Final Score: Mets 11, Giants 4 - Dom-iminant bounce back

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Dom Smith had a big day in a decisive win. The Mets bounced back in a big way, drumming the Giants in a decisive 11-4 victory. Dom Smith made up for his mistake on Friday with a home run and a pair of RBI singles, while Pete Alonso came off the bench to launch a three-run home run that iced the game. Jeff McNeil and Todd Frazier also went deep in the win. Walter Lockett was more than good enough to make the ample run support stand up, tossing five-innings of one run ball thanks in part to heavier use of his curveball. Justin Wilson tallied a scoreless...

Mets recall Walker Lockett, option Jacob Rhame

Mets recall Walker Lockett, option Jacob Rhame

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Lockett fills in for the injured Zack Wheeler. Ahead of their game in San Francisco this afternoon, the Mets have recalled right-handed pitcher Walker Lockett, who gets the start against the Giants in Zack Wheeler’s place, and optioned right-handed relief pitcher Jacob Rhame to Triple-A Syracuse. Lockett, who was acquired over the winter in exchange for Kevin Plawecki, has made two starts for the Mets at the major league level so far this year, and they haven’t gone well. In 7.2 innings, he’s given up ten runs, all of which have been earned, with six...

Mets lose second straight in extras on a Dominic Smith error in the tenth

Mets lose second straight in extras on a Dominic Smith error in the tenth

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Every time one thinks the Mets can’t possibly reach new heights of Metsing, they deliver another Metsian performance for the ages. The Mets lost to the Giants 1-0 in walk-off fashion in the tenth inning—their second straight walk-off loss. Although this game did not last as long as Thursday’s game, it was perhaps even more excruciating, as the winning run crossed the plate on an error by Dominic Smith on a routine fly ball to left field. As always, the Mets seem to be in peak LOLMets form when Jacob deGrom is on the mound. deGrom delivered seven...

After Jacob deGrom pitched brilliantly and got zero run support, the Mets found themselves in extra innings again. Just when it looked like they were about to escape the 10th inning and play on, Dominic Smith dropped an easy fly ball with two outs, allowing a base runner to score and end the game.

Final Score: Giants 1, Mets 0—Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum, I Smell the Outfield Skills of a First Baseman

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports The Mets lost in extra innings for the second straight day. Today it was even worse. It was a quintessential 2018 Jacob deGrom start in every sense of the phrase. deGrom was brilliant over seven scoreless innings, striking out ten Giants. But the Mets couldn’t get him any run support, managing just three hits off Tyler Beede, who tossed eight scoreless innings for the Giants. After that, it was a battle of two overworked bullpens, as the game went to extra innings for the second straight night. Luis Avilan and Will Smith each pitched a scoreless inning in...

As Dominic Smith converged with Amed Rosario on Pablo Sandoval’s pop-up in the 10th inning Friday night, the Mets left fielder’s thoughts turned to his collision last season with the shortstop that had cost their team a game, against the Giants. This time there would...
