Happy Recap: Game 15 - Mets (5) at D'Backs (2) - Mets Sweep D'Backs, Gee Picks up Win


New York


W: D. Gee (1-0) L: B. McCarthy (0-3)
HR: NYM - A. Recker (2)   ARI - A. Hill (1),P. Goldschmidt (3)


Dillon Gee tossed seven scoreless innings to earn his first win of the season and Anthony Recker homered, as the New York Mets downed Arizona, 5-2, to sweep the three-game set.

Daniel Murphy, David Wright and Kirk Nieuwenhuis each drove in a run for the Mets, winners in five of their last seven and owners of their first road sweep of Arizona since a four-game triumph from June 8-11, 2006.

Gee (1-0) was yanked after only 72 pitches, having allowed only three hits while striking out three. He also added an RBI groundout and began the afternoon by retiring the first 14 batters he faced.

Paul Goldschmidt doubled and homered, while Aaron Hill added a solo shot for the Diamondbacks, who finished their homestand 0-6.

Brandon McCarthy (0-3) was tagged for seven hits and three runs over his 5 2/3-inning outing.

In the home seventh, Goldschmidt doubled with one away, but Andrew Brown made a leaping grab against the right-field wall to rob Miguel Montero of extra bases. Gee completed his outing on a Curtis Granderson grounder to second.

Kyle Farnsworth gave up a leadoff hit to Martin Prado and a one-out single from Tony Campana one frame later, but fanned pinch-hitter Eric Chavez looking and Scott Rice entered to retire Parra on a grounder to second.

The Mets tacked on two more runs in the ninth on RBI singles from Murphy and Wright, and needed them when Hill and Goldschmidt hit back-to-back homers off Jose Valverde to start the home portion. Valverde retired the next two batters, then Prado singled before Cliff Pennington's fly out ended the contest.

Recker's two-out solo blast in the second put the Mets on the board.

New York picked up another run in the fourth, as Ike Davis singled, moved to third on a Brown double and came home on a Nieuwenhuis fly to center.

The visitors went up 3-0 in the sixth. Brown singled, moved to third on a Recker double, and after Ruben Tejada was walked to load the bases, Gee's pinball groundout plated Brown.

Gee helped prevent a run in the home sixth, as Parra singled with two down, but the New York hurler tagged him out at second as the final player in a three-man relay.

Mets Notes:
New York finished its road trip with a 6-3 record ... The Mets have scored first 10 times this season, but are only 4-6 when they plate the first run of the game ... Gee has tossed six-or-more innings in 24 of his last 26 starts dating back to May 30 of last year and has lasted at least seven frames or more in 14 of those starts ...

Pitching Probables - Dillon Gee (0-0) 5.03 vs Brandon McCarthy (0-2) 7.78
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - 3:40 PM


The New York Mets (7-7) look to sweep the series over the horrendous Arizona Diamondbacks (4-13). Dillon Gee will look to rebound from his last start against the Angels on April 11th. Gee only went five innings, giving 6 hits and 4 earned runs. He got the no decision. The D'backs that have faced him are only hitting .215 off Gee. Gee is 1-1 with a 3.75 ERA vs the D'Backs in his career.

The D'backs will counter with Brandon McCarthy on the hill vs the Mets. McCarthy is 0-1 with a 2.57 ERA vs the Mets. The Mets that have faired against him are collectively batting .235 (35 AB's) with 1 HR. McCarthy has been prone to the Homer Run ball as he has given up 5 HR's in three games. Curtis Granderson is the only Mets with 14 AB's vs McCarthy and is batting .143 vs him. The D'Backs are 1-10 at Home and have lost 5 in a row.. In his last start, McCarthy  pitched 7 innings, giving up 10 hits, 6 earned runs vs the Dodgers (April 11th). He got the Loss (6-0)...

See if the Mets can sweep the D'Backs and go above .500, instead of under it... LGM!

Happy Recap: Game 15 - Nationals at Mets - Harvey outduels Strasburg, Davis and Duda Homer Each Twice

Washington (9-7)000000100141
N.Y. Mets (8-7)«20000203x781

W: M. Harvey (4-0) L: S. Strasburg (1-3)
HR: WAS - None   NYM - I. Davis (2),L. Duda (4),I. Davis (3),L. Duda (5)

Matt Harvey outdueled Stephen Strasburg to become the first four-game winner in the majors this season, while Ike Davis and Lucas Duda each belted a pair of home runs to help the New York Mets to a 7-1 victory over the Washington Nationals at Citi Field.

Harvey (4-0) held the Nationals to one run on four hits while striking out seven over seven outstanding innings, with the effort enabling the Mets to stop a string of eight straight losses to their National League East rival in their home park.

"I was pretty pumped up. I wanted to do everything I could to win this game," Harvey said.

The young righty received plenty of support from the combo of Davis and Duda, who combined for five RBI in the opener of this three-game series.

