Recap: Game 150 - Giants (8) at Mets (5) - Pagan puts on a show a Citi

San Francisco (70-81)«030010121892
N.Y. Mets (67-83)001300001591

W: Y. Petit (4-0) L: S. Henn (0-1)
HR: SF - A. Pagan (4)   NYM - None


Angel Pagan puts on a show at Citi Field.  Pagan hit a home run, tripled and drove in three runs on a perfect night at the plate against his former team, leading Yusmeiro Petit and the Giants past the New York Mets 8-5 on Tuesday.

The switch-hitter went 3 for 3 with two walks and scored twice for the defending World Series champions, who have won four straight and seven of nine to improve to 70-81. His tie breaking home run in the seventh inning made a winner of Petit (4-0) in his second start since nearly pitching a perfect game.

Angel Pagan spent four seasons with the Mets before they traded him to San Francisco in December 2011. He helped the Giants win a championship last year and then re-signed with them for $40 million over four years.

Tony Abreu added an RBI double against Gonzalez Germen in the eighth, and Pagan's triple off the wall in right-center made it 7-4. Hunter Pence singled home a run in the ninth for his 20th RBI in his past seven games.

The Mets had their chances when Giants reliever Sandy Rosario issued a leadoff walk in the ninth and left with a strained right hip. Sergio Romo gave up an RBI single to Daniel Murphy before retiring Lucas Duda and pinch-hitter Andrew Brown with the bases loaded to end it.

Mets starter Zack Wheeler threw 107 pitches over five innings against his former club. The rookie walked a career-high six -- four in the second inning. In all, seven New York pitchers combined to issue a season-high 10 walks.

The New York Mets (67-82) will be hosts to the San Francisco Giants (69-81) in the opener of the three game series at Citi Field. The Giants like the Mets have nothing to play for, but seek a fourth consecutive victory Tuesday night while trying to end their recent struggles against the New York Mets.

San Francisco has dropped five in a row to the Mets - all at home - but won two straight and six of eight at New York.

Giant outfielder Hunter Pence has homered in a career-high four straight contests after hitting two in San Francisco's 4-3 win at Dodger Stadium on Sunday. The Giants took the final three of the four-game set against NL West-leading Los Angeles, and have won six of eight overall.

Pence, who has tied a career high with 25 home runs, has hit six while going 13 for 25 in the last six games. His 19 RBIs during that stretch are the most for a Giants player since it became an official statistic in 1920.

Happy Recap: Game 150 - Marlins at Mets - Ike, Niese Help Mets in win 7-3

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)
Miami (66-85)001002000371
N.Y. Mets (67-83) «32001010x7110
W: J. Niese (12-9) L: J. Turner (2-4)
HR: MIA - None   NYM - S. Hairston (18),I. Davis (28)

Scott Hairston had a two-run homer, a triple, and three RBI, and left-hander Jon Niese surpassed his career-best win total Friday, helping the New York Mets down the Miami Marlins, 7-3, in the first of a three-game set at Citi Field.

Niese (12-9) pitched 6 1/3 effective innings, giving up just three runs on seven hits. He struck out seven and walked two. Though Niese won 11 games in 2011, Friday's victory puts him at 12 wins for the first time in his five- year career.

Ike Davis knocked in two runs for New York, one coming on a solo shot in the seventh, and scored twice. Daniel Murphy additionally scored two times and added an RBI for the Mets, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

"I've said all year that they're a tremendous bunch of guys. It's a great clubhouse, and they just came out today and played like I know they can," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Miami's starter, right-hander Jacob Turner (1-3), in just his fifth start as a Marlin since coming from Detroit via trade in August, threw 115 pitches in just five innings, giving up eight hits and six runs -- three earned. He struck out three hitters and walked one.

Donovan Solano had two RBI for Miami, which has now lost two in a row and is just 3-7 in its last 10.

The Mets got to Turner early, scoring three runs in the bottom of the first.

Murphy, who singled and stole second, first crossed home when a ball hit by Davis was mishandled by Solano manning second. Hairston followed by hitting a two-run homer to left-center to put the Mets up 3-0.

In the second frame, New York plated two more, taking advantage of sloppy defensive play by the Marlins.

First, Niese got on the base paths with a fielder's choice to shortstop that Reyes committed a throwing error on -- eventually coming around to score on a wild pitch from Turner.

Murphy tacked on another run with a sac fly to center that scored Fred Lewis.

"The way we play the first three innings, it was embarrassing," Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said. "I think if I was pitching in that game, I might fight with somebody."

The Marlins got one back in the third with an RBI single by Solano that scored Gil Velazquez, but the Mets countered in the fifth when Hairston tripled home Murphy.

