Recap: Game 102 - Mets (1) at Brewers (9) - Brewers put on a show in Milwaukee, Gee continues to lose to them


New York


W: M. Garza (7-7) L: D. Gee (4-3)
HR: NYM - L. Duda (16)   MIL - J. Lucroy (12),K. Davis (17),R. Braun (14)


Jonathan Lucroy, Ryan Braun and Khris Davis all homered and drove in two runs as the Milwaukee Brewers crushed the New York Mets, 9-1, in the opener of a four-game series on Thursday.

Seven of the Brewers' 10 hits went for extra bases, including a two-run triple by Jean Segura, as the club followed up a three-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds with a fifth straight win at home.

Matt Garza (7-7) bounced back from a forgettable outing his last time out and allowed a run over eight innings to earn the victory.

Lucas Duda homered for the Mets, who were coming off a series win in Seattle but have still dropped four of their last six.

For the second time in as many starts, Dillon Gee (4-3) lasted only five frames and surrendered a season-high six runs on six hits and a pair of walks. Gee fell to 0-4 with a 7.66 ERA in four career outings against the Brewers.

Lucroy got the rout started with a solo homer in the first, and a pair of one- out walks in the second led to a big inning for the hosts.

Segura plated Davis and Mark Reynolds when he found the opposite-field gap in right and slid in with a triple, and Carlos Gomez and Lucroy added RBI singles with two away.

Davis doubled in Rickie Weeks in the third, then sent the first pitch thrown by Daisuke Matsuzaka in the sixth into the bullpen beyond the wall in left- center for a solo homer.

The only hit Garza allowed in the first six frames came in the third on Wilmer Flores' infield dribbler, but Duda got a hold of one in the seventh and crushed his 16th home run to deep center.

The blast was the only other hit allowed by Garza, who walked one and struck out four. The performance was a stark contrast to the shortest start of his career last Saturday when he recorded only one out and gave up five runs to the Washington Nationals.

In the seventh, Braun capped the scoring with a mammoth two-run moonshot into the second deck in left-center.

Gee can't handle his BREW - Entering this game Dillon Gee was 0-3, with a 6.75

Game Notes

The Brewers are first in the majors with 69 first-inning runs, three more than the Mets ... Before Lucroy's homer, Gee had not allowed a home run to a right- handed batter since April 11 ... Gee's ERA has risen from 2.56 to 3.49 over his last two outings.

Probable Pitchers:
Dillon Gee (4-2, 2.92 ERA) vs Matt Garza (6-7, 4.04 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch: 8:10 PM


Matt Garza should be pretty well-rested when he takes the mound Thursday night.

That's because the Milwaukee Brewers right-hander followed some time off for the All-Star break with the shortest start of his career, leaving him with fewer than 50 pitches thrown in the last two weeks as he gets ready to face the visiting New York Mets in the opener of a four-game series.

Garza (6-7, 4.04 ERA) allowed two runs and three hits over 7 2/3 innings in his final outing before the break, a 9-1 home loss to Philadelphia on July 10. He had eight days off before starting in Washington on Saturday, and the rest didn't help.

Garza gave up five runs and five hits while walking two and recording just one out while throwing 42 pitches.

Garza, who went 4-2 with a 2.35 ERA in his previous six starts, also said he wasn't concerned.

The Brewers (57-45) considered bringing Garza back earlier, but he said he didn't want to mess up anyone else's routine.

The decision has paid off for NL Central-leading Milwaukee, which is coming off a three-game sweep of Cincinnati highlighted by a 2.29 ERA from its starters. Kyle Lohse pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and Mark Reynolds homered twice in Wednesday's 5-1 victory.

The Brewers have won five of seven following a 1-11 stretch.

The Brewers will next face Dillon Gee, who also lost his first start after the break. Gee (4-2, 2.92) allowed four runs and five hits -- two homers -- in five innings of a 6-0 defeat at San Diego on Saturday.

The Mets (48-53) enter this series after Bartolo Colon was perfect through 6 2/3 innings of a 3-2 win over Seattle on Wednesday. They took two of three against the Mariners and have split the first six contests of a 10-game trip.

Gee has lost all three starts against Milwaukee behind a 6.75 ERA, while Garza hasn't received a decision in two outings versus the Mets despite posting a 1.93 ERA.

Neither pitched when the Brewers took two of three in New York from June 10-12.

N.Y. Mets (46-56)000100000182
Washington (52-54)«03520301x14180

W: T. Jordan (1-3) L: C. Torres (1-2)
HR: NYM - None   WAS - W. Ramos (6),D. Span (2)


Wilson Ramos had a grand slam and five RBI and the Washington Nationals recorded 18 hits en route to a 14-1 rout against the New York Mets in the finale of a four-game series at Nationals Park.

Denard Span had a two-run home run and three RBI while Bryce Harper and Ian Desmond drove in two runs apiece for the Nationals, who took three straight games from the Nats after being shut out in the series opener.

Taylor Jordan (1-3) gave up one run on five hits while fanning seven and walking one over six innings to pick up his first major league win.

