Recap: Game 113 - Mets (4) at D'Backs (5) - Goldschmidt's Walk-Off HR in 9th does in Mets

N.Y. Mets (52-61)000101020480
Arizona (59-55)«0000220015100

W: B. Ziegler (5-1) L: S. Atchison (2-1)
HR: NYM - None   ARI - P. Goldschmidt (27)


Paul Goldschmidt sliced a game-winning solo home run over the right-field wall in the ninth inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a dramatic 5-4 victory over the New York Mets in the opener of a three-game series.

Goldschmidt's 27th home run of the season came on a hanging breaking ball from Scott Atchison (2-1) and gave the D'backs their seventh walk-off win and league-leading 23rd victory in their final at-bat.

"I just left a cutter up," Atchison said. "He's a good hitter...and he made me pay for a bad pitch."

Brad Ziegler (5-1) tossed a perfect ninth to pick up the win behind starter Patrick Corbin, who held the Mets to two runs on four hits and three walks over six quality innings but wound up with a no-decision.

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI for Arizona, which has won three in a row for the first time since July 11-13.

Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with three RBI for the Mets, who couldn't build off a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies.

New York scratched two runs off Heath Bell in the eighth to tie the game at 4-4. Bell, who had not allowed a run in 11 straight appearances, gave up three consecutive singles to load the bases before Turner and Wilmer Flores each pushed a run across via groundouts.

The go-ahead run was stranded on third thanks to a nice defensive play by Martin Prado, and Goldschmidt sent the fans home happy an inning later.

"It was fun," Goldschmidt said. "You get an opportunity to win the game in the ninth inning or extra innings...and it's a lot of fun. Hopefully we can do it a few more times."

Six of Arizona's 10 hits went for doubles, including three consecutive two- baggers with two down in the fifth inning. Corbin started the string with a double to center field, and Eaton and Prado capped it with run-scoring extra- base hits to put the D'backs in front, 2-1.

Turner, who broke a scoreless tie with an RBI single in the fourth, added another one in the sixth to even things.

Again the D'backs answered as they began their half of the sixth with a single and a pair of doubles, with Wil Nieves' liner down the left-field line bringing in both Aaron Hill and Cody Ross.

Hill had a pair of big relay throws to secure the win, the second coming in the seventh when he gunned down Juan Lagares trying to leg out a triple. The first certainly saved a run, as his perfect toss to the plate denied Marlon Byrd from pulling off an inside-the-park home run in the second inning.

Game Notes

The D'backs lead the majors with 24 one-run victories ... Corbin, who has a 1.60 ERA in 13 home starts this season, tied Clayton Kershaw for the MLB lead with 20 quality starts and has allowed two runs or less in 18 of his 23 outings ... Mets starter Jeremy Hefner was touched for four runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.

J. Hefner (R) 22 4-8 4.235.13-33.938/3KCND6.0830-115.26.32
P. Corbin (L) 22 12-3 2.336.08-11.508/3@BOSL6.0831-220.02.25


Despite losing his last two starts, Arizona's Patrick Corbin has been stellar since the New York Mets handed him his first defeat just over five weeks ago.

Corbin tries to avenge that loss to the Mets when he takes the ball in Friday night's series opener in Arizona.

Corbin (12-3, 2.33 ERA) entered his start at Citi Field on July 2 trying to become the first left-handed starter in the majors to begin a season 10-0 since Ron Guidry opened 13-0 for the New York Yankees in 1978. He got off to strong start, allowing one runner over the first four innings but ended up permitting a season-high five runs and six hits in six-plus innings of a 9-1 defeat.

He has since returned to All-Star form, posting a 1.82 ERA with 40 strikeouts over 34 2/3 innings in his last five outings.

Corbin has been saddled with the loss in his last two starts, though he isn't entirely to blame.

He gave up a run in eight innings in a 1-0 setback to San Diego on July 28 and permitted three runs in six-plus innings in Saturday's 5-2 final at Boston. He has received one total run of support in those games, and has been backed by an average of 2.7 runs of support in his last 11 contests after receiving an average of 5.8 in his first 11.

Recap: Game 113 - Braves at Mets - Braves Maholm Shuts Out Mets 4-0

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)
Atlanta (65-47) «200000020441
N.Y. Mets (54-59)000000000030
W: P. Maholm (10-7) L: M. Harvey (1-3)
HR: ATL - J. Heyward (19),D. Uggla (13)   NYM - None

Paul Maholm fired his fourth career shutout Friday as the Atlanta Braves blanked the New York Mets, 4-0, in the opener of a three-game set at Citi Field.

Maholm (10-7), who was acquired from the Chicago Cubs before the non-waiver trade deadline, allowed just three hits and struck out five without walking a batter to earn his first victory as a Brave.

