Recap: Game 144 - Nats (3) at Mets (0) - Mets Shut Out Again at Home

Washington (76-69)«0000010203110
N.Y. Mets (64-80)000000000030

W: D. Haren (9-13) L: Z. Wheeler (7-5) S: R. Soriano (41)
HR: WAS - R. Zimmerman (22)   NYM - None


Dan Haren threw one-hit ball for six innings, Zimmerman hit another home run and the Nationals won their fifth straight game, beating the New York Mets 3-0 on Wednesday in a night full of 9/11 tributes.

The Nationals improved to 22-9 in their late charge toward a playoff spot. They remained six games behind Cincinnati for the final NL wild-card spot with only 17 to play.

Zimmerman hit his fifth home run in five games. He also stole a base, but was hit in the back by the throw and left in the bottom of the ninth. Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Zimmerman was stiff and would get treatment.

Zack Wheeler (7-5) allowed a run on eight hits and a walk over seven innings for New York, which has dropped eight of its last 10 contests.

The Nationals added insurance in the eighth when Rendon banged a two-out, two- run double off the base of the wall in left-center to make it 3-0.  Denard Span extended his hitting streak to a career-high 22 games...

Game Notes

Mets manager Terry Collins was wearing an NYPD hat during batting practice in honor of those affected by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks 12 years ago ... Haren fired 59 of his 86 pitches for strikes ... Washington was 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

Zack Wheeler aims for his second win against the Washington Nationals in 12 days on Wednesday Night, when the New York Mets host them for the third game of a four-game series at Citi Field.

The 23-year-old, a former first-round pick of the San Francisco Giants, was an 11-3 winner over the Nationals on Aug. 31 after going 6 2/3 innings and allowing two runs on five hits with one walk and three strikeouts.

Wheeler took an 8-1 loss at Cleveland in one subsequent start to fall to 7-4 as a rookie.

He's 2-3 in six starts at Citi Field this season, the last of which came Aug. 26 and ended in a 2-1 loss to Philadelphia. Wheeler's last home win was six days earlier against Atlanta.

Overall, in two previous meetings with the Nationals, he is 1-1 and has given up seven runs on 11 hits in 11 1/3 innings of work, holding Washington batters to a .250 average.

Happy Recap: Game 144 - Mets at Brewers - Mets Top Brew Crew 7-3

Miller Park (Milwaukee, Wis.)
N.Y. Mets (66-78) «2200030007111
Milwaukee (72-72)020000001392

W: J. Niese (11-9) L: M. Fiers (9-8)
HR: NYM - D. Murphy (6),L. Duda (14)   MIL - None

Daniel Murphy stroked a two-run homer and Lucas Duda added a solo shot to lead the New York Mets to a 7-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game set at Miller Park.

Ike Davis and Josh Thole also drove in a run for the Mets, who had dropped eight of their last nine entering the game.

"They (the Brewers) play great here," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "They're still in the (playoff) hunt. If they make a mistake we have to capitalize, and tonight we did."

Jonathon Niese (11-9) gave up two runs on six hits and struck out five over six innings to snap a three-start losing streak.

Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 and Travis Ishikawa, Nyjer Morgan and Mike Fiers each knocked in a run for the Brewers, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Fiers (9-8) was tagged for four runs on six hits and struck out four over five innings to absorb the loss.

"Larry was tight. I know pitchers want pitches off the plate, but there weren't many that Larry missed," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of home plate umpire Larry Vanover." We haven't played this type of game in quite a while. We're going to have one every once in a while. No one expected us to be in this thing (the wild card race), but we got back in it. We just didn't play that well today.

The Mets pushed two across in each of the first two innings.

In the first, Murphy walked then moved to third on David Wright's double to left field. Davis followed with a ground out to first base, allowing Murphy to score.

Duda then ripped a ground-rule double to right field to score Wright.

In the second, Niese singled before Murphy smacked a two-run homer over the right-field wall.

The Brewers got two back in the home half to cut it to 4-2. Jonathan Lucroy singled, moved to second on a Carlos Gomez bloop single, then scored when Ishikawa hit a ground-rule double to left field.

Two batters later, Fiers helped his own cause with a single to score Ishikawa.

New York added three in the sixth inning to push its lead to 7-2.

Duda opened the inning with his 14th homer of the season. After a Jordany Valdespin pop out, Andres Torres reached on a throwing error before coming around on a Thole double. Niese's infield single allowed Thole to move to third before crossing the plate on Ruben Tejada's ground out.

Milwaukee added a run in the ninth when Morgan roped a triple to right-center field to score Jean Segura.

Game Notes

Niese walked three batters for the first time in his last 18 starts in which he went at least six innings ... New York was just 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position ... Wright, who went 2-for-5, extended his hitting streak to eight games ... The Brewers fell to 11-17 against the NL East ... Milwaukee went 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left eight on base.

J. Niese (L) 27 10-9 3.475.25-43.209/7ATLL6.0510-319.03.32
M. Fiers (R) 18 9-7 3.056.04-42.659/8@STLW5.0512-115.23.45

Right-hander Mike Fiers tries for the 10th win of his major-league career Friday when the Milwaukee Brewers host the New York Mets to begin a three-game weekend series at Miller Park.

The Hollywood, Fla. native allowed two hits in two scoreless relief innings with the Brewers last season, then debuted this season in late May and posted a 1.96 earned run average through 10 outings while winning just three times.

He's been more successful with wins and losses since, however, going 6-3 in his last nine appearances, though the ERA has climbed substantially from 1.96 to 3.05.

Fiers was a 6-3 winner at St. Louis in his most recent outing on Sept. 8, allowing a run on five hits in five innings with three walks and five strikeouts.

He has never faced the Mets.

For New York, lefty Jonathon Niese takes the mound with a chance to equal his career-high in wins.

The seventh-round draft pick in 2005 had his major-league breakout season with 11 wins in 27 outings while putting up a 4.40 earned run average in 157 1/3 innings.

He got to win No. 10 this season with a 2-0 defeat of Washington on Aug. 18, but has dropped three consecutive attempts at the record-tying triumph while losing to Houston, Philadelphia and Atlanta.

In those three games, Niese has allowed seven runs in 20 hits in 19 innings.
