Syndergaard talks performance 00:01:28
Mickey Callaway and Noah Syndergaard on Syndergaard's performance and the Wilson Ramos controversy.

Through the first three innings of Friday's game between the Mets and Dodgers, Noah Syndergaard looked to be at the top of his game, allowing just two hitters to reach base while striking out four.

But in the fourth inning, Syndergaard made a pair of mistake pitches that ultimately handed him his eighth loss of the season in the Dodgers' 9-2 victory.

With one away, Cody Bellinger walked, followed by a Corey Seager single. AJ Pollock then sharply grounded a ball up the middle, just out of the reach of Robinson Cano, scoring Bellinger and tying the game.

Then came the big blow. On a 3-2 pitch, Syndergaard left a curveball up in the zone, and Gavin Lux didn't miss it, crushing a three-run shot to center field that hit just about the orange line, giving the Dodgers a 4-1 lead.

After Game 1 of last year's division series loss to Boston, Aaron Boone had some cleaning up to do with his starting pitcher.

J.A. Happ, who had been removed with no outs in the third inning, was in Boone's office, and he was angry. He felt he should have had the chance to turn his performance around and save the bullpen.

But as Happ sat in a chair in the tiny room at Fenway, Boone and pitching coach Larry Rothschild calmly explained their rationale: They had a strong relief corps, were unwilling to let the game get away from them, and preferred other matchups in that inning. Happ left the office satisfied, and appreciative of the open exchange.

Standing next to Noah Syndergaard on Tuesday afternoon, you noticed his downcast eyes and slow, careful tone. He was trying to parse questions about his relationship with the Mets organization and he just looked...exhausted.

Come to think of it, we're all fairly beaten down by now by the trickle of news about unpleasant moments between the team and a player who was once its most marketable star.

Syndergaard on Wilson Ramos 00:01:29
New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard explains the leaked conversation he had with the front office and his relationship with Wilson Ramos

A day after a New York Post story came out regarding Noah Syndergaard's desire to not pitch to Wilson Ramos and a "livid" confrontation he had with his bosses over it, Syndergaard addressed the situation. 

"First and foremost, the whole idea that we had a livid (discussion) or I was livid with the conversation was completely false," Syndergaard said outside the Mets' clubhouse before Tuesday night's game. "We had a very cordial and adult conversation. As far as Wilson, I have nothing but respect for the guy. It doesn't change our relationship between one another. He busts his ass every day."

Syndergaard said it was "unfortunate" his meetings with team brass leaked out and that he was just having "open dialogue with the front office and coaching staff" to try to get to the bottom of "the extreme splits" that have impacted him when Ramos catches him instead of Tomas Nido

Noah controversy 00:02:24
Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen comments on meeting with Noah Syndergaard about him not wanting Wilson Ramos to catch him

The storyline prior to the Mets' game Monday night against Arizona was the report Noah Syndergaard expressing his displeasure with throwing to Wilson Ramos. Manager Mickey Callaway addressed the situation prior to the game, and as first pitch approached, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen weighed in, as well.

"Noah has expressed his issues with his comfortability with throwing to Wilson," Van Wagenen said. "I respect him for sharing those feelings. We listened to him. He understands our thought process that we might have him throwing to other catchers throughout the course of the season. We'll continue to evaluate that on a day-by-day basis and do what gives us the best chance to win." 

"Every game counts right now."

Callaway on Noah Syndergaard 00:01:35
Steve Gelbs talked to Mickey Callaway about the report that Noah Syndergaard was heated over Wilson Ramos catching him.

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard met with team brass to voice his frustrations of having to pitch to C Wilson Ramos yet again this weekend, sources confirmed to SNY's Andy Martino. The Post was the first to report the meeting.

Syndergaard has not confirmed or commented on the news, but manager Mickey Callaway didn't deny it when asked by SNY's Steve Gelbs before Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. 

"You know what, Noah understands that I'm going to make the lineup out," Callaway said. "And he's going to go out there and compete for the team. He understands that we're trying to do something special here and get to the playoffs, and that everything else is separated from that. So we're going to continue putting the best players on the field at all times, and everyone of our players in there is going to compete to the best of their ability and only worry about the team. That's all you can do and I think Noah does a great job of that."

Mets fall to Phillies 00:01:21
The Mets longest 9-inning game in club history ended in a 10-7 loss to the Phillies on Sunday afternoon

The Mets pitching staff gave up three home runs in their 10-7 loss to the Phillies on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field. >> Box score

Five Takeaways from Sunday's game

1) Noah Syndergaard didn't have his best day on the mound, allowing four earned runs on six hits in 5.0 innings of work. The righty struck out five and walked just one batter. He did allow a solo home run to Adam Haseley in the top of the fourth inning with two outs, which cut the Mets lead to 3-2. Then in the top of the fifth inning, Corey Dickerson hit a two-run double off of Syndergaard to give the Phillies their first lead of the day.

Mets talk resiliency after win 00:01:40
After Pete Alonso walked off in the ninth, the Mets had a clear message of resiliency and the clear sense of the urgency to win.

The Mets walked off with a 5-4 win over the Phillies on Friday, but perhaps the biggest storyline from the game was the latest entry into Edwin Diaz's disastrous first season in New York.

With the game tied in the bottom of the eighth, the Mets rallied to put two runs on the board. The first came on an RBI single by Pete Alonso, giving the Mets a one-run lead. Wilson Ramos then followed up with an RBI single of his own, making it a 4-2 game.

With a two-run lead, Mickey Callaway elected to turn the ball over to Edwin Diaz in a high-leverage situation.

The Mets blew a two-run lead in the ninth, but they managed to walk off with a 5-4 win over the Phillies on Friday. >> Box score

Six Takeaways from Friday's game

1) With a 4-2 lead in the ninth, Mickey Callaway elected to go with Edwin Diaz. After striking out Logan Morrison, Diaz allowed a single to Jean Segura, and then the big blow, a two-run home run by JT Realmuto on a hanging slider. Diaz's nightmare of a first season with the Mets continued on Friday night, as he allowed two more earned runs, pushing his season ERA to 5.88 and recording his seventh blown save. Diaz has now allowed 14 ninth-inning home runs this season, tying Francisco Rodriguez (2014 Brewers) for the most in MLB history, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

2) In the bottom of the ninth inning, the Mets rallied to load the bases with two outs, setting the stage once again for Pete Alonso. With a 3-2 count, Alonso laid off of a high breaking ball from Nick Vincent, forcing in the winning run on a walk-off walk.

3) In the bottom of the third inning, Todd Frazier led off with a looping single up the middle, just out of the reach of Cesar Hernandez. It was the 1,000th hit of Frazier's big-league career. Frazier moved to second on a Steven Matz sacrifice bunt and came around to score on a Jeff McNeil RBI single, putting the Mets up 1-0.

The Mets come home on the heels of their six-game road trip last Friday through Wednesday, in which they went 4-2 with series wins over the Phillies and Washington Nationals. Last time out, the Mets answered after an 11-10 walk-off loss Tuesday with a 4-1 rebound victory Wednesday. After they took both of the three-game sets, the Mets have won 12 of their last 16 series since the All-Star break, going 31-18 dating back to July 12.

The Mets entered the bottom of the ninth inning up six runs but fell apart, surrendering seven runs -- including a walk-off three-run home run -- as the Nationals stunned New York, 11-10, Tuesday at Nationals Park in Washington. >> Box Score

Four takeaways from Monday's game

1) The Mets' biggest weakest reared its ugly head at the worst-possible time. With a 10-4 cushion in the bottom of the ninth inning, RHP Paul Sewald ran into trouble, allowing four runs on four hits while getting only one out as the Nationals crept back. After LHP Luis Avilan allowed a hit and RHP Edwin Diaz entered with three runners on. With one out, Diaz left a pitch over the plate and C Kurt Suzuki did the damage, pulling a three-run home run to left field and walking the Nationals off against the Mets for the seven-run comeback.

Mets Notes

The Mets face the Nationals with both teams sending their aces to the mound, the third time all season. The previous matchups featured wins for the Mets, who came out on top March 28 and May 22. While the pitching matchup brings the buzz, the Mets are also riding the momentum of C Wilson Ramos, whose career-high hitting streak enters the night at 25 games -- the longest active hitting streak in the MLB. Should Ramos extend his streak to 26 games, he would tie former 3B David Wright, who did so from Sept. 17, 2006, to April 19, 2007. On another streak, 1B Pete Alonso has reached base safely in 28 straight games since Aug. 2 and tied a Mets rookie record as a result after Justin Turner did so in 2011. Alonso's is the longest active streak in baseball. While the Mets activated Robinson Cano off the 10-day IL before the game, 2B Joe Panik gets the start.

Danny Abriano, SNY.tv | Twitter |

With his lightning-quick recovery from a torn hamstring surprising even the Mets' training staff, Robinson Cano is on track to rejoin the team after a rehab stint with Short-Season Brooklyn -- with that return potentially imminent.

Cano had been heating up before his injury, with 10 hits in 19 at-bats, including four doubles and a home run. But while he is expected to return, it isn't yet known if he's healthy enough to play in a starting capacity. 

If Cano is ready to be more than a bench player upon his return, it's safe to say two things:

Mets Notes

The Mets beat the Phillies 6-3 on Saturday, thanks to a strong outing from Steven Matz, who improved to 9-8 with the win. He allowed just two earned runs on seven hits with six strikeouts in 5.0 innings. Wilson Ramos went 4-for-5 from the plate, and extended his MLB-best active hitting streak to 24 games. Todd Frazier went 3-for-4 with two RBI, while Joe Panik also had two RBI after going 1-for-5.

Five takeaways from Friday's game

1)  LHP Steven Matz (9-8) was solid again for the Mets, scattering three runs (two earned) on seven hits with six strikeouts to one walk in 5.0 innings. Phillies RF Bryce Harper drove in two runs on a first-inning fielder's choice and sixth-inning solo home run, and Matz walked the bases loaded before walking PH Andrew Knapp later in the sixth, but he recorded his latest quality start and gave the Mets a chance to win. Matz outlasted former teammate and Phillies LHP Jason Vargas (6-7), whom the Mets knocked out in the top of the fourth inning. Vargas allowed five runs on nine hits, striking out two and walking three.

Jason Vargas' first start against his former team didn't go the way he would have hoped. 

Facing the Mets for the first time since the team traded him to the Phillies in late July, the left-hander was hit hard. Vargas allowed one run in the first, another in the third, and then things came unglued in the fifth.

After Wilson Ramos and Michael Conforto (who each drove in a run earlier in the game), got on base to lead off the fifth, Todd Frazier lined a double down the left-field line, scoring Ramos and moving Conforto to third. Joe Panik then followed with a double of his own, this time scoring two and putting the Mets up 5-1.

Mets talk big win in Philly 00:01:22
New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway, pitcher Zack Wheeler and shortstop Amed Rosario talk offensive night against Phillies.

The Mets were in a tough spot on Friday night, entering a game against Phillies ace Aaron Nola on the road, losers of six straight games.

And while Nola dazzled for most of the night, Mets' starter Zack Wheeler went toe-to-toe with him, keeping the Mets in the game and allowing the bats to do the talking late in the Mets' 11-5 win.

Down 1-0 in the seventh inning, the Mets turned to Wilson Ramos off the bench, who delivered in a huge spot with an RBI single to tie the game and extend his hitting streak to 23 games.

Then, with the game still tied in the eighth, the Mets opened the floodgates. A two-run single by Amed Rosario got things started, and two home runs from Todd Frazier and another from Michael Conforto helped push the Mets' lead to 11-1.

Then in the ninth, Michael Conforto blasted a two-run shot to right field, giving the Mets an 8-1 lead. After getting a couple of more runners on base, Frazier slammed his second three-run shot in as many innings, making it 10 runs for the Mets in the final two innings.

Mets Notes

The Mets are hoping to avoid a seven-game losing streak against the Phillies, which would tie their longest losing streak of the season which occurred from June 23-29. That first streak included a losses to both the Phillies and Chicago Cubs, who the Mets lost to on Thursday. ... Wilson Ramos continued his hit streak on Thursday, which has reached a major league leading 22 games. ... In his last 23 games, relief man Justin Wilson has a 0.95 ERA with eight walks and 21 strikeouts. ...

Callaway talks 6-game skid 00:01:09
New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway breaks down the Mets 6-game losing streak and the belief the team can bounce back down the stretch.

After the Mets' 4-1 loss at the hands of the Chicago Cubs on Friday night, a series sweep that brought New York's skid to six games, manager Mickey Callaway put the latest result into perspective.

"Things have snowballed," Callaway said. "That's six in a row. That's a big snowball. We've got to start tomorrow, get a win and start the snowball in the opposite direction."

The latest defeat for the Mets (67-66, 13.0 GB in NL East, 5.0 GB for second Wild Card) marked the first time since they were swept in consecutive series since their May 31-June 6 stretch last season.

Cubs sweep Mets 00:01:07
New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom was taken deep twice by Cubs first baseman Victor Caratini who accounted for all of the Cubs runs.

