#Whiff! Clippard strands a pair in the 8th. After 8 we lead 7-2. #LGM http://t.co/jSAhjPY4GV
Collins: Clippard's Struggles Unrelated to Back Issue
Back Injury Still an Issue for Clippard
With Tyler Clippard struggling, Terry Collins is considering moving him to the 7th inning https://t.co/WuDaL934KK #Mets
The #Mets plan for today: deGrom for about 80 pitches, then Bartolo, Clippard, Familia in relief.
Here we go again...
Jacob deGrom is through four no-hit innings. He's probably done after five. Colon, Reed, Clippard, Familia available.
Jacob deGrom: 4 IP, 0 H
Bartolo Colon: 1 IP, 0 H
Logan Verrett: 1 IP, 0 H
Reed, Clippard, Familia next. #Mets
#Whiff! A perfect inning for @TylerClippard! Mid-8, no score. #Mets http://t.co/vpsZ09GA41
Despite recent struggles, Terry Collins says Tyler Clippard should be primary setup man to Familia, in part because of numbers vs. lefties.
Seven #Mets on the NLDS roster have playoff experience: Cespedes, Clippard, Colon, Cuddyer, Granderson, Kelly Johnson, David Wright.
The #Mets will turn to Tyler Clippard and, almost certainly, Jeurys Familia for their final six outs. They lead the Dodgers, 3-0 mid-8th.
Terry Collins said he won't revisit bumping Tyler Clippard from the eighth inning.

Oh my God. It's not Reed. It's not Clippard. It's Bartolo Colon coming out of the bullpen. It's quite clear now whom Collins doesn't trust.
Lost in everything is the fact that, with the game on the line, Collins eschewed both Reed and Clippard and turned to Bartolo Colon instead.
Collins says he is probably going to stick with @Areed43 in the 7th and @TylerClippard in the 8th. "They have got us this far." #LGM
Clean frame for @TylerClippard. It's time! #YaGottaBelieve #Mets #LGM http://t.co/AsRCNkK8RA
Terry Collins said Addison Reed and Tyler Clippard still seventh/eighth-inning guys -- not Bartolo Colon as primary setup man.
Jon Niese, Addison Reed and Tyler Clippard have given the #Mets seven key outs tonight. They lead, 4-1 over the Cubs in the eighth.
#Mets reliever Tyler Clippard on 2-0 NLCS lead: "We're feeling good, man. We're feeling really good. We're playing the way we want to play."
Jacob deGrom is officially done after seven innings. Tyler Clippard will at least start the eighth. #Mets
Clippard strands a runner at 2nd in the 8th. We lead 5-2 as we head to the 9th. #LGM
It'll be Tyler Clippard in the eighth, presumably until/unless he gets into trouble. Familia is fresh and ready to go from here on out.
Tyler Clippard still uses The Fugees as his warmup music. Still so strong.
Tyler Clippard breezes through the eighth. #Mets 9, #Royals 3, mid-8
Yeah @TylerClippard! He gets them 1-2-3. #Mets #LGM https://t.co/iDePSIukjM
Tyler Clippard on the captain:
"He's David Wright for a reason. No moment is too big for him." #Mets
"He's David Wright for a reason. No moment is too big for him." @TylerClippard on the Captain. https://t.co/9h80CuBEum
"He's David Wright for a reason." – @TylerClippard
Royals figure out a way to get Michael Conforto out. #Mets 3, #Royals 2, end 7. Enter Tyler Clippard.
The eighth inning belongs to Tyler Clippard.
Tyler Clippard in for the eighth. Imagine that Jeurys Familia is ready at the first sign of trouble.
Tyler Clippard starts the 8th for New York (NL).
Back-to-back one-out walks by Tyler Clippard. Wow.
Terry Collins just sprinted up the dugout steps to go take Tyler Clippard out of the game.
Tyler Clippard been biggest disappointment of late.
Tyler Clippard will not finish the 8th. Jeurys Familia has entered the game with runners on first and second and one out. 3-2 Mets.
So, double play. 5-3 Royals after a three-run eighth that turned on two walks by Clippard and an error by Daniel Murphy. My word.
NEW YORK -- With the World Series in the balance, the Mets went to Tyler Clippard. It ended as you'd expect, although not how you'd expect.
The Kansas City Royals rallied for three runs in the eighth inning against relievers Tyler Clippard and Jeurys... https://t.co/AUIdaUyXCy