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-3 and drove in the lone run for the Mets. Starter Carlos Torres (1-2) lasted just three innings, surrendering eight runs on nine hits and a walk.

In the second, Torres put runners on the corners after allowing a one-out double to Desmond and a single to Span. Ramos' base hit to right center plated Desmond.

Jordan advanced the runners with a sacrifice bunt and Harper delivered a two- RBI single to left.

The Nationals blasted Torres for five runs in the third. Ryan Zimmerman hit a leadoff double and Jayson Werth walked with one out. Desmond delivered an RBI single to right and Ramos capped the inning with a grand slam two batters later.

The Mets got on the board in the fourth. Eric Young singled to begin the frame and scored on a two-out single to center by Byrd.

However, Washington scored two runs in the home half. Back-to-back singles by Anthony Rendon and Zimmerman started the inning. After Adam LaRoche grounded into a double play, Werth scored Rendon with a single to left.

Following a walk to Desmond, Span scored Werth with a single up the middle. However, on the same play, Desmond was thrown out trying to reach third.

The Nationals weren't done scoring, as they added three more runs in the sixth. Werth knocked a two-out single to right. He got to second on a wild pitch by David Aardsma and third on a passed ball before scoring on a single by Desmond. Span followed with a two-run shot to give the team a 13-1 advantage.

In the eighth, leadoff man Steve Lombardozzi singled and scored when Desmond ripped a two-out double to right and Andrew Brown had trouble grabbing the ball after it bounced off the right-field wall.

Ryan Mattheus came out in the ninth for the Nationals. He loaded the bases after allowing back-to-back singles to Juan Lagares and Omar Quintanilla and walking Brown.

Fernando Abad replaced Mattheus and retired Young, Josh Satin and Anthony Recker to end the game.

Game Notes

Desmond and Span both went a perfect 4-for-4 with three runs scored ... Ramos is batting .322 with four home runs and 17 RBI in 17 games since returning from the disabled list on July 4 ... Torres entered the game with a 0.94 ERA, fifth-lowest in the majors with a minimum of 25 innings ... Byrd has 12 multi-hit games in July, including seven in his last 13 games. He also has 19 RBI this month ... The Nationals hit 9-for-12 with runners in scoring position while the Mets were just 1-for-9 with RISP and left 11 men on base.

A pair of young promising pitchers meet this afternoon when Carlos Torres leads the New York Mets against Taylor Jordan and the Washington Nationals in the finale of a four-game series at Nationals Park.

Torres hasn't lost either of his two starts this season for the Mets. The 20- year-old right-hander will try to follow a solid performance against Atlanta on Tuesday when he limited the Braves to a run over six innings in a 4-1 triumph.

Torres started his time with the Mets this season with 10 consecutive relief efforts, but he was thrown into what is now a six-man rotation so the team can limit the innings pitched by Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler for the long haul this year. This will mark his first career start against the Nationals.

Jordan has yet to win in five career big league starts. The 24-year-old righty is coming off a 5-1 loss to the Pirates on Tuesday. He allowed nine hits and five runs -- four earned -- over 7 2/3 innings.

Jordan's major league debut came against the Mets at Citi Field on June 29 when he suffered a 5-1 defeat. Jordan yielded five hits and three runs -- one earned -- over 4 1/3 frames.

Happy Recap: Game 102 - Mets at D-Backs - Dickey Picks Up His 14th Win

Chase Field (Phoenix, Ariz.)

N.Y. Mets (49-53) «2000110105101
Arizona (51-51)000001000140

W: R. Dickey (14-2) L: J. Saunders (5-7)
HR: NYM - None   ARI - None

Stuck in a rut for the last month, R.A. Dickey recaptured his pre-All-Star break form and won his National League- leading 14th game.

The knuckleballer tossed seven innings of one-run ball and the New York Mets downed the Arizona Diamondbacks, 5-1, in the finale of a four-game set.

Dickey (14-2) fanned eight, scattered four hits, walked three and surrendered an unearned run. He was 1-1 with a 6.49 earned run average in July coming into the contest and had allowed eight-or-more hits in each of his last four starts.

"I just kept telling myself to stay with it. It (knuckleball) was pretty good," said Dickey, who experienced bouts of nausea during the game. "I felt like I had a pretty good knuckleball the whole nine (innings)."

Scott Hairston knocked in a pair of runs for New York, which won for only the third time in its last 17 games.

Joe Saunders (5-7) was charged with four runs on eight hits and three walks in seven innings for Arizona, which has dropped three of its last five on the heels of a five-game winning streak.

"You tip your hat to Dickey, he pretty much baffled us all day," Saunders said.

The Mets jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the opening frame as David Wright ripped an RBI double off the base of the wall in right-center and Hairston blooped a run-scoring double down the right field line.

New York doubled its advantage after plating a run in the fifth and another in the sixth.

Wright led off the fifth with a walk, stole second and came home on Hairston's single to left, while David Murphy's two-out RBI double to left in the sixth made it 4-0.

Dickey, who gave up just a hit through the first five frames, ran into a bit of trouble in the home sixth.

