After scampering home to score the Mets' game-winning run on Friday night, Robert Gsellman declared himself the fastest pitcher on the Mets. Noah Syndergaard disagrees.

Mets bullpen pitches six scoreless in extra-inning victory

Mets bullpen pitches six scoreless in extra-inning victory

Robert Gsellman scored the game-winning run in the twelfth, driven in by Yoenis Cespedes. It certainly feels like every victory the 2018 Mets have had has been a nail-biting rollercoaster ride. Friday night was certainly no exception, as the Mets pulled out a victory over the Braves in twelve innings in Atlanta on the back of a fantastic performance by the bullpen and some timely hitting. The Braves started off the game with a bang when young Braves upstart Ozzie Albies sent a 99.6 mph fastball from Noah Syndergaard over the right field wall for a solo homer in the first...

Braves blow bullpen battle, lose 5-3 to Mets in 12th

Hitting the batting relief pitcher ultimately proved to be the Braves’ undoing after Sean Newcomb and Noah Syndergaard battled to a standstill.

Josh Ravin, reinstated to the active roster today following the departure of Lucas Sims worked in and out of trouble in the 11th until finally yielding runs in the 12th, allowing the Mets to even the series at one apiece. The game started out in exciting fashion for the Braves. Sean...

Preview: Newcomb, Braves have to deal with Syndergaard in Friday night tilt

Nuke vs. Thor Raise your hand if you thought that when the Braves and Mets first met this season, they’d be battling for first place in the division. Now raise your other hand if you had Matt Wisler making a start for the Braves in April, much less dominating the Mets en route to a blowout win in the series opener. If your hands are both raised, I don’t know what to tell you: you look a little silly, following the instructions you read in a game preview post on the internet, and you’re a wizard, I guess. Good for you. The Braves will need to pull another rabbit out of their rally caps...

Why this Mets win felt like Game 162

You are a Mets fan and you were thinking the worst. Four batters into the game Steven Matz had allowed a three-run homer to Ryan Zimmerman. Seven innings done and the Mets had two hits.

Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, April 9-15

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. The Mets’ bullpen continues to be lights out, which has been essential for the Mets’ success with their starters failing to go deep into games. In fact, Zack Wheeler’s first start of 2018 was the longest for any Mets’ starter this season. It appears Noah Syndergaard may also be hitting his stride, which would be very big for the Mets. Noah Syndergaard is the only member of the starting rotation to have two starts this week. He pitched 11 1⁄3 innings over those two starts to a 0.79 ERA, striking...
