Happy Recap: Game 130 - Phillies (0) at Mets (5) - Niese pitches complete game shut out

Philadelphia (60-72)000000000032
N.Y. Mets (59-71)«00100400x550

W: J. Niese (6-6) L: K. Kendrick (10-11)
HR: PHI - None   NYM - None


Jonathon Niese pitched his second career shutout and added a three-run double, and the new-look New York Mets snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Prior to the game, the Mets traded outfielder Marlon Byrd, catcher John Buck and cash considerations to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for minor league infielder Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later.

However, despite dealing their home run leader in Byrd, and the Mets still playing without their franchise star David Wright, who is battling a strained hamstring, New York generated more than enough offense in the second portion of this four-game series.

Niese (6-6) allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out five for his first shutout since June 10, 2010. The 26-year-old southpaw has been performing great since returning from the disabled list, picking up his third win in four starts.

Daniel Murphy and Travis d'Arnaud had an RBI apiece for New York.

Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick (10-11) gave up all five runs -- one earned -- on five hits and four walks over six innings.

The Mets got on the board in the third. Niese walked with one out and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Eric Young. Murphy then knocked a single to right, scoring Niese.

They added four more runs in the sixth. With one out and the bases loaded, d'Arnaud hit a sacrifice fly to center, scoring Andrew Brown. Kendrick then intentionally walked Omar Quintaniila, before giving up a bases-clearing double to left-center from Niese.

Meanwhile, Niese didn't allow a runner past first until the eighth, when he gave up a leadoff double to Michael Young. However, that would be it, as he retired the next three batters.

In the ninth, he walked Jimmy Rollins with two outs, but got Chase Utley to fly out to center field to end the game.

Game Notes

The Mets also placed pitcher Matt Harvey on the 15-day disabled list with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament of his right elbow ... Niese entered the game 3-2 with a 2.25 ERA in six career starts against the Phillies. He also has a 2.54 ERA at home this season ... The Mets have won three of their last four at home against the Phillies, but are 6-11 over the last two years versus Philadelphia at Citi Field ... The Phillies lost for just the third time in their last 10 games.

A day after Harvey was lost for the season, the Mets will try to avoid matching their longest slide of 2013 on Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Phillies.

New York (58-71) hasn't reached the playoffs since 2006 and seems headed for a fifth straight losing season for the first time since a six-year stretch from 1991-96.

Harvey was giving the Mets optimism that at least one of those streaks would end soon.

Instead, the 24-year-old phenom was ruled out for the remainder of 2013 after a partially torn ligament in his right elbow was discovered Monday. Harvey and the Mets are hopeful that he'll avoid Tommy John surgery, but that decision isn't likely to come for at least two more weeks.

"It was tough. Obviously it was the last thing I was expecting. I am going to do everything I can to avoid surgery," said Harvey, the NL starter in last month's All-Star game at Citi Field and owner of a 2.27 ERA -- second-lowest in the majors.

Happy Recap: Game 130 - Mets at Phillies - Mets show life, Win 3rd in a Row 3-2

Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia, Pa.)
N.Y. Mets (61-69) «012000000381
Philadelphia (61-69)110000000260
W: M. Harvey (3-3) L: T. Cloyd (0-1)
S: F. Francisco (22)
HR: NYM - L. Duda (13)   PHI - None

Lucas Duda hit the go-ahead two-run homer in the third inning, and the New York Mets escaped with a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the second edition of a three-game set.

Matt Harvey (3-3) lasted 6 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and two runs, fanning six with two walks. He also contributed an RBI single for the Mets, winners of four straight games.

"He has extraordinary stuff," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Harvey. "He kept the damage down and pitched very well."

Frank Francisco tossed a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save as New York improved to 7-1 this season in Philadelphia.

Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins drove in the runs for the Phillies, who have lost two in a row after sweeping Washington over the weekend.

Tyler Cloyd (0-1) acquitted himself well in his major-league debut, but lost after being charged for seven hits and three runs over six full frames.

"I thought he did fine, kept the ball down, had good location," said Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. "He gave us a chance to win the game. He looked in control and his command was good."

Cloyd, who was recalled from Triple-A after going 12-1 with a 2.35 earned run average in 22 starts there, took the hill in place of Cole Hamels. The veteran lefty was felled by stomach issues.

