Mets 2011 Games
Mets 3 Reds 0 Miguel Batista closes out 50 years of Mets baseball in Nelson Figueroa -like fashion, spinning a two-hit, complete game shutout.
Reds 5 Mets 4 Strange … nowhere in the Mets media guide, nor in the scorebook, nor on the Mets.com website does it say “September 27: Jose Reyes Day”. Yet clearly, this was his day. Yet it wasn’t, because the Mets lost. Which was remarkable, considering that Reds manager Dusty Baker didn’t care much about [...]
Reds 6 Mets 5 A tough loss for the Mets, but they did go down fighting and they are guaranteed not to finish in last place.
Phillies 9 Mets 4 The Mets altered their role of “spoiler”, by spoiling the Phillies’ bid for a 9-game losing streak.
Mets 6 Phillies 3 Imagine your team losing eight straight, including getting swept in a doubleheader, and you not in the least bit concerned — because your team is two games away from 100 victories on the season? Must be nice.
Mets 2 Phillies 1 A huge win for the New York Mets, who pull to within 23 games of first place and one game closer to third with five left to play. If only Bud Selig would consider extending the season by another 30 games, the Mets would still be in it. Enough of the [...]
Mets 8 Cardinals 6 It took 156 games, but finally, the Mets accomplished THE MOST UNLIKELY VICTORY OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!!!! (So said Gary Cohen.) I would not want to be in the home-team clubhouse with Tony LaRussa after this ballgame. I might prefer Chinese water torture, or peeling off my fingernails with a pair of [...]
Cardinals 6 Mets 5 It’s official: the Mets will finish the 2011 season with a losing record. Great job, guys. Don’t worry about the won-loss record, all that matters is you battled. Yeah.
Cardinals 11 Mets 6 If this were 1960, the season would now be over. Unfortunately for Mets fans suffering through a meaningless September, there are still 8 more games to go. This was really MUCH closer than the final score indicates. And I know I’ve typewritten these exact words several times this year, but trust [...]
Mets 7 Braves 5 The Mets succeed in their starring role as spoilers, taking this weekend series from the Braves and simultaneously jumping into a tie with the Nationals for third place in the NL East.
Braves 1 Mets 0 Was it surprising to anyone that less than 24 hours after scoring 12 runs on 20 hits, the Mets couldn’t cross the plate once with R.A. Dickey on the mound?
Mets 12 Braves 2 In four innings against the Wild Card leading Braves, the Mets score double the amount of runs they mustered in four games against the previously fourth-place Nationals. Go figure. A nice outburst, but it doesn’t really take the sting out of that four-game fold-up in Flushing.
Nationals 10 Mets 1 The Nationals sweep the Mets in Citi Field and as a result, leapfrog over them and into third place in the NL East.
Nationals 2 Mets 0 With this loss, the Mets have been officially eliminated from postseason competition. Additionally, the Nationals are now one-one-thousandth of a percentage point (.001) behind the Mets in the standings.
Nationals 3 Mets 2 Four straight losses for the Mets, and suddenly, the Nationals are on the verge of hopping over them in the standings.