Miami closed to within 6-3 in the sixth. Solano hit an RBI double and Austin Kearns contributed a run-scoring single.

Davis went deep in the seventh.

Game Notes

The Mets have been outscored 151-68 at Citi Field by opponents in the second half of the season ... Miami is now 4-9 against the Mets in 2012, including a 2-5 mark at Citi Field.

J. Niese (L) 28 11-9 3.465.25-53.709/14@MILW6.0621-218.03.00

Jacob Turner will try to build off his first victory with the Miami Marlins as he toes the rubber on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series against the New York Mets.

Acquired from the Detroit Tigers on July 23 as part of a package for infielder Omar Infante and starter Anibal Sanchez, Turner has gone 1-2 with a 3.75 earned run average in four starts and turned in perhaps his best major league appearance last time out.

The 21-year-old hurled a career-high seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday, scattering two hits and a pair of walks while striking out three.

"I was just being aggressive early, trying to get ahead as much as I could," Turner said of his outing. "When I didn't get ahead, I was able to make quality pitches when I was behind in the count and not really give in."

The right-hander went 1-1 with an 8.03 ERA in three starts with the Tigers this season before the trade and will face the Mets for the first time.

Jon Niese eyes a new career high for wins in a season as he gets the call for the Mets.

Niese moved to 11-9 with a 3.46 ERA in 28 starts this season after beating the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday. He yielded two runs on six hits over six innings, walking three and striking out five to snap a three-start slide. He also set a new career best with 177 innings pitched this season.

The 25-year-old southpaw has not allowed more than three runs in six straight outings since a loss to the Marlins on Aug. 7. He was tagged for four runs over six frames of that loss, falling to 1-5 with a 4.64 ERA in nine career meetings.

Mets News and Notes: Bullpen Implosion, Ugly Stats

Mets News and Notes: 


The Mets bullpen took away any chance the team might have had for a comeback Thursday by giving up eight runs in four innings. D.J. Carrasco gave up one run in 1 1/3 innings, Pedro Beato surrendered three runs in 2/3 innings and Manny Acosta yielded four runs in one inning. The Nationals bullpen, meanwhile, did not give up a run in 3 1/3 innings in support of Tom Milone, who won the first game of his career.


The last time the Mets had a worse winning percentage on a homestand of at least six games was Aug. 23-Sept. 2, 2004, when they were 1-10…The Mets are 31-44 at Citi Field…It's the first time the Nationals have swept the Mets since they were in Montreal…The Mets lost the season series to the Nationals, 10-8…Mets were 0-for-11 with runners in scoring positions and 18-of-95 in their last 10 games.

Ian Desmond registered the first five-hit game of his career and drove in three runs, as the Washington Nationals beat the New York Mets, 10-1, to extend their winning streak to five games.

Washington's Tom Milone (1-0) earned his first career win, limiting New York to a run on three hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings.

The Nationals swept a four-game series in Flushing, New York, for the first time since the Montreal Expos won all four meetings at Shea Stadium from September 18-21, 2003.

Chris Schwinden (0-2), making just his second career start, gave up two runs -- one earned -- and four hits in five frames for the Mets, who have lost six straight games and finished their homestand with a 1-8 mark.

The New York bullpen surrendered eight runs on 10 hits.

The game remained scoreless until the fifth inning, when Washington capitalized on an error to take the lead. With men on the corners, Rick Ankiel hit a slow roller up the first-base line, but Mets first baseman Valentino Pascucci dropped the ball as he went to apply the tag. Wilson Ramos scored on the play and Desmond took third before scoring on Ryan Zimmerman's sacrifice fly.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Washington - Tommy Milone (0-0, 6.30) New York - Chris Schwinden (0-1, 9.00)

The New York Mets hope to put the brakes on their five-game losing streak when they wrap up a four-game series versus the Washington Nationals this afternoon from Citi Field.

The Mets look to salvage the finale of this series after dropping the first three installments, including Wednesday's 2-0 setback. Mike Pelfrey pitched well in defeat and yielded just two unearned runs over seven innings with six strikeouts and two walks. The Mets are 4-7 in Pelfrey's last 11 starts.

Justin Turner's pinch-hit double in the seventh inning was the only extra-base hit for the Mets, who have lost seven of eight games and managed just four hits. Jose Reyes has recorded at least one hit in 16 of the 17 games he's played in since returning from the disabled list on August 29. Reyes is not expected to play on Thursday.

"We're getting some balls we can hit but we're just not hitting them. It's just one of those things that clubs go through," Mets manager Terry Collins said.
