Happy Recap: Game 146 - Marlins (3) at Mets (4) - Duda, Brown Power Mets to Victory, Niese has Nice Outing

Miami (54-92)010010100371
N.Y. Mets (65-81)«01000300x450

W: J. Niese (7-7) L: B. Hand (0-1) S: L. Hawkins (9)
HR: MIA - G. Stanton (21),G. Stanton (22)   NYM - A. Brown (7),L. Duda (13)


Lucas Duda hit a three-run homer and New York overcame two solo shots by Giancarlo Stanton, beating the Miami Marlins 4-3 on Friday night behind Jonathon Niese.

It was Duda's 13th home run in the majors this season -- the previous 11 were solo shots. He was recalled from the minors Aug. 24 and has been filling in at first base for injured Ike Davis, hoping to show the Mets he still belongs in their plans.

Andrew Brown also went deep for the Mets, outhomered 13-0 by Washington at Citi Field in a four-game sweep that ended Thursday.

Niese (7-7) struck out seven and walked none over 6 1/3 innings, improving to 4-1 in seven starts since returning from a shoulder injury last month. New York won for the third time in 12 September games and upped its mark to 6-10 this season against the Marlins, who have the NL's worst record at 54-92.

LaTroy Hawkins got three straight outs for his ninth save, ending a quick game that took 2 hours, 30 minutes. He struck out Stanton with a 92 mph fastball and retired Justin Ruggiano on a long fly to the warning track in right-center.

Game Notes

Turner (right hamstring) probably will be sidelined until at least the middle of next week. ... New York rookie Travis d'Arnaud got dinged when Lucas' backswing hit the catcher on top of his helmet in the second inning. Collins and trainer Ray Ramirez came out to check on d'Arnaud, who remained in the game. ... Mets RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka turned 33. Matsuzaka (0-3, 8.00 ERA) is slated to start against RHP Henderson Alvarez (3-4, 4.34) in the opener of Saturday's traditional doubleheader, scheduled to make up a June 7 rainout. Carlos Torres faces Miami RHP Jacob Turner in the nightcap.

The Battle of the bottom dwellers face off Friday Night as the Mets host the Miami Marlins. The Marlins (54-91) have lost five of six and need to finish 9-8 in order to avoid the second 100-loss season in the franchise's 20-year history.

Miami has been successful against New York, though, and it will look to send the Mets to their fifth straight loss Friday night.

Despite all the Marlins' struggles, they've had plenty of success against the Mets. They've won 10 of the 15 meetings while holding a 20-run scoring advantage over New York, which is coming off a four-game sweep following Thursday's 7-2 loss to Washington.

The Mets (64-81) were shut out twice while being outscored 25-5 in the series.

Recap: Game 146 - Mets at Brewers - Braun, Peralta Enough for Mets, Lose 3-0

Miller Park (Milwaukee, Wis.)
N.Y. Mets (66-80)000000000020
Milwaukee (74-72) «00020100x380
W: W. Peralta (2-0) L: C. Young (4-8)
S: J. Axford (29)
HR: NYM - None   MIL - R. Braun (39),A. Ramirez (24),R. Braun (40)

Ryan Braun hit two homers, Wily Peralta pitched eight shutout innings, and John Axford closed it out in the ninth as the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the New York Mets 3-0 to take the rubber match of a three-game set.

Braun's second homer was his 40th of the season, marking the first time in his career that he has reached the plateau.

The Brewers won for the 20th time in their last 26 games and trail the Cardinals by 2 1/2 games for the final NL wild card spot.

The Mets managed only two hits, both off of Peralta (2-0), who made just the third start of his career. He fanned five and walked only one.

"He had a good 96 mph fastball and a good sinker," said manager Ron Roenicke, who was very impressed with his young pitcher. "He kept the ball down in the zone and had a good slider with great command."

Chris Young (4-8) pitched well, but gave up three homers to account for all of the Brewers' runs. He lasted 6 2/3 innings, giving up eight hits while striking out two.

Braun and Aramis Ramirez went back-to-back to start the bottom half of the fourth to give the Brewers a 2-0 lead. Braun added another run when he hit his second homer to lead off the bottom of the sixth.

"They can do damage in this ballpark," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "Two hits won't get you far."

Josh Thole and Andres Torres were the only batters to record hits for the Mets.

Axford record his 29th save of the season after working around a one-out walk to Daniel Murphy.