Strasburg (1-3) served up two of the long balls and was reached for four runs, two of which were unearned, while fanning six over six innings of work.

"I'm not having good enough feel early on," Strasburg said. "I'm just not throwing enough strikes early, and it's shooting myself in the foot."

Chad Tracy knocked in Washington's lone run with a seventh-inning single, one of only four hits for the defending NL East champs as they fell for the fifth time in their last seven outings.

Harvey, who has posted a sensational 0.93 ERA over his four-start win streak, was dominant all throughout the evening. The 23-year-old phenom yielded only two hits and a pair of walks while keeping the Nationals off the scoreboard over the game's first six frames.

Strasburg, on the other hand, got off to a rough beginning that was in part due to some shaky defense from his teammates.

Shortstop Ian Desmond booted a grounder off the bat of Mets leadoff hitter Jordany Valdespin in the
bottom of the first, and Daniel Murphy followed with a single to put runners at the corners before the Washington ace uncorked a wild pitch to let in the game's first run.

Strasburg retired the next two hitters, but John Buck lashed a single to left that plated Murphy for a 2-0 lead.

The hard-throwing righty then matched zeros with Harvey until Davis opened the bottom of the sixth by crushing the first pitch he saw over the wall in center. One batter later, Duda delivered a mammoth blast that landed in the seats in left center to stake New York to a 4-0 advantage.

Washington finally got to Harvey in the seventh, when consecutive singles by Desmond and Tracy that followed a leadoff walk to Adam LaRoche put the Nats on the board. An error by Murphy then loaded the bases with none out, but Harvey got out of the jam by fanning Kurt Suzuki and getting Roger Bernadina to pop up before retiring Denard Span.

The Mets created some more distance against Drew Storen in the eighth. David Wright tripled to center and came home on Davis' second homer of the night, with Duda matching the feat with his fifth of the season later in the inning.

Harvey Mania
People around the New York Mets were excited to see what Matt Harvey was going to do in his first full year with the club.

So far he's exceeding expectations.

The right-hander shoots for his fourth win of the season and tries to follow up his near no-hitter on Friday when the Mets open a three-game series against Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals at Citi Field.

Harvey has been the best pitcher in baseball in the early going and was at his best on Saturday in Minnesota, as he held the Twins hitless until Justin Morneau homered with two outs in the seventh and only allowed two hits overall. He also struck out seven and improved to 3-0 to go along with a 0.82 ERA.

"(Harvey) knows he can compete here," Collins said. "He trusts his stuff. He knows if he makes pitches, he's going to get outs up here. I think that month and a half he spent here last year was a tremendous experience leading into this year. I think he pitches with great confidence up here, and he knows that he's got good enough stuff to get the best hitters in the game out."

Happy Recap: Spring Training Game 15 - Mets at Cards - Marcum Impresses in Mets win

N.Y. Mets (5-6)«000000012360
St. Louis (8-6)000000000030

W: J. Familia (1-0) L: E. Mujica (1-1) S: C. Torres (1)
HR: NYM - None   STL - None

Shaun Marcum is making a nice impression with the New York Mets.

Making his third of the spring, Marcum allowed only one hit and didn't walk anyone in 3 2-3 innings Sunday as the Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0.

Marcum and six relievers combined to give up just three hits.

"We pitched very well today," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "It starts with Shaun. Shaun made pitch after pitch and later in the game the relievers did, too."

Shane Robinson appeared to be fooled by an offering from Marcum in the second inning but still managed to stroke the lone hit off him, keeping the ball inside the left-field line.

"As far as mechanics and everything, which has been my main focus the last couple bullpens and today's start, everything felt a lot better," Marcum said.

The Mets scored in the eighth when Travis d'Arnaud drew a walk from Edward Mujica, moved up on a wild pitch and later came home on Jordany Valdespin's single.

Jamie Hoffman hit a two-run double in the ninth.

Recap: Game 15 (Game 1 DH) - Giants at Mets - Lincecum wins his first, Mets Lose 6-1

Final Score: San Francisco 6, New York 1

Tim Lincecum allowed one run over five innings, Nate Schierholtz and Buster Posey both homered and the Giants defeated the Mets, 6-1, in the opener of Monday's doubleheader.

Lincecum (1-2) gave up four hits, walked five and struck out eight. Schierholtz went 3-for-5 with a triple and a three-run homer and Posey hit a solo shot in the first.

San Francisco has won seven of its last 10 games overall and two of three to begin this series, which concludes tonight.

Miguel Batista (0-1), making his first start of the season, lasted just 3 2/3 innings and was charged with six runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and three walks. Mike Baxter had an RBI double for the Mets, losers of five of their last seven games.

San Francisco got to Batista early, pushing a pair of runs across in the first. Melky Cabrera reached with a one-out walk, stole second and scored on Pablo Sandoval's line drive to right. Sandoval was thrown out at second by Lucas Duda, but Posey followed with a homer to left-center.

