Happy Recap: Game 123 - Mets (6) at Padres (1) - Gee dominates Padres

N.Y. Mets (57-66)«1102001016141
Minnesota (54-69)000000100170
W: D. Gee (9-8) L: K. Gibson (2-4)
HR: NYM - M. Byrd (20)   MIN - None


Dillon Gee tossed 7 2/3 innings in the New York Mets' 6-1 win over the Minnesota Twins in a make-up Monday matinee.

Gee (9-8) struck out nine and surrendered just six hits and an unearned run along with a walk for the Mets, who had dropped five of their last seven games coming in.

"He was staying aggressive. His curveball was there, his slider was there, every single pitch," Mets rookie catcher Travis d'Arnaud said. "He was locating his fastball. He did an outstanding job."

Marlon Byrd was one of seven Mets to tally a pair of hits. He smacked a solo homer and scored twice in the triumph. Eric Young, Daniel Murphy, Andrew Brown, Wilmer Flores, Juan Lagares and Omar Quintanilla also registered two hits apiece.

Kyle Gibson (2-4) allowed four runs on 10 hits and two walks over 3 2/3 innings for Minnesota, which has lost four consecutive contests.

After 10 major league starts, Gibson was optioned back to Triple-A Rochester following the game.

"Obviously that's not good enough. There's a lot of stuff I need to work on," Gibson said. "Obviously I didn't take advantage of it like I wanted to. I didn't come up here and have the success I wanted to."

The Mets jumped out to a 4-0 lead after plating a run in the first, another in the second and two more in the third.

Brown had a bases-loaded RBI single in the first, while Young slapped a run- scoring single through the hole on the left side of the infield in the second to make it 2-0.

Quintanilla and Murphy tallied RBI singles in the fourth to give New York its four-run spread.

The teams traded runs in the seventh.

Flores bounced an RBI single through the hole on the right side of the infield in the top of the seventh, while Trevor Plouffe, who ripped a two-out double to right-center in the home seventh, scored when Murphy committed a fielding error on a grounder off the bat of Clete Thomas.

Byrd's solo homer into the second deck in left in the ninth capped the scoring.

Game Notes

Monday's tilt was originally supposed to be the finale of a three-game set played from April 12-14 ... The Mets moved to 10-4 in interleague play ... The Mets were 6-for-12 with runners in scoring position, while Minnesota finished 0-for-10 with RISP.

The New York Mets will close out their lengthy road trip Monday with a makeup game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.

The finale of a three-game series between the Mets and Twins on April 14 was postponed due to inclement weather. The Mets outscored the Twins, 20-7, in the first two matchups and have won four of the last five in this series.

New York just split a four-game set with the San Diego Padres and lost the last two contests at Petco Park, including Sunday's 4-3 setback. Matt Harvey was sharp through six innings and gave up two runs before the bullpen imploded. Gonzalez Germen and Pedro Feliciano each allowed a run with the latter taking the loss for yielding Will Venable's game-winning home run in the bottom of the ninth.

"I thought I had him 1-2 when I threw a slider," Feliciano said of Venable's homer. "But he's pretty hot right now, and he went down and got it out."

Marlon Byrd had two hits, an RBI and a run scored for the Mets, who are 4-6 so far on the road trip.

Recap: Game 123 - Mets (3) at Padres (4) - Mets Blow Harvey's Chance for Win

N.Y. Mets (56-66)100100100360

W: H. Street (1-4) L: P. Feliciano (0-2)
HR: NYM - None   SD - W. Venable (17)


Will Venable continued his torrid stretch and staked the San Diego Padres to a 4-3 victory after clubbing the game-winning home run in the ninth inning against the New York Mets.

Venable, who had four hits in Saturday's victory and added two more on Sunday to stretch his hitting streak to 15 games, sent a 1-2 offering from Pedro Feliciano (0-2) deep into right and it stayed just inside the foul pole for his 17th home run of the season. He finished the game with two RBI.

Chris Denorfia delivered a game-tying RBI in the eighth, while Alexi Amarista contributed a sacrifice fly to help the Padres earn a split of this four-game set. Huston Street (1-4) tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up the win.

Marlon Byrd ended 2-for-4 with an RBI and Wilmer Flores and Andrew Brown had an RBI apiece in the setback for New York.

