Inter-league play is now in full swing, lets take a look at how the NL East teams fared against the AL Sunday.
New York Mets : 4
New York Yankees : 5
Mets Take : The Yankees complete their sweep of the Mets. While you can’t really ever say a team ‘Should have’ done something in the game of baseball, the Mets should have won today. They had every opportunity, Jon Niese pitched very well, allowing only 2 unearned runs trough 7 innings. The two runs occurred after a David Wright error extended the seventh rather then ending it on a ground ball. After the Yankees took the lead in the 8th (with help from another Mets error) the Mets tied it back up in the 9th off an Ike Davis RBI double, but promptly lost in walk-of fashion when Russell Martin hit his second home run of the afternoon. The Mets will try to right the ship as they head to Tampa to take on the Rays.

With inter-league play just around the corner the NL East standings are dealing with division match ups. How did it all play out tonight?
New York Mets : 3
Washington Nationals : 5
Nats’ Take : The Nationals are now on the verge of sweeping the Mets after taking the first two games of the series. When you think about the resiliency of the Nats after the myriad injuries they have faced, it’s hard not to be impressed. Edwin Jackson tossed a nice game going 7 innings, giving up 3 runs (2 ER) and striking out six. He got an early boost when Adam LaRoche hit a 3 run HR in the bottom half of the 1st. The Nats have one more game against the Mets before heading up to Bean Town to face the Red Sawx.
Mets’ Take : The Mets have now lost three straight and they probably would like to snap that losing streak before heading back to New York to take on their cross town rivals; the Yankees in the new House that Ruth Built. The Mets only had three hits tonight, but one belonged to the struggling Ike Davis who also recorded two walks, at least that’s a positive. Other than that there weren’t too many good things to say. If the Mets can win the final game with the Nats at least that would provide some momentum for the weekend series with the Yankees.

St. Louis Cardinals : 0
New York Mets : 8
Mets Take: There is only one subject line for this game and that is Johan Santana. In game number 8,020 in Mets history the franchise finally records its first no hitter. Santana threw an incredible 134 pitches, but went all nine with out allowing a hit. He did give up 5 walks, but that won’t prevent him from grasping his place in Mets history. When you consider what he has done as a Met and how he has rebounded from this most recent shoulder injury, he may be one of the best Met signings ever.

Wednesday the NL East featured big blasts and late inning rallies. Let’s go around the east and see what happened.
Philladelphia Phillies : 10
New York Mets : 6
Mets take: Despite losing two out of three against the rival Phillies the Mets can take solace in their offensive production in this series. The team continues to find ways to produce runs and everyone seems to contribute. Lucas Duda hit a pair of homers for the Mets tonight, the first of which being a 2-run shot off of Cliff Lee, giving the Mets a three run lead in the sixth. The Mets do need to find a solution to their bullpen woes, the Phillies scored 8 of their 10 runs in the 7th, 8th and 9th off Mets bullpen pitchers.

Filed Under (NL East Chatter) by mrose on 24-05-2012
Sorry everyone for the redundancy and for the lack of content. I am having a lot of trouble finding new things to write about and do them first to put content up, and obviously more importantly…needing writers. Again, were still looking for writers, or creators of blogs for all NL East teams. Please contact me at email@example.com and we will consider anyone! One thing I must warn though, unfortunately this is not a paid job. I am fine with people using this as a springboard, but although we have some advertising $$, I can’t pay. Obviously if we can really turn this around, that can change.
thanks for the support!
