Rookie Shelby Miller followed up his nearly perfect one-hitter with 5 2-3 scoreless innings and the Cardinals scored the go-ahead run in the seventh on a wild pitch in a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets on Wednesday night.
“I respect the fans immensely,” Collins said. “I tell everybody that it’s about the fans. I don’t care who you’re a fan of. If you’re a baseball fan, you’re a fan, and certainly I meant no harm, no disrespect to them.”
“I don’t know what to say,” Gee said. “I didn’t feel all that bad tonight. I’m a ground-ball guy and I think seven ground balls got through. I don’t know what else to do.”
Locally, the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez (out until after the All-Star break) came in at No. 9 and the Mets’ Johan Santana (out for the season) came in at No. 13. Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (out until after the All-Star break) is No. 19.
Here’s a look at the very best of the Boston-New York rivalries in football, basketball, baseball and hockey. Enjoy the history lesson.
Collins has heard Mets fans’ reaction to this past weekend’s Jordany Valdespin drama — and he doesn’t care: “They don’t play this game. They have no idea what goes on.”
Wheeler’s fast-track to the majors may have just hit a speed bump.
Unless he’s completely lost it, he could provide a potential boost to an outfield that simply has provided zippo.
Carlos Beltran drove in four runs and rookie left-hander John Gast picked up a win in his major league debut, helping the St. Louis Cardinals cruise past the New York Mets 10-4 on Tuesday night.
Matt Harvey is really, really good. We’re talking cover-of-Sports-Illustrated good.
Valdespin knew that there was a very good chance that he would get hit. And in an effort to avoid getting plunked, the 25-year-old told manager Terry Collins — through trainer Ray Ramirez — that he was unavailable to hit, a source told the New York Daily News.
Lance Lynn overcame early control woes and St. Louis used a three-run seventh inning to beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Monday night.
“The Mets, when (starting pitcher Matt Harvey) doesn’t pitch now, are so bad that it is embarrassing,” Francesa said. “They are so listless. They are so unwatchable. This is as bad as I have ever seen it. This is Craig Swan bad for these Mets.”
The New York Mets signed outfielder Rick Ankiel and started him in center field against the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. Ankiel was designated for assignment by the Houston Astros last week and cleared waivers on Sunday.
The Mets have dropped to a season-low six games under .500 after going 2-4 on their six-game homestand. The Mets’ 1-0, 10-inning win last Tuesday night against the White Sox was the second extra-inning, one-hitter in Mets history.
