Happy Recap: Game 106 - Phillies (1) at Mets (7) - Colon, d'Arnaud Shine in win



New York

W: B. Colon (10-8) L: A. Burnett (6-10)
HR: PHI - None   NYM - T. d'Arnaud (7)


Bartolo Colon pitched into the eighth inning and Travis d'Arnaud hit a three-run home run as the New York Mets thumped the Philadelphia Phillies, 7-1, in the opener of a three-game series.

Colon (10-8) gave up 10 hits and a run in 7 2/3 innings, striking out six while walking one to win his second straight start.

Juan Lagares drove in two, while Lucas Duda scored twice for the Mets, who have won five of their last seven.

Carlos Ruiz was the lone bright spot for the Phillies as he went 4-for-4 with an RBI as the team fell for the sixth time in their past nine games. A.J. Burnett (6-10) was banged up for all seven runs on eight hits in five innings of work.

The Mets jumped all over Burnett in the first inning and it got started with a walk from Curtis Granderson and he scored when Daniel Murphy followed with a double. Two batters later, Duda scored Murphy. Following a double from d'Arnaud that put men on second and third, Lagares doubled home both runners for a 4-0 lead.

The Phillies had baserunners in each of the first four innings, including leaving men at the corners in the third, but were unable to push any across.

In the fifth, Duda walked with two outs and Chris Young followed with a single before d'Arnaud launched a pitch over the left field wall for a 7-0 lead.

The Phillies left the bases loaded in the sixth as Cody Asche struck out to end the frame.

Ruiz's RBI double in the eighth inning broke up Colon's shutout attempt.

Game Notes

New York reliever Dana Eveland was pulled in the ninth inning after getting hit in the left elbow with a line drive off the bat of Ben Revere ... Colon improved to 3-2 in seven career starts against the Phillies ... Burnett fell to 5-7 in 22 career starts against the Mets ... The Phillies stranded 12 men as the team was 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

Probable Pitchers:
A.J. Burnett (6-9, 3.86 ERA) vs Bartolo Colon (9-8, 4.03 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch: 7:10 PM

Former teammates with the New York Yankees in 2011, Bartolo Colon and A.J. Burnett could both be pitching elsewhere soon since the Mets (50-55) and Phillies (46-59) are the NL East's worst teams leading up to the July 31 trade deadline.

Colon (9-8, 4.03 ERA), who agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal in the offseason, gave up two runs over 7 1/3 innings Wednesday to win for the first time in five outings in a 3-2 victory at Seattle.

Burnett (6-9, 3.86) signed a deal with Philadelphia in the offseason that guarantees him $22.5 million over two seasons. He was brilliant in his last outing with eight scoreless innings in Wednesday's 3-1 home loss to San Francisco.

Both pitchers have proved their durability by leading their respective teams in innings. The 41-year-old Colon has logged 134, while the 37-year-old Burnett has worked 144 2/3 to rank him among the NL's best.

Colon won his lone 2014 start against the Phillies on June 2, surrendering two runs in seven innings in an 11-2 rout at Citizens Bank Park. He has pitched at least seven innings in his last seven outings at home.

Burnett's teams have won his last five starts against New York. He's 3-0 with a 2.73 ERA over that stretch after giving up five runs in seven innings May 30 in a 6-5, 14-inning victory at home.

New York, which last played at home July 13, capped a 5-5 trip with Sunday's 2-0 victory at Milwaukee to split a four-game set. The Mets took two of three in Seattle in their previous series.

Lucas Duda's two-run homer was all the offense the Mets needed. Duda has homered four times in his last six games.

Duda has a double in two at-bats versus Burnett, who has limited Mets star David Wright to three hits in 24 at-bats with 11 strikeouts.

Philadelphia slugger Ryan Howard hit a two-run homer in Sunday's 4-2 win over Arizona. He is 3 for 8 since returning to the lineup after being benched for three games by manager Ryne Sandberg.

Howard is 0 for 2 against Colon this year after homering twice in two at-bats in the only previous meeting between the two in 2008.

