Matz dazzles in debut as Mets thump Braves & sweep doubleheader

As the Mets begin to reconstruct their injury-depleted starting rotation, they can only hope Steven Matz continues to be as efficient as he was Saturday night while helping secure a doubleheader sweep with an 8-1 win over the Braves at SunTrust Park. “It was great, especially sweeping the doubleheader,” Mets right fielder Jay Bruce said. “It’s good to have Matz... more

Pair of solo homers not enough for Mets vs. Atlanta on Friday night

Long after Julio Teheran and Matt Harvey provided some encouraging signs during their pitching matchup Friday night at SunTrust Park, the Braves saw a couple of their youngest players construct a quick-strike ninth inning that resulted in a 3-2 walk-off win over the Mets. Dansby Swanson capped a two-hit performance by turning a sharp grounder to center field into a... more

Mets hit five homers, but lose to Rangers

The Rangers rode a big offensive night from their outfielders and snapped a four-game losing streak with a 10-8 victory over the Mets at Globe Life Park on Tuesday night. The Rangers were especially rough on Mets starter Jacob deGrom, who went four innings and tied a career high by allowing eight runs. Rangers left fielder Delino DeShields, center fielder... more

Mets’ momentum halted as bats baffled by Pirates

Even if their poor start to the season still clouds the picture, the Pirates have quietly played solid baseball for the better part of a month. Their 11-1 thumping of the Mets on Sunday ensured the Bucs a three-game series victory at Citi Field, improving them to 12-9 since May 13. No National League Central team has been better over... more

Flores belts homer, but Mets offense struggles in loss

Their superlative start to the season in jeopardy, the Brewers shuffled out of Citi Field late Tuesday night hefting the weight of seven losses in their last nine games. For the better part of a fortnight, they were mortal. Then they engineered the exact turnaround they needed, riding Chase Anderson’s seven shutout innings in Thursday’s series finale to a 2-1... more

Mets miss chances on deGrom’s rough night

A surprise nomination for one of baseball’s best offenses so far this season, the Brewers continued chugging along Wednesday despite the presence of one of the National League’s top pitchers. Eric Thames homered to spark a seven-run attack against Jacob deGrom, leading Milwaukee to a 7-1 win over the Mets at Citi Field. Homering for the first time in 16... more

Bruce bosses Brewers with walk-off single to lift Mets

Asdrubal Cabrera made them wait a few minutes longer. But the Mets, who have lost more than their share of gut-wrenching games this season, eventually picked Cabrera up with a walk-off, 12-inning, 5-4 win over the Brewers. Five innings after Cabrera’s dropped popup at shortstop allowed the Brewers to tie the game, Jay Bruce singled home the winning run. T.J.... more

Mets ride Gsellman’s arm, bat over Brewers

The Mets got another strong performance from a starting pitcher Monday, and not coincidentally, they got another win. Rookie right-hander Robert Gsellman allowed just one earned run in seven innings, and the Mets beat the Brewers, 4-2, at Citi Field for their third win in the last four games. Gsellman also drove in two of the Mets runs with a... more

Mets can’t hold lead, leave bases loaded in 9th

Given new life Wednesday, the Padres wasted little time turning what would have been their seventh loss in eight games into a much-needed win. An inning after the Padres completed a comeback from down four runs, Hunter Renfroe smashed a go-ahead homer into the second deck at Citi Field in the eighth that had a projected distance of 440 feet,... more

Conforto, 7-run 1st boost Mets vs. Padres

Matt Harvey’s struggles this season have been both well-documented and well-defined. And while Harvey did little to boost his fading reputation on Tuesday, his teammates boosted him plenty with a seven-run first inning in the Mets’ 9-3 win over the Padres at Citi Field. Michael Conforto homered, singled and drove in three runs in the first inning alone, finishing with... more

Milone struggles as Mets drop finale to Angels

The Mets spent most of this weekend pitching carefully to Mike Trout, limiting him to singles and walks. Trout finally broke through Sunday on a banner day for the Angels’ offense, collecting a homer and a double while reaching base four times in Los Angeles’ 12-5 win over the Mets. C.J. Cron hit a first-inning grand slam off Tommy Milone... more