Game Notes

The Mets have lost the season series with the Brewers for three straight years ... The Brewers set a franchise record for season strikeouts with 1,259 when Peralta struck out Lucas Duda in the second inning ... Peralta's double in the seventh inning was the first of his career ... Braun now has 201 home runs for his career.

Dominican rookie Wily Peralta makes the third start of his brief big-league career - and first against New York - when the Milwaukee Brewers host the Mets in the finale of a three-game series at Miller Park.

Peralta, who debuted with the Milwaukee organization as a 17-year-old in 2006, made his big-league debut on April 22 when he tossed an inning of one-run relief, allowing three hits, in the Brewers' 4-1 loss to Colorado.

He made 28 starts at Triple-A Nashville and posted a 4.66 earned run average in 146 2/3 innings, then returned to the majors and earned his initial victory with six innings of three-run ball in his first start at Miami on Sept. 5.

Peralta allowed a run on seven hits in the follow-up effort five days later against Atlanta and got a no-decision in Milwaukee's 4-1 victory.

In 13 combined innings, Peralta has walked five batters, struck out eight and allowed a composite .319 batting average.

He'll be opposed by 33-year-old Texas native Chris Young, who faces the Brewers for the third time in his 157th big-league start.

It's his first meeting with them since Sept. 7, 2008, when he tossed a complete-game two-hitter, allowing a single run and striking out five in a 10-1 triumph.

Recap: Game 146 - Cubs at Mets - Mets Fall apart

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

Chi. Cubs (64-82) «1020100000610142
N.Y. Mets (71-75)100002010026141

W: R. Ortiz (1-2) L: J. Stinson (0-1)
HR: CHC - None   NYM - J. Pridie (4)

Carlos Pena knocked in the go-ahead run and the Chicago Cubs scored five more times in the 11th inning to upend the New York Mets, 10-6.

Pena and Darwin Barney each had three hits and two RBI, Tyler Colvin drove in three and Bryan LaHair scored four runs for the Cubs, who have won five of their last seven.

The Mets stranded 15 runners, including three apiece in the ninth and 10th innings to fall for the fourth time in five games.

Chicago also had trouble with runners on, leaving 12, but came through against Josh Stinson in the 11th.

Marlon Byrd worked a leadoff walk and moved to third on LaHair's base hit. Pena then singled through a shifted infield to bring in Byrd, and Stinson (0-1) was mercifully pulled after walking Colvin.

Alfonso Soriano greeted Ryota Igarashi with a pinch-hit, two-run double, and Barney found the gap in left to bring in two more.

Geovany Soto added a sacrifice fly to cap the six-run rally, and Jason Pridie's two-run homer off John Grabow in the bottom half did not change the outcome.

Ramon Ortiz (1-2) recorded the final two outs in the 10th to earn the win.

The rubber match of the three-game series was preempted by a remembrance ceremony for those lost in the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. Members of the New York City Police Department, New York City Fire Department, and many other first responders participated in the event, during which a 300-foot by 100-foot American flag was unfurled.

Preview : Game 146 - Cubs at Mets - 9/11 Ceremonies

Chicago Cubs (63-82) at New York Mets (71-74), 8:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Chicago - Matt Garza (8-10, 3.52) New York - Miguel Batista (4-2, 3.92)

September 11, 2001, was a day of unprecedented suffering in the history of the United States. Today we remember the terrorist attacks that shook our nation, and tonight the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs pay tribute to the uniformed service men and women during a special pregame ceremony at Citi Field.

For former Mets Mike Piazza and John Franco, tonight's game should jar memories that are sure to draw emotions from fans at the ballpark and those watching via live national television audience. Franco will throw out the ceremonial first pitch to Piazza during the remembrance ceremony at 7:30 p.m.

The Mets' first home game after the horrific attacks came September 21, 2001, during which Piazza belted the go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning to boost New York over Atlanta, 3-2. Franco also pitched in that contest.

Members of the New York City Police Department, New York City Fire Department, and many other first responders will participate in the ceremony, during which a 300-foot by 100-foot American flag will be unfurled.

"I don't consider it a celebration," Mets manager Terry Collins told the team's website. "A remembrance is one thing. But to honor those people that risked their lives on that day, they should be honored somehow. They should be. And so to be a part of that game -- and obviously the Mets were the first team to play back in New York after that -- to have that honor again I think is going to be special for the players."
