Juan Uribe gave his new team something to celebrate Sunday, when one swing catapulted the Mets to a 3-2, walk-off victory over the Dodgers at Citi Field.

7/26/2015 | deGrom outpitches Greinke during duel

Like many baseball fans, Jacob deGrom had Sunday circled on his calendar.

So when Zack Greinke, MLB's ERA leader, had his start switched from Friday to Sunday, deGrom saw another opportunity. He seized it, outdueling Greinke in the Mets' 3-2 win against the Dodgers.

7/26/2015 | Familia hasn't been as automatic in 2nd half

The Mets had been 43-1 when leading after eight innings this year, a testament to how dominant and valuable Jeurys Familia proved himself over the season's first four months.

That in spite of Familia, who blew his second save of the second half after converting 27 of 29 chances in the first.

7/26/2015 | Harvey confident in slider for first time all year

The Mets have promoted prospect Michael Conforto, acquired Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson and made it known that they will explore trades for additional offense during a hectic weekend at Citi Field.

The Mets were thrilled for Conforto on his 4-for-4 night, with an RBI and four runs scored. But they were happier still that Conforto had a ridiculous amount of company.

7/25/2015 | Greinke aims to extend scoreless streak

When Zack Greinke flew to Los Angeles on Thursday to witness the birth of his first child, a son named Bode, he threw the Dodgers' rotation into instant flux, put his 43 2/3 scoreless-innings streak on hold and turned the finale of this four-game series at Citi Field into an All-Star Sunday.

Following days of poor weather in Florida, the Mets moved Travis d'Arnaud's rehab assignment to Double-A Binghamton on Saturday without him ever playing a game at Class A Advanced St. Lucie. It worked -- the weather held and d'Arnaud finished 1-for-3 with a single, catching five innings.

7/24/2015 | Niese makes start as wife gives birth

Jon Niese will surely remember Friday night, but he may try forgetting the game, a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers at Citi Field. With his wife, Leah, about to deliver the couple's second child in Toledo, Ohio, Niese spent Thursday afternoon more than 500 miles away unsure if he would even pitch at all.

7/24/2015 | Persistent knee pain lands Cuddyer on DL

When Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer stepped on the treadmill early Friday morning, a patient at Manhattan's Hospital for Special Surgery for the second time in two days, he felt a familiar jab of pain.
