by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer blasted a two-run home run off Phillies' Sean O'Sullivan in his team's 7-0 win on Wednesday.

"When he's swinging that bat well, he's pretty special," first baseman Lucas Duda said to MLB.com. "We could ride him for a week, week and a half."

The long-ball to left field was Cuddyer's fifth home run of the season. Cuddyer now has 22 RBI in 164 at-bats this season.

Mets LF Michael Cuddyer out against Pirates SP A.J. Burnett


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mets LF Michael Cuddyer could be finding his way at the plate


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer had his first three-hit game of the season in Thursday's win over the Cardinals. Cuddyer reached safely in all four of his plate appearances, going 3 for 3 (all singles) with a walk. 

The veteran outfielder has gotten off to a rather slow start at the plate for his new team, but he may be starting to turn things around. He's reached base safely via a hit or a walk in each of his last seven games, batting .346 during that span. 

“I feel a little better,’’ Cuddyer said after the game, per the New York Post. “I don’t really tinker with mechanics too much. There’s a few things you I can do in the cage that will free you up a little bit, and we’re getting you that point. But ultimately, you look at the box score, and that’s how you say if a guy is hot or not.’’

Cuddyer hasn't homered since May 1, so the power hasn't quite been there for him yet. But the team is happy to see Cuddyer improving.

“Cuddy’s hitting the ball well. He hit the ball well [Wednesday] night, but right at them," Mets first baseman Lucas Duda said. "I think we’re getting rolling here offensively, and that will just help us. It should be fun.’’

He also drove in and scored a pair of runs as he upped his batting average to .242 on the season.