Starter Matt Harvey pitched six innings of two-run ball and left in line for the win, but a lackluster performance from the bullpen forced him into a no decision.

With the game tied at 2-2 in the seventh and Omar Quintanilla standing at second base following his double, New York pinch hit for Harvey with Brown and the move paid off, with the righty clubbing a double off Padres starter Eric Stults into center to move the Mets in front.

The Padres left the bases loaded in the home eighth, but not before tying the score at 3-3. Chase Headley's double off Gonzalez Germen stayed just inside of the right field line and put runners at second and third, and Denorfia brought in the tying run with a slow rolling grounder toward short.

New York struck quickly in the opening inning. Justin Turner reached third base when he lofted a fly ball just past the diving stretch of Venable in center, and came in to score easily on Byrd's double into the left field gap.

Byrd helped the Mets get another run in the fourth. He led off with a single and hustled into third while Logan Forsythe bobbled a Josh Satin single in left. Flores lifted a fly to right and Byrd beat the throw home.

The Padres capitalized on Harvey's poor start to the fifth inning, in which he plunked leadoff man Forsythe and then served up a bloop single to Nick Hundley. Stults sacrificed the runners over and Venable brought a run in when he chopped an infield hit just out of Harvey's reach. Amarista knotted the score at 2-2 with sac fly to center.

Game Notes

Harvey struck out six and is winless in his last five road starts ... Stults turned in 6 2/3 innings and allowed three runs on six hits and two walks ... Hundley went 3-for-3 for San Diego ... Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud walked twice and remains hitless through his first two major league games.

Recap: Game 123 - Rockies at Mets - Mets Get Fowled Up 6-2

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)
Colorado (48-73) «000004011692
N.Y. Mets (57-66)000100100261
W: J. Chacin (1-3) L: C. Young (3-7)
HR: COL - None   NYM - None

Dexter Fowler drove in a pair of runs as the Colorado Rockies took a 6-2 win over the New York Mets in the second of a four-game set.

Charlie Blackmon scored twice and drove in a run while Jonathan Herrera had an RBI and a run scored for the Rockies, who have won three straight.

Jhoulys Chacin (1-3) was activated from the disabled list before the game and got his first win of the year as he gave up just one run on four hits over six innings.

"The win came about thanks to the starting pitching we got tonight," said Colorado manager Jim Tracy. "It was so nice to see him back on the mound and pitch as well as he did."

Daniel Murphy and Andres Torres each drove in a run for the Mets, who have dropped six of their last eight. Chris Young (3-7) gave up four runs -- two earned -- on five hits with a walk over seven innings in the loss.

Young carried a perfect game into the sixth inning, but it then fell apart starting with a leadoff single by D.J. LeMahieu. Herrera followed with a single and Chacin laid down a bunt which Young fielded, but he threw it away and LeMahieu came home to tie the game.

It didn't stay tied long, though, as Blackmon dropped a bloop single to shallow left to plate Herrera. Two batters later, Fowler singled home another run and Ramon Hernandez followed with a sacrifice fly to open up a 4-1 lead.

"After he made the throwing error, they just kept pecking away at him," said Mets manager Terry Collins about Young. "They got some hits and ran the bases real well from then on."

The Mets almost got a run back in the bottom of the sixth as David Wright singled with Ruben Tejada on second, but Andrew Brown gunned down Tejada at home to end the inning.

New York did get one back in the seventh on a sac fly from Torres that scored Jordany Valdespin, who doubled and stole third, but Fowler answered in the eighth with an RBI single to score Blackmon, who doubled two batter prior, for a 5-2 game.

Brown doubled to start the ninth and moved to third on a sac bunt from LeMahieu. Herrera then hit a grounder to first and Brown was caught in a run- down between third and home, but no one was covering the plate on Wright's throw back to home and it was a 6-2 game.

Rex Brothers set the Mets down quietly in the ninth to end the game.

The Mets got the first run of the game in the fourth inning when Murphy's sacrifice fly scored Tejada.

Game Notes

Collins was ejected in the fifth inning after arguing a run-down call ... Chacin had been out since early May with right shoulder inflammation. The team also placed outfielder Eric Young Jr. on the 15-day disabled list for a left intercostals muscle strain ... Colorado has won three of the five games against New York this season ... On Monday, the Mets recalled pitcher Robert Carson from Triple-A Buffalo and placed pitcher Jeremy Hefner on the paternity leave list.

Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin returns to the majors for the first time since May when the Colorado Rockies visit the New York Mets in the second of four games at Citi Field.

A 24-year-old Venezuelan, Chacin was 0-3 in five starts to begin the season before being placed on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation on May 2.

The DL trip came a day after Chacin's third loss, in which he was roughed up for 11 hits and seven runs in just 4 2/3 innings of a 7-6 loss to Los Angeles.

In 24 2/3 innings across five outings, he's allowed 20 runs on 31 hits and walked 15 batters, while surrendering a .304 opposition batting average.

Chacin was an 11-game winner in 31 starts last season and allowed a .231 average.

He's posted a 1.29 earned run average in seven innings against the Mets over two career appearances.

New York starts Chris Young, a 33-year-old with just one win since late June.

The Texas-born right-hander was 2-1 on the season after defeating Los Angeles, 3-2, on June 28, but has since dropped five of six decisions while watching his ERA swell from 3.30 to 4.50.

He tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings in a tough-luck no-decision against Cincinnati on Aug. 14, in a game the Reds won, 3-0.

Happy Recap : Game 123 - Mets at Padres - Wright Leads Mets into Victory!

Final Score: New York 7, San Diego 3

David Wright hit a three-run homer to back 6 2/3 strong innings from Dillon Gee, as the New York Mets downed the San Diego Padres, 7-3, in the rubber match of a three-game series.

Gee (11-4) allowed just one run on five hits and four walks while fanning five to earn the win.

Angel Pagan had three RBI for the Mets, who won a series in San Diego for the first time since 2002.

Mat Latos (6-12) allowed three runs on four hits over six innings to suffer the loss. He struck out six and walked two.

Aaron Cunningham, Nick Hundley and Alberto Gonzalez each had RBI doubles for the Padres.

In the bottom of the first, a Jason Bartlett single and a Cameron Maybin double placed runners at second and third with one out, but Gee struck out Jesus Guzman and grounded out Orlando Hudson to escape.

With Pagan and Willie Harris aboard in the third, Wright lifted a 2-2 fastball over the wall in left.

Latos drew a leadoff walk in the home half, but Gee struck out Will Venable, then made a behind-the-back grab on a Bartlett grounder to initiate a 1-6-3 double play.

In the fourth, Maybin worked a leadoff walk and reached second with two down. Logan Forsythe then ripped a grounder down the third base line. Wright made the diving stop and faked the throw to first before tagging out Maybin, who had rounded third on the fake throw.

Preview/Mets Lineup: Game 123 - Mets at Padres - Gee goes for Win #11

New York Mets (59-63) at San Diego Padres (55-69), 6:35 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Dillon Gee (10-4, 4.07) San Diego - Mat Latos (6-11, 3.80)

Coming off a tough loss to the Padres last night, the New York Mets can still capture a rare series win in San Diego with a victory this evening in the finale of a three-game set from Petco Park.

New York hasn't won a series in San Diego since May 16-19, 2002 at Qualcomm Stadium and is only 4-12 at Petco Park since 2007. Overall it owns an 8-18 record since the new stadium opened in '04.

The Mets were aiming for their second win in a row on Tuesday, but dropped a 6-1 decision after ending a five-game losing streak with a 5-4 triumph in 10 innings in Monday's series opener. Jonathon Niese suffered his 10th loss (11-10) of the season and gave up three runs and 10 hits in six innings.

"Jon pitched good again," Mets manager Terry Collins told the club's website. "A couple runs in the first inning, but you look up and he threw the ball very well. He keeps you in the game."

Ruben Tejada had two hits and an RBI for the Mets, who are just 4-12 in their previous 16 games and 13-18 since the All-Star break. Angel Pagan went 0-for-3 and saw his hitting streak end at nine games. He batted .366 during the run. New York is 1-4 on a six-game road trip and will return to Citi Field for a weekend series versus the Milwaukee Brewers.

Drawing the start for the Mets tonight will be Dillon Gee. Gee has never faced the Padres and is 5-2 with a 4.76 earned run average in 11 road assignments (10 starts) this season. He did, however, lose at Arizona in Friday's 4-3 setback and was reached for four runs and five hits over five innings of work. The loss dropped Gee to 10-4 in 22 games, 19 of which are starts, this season and raised his ERA to 4.07.
