Devin Mesoraco is an x-factor who could provide extra value to a team that’s already one of the best in the big leagues.
In a season with two extra playoff teams and a great deal of parity, virtually every franchise has hope heading into the season’s second half. That’s why you should care about Tuesday’s Midsummer Classic.
Jonathon Niese surrendered a three-run homer, but the Mets were unable to back their starter and lost 4-1 on Saturday.
David Wright lined his second double of the game, a tiebreaking drive in the eighth inning that raised his major league-leading average to .411 and sent the New York Mets past the Cincinnati Reds 9-4 Thursday.
Reds right fielder Jay Bruce missed a seventh-inning line drive after losing the ball in the lights, allowing two runs to score, and the Philadelphia Phillies took advantage of Cincinnati’s shoddy fielding to earn a 7-4 win Friday night.
The time for talking is over and the pressure is on. Everyone knows what’s at stake in October.
