Recap: Game 145 - Nationals (7) at Mets (2) - Harang loses, but strikes out ten

Washington (77-69)«110010121780
N.Y. Mets (64-81)100100000280

W: T. Roark (6-0) L: A. Harang (5-12)
HR: WAS - R. Zimmerman (23),A. LaRoche (20),W. Ramos (13),A. Rendon (7)   NYM - None


Ryan Zimmerman, Adam LaRoche and Wilson Ramos homered off Aaron Harang in his Mets debut, and Washington beat New York 7-2 Thursday to complete a four-game sweep.

Daniel Murphy and Anthony Recker each knocked in a run for the Mets, who have lost four straight games.

Anthony Rendon also connected for Washington, which outhomered the Mets 13-0 in a series that helped the Nationals remain on the fringe of the NL wild-card race. They moved within five games of idle Cincinnati for the final spot with the rain-interrupted win.

Zimmerman added an RBI double in the eighth after Denard Span extended his career-best hitting streak to 23 games with a leadoff double. The Nationals won 17 of those games.

The Mets have lost nine of 11 and fallen to 64-81, ensuring their fifth straight non-winning record -- all at Citi Field.

Tanner Roark (6-0) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings of his second big league start. Roark pitched six scoreless innings Sunday against Miami

With the win, Roark became the first player in the franchise to win his first six decisions since Jeff Juden in 1996-97 for Montreal.

New York signed Harang (0-1) to a minor-league deal on Sept. 1, less than a week after the team learned ace Matt Harvey had a partially torn ligament in his pitching elbow. Harang allowed the three homers and a single in six innings, struck out 10 and walked one.

The right-hander was 5-11 with a 5.76 ERA in 22 starts this year for the Seattle Mariners.

Game Notes

Zimmerman homered for the second consecutive game and has gone deep eight times in 11 games during the month of September ... Roark started the season in the bullpen before transitioning to the rotation on Sept. 7, when he tossed six scoreless innings of four-hit ball in a 9-2 triumph at Miami ...

The New York Mets (64-80) will try to avoid gettting swept at home in this four game series against the Nationals. The Washington Nationals (76-69) have won a season high-tying five straight and 11 of 15 during a 19-game stretch against the three clubs below it in the division - sub-.500 teams New York, Philadelphia and Miami.

After this game, the Nationals will play the Phillies and Marlins seven times as part of a 10-game homestand around a three-game set with eventual division champion Atlanta.

The Nationals have momentum on their side after Wednesday night's 3-0 win - their second shutout in this series. Dan Haren and four relievers combined on a three-hitter as Washington remained six games behind Cincinnati for the NL's last wild-card slot with 17 to play.

Recap: Game 145 - Mets at Brewers - Mets Fall Short in Milwaukee, Lose 9-6

Miller Park (Milwaukee, Wis.)
N.Y. Mets (66-79)1003000026101
Milwaukee (73-72) «10052010x9121
W: B. Kintzler (2-0) L: J. Mejia (0-1)
HR: NYM - I. Davis (27)   MIL - R. Weeks (20)

Rickie Weeks hit a home run, scored twice and drove in three to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-6 victory over the New York Mets in the second meeting of three-game set.

Pinch-hit triples from Logan Schafer and Travis Ishikawa plated three runs for the Brewers, who have won 19 of their last 25 games to stay within striking distance of the NL Wild Card chase.

Ike Davis hit a two-run homer in the ninth to bring the Mets within three, but it wasn't enough, as New York dropped its seventh game in its last eight tries.

Shaun Marcum didn't pitch long enough to be considered for the win as he was pinch-hit for during a five-run fourth inning for the Brewers. Brandon Kitnzler (2-0) positioned himself for the victory after pitching a scoreless fifth.

Ruben Tejada, Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda each came through with an RBI for the Mets, but starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia (0-1) lasted just three-plus innings in his first start of the season, allowing five runs on six hits while walking five.

"Command is what we really have to get straightened out," said Mets manager Terry Collins of his young pitcher. "Once the game starts you hope he settles down. I'm sure he was pretty excited. It's tough to pitch up here behind in the count."

After Duda brought home Murphy in the top of the first, Ryan Braun came through with an RBI double in the bottom half to plate Weeks, who drew a one- out walk.

The Mets put together a three-run fourth before being shut out over the next four innings. Jordany Valdespin singled on the ground to right, moved to second on a wild pitch from Marcum and stole third with Andres Torres at the plate. Torres drew a walk and Mejia sacrificed him to second while Valdespin came around to score.

Tejada reached on a base hit through the right side to bring Torres home from second before Murphy doubled to left to plate Tejada and give the Mets a 4-1 lead. Marcum struck out David Wright to end his outing, scattering four runs on seven hits.

"Shaun didn't have good command. He's a command pitcher but he didn't have it," said Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke. "I don't know what the reason is. I thought his stuff was good, his fastball was good, but his location wasn't."

The Mets' advantage didn't last long as the Brewers struck back in the bottom half of the fourth. Nyjer Morgan drew a leadoff walk and moved to second on a base hit by Jean Segura. Schafer pinch-hit for Marcum and drove both runners in with a triple to right field.

