Happy Recap: Game 103 - Mets (6) at Marlins (5) - Ike Davis' RBI double the difference, Parnell saves it

N.Y. Mets (47-56)«0030003006101
Miami (40-64)000302000560
W: D. Aardsma (2-0) L: A. Ramos (3-4) S: B. Parnell (21)
HR: NYM - None   MIA - None


Ike Davis' go-ahead RBI double highlighted a three-run seventh and helped the New York Mets down the Miami Marlins, 6-5, in the opener of a four-game set.

Daniel Murphy tallied two hits, three RBI and a pair of runs scored for the Mets, who snapped a three-game losing skid.

David Aardsma (2-0) recorded the final two outs in the sixth to pick up the win and Bobby Parnell worked a scoreless ninth to notch his 21st save of the year.

Ed Lucas had an RBI triple and scored twice for Miami, which had won five of its previous seven.

After the Marlins took a 5-3 lead following a two-run sixth, New York countered with its three-run seventh.

Eric Young belted a one-out double against Mike Dunn and came home when Murphy followed with a looping single into center. A.J. Ramos (3-4) replaced Dunn on the mound and got David Wright to fly out. Murphy stole second, advanced to third on a wild pitch and then scored when Marlon Byrd singled to center. Davis came up next and laced a double to right to plate a hustling Byrd and give the Mets a 6-5 advantage.

Greg Dobbs had a one-out single in the ninth and pinch-runner Juan Pierre stole second before taking third on defensive indifference, but Giancarlo Stanton grounded out to second to end the game.

New York jumped out to a 3-0 spread following a three-run third. Murphy snuck a two-out, two-run single through the hole on the left side and Wright followed with an RBI double, but the Marlins answered with three runs in the fourth and two more in the sixth.

Stanton led off the fourth with a double and scored two batters later when Lucas belted a triple over the head of Juan Lagares in center. With two outs and the bases loaded, Marlins starting pitcher Jacob Turner bounced a ball to short, but Omar Quintanilla bobbled the grounder, allowing two runners to score.

Jeff Mathis ripped a one-out, two run single in the sixth to give Miami a 5-3 margin.

Game Notes

Turner allowed three runs on five hits and three walks over 6 1/3 innings, while New York starter Jeremy Hefner surrendered five runs -- three earned -- on four hits and five walks over 5 1/3 frames ... New York was 3-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

Young righty Jacob Turner aims for a second straight pitching gem against the New York Mets on Monday night when the Miami Marlins host them in the opener of a four-game series at Marlins Park.

Just 22 years old, Turner faced the Mets for the third time in his brief big- league career on May 31 and emerged a 5-1 winner after scattering five hits and striking out three batters in seven innings in Miami.

It was his third career meeting with the Mets and leveled his record against them to 1-1 while lowering his earned run average against them to a stingy 1.83 in 19 2/3 innings.

Turner has gone 2-3 in nine subsequent starts, last winning on July 10 against the Atlanta Braves. His last two outings have ended in losses at Milwaukee and Colorado while he's allowed 11 hits and four runs in 11 combined innings.

In four starts this season in Miami, Turner is 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 30 innings.

The Marlins are 5-5 in his last 10 starts, with four of the wins coming in Miami.

Preview: Game 104 - Mets at Giants - Harvey vs Lincecum

New York Mets (50-53) at San Francisco Giants (55-47) 10:15 PM ET

T. Lincecum (R) 21 4-11 5.886.12-53.907/25SDL4.2751-119.23.20

If the San Francisco Giants want to end their losing streak, Tim Lincecum may not be the perfect option to send to the mound.

Either way, Lincecum gets the nod Tuesday for the Giants in the continuation of a four-game series versus the New York Mets at AT&T Park.

Lincecum is having a down year as evidenced by his 4-11 record and 5.88 earned run average in 21 starts. He has lost three of his past five outings, including Wednesday's 6-3 setback to San Diego in which he allowed five runs and seven hits, including two homers, in 4 2/3 innings.

"Hopefully this isn't a step backward," Lincecum said afterward.

The right-hander and two-time NL Cy Young Award winner defeated the Mets back on April 23 this season at Citi Field with five innings of one-run ball in a 6-1 victory. Lincecum, who is only 2-5 in 10 home starts in 2012, improved to 4-1 with a 2.77 ERA in eight career starts against New York.

San Francisco suffered its fifth straight loss in last night's 8-7 setback in 10 innings, as Scott Hairston homered off Giants closer Santiago Casilla and Jason Bay later scored on Rob Johnson's fielder's choice bunt. Casilla was saddled with the loss and starter Madison Bumgarner struck out nine batters and allowed two runs in six innings.

Nate Schierholtz singled in a run in the bottom of the 10th and ended with three hits and two RBI. Marco Scutaro, Ryan Theriot, Melky Cabrera and Buster Posey all finished with two hits and an RBI for the Giants, who are only a percentage point ahead of Los Angeles and 3 1/2 games in front of Arizona for the NL West lead.

Happy Recap: Game 103 - Mets at Giants - Hairston Homers Twice in Mets Win

HR: NYM - S. Hairston (13),S. Hairston (14)   SF - None

Scott Hairston homered twice, including a leadoff shot in the 10th inning off Santiago Casilla, and the New York Mets won a wild 8-7 contest over San Francisco to send the Giants to their season- high fifth straight loss.

