  • Syndergaard shaky, bats struggle vs. Phils ace
    As the summer ages, three National League Cy Young Award contenders have poked their necks above the rest. There is Jacob deGrom, New York's local favorite, who needs no introduction for those within a baseball's throw of Queens. There is Washington's Max Scherzer, whose gaudy strikeout total could be his ticket to the Cy. And there is Philadelphia's Aaron Nola, whom the Mets faced Friday with a chance to do deGrom a favor.
  • Zamora called, makes MLB debut; Wahl to DL
    When Daniel Zamora jogged out of the Mets' bullpen for the first time in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Phillies, he became the franchise-record-tying 54th player the Mets used this season.

The 24 runs scored set a franchise record, and the combined 40 runs scored over two consecutive games are the most since the Red Sox in 1953, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Even Jason Vargas is fresh off one of his best starts of the season.

  • Nimmo takes pitch off finger; X-rays negative
    Brandon Nimmo's career-best on-base streak came to a painful end in the third inning Thursday, when a Ranger Suarez fastball hit him on the left index finger as he tried to check his swing.

  • Plawecki's slam caps 9-run 6th in Mets' rout
    The Mets' offense broke out for 19 hits against the Orioles at Camden Yards. Brandon Nimmo's RBI triple -- one of his five hits in the game -- was New York's third three-bagger of the night, part of a nine-run sixth inning capped by a Kevin Plawecki grand slam. The O's nearly kept pace in the hit column with 12, including a long two-run homer by Jonathan Villar, but the Mets added five walks and two hit-by-pitches to keep the line moving on the basepaths in a runaway win.
  • Nimmo goes 5-for-5, falls homer short of cycle
    If Brandon Nimmo was going to hit for the cycle Wednesday, the opportunity presented itself in his fifth plate appearance, when Sean Gilmartin looped a 78-mph slider into the strike zone. Already 4-for-4 on the night, Nimmo fouled it off, then reached base one pitch later when Gilmartin hit him with a fastball.
