Happy Recap: Game 133 - Mets (3) at Nationals (2) - Ike Davis Finally hits HR, Gee Pitches Great

N.Y. Mets (61-72)«000200010370
Washington (68-66)001000010260

W: D. Gee (10-9) L: J. Zimmermann (15-8) S: L. Hawkins (6)
HR: NYM - I. Davis (9)   WAS - W. Ramos (9),S. Lombardozzi (2)


Dillon Gee tossed 7 2/3 strong innings to help the New York Mets take the opener of a three-game set from the Washington Nationals, 3-2.

Ike Davis cranked his ninth home run for New York while Daniel Murphy scored twice and contributed two hits in the victory, including his third double in his last two games.

Gee (10-9) was tagged for two runs on six hits while striking out three. He has now gone at least six innings in 12 straight outings.

"I just want to give the team a chance to win every time I'm out there," Gee said. "I feel like if I do that then I'll be happy."

Jordan Zimmermann (15-8) failed to become the National League's first 16- game winner after getting reached for all three runs on six hits in 7 2/3 innings.

Wilson Ramos broke a scoreless tie in the home half of the third inning when he drove a hanging breaking ball out to left for a solo home run.

New York claimed the lead a half inning later on Davis' opposite field blast to left. Murphy, who singled to lead off the frame, scored in front of Davis to give the visitors a 2-1 lead.

"It was a changeup that was up a little bit," Zimmermann said of Davis' homer.

The Mets added a crucial insurance run in the top of the eighth. Murphy doubled and scored with two outs when Andrew Brown hit a dribbler to Ryan Zimmerman at third base. Zimmerman's throw to Adam LaRoche at first landed short of the bag, allowing Brown to reach safely while Murphy crossed home plate.

Steve Lombardozzi, pinch-hitting with two away in the eighth, launched the second pitch he saw from Gee over the fence in right to bring the Nats within a run at 3-2. Gee then surrendered singles to Denard Span and Zimmerman before giving way to lefty Scott Rice, who retired Bryce Harper to hold the Mets' lead.

Forty-year-old LaTroy Hawkins came on in the ninth and retired the side in order for his sixth save of the season.

Game Notes

Prior to the game, Vic Black became the final player sent to New York in a deal that saw the Mets ship John Buck and Marlon Byrd to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Mets had previously received Dilson Herrera in the deal ... Travis d'Arnaud had two hits for the first time in his major league career ... New York hit 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position ... The loss snaps Washington's three-game winning streak ... Span extended his hitting streak to 13 games, while Harper's 11-game streak came to an end.

The Washington Nationals are making a late push for the playoffs, and sending Jordan Zimmermann and his NL high-tying 15 wins to the mound Friday night should give them another opportunity to make up ground in the wild-card race.

The right-hander, though, has yet to earn a victory this year against the New York Mets, who look to get another dominant performance in the season series from Dillon Gee.

Washington swept three games from Miami and won for the 14th time in 19 contests with a 9-0 victory Thursday night. The Nationals' hot stretch has enabled them to pull within 6 1/2 games of Cincinnati for the second wild-card spot.

"We're a scary team when we're going good, and I think everybody knows that," outfielder Bryce Harper said.

Ian Desmond and Jayson Werth hit three-run homers, and Harper added a two-run shot Thursday to extend his career-best hitting streak to 11 games as Washington improved to 8-1 in its last nine contests. Desmond is 13 for 26 with three homers and eight RBIs over the last six games.

Happy Recap: Game 133 - Mets at Marlins - Mets Edge Out Marlins 5-3

Marlins Park (Miami, FL)
N.Y. Mets (63-70) «000010004570
Miami (59-74)001001010371
W: R. Ramirez (3-3) L: S. Cishek (4-2)
S: F. Francisco (23)
HR: NYM - None   MIA - None

Kelly Shoppach knocked in the go-ahead run with a single to highlight a four-run ninth inning, as the New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins, 5-3, in the middle test of a three-game set.

With runners on first and second Lucas Duda ripped a single to center to score Daniel Murphy.

After Mike Baxter popped out, Andres Torres walked to load the bases. Shoppach delivered a base hit up the middle. Marlins center fielder Justin Ruggiano charged the ball to attempt a throw home, but the ball bounced off the heel of his glove and rolled past him, allowing all three runners to score.

