“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.”
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.
Garrett Jones hit a three-run homer – a call that was correctly overturned by baseball’s beleaguered umpires – and Wandy Rodriguez pitched the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 7-3 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night.
Make it six losses in a row. And more abject futility. It’s enough to drive manager Terry Collins crazy.
The Mets are starting to slide. The losing streak is now at three.
X-rays were negative and Niese left with a bruise. The Mets said he was day to day. “We’ll see how it feels tomorrow,” Niese said. “But I should be able to throw a bullpen and make my next start.”

“He’s just kind of in a bit of shock,” Wright said. “I don’t think anyone was expecting this. For everyone, it’s kind of shocking. It’s disheartening.”
The Mets made the first of what might be several minor moves to free up 40-man roster space by trading righty reliever Elvin Ramirez to the Angels for cash on Wednesday night.
When the hard comebacker off the bat of Carlos Beltran (of course it was him) smashed off the right elbow of Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner on Tuesday afternoon, you just had to laugh — to keep from crying.
They’ll just have to wait for Santana and hope that the brilliant future that awaits Harvey is now. Santana won’t pitch in a game until he can throw a ball 180 feet. So far, he’s only halfway there.
