8/26/2015 | Mets tie club record with 40th HR of month

Michael Cuddyer's eighth-inning homer was the Mets' 40th of August, tying the franchise record for any month that they set in June 2006. And they still have five games left in August.

8/26/2015 | Niese, Mets seek 7th straight win, sweep of Phils

The Mets will look to continue their strong play away from Citi Field and complete a sweep of the Phillies behind Jon Niese in the final game of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia will counter with veteran right-hander Aaron Harang.

8/26/2015 | Mets' 6th straight win ups NL East lead to 6.5

For the third time this season, the Mets own a winning streak of at least half a dozen games. They grabbed their sixth straight win with a 9-4 victory over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night, extending their National League East lead to 6 1/2 games -- their largest since leading the Phillies by seven games with 17 to go in 2007 -- and putting themselves on pace for exactly 90 wins.

8/26/2015 | Matz hurls six scoreless innings at Double-A

Steven Matz may be more than a week away from coming off the disabled list, but he certainly looked ready in his latest rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton. Matz delivered six shutout, one-hit innings against Erie, striking out six and walking none.

8/26/2015 | Mets ready to put quick-pitch incident behind them

By the time batting practice began on Wednesday, Mets manager Terry Collins was ready to chat and joke around the cage with Phillies bench coach Larry Bowa, his longtime friend turned temporary antagonist. Earlier in the day, Collins quipped that Bowa needed "a little bit of time" to cool off after screaming at Hansel Robles and Daniel Murphy during an on-field altercation Tuesday.

8/25/2015 | Bowa, Phils angered by Robles' quick pitch

Tempers flared and benches emptied in the seventh inning Tuesday night in the Mets' 6-5 victory over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

8/25/2015 | Clutch Cuddyer thriving in part-time role

Michael Cuddyer was in the middle of explaining how he's always been adept at pinch-hitting, with most of the opportunities coming early in career, when he paused and started laughing.

8/25/2015 | Syndergaard shakes off HRs to halt road woes

The zero was plain to see, worrisome enough for the Mets to alter Noah Syndergaard's routine

Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon hopes to get on track for the stretch run beginning Wednesday night against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

8/25/2015 | Mets rally to give Syndergaard first road win

Noah Syndergaard earned his first road victory of the year, Travis d'Arnaud tied things on a bases-loaded walk and Michael Cuddyer gave the Mets the lead for good with a pinch-hit, two-run single in the sixth of New York's 6-5 win over Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

8/25/2015 | Stats of the Day: Mets dial up historic power

The Mets set a franchise record with eight home runs on Monday as they pummeled the Phillies, 16-7. The previous record of seven had been set on April 19, 2005, also against the Phillies.

8/25/2015 | Gilmartin picks up Mets after deGrom's blip

In his former life as a starter, a pitch count well above 50 would have meant little to Sean Gilmartin.

8/25/2015 | Did you know: Mets, Phils set amazin' records

The Mets continued their torrid offensive pace on Monday night when they took aim at a number of franchise -- and Major League -- records with a home run barrage against the Phillies.

8/24/2015 | Mets set club records with 8 HRs, 15 XBH vs. Phils

Turns out David Wright's welcome-back homer was just the beginning. Wright's solo homer in the second inning Monday sparked a franchise-record eight from the Mets in their game against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

8/24/2015 | Syndergaard hoping to take show on the road vs. Phils

Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard would love to replicate the success he had in his first and only career start against the Phillies on May 27.

8/24/2015 | Mets rout Phillies behind record 8 home runs

No deficit is too large for the new-look Mets to overcome. No offensive benchmarks are too ostentatious. David Wright homered in his first game since April and wound up being a footnote in the Mets' 16-7 win over the Phillies on Monday, which featured a franchise record eight home runs and 15 extra-base hits at Citizens Bank Park.

8/24/2015 | Parnell opts for DL over trip to Minors, DFA

Former closer Bobby Parnell did not necessarily have to go on the disabled list last week, he confirmed Monday, but considered a trip there the best of three options that the Mets presented to him.

8/24/2015 | Mets get 'favorable' report on Duda's back

A second opinion on first baseman Lucas Duda's balky balk was "favorable," according to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, and the team now expects Duda back from the disabled list as soon as he is eligible on Sept. 6.

8/24/2015 | Welcome back, Captain: Wright homers in 1st at-bat

The Mets piled out of their team bus late Sunday night and rode an elevator up to the lobby of their hotel, exhausted from their day game in Colorado and flight across the country. Then the elevator door opened and there was David Wright.

8/23/2015 | Conforto finding comfort zone with Mets

For much of July, the Mets' front office explored trades for an outfielder, not wanting to rush Michael Conforto -- a 2014 first-round Draft pick who was in college as recently as last June -- so quickly to the Majors. It was not until the end of the month that team brass finally caved, promoting Conforto directly from Double-A Binghamton. The Mets have not been able to shake him since.

8/23/2015 | Verrett fills in brilliantly for Mets, earns first MLB win

Of course Logan Verrett heard the criticisms, because there were enough to go around. Skipping Matt Harvey's rotation turn due to innings concerns was not a universally beloved strategy. ("The Mets are in a pennant race!" came the cries on talk radio.) Replacing Harvey with Verrett, who couldn't even stick as a Rule 5 Draft pick this spring, was not particularly popular, either.

8/23/2015 | Mets sweep away Rox behind Verrett's gem

Subbing for Matt Harvey, Logan Verrett held the Rockies to one run and four hits in eight innings in his first Major League start, as the National League East-leading Mets won, 5-1, at Coors Field on Sunday. By taking advantage of a memorably scattershot performance by Rockies starter David Hale, New York completed a three-game sweep and maintained a five-game lead over the Nationals.

8/23/2015 | Mets ready to welcome Wright back in Philly

David Wright, the Mets' captain, third baseman and longest-tenured player, is scheduled to come off the disabled list Monday in Philadelphia, where he will resume his goal of reaching the playoffs for just the second time in his 12-year career.

8/23/2015 | In Wright's return, Mets tab deGrom vs. Phils

The wait is over. The comeback is complete. More than four months after first landing on the disabled list, third baseman David Wright is due to rejoin the Mets for their series opener Monday in Philadelphia. Jacob deGrom gets the start opposite Phillies lefty Adam Morgan.

8/22/2015 | Mets ride big inning to another 14-9 win over Rox

On Star Wars Night at Coors Field, the National League East-leading Mets knocked Rockies starting pitcher Chris Rusin into the Twilight Zone en route to a 14-9 victory on Saturday night. New York also beat Colorado by a 14-9 score on Friday night.
