Happy Recap: Game 11 - Mets (7) at Angels (6) (13th Inning) - Mets Lose Lead in 9th, But Still Gain Win in 13th


New York

Los Angeles

W: J. Lannan (1-0) L: M. Shoemaker (0-1)
HR: NYM - L. Duda (3),A. Recker (1)   LAA - C. Iannetta (1),C. Cowgill (1),R. Ibanez (2)


Anthony Recker's solo home run in the 13th inning sent the New York Mets past the LA Angels of Anaheim, 7-6, on Saturday.

Raul Ibanez forced extra innings for the second straight night with a three- run blast off Jose Valverde in the ninth, but the rest of the Mets' bullpen kept the Angels hitless over the final four innings.

John Lannan (1-0) retired the last six Angels hitters and earned the win a day after New York dropped the opener of this three-game interleague set, 5-4, in 11 innings.

Matt Shoemaker (0-1), who worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the 12th, stayed on the hill the next frame and grooved a high fastball to Recker that was tomahawked into the left-field seats for the game-deciding blast.

Omar Quintanilla's two-out, two-run single off Kevin Jepsen in the away ninth gave the Mets some breathing room at 6-3, and Valverde was on the verge of closing out the win after retiring retired Albert Pujols and Howie Kendrick.

Valverde had David Freese in a 2-2 count, but Freese kept the inning alive with a base hit up the middle. Erick Aybar took a 3-1 pitch off the plate to set the stage for Ibanez, and the 41-year-old slugger crushed a middle-in fastball deep into the right-field seats to send the home fans into a frenzy.

Ibanez's homer wasted a quality start from Jon Niese, who lasted 7 1/3 innings and gave up six hits and three runs -- two on solo homers by Chris Iannetta and Collin Cowgill.

Recker also had a two-run single for the Mets, while Quintanilla had three of the club's 11 hits.

Jered Weaver was on cruise control after surrendering a solo home run to Lucas Duda in the second inning, but New York rallied against the right-hander with two outs in the seventh.

Duda singled to put runners on the corners with two outs, and Juan Lagares chased Weaver with an RBI single to left. Recker greeted Fernando Salas with a blooper to center that fell in front of a diving Mike Trout, and Duda and Lagares came across to give the Mets their first lead.

Weaver was charged with four runs despite allowing only three hits. He issued four walks and was on the verge of falling to 0-3 for the first time in his nine-year career before Ibanez turned his outing into a no-decision.

Niese gave up an RBI single to Pujols in the first inning and served up homers to Iannetta and Cowgill in the fifth and sixth, respectively. Cowgill found the rocks beyond the wall in left-center, while Cowgill, the Mets' starting center fielder on Opening Day last year, sent one into the left-field seats.

Mets Notes - The Mets have held a lead at some point in 10 of their 11 games this season ... Old Friend Collin Cowgill finished with two hits and two runs scored and threw a runner out at home from left field in the first inning ...

TV - PIX 11 - Radio - WOR 710 AM - 9:05PM


The New York Mets (4-6) look to bounce back against the Anaheim Angels (5-5) Tonight. The Mets will be facing Jered Weaver who has been horrendous of late. Only 3 current Mets have faced him including Curtis Granderson, who is batting .370 (27 AB's) Off Weaver with 5 HR's.  Weaver has been proned to the long ball giving up 4 this season already.

The Mets will counter with Jon Niese, who has pitched well after having a disturbing spring training.  First time out, Hard luck loser Niese pitched 5.2 innings, giving up 6 hits, 2 earned runs, 1 walk, while striking out 4. Jon has faced the Angels before, he is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA vs Anaheim. The current team that has faced him are batting collectively .208 vs Niese with 2 HR's (Albert Pujols / Raul Ibanez). Niese also has struck out 11 of them as well.

Lets see if the Mets can hammer some long balls off Weaver and hopefully Niese can keep improving on what he has done already, LGM!

