Happy Recap: Game 151 - Giants (4) at Mets (5) - Satin delivers in the 9th

San Francisco (70-82)002110000461
N.Y. Mets (68-83)«000000014592

W: V. Black (2-0) L: S. Romo (4-8)
HR: SF - G. Blanco (3)   NYM - None


The New York Mets were shut down by Matt Cain for almost eight innings, the Mets fought back against San Francisco's bullpen. Pinch-hitter Zach Lutz had an RBI double and Juan Centeno, making his major league debut, singled in a run off closer Sergio Romo (4-8).

Josh Satin hit a two-run single to cap a four-run outburst that sent New York past the San Francisco Giants 5-4 on Wednesday night, moments after Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada broke his right leg.

Tejada was injured when he tumbled over sliding left fielder Andrew Brown to catch a popup in the ninth inning. Tejada, who knocked shins with the oncoming Brown, initially stayed in the game but was lifted for Lutz in the bottom of the inning.

Satin had a career-best three RBI, including a sacrifice fly against Cain in the eighth. Vic Black (2-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win.

Matt Cain scattered six singles over 7 2/3 innings and did not allow an earned run. New York pushed only one runner to second base before the eighth.

New York gave away a run with two embarrassing errors in the fourth. Satin bobbled a leadoff grounder to third by Crawford, who scored when Brown flubbed Blanco's two-out fly to right.

Game Notes

The Mets pitching staff combined for 14 strikeouts ... Romo blew his fifth save of the season ... Mets rookie C Travis d'Arnaud sat out with a sore right shoulder. He was hit by a foul ball Tuesday night and left the game two innings later. Collins said he hopes d'Arnaud can play Thursday. ... Centeno started behind the plate and singled his second time up for his first career hit. ... Mets CF Juan Lagares snapped an 0-for-19 skid with a second-inning single. ...

Matt Cain will face the Mets Tonight, as he will try to forget the last outing he had against them. In one of the worst starts of Cain's career on July 10 , he failed to make it out of the first inning for the only time in 263 starts. He was lifted after recording only two outs, allowing three runs, two hits and three walks in a 7-2 loss.

Now Cain will try to lead the San Francisco Giants to a fifth straight win Wednesday night when they continue a three-game set at Citi Field.

Since that early exit, the right-hander has gone 3-3 with a 2.65 ERA in nine starts. Cain (8-9, 4.24 ERA) had his second consecutive strong outing Thursday after spending 15 days on the disabled list with a bruised right forearm. He limited the Dodgers to two runs - one earned - in seven innings of a 3-2 loss.

Cain was 3-1 with a 2.01 ERA in his previous five starts versus New York (67-83) before that abbreviated July outing.

Happy Recap: Game 151 - Marlins at Mets - Dickey Leads Mets to Victory, Wins #19

N.Y. Mets (68-83) «02011000x471
W: R. Dickey (19-6) L: M. Buehrle (13-13)
S: J. Rauch (4)
HR: MIA - J. Buck (12)   NYM - J. Bay (8),S. Hairston (19)

Happy Recap:
R.A. Dickey pitched into the ninth inning and Jon Rauch overcame a John Buck three-run homer to close out a New York Mets 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins at Citi Field.

Dickey (19-6) tossed eight scoreless innings before putting two runners on in the ninth. Charged with two runs on six hits, Dickey praised the defense behind him.

"They might not see the knuckleball well, but I try and get the hitter out of the batter's box in three pitches or less" said Dickey. "Fortunately they hit some balls at guys today and they made some pretty good plays.".

Rauch earned his fourth save of the season in the victory.

Jason Bay and Scott Hairston each hit homers for New York, which has won two in a row on the heels of a five-game skid.

Mark Buehrle (13-13) allowed four runs on five hits and three walks for the Marlins, who have dropped five of six overall.

"He gave up a couple of hits, two of them really hurt," said Buck regarding Buehrle's performance. "He got a couple of pitches up that Bay and Hairston obviously put good wood on."

Bay's two-run homer in the second inning put the Mets on the board. Two innings later, Hairston hit his 19th homer of the season.

After failing to score more than three runs in 16 consecutive home games, the Mets were able to do so in back-to-back games.

Josh Thole led off the home half of the fifth with a double and Dickey moved him over to third before Daniel Murphy drove him in on a fielder's choice.

Dickey came out to start the ninth but walked leadoff hitter Greg Dobbs before Donovan Solano hit a double to right field. Rauch came in to relieve Dickey and gave up a three-run homer to Buck to bring the Marlins within one run.

