Mets embark on critical 11-game road trip, beginning with series against Braves

The Mets will try to slow down Atlanta, who have taken over first place in the National League East.

The New York Mets (34-37) begin a grueling 11-game road trip with three games at SunTrust Park against the first-place Atlanta Braves (42-30). It’s fair to say that the next eleven days will go a long way towards determining how the rest of the Mets’ 2019 season will play out. This will be the club’s second trip to Atlanta in 2019, after the two teams split four games in April.

Meet the Mets

If it wasn’t set in stone already, Paul DeJong secured himself a spot in the hall of Met killers as his solo home run in the eighth inning was the difference in the Mets’ 4-3 loss to St. Louis.

The Mets get the hits, but the Cardinals get the runs and the series victory

The Cardinals mustered just four hits, but two of them were long home runs, and the Mets were unable to respond

The Mets came into Sunday afternoon hoping that Jason Vargas would be able to continue his recent string of success against Dakota Hudson and the Cardinals to eke out a split in this four-game series.

The game got off to a less than auspicious start. After retiring the first batter, Vargas surrendered a walk to Paul DeJong, which was immediately followed by a long two-run blast...

Final Score: Cardinals 4, Mets 3—DeJong Destroys DeMets

The Mets killer hit a decisive home run in the 8th inning to secure a series win for the Cardinals

After barely managing to hold onto the game last night, the Mets were not able to salvage a series split today. In spite of outhitting the Cardinals ten to three, the Amazins were unable to capitalize on several opportunities, and a timely homer off the bat of Paul DeJong gave St. Louis a 4-3 victory.

One of the Cardinals three hits came in the first inning, and it immediately gave the...

Jason Vargas leaves Mets’ Sunday afternoon game early

Vargas fouled a ball off his foot and left the game.

On the same day that they placed Noah Syndergaard on the injured list with a hamstring injury, the Mets lost Jason Vargas early in their series finale today when he fouled a ball off his foot. Whether or not he suffered a significant injury is unknown at this time.

Vargas threw four innings and gave up three runs, two of which were earned, before he left the game in the bottom of the fourth. If he were to miss any time, the Mets would go...

Mets' Zack Wheeler reportedly drawing trade interest from several teams

To state the obvious, this season hasn’t gone according to plan for the Mets. They’re the owners of a 34-36 record, staring at a 6.5-game deficit in their division and a five-game mark for the National League’s second wild card. First-time general manager Brodie Van Wagenen boldly suggested over the winter the Mets would take on all comers in 2019, but his roster has instead spun its wheels for a couple of months. Barring a turnaround leading up to the July 31 trade deadline, the Mets...

Mets place Noah Syndergaard on IL, activate Robinson Cano

The Mets have placed right-hander Noah Syndergaard on the 10-day injured list, Tim Britton of The Athletic was among those to report. They activated second baseman Robinson Cano from the IL to take Syndergaard’s 25-man roster spot. Syndergaard exited his start Saturday with a hamstring strain, though it’s not yet clear how severe it is. Regardless, this will go down as yet another injury-shortened season for Syndergaard, who hasn’t been at his usual form when he has taken the mound...

Mets activate Robinson Canó from injured list

The team hasn’t announced the corresponding move just yet.

The Mets have activated Robinson Canó from the injured list, as the second baseman is in the team’s lineup for this afternoon’s series finale against the Cardinals. He’ll play at his natural position and bat fifth, and the team has placed Noah Syndergaard on the injured list to make room for him on the roster.

The rest of the Mets’ lineup today sure is interesting. Regulars Todd Frazier, Amed Rosario, Wilson Ramos, and...

Mets place Noah Syndergaard on injured list with hamstring injury

The 26-year-old left Saturday night’s game because of the hamstring issue.

In what should be considered record-setting speed by the Mets’ standards, the team has placed right-handed pitcher Noah Syndergaard on the injured list this morning after he left last night’s game with a hamstring injury. He’s getting an MRI this morning. The move also makes room for Robinson Canó, who is coming off the injured list himself today, on the Mets’ active roster.

Syndergaard hasn’t been his...

Meet the Mets

The Mets beat the Cardinals 8-7 in a rollercoaster night at Citi Field. The Mets jumped out to an early lead thanks to a towering shot from Pete Alonso, his 23rd home run of the year. It was a big night for J.D. Davis, as he collected four hits for the first time in his career, including a home run. After Noah Syndergaard was forced to leave the game early due to a hamstring strain, the bullpen faltered...

Offense breaks out for eight runs, bullpen staggers to the finish but holds on

The Mets bullpen tried their hardest to blow a five run lead, but a crazy final play saved the game.

Coming off of one of the most deflating days of the season where the team lost not one, but two games in heartbreaking fashion after blowing late leads, the Mets looked to show some character and bounce back by getting one of those wins back against the Cardinals last night.

It started out about as well as anyone could have hoped. Noah Syndergaard allowed a home run to Dexter Fowler in the...

SYRACUSE 5, GWINNETT 0 (BOX)

Chris Mazza had a huge day in a 5-0 win against Gwinnett. Mazza tossed eight scoreless innings, striking out eight and allowing only a pair of hits and a walk, and he added a double and a run to his stat line just for fun. On offense, the Mets rode a four run fourth, with RBIs on a Rene Rivera single and two-run...

Noah Syndergaard has a strained hamstring

The big righthander left in the seventh inning of his Saturday start against the Cardinals.

Noah Syndergaard departed in the seventh inning on Saturday with a right hamstring strain. Syndergaard got through six innings having allowed two runs, but gave up a leadoff single in the seventh and fell off the mound awkwardly while facing his next batter. The inconsistent Met ace grabbed the back of his leg and immediately gestured to the dugout, and had a significant limp coming off the...

Noah Syndergaard leaves game due to hamstring strain

Mets righty Noah Syndergaard left tonight’s start due to a right hamstring strain, the team announced. The injury took place during the seventh inning, as Syndergaard came up limping after a play that saw the Cardinals’ Yairo Munoz steal second base. The right-hander was immediately removed from the game after a visit from the trainer. An IL stint seems likely, since the description of the injury as a strain (as noted by Newsday’s Tim Healey) indicates a certain amount of severity....

Final Score: Mets 8, Cardinals 7—This time, you can exhale

The bullpen almost blew a lead again, but this time they held on for the win.

One day after the bullpen blew not one, but two games, the Mets held on this time by the skin of their teeth to win Saturday night’s game by a score of 8-7, though it wasn’t easy.

The offense was able to jump out early against Cardinals starter Michael Wacha, hanging up a 5-spot in the first inning, with three of those runs coming on a Pete Alonso moonshot home run. They later would push across three more...
