Atlanta Braves vs New York Mets Kris Medlen (6-9, 3.64) vs. Carlos Torres (0-1, 0.79) Starting Lineup Eric Young, Jr. – LF Daniel Murphy – 2B David Wright – 3B Marlon Byrd – RF Ike Davis – 1B John Buck – C Juan Lagares – CF Omar Quintanilla – SS Carlos Torres – RHP Game Notes RHP Dillon Gee flirted with history on Monday night, when he carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Braves but ended up with a no-decision in the Mets’ 2-1 loss to the Braves. Gee opened with six no-hit innings before surrendering a single to Freddie Freeman leading off the seventh. The Braves loaded the bases in the seventh against Gee, who got out of the jam by retiring Chris Johnson on a fielder’s choice grounder to third and by striking out pinch-hitter Joey Terdoslavich. Gee allowed two hits and three walks while striking out three over the seven scoreless innings and was in line for the win until Bobby Parnell allowed two runs in the ninth. The outing continued perhaps the best run Ge...

Torres Has Earned His Spot In The Rotation

When we signed journey-man Carlos Torres to a deal in the off-season, I was somewhere between disappointment and apathy, honestly. I thought that he would serve no purpose on this team and that he was wasting space in a Triple-A rotation. I made comments akin to, “This is exactly the reason no other Triple-A affiliate wants to take the field for the Mets.” And yes, as he struggled...

What exactly is Carlos Torres’ off-speed pitch?

That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet And that’s how Shakespeare ties into Carlos Torres. It’s time to take a look at Torres and his nasty off-speed pitch, which seems to me to be a slider. But if you go to his FanGraphs page, it shows him throwing four pitches – fastball, cutter, curve and change. Not a slider in sight, or so it would seem. ...

Torres Solid Again As Mets Bounce Back With 4-1 Win Over Braves

The New York Mets came back from a heartbreaking loss on Monday to beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 and even up the series at a game apiece tonight at Citi Field. Carlos Torres was impressive again in his second start for the Mets. After being greeted by a home run from Andrelton Simmons to leadoff the game, Torres settled into a groove and weaved in and out of trouble as he held the...

Mets rally to beat Braves, 4-1, back strong effort from Carlos Torres

Mets manager Terry Collins offered one specific piece of advice to his starting pitcher Carlos Torres minutes before he took the mound opposite the Braves Tuesday night: keep the ball away from Andrelton Simmons. Torres could not. Simmons, the Braves’ leadoff hitter, whacked Torres’s second pitch, an 87 mph changeup over the heart of the plate, for a home run over the left-field...

Mets Troll Yankees On Twitter, Hilarity Ensues

The New York Mets are playing some pretty good baseball of late. Matt Harvey is the best thing since sliced bread, Juan Lagares was just named NL Player of the Week, and they are now within 10 games of the division leading Atlanta Braves. So the Mets are feeling pretty good about themselves. Good enough to poke fun at their crosstown rivals with a subtle poke at the injury-riddled...

Carlos In And Out Of Danger

Although it didn't start down the path of righteousness, Carlos Torres turned in a solid performance giving up only one run in six innings and getting the win last night over the Braves. He gave up a home run to the first batter of the game, and then left runners on in all but one of his six innings, but with the help of Juan Lagares cutting a runner down at the plate, he gut...

Is This Recent Success Sustainable?

The Mets keep rolling.  Having won 19 of their last 31, sporting a win percentage of .612 over that stretch, the Mets didn’t cool off after the All-Star break.  Taking the series against the Phillies, even after a crushing first game loss, and splitting the series so far at one game a piece with the division leading Braves, the Mets are continuing to climb their way back to...

You Mad, Bro? “A Win On Star Wars Night”

From SB Nation’s “Talking Chop” Blog:   “I’m predicting a hot streak after the ending to last night.” “Is that a stray dog barking? Jesus Miami…” “It’s DMX” “Barking hot dog vendor apparently” “Interesting dilemma. Risk being thrown out at the plate or risk being stranded by uggla.” “I blame Gattis. He placed the ball on the wrong side of the...
