Game Recap

Simulated Recap: Braves Trounce Mets

This was not the Mets day. It was 6-0 before the Mets scored a run, and the Braves scored in five of eight innings in their 13-2 drubbing of the Mets.

Rick Porcello took the loss after allowing six runs over 3.2 innings. Michael Conforto knocked in the Mets only two runs with a sixth inning two run homer.

Simulated Recap: Matz Beats Braves

Yesterday, the Mets needed a ninth inning rally to beat the Braves. Today, things were not nearly as dramatic as Michael Conforto‘s RBI ground out in the second gave the Mets a 2-1 lead and the lead for good.

That lead grew to 3-1 on a Yoenis Cespedes RBI double. Pete Alonso homered in the first, and Wilson Ramos homered in the eighth in the Mets 4-1 win.

Steven Matz picked up the win after limiting the Braves to one run over six. Edwin Diaz earned the save.

Simulated Recap: McNeil Homers Mets To Comeback Win

The Braves got out to a 6-1 lead against Marcus Stroman and the Mets. However, Stroman would not get saddled with the loss.

In the sixth, the Mets pulled to within 6-4 after homers by Jeff McNeil and Robinson Cano.

In the ninth, Amed Rosario got the game winning rally started with a lead-off double. Later in the inning, McNeil hit his second homer of the game. This one was a go-ahead three run homer giving the Mets a 7-6 lead.

After a Yoenis Cespedes sacrifice fly scoring Pete Alonso, the Mets led 8-6. With Justin Wilson pitching a scoreless eighth, he picked up the win. Edwin Diaz recorded the save.

Simulated Recap: deGrom Tamed By Diamondbacks

When Pete Alonso scored in the fourth, the Mets were tied at 1-1. With Jacob deGrom on the mound, the expectation was the Mets were in for a close game.

Unfortunately, in the seventh, deGrom allowed an RBI single to Ildemaro Vargas. With two outs and two on in the inning, Luis Rojas lifted deGrom for Robert Gsellman.

Gsellman allowed both inherited runners to score. The Diamondbacks would add insurance runs to win this game 6-1.

Simulated Recap: Alonso And Nimmo Homer

In the top of the third inning, the Mets fell behind 1-0. In the bottom half, they’d take the lead for good on a Pete Alonso two run homer:

That third inning run was the only run Michael Wacha would give up in his five innings of work. The Mets bullpen did him one better by following with four scoreless innings.

The Mets 2-1 lead expanded to 4-1 when Brandon Nimmo hit a two run homer of his own.

In the game, Wacha would pick up the win, and with a scoreless ninth, Edwin Diaz was credited with a save.

Simulated Recap: Mets Waste Big Effort From Conforto

Rick Porcello allowed five runs over five innings, and the Mets never could quite catch up to the Diamondbacks.

In the loss, Michael Conforto had a big game going 4-for-5 with a double and an RBI.

The Mets other runs came off of back-to-back bases loaded walls to Porcello and Jeff McNeil.

The Mets had a chance in the ninth with runners at the corners and one out, but they couldn’t get another run across. As a result, the Mets lost 5-3.

Simulated Recap: Conforto Homers

Yesterday, the Mets could only muster a run against the Pirates. When Michael Conforto hit a two run homer in the first, the Mets surpassed that total. They also provided Steven Matz with more than enough run support.

Matz picked up the win after allowing just one run over 5.2 innings.

Wilson Ramos also homered. Pete Alonso, Brandon Nimmo, and Jeff McNeil also delivered runs in the Mets 6-1 win.

Simulated Recap: Mets Can’t Complete Sweep

The Mets just couldn’t complete the sweep of the Pirates. Marcus Stroman didn’t last five even though he allowed just three runs.

The Mets could only muster a Pete Alonso RBI single in the third which then gave the Mets a 1-0 lead. The Mets couldn’t muster another run as they lost 5-1.

Simulated Recap: Mets deGrominate Pirates

Most teams don’t have a chance against Jacob deGrom. That goes double for a team as bad as the Pittsburgh Pirates. When deGrom gets run support, things turn ugly for the other team.

When Pete Alonso and Michael Conforto went back-to-back in the first to give the Mets a 3-0 lead, it was all over. In addition to his first inning homer, Alonso would hit another.

From there, deGrom allowed just one run over 6.1 as the Mets were on to route the Pirates 9-1.

Simulated Recap: Mets Back In Black

Well, it might be just a gimmick for the MLB The Show, but it was once again Friday Night Black Jerseys at Citi Field. These Mets looked good in them beating the Pirates 2-0.

Michael Wacha allowed one earned over five getting the no decision. After he allowed a run in the top of the fifth, Jeff McNeil homered to even the game.

Walker Lockett came on in relief, and he’d get the win after pitching a scoreless inning, and Robinson Cano scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the sixth. Edwin Diaz picked up the save.
