Recap: Game 118 - Mets (4) at Dodgers (5) - Dodger Express Rolls ON

Yasiel Puig legged out a double on a slow rolling grounder and came home to score on Adrian Gonzalez's line drive down the left-field line, as the Los Angeles Dodgers prevailed in 12 innings over the New York Mets, 5-4, to extend their winning streak to eight games.

The Dodgers continue to find ways to win, 40 times in the last 48 games, in fact. They trailed by four runs after five innings on Wednesday, but chipped away to stay within striking distance.

LaTroy Hawkins blew the save for New York in the ninth, denying Dillon Gee of his ninth win. He served up a two-run, game-tying homer to pinch-hitter Andre Ethier that sent the game to extra innings.

When his hit in the 12th through the middle deflected off the glove of shortstop Omar Quintanilla, Puig never stopped running and came flying in to slide into second safely.

Gonzalez handed Pedro Feliciano (0-1) the loss with his liner down the third- base line.

It doesn't look like anything can slow down the Los Angeles Dodgers right now.

The National League West leaders go for a three-game sweep of the New York Mets on Wednesday night having already put together the best 47-game span by a club in 62 years.

The Dodgers have won 22 of their 25 games since the All-Star break and have put together a 39-8 mark over their last 47 games. That is the best for the franchise over that span since 1900 and the best by any club since the New York Giants had an identical record during 47 contests of the 1951 season.

Los Angeles faced off against the exciting Matt Harvey on Tuesday and posted a 4-2 victory. Hyun-Jin Ryu outpitched the phenom with seven strong innings. He allowed a first-inning homer to Juan Lagares, but allowed just four hits after that to remain unbeaten over his last nine outings.

"Ryu matched their guy pitch for pitch. He used all of his pitches and he made his pitches when he had to," said Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis. "We have a confidence right now that everyday we're going to find a way to win."

Ellis and Nick Punto each knocked in two runs for the Dodgers, who have won seven in a row for the first time since 2010.

Los Angeles is also slated to have shortstop Hanley Ramirez in the starting lineup for the first time since Aug. 4. He has made just one pinch-hit appearance since due to a sore right shoulder.

The Mets, meanwhile, may be forced to put third baseman Wilmer Flores on the disabled list due to a twisted right ankle suffered on Monday. The prospect has been filling in at the hot corner with David Wright out because of a strained right hamstring.

Happy Recap: Game 118 - Mets at Reds - Harvey Wins Second, Mets Win 8-4

Great American Ball Park (Cincinnati, Ohio)
N.Y. Mets (56-62) «000303002890
Cincinnati (71-47)000000103483
W: M. Harvey (2-3) L: H. Bailey (10-8)
S: J. Rauch (3)
HR: NYM - I. Davis (21),J. Bay (6)   CIN - R. Ludwick (22)

Rookie Matt Harvey pitched 7 2/3 stellar innings and added a two-run double, as the New York Mets avoided a three-game sweep with an 8-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.

Harvey (2-3), who made his major league debut on July 26, took a perfect game into the fifth. In all, the 23-year-old righty was charged with one run on four hits with a walk and eight strikeouts. He now has 34 Ks in five career starts.

"I knew it was going to be a tough lineup. I just wanted to go out and not so much worry about who I was facing, as much as where the call was, where the pitch was supposed to go and try and execute as best I could," said Harvey.

Ike Davis homered and drove in a pair while Jason Bay hit a solo shot for the Mets, who scored just one run over the first two games of the series.

Homer Bailey (10-8) took the loss, allowing six runs -- four earned -- on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings. He walked three and struck out six.

"Physically I feel great. I have no excuses. I'm just not making pitches as consistently as I need to," said Bailey.

Jay Bruce had a seventh-inning RBI double and Ryan Ludwick homered during a three-run ninth for the Reds, who saw their five-game win streak come to an end. They still lead the NL Central by six games.

Entering Thursday, Cincinnati had given up just one run over a 34-inning stretch, but New York used a pair of three-run frames to secure its third win in the last 10 games.

Davis led off the fourth with his 21st homer of the year before a two-out single by Bay and an intentional walk to Kelly Shoppach set up Harvey's blast to the wall in left-center field, which made it 3-0.