However, Rauch settled in and struck out Gil Velazquez, forced Bryan Peterson into a force out and fanned Gorkys Hernandez to end the game.

Game Notes

Bay's last home run came on Sept. 2, also against Buehrle ... Marlins' Jose Reyes is now 4-for-30 at Citi Field this season ... The Mets were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and left eight on base ... The Marlins were 1- for-6 with runners in scoring position and also stranded eight men on base.

Preview: Game 151 - Marlins at Mets - Dickey goes for #19

M. Buehrle (L) 29 13-12 3.786.25-74.349/15CINW7.2741-121.24.98
R. Dickey (R) 30 18-6 2.676.08-32.559/17PHIL7.0521-220.23.05

R.A. Dickey's chances of an NL Cy Young Award may have taken a hit with back-to-back losses, though it's mostly no fault of his own.

The New York Mets hope to provide Dickey with better support Saturday when he looks to continue his domination of the Miami Marlins.

Tied for second in the NL in wins and strikeouts (205) while leading it in ERA, Dickey (18-6, 2.67 ERA) has been the highlight in an otherwise disappointing season for the Mets (67-83).

However, while he's one of the leading candidates for the Cy Young, the knuckleballer has dropped his last two starts.

Dickey pitched well in both but received a total of three runs of support. Against Philadelphia on Monday, he allowed three runs - two earned - and five hits while striking out eight over seven innings of a 3-1 loss.

Dickey is 5-5 with a 2.40 ERA and two complete games over his last 11 starts. He has a 3.2 run-support average over that stretch.

"We'll go back at the end of the year and recount the number of games where he didn't get a decision, or he's allowed us an opportunity to win, and hopefully it doesn't get back to bite him too bad," manager Terry Collins said.

Dickey hasn't needed much help versus the Marlins. He is 7-0 with a 0.71 ERA in his last seven starts against them, including four wins this season. Dickey has gone the distance in the last two, pitching a five-hit shutout Aug. 31.

Happy Recap: Game 151 - Mets at Braves - Mets Blast Braves in Opener

Turner Field (Atlanta, Ga.)

N.Y. Mets (72-79) «40240100112201
Atlanta (86-65)110000000260

W: C. Capuano (11-12) L: D. Lowe (9-15)
HR: NYM - D. Wright (13),D. Wright (14)   ATL - M. Prado (12)

Though the Braves may have hosted Star Wars night at Turner Field on Friday, the force was clearly stronger in the New York Mets.

Behind a pair of David Wright home runs, the Mets pounded Atlanta, 12-2, in the opener of a three-game series.

Wright clubbed a two-run blast in the first inning and added a three-run shot in the fourth for New York, which avoided losing seven straight for the first time since April 10-16.

Josh Thole had three RBI and Ruben Tejada hit a two-run single, while Mets starter Chris Capuano (11-12) gave up two runs on six hits in five-plus innings.

Derek Lowe (9-15) struggled from the get-go for Atlanta, allowing four runs in the first, and departed in the third having surrendered six runs on nine hits. The veteran right-hander tossed just 2 1/3 innings, his shortest outing of the season.

"This was terrible," Lowe said.

The Braves, who have dropped five of seven, lead St. Louis by 3 1/2 games for the NL wild card.

Preview : Game 151 - Mets at Braves - Cappy vs Lowe

New York Mets (71-79) at Atlanta Braves (86-64), 7:35 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Chris Capuano (10-12, 4.49) Atlanta - Derek Lowe (9-14, 4.70)

The Braves hope that the bumpiest part of their road to the playoffs is over. Getting Derek Lowe a victory tonight would certainly smooth things out.

Lowe tries to avoid matching his career high for most losses in a season as Atlanta begins a three-game series with the struggling New York Mets.

The Braves dropped the opener of their recently-completed series with the Marlins on Monday, giving them four straight defeats for the first time this season. However, Atlanta got on track by taking the final two games of the set, including Wednesday's 4-1 win.

With the victory, Atlanta leads St. Louis for the wild card position by 4 1/2 games and has a magic number of nine to clinch the final spot. A loss tonight coupled with a victory by Philadelphia would also clinch the NL East title for the Phillies.

Alex Gonzalez had the big blow in the most recent victory, hitting a three-run homer as part of a four-run seventh inning. Martin Prado had a pair of hits and knocked in the other run and doesn't think his team is struggling down the stretch.

"Struggling ... I hate when the people say that. We had our first four-game losing streak this season, so I don't see that as struggling," said Prado. "We just had a couple bad days. I've got so much confidence in my team, and I know we're coming back. I have faith in everybody here."
