The New York Mets didn't have much going for them during another dismal season other than Matt Harvey making a run at becoming the team's second consecutive NL Cy Young Award winner.

With the phenom now sidelined with a serious injury, Carlos Torres will take Harvey's place on the mound Thursday against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies.

The Mets (59-72) are headed toward their fifth straight losing season, and it got even worse when they found out Harvey's MRI revealed a torn ligament in his pitching elbow that will likely sideline him for the rest of 2013.

Harvey had a 2.27 ERA and was vying to follow R.A. Dickey as New York's second straight Cy Young winner, but his spot in the rotation will now be filled by Torres.

Torres (2-2, 2.96 ERA) hasn't started since giving up eight runs and nine hits in three innings of a 14-1 loss to Washington on July 28. The right-hander posted a 2.65 ERA in 13 relief appearances since, most recently going two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Phillies.

Philadelphia's Ethan Martin (2-2, 6.33) went two-thirds of an inning in his last outing as well -- but that was a start. The rookie right-hander allowed three runs and three hits while walking three -- all coming after he retired the first two batters -- in Saturday's 12-7, 18-inning loss to Arizona.

Happy Recap: Game 132 - Mets at Marlins - Dickey Pitches A Complete Game Shutout, Mets Win 3-0

Marlins Park (Miami, FL)
N.Y. Mets (62-70) «000100200341
Miami (59-73)000000000050
W: R. Dickey (17-4) L: N. Eovaldi (4-10)
HR: NYM - I. Davis (25)   MIA - None

R.A. Dickey's magical season continued as the New York Mets took the opener of a three-game set against the Miami Marlins, 3-0.

Dickey (17-4) matched the Cincinnati Reds' Johnny Cueto atop the National League leaderboard in wins and tossed his NL-best third shutout and fifth complete game.

"When you look what he's done the entire year, he's racked up numbers against every team in baseball," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "No matter who he's faced, he's pitched great."

The knuckle-baller gave up five hits and struck out seven with three walks. He lowered his earned run average to 2.63 in the process.

"He was good," Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said. "I think it was the best I've ever seen him throw."

"Tonight I didn't have a great feel for (the knuckle ball) at the beginning of the game," Dickey said. "As the night went on I was getting big swings and movement, like I'm accustomed to getting."

Ike Davis knocked in three runs and provided the big blow for the Mets' offense, crushing a two-run home run in the seventh inning to send the Mets to their fifth win in six games.

Nathan Eovaldi (4-10) took the loss despite matching a career best with seven innings pitched. He gave up three runs on four hits and a walk.

The Mets jumped ahead with a run in the fourth inning. Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy singled to start the inning and put runners on the corners. After David Wright failed to get the run home, Davis delivered a sacrifice fly to center field to put the Mets on top.

New York added to its lead in the seventh inning. Wright started the frame with a base hit before Davis hammered a hanging curve over the right-field fence to expand the lead to three.

"Just a curveball I saw pretty well," Davis said. "I usually don't hit those very well so it's kind of surprising that I hit it."

The Marlins had their best opportunity to score in the eighth inning. Dickey walked Austin Kearns to start the inning and gave up a one-out single to Justin Ruggiano.

That set up the middle of Miami's lineup with runners in scoring position, but Jose Reyes, who struck out with two outs and a runner in scoring position in the third, grounded out and Carlos Lee flew out.

Dickey retired the Mets in order in the ninth to finish off his ninth-career complete game and fifth shutout.

Game Notes

The Mets lead the season series, 6-4...New York has homered in seven straight games...The Mets went hitless in their only at-bat with a runner in scoring position and are 8-for-their-last-58 in those situations...Dickey became the first Met to throw five complete games in a season since Dwight Gooden threw seven in 1993...Dickey went seven innings and allowed less than two runs for the 15th time this season, most in the NL...Miami second baseman Donovan Solano went 0-for-4, ending his hitting streak at 12 games.

N. Eovaldi (R) 16 4-9 4.545.01-43.748/24@LADL3.0761-214.25.52

Veteran right-hander R.A. Dickey tries to gain a share of the National League lead in victories tonight when the New York Mets visit the Miami Marlins for the opener of a three-game series at Marlins Park.

Dickey earned victory No. 16 in his last start on Aug. 25 against Houston after scattering five hits and allowing a single run in seven innings in a 3-1 defeat of the Astros.

The 37-year-old from Nashville is second in the league in wins, trailing Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto, who earned his 17th triumph of 2012 earlier this week.

