Preview: Game 119 - Mets at Padres - Wheeler vs Ross

SeasonRd/HmLast StartLast 3 App
Z. Wheeler (R) 10 5-2 3.635.24-02.218/10@ARIW6.1611-118.13.44
T. Ross (R) 7 3-5 2.755.00-12.168/10@CINW7.0412-121.01.29


New York rookie southpaw Zack Wheeler can stay unbeaten on the road on Thursday night when the Mets pull into Petco Park to begin a four- game series with the San Diego Padres.

The 23-year-old Georgia native was initially drafted by the San Francisco Giants before heading to the Mets organization in a trade for outfielder Carlos Beltran.

He debuted with six innings of scoreless four-hit ball in a 6-1 win at Atlanta on June 18, and has since improved to 4-0 in six road starts while toting a stingy 2.21 earned run average.

He was a 4-1 winner over the Arizona Diamondbacks in his last start - in Phoenix - on Aug. 10, and allowed a single run on six hits with no walks over 6 1/3 innings of work.

In 36 2/3 innings on the road, opponents have managed to hit just .206 - 33 points lower than his overall mark of .239.

He's opposed by journeyman righty Tyson Ross, who makes his 29th career start - and eighth for the Padres - in his 80th career big-league outing.

Now 26, Ross was a second-round pick of the Oakland Athletics in 2008 and was 6-18 in 53 games with the team through the end of 2012.

Recap: Game 119 - Mets at Nationals - Morse, Harper Too Much for Mets

Nationals Park (Washington, D.C.)
N.Y. Mets (56-63)200001100480
Washington (74-45) «00042000x680
W: R. Detwiler (7-5) L: J. Santana (6-9)
S: T. Clippard (26)
HR: NYM - K. Shoppach (6)   WAS - M. Morse (12),B. Harper (11)

Michael Morse belted a grand slam and Bryce Harper added a two-run homer as the Washington Nationals edged the New York Mets, 6-4, in the opener of a three-game series.

Ross Detwiler (7-5) threw six quality innings, allowing three runs on six hits for Washington, which was coming off a successful 8-2 road trip.

Johan Santana (6-9) tumbled to a fifth straight loss after surrendering six runs on seven hits over five innings.

"It just came down to a couple of pitches," Santana said.

Santana, who lasted a career low-tying 1 1/3 innings in his previous start, retired the first nine batters after being staked to a lead on Daniel Murphy's two-run single in the first frame.

But the Nationals, perhaps sluggish following just their second off day since the All-Star break, woke up in the fourth with three straight singles by Jayson Werth, Harper and Ryan Zimmerman.

Morse, hitless in his previous nine at-bats against Santana, made it four hits in a row when he went the other way with a letter-high fastball and found the right-field seats for the Nationals' first grand slam of the season.

"It was awesome. Everyone in the dugout and in the stands was going crazy," said Detwiler of the grand slam.

Harper made it 6-2 an inning later as Werth singled with two-away prior to the rookie's 11th homer of the year.

The Mets scored a run in each of their next two turns at the plate to stay close. Scott Hairston led off the sixth with his third double of the game and eventually scored on Ronny Cedeno's groundout.

Kelly Shoppach, in his second game with the Mets since being claimed off waivers, took Craig Stammen deep to left leading off the seventh for his first National League homer to cut the deficit to 6-4.

David Wright then opened the away eighth with a single to keep hope alive, but he was erased when Drew Storen induced Hairston to ground into a rally-killing 5-4-3 double play.

Tyler Clippard put the tying run on base with a pair of walks in the ninth, but the Nationals closer got Ruben Tejada on a routine flyout to left to secure his 26th save.

Game Notes

Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond was activated from the disabled list before the game and went 0-for-4. He had been out since July 21 with a torn left oblique muscle ... Morse is riding a 13-game hitting streak ... The Nationals are 10-3 against New York so far this season ... Washington is 23-5 in games started by opposing left-handed starters ... Santana has pitched to a 15.63 ERA since his last win on June 30.

R. Detwiler (L) 18 6-5 3.185.15-12.518/12@ARIL4.2341-118.22.89

All-Star shortstop Ian Desmond is expected to return when the National League East-leading Washington Nationals open up a three-game set with the New York Mets in the nation's capital.

