Mets Merized Online:
The legend of Mike Baxter begins to grow as he came through in the clutch for the Mets yet again on Thursday night, with his second walk-off hit in three games!
This was a low scoring affair for the Mets due to Dillon Gee dancing out of trouble in each of his first five innings on the mound tonight, without allowing a run through them. He started the sixth for the Mets and allowed two singles and hit a batter to load the bases before he was removed in favor of Brandon Lyon, who allowed a game-tying sacrifice fly.
The only run support the Mets were able to provide Gee while he was on the mound was a sacrifice fly via Marlon Byrd in the second. They would rally to score in the seventh, via a smoked RBI double by Ike Davis, but LaTroy Hawkins gave up a solo shot to Pedro Alvarez in the top of the eighth, which tied the game up…again.
But fear not, Mets fans, as Mike Baxter, heroic wings and all, drilled an RBI single off Pirates closer Jason Grilli to win the game in exciting fashion f...
BEST OF MAXIM
New York Mets outfielder Mike Baxter is having one heck of a week. For the second time in the last three days, Baxter propelled the New York Mets to a victory with a walk-off RBI single. The New York native drilled an 0-1 fastball up the middle, plating Marlon Byrd, as the Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 on Thursday night.
It was Baxter’s second walk-off hit of the season...

Matt Harvey provided nine dominating innings of work, tossing a one-hit shut out, while Mike Baxter supplied the walk-off dramatics in the tenth as the New York Mets defeated the Chicago White Sox 1-0.
New York recorded it’s second shut-out of the season and improved to 3-2 in extra-inning affairs this season.

From his key double in his first at-bat in blue and orange, to his crucial catch in Johan Santana‘s no-hitter, to last night’s tenth inning walk-off knock against the White Sox, Mike Baxter has already found his place in Mets history and into the hearts of the Flushing Faithful. For Baxter however, he is always looking to improve and perform to the best of his ability.
While Ike Davis grabs all of the attention for duplicating his rough start from a season ago, almost no attention is being given to David Wright once again getting off to a terrific start. Unlike last year at this time, the Mets are under .500 and all of the buzz centers around Matt Harvey and John Buck. However, Wright deserves praise for getting out of the gate quick.

The Mets held the White Sox to one hit over 10 innings last night. It was the second 10-inning one-hitter in team history. Terry Leach hurled a 10-inning one hitter on October 1, 1982 at Philadelphia in a game the Mets won, 1-0. Luis Aguayo had a fifth-inning triple in that game. The last 10-inning one-hitter in the majors was May 28, 2011 when the...