Happy Recap: Game 11 - Mets (4) at Twins (2) - Harvey Masterful Again, Byrd hits his first HR

N.Y. Mets (7-4)«0000400004100
Minnesota (4-7)000000101240

W: M. Harvey (3-0) L: S. Diamond (0-1) S: B. Parnell (1)
HR: NYM - M. Byrd (1)   MIN - J. Morneau (1)

It must be the cold.......Nah,  it's just Matt Harvey who tossed eight strong innings of two-hit ball and Marlon Byrd hit a solo homer during a four-run fifth inning, as the New York Mets downed the slumping Minnesota Twins, 4-2, Saturday in the middle test of a three-game interleague set.

Harvey didn't allow a hit until the seventh inning en route to giving up one run, striking out six and walking two for the Mets, who have won two straight and five of their last seven.

  • Harvey (3-0, 0.82 ERA) became the third pitcher since the end of World War II to open a season with three straight starts of seven-plus innings and three or fewer hits allowed, joining Nolan Ryan and Jim Rooker, according to ESPN Stats & Information. 

The 24-year-old righty threw 107 pitches and had five 1-2-3 innings. He has allowed just two earned runs and six hits over 22 innings through his first three starts this season.

"After the sixth inning, I sat down in the dugout and I realized it was a possibility," Harvey said of the possibility for a no-hitter. "But I knew the seventh was going to be toughest inning for me."

Daniel Murphy had two hits and an RBI, David Wright supplied one hit and drove in a run and Justin Turner went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the victory.

Justin Morneau hit a solo home run in the seventh to give the Twins their first hit and run. Minnesota, which has dropped five straight, saw starter Scott Diamond (0-1) give up four runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in his first start of the year after recovering from elbow surgery.

Harvey had failed to give up a hit through six-plus innings, until the seventh. After the righty retired the first two batters of the frame, Morneau launched his 2-2 offering down the right-field line and the ball plunked off the foul pole to give the Twins their first hit and make it 4-1.

Mets reliever Bobby Parnell gave up one run in the ninth, a double from Josh Wilingham that scored Joe Mauer, but picked up the team's first save of the year by retiring the next two batters.

"Our mentality was to attack early," Twins second baseman Brian Dozier said. "I knew from facing him in the Minor Leagues he comes at you with his fastball, but he had all three pitches working today."

Diamond pitched well through the first four innings, though he ran into some trouble in the fifth. Byrd smacked a solo shot to left to make it 1-0. Turner hit a single up the middle and Ruben Tejada moved him to third with a double to left. Collin Cowgill hit a swinging bunt to third and Minnesota's Trevor Plouffe bobbled the exchange allowing Turner to score and make it 2-0.

Murphy lined a single to center for the fifth straight hit of the inning which plated Tejeda and made it 3-0. It was the last batter Diamond faced.

Josh Roenicke relieved Diamond and Wright took advantage. Wright hit a line drive off of Roenicke's foot and the ball corralled to third base, but Wright reached easily and Cowgill scored to make it 4-0.

"You saw in the first couple innings he had no-hit stuff," Byrd said. "In the outfield you're just hoping anything that comes out there, you're going to go get."

Game Notes

Harvey is 5-3 in eight career road starts ... Minnesota activated Diamond off the disabled list on Saturday and made room on the roster by optioning pitcher Liam Hendriks to Triple-A Rochester ... The Mets have homered in each of their 11 games this season ... Harvey became the first Mets pitcher since Mike Pelfrey (2010) to win his first three starts of the season ... New York catcher John Buck had homered in four straight games, but finished 0-for-4 ... Buck had also totaled 19 RBI through the first 11 games of the season becoming only the fourth player in 92 years with such a total. Chris Davis (2012), Lou Gehrig (1927) and Manny Ramirez (1999) also drove in 19 runs through the first 10 games of the season.

Right-hander Matt Harvey makes the third start of his first full season in the major leagues on Saturday when the New York Mets visit the Minnesota Twins in the middle test of a three-game interleague series at Target Field.

