The New York Mets were defeated by the Philadelphia Phillies 9-4 on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park. Before the Mets could blink, the Phillies had a dominating 9-0 lead. Jonathon Niese turned in his worst outing of the season, allowing eight runs on ten hits and one walk through only four innings of work. The Mets offense came alive late in the game, but it was far too late to make considerable damage. The loss takes them to a putrid 60-68 record as they slip closer to last place in the NL East.

Niese is having a rough go as of late.

The New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres 5-4 in extra inning fashion Monday night. The Mets began the night with two home runs in the second inning giving them a 3-0 lead. R.A.

With the game tied, Scott Hairston drove in the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th inning. Jason Isringhausen closed it out successfully for his 300th career save. 

 

Mr. 300!

The New York Mets were defeated by the San Diego Padres 3-2 in the finale of the four-game series. They only mustered three hits the entire afternoon, having more luck achieving six base on balls. Lucas Duda drove in the Mets only runs on a double in the third inning to put them up 2-0. Jonathon Niese pitched well but slowly lost the lead in the later innings. A botched play in the field decided the game as the Mets fall under .500 for the season.

Niese has all the right to look frustrated as an error costs him the game.

The New York Mets dropped their second straight game in a row on Sunday afternoon against the Washington Nationals in a 3-2 loss. Scott Hairston provided the sole offense with his two solo homers and Jonathon Niese pitched his best through 5 1/3 innings. Outside of Carlos Beltran earlier in the week, the Mets had a quiet trading deadline. They are now 55-53 heading into the dog days of August. 

Hairston would've been the hero of the game...except they lost.

The Mets guaranteed themselves a series win in Cincy, and beat the Reds in a back-and-forth game.  They move above .500 once again, and improve their record to 52-51.

The game started out with the Reds basically trying to give it away.  The Mets took advantage of shoddy Reds defense to build a 4-0 lead after 3 innings — all runs were unearned.  Starter Jon Niese cruised through the first 4 innings — just 3 hits and 1 run.  But an awful 5th inning that was punctuated by a Joey Votto 2-run homer did him in for the night.  He left with a 5-4 deficit.

The New York Mets defeated the Cincinnati Reds in a 4-2 victory on Monday night. The Mets offense exploded in the seventh inning, giving them team a 4-1 lead. Three of those runs were driven in with two outs. R.A. Dickey backed them up on the mound, pitching 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball. The bullpen closed the door without allowing a run to lead the Mets back to a .500 record. 

You know Wright is doing well when his tongue is sticking out.

The New York Mets failed to sweep the St. Louis Cardinals, as they took a 6-2 loss in one of the shortest games of the season. Albert Pujols set the tone for the game with a quick two-run shot to left field in the 1st inning off Jonathon Niese. A messy 5th put the game away for good. The Mets had six base runners all game and never really posed a threat to rally. 

Niese had a couple of bad innings.

With the All Star Break underway, the New York Mets are one game above .500 at 46-45 on the season, and trail the wild card leading Atlanta Braves by 7.5 games. The Mets have certainly exceeded expectations thus far in 2011, as most fans would’ve expected them to be way out of the playoff run at this point in the season. Now, this doesn’t mean Mets fans should get crazy excited about making a push for October baseball. Three of the team’s four starting infielders (David Wright, Ike Davis, and Jose Reyes) are currently on the disabled list, and will probably make their return after the trade deadline. But, regardless, the Mets have played very nice baseball over the first 91 games of the season, and I’m going to evaluate the areas that deserve the most credit.

Terry Collins deserves much of the credit for a winning baseball team in Queens.

The Mets are three games over .500 for the first time in the 2011 season. Much of this is a result of strong pitching out of Jonathon Niese and the bullpen and some clutch scoring in today’s game. Ruben Tejada came up with a huge two-run double to put the Mets up 4-1 in the 6th inning. Both Parnell and K-Rod pitched scoreless innings in relief of Niese to lead the Mets to a 5-3 victory.

 

Tejada slams a 2-RBI double. My Binghamton guy...
