Sometimes All-Star Breaks are longer than they expected. I apologize for the delay in the “daily” post and this is an abridged version to get the P&PPOTG back on track. Let’s take the Way Back Machine back to the Mets end of July!
Game 92: Scott Rice
Mets lost 13-8 to Philly as Hefner and most of pen struggles. Rice pitched 1.1 scoreless.
Game 93: Gonzalez German
German relieved Wheeler who needed to leave in the 5th inning with a high pitch count of 106. He kept Phillies off the board for 1.1 innings as Mets win 5-4.
Game 94: Matt Harvey
Harvey wins the game and series vs Philly with a 5-0 win as he strikes out 10 and allows only three hits in seven innings.
Game 95: Dillon Gee
Dillon Gee gets the hard luck No-Decision as he goes seven scoreless allowing 2 hits, 3 walks and striking out three. Unfortunately Parnell blows the 4th save of the season with help from a passed ball by John Buck.
Game 96: Carlos Torres
In Torres’ first start of the season he goes six innings allowing 1 run off 7 hits and 2 walks. He struck out six as Mets beat the Braves 4-1.
Game 97: Gonzalez German
German pitched 2.2 scoreless in relief of the ineffective Jeremy Hefner in the Mets 8-2 loss to Atlanta.
Game 98: Zack Wheeler
The Mets split the home series vs Atlanta as Wheeler pitches six innings allowing 4 runs, 3 earned, in the 7-4 win. He struck out five and walked two.
Game 99: Jenrry Mejia? Holy Cow it’s Jenrry Mejia!
Look which prospect is back from obscurity. Jenrry Mejia, who is only a few months older than Harvey but seems much more in Mets fans’ minds, went seven innings allowing seven hits and no runs. That’s right, in his return to the majors Mejia pitched a shutout vs Washington, striking out 7. After the game Terry announced he would be a permanent part of the rotation.
Game 100: Matt Harvey
Harvey gets the hard luck No-Decision – AGAIN – allowing just one unearned run in 8 innings off five hits and one walk. He struck out seven. Hawkins would get the loss in 9th in the 2-1 loss at Washington.
Game 101: Dillon Gee
Gee didn’t have a great line, giving up 4 runs off 3 homers in seven innings, but he was the best Mets pitcher in the 4-1 loss at Nationals.
Game 102: Josh Edgin
The Mets were decimated 14-1 in the series finale against Washington. Edgin pitched one inning and is the only one of five Mets pitchers who didn’t give up a run. Torres started and gave up 8 in three innings.
Game 103: Jeremy Hefner
Hefner claimed he and Warthen corrected a mechanical flaw that resulted in bad performances in his previous 2 outings. He wasn’t great but he did better; 5.1 innings, 5 runs, 3 of which were earned thanks to a badly timed Quintanilla error. Mets won 6-5 vs the Marlins.
Game 104: Zack Wheeler
Wheeler had his most impressive outing of his young career in Miami, going seven innings and allowing 2 ER off three hits and 3 walks. He struck out five. Wheeler allowed all of hits and runs in the seventh inning as Mets win 4-2.
Game 105: Jenrry Mejia
Mejia wasn’t as impressive in the Mets 3-2 loss vs the Marlins as his previous outing, but still pitched well. He went six innings allowing 3 runs off six hits and 1 walk while striking out 4.
Game 92: Marlon Byrd
Byrd hit a three-run home run off Kyle Kendrick in the 4th to cut the deficit to 11-3. Yeah, this game ended early.
Game 93: Daniel Murphy
Mets win 5-4 as Murphy go 2-4 with a run and an rbi. Byrd also goes 2-4 with a run and rbi but strands a pair of runners.
Game 94: Juan Lagares
David Wright, Marlon Byrd and Juan Lagares all hit home runs in Mets 5-0 win. Lagares gets the nod for the great defense behind Harvey.
Game 95: Ike Davis
Ike Davis was 2-4 and drove in the only run in the 2-1 loss.
Game 96: Juan Lagares
A big reason for Carlos Torres day is Juan Lagares defense in center. He also went 1-2 with a run and an RBI in the 4-1 win.
Game 97: Daniel Murphy
Daniel Murphy was 2-3 with the Mets two RBIs in the 8-2 loss vs Atlanta.
Game 98: Daniel Murphy
The Mets 2B was 3-5 with two runs and an RBI in the 7-4 win vs Atlanta.
Game 99: Daniel Murphy
It’s Murphy week! Daniel Murphy went 4-5 in Washington with three runs, five RBI including 2 home runs. He had 10 total bases. Enjoy this cause the next week or so of PPotG will be weak offensive numbers…..
Game 100: Josh Satin
Josh Satin went 1-4 with an RBI in the 2-1 loss. I told you these next few would be rough.
Game 101: David Wright
The Mets captain was 2-4 and drove in the Mets lone run in the 4-1 loss. Moving along…..
Game 102: Marlon Byrd
Byrd was 2-3 with the Mets lone RBI……in a 14-1 loss vs Washington……moving along…….
Game 103: Daniel Murphy
Finally an impressive line: 2-4 with 2 runs and 3 RBI for the Mets second baseman in the 6-5 win vs the Marlins.
Game 104: Juan Lagares
Lagares was 3-3 with 2 RBIs and some solid defense that helped Wheeler throw 6+ no hit innings. in the Mets 4-2 win in Miami.
Game 105: Marlon Byrd
Byrd went 2-4 with a run in the 3-2 loss vs the Marlins.
