Washington (50-54)«000010001261

W: R. Soriano (2-2) L: L. Hawkins (3-2)
HR: NYM - None   WAS - R. Zimmerman (12)

Recap:

Ryan Zimmerman hit the game-winning home run in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Washington Nationals split a day/night doubleheader against the New York Mets with a 2-1 victory.

With LaTroy Hawkins (3-2) pitching for the Mets, Anthony Rendon grounded out to lead off the ninth. Next was Zimmerman, who clubbed a 3-1 fastball over the right field wall to give the Nationals just their second win in the last nine games.

Both of those have come in walk-off fashion with Bryce Harper hitting a two- run homer Thursday in a 9-7 victory over the Pirates.

Rafael Soriano (2-2) escaped troubled in the top of the inning to pick up the win. Andrew Brown hit a one-out double and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Ike Davis walked, putting runners at the corners, but Soriano retired Juan Lagares and Daniel Murphy.

Nationals starter Ross Ohlendorf allowed one run on six hits and a pair of walks over seven innings. He had a season-high eight strikeouts.

On the one-year anniversary of his major league debut, Matt Harvey pitched eight innings, allowing one unearned run on five hits while striking out seven and walking one for the Mets, who won the opener, 11-0 behind a 4-for-5, two- homer, five-RBI performance from Daniel Murphy.

The Mets got on the board in the fourth. Josh Satin knocked a double to right with one out and scored on John Buck's two-out double to left.

The Nationals tied the game in the fifth. Jayson Werth hit a leadoff single and Ian Desmond walked. After Steve Lombardozzi struck out, Wilson Ramos grounded into a fielder's choice towards Mets shortstop Justin Turner. Desmond was forced out at second, but Murphy's attempt to turn a double play was off the mark and hit Ramos' leg, allowing Werth to score.

Game Notes

Harvey has 11 starts where he's pitched seven or more innings and allowed one or fewer runs, most in the majors ... Murphy went 6-for-10 in the doubleheader and is 13-for-25 over his last six games ... Buck has 14 RBI in his last 12 games ... The Mets hit 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left 10 runners on base... Zimmerman is 8-for-16 over his last three games ... The Nationals are 11-2 in one-run games against the Mets since the beginning of 2011 ... Turner left the game with an injured shoulder ... Washington's Dan Haren is scheduled to face New York's Dillon Gee on Saturday.

Preview:

Establishing himself as one of baseball's most dominant pitchers, Matt Harvey is obviously a big part of the New York Mets' future.

They once had high hopes for former top prospect Jenrry Mejia, too.

Mejia is set to make his season debut in Game 1 of Friday's day-night doubleheader against the host Washington Nationals before Harvey gets the ball in Game 2.

Mejia, who struggled through a disappointing 2010 rookie season and underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011, was placed on the disabled list this spring with inflammation in his elbow. The right-hander, though, will get another chance to shine after going 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts at Double-A Binghamton.

Mejia went 1-2 with a 6.23 ERA in three big league starts in September.

"We've tried to let him know or wanted him to understand -- what he's hearing today about (Zack) Wheeler, about Harvey was all about Jenrry Mejia three years ago," manager Terry Collins told the Mets' official website. "Sky's the limit, plus stuff, power arm -- all those things, and he's only 23 years old."

The 24-year-old Harvey (8-2, 2.23 ERA), meanwhile, leads the NL with 157 strikeouts and is 5-0 on the road. In his first appearance since starting the All-Star game, Harvey beat Philadelphia on Sunday when he allowed three hits and struck out 10 in seven innings in a 5-0 win.

"That might be the best stuff I've seen him have," Collins said. "What I really liked (was that) in the middle of the game, he was trying to pitch to contact to have some easy innings. And he still threw the ball by some guys."

Recap: Game 100 - Mets at D-Backs - Mets Back to Basics , Losing 11-5

W: J. Collmenter (3-2) L: J. Niese (7-5)
HR: NYM - I. Davis (17),D. Wright (16)   ARI - None

Recap:
Willie Bloomquist smacked a run-scoring single as part of a six-run second inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks coasted to an 11-5 rout of the New York Mets in the second test of a four-game set at Chase Field.

Chris Young clubbed a two-run double for the Diamondbacks, who snapped a brief two-game skid. Aaron Hill, Paul Goldschmidt, Justin Upton and Henry Blanco added an RBI apiece in the victory.

Josh Collmenter (3-2) allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk with five strikeouts over six innings to pick up the win. He also contributed offensively with an RBI single. Relievers Brad Ziegler and Craig Breslow finished off the rout for the D-Backs.

"It was a lot closer that the score indicates," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "We kept adding on though. (David) Wright hit a bomb there, but Josh kept his composure because we needed innings tonight."

Wright smoked a three-run home run and Ike Davis clubbed a solo shot in the loss for the Mets, who have dropped 13 of their last 15 games.

Jon Niese (7-5) was tagged for eight runs -- six earned -- on nine hits and a walk over six innings. He fanned five batters.

"I think there are nights where he really struggles, he just can not make the pitch he needs to make," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "Tonight he left some balls up and on the plate and they had some good swings."

The Mets opened the scoring with a pair of runs in the second inning. Davis led off the frame with a long shot to right for the first run, and Andres Torres singled home Daniel Murphy later in the frame.

The Diamondbacks exploded for six runs in the home half to take the lead.

Upton started the hit parade with a one-out single, followed by base hits from Young and Stephen Drew to load the bases. Upton trotted home on a walk by Blanco and Collmenter ripped a single to plate Young.

