Preview: Game 13
New York Mets (5-7) at Arizona Diamondbacks (4-11)
Pitching Probables - Zack Wheeler (0-2) 5.73 ERA vs  Josh Collmenter (0-0) 2.25 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 - 9:40 PM


The New York Mets (5-7) will try and forget the dredging they got in Anaheim, as they were 14-2 losers. The Diamondbacks are trying to figure out how to win (4-11) and according to reports, has skipper Kirk Gibson on the hot seat. The D-Backs Rotation has been hit with injuries (Patrick Corbin) and Randall Delgado has not performed, so Josh Collmenter who spent much of his career in the bullpen will start for them. The Mets players on the team have seen him in relief have 43 AB's and have 16 hits (.372) off him. Ike Davis has a HR off Collmenter and David Wright has 2 HR's vs Collmenter in his career.

The Mets will counter will young Zack Wheeler. He has gotten beaten up a bit in his last two starts (5.73 ERA)...In Atlanta on April 9th,  he only got through 5 innings, giving up 8 hits, giving up 4 earned runs.. Wheeler (0-2) has pitched in Arizona going 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA. Six Players on the current D'Backs roster are hitting .312 combined with 1 HR vs Wheeler in their career. Aaron Hill hit the HR.

Wheeler has to improve to keep the D'Backs off the board and the Mets have to put up runs. Ike Davis looks like he might get the start.

My Predicted Mets Lineup:

  1. Eric Young Jr. - LF

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 13 - Giants at Mets - Mets Drop a Heartbreaker

Final Score: San Francisco 4, New York 3 (10 innings)

Hector Sanchez singled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning, boosting San Francisco to a 4-3 win over the Mets.

Angel Pagan homered against his former team and the Giants scored three third- inning runs, but New York forced an extra frame when Josh Thole's base hit plated the tying tally with one out in the ninth.

Frank Francisco (0-1) walked Melky Cabrera to start the 10th. Cabrera stole second with one out and Nate Schierholtz was intentionally walked with two down. Sanchez then hit a soft line single to center field. The ball was bobbled by Kirk Nieuwenhuis and the throw came to third base with a safe call there.

Sergio Romo gave up singles to Daniel Murphy and David Wright to start the New York 10th. Clay Hensley then got Ike Davis to ground out to second on a ball that shattered the bat, moving both runners into scoring position. Jason Bay struck out to set the stage for Lucas Duda.

He took a called first strike and then fouled off four straight pitches before taking a pair of balls. The left-handed hitter then flied out to center field, securing the first save of the year for Hensley with Romo (1-0) getting the win.

Pagan, who was traded by the Mets to San Francisco in December, homered leading off the third against Jon Niese. Buster Posey had the fourth straight hit for the Giants, an RBI double. Niese's wild pitch then plated Pablo Sandoval.

Bay homered to left with two down in the fourth and Nieuwenhuis went deep the opposite way to left leading off the bottom of the fifth.

Nieuwenhuis made a diving catch at the warning track to end the top of the eighth off a ball hit by Sanchez.

With men on first and second in the ninth, Thole capped his eight-pitch at-bat with a ground single into right field. That snapped a 12-inning scoreless stretch for the San Francisco bullpen.

Game Notes

Sandoval has hit safely in all 13 games this season. His 13-game streak is three shy of the club record held by Willie Mays, accomplished in 1960...The Giants went 2-for-14 with men in scoring position and are 6-for-53 in those situations in their last five games...Wright has a 10-game hitting streak. He also walked twice and has reached base safely at least twice in all 10 games he's played this season, the longest stretch to start a campaign in team history. Wright also has played in 1,116 games, tying Mookie Wilson for sixth place on the club's all-time list...Giants starter Barry Zito lasted five innings, while Niese threw six frames.

Preview - Game 13 - Giants at Mets - Lefty Pitchers Duel

San Francisco Giants (6-6) at New York Mets (7-5), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: San Francisco - Barry Zito (1-0, 1.13) New York - Jon Niese (2-0, 2.13)

Barry Zito looks to continue his excellent start to the season this evening as he takes the hill for the San Francisco Giants in the opener of a four-game series against the New York Mets.

Injuries held Zito to just 13 appearances last season and he went 3-4 with a 5.87 earned run average. The left-hander has looked in top form so far in 2012, going 1-0 with a 1.13 earned run average in his two starts.

Zito opened his season with a four-hit shutout in Colorado, striking out four without a walk. He then got a no-decision versus the Pirates on Saturday, getting charged with three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and a walk over seven frames of his club's 4-3 win.

The 33-year-old has faced the Mets six times in his career, going 3-2 with a 3.31 ERA.

Zito may have to be in top form this evening as the Giants were held to two runs or less for the third time in four games on Wednesday against the Phillies. However, thanks in part to starter Matt Cain, San Francisco managed a 1-0 victory in 11 innings.

Cain out-dueled Phillies starter Cliff Lee, who threw 10 scoreless innings. Cain, meanwhile, allowed only two hits and one walk over nine scoreless frames and the Giants won when Melky Cabrera knocked in the winning run off Philadelphia's bullpen.

"That was really fun to be a part of. It was nonstop back-and-forth. Both of us trying to throw a lot of strikes and get guys out," said Cain, who retired the final 13 batters he faced.

Cabrera finished with three hits for San Francisco, which took two of three in the series and have won five of seven overall.

Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 13 - Rockies vs Mets (Game 2 DH)

Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop in 2007.
Final Score: Colorado 9, New York 4

Jonathan Herrera hit a three-run homer during a six-run sixth inning, as the Colorado Rockies completed their first ever four-game sweep of the New York Mets with a 9-4 win in the conclusion of a doubleheader.

In the opener of the twinbill, which was made necessary due to Tuesday's rainout, Carlos Gonzalez hit a two-run homer and Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-4 with a solo shot in a 6-5 win.

The second contest featured Tulowitzki homering for a fourth straight game, while Dexter Fowler was 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored for the Rockies, who have won six straight to improve to 10-2.

Jorge De La Rosa (2-0) went 6 2/3 innings to get the win. He gave up four runs on five hits with four walks and seven strikeouts.

Jose Reyes and Mike Nickeas both drove in two runs for the Mets, who have dropped five in a row and eight of nine. Chris Capuano (1-1) was tagged for seven runs on eight hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings, and fanned five.

The Mets were holding a 4-2 lead going into the sixth inning, but the Rockies surged ahead in the frame.

Tulowitzki led off the frame by ripping the first pitch he saw over the left field wall. Later in the frame with the bases loaded and one out, De La Rosa hit a grounder to second that had the potential to be a double play, but Brad Emaus bobbled the ball and was only able to get the force at second with the tying run coming home. Fowler then singled home the go-ahead run and Taylor Buchholz took over on the mound.

After a passed ball moved the batters up a base, Herrera deposited a pitch over the right field wall for his first home run of the season and an 8-4 lead.

Ty Wigginton's RBI single in the ninth scored Gonzalez for a 9-4 lead.

After the fourth inning, the Mets only got one runner to third base the rest of the game with Felipe Paulino working the ninth to close the series sweep.

Nickeas hit a two-run double in the second to give the Mets a 2-0 lead, but Colorado countered in the third on an RBI single from Fowler and a fielder's choice grounder that plated a run from Gonzalez to tie the game.

Reyes' two-run single with two outs in the fourth gave the Mets a 4-2 lead.

Game Notes

Tulowitzki leads the majors in homers this season with seven homers...The Mets open a three-game series in Atlanta on Friday...Colorado heads home to face the Cubs for a three-game set beginning on Friday...These teams split six games last season.
