Mets Notes

  • On Saturday, the team claimed infielder Gosuke Katoh off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays. The 27-year-old will be optioned to Triple-A Syracuse.

  • Prior to Thursday night's comeback victory, the Mets had lost their last 330 games over the last 25 seasons when trailing by six or more runs entering the ninth inning.

  • After a 19-9 start to the season, only the 1988 Mets (21-7), 1986 (21-7) and 1972 (21-7) teams have posted a better record through the first 28 games of the season.

  • Max Scherzer has not suffered a loss in any of his last 24 starts, which is tied for the sixth-longest streak of starts without a loss in modern MLB history.

  • In 29 career games in Philly, Starling Marte has hit .391 (45-for-115) with 23 runs, 13 doubles, five home runs, 16 RBI, six walks and nine steals with a .440 OBP and a .635 SLG.