The Mets did not have an answer for Victor Caratini, whose two home runs were the difference in a 4-1 loss to the Cubs on Thursday night at Citi Field.  >> Box score

Five takeaways from Thursday's game

1) Jacob deGrom was brilliant against the entire Cubs lineup, save for Caratini. He retired 15 batters in a row after allowing a home run to Caratini in the second inning and did not pitch from the stretch until an infield hit by Kris Bryant in the seventh inning. But later in the seventh, Caratini came up once again with runners on first and second and kept deGrom's slider inside the right-field foul pole to give the Cubs a 4-1 lead that they did not relinquish.

Before Thursday night's series finale between the Mets and Chicago Cubs, a pair of positive injury updates came New York's way.

In the afternoon, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reported that Mets Tomas Nido and Dominic Smith were set to resume baseball activities.

During last Friday's 2-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves, Nido suffered a concussion after a backswing from 3B Josh Donaldson, landing the Mets' catcher on the seven-day injured list.

The Mets (67-65, 12.5 GB in NL East, 4.0 GB for second Wild Card) try to stop their five-game losing streak and series sweep when they face the Cubs (71-61, 2.0 GB in NL Central, 2.0 GA for second Wild Card) Thursday night at 7:10 p.m. at Citi Field on SNY. 

Mets Notes

The Mets have lost four straight games at home for the first time all year and the first time overall since their seven-game skid June 23-29. Despite the losing streak, the Mets have won 14 of their last 19 home games. The Mets are 5-5 in their last 10 games and 21-9 in their last 30 games. As of late, the bullpen is improved -- Mets relievers have combined for a 2.33 ERA with 10 earned runs over 38.2 innings, striking out 51 while walking 26 and allowing 26 hits -- most recently with Wednesday's 6.0 shutout frames against the Cubs. At the plate, Wilson Ramos continues to ride a career-best hitting streak of 21 games -- the longest active streak in baseball -- hitting three home runs and 15 RBI while slashing .425/.452/.575 during the stretch since Aug. 3's 7-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. On the season, the catcher has 13 home runs, 64 RBI and a slash line of .290/.354/.417.

Five takeaways from Wednesday's game

1) Noah Syndergaard had perhaps the worst outing of his Major League career on Wednesday night, allowing a career-high 10 runs (nine earned) on nine hits in just three innings. Syndergaard allowed three home runs in a start for the first time in his career, allowing long balls to Ian Happ, Kyle Schwarber, and Nick Castellanos. On a night where the Mets needed Syndergaard at his best, he exited with the team trailing 10-1.

Cubs beat Mets 5-2 00:01:37
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso made Mets history with his 42nd HR of the season but it wasn't enough to beat the Cubs.

The Mets couldn't make the most of Pete Alonso's record-setting night, falling to Cubs 5-2 on Tuesday night. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Tuesday's game

1)  In the bottom of the fourth inning, Pete Alonso hit his 42nd home run of the season. With that home run, Alonso set the Mets single-season record... passing Carlos Beltran and Todd Hundley. Beltran hit 41 home runs in 2006, while Hundley hit 41 home runs during the 1996 season. With that home run, Alonso got his 101st RBI of the season... the Mets single season RBI record is 124, set by Mike Piazza in 1999 and tied by David Wright in 2008.

The Mets (67-63, 11.5 GB in NL East, 2.0 GB for second Wild Card) start a very important three-game series with the Chicago Cubs (69-61, 3.0 GB in the NL Central, 1.0 GA for second Wild Card) on Tuesday night at 7:10 p.m. at Citi Field on SNY. 

Mets Notes

The Mets look to get back on track, after losing three straight at home for the first time since July 3-5. The team has still won 13 of its last 17 home games and own the best second-half winning percentage in the majors at .675 (27-13). Wilson Ramos will try to continue his 19-game hitting streak, which is the longest active streak in the MLB. Todd Frazier will bat 8th in the lineup tonight, as Juan Lagares will be on the bench. Shortstop Amed Rosaio is second in the NL with a .348 batting average since the All-Star break, while J.D. Davis is seventh in the NL with a .345 average since the break as well.

The Mets' weekend sweep at the hands of the Braves was not the fault of any one player. It was a series filled with missed opportunities, very poor situational execution and awareness, and some questionable moves coming from the dugout.

But the Mets emerged from their weekend nightmare in basically the same spot they were in playoff-wise before Friday night's game started. That is a huge break for a team that opens an enormous three-game series against the Cubs on Tuesday night at Citi Field.

