Chris Schwinden made his major league debut and was hit hard in the Mets 6-5 loss, and in the second game of the double header, Dillon Gee overcame early trouble to hand the ball to a bullpen that would cough up two more runs in the Mets second loss, a 5-1 defeat. Game One Chris Schwinden made his MLB debut, and it will probably not be a memorable one for many. Schwinden went five innings, [...]
Dillon Gee pitched a great game and the offense didn’t manage many hits, but a big David Wright hit ensured the 7-3 Mets win. Game Notes Dillon Gee was in control both figuratively and literally up until the seventh inning, after being hit on the right knee in an at-bat the inning before. Gee went six and two-third innings, allowing one run on five hits, walking four and striking out five. Two of the hits [...]
R.A. Dickey pitched seven quality innings, but Tim Hudson held the Mets in check in their 4-1 loss. Game Notes R.A. Dickey had another great outing that was marred by an inability for his offense to score runs for him. Dickey went seven, giving up two runs on five hits, walking none and striking out five, including two in the sixth. Dickey has had good stuff for his last few starts, but his offense [...]
Jonathon Niese went five and one-third innings, and Bobby Parnell ruined a comeback attempt in their 3-2 loss against the Nationals Game Notes Jonathon Niese looked very good for five innings, and then came unraveled in the sixth, allowing three straight doubles. Jonathon’s final line was five and one-third innings, allowing two runs on eight hits while striking out six. Niese looked good, but seemed to lose his location and that summoned his early exit. [...]
After the Francisco Rodriguez deal left the door open for someone to be called up to replace his roster spot, the Mets wasted no time. Ryota Igarashi has been confirmed to have been called up by David Waldstein. Ryota has basically become a three-pitch respectable reliever – throwing a fastball, curveball, and the occasional change-up. Igarashi’s stats down in AAA were nothing short of great: In 31.0 IP, Igarashi has a 0.87 ERA and a [...]
Jonathon Niese had a decent outing, and a big home run by Jason Pridie gave the Mets the win in the series opener versus the Dodgers, 6-3. Game Notes Jonathan Niese had a mixed outing today, being strong in some innings, and then being hittable in another inning. Jonathon was worked hard in the first inning, so his final line was five and two-third innings, with three runs allowed on seven hits with three walks [...]
Chris Young, in his first start off the disabled list had a poor outing, but the Mets offense and bullpen carried them through to a 6-4 series opening win versus the Nationals. Game Notes Chris Young struggled in his first start off the DL, going four and two-thirds innings allowing three runs on four hits, but all the runs scored on home runs, walking two and striking out three. Despite only the two walks, both [...]
It wasn’t a “routine play,” but when Ryota Igarashi had the comebacker in the sixth inning, I thought to myself, ‘Yes! Throw home, step on the plate and then throw on to first base for the double play.’ Instead, Igarashi sailed a throw to Josh Thole, who then had to step on home plate for the force out but didn’t get the inning-ending double play. Instead, Carlos Gonzalez then hit a game-tying two-run single through [...]
After a decent outing from Pat Misch, the Mets nearly managed to come back against the Marlins for the second day in a row, but fell short losing 5-4 Game Notes Pat Misch was hit hard today from the onset of the game, and despite being efficient with his pitches, Misch only managed to go six innings, giving up four runs, three earned on nine hits and four strikeouts. Misch only threw 82 pitches, but [...]