In the sixth, Bay belted a one-out homer to right and Shoppach reached on an error by third baseman Scott Rolen. Harvey moved Shoppach up with a sacrifice bunt and Ruben Tejada followed with an RBI double. Mike Baxter then singled home Tejada for a 6-0 lead.

Harvey, who had lost three straight starts after winning his debut, hit Ludwick with a pitch to begin the fifth inning. Rolen followed with a two-out infield single to break up the no-hitter, but Devin Mesoraco grounded out to end the threat.

Brandon Phillips led off the seventh with a double and crossed the plate on Bruce's two-bagger down the right-field line.

Davis tacked on an RBI double in the ninth and scored later in the frame when shortstop Zack Cozart couldn't handle a sharp grounder from Justin Turner.

In the bottom half, Frank Francisco gave up a leadoff homer to Ludwick, an RBI single to Miguel Cairo and a run-scoring double to Cozart before Jon Rauch struck out Wilson Valdez to secure his third save of the season.

Game Notes

Harvey's 34 strikeouts over his first five major league games rank second in Mets history behind Dwight Gooden (36) ... Rauch has allowed just one run over his last 20 appearances dating back to June 28 ... The Reds are 21-9 since Joey Votto left the lineup.

Preview: Game 118 - Mets at Reds - Harvey Faces Reds in Finale

H. Bailey (R) 23 10-7 4.085.23-55.358/10@CHCW5.2941-114.09.00

Rookie right-hander Matt Harvey gets his first look at the Cincinnati Reds tonight when the New York Mets visit Great American Ball Park to wrap up a three-game series.

Harvey, a 23-year-old Connecticut native, was drafted in the third round by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim out of high school but did not sign. He attended the University of North Carolina and was eventually selected seventh overall by the Mets in 2010.

He was 7-5 in 20 starts at Triple-A Buffalo to begin 2012 before the call-up to the majors, where he debuted on July 26 with 5 1/3 innings of scoreless three-hit ball in a 3-1 win at Arizona.

Three subsequent starts have yielded three straight losses to San Francisco, San Diego and Atlanta, in which Harvey has yielded 14 hits and 10 runs in 17 innings of work.

Overall, he's limited big-league batters to a .205 average while walking 12 and striking out 26 in 22 1/3 innings.

The Reds send former first-round pick Homer Bailey to the mound with a chance to build on a career-high victory total.

A 26-year-old Texan selected seventh overall in 2004, Bailey had won eight games in 2009 and nine last season before finally getting to double-digits with a 10-6 defeat of the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 10.

Recap : Game 118 - Mets at Diamondbacks - Ransom's 2B the difference

Final Score: Diamondbacks 4, Mets 3

Ian Kennedy tossed seven strong innings and Cody Ransom had a two-run double as the Arizona Diamondbacks edged the New York Mets, 4-3, to open a three-game series.

Kennedy (15-3) extended his career-best winning streak to seven games by allowing one run on six hits and three walks.

Justin Upton had a solo home run in the win, which extended Arizona's lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NL West to two games.

J.J. Putz allowed a run in the ninth, but held on to record his 28th save of the year.

Dillon Gee (10-4) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk in five innings to take the loss.

"I made a couple of mistakes early in the game that really cost me, but really I felt pretty good," said Gee. "Especially the last four innings I was feeling pretty good and hopefully this is something I can take into my next start."

Jason Bay had three hits, an RBI and a run scored in the Mets' third straight defeat.

Preview : Game 118 - Mets at Diamondbacks

New York Mets (58-59) at Arizona Diamondbacks (65-53), 9:40 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Dillon Gee (10-3, 3.93) Arizona - Ian Kennedy (14-3, 3.20)

Arizona's victory on Thursday was the kind of win that first-place teams are often able to pull out.

After holding on to an edge atop the National League West last night, Ian Kennedy will try to pad the advantage tonight with his seventh straight victory as the Diamondbacks begin a three-game series with the New York Mets at Chase Field.

Arizona carried a half-game lead over idle San Francisco for first place in the division into Thursday's finale with Houston, but seemed destined to fall back into a tie for the top spot before some late-inning heroics.

Paul Goldschmidt hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth inning to force extra innings before Chris Young belted a walk-off three-run homer in the 10th for an 8-5 victory. It was only Arizona's second victory in 50 games when trailing after eight innings as it won the final three contests of the four- game set with Houston.
