Mets Morning News: Rafael Montero progresses in Mets’ defeat, trade deadline inches closer

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

Yes, the Mets again lost on a Sunday, but they didn’t get blown out and Rafael Montero looked better, so that’s progress. The good news is Michael Conforto continued to hit, but with a long road trip coming up, did the Citi Field faithful see the last of some dutiful Mets?

MEMPHIS 7, LAS VEGAS 5 (Box)

The Redbirds jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead, plating four runs off of Mitch Atkins in the first on a pair of two run homers by Alex Mejia and Pat Wisdom. Atkins helped his own cause by singling in Josh Rodriguez in the second to put the 51s on the board, but he allowed yet another home run, this time a...

WATCH: Tim Tebow blasts home run No. 4 since being promoted

Tim Tebow is at it again, folks. The former NFL star was promoted to A-Advanced St. Lucie less than a month ago and has already hit his fourth home run.On Sunday, Tebow bested his 64-game total at low-A Columbus in just his 25th game since the promotion. This solo shot was a no-doubt homer from the moment it left Tebow’s bat.But he wasn’t done, either. Not long afterwards, Tebow hit a double, and it’s clear at this point he’s really starting to catch on to this baseball thing....

Final Score: Athletics 3, Mets 2— Sunday, No Fun-day

The Sunday struggles continue as A’s top Mets in finale

Despite what was arguably one of the better starts of Rafael Montero’s season, the Athletics defeated the Mets 3-2. Montero pitched seven innings, striking out four and walking one, while allowing home runs to Marcus Semien, Khris Davis, and Matt Chapman. Montero also collected his first major league hit - a single in the fifth inning.

Michael Conforto continued his impressive play, going 2-for-4, and hitting his 19th home run of...

Ricky Knapp was pretty solid over his seven innings, allowing just two runs on four hits, but those two runs would be all the Redbirds would need, as the Amed-less 51s scratched out only a single run, a Jayce Boyd solo homer in the seventh.

Meet the Mets

Always nice to hear a double “Outta here!” from Gary Cohen. It was courtesy of Wilmer Flores, who helped complete the comeback for the Mets after they dug themselves into a 5-0 hole. They’ll get a chance to sweep when Rafael Montero takes the hill against the Athletics this afternoon.

Mets vs Athletics Recap: Outta here! Outta here!

There’s nothing sweeter than a walk off win

The Mets continue their hot second half with a walk-off win against the Athletics tonight at Citi Field. The hero of the night was Wilmer Flores, who sent a Simon Castro pitch over the left field fence to secure a series win for his team.

Zack Wheeler struggled in his five innings, giving up two home runs (to Matt Joyce in the first and Matt Chapman in the third) and walking four over 100 pitches. In the first inning, following Joyce’s home...

Final Score: Mets 6, Athletics 5: Don’t call it a comeback

Wilmer walks off a wild comeback win.

CitiField was near capacity and brimming with energy on Saturday night. Yeah, a bobble-head may have had something to do with it, but nevertheless the fans got to see something just as special - a comeback, walk off win.

Zack Wheeler had the start tonight and found himself in trouble early, allowing a lead-off home run to Matt Joyce. Marcus Semien walked his way on base and stole second, allowing Khris Davis to plate him with a single. Bruce Maxwell...

The 51s opened their weekend series in Memphis with a sound loss against the Cardinals-affiliated RedBirds. Starter Wilfredo Boscan allowed four runs, two earned, over five innings while striking out three batters. Poor defensive play marred the 51s’ night, as they committed four errors, most notably a...

Mets Morning News: Conforto earns all A’s at Citi Field

Your Saturday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

The Oakland A’s rolled into town to take on the Mets at Citi Field. In a wild, back-and-forth game Michael Conforto proved to be the difference-maker, playing like the All-Star he is. Conforto collected two home runs and four RBIs as the Mets came away with a 7-5 victory to open their series with the Athletics.

Mets vs Athletics Recap: Matz more like it

I don’t think Cespedes wants back on the A’s just yet.

The Mets continue to stymie the front office’s attempts to become sellers by winning games, beating the Athletics 7-5 at Citi Field this evening. Michael Conforto hit two home runs - one a tape-measure job that hit Shea Bridge - and Steven Matz looked more like himself than he did when getting shelled last week.

Matz still looked shaky to begin the game, giving up three straight hits and an early run. He eventually settled down,...

Final Score: Mets 7, Athletics 5-Can I get an encore?

Do you want more?

The Mets defeated the A’s 7-5 in a mistake-filled, seesaw game. Steven Matz again looked not at his best in the first when he allowed three straight hits to start the game. Oakland took an early 1-0 lead but the lefty settled in nicely until the fifth. Matz picked off Rajai Davis but Lucas Duda was unable to complete the throw to second base for the out. The A’s would take advantage of their good fortune and score two runs that inning.

It was 3-2 at that point since...

The Oakland Athletics are in Queens taking on the New York Mets.

Tim Tebow explains his vast improvement as a baseball player

In a way, Tim Tebow’s evolution as a baseball player is hard to explain. Who gets better as the competition improves? But to hear Tebow explain it, it makes sense.“I think I’m more comfortable seeing more pitches,” Tebow said, via Jon Santucci, TCPalm. “Playing baseball for longer, I think that helps. Also (hitting coach) Luis (Natera) and (manager) Chad (Kreuter), getting to work with them every day and just what we’re doing out there — taking pitches, seeing, tracking. I feel...

The Athletics and Mets could score more prospects than runs this weekend

Both teams have front offices hard at work as the trade deadline approaches.

Ever since Moneyball came out, the Athletics have been thought of as a progressive franchise that is embraced by some fans and mocked by others. When baseball operations head Billy Beane makes controversial moves like trading Josh Donaldson in his prime, some see the A’s staying ahead of the curve while others see Beane trying to be too smart for his own good.

One thing critics haven’t been able to say about...
