• Wright relied on 'subtle' leg kick to start season
  • David Wright has been using a leg kick, a high-risk, high-reward approach to hitting he started considering after consulting hitting coach Kevin Long following last year's World Series appearance.

  • Mets stay hot, beat Reds for 11th straight time
  • The Mets extended their dominance with an 11th straight win over the Reds on Wednesday, riding Neil Walker's Major League-leading ninth homer to a 5-2 win and a three-game sweep at Citi Field. The Mets have won six consecutive games, while Cincinnati has lost six of its last seven contest.

  • Harvey takes step in 'right direction' vs. Reds
  • Matt Harvey ripped his 102nd -- and last -- pitch of the night past the Reds' Jordan Pacheco at 97 mph for a called third strike, and he walked off the Citi Field mound looking just a little bit more like his old self. Harvey's seventh strikeout, a season high, capped his best performance of 2016 to date in the Mets' 5-2 win over the Reds on Wednesday.

  • Walker ties Mets record with 9th April homer
  • Neil Walker's improbable power surge continued with a record-tying home run in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Reds. His homer in the third inning made Walker the fourth Mets player to go deep nine times in April, matching Dave Kingman (1976), Carlos Delgado (2006) and John Buck (2013).

  • Matz's 'Tru32' initiative welcomes first responders
  • All his life, Steven Matz has admired firefighters. If he weren't a baseball player, he would probably be one. So when Matz's agent approached him this winter, asking what sorts of charitable endeavors he would like to undertake as a full-time member of the Mets, the FDNY clicked into his mind immediately.

  • Matz tabbed for opener vs. Peavy, Giants
  • The last time the Giants visited Citi Field in New York, rookie Chris Heston pitched a no-hitter. He'll be pitching for Triple-A Sacramento this weekend while Jake Peavy looks to hold his own in Friday's opener vs. the Mets, who will counter with left-hander Steven Matz.

  • Yoenis out for finale but confident of Friday return
  • Yoenis Cespedes may have been healthy enough to crush a game-tying, pinch-hit, three-run homer in the Mets' 4-3 win against the Reds on Tuesday, but a day later, he was still nursing a bruised right leg that kept him sidelined for most of that game. Out of the starting lineup again on Wednesday, Cespedes said he felt confident of returning for Friday's series opener against the Giants.

  • Syndergaard takes to the streets of NYC as Thor
  • The truth has been revealed.

  • Rosario among top prospect performers Tuesday
  • After he struggled in his last start for Triple-A Indianapolis, Pirates No. 1 prospect Tyler Glasnow returned to form Tuesday to fire six scoreless innings in a win against Durham.

  • Colon reaches 3,000-innings milestone
  • It wasn't his best start, but it was another start, five more frames in the books for 42-year-old Bartolo Colon, who pitched his 3,000th inning in the Major Leagues on Tuesday night at Citi Field -- a milestone marking his longevity and durability.
