Mets win it 5-1.
The good bullpen showed up.
Harper ejected....LOL.

The Wrap:
Lugo excelling as starter, ready to go deeper

Frustrated Bryce ejected: 'I need to be better'

Notes: Nido update; Giménez starts again

I really do not want to see Wacha or Gsellman on the mound again this season. They're both trash. Get rid of them and bring in a few fresh arms from Brooklyn, Port St. Lucie or the MLB player pool.

Mets trail Baltimore 9-1 after 5.

They're sucking wind today and the bats are asleep.

Orioles vs. Mets - Game Recap - September 8, 2020 - ESPN

These three numbers tell the Mets' story

Notes: deGrom to start Friday; Gsellman hurt

Trainer's room:
Mets LHP Steven Matz (left shoulder bursitis) struck out five in two innings during a simulated game at the alternate site in Brooklyn on Tuesday. Mets relief pitcher Robert Gsellman exited with an undisclosed injury after throwing a pitch to the O's Renato Nunez in the eighth.

Up next:
Mets: RHP Rick Porcello (1-4, 5.54 ERA) allowed two runs in six innings in a no-decision to Philadelphia on Friday. He is winless in his last five starts, his longest stretch since going winless in six consecutive starts in 2015 for Boston, will start the finale on Wednesday. He'll face Orioles' RHP Jorge Lopez (1-0, 5.59 ERA) who makes his third start for Baltimore.

Ugghh. Mets lost again.
Final...Toronto 7- Mets 3.
They scored twice as many runs in just 1 inning on Friday (10 in the 4th), than they scored in the last 2 games combined (5)...(2 yesterday + 3 today).

Mets need to win every remaining series the rest of the way to even have a slim chance at making it into the postseason....but after tonight's 4-1 loss to Philly, that door began closing a little more.






Trainer's room:
Mets C Tomas Nido remains on the COVID-19 injured list with no timeline for returning to the team.



Up next:
RHP Jacob deGrom (4-1, 1.67 ERA) starts Wednesday night for the Mets. Zack Wheeler (4-0, 2.47) will take the mound for the Phillies against his former team after missing a start because of an issue with his nail. deGrom is 8-1 with a 2.16 ERA in 16 career starts vs. Philadelphia.

Wow.....Mets were down 4-0 early....but began chipping away in the middle innings, and again in the late innings to win it 5-4....and they got a much needed solid effort from the bullpen after deGrom left after just 2 innings.

Another heckuva win for the Amazin's tonight in Philly.
They're playing with some more urgency and spirit. Good to see.
With only 10 games to go, it'd be nice if they can keep it going.
