Mets Morning News for August 13, 2022

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Your Saturday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets and Phillies had themselves a nail-biter in the series opener last night after strong starts by both Max Scherzer and Ranger Suárez. After Marte was nailed at home trying to score on a fly ball to left field in the bottom of the ninth to send the game to extras, the Phillies scored in the tenth on a sacrifice fly of their own (mainly because Tomás Nido missed a hop that he should have been able to handle), and the Mets fell to their...

Phillies 2, Mets 1—Mets lose pitcher’s duel in extras

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Max Scherzer struggled early, but settled down to give the Mets a strong outing. But the offense was not able to pick him up with any run support. The Phillies bested the Mets 2-1 in extra innings to open this weekend series at Citi Field. This contest between the NL East rivals became the pitching duel that was perhaps expected between Max Scherzer and Ranger Suárez. However, it did not begin that way. Scherzer did not look sharp early and the Phillies made him throw 43 pitches through the first two innings. The Phillies got on the board...

Player Meter: Pitchers, August 1-7

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Folks, the deGoat fireball is back. And what a sight for sore eyes it is. For the first time in the 2022 season, Mets fans got what they’ve been dreaming for since Opening Day: a Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer 1-2 punch at the top of the rotation. And it lived up to the hype in every possible way. In fact, aside from a clunker from Taijuan Walker, the starting rotation all pitched incredibly well this week, including a fill in start by David Peterson. The bullpen...

New York Mets: Not even bat boy can slow down Max Scherzer

When Max Scherzer is rolling on the mound, there are few things that can shake him … not even the New York Mets bat boy. Scherzer was once again ace material on Saturday night as he helped the New York Mets sweep a double-header from the Atlanta Braves with a dominating performance in the nightcap.

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Your Sunday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets had a great day at Citi Field. In game one of the doubleheader the offense exploded for eight runs led by Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor. On the mound David Peterson was fantastic but the bullpen was not so there was a call for trumpets on a day where the offense scored plenty. Fortunately that didn’t come back to bite them in the nightcap. Max Scherzer was brilliant through seven innings while the Mets took advantage of sloppy play by the Braves....

Max Scherzer, Pete Alonso propel Mets to key sweep over rival Braves

The NL East cannot be won in August, never mind in one series, even if it is five games. But the Mets are at least giving themselves a little more room to breathe. Strong starting pitching from David Peterson and Max Scherzer, plus standout offensive performances by Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso, fueled the Mets...

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Max Scherzer was everything the Mets needed in the second game of the doubleheader. Max Scherzer was simply sensational in the Mets 6-2 win in the nightcap of the doubleheader. He pitched seven scoreless innings and struck out eleven Atlanta batters after the bullpen was stretched thin in the first game of the doubleheader. He was brilliant throughout but he struck out the side in the seventh to put a final flourish on his masterpiece. Keith put a capper on the night when he said, “Folks you’re watching greatness.” Nothing else can be...

Max Scherzer shuts down Braves in 6-2 loss

Photo by Adam Hunger/ The Braves suffer a doubleheader sweep at the hands of the Mets. Some sloppy defense and a dominant performance by Max Scherzer helped send the Atlanta Braves to a 6-2 loss in Game 2 of Saturday’s doubleheader. After Max Fried and Scherzer put up zeroes in the first two innings, the Mets got something going in the third. Tomas Nido led off the inning with double over the head of Eddie Rosario in left. Brandon Nimmo tried to move him over, but popped up the bunt attempt for the first out. Fried then walked Starling Marte to put runners at first...
