Happy Recap: Game 105 - Mets (2) at Brewers (0) - deGrom and Duda put finishing touches on Brewers


New York


W: J. deGrom (5-5) L: J. Nelson (1-2) S: J. Mejia (15)
HR: NYM - L. Duda (18)   MIL - None


Closer Jenrry Mejia extended his arms in front of him and kneeled quickly as he let out a yell with the final out secured in first baseman Lucas Duda's glove.

A 2-0 victory Sunday over the Milwaukee Brewers allowed the New York Mets to head home after the All-Star break, happy with a 5-5 record on its grueling 10-game road trip.

Duda hit a two-run homer and rookie Jacob deGrom pitched well into the seventh to allow the Mets to split a four-game series with the NL Central-leading Brewers.

With the non-waiver trade deadline looming Thursday, the Mets are five games under .500 overall at 50-55 and 6 1/2 games back in the wild card race.

Duda sent an 0-2 slider in the sixth from rookie Jimmy Nelson (1-2) into the second deck above right field to break a scoreless pitcher's duel. It was Duda's third homer in four days in Milwaukee.

Overall, Duda finished with four homers and seven RBIs on the road.

The Brewers mounted a ninth-inning rally against Mejia with two outs after Jean Segura's single put runners on first and second. Mejia got Lyle Overbay to ground out for his 15th save.

DeGrom (5-5) held the Brewers to four hits and two walks, exiting with one out in the seventh after allowing two singles. Reliever Vic Black got out of that jam.

DeGrom had location and life on a fastball that peaked in the mid-90s, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.

The closest thing to a rally came in the ninth after Khris Davis reached first on an infield single with one out. The play stood following a replay review.

Mejia got Mark Reynolds to strike out before Segura singled to put the tying run on base. After Overbay grounded out, Mejia savored the save with his animated celebration.

The rookie starters matched scoreless innings early. Nelson allowed four doubles and got into a little trouble in missing high with his sinker, but finished with six strikeouts in seven innings. He was also helped by three double plays.

But that one slider he left up to Duda proved to be the difference. At least Nelson got to smile after singling up the middle in the third for his first career hit in 66 at-bats as a professional, dating back to the minor leagues.

DeGrom won his fourth straight start, each time getting into the seventh. The most worrisome pitch for the righty came when Reynolds hit a towering fly ball to left that appeared to hit the heavy wires that support Miller Park's retractable roof.

The ball caromed back into fair territory, and Davis, at first, was racing around third when he was held up after the umpires ruled the play foul. DeGrom then struck out Reynolds looking.

The right-hander with curly brown hair flowing out from under his blue cap had hitters swinging through fastballs that peaked in the mid-90s. He finished with four strikeouts and lowered his ERA to 2.81.

NOTES: The Mets improved to 22-13 in day games. ... 3B Aramis Ramirez, who was 2 for 24 on the seven-game homestand, had a day off before popping out in the seventh as a pinch hitter. ... Manager Ron Roenicke indicated 2B Scooter Gennett could return to action full time when the Brewers open a three-game series Monday in Tampa ... Bartolo Colon (9-8) starts when the Mets return to the Citi Field for the first time since the All-Star break to play the Phillies on Monday. ... Kyle Lohse (11-4) opens the three-game series against the Rays for Milwaukee.

Preview: Game 105 - Mets at Brewers - deGrom vs Nelson

Preview: Game 105
New York Mets (49-55) at Milwaukee Brewers (59-46)

Probable Pitchers:
Jacob deGrom (4-5, 3.01 ERA) vs Jimmy Nelson (1-1, 5.06 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio WOR 710 AM - First Pitch: 2:10 PM

The Brewers seek a sixth win in seven tries Sunday in the finale of this four-game set against the Mets at Miller Park.

Milwaukee (59-46) has a three-game lead over St. Louis in the Central and is exploring options ahead of Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline in the hopes of improving its postseason chances.

Pitching is a concern with the Brewers ranking ninth in the league with a 3.72 ERA, the highest mark of any NL team currently in a playoff spot.

However, there has been improvement in that area recently, with Milwaukee's pitchers compiling a 2.00 ERA during a 5-1 stretch. The Brewers have won two of three in this series, holding the Mets (49-55) to six runs and a .186 batting average.

