Known as “Go Go” to his new teammates, Carlos Gomez, the veteran outfielder called up by the Mets from Class AAA last week, has brought energy and loud yelps to the home clubhouse at Citi Field in recent days.
On Thursday afternoon, he provided an uplifting jolt that the team sorely needed.
Gomez stepped to the plate in the bottom of the eighth with two out and two runners on base, and with the Mets down by a run against the visiting Nationals. Washington had intentionally walked catcher Wilson Ramos to get to Gomez, and the newcomer proceeded to blast a 95 m.p.h. cutter from Wander Suero over the fence in left-center for a three-run homer.
Gomez, who had lost his left cleat in the fifth inning after stealing second base and advancing to third on a throwing error, celebrated with a fist pump and shouts to himself as he sprinted around the bases.
“Those dramatic homers,” he said. “It’s really special.”
Closer Edwin Diaz came in to secure the save for a 6-4 Mets victory that concluded a four-game sweep of the Nationals.
“We’re rolling right now,” said Mets starting pitcher Steven Matz, who allowed 10 hits but limited the Nationals to one run over six innings.
Still, all was not good news for the Mets on Thursday. Before the game, they added Jeff McNeil, their best hitter, and Robinson Cano, their biggest off-season acquisition, to the injured list. Afterward, the team announced that outfielder Yoenis Cespedes had undergone surgery on the ankle he injured this week on his Florida ranch and that he would miss the rest of the season.
It was a chaotic end to a dramatic stretch that began with the Mets’ being swept by the last-place Marlins in Miami. The Mets had fallen five and a half games out of first place, and Manager Mickey Callaway’s job appeared to be in danger until General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen offered a vote of confidence on Monday.
Near the end of the sweep, however, it was the opposing manager, the Nationals’ Dave Martinez, who found himself in trouble — being ejected from Thursday’s game in the eighth inning as his team fell to 19-31. Washington, which had been billed as a contender in the National League East, now has as many losses as the Marlins.
Callaway commended his starter, Matz, for his calm in situations that typically would unsettle him on the mound. Matz got the Nationals to hit into double plays in both the first and second innings, and he collected seven strikeouts even as he allowed 10 hits.
“This is a huge leap for Matzy,” Callaway said. “I could see it in his face. I didn’t notice one time where he got rattled or wanted to spike a baseball. He stayed under control and understood, ‘I just need to execute pitches.’”
The poise was welcome in what became a hectic period, even by the Mets’ standards. Upon the team’s return to Queens on Monday, Van Wagenen maintained that Callaway had the full support of the front office and the team’s ownership for “the foreseeable future.” Van Wagenen also announced the surprising injury to Cespedes, who had been away from the team to rehabilitate both heels after an off-season operation.
Cano’s absence will be shorter, but his injury was no less exasperating. He had been taken out of the starting lineup for a game after failing to run out two grounders in Miami, and then he strained his left quadriceps while running out a ground ball on Wednesday. He landed on the 10-day injured list Thursday morning.
“Hopefully it is not too long,” Cano said at his locker.
Callaway expressed gratitude that Van Wagenen and his front office had addressed the team’s depth during the off-season. The night before Gomez’s game-winner, the veteran outfielder Rajai Davis delivered a three-run homer in a 6-1 victory just hours after being called up to the majors to join the Mets.
“You’re not capable of doing what we’ve done this series without great depth,” Callaway said.
The Mets’ injury list is almost as long as the daily lineup now. Right fielder Michael Conforto (concussion) continues to make his way through the evaluation protocol. Outfielder Brandon Nimmo (stiff neck) tried to play earlier in the week but felt too much pain. McNeil, who is third in the National League with a batting average of .333, sat out two games because of a hamstring injury before landing on the I.L. Thursday. The reserves have kept the Mets alive of late.
“These guys have not quit one time,” Callaway said. “That was an unbelievable comeback.”
The brightest spot in the organization continues to be rookie first baseman Pete Alonso. On Monday night, he ripped his 15th home run of the season. On Tuesday, he followed with No. 16. While he did not clear the fence with his fly ball to left-center in the bottom of the sixth Thursday, it was driven far enough to bring home J.D. Davis on a sacrifice for a 2-1 lead. Ramos followed that with an infield single that drove in third baseman Todd Frazier for a 3-1 lead.
“We’re not looking back, we’re not looking forward,” Callaway said. “We’re just living in the moment.”
When Gomez settled down in the clubhouse afterward, he was asked to consider the last week, from being swept in Miami to sweeping the Nationals. He laughed.
“Baseball is crazy,” he said.B:
