Happy Recap: Game 134 - Mets (11) at Nationals (3) - Wheeler wins 7th, Mets score 11 Runs

N.Y. Mets (62-72)«02600003011170
Washington (68-67)0000020013110

W: Z. Wheeler (7-3) L: D. Haren (8-12)
HR: NYM - None   WAS - None


Seven New York Mets players drove in at least one run as the visitors pounded the Washington Nationals for 17 hits en route to a 11-3 victory.

Omar Quintanilla, Daniel Murphy, Juan Lagares and Eric Young Jr. had two RBI apiece while Ike Davis, Matt den Dekker and Zack Wheeler each drove in one run for the Mets, who have won three straight.

Wheeler (7-3) gave up two runs on five hits and a walk over 6 2/3 innings.

Jayson Werth, Denard Span and Ian Desmond all drove in a run for the Nationals, who have lost the first two games of this three-game set.

Dan Haren (8-12) struggled through 2 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs on nine hits to suffer his first loss since July 22.

The Mets got their offense going in the second. D'Arnaud and Lagares hit back-to-back one-out singles. After den Dekker struck out, Quintanilla ripped a two-out, two-RBI double to center.

An inning later, Young hit a leadoff single, stole second and scored on a Murphy single. Following a single by Josh Satin, Davis scored Murphy with a sacrifice fly to left.

Travis d'Arnaud and Lagares again delivered back-to-back singles but on the latter play, Satin was thrown out at the plate. With men on first and second, den Dekker singled to left for his first career RBI.

Haren was then replaced by Tanner Roark, who walked Quintanilla and Wheeler, allowing Lagares to score. He then gave up a two-run single to Young and the Mets had an 8-0 advantage.

Washington finally got on the board in the sixth. Anthony Rendon was hit by a pitch, Span singled up the middle and Bryce Harper was walked to load the bases. Werth hit a sacrifice fly to left and Desmond followed with an RBI single to left center.

However, New York added three runs in the eighth. Murphy smacked a one-out RBI double deep to right field. Later in the frame, Lagares knocked a two-out, two-RBI single to center.

Scott Atchison pitched the bottom of the ninth for the Mets. He gave up back- to-back infield singles to Jhonatan Solano and Steve Lombardozzi. Rendon and Span both grounded into a fielder's choice, but Span was able to score Solano. Atchison then gave up a single to pinch-hitter Chad Tracy but retired Harper to end the game.

Game Notes

The Mets are 34-34 on the road ... Young is 7-for-18 with five RBI, three runs scored and four stolen bases over his last four games ... Satin went 3-for-4 with a run scored ... D'Arnaud went 2-for-4 and scored twice ... Span is on a 14-game hitting streak ... The Mets hit 7-for-15 with runners in scoring position while the Nationals finished 1-for-9 with RISP ... New York's Jonathon Niese is scheduled to face Washington's Ross Ohlendorf is Sunday's series finale.

The Washington Nationals have been soaring offensively in a bid to stay in the playoff chase, though they came up empty in the series opener.

It's not likely to get any easier against one of the league's top rookie hurlers.

The Nationals will try to bounce back at the plate and win for the ninth time in 11 games Saturday night when they host Zack Wheeler and the New York Mets.

Washington had averaged 6.3 runs and hit .318 while winning eight of nine before being limited to a pair of solo home runs and four other hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Mets (61-72).

Although Ryan Zimmerman went 2 for 4 to raise his average to .381 over his last 10 games, Bryce Harper went 0 for 4 to end his career-best 11-game hitting streak. In his final at-bat, Harper failed to run hard on a groundout with men on first and second in the eighth inning.

"I don't think he does it intentionally, but he's going to have to start picking it up a little bit because we've got everybody else doing it," said bench coach Randy Knorr, who filled in after manager Davey Johnson left due to illness. "It's something that we've got to fix."

Happy Recap: Game 134 - Mets at Marlins - Bay Delivers, Mets Sweep Marlins

Marlins Park (Miami, FL)
N.Y. Mets (64-70) «500000000580
Miami (59-75)000010000160
W: C. Young (4-7) L: M. Buehrle (12-12)
HR: NYM - J. Bay (7)   MIA - None

Jason Bay broke out of a 10-for-83 slump and delivered two hits, including a first-inning grand slam to help the New York Mets down the Miami Marlins, 5-1, and complete a three-game sweep.

