to Rollins in the first caused to be an issue as Dickey gives up a throwing error that moved him to third and then a sac fly brings him in [...]
Mets took game one against the Brewers thanks to a strong start from Jon Niese and bombs from Murphy and Duda. The offensive night led the Mets to a 7-3 victory in Milwaukee. Jon Niese had a great start, and had strong offense behind him. He needed that offense early, as he gives up two quick runs on three straight hits in the second. Niese bounced back nicely with several more zeros to keep the [...]
Despite two long balls, the Mets just narrowly missed taking game one of this series against the Cardinals, thanks to a disputable call at first. Mets lose game one, 5-4. Collin McHugh made his second career start today. He had a spectacular major league debut, but his second game wasn’t so great. He gave up a run in the first as he allows a triple to the first batter to face him. He allowed two [...]
