Recap: Spring Training Game 10 - Braves at Mets - Mets Fall 4-2, Byrd drives in two

Atlanta (5-6)«1000101104121
N.Y. Mets (2-5)101000000281
W: D. Carpenter (1-0) L: D. Gorski (0-2) S: A. Wood (1)
HR: ATL - J. Upton (2),C. Johnson (2)   NYM - None


Hudson allowed six hits and a run while throwing 80 pitches over four innings Monday, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 4-2 win over the New York Mets.

"About 75 of those 80 were stressful pitches," Hudson said.

Justin Upton and Chris Johnson each hit solo home runs for the Braves. Marlon Byrd drove in both runs for the Mets.

Hudson gave up a hit to the first or second batter in each inning and often found himself in tough spots.

"It was good work for me," Hudson said. "I was able to pretty much have big situation pitches a lot - every inning. I was able to work out of most of them and make a good pitch here and there. It was a great work day,

"I just wouldn't be happy with it at all if it was June," he said. "That's what spring training's for, I guess."

Hudson got some help from catching prospect Christian Bethancourt, who threw out two base runners. And Bethancourt nearly hit Hudson while throwing out Mets outfielder Collin Cowgill in the first inning.

"He's really good back there," Hudson said. "He threw out a couple guys, he almost threw me out once. He pulled a Benito Santiago on me from his knees. I thought I was low enough, but I wasn't. He's only going to get better."

Mets starter Jeremy Hefner, who could be in the mix for a rotation spot if Johan Santana starts the season on the disabled list, went three innings, allowing three hits - including Upton's homer - and struck out two.

"First and foremost, I want Johan to be healthy," Hefner said. "He's a leader of this team. If something happens and he's not able to go, then obviously that would maybe fall on my shoulders. I'm going to prepare to go out and give it my best whenever my name's called. And whatever happens with Johan will take of itself."

The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Upton hit a high fastball well over the left field fence. Johnson, who went 3 for 3, connected in the seventh.

Byrd, a non-roster invitee, continued his strong spring, had a hit and is batting .400 in six Grapefruit League games.

"He's done a great job," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "One of the things I think, for sure, we're excited about seeing is his steadiness in the clubhouse and everything else, being a veteran guy. He did play winter ball until a week before spring training. That helps him coming in here, but I like a lot of the things I see."

Recap: Spring Training Game 9 - Gee throws three scoreless, Mets Lose 6-4

N.Y. Mets (2-4)004000000460

W: S. Dyson (1-0) L: S. Rice (0-1) S: E. Reed (1)
HR: NYM - B. Hicks (1),J. Buck (2)   MIA - K. Kouzmanoff (2)

Dillon Gee threw three scoreless innings for the Mets in his first start since having a blood clot removed from an artery in his pitching shoulder, but New York was beaten by the Miami Marlins 6-4 Sunday.

Gee gave up three hits, a walk and struck out one in his first start since July 7. The right-hander's only previous outing this spring was two innings in relief against the University of Michigan on Feb. 24.

Mets catcher John Buck hit a three-run homer against his former team.

Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi was charged with three runs and two hits in 2 2-3 innings. He struck out four and retired his first seven batters before giving up a home run to Brandon Hicks.

Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria hit a two-run double.

Recap: Spring Training Game 8 - Marlins at Mets - Mets Come back and Tie 8-8, Duda, Harvey Shine

Miami (3-3)1001320108132
N.Y. Mets (2-3)0000213208122

HR: MIA - C. Yelich (1),J. Mahoney (1),J. Mahoney (2)   NYM - L. Duda (1),B. Bixler (1)


Brian Bixler hit a two-run home run and Zach Lutz drove in a pair of runs while Lucas Duda hit a homer and scored twice for the Mets. Starter Matt Harvey allowed one run on three hits and fanned four over 2 2/3 innings.

Harvey gave up a leadoff homerun to Marlins prospect Christian Yelich before settling down to strike out four in 2 2-3 innings, and the New York Mets and Miami tied 8-8 on Saturday.

"It was a little cold, a little tough getting a grip on the ball, but I have to get used to it," Harvey said on a day when temperatures hovered in the upper 50s and low 60s. "I did a lot of good things, did a lot of bad things. Still have some work to do, but other than that, everything feels good."

Harvey, who said he grew up pitching in snow in Connecticut, allowed one run, three hits and walked one. He immediately settled in after Yelich's home run, retiring five in a row - including three strikeouts.

"Obviously, the competitive edge doesn't want to give up any hits or runs or anything like that, but at the same time it's throwing some pitches I wouldn't throw in certain counts and I think in the third inning I kind of backed up some change-ups there," Harvey said.

Mets right fielder Lucas Duda homered and had two hits, one day after being scratched from the lineup for an undisclosed medial issue.

Duda, who had offseason wrist surgery and was 1 for 10 coming into the game, downplayed Saturday's success.

"There's no difference," Duda said. "I just think seeing more live pitching is a big factor. ... Just like when I went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts and today 2 for 3 it's just one day. Just keep working hard throughout the spring and get better."

Marlins third baseman Chone Figgins made two errors - one throwing and one fielding. .

Harvey said he paid close attention to Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, who threw in Port St. Lucie on Friday. Harvey said his goal this season is to hit the 200-inning mark, which Verlander has done six straight years. ...

Mets starter Shaun Marcum, who has not pitched since the spring opener on Feb. 23, will pitch in a minor league game in Jupiter on Tuesday. Relievers LaTroy Hawkins and Pedro Feliciano also are scheduled to pitch in that game.
