Final Score: Reds 3, Mets 2—Clinging to life

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports The Mets were dealt a big blow to their already minuscule chances. With the Mets basically needing to win every game, they dropped a tough game tonight in Cincinnati. Familiar Mets foe Christian Colon ripped a game-winning single for the Reds against Seth Lugo in the 8th inning to down the Mets as they cling to their slim playoff hopes. The Mets fell behind early in the game when Zack Wheeler struggled in the first, but also was not helped out by his defense. With two on and no out, Todd Frazier booted an easy double play ball, and later in the inning, he...

Outside of Seth Lugo and Justin Wilson, no Mets relief pitcher has an ERA under 4.50 […] Five New York Mets closer options to consider for the 2020 season - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - A New York Mets Blog Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets turned what would’ve been a devastating loss into a thrilling victory to take the series from the Rockies. They rallied for four runs in the ninth with Seth Lugo driving in the final run. Lugo then returned to his usual position and shut the door in the bottom of the inning to nail down the victory. Earlier in the game Pete Alonso hit his forty-ninth home run of the season which inched him closer to Aaron Judge’s rookie home run record. Choose your...

Seth Lugo gets it done for Mets in first at-bat of 2019

DENVER — Seth Lugo figured extended duty was almost a certainty for him Wednesday given the Mets’ schedule. But Lugo couldn’t have anticipated it unfolding in quite this manner. In addition to recording the final six outs in the 7-4 victory over the Rockies, the right-hander batted in the ninth inning and delivered an RBI...

Seth Lugo doesn’t want this Mets closer job forever

It’s tough duty being a relief pitcher in the major leagues. You can be a hero one day, a bum the next. You’re only as good as your last appearance. Seth Lugo was reminded of that Sunday night at Citi Field where his streak of 15 scoreless innings ended when he gave up a crucial...

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports Your Sunday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets pulled out a late 3-0 victory against the Dodgers thanks to a pinch-hit, bases-clearing double by Rajai Davis in the eighth inning off Julio Urias. NL Cy Young Award frontrunners Jacob deGrom and Hyun-Jin Ryu matched zeros through seven innings, both making brilliantly their case for the hardware. Seth Lugo struck out the side in the top of the eighth and earned his sixth win of the season. Justin Wilson retired the Dodgers in order in the ninth to secure the...

Seth Lugo turning in four-plus out saves is huge asset to Mets

When Brodie Van Wagenen made the splashiest trade of the offseason and set his eyes on Edwin Diaz, the Mets general manager forgot to take inventory of an already dominant right-handed relief pitcher sitting quietly in the bullpen. Seth Lugo has developed into the team’s primary closer as the Amazin’s...

Scouts weigh in on strong stretch for Mets' Seth Lugo: 'One of the best relievers in the game'

Jacob deGrom pushed himself a little closer to a second straight Cy Young Award with seven brilliant innings on Monday night, and yet there's a case to be made that he was the Mets' second-best pitcher in the 3-1 win against the Diamondbacks.

Player Meter: Pitchers, September 2-8

Photo by Rich Schultz/ A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Might as well be direct about it: the Mets did not pitch well this week, to put it mildly. While the Mets were certainly scoring a fair number of runs during their stretch that propelled them back into the Wild Card conversation after many thought them long dead, it was their pitching—particularly the starting pitching—that carried them. They were going deep into games, exposing a weak bullpen a lot less often, and the Mets were able to deploy Seth Lugo and Justin Wilson successfully in the...

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets One day after suffering an absolutely devastating loss, the Mets showed some surprising resilience and bounced back nicely to take the series from Washington. Home runs from Juan Lagares, Robinson Cano, and Pete Alonso gave the team a lead even this bullpen would not relinquish. Jeurys Familia stumbled but Luis Avilan, Seth Lugo, and Justin Wilson easily shut to door for the team to walk away with a series win. Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long, Daily...

Mets bounce back from rough defeat to claim game and series from Nationals

Mets bounce back from rough defeat to claim game and series from Nationals

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports Three home runs from the offense and solid work from Seth Lugo and Justin Wilson in the bullpen lead to 8-4 victory. An afternoon getaway game meant that the Mets had to bounce back quickly from a devastating ninth-inning collapse the previous night. Chances did not look good in the early going, as Zack Wheeler struggled early. The Nationals jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the second inning, as with two outs and none on, Wheeler surrendered consecutive singles to Gerardo Parra, pitcher Anibal Sanchez and Trea Turner. The Nets loaded the bases, but Anthony...
