Mets 4, White Sox 2 (7/31/19)

The Mets didn’t make any noise the day of the trade deadline. Instead they saved their bullets for the game Wednesday night, scoring three runs in the ninth inning to earn a 4-2 win over the White Sox. It was the Mets’ sixth-consecutive win. The club is now 12-5 since the All-Star break and have closed to three games of .500 at 52-55. After 107 games a year ago, the Mets were 44-63.

Jacob deGrom had another outstanding game, as he allowed just 1 ER in 7 IP with 11 Ks. But it was another no-decision for deGrom, as the Mets waited until after he was gone to put up a crooked number on the board.

Michael Conforto reached base three times and had a run and two RBIs. Todd Frazier had two hits, a run and an RBI.

Justin Wilson vultured the win and Edwin Diaz gave up a solo homer but struck out the side and picked up the save.

    Its just amazing with Diaz. Every single mistake gets crushed. Even when he looks relatively sharp. He has little confidence in his pitches right now. But another great and needed victory. Lets get this streak to double digits.

    Gut reaction: you can’t sneeze at 6 game winning streak but the Mets are not healthy yet. They have the antidote for their ailment: pitching, pitching and pitching. Unfortunately they still have the same doctor administering the medicine. Why is Cano still batting in the middle of the order? Is Diaz the right choice for the closer? Wilson and Lugo are pitching better. A good doctor analyzes the diagnosis and heals the patient by making difficult decisions.

    Mickey Callaway on why he hasn’t dropped Robinson Canó from the Mets’ cleanup spot despite his recent 2-for-30 stretch at the plate:

    “Not while we’re still winning, still streaking,” Callaway said. “Call me superstitious, I guess.”

    Unreal.

      LOL!!

      Cano is a good luck charm! I’ll take a 25 game win streak and suffer!

      But if it’s going to take a loss single or a bad streak? If it’s a streak, what good is that?
