Against the dregs of the division, the Mets Score can do no wrong. In this game, they made the most of their chances by scoring eight runs. It all started when Strange-Gordon crushed a baseball past Alonso and drilled base runner Maikel Franco. Franco was just a few steps off first when the play was ruled out.
While he can’t win every game, Edwin Diaz has shown he’s one of the best pitchers in baseball. He’s capable of striking out batters at an incredible rate. That allows manager Buck Showalter to trust him with more outs. But Diaz also knows his limits. In Game 2, he threw an inning that included just one run and walked one.
Edwin Diaz’s entrance song “Narco” made the crowd go wild. The Australian musician performed the song live on Citi Field grass. The song is a collaboration with DJ Blasterjaxx, and it was a big hit for the Mets. Diaz got the last two outs of the eighth inning and then shut down the Pirates in the ninth inning for his 30th save.
Diaz, meanwhile, has been great in his last three appearances. In Game 5, he was called upon with two outs in the eighth inning after Adam Ottavino gave up a two-out RBI single to Willy Adames. He then struck out Rowdy Tellez on strikes and closed out the game with a perfect ninth inning. Diaz’s streak of successful saves is now at 19 games, and his 0.87 ERA and 108/17 K/BB ratio are great numbers.
Although the Mets are down three games to the Nationals, they’re still battling for their playoff hopes, and they’re very close to winning four of five. Unfortunately, Diaz blew his second save in a row in Game 3 on Saturday. He gave up a walk-off hit to Carter Kieboom. It’s the second time this year that the closer has been on the wrong side of soul-crushing losses.
Jacob deGrom’s performance in Sunday’s game against the Padres was a testament to his ability to pitch in a tough situation. Despite being in a position where the Mets were looking at elimination, deGrom delivered a six-inning gem. In that span, he struck out eight batters and gave up two runs on five hits.
Despite the rough start to Tuesday’s game, Jacob deGrom pitched five innings of one-run ball, earning a rare Mets loss. The rain delayed the game by 20 minutes, but the young pitcher did not disappoint the crowd at Citi Field. In fact, he went 0-for-4 in the game, but was still able to impress the Mets’ faithful.
The Mets had several scoring opportunities in the first five innings, but were unable to capitalize on them. In the sixth, Jacob deGrom let in a three-run home run to Oneil Cruz. However, it was enough to give the Mets a 3-2 lead in the series.
Jacob deGrom’s debut came after he was forced to miss most of the first two games of the season due to a shoulder injury. In that game, he allowed two runs and threw 76 pitches, with 57 strikes. He set down 16 batters, while giving up one walk. He has a 1.62 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings. His offense also scored runs, led by Max Muncy who went 4-for-5.
The Mets have won 101 games and are now in a must-win situation in September against the Cubs. If they can win that game, they’ll have a chance to move onto the next round of the playoffs. With a win, they will be one step closer to a World Series appearance.
Trent Grisham made a clutch catch in the bottom of the fifth inning of Game 3 of the National League Wild Card Series. The New York Mets trailed the Padres 4-0 in the bottom of the fifth. Pete Alonso led off the inning with a base hit to right field. But Padres pitcher Joe Musgrove struck out Jeff McNeil to end the inning.
Grisham has struggled in his past two starts against right-handed pitching. Grisham has only been able to hit right-handed pitching two times in 21 games. As a result, he’s been benched in recent games and lost his platoon role in center field to Jose Azocar.
Grisham was temporarily benched in mid-September after the Padres’ 7-3 loss in Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Series. The Mets got the shaky part of the Padres bullpen and had some success. Grisham reached base three times and scored three times. Then, in the top of the third inning, he homered against Jacob deGrom.
The Mets had a chance to win the game in Game 3 but were shut out in Game 3 by a remarkable play by Padres centerfielder Trent Grisham. Grisham’s catch on the warning track was a spectacular play, resulting in a double play. Had Grisham not been able to make the play, Pete Alonso would have scored from first base and Mark Canha might have advanced to third base, giving the Padres a two-run lead. The Mets would have also had men on third and fourth with one out.
Brandon Nimmo is on a roll as he continues his late-season surge. After a lukewarm start to the season, Nimmo had two hits in each of his last three at-bats and crossed the plate three times in a 13-4 win over the Marlins on Tuesday. With four multi-hit games over his last seven starts, Nimmo is batting.393, with five RBIs and nine runs scored. This has helped him close the gap on his 100-run mark. Brandon Nimmo will lead off against the Oakland A’s this week.
Nimmo’s second-inning double put the Mets ahead 2-0. In the third inning, Nimmo doubled down the right field line and scored two runs. In the fourth inning, he hit his 15th home run of the season to make the score 4-0.
Nimmo’s recent hot streak has left the Mets soaring and led the team in batting average. However, he left the game with tightness in his left quadriceps. While this is not a particularly serious injury, it still makes him a day-to-day player going into Friday’s series opener against the Athletics.
Nimmo’s catch robbed Dodgers slugger Justin Turner of a game-tying home run in the bottom of the seventh inning. His reaction was an emphatic fist-pump, resulting in a standing ovation from the crowd and Mets ace Jacob deGrom.
The final Subway Series game was an emotional one for Pete Alonso. The Mets had lost four of five games to the Padres and were looking for a third consecutive win. However, Pete Alonso’s two at-bats ended in empty bases and a missed pop-up. The game ended in a 4-2 loss for the Mets.
It was a season-long slump for the Mets, but Alonso’s home run was a breath of fresh air for the team. While it didn’t give them a victory, the home run by Alonso was an emotional cleansing. The Mets’ win streak is now at four games, and they have climbed to the top of the NL East. The Cubs, meanwhile, have lost nine games in a row.
Pete Alonso homered three times in his past three games. He’s now homering in five of his last seven games. During his recent power surge, he has driven in 16 runs. With 131 RBI in 131 games this season, Alonso has reached 40 home runs for the second time in his career.
Alonso’s RBI total remains second in the Major Leagues. He is tied with Aaron Judge for the most RBIs in the league. The slugger’s one RBI on Monday tied the game in the eighth inning and extended his RBI streak to seven games. He is only two RBIs shy of his career high.Don’t forget to check digitalwayss.com for the latest Business, Health, Lifestyle, Tech, and Sports updates news
