Recap: Now locking up two consecutive series victories for the first time since the All-Star Break, the suddenly streaking New York Mets came to the ballpark today looking to complete a sweep of the rivaled Philadelphia Phillies. However, that wasn’t the case as Jon Niese failed to fend off the Phils following an early lead, falling by a score of 3-2. With Kyle Kendrick on the hill, the Mets offense took advantage of the short [...]
Matt Harvey, without having his best stuff still had a quality start against the Phillies, thanks to some key offensive contributions from Lucas Duda — Matt Harvey came out of the gate throwing his fastball often, and about as hard as Mets fans have seen in during this 2012 season. Harvey hit 99 MPH at least 5 times, and utilize that fastball for two strikeouts looking. Harvey’s final line would be six and one-third innings [...]
The Mets (59-69) defeated the Phillies (61-67) by the score of 9-5 tonight at Citizen’s Bank Park. Shoppach was the man tonight in a great game against the Phillies where the Mets rallied to come back from defecits twice and put a four spot up in the tenth. Chris Young started tonight and struggled over 4.1 IP, allowing all 5 of the Philadephia runs off four hits and three walks. He struck out two, but allowed [...]
The Mets (58-69) defeated the Astros (40-87) by the score of 3-1 today at Citi Field. RA Dickey furthered his journey for the Cy Young today with another brilliant start. He picked up the first RBI for the Mets on the day too – I guess he was worried that he would not get any support on his own. The final line: 7 great innings while allowing only five hits and a single walk. The only [...]
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 [...]
The Mets (57-65) lost to the Rockies (47-73) by the score of 6-2 on Tuesday evening at Citi Field. “This was the worst ball game the Mets have played all year – fundamentally.” – Keith Hernandez That sums it up for you. Do you really want to read on? Well, alright, your pending high blood pressure. Chris Young started for the Mets and kept them in the game. He pitched the first five innings without allowing [...]
At this stage of the game, all the Mets have left are moral victories. One of those moral victories would be finishing the season at .500, another would be to finish above the Phillies and Marlins. Both of those goals took a hit with tonight’s 3-1 loss to the Rockies at Citi Field. With the defeat, the Mets are now tied with the Phillies for 4th place, 18.5 games behind the first place Nationals. R.A. [...]
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 [...]
The Mets (57-63) defeated the Nationals (74-46) by the score of 2-0 tonight at Nationals Park. Finally, a quick recap that I can write with a splash of positivity behind it. Jon Niese against Edwin Jackson, a pitching matchup that had the chance to be something great, exceeded expectations. Jon Niese started and pitched masterfully through 7.1 innings, allowing just 5 hits and striking out 7. He did not walk a batter, either. He was pulled in the [...]
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 [...]