And with luck still on the Mets' side, they need to do everything they can to put themselves in the best position to win. That's where Todd Frazier comes in...

Mets drop 2nd straight game 00:01:26
Pete Alonso tied a club record with his 41st HR but it wasn't enough as the Braves took advantage of every Mets mistake and prevailed, 8-5

Pete Alonso ties another team record, but the Braves still top the Mets 9-5. >> Box score

Five takeaways from Saturday's game

1) Zack Wheeler worked his way through six innings of modest work. Wheeler allowed four earned runs on five hits with three strikeouts. The Braves capitalized on Wheeler with the long ball, as Ozzie Albies and Josh Donaldson homered in the third inning, and free bases, as Wheeler walked four.

Despite Friday's 14-inning game, the Mets still used four relievers on Saturday. Luis Avilan escaped with a strikeout and clean seventh inning, but the Braves added two insurance runs against Brad Brach in the eighth and then Edwin Diaz allowed two more in the ninth. Diaz also left the game with an injury and Chris Flexen came in to record the final two outs.

The Mets (67-60, 9.0 GB in NL East, 1.5 GB for second Wild Card) start up their three-game series against the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves (77-52, 6.0 GA in NL East) at Citi Field on Friday night at 7:10 p.m.

Mets Notes

The Mets finished off their sweep of the Cleveland Indians, beating them 2-0 on Thursday night. Noah Syndergaard was spectacular on the mound, throwing just 73 pitches through 6.0 innings. He had a perfect game going on until Tyler Naquin singled to center field with one out in the top of the sixth inning. Then the rain came down, as the game was delayed in the bottom of the sixth inning. Wilson Ramos extended his hitting streak to 16-games, it's the longest active streak in the MLB. He delivered a two-run double in the bottom of the fourth inning, as Joe Panik and Michael Conforto scored the only runs of the game. The Mets have outscored their opponents 114-73 so far in the month of August, and rank third in the majors with a .292 batting average this month.

Jacob deGrom and the Mets start a huge three-game series against the Braves at Citi Field on Friday night.

It's nice to have the best pitcher in baseball taking the mound the day after completing a sweep of the Indians, who are just a half game back of the second American League Wild Card, isn't it?

The Mets have been hot, but so has Atlanta. Exactly like the Mets, the Braves have won 11 of their past 15 games. Unfortunately, two of those 11 wins came at New York's expense when the two teams met in Atlanta last week.

The Mets' pitching staff led by Noah Syndergaard worked its way through rain delays to help bring home sweep of Indians in a 2-0 win.. >> Box score 

Five takeaways from Thursday's game

1) Noah Syndergaard had his start cut short thanks to an extensive rain delay, about an hour. Syndergaard's night ended at 73 pitches as he unsurprisingly did not come back out to the mound when play resumed at 11:10 p.m. Still, it was a productive outing for Syndergaard in the win. Over six innings, the righty allowed only two hits and shutdown the first 15 batters he faced. Syndergaard struck out five, including the first two batters he faced in the game to set the tone early.

With the Mets in the heat of the playoff chase, they have kept their heads above water despite being without some key offensive pieces lately. That looks like it's about to change.

As key players start to return, the Mets will have to clear room on the 25-man roster for each and map out a plan of attack regarding who plays regularly and what the lineup should be (and whether the lineup should be static or malleable).

This is a good problem to have, but there are some tough decisions coming.

The Mets are entering the second game of a nine-game homestand against the Indians, Braves, and Cubs that could go a long way toward determining their fate when it comes to playing in October.

Here are five storylines to keep an eye on...

Will this homestand help or hurt?

At the end of the homestand, the Mets hit the road for six games against the Phillies and Nationals, both of whom are competing with New York for the NL Wild Card. This is all the more reason why it's important for the Mets to take advantage while they're home.

1) Zack Wheeler looked to be cruising in his start today, but he hit a wall in the fifth inning when he allowed three runs to reliniquish the Mets' lead. His day would be done after that frame, with his final line being four runs, three earned on four hits while walking one and striking out two. He would get a no-decision thanks to the Mets' offense.

1) Jacob deGrom had another strong outing for the Mets, allowing only three hits in seven innings of work.

His final throw was his 107th pitch of the night. With the win, deGrom is now 8-7 on the year, the first time his record went above .500 since April 9 when he was 2-1 following his third start of the season.
