Monte Pearson becomes the first pitcher to throw a no hitter in Yankee Stadium. The right-hander faces only 27 batters, thanks to two double plays, beating the the Indians, 13-0, for his tenth consecutive victory.
I don’t know… thought this was cute. Josh was sitting on the other side of the dugout at his usual sit beside Tulo but he got up and went all the way to the other side to sit beside Devo who we all know just wants to play (the eye black again). These little things makes me so happy about this team.
8/13/16 Mets vs. Padres (Pride night, Styx postgame concert) Mets win 3-2 Starting Pitchers: deGrom + Cosart Seats: Upper deck, 3rd base side
There was a great atmosphere in the house for the first LGBT Pride night for a major New York sports team, and the Mets ended it on a good note. After Familia gave up a home run to lose the save in the 9th, Wilmer Flores drove in the winning run in the 11th inning (on some interesting fundies by the Padres’ rookie second baseman Ryan Schimpf, who opted to throw wildly home rather than attempt the double play). Gabriel Ynoa got the win in his major league debut, pitching a perfect inning in the 11th to close it out. deGrom also had a great start.
