Happy Recap: Game 149 - Marlins (0) at Mets (1) - d'Arnaud's walk off single wins it in 12th

Final 12th3456789101112RHE
Miami (55-94)0000000000080
N.Y. Mets (67-82)«0000000001172

W: V. Black (1-0) L: Z. Phillips (0-1)
HR: MIA - None   NYM - None


The slumping Travis d'Arnaud had an RBI single with two outs 12th inning and Black earned his first career win in New York's 1-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

With several rookies' families in town, d'Arnaud gave the game ball right to his mom. Black was given the lineup card, and it was sitting in his locker. He said it will be going home to Texas with his parents.

Dillon Gee and Tom Koehler took a pitchers' duel into the eighth inning before the Marlins and Mets each used five relievers to finish off the fifth extra-inning matchup this season between the NL East's worst teams.

D'Arnaud came through in a game of many missed opportunities and after the two previous batters grounded into forceouts at the plate. New York had loaded the bases with no outs against Zach Phillip (0-1), making his third appearance for the Marlins.

Miami wasted chances early, going 0 for 12 with runners in scoring position in the first nine innings. Eric Young Jr. was the only Mets player to reach second base -- a two-out double in the sixth -- until they put a runner on third in the 11th. But Young was struck out by Chad Qualls to end the threat.

The Marlins have lost eight of 10.

Tom Koehler allowed three hits in a career best-matching eight innings. He struck out five without walking a batter -- he had gone six straight starts giving up at least two walks.

Dillon Gee has been stingy when he has allowed runners on base. Batters were just 3 of 28 with runners in scoring position coming and the Marlins were worse: hitless in seven at-bats against the right-hander.

Gee gave up six hits in 7 1-3 innings. He walked two and struck out eight, including four in a row between the second and third.

Game Notes

Koehler is winless in eight straight starts ... The Mets were 0-for-5 with RISP before d'Arnaud's hit ... Daniel Murphy went 2-for-5 for New York.

The Marlins (55-93) have never lost to the New York Mets when the New York native Tom Koehler has been on the mound, heading into the finale of this four-game set at Citi Field.

Koehler (3-10, 4.80 ERA) is 0-4 with a 5.89 ERA in seven starts since pitching six innings Aug. 1 to earn a 3-0 home victory over the Mets. He also was winless in his first seven 2013 starts.

His other start this year against New York (66-82) was an 8-4, 10-inning road victory June 9 in which he gave up four runs in seven innings. Koehler, who was born in the Bronx and pitched in college at nearby Stony Brook, had about 100 family members and friends at Citi Field.

Juan Lagares is 3 for 6 and Daniel Murphy 3 for 8 versus Koehler, whose 7.32 road ERA since Aug. 7 is one of baseball's worst marks.

New York will start right-hander Dillon Gee (11-10, 3.61), who owns a 2.56 ERA in 19 starts since May 30 -- actually lower than injured teammate Matt Harvey's 2.60 mark in 15 outings in that span.

Gee has faced the Marlins once this year, giving up four runs in five innings to get credit for a 7-6 road win May 1.

These teams have each scored seven runs in this series, with the Mets winning two of the first three.

Pittiful Recap: Game 149 - Phillies at Mets - Mets Get Shelled 16-1

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)
Philadelphia (76-74) «80000001716210
N.Y. Mets (66-83)000010000130
W: T. Cloyd (2-1) L: J. Hefner (2-7)
HR: PHI - R. Howard (12)   NYM - M. Baxter (3)

Pittiful Recap:
The Phillies brought 13 hitters to the plate and scored eight runs during a 33-minute first inning en route to thumping the New York Mets, 16-1, and finishing off a three-game sweep at Citi Field.

Jimmy Rollins, Juan Pierre and Chase Utley combined for 11 hits, eight RBI and six runs scored to help keep the Phillies within four games of the St. Louis Cardinals for the second wild card spot.

"We didn't have things go the way we wanted them to go in Houston," Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard said. "Four down, the only thing we can do is continue to win and let everything else sort itself out."

Jeremy Hefner (2-7) did not record an out, becoming the Mets' first starter who failed to do so since John Maine in 2010. He allowed the Phillies' first seven batters to reach base on six hits and a walk, with each runner scoring.

