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 [...]
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 [...]
Mets finally win their second straight game in July. Scott Hairston launches two, and Jason Bay touches the plate three times in a late night offensive battle against the Giants. Mets end up on top, 8-7 in ten innings. Despite what the scoreboard says, Jeremy Hefner did well tonight. He just got pulled a couple batters too late. The game was tied at two entering the sixth inning, and Hefner strikes out the first batter [...]
The Mets tried to keep the wins coming, but Jon Niese was no Matt Harvey out there. Despite two Mets homeruns, they were decimated in a 11-5 loss to the Arizona D-Backs Jonathon Niese with one horrific inning, put up several unwanted numbers in his line tonight. The second inning started with a simple 6-3 ground out. That quickly turned to bases loaded with just the one out. Niese then walks former Met, Henry Blanco, [...]
It seems like the first two games in Chicago are just a blimp on the Mets memories these days as they continue to knock around the Dodgers. After a close game on Thursday, the Mets went back to one-sided ball games with an offensive explosion and another great start from R.A. Dickey. R.A. Dickey continues to put up big bids on being the All-Star Game starter, and tonight is no different. He even teased us [...]
After a rough Subway Series, the Mets traveled to Chicago to visit the great Wrigley Field to play the Cubs. Johan Santana started for the Mets and has been trying to regroup as he hasn’t pitched that spectacular since his no-hitter. He probably didn’t think he’d have a dueling war against the Cubs’ Travis Wood who only has one win this season and an ERA over four entering the game, but that was exactly what [...]
Jon Niese started tonight to start the series against the Yankees in the second round of the Subway Series. In the last round against the Yankees, Niese gave up no earned runs in seven innings of work which the offense couldn’t capitalize on. This time Niese had some strong innings but also some troubling innings, but he always found a way out unscathed. Unfortunately, the Yankees started feeling like they were back at Yankee Stadium, [...]
After being brutally swept by the Cincinnati Reds, the Mets open their doors to the Orioles and R.A. Dickey tosses his second straight one-hitter and proves that he truly is an AL killer. R.A. Dickey is coming off of that controversial one-hitter/no-hitter against the Rays, and looks to have brought the same knuckleball with him on the plane ride back from Tampa Bay. His first baserunner was in the third inning when he walked the [...]
Mets came back home feeling good after sweeping the first place Rays. Dillon Gee tried to keep the ball rolling but he had no control and was getting batted all over Citi Field. In the second inning, Gee gave up a lead-off inside the park home run to Jay Bruce after Jason Bay slammed into the left field wall chasing down the ball, hitting his head and neck. He came out of the game, able [...]
In his first start since the no-hitter a week ago, Santana, on six days rest, gets slammed by the Yankees. He makes it only five innings allowing seven runs (six earned), on seven hits including a career-tieing four homeruns. Two homers being from Robinson Cano, and three straight homeruns in third in the bandbox known as Yankee Stadium. It was the extra days off that ailed him, along with having his schedule changed with extra [...]
