Padres 4, Mets 3: Lamet shines in debut

This is what the future looks like. In a terrible season, it’s important to focus on the bright spots, and Dinelson Lamet’s debut was absolutely a bright spot. Unless, of course, you were one of the eight Mets the rookie punched out. .@LametRHP brought the tonight! pic.twitter.com/XoP1KwhDFo— San Diego Padres (@Padres) May 26, 2017 The one run Lamet allowed in his five innings of work came when he offered Lucas Duda a 95 mph fastball right down the middle. Outside of that, he gave up just two more hits and a pair of walks. The Friars had their pitcher’s back from the get go,...

Final Score: Padres 4, Mets 3—Less than stellar

The Mets left a bunch of runners on base and lost a series to the worst team in baseball. The Mets lost the rubber game against the Padres on Thursday night by a score of 4-3. Rafael Montero got the spot start with Jacob deGrom moved back a day, and it predictably did not go well. Montero pitched only three innings, giving up three runs on three walks and five hits with four strikeouts. He threw 87 pitches in just the three innings. The Mets bullpen was able to hold the Padres scoreless from then until the ninth inning, when Addison Reed gave up another run. On offense, Lucas Duda hit a...

Final score: Mets 7, Angels 5—Two in a row

The Mets beat the Angels again. The Mets beat the Angels again this evening, this time 7-5. Zack Wheeler was very good for five innings but struggled a bit in the sixth. Still, the Mets’ offense had built a 4-0 lead over the course of the first few innings of the game, and even when the Angels plated two runs in the sixth, things were going fairly well. In the bottom of the eighth, Lucas Duda doubled with two outs and nobody on, and that turned into a three-run inning for the Mets. Those insurance runs proved to be very important, as the combination of Neil Ramirez—who loaded the...

Final Score: Diamondbacks 5, Mets 4 - Leave Me Milone

The losing streak continues The Mets lost another game in the desert tonight, dropping their second straight series and their second straight game to the Diamondbacks, 5-4.

The game also included an errant throw to home from Lucas Duda, a memory that many Mets fans had repressed since the 2015 World Series. Rene Rivera and Curtis Granderson provided the offense for the Mets tonight, but...
