Mets 4, Rangers 3—Peterson powers Mets to big win against Rangers

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ David Peterson’s dad powers came in early with a dominant performance against the Rangers. The Mets had just suffered their first three game losing streak of the year, and Chris Bassitt found himself out just hours before he was supposed to pitch on the COVID IL. So David Peterson, who had been on paternity watch for the last few weeks, was called upon to make the start. The Mets offense had been struggling for the past few games, but facing the Rangers rookie pitcher Glenn Otto, who had not been spectacular at any point up to the start,...

Marlins 3, Mets 2—No sweep

Marlins 3, Mets 2—No sweep

Photo by Eric Espada/ The Mets were walked off by the Marlins in a game that they could have won. The Mets had an opportunity to sweep the Marlins this afternoon, but they did not. Despite a strong start from David Peterson, the team squandered opportunities and scored just twice, setting up what felt like an inevitable walk-off home run by the Marlins off Adam Ottavino in the bottom of the ninth. With that, the Marlins won the game 3-2, while the Mets won two of three games in the series. These losses will happen, but there was a particular sting to this one as J.D....

Mets 6, Marlins 0—Another day, another series victory

Photo by Christopher Pasatieri/ David Peterson pitched 5 1⁄3 scoreless innings and the Mets took the series from the Marlins. It was a match-up between lefty starters drafted in the first round of the 2017 draft, and while David Peterson was drafted seven picks below Trevor Rogers, he came out on top today. The Mets’ lefty held the Marlins off the board, while the offense scrapped together six runs over the course of the day to give themselves a 6-0 victory to win the series against their division rivals. It’s been a rough stretch for Peterson after a promising...
