      Mets' Steven Matz: Roughed up late

      Steven Matz (5-5) allowed five earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Braves.Matz had allowed only two earned runs and two hits through five innings of work. However, he surrendered four consecutive hits to begin the sixth frame -- three of which went for extra bases -- ruining his outing. After whiffing at least five batters in each of his last five starts, Matz also failed to miss many bats, generating just 10 swinging strikes. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, but he'll draw a tough road matchup against the Phillies.

      Mets' Steven Matz: Strikes out seven

      Steven Matz allowed one earned run on 10 hits and two walks while striking out seven across six innings Thursday against the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.Matz worked out of trouble for most of the day as he allowed multiple baserunners in four of the six innings he pitched. Still, he managed to limit the damage by inducing two double plays and also generating timely strikeouts. While the results were strong, his swinging strikes indicate that he wasn't particularly deceptive, especially when combined with the fact that he allowed 12 baserunners. Regardless, he'll look to keep the relatively positive results going in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday at the Dodgers.
