Mets drop third extra-inning game of series in San Francisco

Mets drop third extra-inning game of series in San Francisco

Photo by Jason O. Watson/ Oh offense, wherefore art though? Another day in San Francisco, another painful loss; the Mets fell 3-2 in twelve innings. The third walkoff loss in the last four days was much like the first two. The offense was anemic, managing only five hits, and the poor effort wasted a solid start from Steven Matz and another good performance from the bullpen. Both teams erased baserunners with double plays in the first - a garden variety 6-4-3 for the Mets, and a stupendous play from Kevin Pillar in the outfield for the Giants. Absorbing that message, the Mets circumvented...

Mets were surprised game-winning homer Sunday went out: 'Thought it was a pop up'

When Mike Yastrzemski lofted a fly ball to left field off the end of his bat in the 12th inning on Sunday against the Mets, no one thought it was going to leave the ballpark. Not Yastrzemski, not Robert Gsellman (who threw the pitch), and not Mickey Callaway.

Player Meter: Position players, July 12-21

Player Meter: Position players, July 12-21

Photo by Jason O. Watson/ A quick review of how the Mets’ position players have fared since the All-Star break. Welcome to the first edition of Player Performance Meters in the second half of 2019. This week’s meters encompass the slightly larger sample size of nine games the Mets have played since the All-Star break. Over that span, the Mets went 5-4, taking two of three from the Marlins, sweeping a two-game series from the Twins, and losing three of four to the Giants, all in walk-off fashion. In many ways, this stretch of play since the break has taken a very Metsian arc, with the...

Trevor Bauer and the New York Mets would be a flammable pair waiting to ignite.

The Cleveland Indians starting pitcher is one of the game’s biggest personalities.

New York Mets offseason trade for Walker Lockett could pay off

The 2019 New York Mets season has focused heavily on the transactions which haven’t worked. The Kevin Plawecki trade for Walker Lockett could actually turn into one of the few wise moves.

Final Score: Giants 3, Mets 2 - Walked off again

Photo by Jason O. Watson/ Once again, the Giants beat the Mets in extra innings. For the third time in the last four games, the Mets were walked off by the Giants in extra innings, falling 3-2 in the twelfth. Steven Matz was solid for six innings and home runs from Michael Conforto and Amed Rosario put the Mets up early, but the offense went totally dormant after that and the bullpen eventually cracked. It’s debatable whether this makes the loss more or less frustrating, but the Mets didn’t even have a ton of opportunities in this one. They managed only five hits and four walks while...