Mejia walked Norichika Aoki before he was replaced by Jeremy Hefner, who threw a wild pitch to Weeks which allowed Aoki to advance to second and Schafer to score from third. Weeks then hit a two-run homer to left-center, his 20th of the season, to cap a five-run inning for the Brewers.

After Ishikawa and Aoki each brought home a run in the bottom of the fifth, Milwaukee added one more in the seventh. Segura got on with a leadoff walk, stole second and moved to third on Kelly Shoppach's throwing error before scoring on an RBI double from Weeks.

Game Notes

The Mets were 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left nine on base ... The Brewers went 6-for-15 with runners in scoring position and also left nine stranded ... New York will send Chris Young to the mound on Sunday to face Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta in the rubber match of the series.

Preview: Game 145 - Mets at Brewers - Mejia Takes the Hill for Mets

New York Mets (66-78) at Milwaukee Brewers (72-72) 7:10 PM ET
SeasonRd/HmLast StartLast 3 App
J. Mejia (R) 0 0-0 4.503.20-00.00---ND0.0000-02.04.50
S. Marcum (R) 17 5-4 3.715.23-14.179/9@STLND5.0840-014.26.75

Right-hander Jenrry Mejia makes his first start of 2012 and fourth of his career Saturday when the New York Mets try to make it two straight over the Milwaukee Brewers in the middle contest of a three-game series at Miller Park.

The 205-pounder debuted in the minors with the Mets as a 17-year-old and gradually climbed the ladder, initially winning two games in 14 appearances in Single-A ball in 2007.

He reached Double-A in 2009 and ultimately debuted in the majors in 2010, starting three times in 33 appearances while posting an 0-4 record and a 4.62 earned run average across 39 innings.

Mejia was limited to just five starts at Triple-A Buffalo last season, and was 4-4 in 30 appearances in the minors this year before a Sept. 7 return to majors yielded a two-inning relief outing against Atlanta in a 3-0 Mets loss.

He has faced the Brewers once and allowed a hit in a scoreless relief outing.

For Milwaukee, righty Shaun Marcum makes his first appearance at home since June 8.

The 30-year-old was a 9-5 winner over the San Diego Padres on June 8 at Miller Park, where he allowed three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings to improve 5-3 on the season.

He's 0-1 in five road appearances since, including a no-decision in Milwaukee's 5-4 loss at St. Louis on Sept. 9, when Marcum allowed four runs on eight hits in five innings of work.

In two career meetings with the Mets, he's 1-0 and has given up just one run on eight hits in 13 innings.

Marcum is 3-1 in six home starts with a 4.17 ERA in 2012.

Recap: Game 145 - Cubs at Mets - Cubs battle back for win

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

Chi. Cubs (63-82) «100010012590

W: K. Wood (3-5) L: B. Parnell (3-6)
S: C. Marmol (34)
HR: CHC - None   NYM - None

Aramis Ramirez singled home two runs with two outs in the top of the ninth to give the Chicago Cubs a 5-4 victory over the New York Mets in the second of three games from Citi Field.

The teams combined for seven runs in a wild final two innings. After the Cubs scored once in the top of the eighth for a 3-0 lead, the Mets answered with four runs in the bottom of the frame to move in front before the Cubs countered with a two-run rally in the ninth to steal it right back.

New York's fourth error of the contest ignited Chicago's comeback against Bobby Parnell (3-6). David Wright booted Geovany Soto's leadoff grounder to third and Bryan LaHair doubled pinch-runner Lou Montanez to third.

Parnell nearly pitched out of it, as he flagged down Starlin Castro's bouncer for the first out and struck out Reed Johnson. Ramirez then slapped a ball through the hole between first and second to score both runners for a 5-4 lead.

Carlos Marmol worked around a one-out walk in the bottom of the ninth for his 34th save to close out Chicago's fourth win in six games. With a runner on first and two outs Jose Reyes ripped a line shot toward first that went off the glove of Carlos Pena, but second baseman DJ LeMahieu picked up the carom and threw to first to nab the speedy leadoff hitter by a half-step.

Preview : Game 145 - Cubs at Mets - Mets try to keep it going at home

Chicago Cubs (62-82) at New York Mets (71-73), 1:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Chicago - Randy Wells (7-4, 4.86) New York - Chris Capuano (10-12, 4.63)

On the disabled list in the first week of the season, Randy Wells has made a big recovery in the late going and has been real strong down the stretch for the Chicago Cubs.

Armed with a 5-0 mark over his last seven starts and without a loss since July 28, Wells has a chance to extend his career-best winning streak this afternoon against the New York Mets. The righty spent nearly two months on the DL earlier this year with a right forearm strain and went nearly two months without a win, but has been dominant lately.

In his last three starts, Wells has given up a total of two runs, covering 21 2/3 innings, all wins. That includes a two-hit shutout of the Giants on Aug. 29.

Wells has faced the Mets three times in his career, going 0-1 with a 3.06 ERA.