The Mets have won six of nine against the Phillies.

Recap: Game 106 - Mets (0) at Marlins (3) - Harvey not enough to stop Marlins

N.Y. Mets (48-58)000000000061
Miami (42-65)«00000300x360
W: T. Koehler (3-6) L: M. Harvey (8-3) S: S. Cishek (23)
HR: NYM - None   MIA - None


Donovan Solano chased Matt Harvey from the game with a single that drove in two runs in the sixth inning, helping the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets, 3-0, in the finale of a four-game series.

Logan Morrison hit an RBI single to account for Miami's other run.

Tom Koehler (3-6) tossed six innings for the Marlins, allowing five hits and five walks.

Matt Harvey (8-3) allowed only one hit before running into trouble in the sixth inning, where he gave up all three runs. He struck out eight in 5 2/3 innings. Miami's offense gave Harvey his first earned run since the All-Star break, snapping a streak of 20 2/3 innings.

"My job is to go out and put up zeroes, and obviously I didn't do that today," Harvey said. "I'm not happy about it."

Justin Turner went 2-for-4 for the Mets. who have only won two times in their last seven games.

Steve Cishek pitched the ninth inning for his 23rd save of the season.

The Mets had their chances in the game, but failed to convert. They loaded the bases in the third inning and had a man on third with one out in the fourth, but could not score a run. They finished the game 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.

"It was a battle for him too," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said of Koehler. "He pitched out of quite a few jams."

Jake Marisnick made a great diving catch in center field to rob Marlon Byrd of a base hit and then doubled David Wright off first to end a New York threat in the fifth inning.

Juan Pierre, who entered the game as the pinch-hitter for Koehler, and Christian Yelich started off the sixth inning with a pair of singles to place men at first and third. Morrison drove a two-out single to right to bring Pierre home for the first run. Harvey then hit Ed Lucas on the left wrist to load the bases before Solano blooped a single to right to score Yelich and Morrison.

Game Notes

Marlins' pitchers recorded the lowest July ERA in club history with 3.24 over 26 games ... Miami's bullpen pitched 11 2/3 scoreless innings in the series against the Mets.

While the New York Mets appear to have a good chance to take the rubber match with Matt Harvey on the mound, the Miami Marlins have found ways to pull out victories when facing the All-Star.

Harvey and the Mets look to win a series against the lowly Marlins for the first time since the opening week of the season Thursday in Miami.

Following a pair of New York victories, Jake Marisnick hit his first major league home run and Henderson Alvarez pitched into the eighth inning as the Marlins (41-65) bounced back in this four-game set with Wednesday's 3-2 win.

"It felt good," said Marisnick, hitting .179 (5 for 28) in his first eight games before the homer. "It was the first at-bat where I really slowed everything down."

Marisnick and Alvarez were acquired, along with shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, in November's trade that sent Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, John Buck, and Emilio Bonifacio to Toronto.

"I think you realize how good of players we got in that trade and how much those guys are going to be a big part of not only this team this year, but the future," manager Mike Redmond said. "These guys can play."

Happy Recap: Game 106 - Mets at Giants - Mets Run Over Giants 9-1

AT&T Park (San Francisco, CA)
N.Y. Mets (52-54) «4100202009110
San Francisco (56-49)000100000140
W: C. Young (3-5) L: B. Zito (8-8)
HR: NYM - None   SF - None

The New York Mets' speciality this season has been their production with two outs. They added to those totals in Thursday's series finale at AT&T Park, a 9-1 win over the struggling San Francisco Giants.

New York scored eight two-out runs, half of which came in the first inning, giving them 215 for the season. The Mets entered play leading the majors in that category.

The beneficiary of the two-out prowess was Chris Young (3-5). The towering New York right-hander, who concluded July at 0-4 with a 6.00 ERA in five starts, gave up one run on four hits in seven innings.

"The guys set the tone with the runs early and allowed me a lot of room for error," Young said.

Ronny Cedeno collected three hits and tied a career-high with five RBI for New York, which took three of four from San Francisco.