Down 2-1, the visitors got a one-out single from Ike Davis before Duda deposited a pitch deep into the right-field seats near the foul pole for a 3-2 edge.

Harvey, who tied the game with a second-inning single, didn't run into trouble until the fifth. With two on and one out, he escaped the jam as Chase Utley lined to right and Howard lined out to deep left.

Josh Edgin finished off the seventh, then Robert Carson and Jon Rauch took care of the eighth. Francisco retired the side in order in the final frame.

Pierre's leadoff single in the home first turned into the game's first run after he advanced to third on an Utley hit and scored on Howard's fly to left.

After the Mets tied the game in the second, Rollins knocked in Kevin Frandsen with a two-out double in the home half.

Game Notes

The win marks the first time the Mets have won at least seven games in Philadelphia since 1972, when they won eight of nine at Veterans Stadium ... Prior to the game, the Phils placed pitcher Vance Worley on the 15-day DL and announced that he will undergo surgery for bone chips in his pitching elbow within the next 10 days.

A pair of highly-touted rookies square off on Wednesday when the New York Mets return to Citizens Bank Park for the middle game of a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Mets start first-year righty Matt Harvey, a 23-year-old Connecticut native making the seventh start of his initial big-league stint, while the Phillies turn to right-hander Tyler Cloyd, who will make his big league debut in place of an ailing Cole Hamels.

Harvey, a 6-foot-4, 225-pounder, tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings in a 3-1 defeat of Arizona in his debut on July 26, then dropped three straight starts to San Francisco, San Diego and Atlanta between July 31-Aug. 10.

He scored a second win at Cincinnati on Aug. 18 and got a no-decision in an Aug. 22 meeting with Colorado while combining to allow seven hits and two runs across 13 2/3 innings of work.

Harvey has permitted a .186 opposition batting average in 36 combined innings.

Cloyd, meanwhile, was just named the International League's Pitcher of the Year on Tuesday, going 12-1 with a league-leading 2.35 ERA for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Happy Recap : Game 130 - Braves at Mets - Capuano shuts down Braves

Final Score: New York 6, Atlanta 0

Chris Capuano blew through the Braves lineup, striking out a career-high 13 batters in a two-hit shutout Friday to lead the Mets to a 6-0 win.

Capuano (10-11) was perfect through four innings and didn't allow a walk, throwing 79 of his 122 pitches for strikes on the way to his third career shutout and fourth complete game.

The left-hander has probably never been better, but he wasn't the only thing keeping the Braves from scoring runs this weekend.

Friday's game was supposed to be the opener of a three-game series between the teams, but Saturday and Sunday's games were postponed because of the threat posed by Hurricane Irene.

Backing their pitcher with a consistent offensive push that took a while to pay off, the Mets had at least one baserunner in all eight innings while improving to 4-11 in their last 15 games.

Angel Pagan, Ruben Tejada and Lucas Duda each had three hits, while Duda and Justin Turner both smacked two-run doubles in the win.

Preview: Game 130 - Braves at Mets - Mets will open up against Hudson

Atlanta Braves (79-53) at New York Mets (61-68), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Atlanta - Tim Hudson (13-7, 3.01) New York - Chris Capuano (9-11, 4.71)

Right-hander Tim Hudson takes the mound for the suddenly streaking Atlanta Braves when they head to New York to begin a three-game series with the homestanding Mets at Citi Field.

The Braves have won nine of their last 11 games to both pull back into fringe contention in the National League's East Division - where they trail Philadelphia by six games - and strengthen their hold on the wild card lead, which they've pushed to 9 1/2 games over San Francisco.

Hudson, a veteran of 370 major-league outings, has won four straight decisions and seven of eight in his last 10 starts since opening the season at 6-6.

He spun seven shutout innings of three-hit ball in his last appearance on Aug. 21 against Arizona, striking out seven in a 1-0 victory.

The Braves are 8-2 in his last 10 outings since July 2, a stretch in which Hudson has allowed three runs or less nine times and pitched six or more innings in all 10 games.

He beat the Mets, 4-1, in New York on Aug. 5 to improve to 14-8 against them in 23 career meetings.

Atlanta finished a four-game series with the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday when Brian McCann hit a pair of homers and drove in four runs in an 8-3 win.