The Nats, who are kicking off a six-game homestand tonight which includes three tests against second-place Atlanta after this series, is coming off another successful road trip, capping an 8-2 trek with a 6-4 win over San Francisco on Wednesday.

Jayson Werth drove in three runs in that one to back Stephen Strasburg as the Nationals took the rubber match in a three-game series versus the Giants.

Steve Lombardozzi collected four hits, including two doubles, and Danny Espinosa clubbed a two-run homer for the Nationals, who lead the Braves by four games in the East.

Strasburg (14-5) limited the Giants to two runs on four hits over six innings. He walked four and struck out seven.

"We need to finish strong and we need to keep playing hard," said Strasburg, who might be nearly finished for the season with an innings limit on the horizon. "We can't focus on the finish line when we have 40-something games left."

Desmond, who has been out since July 21 with a torn left oblique muscle, is expected to be activated off the disabled list before Friday's contest. The Florida native was red-hot before his injury, batting .388 with six homers and 17 RBI in his prior 19 games.

"We haven't really all been together, and we're still missing (catcher) Willy Ramos," manager Davey Johnson told the Nationals' website. "Getting Desi back, that'll be great."

Recap : Game 119 - Mets at Diamondbacks - Mets lose 4th straight

Final Score: Arizona 6, New York 4

Ryan Roberts hit a three-run homer and scored twice to back eight solid innings from Daniel Hudson, as the Arizona Diamondbacks took down the New York Mets, 6-4, in the second test of a three- game series.

Hudson (12-8) gave up four runs -- two earned -- on eight hits to pick up the win. He also had an RBI single in the sixth for the Diamondbacks, who have won five in a row and sit two games ahead of the Giants in the NL West.

"I was just trying to make quality pitches and get the team off the field as quick as possible," Hudson said.

Ruben Tejada drove in two runs for the Mets, who have dropped four straight.

New York starter Mike Pelfrey allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits over four-plus innings before leaving with an injury. Gerardo Parra's sharp line drive in the fifth inning hit off Pelfrey's right elbow. X-rays taken on his elbow during the game were negative.

"The elbow feels good," Pelfrey said. "I thought I had good stuff tonight for the first time in six or seven starts. It sucks that you've got to end it like that."

D.J. Carrasco (1-3) was charged with two runs on one hit in one inning of relief to suffer the loss.

The D-Backs scored a pair of runs in the first inning. Roberts hit a one-out double to left and crossed the plate on Justin Upton's base hit to center. Upton stole second, moved to third on catcher Ronny Paulino's throwing error and scored on Miguel Montero's sacrifice fly.

Preview : Game 119 - Mets at Diamondbacks

Haven't we seen enough of this?
New York Mets (58-60) at Arizona Diamondbacks (66-53), 8:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Mike Pelfrey (6-9, 4.53) Arizona - Daniel Hudson (11-8, 3.83)

It took a while, but New York starter Mike Pelfrey finally found the win column against Arizona back on April 22. He'll aim to make it two in a row this evening in the middle portion of a three-game set between the Mets and Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

Pelfrey had lost his first five career decisions to the Diamondbacks before pitching seven innings of one-run ball back in April. That lowered his career earned run average in this series to 5.82 in eight starts.

Pelfrey is 1-0 over his past four starts overall after enduring a 1-5 stretch from June 24-July 17, but the righty posted his second straight no-decision on Monday. Facing the Padres, he allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks over 6 1/3 innings of his team's 9-8 win, lasting longer than six frames for just the second time in nine starts.

The 27-year-old is 6-9 with a 4.53 ERA in 24 starts, already matching his loss total from a season ago, and owns a 5.35 ERA in 14 road games in 2011.

He'll try to get the Mets even in this series after the Diamondbacks edged by with a 4-3 win last night. Justin Upton hit a solo homer and Ian Kennedy gave up a run over seven innings to run his career-high winning streak to seven straight starts.

"It helps, especially by the second inning you're up 4-0 and you know you can just be aggressive," Kennedy said about getting an early lead. "It makes it more challenging because you know you have that lead and can just go after guys."
