Recap: Game 10 - Mets (4) at Angels (5) - Familia Hits Conger to Force in Run in 11th


New York

Los Angeles

W: M. Kohn (1-0) L: J. Familia (0-2)
HR: NYM - T. d´Arnaud (1)   LAA - M. Trout (3),J. Shuck (1)


Video: Link - With the bases loaded in the 11th inning, Hank Conger took a Jeurys Familia fastball off his right rib cage to force in Raul Ibanez and give the Angels a 5-4 victory over the New York Mets.

Ibanez opened the deciding frame with a single to right and moved to second when Familia (0-2), in his third inning of relief, uncorked a wild pitch.

Ibanez alertly advanced to third ahead of David Freese's slow-rolling groundout to short, and a pair of intentional walks set the stage for Conger.

The Angels, who stranded 14 runners over the first 10 innings, received a solo homer from Mike Trout and a tying two-run blast from J.B. Shuck in the sixth.

Angels relievers retired the final 12 New York hitters, with Michael Kohn (1-0) tossing a perfect 11th to earn the win.

Josh Satin recorded a two-run double and d'Arnaud had a solo homer for the Mets, who were coming off a series win in Atlanta.

Both starters gave up four runs in their outings, with Tyler Skaggs giving up nine hits over seven innings for the Angels and Dillon Gee yielding six hits and four walks before being pulled with two outs in the sixth.

Eric Young and Daniel Murphy each singled to start the game, and the Mets only got one run out of it when David Wright bounced into a double play.

Trout hammered one over the wall in left-center in the bottom half, and d'Arnaud hit one to roughly the same spot to open the third.

Chris Iannetta's two-out, RBI single in the second had given the Angels the lead, and Satin put the Mets in front in the fourth when he found the gap in left to bring home Andrew Brown and Curtis Granderson.

Gee was cruising along until issuing a walk to Howie Kendrick in the sixth, then he caught too much of the plate on an inside fastball to Shuck, who turned on it and found the seats just inside the right-field foul pole.

Albert Pujols grounded out harmlessly to third to leave the bases loaded in the home eighth, and left two on in the 10th with a chopper back to the mound.

Preview: Game 10 - New York Mets (4-5) at Anaheim Angels (4-5) - Gee (0-0) vs Skaggs (1-0)

Preview: Game 10
New York Mets (4-5) vs Anaheim Angels (4-5)
Pitching Probables - Dillon Gee (0-0) 4.50 ERA vs Tyler Skaggs (1-0) 0.00 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 - 10:05PM


Tyler Skaggs is slated to take the mound and help the Angels avoid losing their first four home games for the second straight season Friday night against the New York Mets.

The Angels (4-5) re-acquired Skaggs from Arizona in a three-team, four-player trade in December, hoping he could add depth to a rotation that ranked 22nd in the majors with a 4.30 ERA.

The 22-year-old left-hander, a first-round draft pick by Los Angeles in 2009, looked capable of doing more than that Saturday. He dominated Houston, yielding an unearned run and four hits in eight innings of a 5-1 victory.

Skaggs has never faced the Mets in his career.

On the offensive side, Albert Pujols is 2 for 12 at home, but he hit safely in each game of the road trip, connecting for two-run homers in each of the last two contests.

The star first baseman is 8 for 18 (.444) with two homers, four RBIs and six runs over his last four meetings with the Mets, but those came in 2011 with St. Louis.

The Mets (4-5) will have Dillon Gee (0-0 4.50 ERA) on the Mound vs the Angels. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA on the road in interleague play.

Gee gave up two homers in Saturday's 6-3 win over Cincinnati. He surrendered the second a two-run shot before being pulled with one out in the eighth, but was off the hook for the loss after Ike Davis' walkoff grand slam.

Gee has held Albert Pujols hitless in three at-bats. He has only faced three batters on the Angels and they are batting .190 off him (4 for 21).

Eric Young Jr. was key to the success in the Atlanta series, going 5 for 12 (.417) with five stolen bases and as many runs. The left fielder was 2 for 19 with nine strikeouts over the first five games.

The Mets and Angels have split 12 all-time meetings, but New York has won four of six in Anaheim.

