Preview: Game 107
Philadelphia Phillies (46-60) at New York Mets (51-55)

Probable Pitchers:
Cole Hamels (5-5, 2.72 ERA) vs Dillon Gee (4-3, 3.49 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - 710 WOR AM - First Pitch: 7:10 PM

The New York Mets have been swinging hot bats during a positive stretch at Citi Field, though they might have a difficult time continuing that trend against one of the NL's top pitchers.

As the Mets go for their longest home winning streak in four years Tuesday night, Philadelphia's Cole Hamels hopes to keep showing the Phillies why they might be better off holding on to him through the trade deadline.

New York (51-55) has averaged 5.9 runs while winning eight of nine at home, scoring four in the first inning and three in the fifth off A.J. Burnett in Monday's 7-1 win to open this three-game set.

Travis d'Arnaud had a three-run homer and two doubles to lead the onslaught. Lucas Duda added an RBI single and is hitting .354 with 13 RBIs in his last 15 home games.

New York, however, could have a tougher time with Hamels as it looks to win five straight home games for the first time since a nine-game run from May 22-June 8, 2010.

Hamels (5-5, 2.72 ERA) ranks ninth in the NL in ERA, including a 1.74 mark over his last 11 starts as he's limited opponents to three runs or less in each. He won a second straight outing for the first time this season Thursday, allowing one run and striking out 10 over eight innings in a 2-1 victory over San Francisco.

Hamels is 7-14 with a 4.38 ERA in 29 career starts against the Mets as he meets them for the fourth time in 2014. He allowed a season high six runs over 4 2/3 innings in a 6-1 loss April 29, then did not factor in the decision in May and June starts when he gave up one earned run over seven innings in each with a combined 18 strikeouts as Philadelphia lost both.

Daniel Murphy is hitting .386 lifetime off Hamels, going 5 for 10 with two doubles this season.

New York's Dillon Gee (4-3, 3.49) hopes to regroup after giving up a season-high six runs over five innings in Thursday's 9-1 loss at Milwaukee. He's 1-2 with a 5.82 ERA in three starts after missing two months with a strained right lat.

The right-hander is 3-3 with a 6.71 ERA in 10 career starts against the Phillies. In his only meeting this season, he surrendered three runs over six innings before the bullpen blew a one-run lead in a 5-4 home loss May 10.

Jimmy Rollins went 2 for 3 with a home run off Gee in that contest and is 11 for 22 lifetime in the matchup.

Ryan Howard is 9 for 18 off Gee with six home runs -- twice as many as any other player against him -- but went 0 for 5 with an error Monday. He was 7 for 19 with a home run in his previous four games.

Former Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd is batting .362 in his last 10 games after Monday's four-hit effort. Carlos Ruiz also had four hits, leaving him 8 for 16 since missing nearly a month with a concussion.

Eric Young's first home run as a New York Met came at a crucial time.

His two-run homer in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Mets to a 4-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals in the opener of a three-game interleague series at Citi Field.

With Luis Mendoza (2-6) pitching for the Royals, Omar Quintanilla walked with one out. After Justin Turner popped out, Young clubbed a 3-1 fastball over the right-field wall.

"I couldn't wait to get to home plate to see my teammates," Young said. "It was an awesome feeling."

Carlos Torres (2-2) pitched two scoreless innings to pick up the win. Starter Dillon Gee allowed just one run on three hits and a pair of walks over seven- plus innings but ended up with a no-decision.

David Wright also hit a two-run home run, the 220th of his career, tying Mike Piazza for second all-time in franchise history. However, bad news struck for him in the bottom of the 10th. While reaching first on an infield single, he pulled his right hamstring and exited the game.

Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain had an RBI apiece for Kansas City, which was looking for its first 10-game winning streak since winning 14 in a row in 1994.

The Mets held on to a 2-0 lead through the first seven innings, but faced trouble in the eighth.

Gee walked Cain to start the inning and was immediately replaced by Scott Rice, who hit Alex Gordon with a pitch and got Eric Hosmer to ground into a fielder's choice.

LaTroy Hawkins came in relief with runners at the corners and Perez grounded into a fielder's choice to third, allowing Cain to score.

David Aardsma pitched the ninth for the Mets. He allowed a leadoff double to pinch-hitter Miguel Tejada and walked Alcides Escobar. Both runners advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Elliot Johnson, and pinch-hitter Billy Butler was intentionally walked, loading the bases.

Cain then hit a sacrifice fly to center, plating Tejada, and tying the game at 2-2.

Pedro Feliciano, making his first major league appearance since 2010, replaced Aardsma and got Gordon to ground out, stopping the rally.