Wily Peralta and four relievers combined to allow eight hits in Saturday's 5-2 win, a day after closer Francisco Rodriguez gave up three runs in the ninth in a 3-2 loss.

The Mets, though, could have the advantage on the mound in the finale, with deGrom (4-5, 3.01 ERA) set to oppose fellow rookie Jimmy Nelson (1-1, 5.06).

Jacob DeGrom is 4-1 with a 1.59 ERA over his last six starts, and he's won three straight behind a 0.86 ERA, striking out 26 with three walks in 21 innings. He leads all NL rookies with 79 strikeouts.

Manager Terry Collins feels deGrom isn't getting the appropriate credit, claiming he should be a frontrunner for NL Rookie of the Year.

DeGrom certainly was for Seattle on Tuesday, allowing one run with seven strikeouts in seven innings of a 3-1 win. It was the fifth time in six games that the right-hander pitched into the seventh.

He didn't do that against Milwaukee on June 11, getting pulled with two outs in the sixth after allowing three runs and nine hits in a 3-1 loss.

DeGrom is also 7 for 25 at the plate, and Collins has been impressed enough to bat him eighth in three games.

While deGrom tries to continue his dominance, Nelson is getting a third start since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

The right-hander tied a franchise record by hitting three batters Tuesday and allowed three runs in six innings without a decision in a 4-3 win over Cincinnati.

That was a much better showing for Nelson, who surrendered eight runs -- six earned -- over 4 1/3 innings in a 10-2 loss to St. Louis in his previous outing July 12 -- his first since joining the rotation after being recalled from the minors.

Nelson was sharp in his only start against the Mets, yielding one run and only a single to Daniel Murphy in five innings of a 4-2, 10-inning win at New York on Sept. 28.

Recap: Game 105 - Mets (2) at Marlins (3) - Marlins Edge Mets

W: H. Alvarez (2-1) L: J. Mejia (1-1) S: M. Dunn (2)
HR: NYM - None   MIA - J. Marisnick (1)


Henderson Alvarez threw 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball and Jake Marisnick hit his first home run of his career as the Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets, 3-2, in the third test of a four-game series at Marlins Park.

Alvarez (2-1) gave up two runs on six hits and two walks in his outing. The 23-year-old right-hander has allowed just two runs on 14 hits over his last three starts. He also contributed with the bat, going 2-for-3 with a run scored.

Placido Polanco and Giancarlo Stanton drove in a run apiece for the Marlins, who have the opportunity to split the series in Thursday's finale.

Ike Davis went 2-for-3 with an RBI for the Mets, who saw starter Jenrry Mejia (1-1) surrender all three runs on six hits and one walk in six frames.

Marisnick's solo shot came with two outs in the second.

In the bottom of the inning, Eric Young ripped a two-out triple that bounced off the top of the center-field wall. Umpires reviewed the replay and kept the call. However, after Daniel Murphy walked, David Wright flew out to right.

Miami tacked on two more runs in the third. Alvarez hit an infield single to lead off and Christian Yelich knocked a double to left. Back-to-back sacrifice flies by Polanco and Stanton gave them a 3-0 lead.

The Mets got on the board in the sixth. Marlon Byrd reached on a two-out infield single and scored on Davis' double to right.

New York had a chance to rally in the top of the eighth. Young walked to start the inning and advanced to third on a lineout by David Murphy. Alvarez was replaced by Chad Qualls, but Young scored on a passed ball to cut the deficit to one.

Wright singled and stole second, but Byrd flew out to center and Miami reliever Mike Dunn got pinch-hitter Josh Satin to fly out to left.

Dunn gave up a leadoff single to John Buck in the ninth, but retired the next three batters to notch his second save.

Game Notes

Davis is hitting .242 (15-for-62) since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on July 5 ... Byrd went 2-for-4. He has 14 multi-hit games this month, including nine in his last 16 games ... Rob Brantly went 0-for-3, snapping a nine-game hitting streak against the Mets ... The Marlins are 9-5 against the Mets this season and have won eight of their last 11 meetings ... Miami's Tom Koehler is scheduled to face the Mets' Matt Harvey in Thursday's finale.

Dominican Jenrry Mejia gets his second start of the season for the New York Mets on Wednesday night when they visit Marlins Park for game three of four with the host Miami Marlins.

