Marlins shut-out lifeless Mets for second straight game

Marlins shut-out lifeless Mets for second straight game
  Sandy Alcantara wasn’t perfect on Sunday, but he was pretty close. The Marlins starter threw his first career complete game in Miami’s 3-0 win over the Mets, completing a three-game sweep at Marlins Park.

Corbin K’s 11 Mets in 5-1 Nationals win
When the Nationals have needed a “stopper” this season, someone to almost single-handedly take the game into his own hands and halt a losing skid, they have routinely been able to lean on Patrick Corbin. Take last Thursday for example, when he was responsible for stopping the Nats’ four-game losing streak with seven scoreless innings to beat the Dodgers. Corbin... more

Ramos grand slam, Syndergaard lift Mets over Washington
  Before Tuesday’s series opener against the Nationals, manager Mickey Callaway, in defending catcher Wilson Ramos, mentioned that the sub-.500 Mets were six games above that mark on nights Ramos started.

Mets win as deGrom continues his resurgence
  For Jacob deGrom, a return to normalcy has meant a return to brilliance.

Alonso: Paddack’s smack talk ‘doesn’t sit well’ after Mets 4-0 loss
Minutes after the Mets lost a 4-0 game to the Padres on Monday, Pete Alonso sat at his locker, as he often does, writing longform notes on the pitchers he faced in the game. On this day, his book included an entry on Chris Paddack, the brash, flame-throwing right-hander who blanked the Mets over 7 2/3 innings. Before the game,... more

Syndergaard first to hit HR, toss 1-0 shutout since 1983
It was subtle, perhaps even imperceptible to the untrained eye. But as Todd Frazier watched the early moments of Thursday’s game against the Reds at Citi Field, he noticed a different glint in Noah Syndergaard’s eye. Stepping into the batter’s box, several Reds gave Syndergaard nods of respect. In turn, Syndergaard roundly ignored each of them, glowering from his perch... more