Happy Recap: Game 10 - Mets (16) at Twins (5) - Buck + Company Slam Twins

N.Y. Mets (6-4)«55000040216151
Minnesota (4-6)200030000562

W: J. Niese (2-0) L: V. Worley (0-2)
HR: NYM - J. Buck (6)   MIN - None

John Buck hit a grand slam en route to homering in his fourth straight game, while David Wright had three hits with four RBI and two runs scored as the New York Mets thumped the Minnesota Twins, 16-5, in the opener of a three-game interleague series at a snowy Target Field.

Buck, who also scored twice, now shares the major league lead with six home runs and 19 RBI. He also became the first catcher in MLB history with six home runs through 10 games.

Daniel Murphy went 4-for-5 with two doubles to go along with four RBI for the Mets, who saw starter Jon Niese (2-0) toss five innings and allow five runs -- four earned -- on five hits.

Marlon Byrd had two hits and two RBI in the win.

Ryan Doumit plated two runs and Justin Morneau had two hits with one RBI and a run scored for the Twins, who have lost four straight. Vance Worley (0-2) lasted just one-plus inning and gave up nine runs -- seven earned -- on seven hits and walked two in defeat.

After the Mets plated five runs in the first, Worley's struggles continued in the second. Jordany Valdespin and Murphy both hit singles to lead off the inning and Wright picked up his third RBI of the game with his own single scoring Valdespin to make it 6-2.

Worley then walked Ike Davis to load the bases and was replaced by lefty Pedro Hernandez. Buck made the Twins pay with a grand slam to deep left field on a full count offering to make it 10-2.

Morneau doubled in the gap to right field in the fifth scoring Aaron Hicks and moving Joe Mauer to third. Hicks reached safely after an infield error to start the inning and Mauer followed with a walk. Doumit made it 10-5 with a single up the middle scoring both Morneau and Mauer.

Murphy added to the visitors' cause in the seventh with a three-run double and Wright tripled to right field bringing home Murphy to make it 14-5. Valdespin and Murphy each knocked in a run in the ninth to cap the scoring.

New York's first four batters reached base safely in a five-run first inning. Wright drove in two runs with a double to deep left and in doing so he became the team's all-time leader in interleague RBI, passing Mike Piazza (89) with his 91st to make it 2-0.

After Davis walked, Buck hit into a fielder's choice and Wright scored on an error from Trevor Plouffe, with Davis ending up at third. Following a strikeout, Byrd singled through the right side scoring Davis and Buck to make it 5-0.

In the bottom of the first, Minnesota made it a 5-2 contest. Josh Willingham's fielders choice to short scored Hicks, who walked to lead off the frame. Two batters later, Plouffe singled to center to score Mauer.

Game Notes

New York had managed just one run in the first inning through its first nine games ... It was Buck's fifth career grand slam ... Mets catchers had just five total home runs last season ... Gabby Harnett (1925) and Sandy Alomar (1997) are the only other catchers to have hit five home runs through 10 games ... New York was 8-7 in interleague play last year ... Minnesota is now 7-6 all-time against the Mets ... Niese had gone 22 straight starts lasting at least six innings or more. That was the longest such streak in the majors.

Preview: Game 10 - Mets at Twins - Niese vs Worley

New York Mets (5-4) at Minnesota Twins (4-5) 8:10 PM ET

SeasonRd/HmLast StartLast 3 App
J. Niese (L) 2 1-0 2.135.20-00.004/6MIAND6.0811-012.22.13
V. Worley (R) 2 0-1 5.735.20-14.504/6@BALND5.01040-111.05.73

Jonathon Niese had a career year in 2012, a nice season in which he established himself as a potential No. 1 starter down the road.

With Johan Santana getting injured again and the New York Mets trading away Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey, Niese had to take on that role a little sooner than originally thought.

The left-hander hasn't disappointed, and he'll look to continue his strong start when the Mets visit the offensively challenged Minnesota Twins to open a three-game interleague series Friday night.

Niese went 13-9 with a 3.40 ERA in 30 starts last year, and the Mets gave him a five-year extension worth $25.5 million guaranteed April 4. That came three days after he started the opener and beat San Diego 11-2 by allowing two runs and four hits over 6 2-3 innings.

He was just as good in his second outing but didn't receive a decision after giving up two runs in six innings of a 7-3 victory over Miami on Saturday. Niese (1-0, 2.13 ERA) is also 2 for 4 with an RBI this season.

Catcher John Buck, one of the players acquired from Toronto in the Dickey deal, helped give the Mets the win in Niese's last start by driving in four runs. He homered for the third straight game Wednesday but the Mets (5-4) lost their second in a row, 7-3 at Philadelphia.