In the bottom of the ninth, Ike Davis ripped a leadoff double to right. Andrew Brown came in as a pinch-runner and advanced to third off Quintanilla's sacrifice bunt. Pinch-hitter Justin Turner struck out and Young was intentionally walked. Juan Lagares hit a grounder towards second to send the game to extra innings.

In the Mets' 10th, Wright hit an infield single and Marlon Byrd walked. However, Daniel Murphy grounded into a fielder's choice and a double play by John Buck ended the frame.

Wright's two-run shot to left came with two outs in the first. Lagares knocked a one-out single to right prior to the homer.

The Mets had a chance to extend their lead in the fourth, loading the bases with two outs. However, Lagares flew out to right, ending the inning.

Kansas City had an opportunity to score in the seventh. David Lough hit a one- out single up the middle and stole second. With two outs, Lough advanced to third as Johnson reached first on a fielding error by Davis. However, after Johnson stole second, Jarrod Dyson flew out to left.

"We battled," Butler said. "We matched them blow for blow."

Game Notes

Prior to the game, Feliciano was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and pitcher Josh Edgin was placed on the 15-day disabled list .... Coming into the game, these teams split six all-time matchups but hadn't met since 2004 ... Young entered the game having just one home run this season, which came on May 14. He was traded to the Mets on June 18 ... Davis went 3-for-3. He is hitting .269 since being recalled from Las Vegas on July 5 ... Since June 20 of last season, Gee has a 2.10 ERA at home ... The Mets are 9-2 this season in interleague play and are 72-65 since 2005, the best record of any NL team.

Right-hander Dillon Gee can get back to the .500 mark on Friday night when the New York Mets return to Citi Field to host the Kansas City Royals in the opener of a three-game interleague series.

The 27-year-old Texan began the season at 0-3 and fell as far as 2-6 before ultimately pulling even at 7-7 with a 4-2 defeat of the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 14 at PNC Park.

Gee allowed an unearned run on five hits in 6 2/3 innings of that game, which pared his earned run average from 4.60 to 4.32.

He trimmed it further by tossing seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against Atlanta on July 22 - a 2-1 loss by the Mets - but subsequently allowed four runs in seven innings of a 4-1 loss at Washington in his last outing on July 27.

Gee has never faced the Royals.

He'll face Kansas City's Wade Davis, who'll again try to stave off double- digit losses for the third time in his career.

Davis, a third-round pick of Tampa Bay in 2004, went 12-10 and 11-10 with the Rays in 2010 and 2011 before ultimately heading to the Royals in a seven- player trade in December.

He dropped four straight starts between June 29 and July 22 to fall to 4-9 on the season, but bounced back with a 1-0 defeat of the Chicago White Sox on July 27 - allowing four hits in 7 1/3 scoreless innings.

Recap: Game 107 - Mets at Padres - Dickey, Mets Lose 3-1

Petco Park (San Diego, CA)
N.Y. Mets (52-55)000100000191
San Diego (45-63) «00000120x340
W: C. Richard (8-11) L: R. Dickey (14-3)
S: H. Street (18)
HR: NYM - None   SD - None

Yonder Alonso tallied San Diego's first hit off R.A. Dickey in the fifth and then provided the key one off him in the seventh to put the Padres over the top.

Alonso had two of San Diego's four hits against the knuckleballer Dickey, including the go-ahead double in the seventh, as the Padres rallied past the New York Mets, 3-1, in the opener of a three-game set.

Clayton Richard (8-11) surrendered a run on eight hits and two walks for the Padres, who had dropped five of their previous six coming in.

Huston Street recorded the final four outs to notch his 18th save of the year.

Dickey (14-3) fanned nine, but allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and three walks in seven innings for the Mets, who had won four of five heading in.

The contest was tied 1-1 going into the seventh before the Padres surged ahead.

Carlos Quentin slapped a one-out single and Alonso came up next and lofted a fly ball to right-center field. Scott Hairston was unable to make the sliding catch and Quentin, running hard all of the way from first, scored after the 6-foot-2, 235 pounder barreled into catcher Josh Thole at the plate and knocked the ball free.

"Carlos went in there with the intent to score," Padres manager Bud Black said.

John Baker's looping single into left brought home Alonso for a 3-1 Padres margin.

Earlier, Ronny Cedeno's RBI single in the fourth gave the Mets a 1-0 lead.

Alonso's one-out base hit in the fifth broke up Dickey's no-hitter, but the home team didn't need a hit to tie the game in the sixth.

