Mike Pelfrey had a poor outing today and the Mets managed hits, but couldn’t turn them into runs and they lost the series finale against the Tigers, 5-2. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey had a horrible outing today, allowing four runs on eight hits in four and two-third innings, striking out three but walking five. Pelfrey had poor control and paid for it in the third inning, which was essentially the inning he unraveled. An error [...]
Jason Bay & Carlos Beltran had grand slams in consecutive innings, and R.A. Dickey had another quality outing in the 14-3 blowout of the Detroit Tigers Game Notes R.A. Dickey came out today and seems had the luck on his side and was blessed with run support. Outside of that, R.A. went seven innings, allowing three runs on ten hits, including two home runs while walking three and striking out six. Dickey had some good [...]
Dillon Gee pitched around some early inning trouble, and the offense put up enough runs to put the game out of reach as the Mets won the game, 8-5 and the series versus the Rangers Game Notes Dillon Gee was effective, if not spectacular in his six innings of work today. He allowed three runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out one while allowing one HR. Gee looked to be doomed in the [...]
Jonathon Niese pitched a solid game and the offense sparked by Jose Reyes beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Tuesday. Game Notes Jonathon Niese went a quality six and one third innings, giving up two runs on five hits, striking out five and walking one. After some early season control trouble Niese has been extremely good, as has the whole Mets pitching staff. To see this staff come around without Johan Santana and without anything [...]
Given all the turmoil surrounding the New York Mets coming into 2011, not many expected anything from the team, during 2011. Coming into the season, speculation arose; perhaps 2011 would be a wash year for the Mets and phase-1 of a long rebuilding process. But, here we stand June 13, and the New York Mets are flirting with the .500 mark and are very much alive in both the National League Wild Card race and [...]
According to Mike Puma in today’s New York Post, Carlos Beltran has expressed his desire to see Jose Reyes in a Mets uniform in 2012 and beyond. After the Mets scorched the Pirates for seven runs over the final three innings of yesterday’s 7-0 victory, Beltran had this to say about the front office and his teammate: “They should make the effort and try to sign him, for sure. He grew up in this organization. [...]
Chris Capuano and the bullpen combined for a shutout and the offense exploded in the late innings for a 7-0 win against the Pirates Game Notes Chris Capuano pitched a strong seven innings today, giving up three hits, allowing six total baserunners (two via walk, one via HBP) and five strikeouts. Capuano kept inducing weak contact and surprisingly, ground balls which allowed him to get out of trouble. The only thing that worries me about [...]
Dillon Gee had another stellar outing, going eight innings and the Mets offense kept it rolling in the 8-1 slaughter of the Pirates Game Notes Dillon Gee had another outstanding inning, and outside of a troublesome first inning, Gee pitched masterfully. Gee’s final line was eight innings, one run allowed on eight hits with NO walks and five strikeouts. Gee did receive some help from his defense with some great plays by Jose Reyes and [...]
It’s funny how the two players that we all figure will be traded by the end of the season—Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran—are carrying the New York Mets. After Reyes’ go-ahead triple Tuesday night, Beltran came through with a game-tying double off Kameron Loe in the eighth inning last night. However, it hasn’t just been Reyes and Beltran coming through in clutch situations. Despite the tough loss, first-time cleanup hitter Angel Pagan had the go-ahead [...]
R.A. Dickey pitched a great game today going eight strong innings and thanks to some good run support on the heels of Jose Reyes, the Mets won 6-4 and won the series against the Braves Game Notes R.A. Dickey look substantially better today then he had in his last outing. Although his foot still seemed to be bothering him, specifically when running after batting, he was in control today. Dickey went eight innings, allowing one [...]
Jonathon Niese had a great start, but the bullpen collapsed YET AGAIN and the Mets lost against the Braves, 6-3 Game Notes Jonathon Niese pitched a great game, going seven and two-third innings giving up two runs on eight hits striking out seven and walking one. Niese had everything working today, and with most Mets starters recently, the gas seemed to be running low in the eighth inning. What that has meant usually, is exactly [...]
