Happy Recap: Game 110 - Rockies (2) at Mets (3) - Juan Lagares drives in all three runs

Colorado (52-62)000011000260
N.Y. Mets (50-60)«20000001x362

W: S. Atchison (2-0) L: W. Lopez (1-4) S: L. Hawkins (1)
HR: COL - C. Blackmon (2)   NYM - None


Eric Young scored from second on an infield single by Juan Lagares in the eighth inning, as the New York Mets beat the Colorado Rockies, 3-2, in the opener of a three-game set at Citi Field.

Lagares finished 2-for-4 and drove in all three runs for the Mets, who ended a two-game slide and won for the second time in six games.

With the game tied 2-2 in the eighth, Eric Young led off the inning against Wilton Lopez with a single. He moved to second on a one-out fly out by Marlon Byrd and, after Ike Davis was intentionally walked, he scored when Lagares legged out a slow roller to second. Young never stopped as he rounded third. Colorado first baseman Todd Helton threw home but Young slid in before the tag.

LaTroy Hawkins then came on and worked out of trouble in the ninth to earn his first save of the season and just his third save since recording 11 for the Houston Astros in 2009.

Colorado put runners on the corners with two outs in the ninth, but Davis made a diving catch in foul territory off the bat of pinch-hitter Yorvit Torrealba to end the game.

Hawkins was forced into the closer roll after New York placed regular closer Bobby Parnell on the 15-day DL with a herniated disc in his neck earlier in the day.

Charlie Blackmon hit a pinch-hit home run and Nolan Arenado drove in a run for the Rockies, who have lost three straight and seven of eight during their current 10-game road trip.

Lopez (1-4) was hit with the loss, yielding the one run in two innings of work.

New York reliever Scott Atchison (2-0) got the win, tossing one perfect inning.

Lagares started the scoring for the Mets in the first inning with a two-run triple that chased home Byrd and Davis.

New York starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia cruised through the first four innings, but Colorado got a run in the fifth on a sac fly by Arenado and then tied it in the sixth when Blackmon hit a pinch-hit solo homer.

Blackmon's homer came on an 0-2 pitch and happened after a 17-minute delay caused when Blackmon fouled off a bunt attempt that bounced back and hit home plate umpire Manny Gonzalez under the facemask and on the chin. Gonzalez was forced to leave the game and second base umpire Larry Vanover moved behind the plate after taking time to go to the locker room and change.

Mejia continued to struggle to find his groove after the delay, eventually loading the bases with one out before being relieved by Carlos Torres, who got Wilin Rosario to fly out to shallow center and then retired Helton when Young made a diving catch in left to end the threat.

Mejia was charged with two runs -- one earned -- on four hits, matching a career high with seven strikeouts and in 5 1/3 innings.

Colorado starter Chad Bettis also received a no-decision, yielding two runs on four hits in five frames. He struck out two and walked one, working on just three days' rest due to a hamstring injury to starter Tyler Chatwood, whose turn it was in the rotation but he has been skipped indefinitely to get extra rest.

Game Notes

Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez did not start the game due to a finger injury ... Wilmer Flores made his debut with the club, going 0-for-4 and starting at third base in place of the injured David Wright ... Flores celebrated his 22nd birthday on Tuesday ... Flores was leading the Pacific Coast League with 86 RBI while batting .321 with 15 home runs in 107 games with Las Vegas prior to his call up ... New York made room for Flores on the roster by placing Parnell on the 15-day DL prior to the game.

The New York Mets have struggled to score as their slump has deepened over the past two weeks. The Colorado Rockies have had even bigger problems of late, pairing a similar lack of hitting with ineffective pitching.

These teams open a three-game series at Citi Field on Tuesday night in a matchup of scuffling clubs that have fallen toward the bottom of their respective divisions.

New York (49-60) has totaled 11 runs while losing four of five and has scored 13 times in its past nine defeats. The Mets have dropped seven of 10 after a 6-2 loss to red-hot Kansas City on Sunday.

Center fielder Marlon Byrd misplayed two flyballs and New York committed two errors, while Zack Wheeler wasn't at his best in allowing four runs -- three earned -- in five innings. The Mets -- missing recently injured slugger David Wright -- managed eight hits, the eighth time in 10 contests they were held to single digits.

New York could move second baseman Daniel Murphy back to third to fill Wright's spot. Murphy, though, struggled in the field when he was being moved from position to position before settling in at second.

"He's played over there enough in the past that I don't think that's going to be a huge transition," manager Terry Collins told the team's official website Sunday. "It's just that that ball gets to you a lot faster, too."