Everth Cabrera worked a leadoff walk, scampered to second on Richard's sacrifice bunt, swiped third and scored on Chris Denorfia's sacrifice fly to right, knotting the game at 1-1.

Game Notes

Alonso is 8-for-20 (.400) over his last four games with two RBI and three runs scored...Street extended his scoreless innings streak to 17 1/3 frames. He last allowed a run to the Oakland A's on June 17...Cabrera is a perfect 19- for-19 in stolen base attempts this year...San Diego moved to 39-0 when leading after eight...San Diego has won eight of its last 10 home games.

Preview: Game 107 - Mets at Padres - Dickey Looking to Keep Mets Going

New York Mets (52-54) at San Diego Padres (44-63) 10:05 PM ET
SeasonRd/HmLast StartLast 3 App
R. Dickey (R) 21 14-2 2.836.08-12.807/29@ARIW7.0401-114.03.86
C. Richard (L) 22 7-11 4.145.24-43.717/29@MIAND5.1521-118.26.27

With a wide gulf separating them from the top of the NL East, the New York Mets need R.A. Dickey pitching at the top of his game if they harbor any hopes of climbing back into contention.

Dickey's most recent outing was quite encouraging.

The Mets will hand the ball to the knuckleballer Friday in the opener of a three-game road series against the San Diego Padres.

Dickey (14-2, 2.83 ERA) was nearly unhittable for much of the season's first half and earned a spot on the All-Star team, but his knuckler fluttered back to earth as he went 1-1 with a 6.49 ERA in his first six appearances of July.

He returned to All-Star form Sunday at Arizona, allowing an unearned run and four hits while striking out eight through seven innings of work in a 5-1 victory.

Dickey pitched similarly well in a 2-0 home win over the Padres on May 27, striking out 10 and limiting San Diego to three hits in 7 1-3 innings.

"When you don't see it often, it's different," San Diego manager Bud Black told his team's official website after that contest. "You really can't simulate it or prepare for it in BP. He was throwing strikes and getting a lot of called strikes. He kept pumping the strike zone with the knuckleball. It was dancing."

Dickey has been dominant on the road all year, going 7-0 with a 1.75 ERA in his last eight starts away from home. His only road loss came on April 18 at Atlanta.

Recap : Game 107 - Mets at Nationals - Werth's HR in the first the difference

Final Score: Washington 3, New York 0

The Nationals snapped their six-game losing streak with a replacement starter.

Now, they might lose him as well.

Yunesky Maya got the start after fellow right-hander Jason Marquis was traded to Arizona earlier Saturday and threw 5 1/3 shutout innings for his first MLB win as Washington blanked the New York Mets, 3-0.

Maya (1-1) allowed just five hits, without any strikeouts or walks, but he strained his back running the bases and was taken out with two runners on in the sixth.

"I imagine he'll have to go on the [disabled list]," said Nationals manager Davey Johnson.

Jayson Werth hit a three-run homer in the first inning off Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (5-9) and the Nationals pitching kept the New York bats silent the rest of the way.

Ross Detwiler, Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen finished the shutout for Maya. Storen, the subject of simmering trade rumors, worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth for his 26th save.

David Wright, Jason Bay and Josh Thole had two hits apiece for the Mets, who had their five-game winning streak snapped.

  4. Wright-3B
  5. Pagan-CF
  6. Bay-LF

  8. Thole-C
  9. Dickey-RHP

Preview : Game 107 - Mets at Nationals - Mets scored 34 Runs in their last 4 Games

New York Mets (55-51) at Washington Nationals (49-56), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - R.A. Dickey (5-8, 3.74) Washington - Jason Marquis (8-5, 3.95)

Going forward, the offense for the New York Mets hasn't seemed to lose a beat minus Carlos Beltran.

On Thursday, the Mets dealt Beltran to the San Francisco Giants. Despite losing their star right fielder the Mets have been putting up runs in bunches.

Lucas Duda, who replaced Beltran in right field, has five RBI in his last three games. He drove in one last night, part of an 8-5 victory over the Nationals to start this three-game series. It marked the fifth straight victory for the Mets, one off a season-high set on April 21-27.

Although the Mets also traded away closer Francisco Rodriguez at the All-Star break, New York has flickering hopes of actually making the postseason. It enters today 6 1/2 games behind Atlanta for the wild card lead with Arizona, St. Louis and the Pirates all in between.

Judging by the way their offense has played lately, with 34 runs in their last four games, it's not impossible to think the Mets could pull off an unlikely run to the postseason.

"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."

If they are to extend their winning streak, the Mets will need another decent effort from knuckleball specialist R.A. Dickey. He limited the Reds to a pair of runs over 6 2/3 innings on Monday.
