Mets extended their losing streak to six straight after falling 3-1 to the Houston Astros tonight, despite a strong start by Jon Niese and career home run number 200 for David Wright. Niese has been consistent in his last couple of starts and has kept up the recent string of good pitching from Mets starters. Seven strong innings for Niese where he gave up only three runs. He gave up two runs in the second [...]
You win one, you lose one. Despite an eleven hit attack, the Mets failed to hit with runners on base, leading to a 5-2 loss to the Nats and dropping another series. Jeremy Hefner got the start today and after a very long rain delay, the game finally got underway. After a lead-off single, Hefner was able to strand the runner to retire the side. His second inning involved another lead-off single, followed by a [...]
Mets just can’t keep any sort of winning streak going. Santana gets hit with two homeruns as Kelly Shoppach hits one of his own as Mets lose 6-4 to first place Nats. Johan Santana is still plundering. Santana did go perfect through the first three innings with nine up and nine down. However, the fourth inning was anything but perfect. After allowing three straight hits without recording an out, Michael Morse took Johan deep for [...]
The trade deadline came and went without Arizona moving their best player who is still a couple of weeks shy of 25 years old. That shouldn’t surprise anyone. But the real surprise is that a player like Justin Upton was actually available. Upton went number one overall back in the unreal 2005 draft, ahead of Ryan Zimmerman, MVP Ryan Braun, Troy Tulowitzki, likely MVP Andrew McCutchen, Jay Bruce and Jacoby Ellsbury. By the way, those [...]
Matt Harvey, making his fourth career start for the Mets, was too wild and the Mets offense was shutdown in a 4-0 loss to the Braves at Citi Field. Harvey was plagued by walks tonight, as he allowed five bases on balls. The Mets rookie used his fastball much more than in his last start. Through his first three starts, Harvey threw his fastball 45% of the time, tonight it was over 70%. Luckily, it didn’t cost him too [...]
Mets finally win their second straight game in July. Scott Hairston launches two, and Jason Bay touches the plate three times in a late night offensive battle against the Giants. Mets end up on top, 8-7 in ten innings. Despite what the scoreboard says, Jeremy Hefner did well tonight. He just got pulled a couple batters too late. The game was tied at two entering the sixth inning, and Hefner strikes out the first batter [...]
The Mets tried to keep the wins coming, but Jon Niese was no Matt Harvey out there. Despite two Mets homeruns, they were decimated in a 11-5 loss to the Arizona D-Backs Jonathon Niese with one horrific inning, put up several unwanted numbers in his line tonight. The second inning started with a simple 6-3 ground out. That quickly turned to bases loaded with just the one out. Niese then walks former Met, Henry Blanco, [...]
For the second game in a row, the Mets go to extra innings, and the bullpen implodes. This time it was Beato again who falters and ruins Chris Young’s solid start as Mets lose 8-2 in ten innings. Chris Young pitched the game the Mets needed him to pitch. Arguably his best start of the season as he goes seven strong innings allowing only two runs on three hits. Those two runs came off the [...]
After the Mets narrowly avoided being swept by the Nationals,they open up the Dodgers series with another loss as Santana delivered another lackluster performance. Murphy and Valdespin were great, but the rest of the guys could not capitalize so Mets lose tonight 7-6. Johan Santana does not like pitching in the second half so far. Another rough start as he allowed six earned runs on seven hits, two homers, two walks, while striking out three [...]
