Game recap July 20: A second half team

Noah Syndergaard held the potent Yankees offense to only one run, Yoenis Cespedes had two hits including a home run and Michael Conforto drove in three runs during Friday night’s series opener with the Yankees.

Game recap July 13: That’s more like it

While trade rumors continue to swirl around the Mets’ pitching staff, Noah Syndergaard’s return from a lengthy DL stint gave the club a glimpse of why they should potentially not deal from their only strength. Syndergaard wasn’t quite dominant, but he was plenty good enough Friday night, limiting the Nationals to only one run across […]

It’s extra-base hit galore, and every home run goes 450 feet. It’s like some kid messed with the settings on a video game. It’s a mythical […]

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves

Game recap May 30: Split series

Boy, it feels good to bounce back. Coming off a crushing walkoff loss in the game prior, the Mets rebounded to defeat Atlanta by a score of 4-1. Wednesday’s win allowed the Mets to split the series with the Braves and prevented them from digging their hole any deeper. They also staved off another opportunity […]
