Peterson, Brodey among prospect performers

Mets prospects David Peterson and Quinn Brodey were among top performers on Wednesday.


Yo's slam caps Mets' 9-run 8th, comeback win

The Mets entered the eighth inning staring at the possibility of a sweep at home at the hands of the rival Nationals, but the lineup erupted for nine runs in the eighth inning to win the finale of a three-game set. Yoenis Cespedes' grand slam capped the outburst. Ryan Zimmerman hit two homers and tripled for the Nationals.


Harvey opens 10-game road trip in Atlanta

Allowing four runs in five innings in each of his last two starts, Matt Harvey will look to improve -- and to solidify his rotation status with Jason Vargas nearing a return from the disabled list -- when he starts the Mets' series opener Thursday at 7:35 p.m. ET in Atlanta. The Braves' originally scheduled starter, Anibal Sanchez, was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a right leg injury.


Discomfort slowing Swarzak's rehab timeline

Lingering oblique discomfort has prompted Mets reliever Anthony Swarzak to pause his throwing program, also putting a trip to Florida on hold.

Key hit missing in Mets' loss to Nationals

The situation was precisely what the Mets desired: hitter's count, runners at the corners, one out in a one-run game. This was their chance to break through against the Nationals, to wash away the residue of a particularly stinging loss on Monday, to prevent one defeat from becoming something more.


Nimmo among eye-catching April performances

It's true that it's only mid-April and there's a lot of unexpected early-season numbers that won't last, because they simply can't. That doesn't mean they don't hold some interest, however. At the very least, it's interesting enough to see some names you might not have thought about carrying some massive numbers. There's five in particular that stood out to us. Which ones will last?


Matz called to close out series vs. Nats

Fresh off his first win of the season, Steven Matz will look to make it two in a row when he starts the Mets' 7:10 p.m. ET series finale against the Nationals at Citi Field. In Washington earlier this month, he held the Nats to a single unearned run in five innings.


Righty Bautista joins Mets; Robles optioned

The Mets announced on Tuesday that they have recalled flame-throwing right-hander Gerson Bautista from Double-A Binghamton, which will give manager Mickey Callaway a fresh arm for a taxed bullpen following Monday's 8-6 loss to the Nationals.

deGrom fans 12 in Mets' deepest start of 2018

Unhappy with his results despite a 3.06 ERA over his first three starts, Jacob deGrom took time following the last one to review his mechanics. Almost immediately, deGrom noticed that his arm was dropping when he swung it behind him to begin his delivery.


Mets squander deGrom gem as 'pen unravels

The Mets were never under any delusions that their bullpen, which ranked 29th in the Majors last season, would transform overnight into baseball's best. But they did see real improvement in the group that entered Monday's play sporting a 1.51 ERA, lowest in the Majors. Even if no bullpen can be that steady over a six-month season, the Mets hardly expected their statistical correction to happen in a single inning.


Wheeler follows up strong debut vs. Nats

Jay Bruce should be back in the lineup when the Mets return to Citi Field for a 7:10 p.m. ET game Tuesday against the Nationals. The game will also give Zack Wheeler a chance to prove his superb 2018 debut was no fluke. He'll start opposite Washington lefty Gio Gonzalez.


Plantar fasciitis keeps Bruce out of lineup

An old injury reemerged this weekend for Mets outfielder Jay Bruce, who was out of Monday's starting lineup due to a recurrence of plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Bruce missed time early this spring with the issue, but believed he had taken the proper steps to prevent it from sidelining him during the season.

Where it began: Jackie celebrated in NYC, beyond

Sunday marked the 71st anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier, and for the 10th straight season, players throughout the game donned Robinson's iconic No. 42. At Citi Field, steps from where fans passed through the Ebbets Field-inspired Jackie Robinson Rotunda on the way to their seats, bearers of '42' included Brewers left-hander Brent Suter, who grew up a white kid in suburban Cincinnati but said he participated proudly because, "he wasn't just an impetus for change for baseball, but society as a whole."


Watch Syndergaard strike out 8 straight batters

Sometimes it just didn't seem fair.


Wilmer walks Mets off with HR vs. Crew

Noah Syndergaard's strikeouts were the early story for the Mets on Sunday at Citi Field, but it was Wilmer Flores' ninth-inning home run that gave them a 3-2 walk-off win over the Brewers. Flores connected off Matt Albers to give the Mets their 10th win in the last 11 games and their first walk-off win of the season. The Mets bounced back after having their nine-game winning streak stopped by the Brewers on Saturday night, and won their fifth straight series to start the season.


