Mets fall to Braves in a blowout to open series

Mets fall to Braves in a blowout to open series

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The game featured a rain delay and a potentially significant injury. The Mets gave up thirteen runs to the Braves and unsurprisingly lost as a result. Carlos Carrasco gave up three runs in two innings of work, and after the game was interrupted by a rain delay, the Mets sent him back out there only to see him leave the game early with what the team described as left side tightness. With Carrasco out early, the Mets turned to their lesser relievers and got lesser results. Joely Rodríguez, Adonis Medina, and Mychal Givens combined to surrender ten...

Mets to place Luis Guillorme on injured list, call up Deven Marrero

Mets to place Luis Guillorme on injured list, call up Deven Marrero

This is Deven Marrero. | Photo by Mark Brown/ The Mets’ roster has taken an injury hit. The Mets are set to place Luis Guillorme on the injured list, as the versatile infielder has a groin injury that will sideline him for several weeks, and hey’re calling up infielder Deven Marrero to take his place on the roster, per Anthony DiComo. The team has opted not to call up either Brett Baty or Mark Vientos, both of whom are playing for Triple-A Syracuse. Marrero has had stints in the big leagues dating back to 2015, when he made his major league debut with the Red Sox....

Player Meter: Pitchers, August 8-14

Photo by Mike Stobe/ A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. In a year where the Mets’ pitching staff has been excellent, this may be the best week-long stretch they have put together this season. The Mets’ only loss this week was a 2-1 extra-inning loss in which the game-winning run that crossed the plate was the free runner in extra innings. The Mets’ bullpen did not give up an earned run this week. Let me repeat that. The Mets’ bullpen did not give up a single earned run this week. And no starting pitcher surrendered more than two...

Player Meter: Position players, August 8-14

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week. The Mets swept the lowly Reds this week and then took two out of three from the Phillies over the weekend for a solid 5-1 record for the week. The offense took care of business in the Reds series, scoring at least five runs in each game and unloading for double-digit runs in the series finale. The offense was held in check over the first two games of the Phillies series, which both turned out to be pitcher’s duels, before breaking out to score six runs against Zack...

Mets head to Atlanta for another showdown with rival Braves

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Mets will look to put some more distance between themselves and second-place Atlanta. The Mets (75-40) will look to continue asserting their division dominance as they head to Truist Park for four games with the Braves (70-46). The Mets took four of five from the Braves at Citi Field earlier this month, and two of three from them at Truist Park in July. Overall, they’ve won eight of twelve in the season series. The Mets are currently 5.5 games clear of the Braves in the NL East standings. The Mets, who have not yet lost a series to an NL East...

Mets 6, Phillies 0—“Juggernaut”

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The Mets shut the Phillies out for the second straight game to win the series. The Mets finished off their series with the Phillies in dominating fashion, shutting out Philadelphia 6-0. It’s their second straight shutout win, and they ultimately didn’t allow an earned run after the first inning of Friday’s series opener. Chris Bassitt didn’t have his best stuff, but consistently danced around trouble. The bullpen mostly kept things quiet, though Joely Rodriguez did load the bases in the ninth before Adam Ottavino came in to close things...

Mets 1, Phillies 0—deGrom and the bullpen dominate

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Jacob deGrom was spectacular, and the Mets’ bullpen was, too. The Mets evened their series with the Phillies by shutting them out, as Jacob deGrom and the three Mets relievers who followed him were outstanding and the team managed to notch one run Aaron Nola. deGrom went six innings, struck out ten, didn’t walk anyone, and gave up just two hits in his third start since he was activated from the injured list following a year-long absence. To say that he hasn’t missed a beat would simply be an understatement. Seth Lugo, Trevor May, and Edwin...
