Steven Matz yielded three runs on five hits over three innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday.

Matz was bailed out by the Mets offense after imploding in the third inning. He served up a solo homer to Victor Robles to start the frame before giving up an RBI double to Bryce Harper and walking Spencer Kieboom with the bases loaded. The 27-year-old left-hander issuing three walks and struck out four. He's 5-11 with a 4.14 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 144/57 K/BB ratio in 29 starts. He’ll take on the Marlins at home in his final start of the season on Saturday.

Anthony Swarzak recorded an adventurous five-out save, his fourth of the year, in the Mets' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Swarzak was summoned to preserve a two-run lead with a runner on and one out in the eighth inning. He walked the first batter he faced, Anthony Rendon, to put the tying run on base before striking out Mark Reynolds. He uncorked a wild pitch to advance the tying runs into scoring position, but coaxed an inning-ending pop up from rookie sensation Juan Soto to end the threat. He came back out for the ninth and managed to work around a hit batter and a pair of hard line drives to slam the door. The 33-year-old veteran owns a 6.04 ERA in 27 appearances this year.
Sep 23 - 7:13 PM

Amed Rosario went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base in the Mets' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Rosario slapped a pair of base hits, including an RBI infield hit in the fifth inning, and swiped his 22nd base of the year. The 22-year-old shortstop is still widely considered one of the most talented young infielders in the game, but it hasn't translated into big-time fantasy production at the highest level. He's hitting .261/.299/.391 with 76 runs scored, nine homers, 50 RBI and 22 steals in 568 plate appearances this year.
Sep 23 - 6:59 PM

Michael Conforto went 2-for-6 with a three-run triple in the Mets' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Conforto cleared the bases with a go-ahead, three-run triple, his first of the year, off Nationals reliever Wander Suero in the fourth inning. He also singled in the third inning to record his 29th multi-hit effort of the year. The 25-year-old slugger is hitting .242/.348/.445 with 74 runs scored, 27 homers, 80 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 612 plate appearances.
Sep 23 - 6:55 PM

Jeff McNeil went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base in the Mets' 8-6 win over the Nationals on Sunday.

It was an epic performance from the 26-year-old rookie infielder, who reached base safely in five of six plate appearances in this one. He's recorded an astounding 19 multi-hit efforts in just 57 games since being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on July 24. McNeil singled and swiped second base, his sixth steal of the year, in the first inning, singled in the third, delivered an RBI single and came around to score a run in the fourth, singled in the fifth and capped off his afternoon with a walk in the seventh. He's hitting an absurd .340/.398/.495 with 32 runs scored, three homers and 19 RBI in 221 plate appearances.
Sep 23 - 6:48 PM

Michael Conforto went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks during a shutout loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

That one hit was rather significant because it was the only one his team got all day and it averted a no-hitter. The Mets' offense reached a new low today as it seems they are ready for the season to end. It's been a disappointing season for Conforto's fantasy owners because not only has the young outfielder failed to take a step forward he's actually regressed significantly. After slashing .279/.384/.555 last year he is down to .241/.348/.443 with 27 homers and 77 RBI in 606 plate appearances.
Sep 22 - 7:03 PM

Corey Oswalt allowed two runs over five innings of work and was charged with a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

Trea Turner ripped a two-run dinger off him in the third inning, and on an afternoon where the Mets got shut out that was all it took to hand him a loss. Oswalt struck out four, walked two and surrendered four total knocks. He falls to 3-3 on the season with a 6.08 ERA in 11 starts and five relief appearances. He will likely get one more start this season, against the Marlins on Friday.
Sep 22 - 6:55 PM

Jeff McNeil is not in the Mets' lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals.

The hot-hitting rookie second baseman will get a breather in a premium matchup against Austin Voth and the Nationals. Jack Reinheimer will start in his place at second base and bat eighth for the Mets.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a 4-2 triumph over the Nationals on Friday.

He knocked in the game's first run with a single in the first inning, then plated Michael Conforto with a double in the third inning. That one put the Mets ahead to stay. It's been a very disappointing season for the veteran slugger and his fantasy owners. He is normally a lock for 30 or more homers but injury and poor performance this year have left him staring at a paltry .227/.309/.383 slash line with nine home runs and 35 RBI in 87 games.
Sep 21 - 10:45 PM

Devin Mesoraco went 3-for-3 with a walk and an RBI during Friday's win over the Nationals.

He doubled twice in the game, including one in the third inning that drove in Dominic Smith. The former Reds catcher has been battling back and neck injuries of late. The nice game boosts his season line up to .223/.306/.391 with 10 home runs and 30 RBI in 268 plate appearances.
Sep 21 - 10:39 PM

Robert Gsellman gave up a run in the ninth inning but was still able to convert the save against the Nationals on Friday.

He surrendered a lead-off double to Trea Turner, who was soon knocked in by Anthony Rendon. Fortunately the Mets had a three-run lead at the time so the run didn't affect the outcome of the game. Gsellman isn't one of the more reliable closers in the game, although he's gotten the job done more often than not since taking over the ninth-inning role after the trade of Jeurys Familia to the Athletics at the deadline. It would be a surprise if the Mets don't bring in a veteran closer during the offseason.
Sep 21 - 10:35 PM

Jacob deGrom gave up just one run through seven innings of work and earned a win against the Nationals on Friday.

It was yet another dominant outing for the best pitcher in baseball this year. He punched out eight batters and yielded only three base hits, all of which were singles. The only run he allowed came in on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Ryan Zimmerman in the second inning. Usually one run is all it takes for deGrom to lose a game, but the Mets finally gave him a little bit of run support and he was able to convert that into a win that evened his record at 9-9 with a superhuman 1.77 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 31 starts. He is fourth in the majors with 259 strikeouts in 209 innings.
Sep 21 - 10:29 PM

Paul Sewald pitched a scoreless 12th inning Thursday to close out a 5-4 win over the Nationals.

The Mets went to closer Robert Gsellman earlier in the game -- with a disappointing result, it should be noted -- so when the time came to save it in the 12th, it was Sewald who got the call. And it wasn't a cake walk, either, as he had to deal with Trea Turner, Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon while nursing the one-run lead. Sewald proved worthy of the challenge, getting Turner to fly out, catching Harper looking and inducing a ground out from Rendon to end it. The 28-year-old is pitching for a spot in next year's bullpen, and Thursday's result helped that cause.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's extra-innings win over the Nationals.

Bruce took Nats starter Max Scherzer deep in the third inning for the solo shot, adding an RBI single in the eighth. He's now got five homers and 14 RBI in September as he looks to close the year on a high note. Injuries have limited him to 86 games this season, and he's batting just .223/.307/.378 on the whole.
Sep 21 - 12:18 AM

Jason Vargas struck out eight while allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Thursday.

Vargas, for whatever reason, is the Nationals' daddy this year -- prior to Thursday, he threw six scoreless innings, striking out eight, in a win against the Washington club on August 24. In this one he was cruising along as well before an Anthony Rendon two-run homer ended his shutout in the sixth inning. Unlike in that start, and four of his last five, Vargas did not get a win for his efforts, as the bullpen blew the lead late to saddle him with a no-decision. The southpaw will carry a 6.25 ERA into what could be his last start of the year next week against the Braves.
