September 20, 2018 1:55 AM Noah Syndergaard gets chased as Mets fall to Phillies

The right-hander posted a 5.75 ERA in four starts against the Phillies this year. Zach Eflin and five relievers combined on a six-hitter and Odubel Herrera added two-run 68

September 16, 2018 2:50 AM Jeurys Familia gives up three-run homer in eighth inning and A's fall, keeping Yanks' wild card lead at 1.5 games

Jake Bauers hit a three-run homer off Jeurys Familia in the eighth inning to help the Tampa Bay Rays set back the playoff-chasing Oakland Athletics with a 7-5 win Saturday night.

September 15, 2018 11:20 PM Mets waste a Brandon Nimmo homer in loss to Red Sox, now hand the ball to Jacob deGrom for a potential series victory

The Mets ace will take the ball Sunday afternoon with a lot riding on his start against Chris Sale. DeGrom will have a chance to bolster his case for the NL Cy Young award if he can silence the roaring Red Sox lineup, and he could help this improving club take two-of-three from the best team in baseball after the 5-3 loss to Boston on Saturday. All that, of course 65

September 15, 2018 5:59 AM Mets' Noah Syndergaard on Boston rodent: New York rats way worse

Noah Syndergaard's first start at historic Fenway Park was everything the right-hander could have asked for. For the second time this week, a rodent was on the loose in a dugout at the Red Sox's famed ballpark, this time keeping Mets players on their toes -- and up on the rail -- as it made its way under the team's bench in the bottom of the third inning 44

The $5 seats available Thursday for thrifty 50

September 13, 2018 5:00 AM Mets offense goes off in rout of Marlins following miserable rain delay

If only the Mets bats woke up like this once in a while for Jacob deGrom, there would be no NL Cy Young debate. The Mets exploded for more runs than they’ve scored for their ace in his last five outings to coast to a 13-0 rout of Miami following a near six-hour rain delay. The teams were set to play a single-admission doubleheader Wednesday to make up Monday's 72

According to sources, Wright is hoping to play in at least two games during the last homestand 51

September 11, 2018 11:45 PM David Wright plays in second simulated game, says he's 'satisfied' with progress so far

David Wright was back on the field Tuesday, albeit a soggy and muddy field that prevented him from taking grounders. But the Captain was out there nonetheless, donning an NYPD cap on September 11th, and taking the next step in his quest to make a big-league return for the Mets by taking cuts in his second simulated game. His first was on Saturday, when he hit an opposite-field 55

September 9, 2018 1:00 PM Out of the bullpen for 9/11 anniversary: FDNY commish to throw out first pitch at Citi Field

FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro looks into the past and sees the flame-throwing southpaw of his youth. He's a little less certain about the 69-year-old version set to throw out the first pitch before the Mets take on the Miami Marlins on the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. "It's been a long time since I actually pitched 63
