MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Mets

Game recap June 22: Bellinger blast undoes Wheeler’s night

For six of his seven innings Friday night, Mets starter Zack Wheeler was in complete control. The sixth inning, however, was a different story thanks to one big swing from LA first baseman Cody Bellinger. Wheeler easily breezed through the first two innings of this game, retiring the first six Dodgers hitters with four punch-outs. […]

MLB: New York Mets at Colorado Rockies

Game recap June 18: Unsurprisingly Nimmo, surprisingly rest of team back the dominant deGrom

Ah, Coors Field. The first play of Monday night’s game indicative of what was to come when Brandon Nimmo, who grew up two hours from Coors, continued his scorching hot play as he opened up the Rockies series with an inside-the-park home run. The hitting To no surprise, the hustling Nimmo was home to home in […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap June 12: Mickey Callaway goes home

Primer Another trip to Atlanta, what could possibly go wrong? Zack Wheeler and the anemic Met offense squared off against Mike Foltynewicz and the best offense in the National League to start a two-game set. Game Recap Both starters worked around a first inning baserunner to settle into an early groove. Foltynewicz hit Michael Conforto […]

MLB: New York Yankees at New York Mets

Game recap June 8: Wasted

I’d say the Mets’ offensive ineptitude is getting ridiculous, but that narrative is beyond redundant. On Friday night, New York dropped their series opener with the Yankees 4-1, making them losers of all seven games on their current home stand. In those seven contests, the Mets have scored eight runs. EIGHT. They’ve scored three times […]

MLB: Game One-New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap May 28 (Game 1): Jacob deGrom deserves better

I love doubleheaders. I wish Major League Baseball would utilize them more regularly instead of just contingency plans for weather issues. Thanks to a rainout on April 22, the Mets were scheduled to play two games against the National League East-leading Atlanta Braves. Currently four games out of the division lead, Monday offered a unique […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 26: Glad that’s over with

THE GOOD The Mets had 12 hits and scored six runs, which felt like an explosion considering the team’s recent offensive performance. The six runs were the most they’ve scored in a game since last Tuesday, when the Amazins’ put up a 12 spot against the Blue Jays. Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto both hit […]

MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers

Game recap May 25: Shrimp

The Mets came back from the dead to have a legitimate chance to win on Friday night, but reliever A.J. Ramos’ inability to throw strikes ultimately led to them dropping an extra inning contest to the Brewers 4-3. Fresh off their ho-hum win Thursday in the series opener with Milwaukee, the Amazins’ felt good about their chances […]

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets

Game recap May 21: Ace Jason Vargas

There are few things that bring me more dread than the thought of recapping a game that features Jason Vargas starting for the Mets. The Amazins’ prized free agent acquisition has been awful in 2018; in three starts, he’s surrendered multiple runs in the first inning of each game. It’s no secret that the Mets, […]

Game recap April 15: A rout

Well that was a sight for sore eyes. After struggling to score only 17 collective runs in their past eight games, the Mets offense exploded for 12 runs on 16 hits in Tuesday night’s series-opening win over Toronto, an even more impressive feat when you consider both Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto did not play.