The 23-year-old, who was 1-6 over 38 appearances in 2011 and 2012, made his 2013 debut on July 26 and emerged with an 11-0 road victory over the Washington Nationals.

He scattered seven hits, struck out seven and walked none in the effort, which was his first career meeting with the Nationals.

Mejia had spent the early months of the 2013 season shuttling through the minors and compiling a 2-0 record in six starts in the Single-A Florida State and Gulf Coast leagues and the Double-A Eastern League.

In 62 complete big-league innings over three seasons, he's allowed an opposition batting average of .292.

Surprisingly Happy Recap: Game 105 - Mets at Giants - Niese, Mets Squeak Out Win

AT&T Park (San Francisco, CA)
N.Y. Mets (51-54) «110000000291
San Francisco (56-48)000001000131
W: J. Niese (8-5) L: M. Cain (10-4)
S: B. Parnell (4)
HR: NYM - R. Tejada (1)   SF - B. Posey (14)

The Mets started the game with a homer from Ruben Tejada, and even after coming up empty after loading the bases in their final three innings, were able to squeeze past San Francisco, 2-1, at AT&T Park.

The Mets had 19 base runners, coming on nine hits, nine walks and a hit batsman, but gave the Giants every opportunity to win Wednesday night. New York went 1-for-13 with men in scoring position and left 13 runners on base, but managed to take their second victory in this four-game series.

Jonathon Niese (8-5) gave up three hits, including a sixth-inning homer to Buster Posey, as the Mets posted just their fifth win in 19 games since the All-Star break. Niese lasted seven innings.

"He threw all his pitches for strikes. I thought his changeup was good tonight. After the first inning he was outstanding," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Tejada and David Wright each had three hits for the Mets.

Hunter Pence, a day after being traded from the Phillies, started in right field for the Giants but went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in his new team debut.

Matt Cain (10-4) had control problems early and lasted five innings in suffering his second loss in his last 16 starts.

The Giants, losers in six of their last seven contests, remained a game ahead of the Dodgers for first place in the NL West.

"It's a tough one to lose because we dodged bullets all night," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "We didn't do much with the bats or created a lot of chances either."

Tejada hit the second pitch of the game over the wall in left. Tejada had gone more than 600 at-bats since his only other career homer, which came Sept. 5, 2010 at Wrigley Field.

Cain threw 30 pitches in the first inning and struggled again in the second, loading the bases with one out after consecutive singles by Josh Thole, Niese and Tejada. Jordany Valdespin grounded a ball to third base for a force play, resulting in New York's second run, and Wright fanned to end the inning.

Gregor Blanco saved a run in the top of the fourth. With Tejada on second base and two outs, Valdespin sent a fly ball to left-center field. Blanco extended his body to make a great diving catch.

Posey homered to left with two outs in the sixth.

The Mets had great chances to pad their lead in the seventh, eighth and ninth after loading the bases, but came up empty each time.

In the seventh, Javier Lopez entered from the bullpen to replace George Kontos and got Ike Davis to ground into a 6-4-3 double play.

In the eighth, the Mets essentially ran themselves out of a possible chance to add to their edge. Clay Hensley walked three batters in the inning and also pegged Mike Baxter with a pitch, but Jason Bay's base-running gaffe and a sparkling defensive play by second baseman Ryan Theriot helped the Giants escape.

Daniel Murphy and Bay walked before Baxter was hit by a pitch to fill the bases with nobody out. Thole then hit a ball to first baseman Brett Pill, who threw home for the force out. Posey's throw to first deflected off the left shoulder of Thole, and Thole was ruled out of the baseline and the Mets ended up having runners at first and second with two outs.

"That's a bad rule. Surely you have to come inside that line or you're going to break your leg," Collins said.

New York pulled off a double steal before pinch-hitter Justin Tuner walked to load the bases again. Brad Penny spelled Hensley and Tejada hit a sharp grounder to Theriot, who made a sparkling diving stop and threw to first to keep it a 2-1 game.

Wright singled, Davis grounded a double over third base and Murphy was intentionally walked, all with one out in the ninth to load the bases against Penny. Bay then hit a sharp liner back to Penny, who made the belt-high grab and threw to first for the double play.

Emotional as Penny was after making the double play, the Giants weren't able to turn the defensive momentum into offense in their final at-bat.

