Recap: Game 12 - Mets (2) at Angels (14) - Mets Give Up 5 HR's to Angels


New York

Los Angeles

W: C. Wilson (2-1) L: B. Colon (1-2)
HR: NYM - None   LAA - M. Trout (4),A. Pujols (3),R. Ibanez (3),H. Conger (1),I. Stewart (1)


Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez connected on back-to-back-to-back home runs in the first inning to spark the LA Angels of Anaheim to a 14-2 blowout victory over the New York Mets in the rubber match of a three-game interleague series.

Hank Conger tacked on a two-run blast in the home run barrage against Bartolo Colon (1-2), who surrendered four of the Angels' five round-trippers and was tagged for nine runs on 11 hits over just five innings.

C.J. Wilson (2-1) was much more effective on the hill, striking out nine over seven frames and limiting New York to two runs on six hits and three walks.

All nine hitters in Los Angeles' starting lineup recorded a hit and scored at least one run. Ian Stewart homered and drove in three, while Trout and J.B. Shuck each finished with three hits and an RBI.

David Wright singled in a run in the first inning and Juan Lagares scored in the fifth on Eric Young's double-play ball to account for New York's offense.

The first two games of this series went extra innings, but Sunday's meeting was all Angels from start to finish -- beginning with a four-spot in the first frame.

Trout hit a payoff pitch deep to straightaway center for his fourth home run of the season, Pujols launched one into the left-field seats and Ibanez cranked a 2-1 fastball deep to right for his second homer in as many games.

It was the first time the Angels hit three consecutive homers since July 27, 2009, and Kole Calhoun nearly made it four in a row with a shot to right- center. The ball hit off the wall for a double, though, and Calhoun came around on Stewart's two-out two-bagger for a 4-1 cushion.

The first five hitters in the home fourth reached base and three came around to score, as Erick Aybar tripled in a pair and trotted home on Shuck's base hit.

Conger took Colon deep in the fifth for a 9-2 advantage, and Scott Rice yielded a pair of runs in the sixth when he loaded the bases, issued a free pass to Ibanez and uncorked a wild pitch that brought in Trout.

Another wild pitch, this one from John Lannan, allowed Calhoun to score in the eighth, and Stewart's two-run homer later in the frame accounted for the final margin.

Preview: Game 12
New York Mets (5-6) at Anaheim Angels (5-6)
Pitching Probables - RHP Bartolo Colon (1-1 - 2.01 ERA) vs LHP C.J. Wilson (1-1 - 4.61 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - 3:35PM


The New York Mets look to take the rubber game of the 3 game set from the Angels and it would mark their third straight series win. The Mets also have not seen the .500 mark all season, same goes for the Angels.  The Mets will have to face LHP C.J. Wilson to accomplish that. Only five current Mets have faced him and they only are batting a career .139 off him. Curtis Granderson has 16 AB's vs Wilson and batting .188 vs him. The Mets will have to use Andrew Brown (prob DH) and Josh Satin (1B)  to counter the odds. Career against Wilson, Right hand hitters are batting .252 and lefties are batting .192 off him. Wilson won the last time out (9-1) vs the Astros on the April 7th, he went 8 innings, gave up 4 hits, and 7 K's . He threw 120 pitchers, 71 for strikes.

The Mets will send veteran RHP Bartolo Colon to the hill,  who seems to be a strike throwing machine these days.. His last game he won (4-0) and he threw 101 pitches, 70 for strikes. He also went 7 innings, gave up 6 hits, no runs, and K'd 5. In two starts, he has pitched 211 pitches and 145 of them were for strikes.  That's 69%... Colon knows the Angels far too well. In his career he is 12-6 with a 3.16 ERA vs the Angels. That is over 23 starts. This Group of Angels have had some success against Bartolo. The collectively bat .267 with 4 HR's and 17 RBIs. Mike Trout has two career HR's vs Colon.  Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez have one HR each off Colon in their careers.  Back to Trout, he owns Colon batting .500 (not a misprint) 7 for 14 off him.

It's going to interesting if Bartolo Colon can baffle the Angels or Blunder in Anaheim. Should be a high scoring affair, but maybe not?.... LGM!

Josh Satin went 2 for 2 with a walk, he hit a solo homer in the second inning.

Wilmer Flores, who started at shortstop went 2 for 3..

Rafael Montero went two innings, giving up 1 hit, 1 run.

Gonzalez Germen got the win and Miguel Socolovich got the save.

Not in the Box Score:

The Mets had two diving catches in the outfield by Eric Young Jr. and Juan Lagares, who makes it look routine out there. It's going to hard to keep him out of the lineup..

Recap: Game 12 (Game 1 DH) - Mets (4) at Rockies (8) - Rockies Chill Mets

N.Y. Mets (7-5)200110000480
Colorado (9-4)«01103102x8120

W: J. Nicasio (2-0) L: D. Gee (0-3)
HR: NYM - D. Wright (1),D. Wright (2)   COL - C. Gonzalez (4)

Todd Helton drove in a pair of runs and Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a triple and a solo homer as the Colorado Rockies downed the New York Mets, 8-4, in the first game of a double-header from Coors Field.

Eric Young had three hits and drove in a pair of runs, while Michael Cuddyer, Jonathan Herrera and Wilin Rosario added one RBI apiece for the Rockies, winners in three straight.

Juan Niasco (2-0) earned the win after giving up all four runs on six hits while fanning five batters over five full frames.

David Wright went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI and Ruben Tejada added an RBI single for the Mets, who had won two straight entering the contest.

Dillon Gee (0-3) was tagged for five runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings and absorbed the loss.

Monday's game between the two clubs was snowed-out after the Denver area was blanketed with snow. Tuesday's contest was pushed back two hours so the grounds crew could remove snow from the field. The second part of the twinbill is expected to start at 8:40 p.m.

Wright got the Mets on the board with a two-run shot in the first. Daniel Murphy walked before Wright clobbered a 2-1 pitch over the wall in right field.

The Rockies pushed one run across in both the second and third innings to knot things up.

Cuddyer opened the second with a double down the left-field line before scoring on Rosario's base hit to right field. In the third, Gonzalez crushed a solo homer to right field. It was his fourth of the season.

Tejada's base hit to right field scored John Buck to give the Mets a one-run edge. With runners on first and second, Tejada slapped a sharp grounder to the right side. Helton attempted to make a diving stab, but the ball skipped off his glove and into right field, allowing Buck to score easily.

Wright added solo shot to dead center in the fifth make it 4-2.

Colorado, though, scored three runs in the fifth to go up 5-4. Cuddyer drew a two-out, bases loaded walk to score Young. Helton followed with a base hit up the middle to push both Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki across.

Young's base hit scored Chris Nelson in the seventh to give the Rockies a two-run cushion and Colorado added two more in the eighth to account for the final margin.

Jordan Pacheco singled and scored on Young's triple off the wall in center. Herrera followed with a base hit to left to push Young across.

Game Notes

Colorado improved to 4-0 at home this season ... Nelson went 2-for-4 with a double ... Colorado's relievers allowed just two hits over four innings ... Buck went 2-for-4 ... It was the Mets first game since Saturday.

Right-hander Dillon Gee will try to follow the mound example most recently set by teammmate Matt Harvey on Tuesday when the New York Mets try once again to get on the field to begin a weather-altered four- game series with the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

The Mets last played on Saturday, when they got eight innings of two-hit ball from Harvey in a 4-2 defeat of the Minnesota Twins.

New York has since seen its finale against the Twins nixed by inclement weather, then had the same thing happen in Monday night's scheduled opener against the Rockies, which will be made up as part of Tuesday's day/night twinbill.

Gee, who won 13 times in 30 appearances with the Mets two years ago, skidded to just six wins in 17 starts in 2012 and has opened 2013 with a pair of losses to National League foes.

