Happy Recap: 2014 Spring Training Game - Mets (SS) (10) at Cards (4) - Niese out with elbow problem, Vaughn has 3 hit day, 4 RBI Day


New York

St. Louis

W: K. Farnsworth (1-0) L: K. Butler (0-1)
HR: NYM - C. Vaughn (1)   STL - None


Jonathon Niese lasted only two innings for a New York Mets split squad Sunday, leaving a 10-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals with a sore left elbow.

Niese will head back to New York for tests, the latest setback for the left-hander in what he described as ''the spring training from hell.'' He is expected to have an MRI exam Monday, and it's unclear when he might pitch again.

''It's the back of the elbow, which is good,'' Niese said. ''I'm almost 100 percent sure it's nothing serious.''

Niese's latest injury increases the likelihood that Bartolo Colon will start on opening day against Washington. Cory Vaughn had big day going 3 for 4 with a 2 run HR. Four RBI's on the day...

Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada committed his fourth error in the span of seven games on a routine grounder in the third inning. Tejada did respond with two outstanding plays later in the game, including one that started a 6-4-3 double play to end the third.

Matt Clark going 3 for 5, has to open some eyes for a first basemen job if Duda and Davis continue their injury issues. Daniel Murphy went 3 for 3 in the game... Josh Satin went 1 for 4 in his quest to be the starting firstbasemen..

The Mets catcher combined (Anthony Recker and Taylor Teagarden) went 3 for 7...

Matt den Dekker went 1 for 5 , but left 5 men on base..

Prospect Travis Taijeron went 2 for 2 with a double.... Kyle Farnsworth went 1.2 innings giving up 2 hits, no runs.... Vic Black gave up 3 hits in his inning of work and got touched for a run.
