5/28/2016 | Ejection is Thor subject for Mets

Seven months later, the ill will of last year's postseason spilled back onto the field.

5/27/2016 | Mets not yet ready to activate Flores from DL

Despite facing the first of four left-handed pitchers in five games Friday, the Mets did not activate Wilmer Flores from the 15-day disabled list. It was the first day that Flores, who has been sidelined since May 12, was eligible to come off the DL.


5/27/2016 | Thor set for rematch with Maeda as Mets honor '86

While the Mets continue to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1986 World Series championship, a title they won thanks in large part to a dazzling young rotation, they send one of the jewels of modern-day pitching to the mound in Noah Syndergaard on Saturday night against Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers at Citi Field.


5/27/2016 | Mets 86 Dodgers after fast start, Urias finish

The Dodgers rallied in the ninth to erase a four-run deficit, but Curtis Granderson saved the best of the drama for last.

5/26/2016 | Student of the game: Yo shows ability to adjust

Throughout the Mets' recent three-game series with the Nationals, the chairs generally sat empty, unused, save for one consistent occupant.


5/25/2016 | Even-steven: Mets, Nats expect long battle

The Mets rode a dominant outing from left-hander Steven Matz to a 2-0 victory Wednesday afternoon to take two out of three games from the Nationals at Nationals Park. They leave Washington a half-game behind the Nats for first place in the National League East and with a measure of revenge after Washington came to New York last week and won two out of three games at Citi Field.


5/25/2016 | Making it look easy: Matz wins 7th straight

Here was the devil's bargain Mets manager Terry Collins faced with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning Wednesday afternoon at Nationals Park. Reigning National League MVP Bryce Harper was at the plate, representing the tying run. Closer Jeurys Familia was ready to go in the bullpen. Collins, instead, stuck with rookie right-hander Steven Matz. This was a big game for the Mets, as games in May go. But some things matter more than one victory.


5/25/2016 | Familia sets Mets' mark with nailbiting save

Jeurys Familia has spent his past year building a resume as one of the best closers in Mets history. When he escaped a two-on, no-outs jam Wednesday to seal a 2-0 win over the Nationals, Familia set a franchise record with his 32nd consecutive regular-season save conversion dating back to last season, passing Billy Wagner's 31 straight from 2006-07.


5/25/2016 | Wood, deGrom seek elusive victories in opener

Alex Wood has been one of baseball's best pitchers over the past month. The only problem? He hasn't been able to win any games. Wood will look to correct that trend when the Dodgers travel to New York for a three-game series beginning Friday at Citi Field. Jacob deGrom will start for the Mets.


5/25/2016 | Masterful Matz leads Mets' shutout of Nats

Steven Matz and Tanner Roark found themselves in a pitchers' duel on Wednesday afternoon at Nationals Park, but it was Matz who came out on top, helping the Mets blank the Nationals, 2-0.

5/25/2016 | Reynolds records first career hit as late sub

The baseball rested on a shelf in Matt Reynolds' locker, ticketed for a spot in his father's collection back home in Oklahoma. Reynolds collected his first career hit in the fifth inning of the Mets' 2-0 win over the Nationals on Wednesday, lining a single to right field.


5/25/2016 | Asdrubal expected to be OK after back spasms

Mets shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera did not take an at-bat or even step foot onto the field in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Nationals, but he nonetheless left the game in the first inning due to back spasms.


5/25/2016 | Cliff Lee's fall and rise a blueprint for Harvey

As was the case late last week, the Mets are extending the leash on struggling starter Matt Harvey, letting him make his next scheduled start on time, following another eye-catching, ERA-raising night against the Nationals. But given their competitive state, the Mets can't reasonably let this situation linger much longer.


5/25/2016 | Mets will not skip Harvey's next start

Given any number of tools to try to spark struggling starter Matt Harvey to success, the Mets on Wednesday again opted for the battering ram. They will not send Harvey to the Minor Leagues, place him on the disabled list or even skip his next start; instead, the Mets will continue to bull forward with Harvey in the hopes that he can rediscover his previous All-Star form.


5/25/2016 | Harvey's struggles continue vs. Nationals
