Rosario legs out a walk-off infield single after Alonso’s home run ties it in the eighth

Rosario legs out a walk-off infield single after Alonso’s home run ties it in the eighth

The Mets beat up on Washington’s bullpen in the win. For the first six innings of the game, the New York Mets’ offense appeared to have fallen back into familiar patterns. The club was held to just one run and couldn’t seem to figure things out against Erick Fedde or Wander Suero. Once the seventh inning began, however, it was a brand new ballgame for the Blue and Orange, as they scored five runs in the final three frames, culminating in an Amed Rosario walk-off infield single to finish off the victory. The Mets sent Zack Wheeler to the mound, who has not been able to solve the...

Final Score: Mets 6, Nationals 5—Run-off

Rosario’s mad dash to first results in a Mets’ walk-off win. In a back-and-forth affair that featured both bullpens blowing leads, the New York Mets came out on top by a 6-5 score. Amed Rosario played hero, as he legged out an infield single to beat the throw from Trea Turner and help the Mets earn their second straight win against the Washington Nationals. Zack Wheeler was cruising through six innings, but was burned by a Brian Dozier two-run home run in the seventh. New York jumped back in front in the bottom half of the inning on a J.D. Davis pinch-hit three-run home run, only to see...

Player Meter: Pitchers, May 13-19

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Especially given all the injuries and cycling of arms that the Mets have had to endure lately, the bullpen has performed remarkably well of late. In fact, Mets relievers pitched to a 1.59 ERA this week, which is the best mark in the National League. Unfortunately, this is in stark contrast to the rotation, which posted a 6.47 ERA this week, which is the worst mark in the National League. Jacob deGrom has had a few bad starts this year, but his most recent outing was probably his worst. Zack Wheeler also had a poor...

Wheeler disappoints as Mets’ rally falls just short

Wheeler disappoints as Mets’ rally falls just short

The Mets lost Michael Conforto and, eventually, the game. In what seems to be a yearly occurrence for the Mets, they lost a tough game against the Nationals and lost a couple players to injuries along the way. The Mets 7-6 loss against Washington this afternoon was especially disheartening in more ways than one. The first stop of the highway of despair came quickly in the Nationals half of the first inning as Zack Wheeler had a rough time recording outs. After the Mets recorded three straight outs on offense, Washington took the opposite approach as their first three batters all reached...

Mets to select contract of Carlos Gomez

Mets to select contract of Carlos Gomez

The 33-year-old has been hitting well in Triple-A. The Mets are set to select the contract of outfielder Carlos Gomez, according to Mike Puma of the Post, who says Gomez was informed last night that he would be joining the Mets in Miami. That brings things full circle for the 33-year-old outfielder, who came up through the Mets’ system, made his major league debut with the team in 2007, and was the subject of the trade that never was—the one that would have sent Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores to the Brewers in 2015 in exchange for him. Having signed a minor league deal with the Mets...

Two bad innings sink Mets’ Zack Wheeler

WASHINGTON — The Mets survived Zack Wheeler’s dreaded one big meltdown Thursday. Then he gave up one big hit. After Wheeler got tagged for four runs in the first inning, the Mets recovered to tie the game through three innings. But before Wheeler was done, Gerardo Parra took him deep for a two-run shot in...

WASHINGTON — That S.O.S. originating from the bottom of the Potomac River around 4:20 p.m. Thursday was the Mets, begging for a rescue. Two bodies down, an ugly Zack Wheeler start and series loss to the Nationals translated into maybe the worst day of this season for the Mets. A weekend trip to Miami might...

Final Score: Nationals 7, Mets 6 — Too little, too late

A rough first inning and a pair of injuries spell doom for the Mets in Washington. When it comes to the Mets 7-6 loss against Washington, things started out just about as badly as it could. Beyond the fact that Zack Wheeler allowed six runs on 11 hits, four of them coming in the first inning, the Mets saw Jeff McNeil and Michael Conforto leave the game due to abdominal tightness and a collision, respectively. Before his untimely departure, Michael Conforto did manage to tie the game at four in the top of the third inning with his ninth home run of the season. Another spot of bright news...