Aaron Hill reached on an infield single with one out and advanced to second on Ruben Tejada's throwing error at shortstop. He scampered to third on a passed ball during Jason Kubel's at-bat, who struck out, and scored on Paul Goldschmidt's liner into center.

Miguel Montero then walked, which brought the tying run to the plate in Chris Young, but Dickey fanned him for the third time to keep it a 4-1 game.

The Mets got the run back in the seventh on Josh Thole's RBI double to left, increasing the margin to 5-1.

Game Notes

Wright's double was his 31st of the season...The Mets were 4-for-14 with runners in scoring position and left nine on base, while the D-backs finished 1-for-6 and stranded seven...Time of Game: 2:39.

R.A. Dickey eyes his 14th win of the season this afternoon when the New York Mets conclude their four-game set with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

Dickey has nowhere near resembled the pitcher who was an All-Star in the first half of the season and enters tonight's tilt on the heels of another poor showing against the Washington Nationals. Dickey gave up five runs (4 earned) and eight hits in six innings of that one, dropping him to 13-2 to go along with a 2.97 ERA.

"It's tough when things are going on what seems to be a downward spiral," Dickey said. "In order to change it, we have to stand up and own what's ours to own. I could have pitched better. Two strikes, an 0-2 count with two outs in the sixth inning, and five straight hits. Four runs later, we're in a hole that we can't get out of. I've got to make a pitch. Somewhere during that sequence, I've got to make a pitch."

Dickey has now allowed 19 earned runs in 26 1/3 innings, for a 6.49 ERA in five July starts.

Despite his recent struggles the right-handed knuckleballer is tied for the National League lead in wins with St. Louis' Lance Lynn and Washington's Gio Gonzalez, who also pitches on Sunday. Tampa Bay's David Price is the only starter in the league with 14 victories.

Dickey beat the D'Backs earlier in the year and is 1-1 in two starts against them with a 2.40 ERA.

Arizona, meanwhile, will rely on lefty Joe Saunders, who is 5-6 with a 3.51 ERA. Saunders won for the first time in four starts on Tuesday against Colorado, as he allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings. He also struck out nine in the win.

Happy Recap : Game 102 - Mets at Reds - Murphy saves the day...

Final Score: New York 4, Cincinnati 2

Daniel Murphy's tie-breaking, two-run double highlighted a four-run seventh inning, as the New York Mets escaped with 4-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the opener of a four-game series.

Carlos Beltran and Jason Bay both knocked in a run in the decisive frame as the Mets halted a two-game skid.

R.A. Dickey (5-8) turned in a strong outing, allowing just two runs on eight hits while fanning seven over 6 2/3 innings.

Cincinnati loaded the bases with two down in the bottom of the ninth, but Jason Isringhausen struck out Brandon Phillips to earn his third save of the season.

Mike Leake (8-6) surrendered two runs over 6 1/3 innings to suffer the loss.

"That's what I'm supposed to do. I'm supposed to go out there and not give up runs," said Leake. "Our offense will come around. We've been slumping, but we'll be fine."

Phillips and Drew Stubbs, who delivered a walkoff home run in Sunday's 4-3 victory over the Braves, each had an RBI for the Reds.

Stubbs went down looking with men on second and third to end the fifth, but the Reds broke through an inning later, as Phillips ripped a double to right to score Miguel Cairo, who led off with a single.

Similarly, the Mets stranded two in the sixth before getting on the board in the seventh. They placed runners on the corners following back-to-back, one- out singles from Jose Reyes and Justin Turner, effectively chasing Leake.

Bill Bray entered and allowed an equalizing sac fly to Beltran before handing the ball to Logan Ondrusek. David Wright greeted Ondrusek with a single before Murphy and Bay hit consecutive doubles to make it a 4-1 game.

Preview/ Lineup: Game 102 - Mets at Reds

New York Mets (50-51) at Cincinnati Reds (50-51), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - R.A. Dickey (4-8, 3.80) Cincinnati - Mike Leake (8-5, 4.11)

A pair of potential .500 teams - each 50-51 through 101 games - get their first chances to return to even tonight when the New York Mets visit the Cincinnati Reds to open a four-game series at Great American Ball Park.

The Reds climbed within a game of .500 on Sunday at home, as Drew Stubbs led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a homer off Scott Linebrink to beat the Atlanta Braves, 4-3, in the rubber match of a three-game series.

Meanwhile, the Mets fell from .500 on Sunday in Miami, as Logan Morrison clubbed a game-tying home run and John Buck delivered a two-out, RBI double in the eighth inning to give the Florida Marlins a 5-4 win in the rubber match of a three-game series at Sun Life Stadium.

Cincinnati's middling record has kept it in the thick of the race in the National League's Central, where the Reds are three games behind a three-way tie for first place involving St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee.

The forecast is a bit different for New York in the NL East, when a one- below-.500 record leaves the Mets 14 1/2 games behind the front-running Philadelphia Phillies and 8 1/2 in back of the early wild card leaders in Atlanta.
