The Mets' pitching staff had an up-and-down week. When things went well, they went very well, as the team allowed just five runs in total in the three games it won. Unfortunately, it gave up twenty-one runs in the three games it lost.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Vic Black, RHP Black threw 1.2 scoreless with a strikeout and a walk. He’s been effective despite generally high walk rates this year.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP With 3.1 scoreless innings, 4 strikeouts, and no walks this week, Carlyle was again impressive. The guy has a 0.87 ERA and 1.88 FIP in 10.1 major league innings this year.
Bartolo Colon, P Colon was very good against the Phillies and very bad against the Giants this week.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning and wound up allowing just two runs in 7.1 innings with 7 strikeouts and one walk. He’s been fantastic.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin only threw an inning in total over three appearances, but he served up the Chase Utley grand slam on Tuesday night.
Dana Eveland, LHP Eveland made three appearances totaling two innings but gave up one run in that time.

Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP On the shelf with an elbow injury, Matsuzaka might not be back in the near future.