The Mets, winners in seven of their last eight games, swept the Marlins for the second time this season.

Chris Young (4-7) started for the Mets and pitched five innings. He struck out three and allowed just one run on five hits.

Mark Buehrle (12-12) allowed five runs, all in the first inning. He shook off the rough start and pitched seven innings for the Marlins, giving up six hits while striking out three.

The Mets scored the first run of the day when David Wright's groundout brought home Ronny Cedeno, who led off the inning with a double before moving to third when Justin Turner followed with a two-bagger.

Bay came to bat with the bases loaded after Buehrle allowed a two-out walk to Ike Davis and then hit Kelly Shoppach. Bay drove a fastball into right-center field and cleared the bases with his seventh homer of the season.

Coming into the game, the Mets outfielder had been hitting .152 in 158 at- bats. Since being regulated to a platoon player on Aug. 8, Bay has seen limited action.

"I didn't think I'd hit a grand slam in my first at-bat in a week but it's definitely nice," said Bay. The outfielder showed appreciation for his teammates constant encouragement, who continue to show faith in him. "I've had nothing but support from every one of these guys in here every single day no matter what happens."

The Marlins only run came in the bottom of the fifth inning, when catcher Rob Brantly drew a leadoff walk. Buehrle then moved him over with a bunt and Justin Ruggiano drove him in two batters later with a two-out double.

Young was finished after five and the Mets bullpen finished the job, pitching four shutout innings.

The Marlins have lost eight of their last 10 games.

"If we get down early, it's tough to come back," said Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton.

The Marlins will host the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday afternoon while the Mets will travel to St. Louis to face the Cardinals.

Game Notes

The Mets swept the Marlins on the road for the first time since May 25-27, 2007 ... Bay has hit six of his seven home runs on the road this season ... Stanton struck out three times Sunday, tying his career high with his fourth straight multiple strikeout game ... Buehrle had his three-game winning streak snapped.

Veteran lefty Mark Buehrle faces the New York Mets for just the third time in a decade-plus career in the big leagues Sunday when the Miami Marlins host them in the finale of a three-game series.

A 1998 draft choice of the Chicago White Sox, Buehrle was an American Leaguer from 2000-2011, winning 161 games in 390 appearances before signing a free- agent deal with the Marlins in the offseason.

The 33-year-old faced the Mets twice within a 16-day stretch in late April and early May, dropping his lone decision while combining to allow 13 hits and four runs in 14 2/3 innings.

New York beat him, 5-1, on April 25, while the Marlins won, 6-5, on May 11.

Buehrle was 5-8 on the season after a 7-5 loss at Boston on June 19, but he's won seven of nine decisions across 11 appearances since, including consecutive defeats of Philadelphia, Arizona and the Los Angeles Dodgers from Aug. 15-26.

He's opposed by fellow 33-year-old Chris Young, who was battered while dropping a 13-0 decision to the Marlins in New York on Aug. 8.

In that game, Young lasted just 4 1/3 innings while allowing seven hits and seven runs and watching his earned run average rise from 4.22 to 4.87.

He's winless in three starts since, dropping one decisions while combining to give up 17 hits and nine runs in 17 innings.

Preview: Game 134 - Marlins at Mets - Capuano tries to repeat his last performance

Florida Marlins (60-74) at New York Mets (64-69), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Florida - Chris Volstad (5-11, 5.61) New York - Chris Capuano (10-11, 4.43)

The New York Mets can wrap up a series win with a victory tonight versus the Florida Marlins in the fourth test of a five-game series from Citi Field.

The Mets swept a doubleheader on Monday to kick off the series, but dropped a 6-0 decision Tuesday. Mike Pelfrey had zero help from the offense and allowed four runs on six hits and four walks in six innings to suffer the loss.

"I didn't throw as many secondary pitches for strikes as I would have liked to or as I needed to," Pelfrey said. "That ended up being the difference."

Mets starters were 4-0 with a 1.29 ERA in the past four games until Pelfrey was banged around. David Wright and Josh Thole finished with two hits apiece for the Mets, who had won four in a row. Angel Pagan went 0-for-4, but has still reached base safely in 21 of 24 contests this month.

Chris Capuano will try to get New York on track when he takes the mound tonight and is coming off an impressive performance in Friday's 6-0 win over Atlanta. He tossed a two-hit shutout and struck out a career-high 13 batters to improve to 10-11 with a 4.43 ERA in 27 games (25 starts) this season.