Thor fans 8 straight Brewers en route to 11

Noah Syndergaard, who has a history of success against the Brewers, recorded nine strikeouts through four innings on Sunday, and 11 total. Even more impressively, he struck out eight straight, two shy of tying Tom Seaver's record for the most consecutive strikeouts by a single pitcher.


Thor strings together 8 straight K's vs. Crew

Noah Syndergaard, who has a history of success against the Brewers, recorded nine strikeouts through four innings on Sunday. Even more impressively, he struck out eight straight, two shy of tying Tom Seaver's record for the most consecutive strikeouts by a single pitcher.


Jackie's legacy personal for daughter Sharon

Sunday marked the 71st anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier, and for the 10th straight season, players throughout the game donned Robinson's iconic No. 42. At Citi Field, steps from where fans passed through the Ebbets Field-inspired Jackie Robinson Rotunda on the way to their seats, bearers of '42' included Brewers left-hander Brent Suter, who grew up a white kid in suburban Cincinnati but said he participated proudly because, "he wasn't just an impetus for change for baseball, but society as a whole."


deGrom starts opener vs. rival Nats

After sweeping the Nationals in Washington last week, the Mets prepare for their first visit of the season from their National League East rivals. Right-hander Jacob deGrom (2-0, 3.06 ERA) starts Monday's 7:10 p.m. ET game, opposing Gio Gonzalez. The Mets lost eight of 10 to the Nationals at Citi Field in 2017.


Mets' bats kept in check, win streak ends at 9

After more than a week of nothing but comebacks, clutch pitching and wins, the Mets didn't have any of that and fell to the Brewers 5-1 before 40,965 at Citi Field. The defeat ended a nine-game winning streak that had propelled the Mets to a franchise-best 11-1 start. New York still has the best record in the National League.


Mets' bullpen has been exceptional this season

The Mets' rotation has produced only one performance of more than six innings this year. New York's bullpen is averaging almost four innings per game. That might sound like a recipe for a losing record, but the Mets have the best one in the National League.


Syndergaard looks to get Mets back on track

Several Mets players have done well against Milwaukee's Jhoulys Chacin and will be looking to continue the trend when they face the Brewers in a 1:10 p.m. ET game Sunday at Citi Field. Three players have more than 10 plate appearances and an OPS above .950 against the righty: Wilmer Flores (1.225), Michael Conforto (1.155) and Adrian Gonzalez (.953). The Mets start Noah Syndergaard, who is 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA in two starts against Milwaukee.

Mets (11-1) win 9th straight; Frazier hits 2 HRs

Todd Frazier bashed his first two home runs in the Mets' 6-5 win over the Brewers at Citi Field, running their winning streak to nine and their Major League-best record to 11-1.


Apple of his eye: Frazier hits first 2 HRs as Met

Plenty productive over his first two weeks with the Mets, Todd Frazier provided hits, defensive plays and even two orders of "salt and pepper" T-shirts, in homage of the Mets' new on-field celebration. But he had not contributed any of that for which he is known best: home runs.

Psychology Graduate Colloquium — Insights from specialized spiders into the study of animal cognition

An arachnologist at the U. of Canterbury in New Zealand, Fiona Cross specializes in animal cognition and studies the biology of a mosquito-eating jumping spider from East Africa that has unique, complex eyes and a capacity for spatial vision exceeding that for any other animals of similar size. Some salticids from a subfamily, Spartaeinae, are known to express an active preference for other spiders as prey (‘araneophagy’) and, using expectancy violation methods, research has shown that one of these spartaeine species, Portia africana, works with representations of different types of prey spiders. One strategy when preying on other spiders is executing pre-planned detours, and research has shown that capacity for detouring is widespread within the Spartaeinae. Moreover, new expectancy-violation experiments have shown that Portia africana represents the number of prey in a scene; P. africana becomes less inclined to complete a detour path if it encounters a different number of prey from what it had seen beforehand. This is an example of how specialized strategies for preying on a dangerous type of prey can help us gain important insights into animal cognition. Professor Cross focuses on numerosity and she has evidence that these hunting spiders can count and remember the counts of items they make. Psychology Professor Frank Grasso will moderate the colloquium.

Cespedes adds 3rd HR to early-season surge

For someone whose timing at the plate is admittedly still a bit off, Yoenis Cespedes has had no trouble leading the Mets' offense early this season.