Making the fifth start of his career, Tyler Cloyd (2-1) pitched excellent behind plenty of run support. The right-hander spun eight innings, scattering just three hits and one run while striking out six to earn the victory.

The Mets, who fell to 4-24 at home since the All-Star break, didn't get their second hit of the game until the fifth inning, when Mike Baxter hit a homer.

"Obviously we aren't hitting," Mets first baseman Ike Davis said. "Nothing's really falling."

Rollins and Pierre both reached on singles in the first before Utley plated Rollins with a soft fly ball to center. Howard then stroked a base hit to right to score Pierre. John Mayberry reached on a single to load the bases before Domonic Brown scorched a base hit up the middle to bring home Utley.

Hefner's night was finished after he walked Kevin Frandsen with the bases loaded to force in Howard. Colin McHugh came in from the bullpen and plunked Erik Kratz to score another run for the Phillies before getting Cloyd to hit into a double play.

However, McHugh wasn't out of the woods just yet. Rollins came to bat for the second time in the inning and drove in two with a ground ball up the middle. Pierre followed with a soft liner to left before Utley capped the eight-run inning with an RBI base hit.

After Utley drove in another run in the eighth, the Phillies put seven more on the board in the ninth.

Jeurys Familia loaded the bases before walking Rollins to plate Frandsen. Pierre then reached on infield hit to score Kratz from third, ending Familia's night. Josh Edgin came into the game and plunked Utley to score Nate Schierholtz before surrendering a grand slam to Howard to make it 16-1.

Game Notes

The Mets have scored three runs or less in 16 consecutive home games ... Of the Phillies' 21 hits, only two were for extra-bases ... Rollins has hit safely in 16 of 18 games in September ... The Mets used 10 different pitchers on Thursday ... The Phillies were 11-for-16 with runners in scoring position.

Right-hander Tyler Cloyd faces the New York Mets for the second time in his fifth major league start on Thursday when the Philadelphia Phillies meet them in the finale of a weather-altered three-game series at Citi Field.

The series had been scheduled to wrap up Wednesday, but game two on Tuesday was postponed by rain, moving the middle test to Wednesday and the finale to tonight.

A 25-year-old Nebraska native, Cloyd made his big-league debut against the Mets on Aug. 29 in Philadelphia and took a 3-2 loss after allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings, walking two and striking out five.

He bounced back for his initial win in his next start five days later in Cincinnati, allowing four hits and a run in seven innings of a 4-2 victory while walking none and striking out nine.

Two subsequent starts have yielded a pair of no-decisions - home with Colorado and at Houston - in which the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder gave up seven runs on 13 hits in seven innings.

Cloyd was 15-1 in 26 minor-league starts to begin 2012 while splitting time at Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

For the Mets, fellow rookie Jeremy Hefner makes his 11th start and his 24th appearance as a big leaguer.

He's faced the Phillies twice so far in his brief career, starting once and relieving once while going 1-0 with a 7.36 ERA across 7 1/3 innings.

Preview : Game 149 - Nationals at Mets - Mets face rookie Peacock

Washington Nationals (69-77) at New York Mets (71-77), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Washington - Brad Peacock (0-0, 6.75) New York - Mike Pelfrey (7-11, 4.66)

Rookie right-hander Brad Peacock makes the first start of his major-league career tonight when the Washington Nationals play the New York Mets in the third test of a four-game set at Citi Field.

A 23-year-old from Palm Beach, Fla., Peacock was a 41st-round draft choice out of high school in 2006 and pitched for six teams in six leagues in five seasons while climbing through Washington's minor-league system.

He was 34-38 overall with a 3.93 earned run average in 113 games since 2007, but ratcheted things up in 2011, going 15-3 in Double-A and Triple-A with a 2.39 ERA over 146 2/3 innings.

He relieved phenom Stephen Strasburg in his big-league debut on Sept. 6 against Los Angeles and gave up a run on four hits in 1 1/3 innings of a game Washington lost, 7-3.

The Nationals are using an extra pitcher in order to give Strasburg five days' rest between starts.

In Tuesday's second game, Ryan Zimmerman singled in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, sending Washington past the Mets, 3-2.

Rick Ankiel and Michael Morse each drove in a run for the Nationals, who have won three straight and four of five games, including Monday's opener by the same score.
