Carlos Torres turned in yet another strong start for the Mets today, going six innings and allowing just two runs, en route to a 4-3 victory over the Phillies. Hell, it’s always a good feeling when we sweep the Phillies. Dominic Brown had a hand in both Philadelphia runs off Torres, scoring the first one on a Kevin Frandsen double and driving in the second one with an RBI single in the bottom of the […]
Matt Cain might have made the Mets look like a minor-league through the first eight innings of this ballgame, but they played like a team with some real heart in the ninth to walk away with the win. The Mets came from four runs down for the first time this entire year tonight when a Josh Satin two-run single in the ninth allowed the Mets to walk-off with pride. Yeah, neither team was playing for […]
With a 2.09 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 56.0 innings of work, it was hard to ignore the excellent season that Jeff Walters delivered for Double-A Binghamton in 2013. His 38 saves in the regular season shattered the all-time career and single-season records for Binghamton and in doing so Walters tossed his name in the mix as a future bullpen arm with the Mets. All things considered, I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions that the names Jack Leathersich, Jeurys Familia, Vic Black, […]
It honestly felt like no one on the roster needed that walk-off yesterday more than Travis d’Arnaud. I do not need to sit here and highlight the fact that our young backstop has been struggling recently — considering it’s already been brought up over and over on talk radio, Mets Twitter and what have you. The problem, of course, is that a healthy d’Arnaud was supposed to help anchor us offensively — but the actual […]
The Mets announced that RHP Jeurys Familia will rejoin the team in time for their doubleheader today against the Marlins. After undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow last June, Familia has worked hard to get himself back to the big-league team. Going forward, Familia has put himself in line for a significant role in our 2014 bullpen. During his string of rehab games in the minors, the young righty has pitched well, allowing […]
The strength of the Savannah Sand Gnats this year, much like the Mets, was in their pitching staff. The Sand Gnats might have done a lot of other things right in order to get to their position, but when it came down to a best-of-three series at home for Savannah with Gabriel Ynoa and Steven Matz still to pitch, I felt pretty damn confident about our chances. Ynoa, as you’ve heard, turned in an amazing […]
YNOA BRILLIANT IN 6-0 GNATS WIN The Savannah Sand Gnats moved within one game of clinching their first South Atlantic League Championship in 17 years with a 6-0 shutout of the Hagerstown Suns Thursday night at Historic Grayson Stadium. The Gnats lead the best-of-five-game series two to one. Game four is scheduled for Fridaynight. Starter Gabriel Ynoa fired seven shutout innings for the Gnats to earn the win. After dealing with a runner at third in the first, and a […]
Well, I’ll do my best to put a positive spin on this one, but a loss is a loss no matter what. Zack Wheeler got back on track against the Washington Nationals tonight with seven sharp innings — which is especially impressive considering how well the Nationals have been hitting the ball coming into the series. He gave up eight hits over that span but walked only one — and in fact, allowed his only […]
Savannah 6, Hagerstown 2 The Savannah Sand Gnats banged out six runs to take down Hagerstown, 6-2, and evened up the series at a game apiece. The best-of-5 series will now lead Savannah home, where they will basically play a best-of-3 with Hagerstown on their home field. Savannah’s big guns, Steven Matz and Gabriel Ynoa, should both be available to start any two of those games. Jacob Lugo, better known as Seth Lugo, was on […]
