Games 110-112: Pitcher & Position Player of The Game: Sweep on the Rox

Mets take three straight from the Colorado Rockies at home behind strong pitching performances.

Game 110: Carlos Torres

Mejia had an odd outing on this day. He was dominant through five innings but struggled in the sixth. He allowed a home run to the Rockies’ Blackmon before a ball bounced under the umpire’s mask hitting him in the neck. After a long delay he was removed. Oddly, Mejia threw no warm up pitches after the 15 minute delay. He got Dexter Fowler to fly out but allowed a single and then another man reached on Wilmer Flores error. Mejia then walked Michael Cuddyer.

With the scored tied at 2 and bases loaded with nobody out, entered Carlos Torres. Torres got two quick outs, and pitched another inning, to preserve the tie that would eventually turn into a 3-2 win.

Game 111: Matt Harvey

What more can be said? He’s Amazin’. Harvey pitched his first complete game shutout, allowing just four hits, walking none and striking out six in nine innings of the Mets 5-0 win. This is only his first full season folks.

Game 112: Dillon Gee

Gee is not flashy like Harvey, Wheeler or Mejia, but since his April swoon, which some might blame on his recovery from surgery last year, he has been excellent. Gee continued his solid season with a 7.2 inning, 1 run performance off 8 hits and three strikeouts. The lone run came off a solo shot from Corey Dickerson as the Mets won 2-1. Gee has been the definition of “reliable,” as he has pitched at least 6 1-3 innings in each of his last seven games, most by a Mets pitcher this season, and he’s 2-1 with a 2.39 ERA in that period.

Game 110: Juan Lagares

Lagares was 2-4 with 3 RBIs batting out of the 5 spot. An assist goes to Eric Young, whose speed led to the winning run in the 8th inning.

Game 111: Wilmer Flores

Granted the Mets likely would have won 2-0 without the hit, but Wilmer Flores gave Harvey some much needed breathing room in the bottom of the 8th when he cracked a hard three-run double with the bases loaded and two outs. Flores, up for the injured David Wright, got his first hit earlier in the Mets 5-0 win.

Game 112:  Marlon Byrd

This was an uneventful day for the Mets position players. Byrd gets the nod though due to scoring one of the Mets two runs and gunning down a Rockie at 2b.
