• Colon, Cuddyer help Mets to 6th straight win
  • Bartolo Colon once again baffled and amazed both on the mound and at the plate, Michael Cuddyer drove in the go-ahead run and the Mets overcame an early Giancarlo Stanton homer to win their sixth straight game, 4-1, over the Marlins.

  • Cuddyer helping fill gap with captain Wright out
  • The Mets have won six in a row for the first time in four years, and the play of Michael Cuddyer recently is a large reason.

  • Colon produces unlikely tying run while tossing seven
  • With the Mets down just one run in the fifth inning,Terry Collins opted to let Bartolo Colon hit for himself -- the pitcher who went nine years between RBIs before managing one in his last start April 12, the pitcher with just 13 hits in 18 big league seasons, the pitcher, who at age 41, seemingly never stops surprising.

  • Lagares displays Gold Glove skills vs. Marlins
  • Minutes before the start of Friday's 4-1 win over the Marlins, Mets center fielder Juan Lagares stepped onto the field to accept his 2014 Rawlings Gold Glove award, grinning as he hoisted it up with both hands. Then Lagares set about showcasing the skills that helped him earn it.

  • Mets send deGrom to mound for Game 3 vs. Marlins
  • The third of the four-game series between the Mets and Marlins at Citi Field will feature two pitchers off to starkly different starts. The Mets start Jacob deGrom, who is coming off his first win and owns a 1.46 ERA. Marlins starter Mat Latos has lasted a combined 4 2/3 innings in his first two starts with his new team.

  • Mets call up Muno, option Montero to Triple-A
  • After playing their first 10 games with a short bench and an eight-man bullpen, the Mets made a move Friday to better even out their roster. The club recalled infielder Danny Muno from Triple-A Las Vegas prior to its game against the Marlins and optioned right-hander Rafael Montero to Vegas.

  • Mets plan to call Montero back up soon
  • When the Mets optioned Rafael Montero to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, it was not exactly a demotion. Although Montero will spend the next 10 days as a Minor League pitcher, the Mets plan to call him back up for a big league start on April 28.

  • Duda's three-hit night helps Mets win without Wright
  • If Lucas Duda can start hitting lefties consistently, as he did Thursday with the go-ahead RBI in the Mets' 7-5 win over the Marlins, willing them to their fifth straight victory for the first time in two years, there is no telling how high steep his career arc may rise.

  • Granderson gets Mets out of jam with impressive catch
  • The Mets took the first of a four-game series with the Marlins, 7-5, on Thursday by a margin of two runs and just a few inches. Just a few inches closer down the barrel, and maybe J.T. Realmuto's bases-loaded fly ball off Rafael Montero in the sixth carries a few inches farther over Citi Field's right-field wall. Just a few inches shorter, and maybe Curtis Granderson doesn't stretch the final few inches necessary to snag Realmuto's drive before smashing into that wall.

  • Mets starting to form 2015 identity
  • New York Mets pitchers want their opponents to know the outside of the plate will not be shared. Or as Bob Gibson once noted, "The inside half can be yours. The outside half belongs to me."