Dickey last faced the Marlins on Aug. 9 in New York and was a 6-1 winner following a complete-game gem in which he struck out 10, walked none and allowed five hits and a single run.

He's 8-3 in 13 road starts this season with a 3.10 earned run average in 87 innings.

Miami opposes him with 22-year-old righty Nathan Eovaldi, who starts for the seventh time since joining the Marlins earlier this season.

The Houston native was drafted by the Dodgers in 2008 and reached the majors with them last season, going 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA in 10 appearances - including six starts.

He was 1-6 in 10 starts with them to start 2012, then headed east to Miami in the July 25 deal that sent Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers.

Happy Recap : Game 132 - Marlins at Mets - Gee Pitches Gem, Sweep Double Header

Final Score: New York 5, Florida 1

Dillon Gee turned in another strong pitching performance for the Mets, giving up a run over six innings to help them to a 5-1 victory and doubleheader sweep against the Marlins.

New York won Monday's first game, 2-1, after R.A. Dickey pitched seven scoreless frames.

Gee (12-5) followed that effort by allowing six hits, walking two and striking out six. He gave up his only run when Greg Dobbs blasted a homer in the sixth.

But the Marlins' inability to score any more runs sent them to their ninth loss in their last 11 games.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Game 1: Florida - Anibal Sanchez (7-6, 4.01) New York - R.A. Dickey (5-11, 3.72)

Game 2: Florida - Ricky Nolasco (9-9, 4.30) New York - Dillon Gee (11-5, 4.37)

Both the New York Mets and Florida Marlins had their schedules altered this past weekend due to the impact of Hurricane Irene and will begin a five-game series today with a doubleheader at Citi Field.

The Mets had their last two games of a weekend series with Atlanta postponed because of inclement weather and the Marlins' three-game series in Philadelphia was cut down to one game as well.

New York has won two straight games since a five-game slide and defeated the Braves, 6-0, last Friday at home. Lucas Duda had three hits, two RBI and a pair of runs scored, while Angel Pagan and Ruben Tejada recorded three hits apiece for the Mets, who had a 14-2 advantage in hits and received a stellar showing from starter Chris Capuano.

Capuano tossed a two-hit shutout and fanned 13 batters. It was his third career shutout and fourth complete game.

"I think it has to be (one of the best starts of my career)," said Capuano. "I've had a couple of shutouts before, but this one at this point of the season and after a rocky last month and a half or so certainly feels like one of the best."

Capuano's previous career-high in strikeouts was 12 against Cleveland on June 16, 2006, when he pitched for Milwaukee. He hadn't reached double-digits in strikeouts since June 2, 2007 when he had 10.

Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is expected to continue his quest for a batting title tonight and has been sidelined since early August with a strained left hamstring. He worked out the kinks with Double-A Binghamton. Meanwhile, outfielder Jason Bay has been out since Wednesday with a shoulder ailment and is expected to return tonight.

"I played Wednesday, it was pretty sore. I just thought I would get the off- day," Bay said on the team's site. "I got here, it was still sore. So we ran to the hospital and got an MRI really quick just to make sure."

The MRI revealed no structural damage.

R.A. Dickey gets the call for the Mets in the opener of this twinbill and is 5-11 with a 3.72 earned run average in 27 games (26 starts). He is 0-3 in his previous five starts and has recorded two straight no-decisions, including a 6-2 loss to Milwaukee last Sunday. He tossed seven innings of two-run ball.

Dickey is 3-2 with a 5.63 ERA in seven career games (5 starts) against the Marlins. The knuckleballer is only 1-8 in 14 home starts this season.

Due to Hurricane, Mets have postponed Saturday and Sunday's games at Citi Field

With Hurricane Irene looming on the horizon, the New York Mets have postponed Saturday and Sunday's games against the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field.

Both games will be made up as a single-admission doubleheader Sept. 8.

The Mets were hoping to get Saturday's game in and had discussed moving the start time from 4:10 p.m. to 1:10 p.m. or 12:10 p.m., but they needed approval from city officials, which was not granted.

The New York Times reported that the city's mass transit system will be shut down at noon Saturday, making a game impractical.

The weekend cancellations alleviate the need for two starters during next week's series against the Florida Marlins. The Mets still need a replacement that series for Jon Niese, who was placed on the disabled list on Wednesday with an intercostal muscle strain, with Miguel Batista appearing logical after he was promoted Friday.

Major League Baseball already had moved Sunday's games at Philadelphia and Boston to Saturday to make them part of day-night doubleheaders. The Phillies play the Marlins and the Red Sox play the Athletics.
