The Mets held their annual Kids Holiday Party on Tuesday at Citi Field, and several players – Daniel (Santa) Murphy, Jonathon Niese and Justin Turner – as well as general manager Sandy Alderson – were in attendance.
The New York Mets lost a disapointing five-hour ballgame to the Chicago Cubs in 11 innings. Reliever Josh Stinson surrendered 4 earned runs in the 11th inning.
Jose Reyes drove in two runs, and the New York Mets made Chien-Ming Wang’s return to the big leagues a short one with a 8-5 win over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.
The sixth inning has been Dillon Gee’s undoing. The Dodgers scored five runs off the right-hander in that inning on their way to a 6-0 victory over the Mets on Thursday night that snapped a five-game losing skid.
Scott Hairston launched a bases-loaded triple and Ronny Paulino contributed four hits as part of another offensive barrage by the New York Mets, who beat the Detroit Tigers 16-9 on Wednesday night.
Jose Reyes had four hits and scored three runs, rookie Dillon Gee pitched six effective innings and the New York Mets beat the Texas Rangers 8-5 on Sunday.

Josh Thole not only killed the Mets’ ninth-inning rally on Tuesday night, but he also had a nightmarish game behind the plate. All that considered, manager Terry Collins may give Ronny Paulino a chance to contribute behind the dish.
The Mets finished the month of April with a record of 11 and 16 (.407), their worst April mark since going 9 and 14 (.391) in April of 2004.