Pinch-Hitter Justin Turner doubled home the go-ahead tally during a four-run eighth inning, but the Giants rallied for two in the ninth for a 6-6 tie thanks to RBI doubles from Buster Posey and Nate Schierholtz.

In the 10th, Hairston struck a 1-1 curveball over the wall in left-center. Jason Bay walked with one out and Mike Baxter, just activated from the 15-day disabled list, had a pinch-hit single up the middle.

Clay Hensley was summoned from the bullpen to replace Casilla (4-5) and Rob Johnson bunted toward the mound. Hensley looked toward second before firing home late, as Bay scored standing up.

Schierholtz singled in Ryan Theriot with two outs in the bottom of the 10th, but Manny Acosta regrouped and secured his first save of the year by retiring Brandon Belt on a fly ball to the warning track in center field.

"Manny Acosta, two years in a row, has been an outstanding pitcher in the second half of the season. We need him now," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Hairston and Bay each scored three times for the Mets, who won back-to-back contests for the first time since ending June with a four-game winning streak.

The Giants left 15 men on base and fell into a virtual first-place tie with the Dodgers in the NL West.

"It was a wild game. A lot of little things happened. We swung the bats, but made some mistakes and it came back to get us," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

Hairston's two-run blast to left off Sergio Romo in the eighth tied the game and Turner doubled off the base of the wall in left-center later in the frame to plate Jason Bay. Rob Johnson capped the outburst with an RBI single for a 6-4 lead, but Bobby Parnell and Josh Edgin (1-0) couldn't hold the advantage.

Posey's double to the alley in left-center plated Melky Cabrera, and later Schierholtz laced what turned out to be a double to right. Ike Davis, playing in at first base, saw the ball bounce under his glove into the outfield. With the bases full and Marco Scutaro facing a 3-2 pitch, Edgin painted the outside corner to send the game to the 10th.

Scutaro's sacrifice fly in the third gave the Giants the lead, but Ronny Cedeno doubled home two runs in the fourth.

Cabrera's single plated Scutaro in the fifth, and the Giants went ahead 4-2 in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Aubrey Huff beat out a potential double play ball to score one run, but he left the game with an apparent leg injury after running hard to first. With runners at the corners, Theriot singled to right to plate pinch-runner Matt Cain.

Game Notes

New York is 3-2 on its season-high 11-game road trip...The Mets came into Monday batting .184 with men in scoring position over their last 13 games, but went 3-for-8 in such situations in the opener of this four-game series...Mets center fielder Andres Torres hurt his thumb while legging out a hit in the fifth inning...Giants center fielder Angel Pagan hurt his right hand punching something after an at-bat...The Giants had a season-high 16 hits...Giants starter Madison Bumgarner had nine strikeouts over six innings, and New York's Jeremy Hefner allowed 10 hits and four runs over the first 5 2/3 frames...Edgin got his first major league win.

The San Francisco Giants only have themselves to blame for losing grip on the National League West lead. Tonight, they hope to bounce back versus the New York Mets in the opener of a four-game series at AT&T Park.

The Giants have lost four straight and sit a percentage point ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers for division bragging rights. They were just swept in three games against L.A. and dropped a 4-0 decision in Sunday's series finale.

Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw hurled a five-hit shutout, while Giants right- hander Ryan Vogelsong was saddled with the hard-luck loss for giving up two runs - one earned - over six innings. Jeremy Affeldt allowed a pair of runs in relief.

"We got two months of baseball to play and a lot of things can happen between now and then. If history repeats itself, this division always comes down to the last couple weeks of the season," Vogelsong said.

San Francisco managed just five hits and was outscored, 19-3, in the series. It is 2-4 so far on a 10-game homestand and hopes Madison Bumgarner can continue his home dominance when he toes the rubber tonight. Bumgarner is 7-1 with a 1.89 earned run average in nine starts at AT&T Park this season, but did not receive a decision his last time out in a 3-2 win over San Diego by the bay.

Preview: Regular Season Game 103 - Mets at Reds

New York Mets (51-51) at Cincinnati Reds (50-52), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Jon Niese (9-8, 3.76) Cincinnati - Johnny Cueto (6-3, 1.98)

Dominican righty Johnny Cueto seeks his first career win against New York tonight when the Cincinnati Reds host the visiting Mets in the second contest of a four-game series at Great American Ball Park.

A winner of 38 decisions in 106 starts across three-plus big-league seasons, Cueto is winless in four tries against the Mets, going 0-2 with a bloated 8.14 earned run average in 21 innings of work. He's given up 30 hits and 19 runs in that stretch, while Mets batters have connected for a .333 batting average.

The 25-year-old has been lights-out against the rest of the league thus far in 2011, holding batters to a .198 average in 95 2/3 innings while winning six of nine decisions in 14 starts.

He earned his latest victory on July 20 at Pittsburgh, allowing four hits in six innings with four strikeouts while defeating the Pirates, 3-1.

In his last 10 starts, in which the Reds are 6-4, Cueto has allowed three runs or less and pitched at least six innings all 10 times.

Cincinnati is 9-5 in his 14 overall outings this season.

For the Mets, lefty Jon Niese can reach double-digit wins for the first time in his brief major-league career.