Recap: Game 12 - Mets at Braves - Braves Hit three HR's, Crush Mets 14-6

Final Score: Atlanta 14, New York 6

Juan Francisco, Dan Uggla and Freddie Freeman each hit a two-run homer on Wednesday and the Braves pounded the Mets, 14-6, in the finale of a three-game series.

Atlanta, which was swept by the Mets to begin the season, has won seven of its last eight games overall, including the final two in this series.

Michael Bourn went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Martin Prado also knocked in a pair. Jair Jurrjens allowed four runs on seven hits over four-plus innings and Cristhian Martinez (1-0) earned the win after giving up one run in two innings of relief.

"It was awesome," Uggla said. "It was really fun to watch. Francisco got us going with another homer."

David Wright had three RBI, Ike Davis hit a solo home run and Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles for the Mets, losers of three of their last four.

R.A. Dickey (2-1) took the loss and saw his major league-leading streak of 14 straight quality starts come to an emphatic end. He was charged with eight runs on eight hits and two walks over 4 1/3 innings.

"I've got to give us a better shot," Dickey said. "We were hitting the ball great. I wish I would've kept us in the game longer."

The Braves went on top for good in the third. Jurrjens and Bourn led off with consecutive singles before scoring on Prado's double down the left-field line. Uggla followed two batters later with a two-run homer for a 6-3 advantage.

Wright scored Nieuwenhuis and chased Jurrjens with an infield single in the fifth, but Freeman threw Daniel Murphy out at the plate later in the inning and hit a two-run homer in the bottom half to make it 8-4.

Josh Thole doubled to begin the sixth and later scored on Nieuwenhuis's single, but Atlanta continued to pull ahead. In the home sixth, Chipper Jones hit an RBI double with a catchable fly to left fielder Jason Bay and scored on Bourn's line drive single. The Mets left the bases loaded in the seventh before Matt Diaz and Bourn slapped two-out RBI singles, making it 12-5.

Nieuwenhuis led off the eighth with a double and Murphy followed with an RBI single but Jason Heyward tripled a half-inning later and scored on Freeman's sac fly before David Ross doubled home Francisco to cap the scoring.

Earlier, Davis led off the second inning with a blast over the wall in right- center field for his third home run of the season to give the Mets an initial lead.

The Braves went in front in the bottom of the inning when Francisco followed Freeman's one-out double with his second home run of the season and second in as many games.

The Mets regained the lead when Nieuwenhuis and Murphy each walked with one out in the third and raced home on a double off the center-field wall by Wright. Davis then drilled a hard one-hopper off the glove of Freeman at first and Wright was easily gunned down at home by Uggla, who was backing up the play. After Bay again walked, Duda was caught looking at a third strike to keep it a 3-2 game.

Game Notes

Wright is now tied with Darryl Strawberry for the most RBI in team history (733)...The Braves improved to 6-1 on the season when they score four or more runs in a game...Heyward extended his hit streak to eight straight games...Dickey's quality start streak dated back to July 25th of last year. It was the longest streak in the majors since Jered Weaver had 15 straight quality starts from May 18-August 5, 2011.

Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 12 - Rockies vs Mets (Game 1 DH)

DENVER, CO - APRIL 01:  Relief pitcher Matt Li...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Final Score: Colorado 6, New York 5

Carlos Gonzalez hit a two-run homer and Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-4 with a solo shot, as the Colorado Rockies held on for a 6-5 win over the New York Mets in the opener of a doubleheader at Citi Field.

Jose Morales added a two-run double for Colorado, which has taken the first three in the four-game series and will go for its first-ever four-game sweep against the Mets in Game 2. The twinbill was made necessary due to Tuesday's rainout.

The Rockies have won five straight overall and improved to 9-2 on the young season.

Greg Reynolds (1-0) went five innings, allowing two runs on five hits and a pair of walks, and struck out a batter. Matt Lindstrom took over for a struggling Huston Street in the ninth and picked up his second save of the season.

Scott Hairston hit a two-run homer in the ninth and knocked in three for the Mets, who have dropped four straight and seven of eight. Jose Reyes extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a double and solo homer in defeat.