Melky Cabrera finished a home run shy of the cycle while recording three of the Giants' four hits. Barry Zito (8-8) allowed seven runs on six hits and walked three in 4 1/3 innings to absorb the loss.

"We got down early and just couldn't get much going with the bats," said Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

San Francisco has dropped seven of eight, all at home. Despite their recent slide, the Giants still own a half-game lead over second-place Los Angeles in the NL West standings. Arizona, though, is lurking two games back.

The visitors posted a four-spot in the opening frame, loading the bases on consecutive two-out walks and a hit by pitch. Jason Bay singled home a pair and New York plated two more when Cabrera failed to glove Cedeno's fly ball in left. Cedeno was credited with a double on the play.

David Wright singled home Andres Torres, who had hit a two-out double, in the second to make it 5-0.

San Francisco got on the board in the fourth when Cabrera led off with a triple and scored on a sacrifice fly by newcomer Hunter Pence.

The Mets extended their lead with two runs in the fifth. Torres drew a leadoff walk and came around to score after Scott Hairston and Daniel Murphy hit back- to-back one-out singles.

Shane Loux, activated from the 15-day disabled list before the contest, relieved Zito and surrendered a two-out, RBI single to Cedeno.

The New York second baseman added another two-run double in the seventh.

Game Notes

The Giants wrapped up a 3-7 homestand...Loux missed 27 games with a neck strain...San Francisco also activated catcher Hector Sanchez from the 15-day DL. Sanchez, who went 0-for-4 on Thursday, had been sidelined with a left knee sprain since mid-July.

Look for the big guy laying out a women with his back-swing!

Happy Recap : Game 106 - Mets at Nationals - Mets beat up Wang in his debut

Final Score: New York 8, Washington 5

The Mets hammered Chien-Ming Wang for four runs in the first inning Friday, ruining the pitcher's first major league start in more than two years on the way to an 8-5 victory over the Nationals to open a three-game series.

Daniel Murphy and Angel Pagan both delivered RBI singles during New York's first-inning rally as the first five batters of the game reached against Wang, the former 19-game winner who finally returned to the bigs after a recent climb through Washington's farm system.

Jose Reyes doubled and knocked in two runs and Ronny Paulino had three hits, including an RBI double for the Mets, who continued to streak after completing a four-game sweep of the Reds.

"When you drive in runs with two outs you're doing good things," said New York manager Terry Collins. "We're getting some clutch hitting when we need it and when that happens you win games."

Wang (0-1) settled down to pitch well in the second and third innings before giving up two more runs in the fourth, his last frame. He allowed eight hits and a walk while striking out two. Two of the six runs he gave up were unearned.

"I was pleased with his delivery tonight," said Washington manager Davey Johnson about Wang. "It looked like for a little while he was getting the ball too low, but he recovered and worked through the start."

Mets rookie Dillon Gee (10-3) earned the win after yielding three runs -- two earned -- on four hits in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out five, walked four and helped himself with an RBI single off Wang.

Preview : Game 106 - Mets at Nationals - The Return of Ex-Yankees' Star , Chien-Ming Wang

New York Mets (54-51) at Washington Nationals (49-55), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Dillon Gee (9-3, 3.75) Washington - Chien-Ming Wang (0-0, 0.00)

Chien-Ming Wang returns to a major league hill for the first time since 2009 this evening when the Washington Nationals open a three- game series against the New York Mets at Nationals Park.

After winning 19 games in 2006 and '07, Wang's once promising career was derailed by injuries. In fact he has won just nine times in 27 appearances since the start of the 2008 campaign.

He joined the Nationals before last season on a one-year deal, but did not pitch for them. Wang then re-signed with Washington this offseason.

Wang began a rehab assignment with Single-A Hagerstown on June 27 and pitched for Potomac on July 2, Double-A Harrisburg on July 7 and July 14 and Triple-A Syracuse on July 19.

He allowed five runs in five innings at Syracuse on July 24 in his final rehab game, striking out five batters and walking one.

Wang has never faced the Mets.
