9 comments
Saturday afternoon in Flushing, the Bronx Bombers lived up to their name, as Michael Pineda blanked the Mets for 5 1/3 as the Yankees beat the Mets 5-0. Noah Syndergaard started for the Mets and the Yankees got to work fast.  Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner hit back to back soft singles to right-center to start the game. Then former Met Carlos Beltran hit a long 3 run homer, his 16th on the year and the Yanks led 3-0. After that Syndergaard settled down, until the top of the 6th. With 1 out Beltran singled, and then Brian McCann followed with a 2 run home run to right, his 26th on the year and the Yanks led 5-0.  Syndergaard lasted 6 innings allowing 7 hits, 5 runs (all earned) while striking out 8.  Pineda allowed just 4 hits while walking 1 and striking out 4 notching the win, he improves to 11-8. Syndergaard falls to 8-7. The Mets only managed singles by Curtis Granderson, Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda, Kelly Johnson, Michael Cuddyer and Wilmer Flores. The Mets managed two base runners in the bottom of the 9th but Joe Girardi made two pitching changes and retired the side with his closer Andrew Miller in a non-save situation.With the loss the Mets fall to 84-64 on the year and 47-27 at Citi Field.  The Met lead in the NL east falls to 7 ½ games, the Nats take on the Marlins Saturday night.  A Nat win will cut the Met lead to 7 games with 14 to go. A Nat loss will keep the lead at 8 games. Sunday night is the rubber game of this Subway series. Matt Harvey (12-7 2.88) goes for the Mets, C.C. Sabathia (4-9 4.93) goes for the Bombers.

Not to be gloom and doom here but the Nats who's season everyone says is over has just won again along with YC's cool down and Strasburg goes tomorrow and we get Miller on Monday against Verrett as Degrom rests so the Dark Knight really needs to get it in gear NOW! Colon and Matz are the only 2 starters who have pitched well in week's and I know we really don't want this to come down to the final series with everything on the line against Washington. I still have game 162 in 07' and 08' in my nightmares. I'm creeping closer to the edge so someone please talk me down here.

LOL.....I had a nightmare last night were we were down to game 162 even with the Nats and its Harvey against Strasburg and it didn't end well......nah it CAN'T happen again....right?

Gary, I think we can all identify with your fears! But let me set your mind at rest - it ain't gonna happen again. The lead is bigger, the team is better. They've been flat for a few games but they will come roaring back. And the thing is, they don't need to win much to get in. It would take a truly extreme turn-around for things to go wrong, and this team is not going to go 0-16, or even 2-14, or even 4-12.

Even if they lose tonight!!

54 years of Met baseball can have you up at night.....I know your right but.....:)
