The Mets were unable to hold a lead - twice - in a depressing loss to the Brewers

This team keeps finding new ways to lose The Mets blew two leads today and dropped their third straight game to the Brewers, 8-7. Despite the offense scoring seven runs, the Mets’ bullpen again could not close out the game. Each of the last three games represented a different kind of frustrating loss for the team. The game started in a rocky fashion for Zack Wheeler, with Lorenzo Cain leading off with a base hit. The next batter, Christian Yellich, hit a long fly ball to right field that Jay Bruce missed, and bounced in and out of the glove of a diving Michael Conforto....

Final Score: Brewers 8, Mets 7 — Drown me in beer

Wasted opportunities did the Mets in this afternoon. The Mets blew two leads, used more of their bullpen than they would have liked, and may have lost Wilmer Flores to injury in today’s 8-7 loss to the Brewers. In what was a very back and forth game, the Mets’ bullpen did them in yet again. Zack Wheeler started for the Mets and, despite a rocky start, went six innings, gave up six hits, struck out six, walked two, and gave up four runs. Wheeler escaped major trouble in the first inning, but was done in by a Jesus Aguilar home run in the third, which tied the game at four. The Mets...

Throwing away wins

Zack Wheeler deserved better in this one. Had the Mets prioritized defense, even for one night, you might not get the 5-1 loss the team suffered last night. With Jose Bautista signed and inserted into the lineup, the Mets sat Jay Bruce because the Marlins were starting a lefty. And they also sat Luis Guillorme, which left Jose Reyes to play third. That wound up being the worst decision possible. Even if Guillorme went 0-for-4 at the plate, there’s no way he would have made the same gaffes Reyes did in the field, which had a significant impact on the game. The initial Reyes...

Zack Wheeler finds his missing pitch in hard-luck loss

Zack Wheeler and the Mets lost on Tuesday, but he may have discovered his slider. If that’s the case — and Wheeler is finally able to find consistent success — it’s a trade he and the Mets will probably take. The right-hander gave up three runs in six innings in a 5-1 loss to the...

Final Score: Marlins 5, Mets 1-Defenseless

Jose Reyes’s defense made all the difference in this one. Zack Wheeler deserved better in the Mets’ 5-1 loss to the Marlins. He looked very good on the mound except in the second inning when all of the Marlins’ runs scored. The first run was on Wheeler who gave up three consecutive hits to start the inning, and the first run came home. The next two runs however were on Jose Reyes. Caleb Smith laid down an imperfect bunt and Reyes had no clue what to do with it. He eventually went to first, but too late and the throw was low. With two-out and the bases loaded, J.T. Realmuto made them...
