Final Score: Mets 3, Phillies 2 - A win, but still no cigar

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports The Mets won, but their position in the standings remains bleak. After dropping the first two games against the Phillies and each of their last five, the Mets bounced back with a 3-2 win on Sunday Night Baseball. Dom Smith and Jeff McNeil were the offensive heroes (as much as one can call anyone on this team a hero), with the former driving in two with a pinch hit double and the latter putting the Mets up with a long solo home run. Rich Hill allowed only two earned runs and struck out seven, but did not factor into the decision after...

NY Mets prospect traded for Rich Hill is on fire in Single-A

All it cost the New York Mets to pick up Rich Hill from the Tampa Bay Rays in July was an injured veteran reliever, Tommy Hunter, and a minor league catcher none of us were familiar with. Since joining the Mets, Hill has performed close to what I think everyone expected. His ERA in Tampa […] NY Mets prospect traded for Rich Hill is on fire in Single-A - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Meet the Mets With an opportunity dangling in front of them against the team just ahead of them in the Wild Card standings, the Mets fell flat, getting shut out by Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals 7-0. Rich Hill did enough to keep the game close, but Yennsy Díaz imploded in the ninth inning, which turned the game into a laugher.

NY Mets News: Rich Hill offers a survival guide to players in big markets

The fight between the New York Mets players and fans is long over. But that doesn’t mean the booing has completely subsided. Booing is a part of life and they will no doubt make plenty more appearances at Citi Field over the years. Veteran Rich Hill, who has said all of the right things since […] NY Mets News: Rich Hill offers a survival guide to players in big markets - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Sandy Alcantara was on, Luis Rojas was off

Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports The Mets couldn’t get to Alcantara and couldn’t get past their manager’s poor in-game skills. The Mets and Marlins played a long, drawn out, sloppy slog of a game last night, which ended with a Mets victory. Reverse all of that, and you’ve got tonight’s game, which ended 2-1 in the Marlins’ favor. The Mets sent Rich Hill to the mount tonight in Miami. Hill, after a six-inning, shutout performance in Washington over the weekend, followed that up with a six-inning, one run affair in Miami. Hill struck out eight and walked none,...

Final Score: Marlins 2, Mets 1 - Extra inning, extra frustrating

Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports Luis Rojas blows the game for the Mets with an incredibly dumb pitching decision. The Mets and the Marlins went toe to toe tonight in Miami in a pitcher’s duel that was the polar opposite of last night’s sloppy slugfest. However, due to some ill-advised managing by Luis Rojas, the Mets lost the game 2-1 in extra innings. Sandy Alcantara lived up to his ace status, throwing a nine-inning, one run effort, striking out 14 and walking just one. Rich Hill also threw one of his best starts as a Met, going six innings and just allowing one...

NY Mets: Most productive trade deadline acquisition is a shock

Rich Hill had a shot to help lead the New York Mets pitching staff to victory. Javier Baez was the bat the club added to kickstart the offense. Trevor Williams was the throw-in immediately assigned to the minor leagues. A little more than a month after the 2021 trade deadline, things haven’t gone as expected.

Alonso and the -illars support Rich “Capitol” Hill as Mets win in D.C.

Photo by Greg Fiume/ Díaz blows the save in the ninth but Mets win it in the tenth The first of a five-game series against the Nationals went according to plan for the Mets, until it didn’t, and then the offense scored a bunch of runs in the tenth inning to secure a 6-2 win in D.C. Lane Thomas led off the bottom of the first with a single off Mets’ starter Rich Hill, but was erased on the base paths on the very next play. Alcides Escobar sent a line drive into center field that Brandon Nimmo chased down, and when Thomas turned to run back to first after having...
