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.

He gave up two runs in the second [...]
After the Mets narrowly avoided being swept by the Nationals,they open up the Dodgers series with another loss as Santana delivered another lackluster performance. Murphy and Valdespin were great, but the rest of the guys could not capitalize so Mets lose tonight 7-6. Johan Santana does not like pitching in the second half so far. Another rough start as he allowed six earned runs on seven hits, two homers, two walks, while striking out three [...]
Welcome back to the second half of the season, folks! Mets opened up their series in Atlanta against the Braves, and everybody is really missing Dillon Gee. Mets pitchers implode in 7-5 loss. The night the lights went out in Georgia… After an early sixteen minute power outage delay in Turner Field, the ballgame continued and already the Mets were down 2-0 in the first inning. After Chris Young gave up an RBI single to [...]
The Mets have had terrible luck in the White North of Canada against the Blue Jays. Luckily with David Wright back, they were able to put some runs on the board. After two short starts from Jon Niese and Miguel Batista, we were able to find a starter that could at least reach the seventh inning. Dillon Gee had a nice start that was exactly what the Mets needed. Allowing three runs on five hits, [...]
Game Summary Mets avoid a sweep against the Phillies and end a five game losing streak as the Mets take a 7-4 win thanks to the man nobody remembers, Nick Evans.

He got knocked for three runs on nine hits, two walks, and two Ks. Not terrible, but Mike Pelfrey [...]
Game Summary Poor defense, thirteen men left-on-base, and poor pitching cost Mets another loss despite late inning rally. Fall ten back of WC with 9-5 Loss. Game Notes RA Dickey, bad start, good finish, no luck. Twenty-four starts, five wins. He was off to a poor start to the season, but haven’t had the chance to win. Five runs given up in the first three innings, but nothing in his next three innings. Six innings, [...]

After losing two of the biggest offensive attributes, the Mets rallied late to get the walk-off victory, 9-8! Game Notes Mike Pelfrey; here we go again. Another Mike Pelfrey sub-par start tonight. He’s not the groundball pitcher we knew a couple years ago with his impressive sinking fastball. Expect him to be the first person sent out of [...]
Game Summary Mets snap a five game losing streak with an offensive outburst.

Niese didn’t have his A game but the offense helped him and bullpen was decent. Mets outslug and out run the Braves in an eleven-seven win! Game Notes Jon Niese is at the point where usually where he [...]
Game Summary A Mike Pelfrey-esque start, a bullpen hold, a bad pitch by Izzy, poor offense against a 4+ ERA starter, and plenty of mental mistakes. A game Duda tied late, was lost in extras. Another one of those games. Mets lose 7-3. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey. What else can we say about him that hasn’t already been said about him? He’s not that good. Sure, he’s kept his team in it with only three runs [...]