New York made it 2-1 in the second when Ruben Tejada drew a two-out walk and Baxter followed with a double to right, but Schierholtz stretched the margin in the third.

Batista retired the first two batters of the inning before Sandoval reached on an error by Ike Davis at first. A walk to Posey preceded Schierholtz's line drive homer to right, which made it 5-1.

Brandon Crawford tacked on an RBI double in the fourth and the Mets failed to score again against Lincecum, who had allowed a total of 16 runs in his previous three starts this season. In the fifth, New York loaded the bases with one out, but Davis grounded into an inning-ending double play.

Guillermo Mota relieved Lincecum in the sixth and faced the minimum before New York loaded the bases again in the seventh. Pinch-hitter Justin Turner led off with a single and Kirk Nieuwenhuis followed with a double to place runners at second and third. Mota retired the next two batters -- Daniel Murphy and David Wright -- before Jeremy Affeldt walked Lucas Duda. But Davis again grounded out to end the inning.

Game Notes

Sandoval has hit safely in all 15 games this season, which marks the club's second-longest hit streak to begin a season in San Francisco-era (since 1958) history. Willie Mays owns the record with 16 games (1960)...Lincecum improved to 4-0 in his last four starts against the Mets dating back to 2010...Josh Thole went 1-for-4 and has reached base safely in all 14 games he's played, which marks the longest streak to begin a season for a Mets catcher.

The Mets will face the Giants Ace Tim Lincecum this afternoon and the Mets just like the rest of the NL have not hit him. The Mets hitters that have faced him are collectively batting .205 (15 for 73).

Only David Murphy (.375) and Ike Davis (.333) have had some success against Lincecum... While hot hitting David Wright has done poorly against him hitting only .205  ....All in all, it should make for a interesting afternoon...

The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants close their four-game series this afternoon with a traditional doubleheader at Citi Field.

Rainy conditions in New York made today's double-dip necessary.

Fans in attendance today could see some history, as Mets third baseman David Wright is tied with Darryl Strawberry for the most RBI in team history.

Wright went hitless in four at-bats in Saturday's 5-4 New York win. He had a 10-game hitting streak stopped and remains at 733 career RBI, tied with Strawberry.

Today's Game Against the Giants will be Postponed

Today's Game (15) against the Giants will be postponed due to rain.

Preview - Game 15 - Giants at Mets - Mets Look to Beat Lincecum

San Francisco Giants (7-7) at New York Mets (8-6), 1:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: San Francisco - Tim Lincecum (0-2, 10.54) New York - Dillon Gee (1-1, 2.92)

With David Wright on the verge of setting a Mets franchise record, the only thing that may stop the veteran third baseman from passing Darryl Strawberry's all-time club RBI record may be the weather.

Rainy conditions are expected Sunday at Citi Field when the Mets continue their four-game series against the San Francisco Giants. Wright went hitless in four at-bats in Saturday's 5-4 New York win. He had a 10-game hitting streak stopped and remains at 733 career RBI, tied with Strawberry.

If the weather does hold up, two-time NL Cy Young winner and four-time All- Star Tim Lincecum will try to get his first win of the season. The right- hander lasted six innings against the Phillies and gave up eight hits and five runs in a loss on Monday. He's 3-1 with a 2.87 ERA in seven starts vs. the Mets.

Dillon Gee, who threw seven solid innings in a win at Atlanta on Monday, counters for the Mets. The righty will make his first start against San Francisco.

Yesterday, in a ninth inning filled with mistakes, the Giants made the last one. The Mets blew a three-run lead in the top of the ninth when center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis failed to catch a fly ball with two outs that allowed two runs to score.

Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 15 - Mets at Braves (Game 2 DH)

DENVER - JULY 11:  Starting pitcher Jair Jurrj...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Final Score: Atlanta 4, New York 0

Jair Jurrjens allowed two hits over seven shutout innings in his 2011 debut, and the Atlanta Braves blanked the Mets, 4-0, to complete a doubleheader sweep and send New York to its seventh straight defeat.

In the opener, Alex Gonzalez hit two of Atlanta's four solo home runs to help the Braves take a 4-2 win.

Jurrjens (1-0), who had been out with a right oblique strain, walked one batter and struck out four. He moved to 8-2 lifetime against the Mets. George Sherrill and Scott Linebrink combined for five strikeouts over the final two innings to complete the two-hit gem.

Eric Hinske had three hits and an RBI.

Mike Pelfrey (0-2) surrendered 11 hits and four runs over five-plus innings for the Mets, who are mired in their longest slide since dropping 11 in a row during the 2004 season.

Friday night's rainout caused the Mets to play back-to-back doubleheaders for the first time since August 20-21, 1998, against St. Louis. They were swept in a twinbill by Colorado on Thursday.

The Mets aim to snap a five-game slide and the Braves try to avoid a fifth loss in six games when the teams play a doubleheader this afternoon at Turner Field. The two clubs were to start the three-game series on Friday, but rain made this a twinbill.