Harvey, who turned 24 at the end of March, was drafted in the seventh round by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in 2007 but did not sign. He was re-selected as the No. 7 overall pick of the 2010 draft by the Mets.

He reached the majors two years later and was 3-5 in 10 starts while posting a stingy 2.73 earned run average in 59 1/3 innings.

His initial two starts of 2013 have been successful, yielding an 8-4 defeat of the San Diego Padres on April 3 and a 7-2 win obver the Philadelphia Phillies five days later.

Opponents have managed just one run - and a .093 batting average - in 14 combined innings, in which Harvey has struck out 19 batters and walked only four.

Harvey, who has never faced the Twins, is 4-3 in seven career road starts.

Minnesota counters with Canadian-born lefty Scott Diamond, who makes his first start of the year after recovering from surgery on his elbow.

Diamond won a career-best 12 games in 27 starts for the Twins in 2012 in his first prolonged experience in the majors. He was 1-5 in seven starts a year earlier while pitching 39 innings.

The Twins placed him on the 15-day disabled list as of March 22 and he allowed four runs on six hits in five innings of a rehabilitation start at Single-A Fort Myers on April 7.

Recap: Spring Training Game 11 - Venezuela at Mets - Niese Hit Hard, Byrd and Cowgill shine in loss

Final Score: Venezuela 14, NY Mets 10

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with two homers and three RBI as Venezuela recorded 20 hits to down the New York Mets, 14-10, on Wednesday in its tune up for the World Baseball Classic.

Gerardo Parra added a three-run homer and had four RBI, Omar Infante went 2- for-4 and plated three runs, while Salvador Perez contributed three hits and an RBI for Venezuela, which will begin round-robin play against the Dominican Republic on Thursday.

Starter Ramon Ramirez pitched well and didn't give up a hit over three innings, but the Mets put up seven runs in the fifth -- tagging Wil Ledezma for four runs before scoring three against Romulo Sanchez.

New York starter Jon Niese only lasted 2 1/3 innings, surrendering four runs on six hits. Marlon Byrd had a three-run homer and Colin Cowgill went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in the setback.

HR: NYM - None   ATL - J. Francisco (1)

Rookie Tyler Pastornicky highlighted a five-run second inning with a two-run double and the Atlanta Braves snapped their skid against the New York Mets with a 9-3 victory Tuesday night at Turner Field.

Atlanta starter Randall Delgado (2-0) pitched in and out of trouble while allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings.

The Braves had dropped five in a row to their NL East rivals, including the opener of this three-game set on Monday -- a 6-1 setback that halted Atlanta's winning streak at five games.

The Mets posted a season-opening three-game sweep at Citi Field and also took the final meeting of 2011. But the Braves roughed up Johan Santana (0-2) in the shortest outing of his career.

Santana was tagged for six runs -- four earned -- on four hits and one walk. The left-hander threw 55 pitches (35 for strikes) and recorded only four outs.

Preview - Game 11 - Mets at Braves - Mets try for six in a row vs Braves

New York Mets (7-3) at Atlanta Braves (5-5), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Johan Santana (0-1, 0.90) Atlanta - Randall Delgado (1-0, 3.60)

After a pair of impressive outings, New York Mets manager Terry Collins appears ready to take the chains off Johan Santana.

A rainy forecast, however, could ultimately end up restricting the two-time Cy Young award winner.

The Mets try to extend their winning streak over the Atlanta Braves to six for the first time in 22 seasons as the teams continue a three-game set Tuesday night at Turner Field.

Santana (0-1 0.90 ERA) missed all of last season due to surgery on his throwing shoulder, but has looked strong early in 2012. After limiting the Braves (5-5) to two hits over five innings of a 1-0 win opening day, the left-hander gave up one run and five hits and struck out eight while pitching into the sixth of Wednesday's 4-0 loss to Washington. Santana threw 99 pitches - 15 more than he threw against Atlanta.

"It was a tough challenge out there, but it was good to see that I was able to go beyond 80 pitches, and able to go out there without any problems," he told the team's official website. "Unfortunately we didn't win, but as far as how I'm doing, I think I'm making progress."