Recap: Game 110 - Marlins at Mets - Reyes Helps Ruin Mets Homecoming

W: C. Zambrano (7-9) L: J. Niese (8-6)

Jose Reyes extended his hitting streak to 25 games, Giancarlo Stanton drove in a run in his return from the disabled list, and the Marlins held on for a 4-2 victory over the Mets.

Reyes' only hit came during a four-run fourth inning that was highlighted by John Buck's two-run double. Stanton, sidelined since undergoing right knee surgery in early July, added a sacrifice fly and the Marlins' bullpen pitched the final five innings to preserve the win in the series opener.

Wade LeBlanc, making the start for Miami on his 28th birthday, worked four scoreless innings before yielding Daniel Murphy's leadoff homer in the fifth.

J. Niese (L) 21 8-5 3.725.24-23.998/1@SFW7.0311-120.04.50

The Miami Marlins may be struggling, but shortstop Jose Reyes is seeing the ball rather well at the plate.

Reyes and the Marlins will invade Citi Field tonight for the first of three straight games against the New York Mets. Reyes, a former Met, is riding a career-best 24-game hitting streak and is batting .371 during the tear with a .408 on-base percentage, four homers, seven stolen bases, eight doubles, eight RBI and 18 runs scored.

The hitting streak is the longest in the majors this season and the fourth- longest in franchise history. Luis Castillo recorded a 35-game run back in 2002. Emilio Bonifacio had a 26-game stretch last season and Kevin Millar had a hit in 25 straight games in 2002.

Miami is 2-6 so far on an 11-game road trip and lost three of four meetings in Washington, including Sunday's 4-1 setback. Greg Dobbs had two hits and an RBI, Reyes went 1-for-4 and Carlos Lee added a hit and a run scored. Lee is hitting .474 with 10 RBI and 18 hits during an 11-game hitting streak for the Marlins, who have lost 14 of their last 19 games.

Ricky Nolasco was dealt the loss for giving up four runs in six innings.

"Ricky threw the ball better today than he was the last couple of outings," Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said. "Very tough second inning. He left some balls over the middle of the plate. I thought he was going to be worse, knowing it was hot and humid."

Wade LeBlanc draws the start for Miami tonight and is 1-1 with a 1.35 earned run average in 12 games (1 start) this season. He allowed one run in 4 1/3 innings of a 4-2 win at Atlanta last Wednesday for the no-decision. The left- hander has made two career starts against New York, going 0-1 with a 3.18 ERA.

Recap : Game 110 - Marlins at Mets - Mets lose 4th in a row

Final Score: Florida 4, New York 3

Another night, another deflating loss for Jason Isringhausen and the New York Mets.

After surrendering a 10th-inning grand slam to Mike Stanton in Monday's series-opening loss, Isringhausen allowed two runs in the top of the ninth as the Mets fell, 4-3, to the Florida Marlins.

The Marlins loaded the bases with one down against Isringhausen (2-2) before pinch-hitter Bryan Petersen dribbled a grounder toward second. Justin Turner fielded the ball and made an errant throw to first baseman Lucas Duda, allowing the tying and go-ahead runs to cross the plate.

Steve Cishek (2-1) threw two scoreless frames to earn the win, and Leo Nunez recorded his 31st save of the season after entering in the ninth with a runner aboard and closing the door.

Omar Infante belted two home runs for the Marlins, who moved to .500 for the first time since June 12.

The loss ruined a strong outing from Mets starter Chris Capuano, who allowed two runs on four hits over six innings and also scored a run.

Jose Reyes added a home run for the Mets, losers of four in a row.

Florida Marlins (54-55) at New York Mets (55-54), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Florida - Brad Hand (1-3, 2.73) New York - Chris Capuano (9-10, 4.51)

The Florida Marlins try to get to .500 for the first time since June 12 this evening when they play the second test of a three-game series with the New York Mets at Citi Field.

Florida pulled within a game of the break even mark on Monday, as Mike Stanton hit a grand slam in the top of the 10th inning, propelling the Marlins to a 7-3 win.

The Marlins used three straight singles from Gaby Sanchez, Hanley Ramirez and DeWayne Wise to load the bases, and Stanton cracked a 3-2 cutter from Jason Isringhausen over the left field wall for his second career grand slam.

"I was just trying to make sure I put the ball in play," Stanton said. "With a guy on third and less than two out, you have to put the ball in play, especially in that situation."

Omar Infante collected three hits, including a triple, and Sanchez added a pair of RBI for the Marlins, who have won seven of their last nine games.

Leo Nunez (1-2) gave up the lead in the ninth, but picked up the win courtesy of Stanton's moonshot. He also absorbed his fourth blown save of the season.
