Hey Mets fans… we finally did it… our New York Mets not only notched a solid 5-2 win against the Chicago Cubs, but in doing so they won their first series of the young season after losing their first four. Game Notes Johan Santana had to rely on being crafty and pitching smart tonight as he got into and out of jams all night long. He’s still not the Johan of old, but did hit 90 [...]
On a night where the Mets bats were nowhere to be found, Oliver Perez pitched 5 minimally effective innings, but the bullpen surrendered 6 runs in 9-3 loss to Cubs. Game Notes Oliver Perez went out and gave it all he had, going five innings, giving up three runs, two earned, on eight hits. Ollie seemed to have decent control, by his standards walking three and striking out four. This was the second straight “Quality” [...]
In another spectacular outing from Mike Pelfrey, the Mets put up enough offense to beat the Cubs 4-0 for their second straight victory. Game Notes: In a game that was fairly stagnant offensively, Mike Pelfrey managed to hold the Cubs to 6 total baserunners – 3 on hits and 3 on walks in 7 innings. What makes this occurrence even more amazing is the fact Mike Pelfrey pitched an inning in the 2-1 20 inning marathon of [...]
Ike Davis’ debut was a memorable one as he picked up the first two hits of his career. Angel Pagan’s homer broke the game open and the Mets defeated the Cubs 6-1. Game Notes Jon Niese got into a few jams, but time and time again he got out of trouble with a big strikeout whenever he needed one. He pitched a smart game and I was a little miffed to see him taken out [...]
The Mets won game two against the Cardinals 2-1 in 20 innings. It was the longest victory in franchise history. Game Notes Who would have expected Jamie Garcia, a no name pitcher, to go toe-to-toe with a two time Cy Young award winner like Johan Santana? But that’s how it was with both pitchers throwing a gem of a game. Santana was dealing with 9 strikeouts, no runs, 1 walk and only gave up 4 [...]
Despite a 9th inning rally, the Mets wasted a great outing by Oliver Perez, losing 4-3 to the Cardinals Game Notes Oliver Perez went to the hill and pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings, walking three, giving up four hits as well as striking out four. This was the best Perez has looked in quite some time, as he was getting ahead of hitters and putting them away. Although hittable early, he settled into a groove [...]
The Mets avoided a potential five game losing streak and now head to St. Louis on a positive note thanks to Mike Pelfrey who helped deliver a big 5-0 win over the Rockies this afternoon at Coors Field. Game Notes Pelfrey improved his record to 2-0 today with an absolutely dominating performance in which he pitched seven shutout innings and held the Rockies to just five hits, while walking none and striking out a season high [...]
The Mets came out with a flurry, fell asleep and took the loss in 10 innings. Jon Niese had an uneven effort and the Rockies just hit when necessary. Game Notes Jon Niese looked disappointing through the 5 innings. Niese only walked one, but gave up nine hits, hit two batters and struck out two. He couldn’t seem to put away hitters, but minus a three-run homer to Ryan Spilborghs and a bad-call on a [...]
This one was over in the first inning, after Johan Santana served up a grand slam to Josh Willingham. The Mets lose back to back series to two teams that most consider to be cellar dwellers, however it’s the Mets who occupy that spot to begin the season. Game Notes Johan Santana came into todays game with a 6-1 mark against the Washington Nationals, but got totally owned by a Nats lineup that didn’t include all-star [...]