While Santana will be allowed to throw as many as 115 pitches Tuesday, he may run into a battle with the elements. Storms are expected in the downtown Atlanta area starting in the late afternoon.

"We're more concerned (Tuesday) with weather than we are with anything else," Collins said. "What I want to do is hopefully get some innings out of him. A lot of it depends upon how he's done."

Dillon Gee threw seven strong innings in Monday's series opener as the Mets snapped Atlanta's five-game winning streak with a 6-1 victory. Ike Davis hit a three-run homer for his second long ball in as many days and Jason Bay also went deep after sitting out Sunday due to a jammed right finger.

The Mets (7-3) have compiled a 1.75 ERA while winning all four matchups with Atlanta this season. New York, which also took the final meeting of 2011, hasn't defeated the Braves six straight times since July 20, 1989-April 25, 1990.

Recap: Spring Training Game 11 - Prince Homers, Mets Lose 7-6

Final Score: Detroit 7, Mets 6

Prince Fielder homered and had three hits and the Detroit Tigers beat the New York Mets 7-6 in 10 innings on Wednesday.

Fielder’s two-run homer came off Mets starter Dillon Gee in the fourth inning. Delmon Young had two hits for the Tigers, including a two-run single in a four-run fifth—all unearned—against Mets left-hander Chuck James.

Gee struck out five in four innings in his third spring start.

Detroit starter Max Scherzer did not get through the Mets’ four-run third. After giving up a hit and two walks and hitting Zach Lutz with a pitch, Scherzer was replaced by Casey Crosby.

Daniel Schlereth pitched two innings of shutout relief for the win. Quintin Berry drove in Andy Dirks with the winning run in the 10th inning.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 11 - Rockies at Mets

Citi Field at NightImage via Wikipedia
Colorado Rockies (7-2) at New York Mets (4-6), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Colorado - Esmil Rogers (1-0, 1.23) New York - Jon Niese (0-1, 6.55)

Perhaps a rain delay was the only thing that could cool down the Colorado Rockies. The New York Mets certainly hope so.

After last night's postponement, the Rockies take aim at a fourth straight victory and their best 10-game start to a season in franchise history this evening at Citi Field.

The Rockies won the opener of this series on Monday by a 7-6 margin, going ahead for good on Troy Tulowitzki's two-run homer in the eighth inning. It came right after Carlos Gonzalez plated a run on a fielder's choice grounder, and the three runs were big after New York came back with two runs in the bottom of the frame on David Wright's homer and an RBI single by Ike Davis.

"We did a good job of staying in the ballgame, keeping it close. When we had our chance to take over we did," said Tulowitzki, who along with Gonzalez finished with three RBI.

This game will stay a four-game series despite last night's postponement, with the two clubs set to play a single-admission doubleheader on Thursday. The first game will start at 12:10 p.m.

Monday's win improved Colorado to 7-2, matching the 1995 and '97 clubs for the best start in club history. Both of those previous teams lost their 10th game of the season.

Colorado's Esmil Rogers and Jon Niese of New York were set to start last night's game, but both will instead go tonight.

Rogers was excellent in his season debut in Pittsburgh last Thursday. He gave up just a run on four hits over 7 1/3 innings to get the win, striking out seven and retiring 18 in a row at one point in just his 10th big league start.

"I felt great with all of my pitches," said the right-handed Rogers.

The 25-year-old has never started against the Mets, but has faced them twice in relief. He has given up a run and two hits over three innings in that span.

With the Mets having lost five of six, they will hope that Niese can put a horrid outing last time out behind him.

The 24-year-old southpaw was decent in his season debut on April 2 in which he held the Marlins to a pair of runs over seven innings of a no-decision, but he was then tagged for six runs on eight hits over four innings of an 11-0 loss in Philadelphia on Thursday.

Niese, whose earned run average ballooned to 6.55, has never beaten the Rockies, going 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA in three starts.

These two clubs split their six meetings a season ago, with the Mets winning two of three at home.
