MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets finished up their series with the Marlins with another heartbreaker of a loss. They were no-hit for seven innings, but Asdrubal Cabrera managed to tie the game with a single in the ninth. The elation of the comeback would not last long because Addison Reed gave up a pinch-hit, walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth to J.T. Riddle.

Mercifully, the Mets leave Miami to take on the Phillies on Tuesday.

Matt Harvey was one of the few positives that came out of Sunday’s game as he continues to progress with every start.

Despite three tough losses in a row, nobody on the Mets is panicking just yet, and they are trying to focus on the positives.

The bullpen remains a concern, but they should get a boost soon since Jeurys Familia is set to return this week, although not necessarily as the closer.

The bare-bones production the Mets are getting from the leadoff spot is not a recipe for sustainable success.

Curtis Granderson has a hockey-inspired idea for when a game goes into extra innings.

Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard had a bit of fun at the ballpark on Sunday.

Around the NL East

Bartolo Colon continued his ownership of the Padres and led the Braves to a 9-2 win.

Despite having a no-hitter going, the Marlins pulled starter Dan Straily in the sixth inning.

The Phillies dropped their final game against the Nationals on a walk-off home run by Bryce Harper.

The Nationals almost let the game get away until Harper sealed the win. The Easter Bunny is apparently not a fan of the Presidents Race.

Around the Majors

The Orioles placed closer Zach Britton on the DL with forearm tightness.

Dodgers starter Rich Hill remains bothered by a blister and will most likely miss his next start.

Justin Verlander struggled in his last start against the Indians and the Tigers suspect sign stealing had something to do with it.

The Dodgers and Brewers are reportedly discussing a trade involving Ryan Braun.

The Blue Jays are off to a horrendous start that could force them into sell mode.

This Date in Mets History

On April 17, 1964 Shea Stadium became home for the New York Mets. It opened its doors with a 4-3 loss to the Pirates.
