5/3/2015 | Lefty Torres flashes skills of an escape artist
With the bases loaded, nobody out and the Mets trailing by a run in the sixth inning, left-hander Alex Torres knew he could not afford to allow the Nationals to break the game open. New York's offense has been starved for runs recently, so Torres entered with the mindset of keeping Washington off the board completely.
5/3/2015 | Mets' offense stuck in neutral against Nats
Terry Collins did say more games like this were on the way. The man must be psychic. To be fair, Collins didn't predict a second consecutive 1-0 Mets loss to the Nationals. That would have required predicting an event that hadn't happened since 1973, the last time the Mets lost two straight 1-0 games to the same team. But he did warn the pitching would be tough and the offense tough to come by.
5/3/2015 | Fist bump: Nationals top Mets 1-0 again

5/3/2015 | Cuddyer goes above the wall to rob Zimmerman
Michael Cuddyer's leaping catch at the left-field wall in the fourth inning took a home run away from Zimmerman, who hit a towering drive off Mets starter Dillon Gee. Cuddyer backpedaled while tracking the ball to the wall before leaving his feet and reaching up. Cuddyer's glove barely sneaked over the eight-foot wall, but it was just enough to snatch the ball from leaving the yard.
5/3/2015 | Flores out of starting lineup for 2nd straight game
Mets manager Terry Collins insists he's just giving Wilmer Flores a breather. But it's turning into an extended one. Flores wasn't in the starting lineup again Sunday against the Nationals, with Ruben Tejada starting at shortstop for the second consecutive day.
5/3/2015 | Norris set to square off against Colon in series opener
For the first time since 2012, the Orioles will return to Citi Field, opening their Interleague Play this season on the road against the Mets. First-place New York will send Bartolo Colon (4-1, 3.31 ERA) to the mound opposite O's righty Bud Norris (1-2, 12.18 ERA).
5/2/2015 | Niese saddled with tough-luck loss

5/1/2015 | Harvey wins fifth straight start to begin season
Max Scherzer has followed Matt Harvey around like a big moment shadow. Scherzer entered Friday's contest second in the National League in ERA. But it was Harvey who left New York's 4-0 victory with the Major League lead in wins and the best start by a Mets pitcher since Pedro Martinez in 2006.
5/1/2015 | Mets reshuffling their infield with Herrera called up

5/1/2015 | Real Mets to reveal themselves soon
The Mets followed an 11-game winning streak with a 2-5 skid. The pendulum will swing back to the positive side probably sooner than later but not until their season reaches its 40th game -- May 19, if postponements don't interfere -- will we have a more accurate sense of what they are and where they're heading.
5/1/2015 | deGrom endures frustrating outing vs. Nats

5/1/2015 | Flores' error on double-play ball proves costly
The boos have started to come for Wilmer Flores, even when he has a bat in his hands.

But they have little to do with his hitting.