The turning point of the inning came when Bloomquist topped one up the third base line to Niese, who stumbled to the ball, spun and threw wildly to first. The ball sailed past Davis, kicked off the tarp and rolled into right field, allowing three runs to score. Hill capped the inning with a sacrifice fly to make it a 6-2 game.

Ruben Tejada started the Mets third with a single and Jordany Valdespin followed with a hit before Wright brought everyone home with a towering shot to left, cutting the deficit to 6-5.

Drew started the Arizona fourth with a single and came around to score on a single by Bloomquist later in the inning to extend the lead to 7-5.

Jason Kubel ripped a double to left leading off the D-Backs fifth and scored on a single up the middle by Goldschmidt, widening the margin to 8-5.

Arizona put the game away with three runs in the seventh. Hill and Goldschmidt singled off Mets pitcher Elvin Ramirez around a Kubel strikeout to put two runners on base with two outs. Upton dropped a single in front of Torres in center to score Hill, and Young followed with his towering double into the left field corner to cap the scoring.

Game Notes

The Diamondbacks have scored six or more runs in an inning four times this season...Wright's home run snapped an 0-for-15 slump...Arizona has won seven of their last eight home games against the Mets...Young has hit safely in seven of his last eight games...The D-Backs went 7-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left just two on base, while the Mets went 2-for-7 with runners in scoring position and stranded five.

Matt Harvey provided the New York Mets with the lift they sorely needed on Thursday. Now Jon Niese will attempt to give the badly slumping club its first winning streak in nearly a month when he takes the mound for tonight's second test of a four-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks from Chase Field.

A string of four consecutive victories from June 27-30 had the Mets squarely in contention in the National League playoff race, but the team fell well off the pace after it dropped 15 of its first 19 games in July. New York had lost six in a row and 12 of its last 13 contests entering Thursday's opener of this set, but returned to the win column last night thanks to a dazzling debut by Harvey.

The highly touted pitching prospect fanned 11 Diamondbacks over 5 1/3 shutout innings in his first big league start, setting a new Mets record for strikeouts in an initial outing and leading New York to a 3-1 triumph.

Harvey's 11 K's were also the most by a pitcher in an MLB debut since Washington's Stephen Strasburg racked up 14 strikeouts in his much-anticipated first start against Pittsburgh on June 8, 2010. The 23-year-old, New York's first-round pick in the 2010 Draft, also impressed at the plate, collecting a double and a single in his first two at-bats.

He had tremendous composure," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Harvey. "The velocity through the first four innings, you could tell he was pretty juiced up. He's lived up to exactly what everybody's talked about."

Onetime Diamondback Scott Hairston gave Harvey some early support with a two- run double off Arizona All-Star Wade Miley in the first inning, while Andres Torres tripled in the fourth and came home on Rob Johnson's sacrifice fly for a 3-0 advantage.

Arizona finally got on the board with a run off Mets reliever Jon Rauch in the bottom of the eighth and put two men on against Bobby Parnell in the ninth, but the New York closer struck out Jason Kubel with the tying run aboard to end the contest.

"We needed to hang in there, which we did," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "We had our opportunities, which we weren't able to capitalize on."

Recap : Game 100 - Mets at Marlins - Gaby Sanchez Hits 2 HR , Mets Lose


Final Score: Florida 8, New York 5

Gaby Sanchez hit a pair of two-run home runs as the Florida Marlins took down the New York Mets, 8-5, in the second of a three-game set.

Omar Infante went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored while Logan Morrison added a solo shot for the Marlins, who snapped a four-game slide.

Florida third baseman Emilio Bonifacio extended his hitting streak to 22 games thanks to a 2-for-4 night that saw him score twice.

Clay Hensley was pulled after five innings as he gave up two runs on four hits with four walks. Burke Badenhop (2-1) got the win despite giving up a run and three hits over 1 2/3 innings.

Jose Reyes went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs scored while David Wright drove in two for the Mets, who had won three of four coming into the game. Both players had come off stints on the disabled list earlier in the week.

Chris Capuano (8-10) was strong through five innings, but saw things come apart in the sixth as he gave up four runs in the frame. He finished the inning, but left after that and was charged with all four runs and six hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

New York Mets (50-49) at Florida Marlins (47-53), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Chris Capuano (8-9, 4.16) Florida - Clay Hensley (1-2, 2.70)

Even though the Mets are 12 1/2 games off the pace in the National League East, the squad now has something to cheer about thanks to the return of third baseman David Wright. Out for more than two months with a stress fracture in his lower back, Wright will once again be in the lineup for the Mets as they play the second game of a three-game set against the Florida Marlins at Sun Life Stadium.

On Friday night Wright delivered a pair of doubles, drove in two runs and scored twice in his team's 7-6 victory in the series opener, the team's third win in the last four outings. Justin Turner added a hit and a couple of walks as he too scored twice, Daniel Murphy added another two RBI, while Jose Reyes chipped in a double and a run scored as well.

"I've missed everything about being out there," said Wright. "The camaraderie, the guys in the dugout, being up by one in the ninth inning and sweating it out. I had fun out there tonight and it's good to be out there."

Mets starter Mike Pelfrey made it through six innings of action, giving up four runs on five hits -- two home runs -- but also walking four and striking out just three as he failed to earn a decision. Bobby Parnell tallied his third win of the campaign with one run permitted over 1 1/3 and Jason Isringhausen secured his second save of 2011.

Edward Mujica suffered the loss for the Marlins, giving up two runs on just one hit and a walk over 1 1/3 innings of relief. Starter Chris Volstad was touched for four runs -- three earned -- on eight hits and three walks, fanning four through five innings.