"Things like that in that situation in this game, no matter where you are in the season, those are always big moments," Shoppach said. "Not only personally, but as far as the momentum we have going for us."

Frank Francisco pitched a perfect ninth to nail down the win for New York. It was his 23rd save of the year and sealed New York's sixth win in seven games.

Ramon Ramirez (3-3) earned the victory, despite giving up a run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Josh Johnson worked eight strong innings, allowing just one run on three hits while striking out four, but Steve Cishek (4-2) couldn't close the door in the ninth.

"It is disappointing, we played awesome today," Cishek said. "Getting the extra run makes it a little more comfortable, but they squared it up pretty good and ground balls didn't find anyone they got the job done. It happens."

The Marlins got on the board in the third when Bryan Peterson doubled to score Donovan Solano.

New York tied the game in the fifth when Baxter scored on a Josh Thole groundout. Baxter broke up Johnson's no-hit bid with a leadoff double to left- center field then moved to third when Torres grounded out.

Miami took the lead once again in the sixth when Jose Reyes scored on Giancarlo Stanton's infield single. Back-to-back base hits from Reyes and Carlos Lee put runners on the corners before Stanton cued one down the first base line and beat Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner to the bag.

The Marlins added another run in the eighth when Lee singled home Reyes.

"These guys are going to play it out, they're going to play it out hard," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "I just think there is a lot of fight left."

Game Notes

New York leads the season series 7-4 ... Prior to the game the Mets recalled catcher Mike Nickeas and infielder Zach Lutz from Buffalo Triple-A ... Reyes stole his 400th career base ... Hefner started for New York. He allowed two runs on six hits and struck out four ... Johnson is winless in his last five starts. His last win came Aug. 3 against the Washington Nationals.

Rookie right-hander Jeremy Hefner can match a teammate's pitching gem with one of his own on Saturday when the New York Mets visit Marlins Park for the second test of a three-game weekend series with the Miami Marlins.

On Friday, New York starter R.A. Dickey (17-4) joined the Cincinnati Reds' Johnny Cueto atop the National League leaderboard in wins and tossed his NL- best third shutout and fifth complete game in beating the Marlins, 3-0.

"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 knuckleballer 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."

"I didn't have a great feel for (the knuckleball) 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.

Recap: Game 133 - Marlins at Mets - Vazquez, Marlins Shut Out Mets

Final Score: Florida 6, New York 0

Javier Vazquez whiffed Lucas Duda to pick up his 2,500th career strikeout and end the sixth inning. Then he helped the Marlins put together the winning rally.

The pitcher's bunt single was part of a five-run seventh inning Florida used to beat the Mets, 6-0, at Citi Field.

Vazquez (8-11) threw seven scoreless innings, allowing only three hits and a walk to pick up his first victory since July 27. He needed six strikeouts to become only the 30th pitcher in major league history to reach the milestone, and got it when he punched out Duda with a low changeup.

Logan Morrison hit a two-run single for Florida, which was swept by the Mets in Monday's doubleheader.

Mets starter Mike Pelfrey (7-11) held the Marlins off the scoreboard for six innings, but couldn't get an out in the seventh and was charged with four runs.

New York managed only six hits as its four-game win streak came to an end.

Florida Marlins (59-74) at New York Mets (64-68), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Florida - Javier Vazquez (7-11, 4.63) New York - Mike Pelfrey (7-10, 4.60)

The New York Mets welcomed back All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes in yesterday's doubleheader sweep of the Florida Marlins and will shoot for a fifth straight win tonight in the continuation of a five-game series.

Reyes did not play in the opener of the twin-bill, a 2-1 triumph spurred on by seven shutout innings from starter R.A. Dickey. The knuckleballer yielded seven hits, struck out six batters and walked one.

Lucas Duda had three hits and both Josh Thole and Justin Turner ended with an RBI apiece for New York. Reyes went 1-for-4 with a run scored in a 5-1 win during the nightcap and was in action for the first time since Aug. 7 versus Atlanta because of a strained left hamstring.

"This is my first game back," said Reyes, who's in the running for a batting title. "I need to get my confidence back before I do anything crazy on the field."

David Wright went 2-for-4 with two RBI, while starter Dillon Gee threw six innings of one-run ball with six K's for the win. The Mets have won four in a row -- the longest streak since pulling off five straight wins July 25-29. They are still 6-11 in their last 17 games and 18-23 since the All-Star break.