"Obviously it's pretty good to get off to a good start with a new team," remarked Maholm. "To get a complete game in my first win is a lot of fun."

Jason Heyward and Dan Uggla each clubbed two-run home runs for Atlanta, which won for the fourth time in their last five games.

Matt Harvey (1-3) pitched well in defeat, giving up just two runs on two hits. But he did walk five and absorbed the loss for the Mets, who have dropped their last six meetings with Atlanta.

"He's got all the talent he needs to compete up here," said Mets manager Terry Collins of Harvey. "All he has to do is make pitches."

The Braves wasted little time getting on the board in the first as Michael Bourn worked a leadoff walk before Heyward followed with a blast into the Atlanta bullpen in right-center field to give the Braves a 2-0 lead.

Daniel Murphy's single in the second inning was New York's only hit of the game before Rob Johnson's one-out double in the sixth. Johnson moved to third on pinch-hitter Justin Turner's groundout, but was stranded 90 feet away when Andres Torres grounded out to end the sixth.

The Mets got a two-out double from Scott Hairston in the seventh, but Maholm retired the final seven Mets he faced to complete the shutout.

Uggla crushed a fastball into the left-field bleachers in the eighth to plate Freddie Freeman and account for the final margin.

Game Notes

Heyward's homer was his 19th of the season, which marks a career high...Maholm's last shutout came on May 28, 2011 against the Cubs as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates...Braves third baseman Chipper Jones was scratched due to back tightness...Atlanta catcher Brian McCann missed his second straight game with a sore right shoulder...New York second baseman Ruben Tejada went 0-for-4, snapping his 14-game hit-streak.

Rookie right-hander Matt Harvey will make his Citi Field debut as the New York Mets open a three-game set with their National League East rivals, the Atlanta Braves.

The Mets snapped an ugly nine-game skid on their home field Thursday behind All-Star R.A. Dickey. The knuckleballer went the distance and Andres Torres fell a single shy of the cycle as New York avoided a sweep with a 6-1 decision over Miami in the finale of a three-game set.

Dickey (15-3) scattered five hits and one run, fanning 10 to record his fourth complete game of the season.

Torres finished 3-for-3, drove in three and scored twice for the Mets, who snapped the nine-game losing streak, which was the franchise's longest since moving to Citi Field in 2009.

"That nine-game streak that was stopped today is more important than that 15th win," Dickey said.

Atlanta comes in 4 1/2 games behind Washington for the NL East lead after taking two of three in Philadelphia. Dan Uggla's three-run double in the seventh inning helped the Braves take a 12-6 win in the rubber match of that series on Wednesday.

Final Score: Atlanta 6, New York 5

Chipper Jones singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 6-5 victory over the New York Mets in the rubber match of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Alex Gonzalez, Jose Constanza and Jason Heyward each homered for the Braves, who have won three of their last four.

Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla extended his career-high hitting streak to 28 games with a two-out single in the eighth, while Braves rookie first baseman Freddie Freeman went 0-for-4 to halt his personal-best hitting streak at 20 games.

Preview : Game 113 - Braves at Mets - Mets try to take 2 out of 3

Atlanta Braves (65-49) at New York Mets (56-56), 1:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Atlanta - Mike Minor (1-2, 4.59) New York - Dillon Gee (10-3, 3.69)

The New York Mets were able to get back into the win column and look to remain there when they wrap up a three-game series Sunday versus the NL East-rival Atlanta Braves from Citi Field.

New York had lost five in a row before evening its series with Atlanta by recording an 11-7 win last night. Justin Turner clubbed two of New York's four home runs and finished with four RBI, while Jason Bay and Josh Thole got into the long ball act for the Mets, who are 1-3 on a rain-shortened nine-game homestand. Bay ended with three RBI, and both Angel Pagan and Thole contributed three hits in a winning effort.

"I know he's got a little power, but I haven't seen the opposite field like that," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Turner. "I'm happy for him too because he's one of those guys that shows up, wants to play and wants to play well."

David Wright had a hit, an RBI and a run scored for the Mets and entered the game batting .400 with a .414 on-base percentage. Wright was recently sidelined with a back injury.

Mets starter Jon Niese held on for the win -- his 11th of the season -- despite surrendering five runs and 10 hits in five innings. The Mets will also host San Diego for four games on this residency.

Young right-hander Dillon Gee has been a nice surprise for New York this season and will take the mound this afternoon. Gee has won two of his last three starts and was previously in action in last Friday's 8-5 win at Washington. He allowed three runs, two of which were earned, and four hits in 6 2/3 innings to improve to 10-3 with a 3.69 ERA in 20 games (17 starts).

Gee is unbeaten against Atlanta this season, going 2-0 with a minuscule 0.54 ERA in three starts. He is 2-1 in four career starts in this series and 5-2 with a 2.85 ERA in 10 games (8 starts) at home this season.
