Dillon Gee had a subpar outing, and the combination of poor defensive play by Daniel Murphy & Lucas Duda led to the Mets receiving their first loss of the season, a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Washington Nationals. Game Recap Dillon Gee started the game on a bad note, giving up a lead-off home run to Ian Desmond. Gee was hit hard all day and obviously didn’t have his best control, but getting [...]
Jose Reyes hit two home runs in his chase for the batting title, and Chris Capuano pitched six strong innings in the Mets 4-3 win against the Reds Game Notes Chris Capuano went out today, and had his strikeout stuff today. Capuano went six innings, allowing three runs on five hits including two longballs, both to lefties, while walking one and striking out nine. Capuano has been very good for the most part all year, [...]
This is beginning to get ridiculous now. First the Mets removed Izzy from the closer role and asked him to groom Parnell to be the teams closer. Now since Parnell has blown 5 saves in 10 chances they have decided to try John Franco as a potential mentor/tutor? I am getting a little tired of this whole thing. He throws really really hard, but THAT’S IT! He has never been consistent with his secondary pitches [...]
Dillon Gee had another good outing, but the bullpen struggled late and the Mets stranded 17 runners in their 3-2 loss to the Nationals. Game Notes Dillon Gee had another outing just short of quality, going five and two-third innings, giving up two runs on six hits, walking two and striking out five. Gee was strong for his whole outing, minus the sixth inning when he was hit hard for both of his runs. Gee [...]
Mike Pelfrey had another poor outing, but the offense spearheaded by Lucas Duda’s second home run in two days rallied to snatch a win from the Nationals, 6-3. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey took the mound, and as has been a recent theme has not had his best stuff, and when he runs into that one bad inning, it doesn’t end. Pelfrey threw 106 pitches over 4 and two-third innings, giving up three runs on five hits, [...]
Now that Jason Isringhausen has recorded his 300th save, Terry Collins told reporters that he would start weaning one of his younger relief pitchers—Bobby Parnell or Pedro Beato—to become the team’s pitchers. Izzy was just what this team needed this year, whether it was his ability to get clutch outs in big spots or the leadership he provided to the younger players. However, the likelihood that he returns next year is minimal to say the [...]
Chris Capuano pitched a great six innings and the Mets defense managed to falter again in their 4-3 loss against the Marlins Game Notes Chris Capuano had a great outing after a few bad outing including two against the Marlins. Cap went six innings, allowing two runs on four hits, striking out five and walking two. As has been Capuano’s strong suit, he gave up two long balls to account for two of the four [...]
The Mets offense jumped on Nationals starting Chien Ming Wang early, and Dillon Gee pitched a quality game in their 8-5 win. Game Notes Dillon Gee was on point today, and without one defensive miscue may have only allowed one run for his entire outing. Gee went six and two third innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits, walking four and striking out five. Gee was a little wild, hitting two batters but [...]
Dillon Gee had a shaky start, and Bobby Parnell blew the game in the eighth inning as the Mets lost 5-4 to the Marlins. Game Notes Dillon Gee had a rough outing, giving up three runs on seven hits, walking three and striking out three. It took Gee 96 pitches to get through five innings, and he consistently found himself in trouble. The Marlins were being patient, and making Gee work to even get outs. [...]
Mike Pelfrey had another mixed outing, and the return of David Wright helped the Mets in their 7-6 win against the Marlins Game Notes Mike Pelfrey had yet another uneven outing, but this one was marred by control issues and some bad defense. Mike went six innings, allowing four runs on five hits, walking four and striking out three. Pelfrey’s been trending more towards a fly ball pitcher, and today two of those fly balls [...]
