Mets Morning News for May 9, 2018

Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Reds beat the Mets 7-2 on Tuesday night. In his third start of the season, Jason Vargas once again was very disapointing, lasting just four innings and giving up four runs. The Mets’ offense on the night came from a Wilmer Flores home run and an Adrian Gonzalez bases loaded walk which forced in a run. The Mets will play the rubber game of the series this afternoon with Zack Wheeler taking the mound. Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long. Newsday, NY Post, Daily News, and Bergen...

Oh, that’s where I left my extra-base hits

Oh, that’s where I left my extra-base hits

Howie said it best: A trip to Great American Ball Park is a cure for quiet bats. Long balls carried the Mets to a 7-6 win over the Reds in the first game of their three-game series. P.J. Conlon, the first Irishman to make his debut in Major League Baseball since 1945, fared only slightly better than Homer Bailey, as both teams pounded extra-base hits left and right. The Mets’ bats prevailed in the end, however, led by two home runs from Adrian Gonzalez. Homer Bailey lived up to his name from the get-go, as Michael Conforto tucked the second pitch of the game inside the...

Final Score: Mets 7, Reds 6 - The streak is over, long live the streak

Final Score: Mets 7, Reds 6 - The streak is over, long live the streak

The Mets won for the first time in more than a week in P.J. Conlon’s major league debut. It wasn’t exactly pretty, but the Mets hung on to defeat Cincinnati in the opening of their three game set, 7-6. The offense was cooking early, launching four home runs in the first five innings (Michael Conforto, Jay Bruce, and Adrian Gonzalez twice) in support of P.J. Conlon, who was good enough in his spot start for Jacob deGrom. Paul Sewald and Robert Gsellman coughed up runs to make things closer, but Jeurys Familia locked down the win with a clean ninth. Conlon went 3.2 innings in his major...

Adrian Gonzalez bashes two homers to halt Mets’ skid

CINCINNATI — Yoenis Cespedes likely would have crawled to home plate on his sore right leg Monday if it meant staying in the lineup to face this brutal Reds pitching staff in this bandbox. Here was a night every member of this underachieving Mets lineup needed. Four homers later, the Mets declared their losing streak...

Adrian Gonzalez about to lose playing time -- not his roster spot

Adrian Gonzalez is about to lose playing time at first base to Jay Bruce, but the Mets view the move as a way to create at-bats for Brandon Nimmo and Juan Lagares - and not as a condemnation of Gonzalez's performance.

Mets Morning News for April 30, 2018

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets One day after getting blown out, the Mets returned the favor to the Padres. The offense exploded against the San Diego bullpen with everyone in the lineup getting in on the action. Adrian Gonzalez did the most damage with a double and a home run, but overall it was hard to find someone who had a bad day at the plate. Zack Wheeler was solid on the mound after a shaky first inning. The Mets now come home to take on the streaking Braves and their young phenoms. Choose your recap: Amazin Avenue short and...

Adrian Gonzalez and Mets show no mercy in all-out eruption

SAN DIEGO — For one afternoon in his old stomping ground, Adrian Gonzalez resembled the beast who has spent the past decade-plus terrorizing pitchers. The Mets had received small dosages of this from Gonzalez in his first month with the team, but Sunday came a barrage. Gonzalez drove in five runs, complementing an acceptable start...