Bobby Parnell retired the side in order in the ninth for his fourth save of the season.

Game Notes

The Giants placed infielder Aubrey Huff on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee sprain...Niese snapped a four-start winless skid...Cain has allowed eight homers over his last six starts and has given up 16 overall this year after yielding just nine total last season.

In order to stay afloat in the National League West standings, the division-leading San Francisco Giants hope the addition of Hunter Pence will provide a lift in their march to the postseason.

Pence could make his debut this evening in the third portion of a four-game series versus the New York Mets at AT&T Park and was acquired before Tuesday's trade deadline from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for a trio of players. The Giants parted ways with right fielder Nate Schierholtz, catching prospect Tommy Joseph and minor league pitcher Seth Rosin.

"Walking into the stadium was amazing," Pence said. "There were still fans out there welcoming me. The fans are pumped, and that gets you really excited when you get here. I've been on a plane all day traveling, and it's refreshing."

Pence's numbers are down in 2012 after putting up career statistics in 2011. In 101 games this season, Pence is batting .271 with a .336 on-base percentage and a .447 slugging percentage; this comes after a 2011 split between Houston and Philadelphia in which he batted .314 with a .370 OBP and .502 SLG.

The Giants are one game ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West lead and their division rivals also tapped into the Philadelphia roster on Tuesday, plucking center fielder Shane Victorino. The Giants ended a five-game losing streak with last night's 4-1 win behind Tim Lincecum's seven strong innings. Lincecum is having a down year, but didn't show it in allowing one run and six hits with seven strikeouts and one walk.

Jeremy Affeldt went the last two innings for his second save.

"I thought he had all his pitches going. He was under control too," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Lincecum, a two-time NL Cy Young Award winner. "Great poise out there. It's hard to throw a better pitch than to get him what he did in that at-bat. He pitched like the Timmy we know."

Marco Scutaro provided two hits, an RBI and a run scored, while Ryan Theriot crossed the plate twice for San Francisco, which is 3-5 on a 10-game homestand.

Happy Recap : Game 105 - Mets at Reds - Mets hold on for the win

Final Score: New York 10, Cincinnati 9

Once again, Carlos Beltran's bat was not missed in the middle of the New York lineup.

On the day Beltran officially left the Mets in a trade with the San Francisco Giants, Lucas Duda and Jason Bay each hit three-run doubles in a 10-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds to complete a four-game sweep at Great American Ball Park.

The Mets banged out 11 hits, six for extra bases, in Wednesday's 8-2 win when the Beltran deal was first announced, and on Thursday were even more potent with 14 hits, although 11 were singles.

Bay finished 3-for-4 and Duda was 2-for-4, while David Wright and Angel Pagan each had three hits for New York, which built a 9-3 cushion after five innings and had to withstand a huge Cincinnati comeback.

The offense made a winner of Chris Capuano (9-10) for the first time since July 4. He had lost three straight starts and didn't pitch particularly well on Thursday, allowing six runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Cincinnati starter Homer Bailey (5-5) entered the contest with wins in his first two starts following the All-Star break. He had surrendered just three runs in 13 1/3 innings of those two outings, but on Thursday was roughed up for nine runs on 12 hits in four-plus innings.

Miguel Cairo belted a pinch-hit, three-run homer for the Reds, who had won three of four before the Mets reached town. Joey Votto doubled in a run and clubbed a solo homer, as 10 of Cincinnati's 13 hits went for extra bases.

"It's tough to get swept four games in your own park," said Reds manager Dusty Baker. "They were hitting the ball a ton over there. They didn't miss any balls. They were hitting line drives."

New York erased a 2-1 deficit with four in the fourth. Daniel Murphy led off with a walk, Wright singled and Pagan reached on a bunt base hit to load the bases. After Bay struck out, Duda doubled into the right field corner to clear the bases and scored on a single to center by Josh Thole for a 5-2 edge.

The Reds got one back in the bottom of the inning when Todd Frazier doubled with two outs and raced home on a base hit by Bailey, but the pitcher couldn't get an out in the fifth when he went back out the mound.

Justin Turner led off with a base hit and Murphy drew a walk before another single by Wright loaded the bases. Pagan then knocked in one with a base hit and Bay followed with a double to chase home all three runners for a 9-3 cushion, ending Bailey's disastrous day.
