"Bruce homered for the third straight game and drove in three runs, Gsellman threw six sharp innings and the Mets moved closer to securing a wild-card berth with a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night. More Mets fans were inside a half-empty ballpark on a wet, chilly night when Ryan Howard began his final series in front of the home crowd. The blue-and-orange faithful screamed 'Let's Go Mets' and their 'Bruuuuuce' chants drowned out boos from Phillies fans. Philadelphia starter Alec Asher (2-1) retired the first 11 batters before he ran into trouble with two outs in the fourth when Yoenis Cespedes and Curtis Granderson hit consecutive singles. Bruce and T.J. Rivera followed with back-to-back RBI singles for a 2-1 lead. Earlier in the inning, Howard let Cespedes' infield pop fall untouched near the first-base bag, allowing a runner to score from third. Mets tied a franchise record with 106 homers on the road.

"SAN FRANCISCO — There might not be a bigger hot-button topic in the Mets’ organization than Michael Conforto, still regarded as a building block in the team’s future, even if the details are a little hazy. After bursting on the scene for the final two months last season and helping the team reach the World Series, the Mets’ 2014 first-round draft selection has bounced between the majors and Triple-A Las Vegas this year in a “puzzling” regression, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. Conforto, 23, has a .218/.297/.414 slash line with 11 homers and 33 RBIs in two stints with the Mets this season. His latest demotion to Las Vegas came on Aug. 13, with Conforto squeezed out from a lefty-hitting outfield mix that included veterans Jay Bruce, Curtis Granderson and Alejandro De Aza. Within the organization, the debate had raged whether Conforto belonged in the lineup every day with the Mets to work out his troubles or if his opportunities", nypost.com
"Cespedes hit two mighty home runs to sink the Giants in a 9-5 loss to the Mets - an estimated 457 feet to left-center off Matt Moore and an estimated 418 feet to left off Jake Peavy. Yes, they’ve been a World Series team while lacking power, but a three-run homer here and there goes a long way toward avoiding a losing streak, which plagued the Giants following the break. Denard Span homered into McCovey Cove in the third inning, the 71st time a Giants hitter reached the water on a fly, but it was a rare mistake by Mets starter Bartolo Colon -- like Cespedes a former A’s All-Star -- who yielded two runs in 6 1/3 innings. Moore, who threw 92 pitches and just 54 strikes, hasn’t won a game in four starts since he was acquired in the trade that sent Matt Duffy to Tampa Bay, though the Giants won his first start in extra innings. Moore exited after five innings with the Giants still in the game, trailing 3-2, and manager Bruce Bochy summoned Peavy, who lost his job in", www.sfgate.com
