Mets Morning News for September 18, 2019

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Powered by the long ball and a dominant performance by Marcus Stroman, the Mets topped the Rockies 6-1. Stroman pitched seven scoreless innings and the Mets had a home run barrage in the sixth inning. One of those three home runs belonged to Pete Alonso, who hit his major league leading 48th homer of the year. Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long.

Marcus Stroman throws seven scoreless innings against Rockies in best start as a Met

DENVER — Six of Marcus Stroman’s 21 outs came via ground ball in his ninth start for the Mets on Tuesday night at Coors Field. Seven other outs were strikeouts, one was caught stealing and the rest were fly outs. Regardless of how the outs arrived for the trade-deadline acquisition, the mixture...

Mets vs. Rockies recap: Rocky Mountain Blues

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ The Mets’ road trip got off to a disappointing start. No lead is ever safe at Coors Field, especially not a slim three-run lead, and Steven Matz sure proved that and quickly. A nightmarish fourth inning ended the lead, Matz’s night, and perhaps the Mets’ playoff hopes in one fell swoop. Matz seemed to be working quickly and looked to be going well through the first three innings, but the bottom of the lineup suddenly became too much for him to handle. A Garrett Hampson single and Drew Butera walk were bad enough, but the hapless-at-the-plate Antonio...

Meet the Mets Needing to win just about every game the rest of the way, the Mets went out and lost to the last-place Colorado Rockies on Monday night. Brandon Nimmo led off with a home run, and Jeff McNeil added a two-run shot later on as the Mets built a three-run lead. Things completely unraveled in the fourth, as Steven Matz was blasted for six runs that sunk the Mets for good. In the inning, Rockies’ starter Antonio Senzatela contributed a two-run single to tie the game and end...

Steven Matz atrocity puts Mets in very dire shape

DENVER — The Fat Lady is clearing her throat, preparing to sing a rendition of “Meet the Mets.” They are not mathematically eliminated, but the Mets have clearly entered a realm in which a miracle will be necessary to secure the National League’s second wild-card berth. On a night the two teams directly ahead of...

Final Score: Rockies 9, Mets 4-Coors bite

Final Score: Rockies 9, Mets 4-Coors bite

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Steven Matz got bitten by a bad inning and the Mets dropped an ugly one in Colorado. Steven Matz looked to be cruising with a three-run lead, but a nightmare of an inning led to a complete meltdown and a 9-4 Coors Field loss. Home runs by Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil gave the Mets an early lead, but Matz suddenly couldn’t throw a strike in the fourth which led to a six-run inning by the Rockies. The most egregious hit was a two-run single by pitcher Antonio Senzatela who had been mired in an 0-for-44 slump. Trevor Story followed with a three-run bomb and...

Player Meter: Pitchers, September 9-15

Photo by Rich Schultz/ A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Other than Noah Syndergaard’s poor start on Friday night, the Mets’ starting rotation had a phenomenal week. Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom twirled two gems each, Marcus Stroman had his best start as a Met, and Steven Matz tossed six shutout innings in his start. In the Mets’ only other loss of the week on Sunday, it was the usually reliable members of the bullpen that let them down, albeit against a very formidable Dodgers lineup. Jacob deGrom and Zack Wheeler each made two...

Final Score: Dodgers 9, Mets 2—Synderdud and bullpain

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Having been dogged by controversy for the past few days, Syndergaard responded with a mediocre start, and the bullpen was not any better as the Mets lose the series opener. The Mets’ series against the Dodgers got off to a disappointing start, as Noah Syndergaard and the bullpen were knocked around by the Los Angeles offense en route to a 9-2 loss. The Amazins did get on the board first tonight, as J.D Davis hit his 19th homer of the year in the first inning. Kershaw quickly settled down after that, however, and the Mets were unable to do much damage...
