Recap: Game 152 - Giants (2) at Mets (1) - Bumgarner outdoes Niese in finale

San Francisco (71-82)«000200000280
N.Y. Mets (68-84)000100000140

W: M. Bumgarner (13-9) L: J. Niese (7-8) S: J. Lopez (1)
HR: SF - None   NYM - None


Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 in seven innings of four-hit ball, outpitching Jonathon Niese to lead San Francisco over the New York Mets 2-1 Thursday.

Juan Perez went 3 for 3 with an RBI single in his hometown, and the World Series champions won for the eighth time in 11 games. After taking two of three from the Mets, the Giants won't even change hotels -- they remain in New York this weekend to play three interleague games at Yankee Stadium.

Bumgarner (13-9) has gone 19 straight starts without yielding more than three earned runs, the longest streak by a San Francisco pitcher since Tim Lincecum's 19 in a row from 2007-08. The previous Giants hurler to do it during one season was Ed Whitson in 1980, according to STATS.

Following his 13th career game with double-digit strikeouts, Bumgarner needs one more K to reach 200 in a season for the first time. The All-Star left-hander surpassed 200 innings for the third consecutive year.

Niese (7-8) threw seven solid innings for the Mets, who rallied for four runs in the ninth to win 5-4 on Wednesday night. They batted .184 while going 4-7 on their penultimate homestand.

With a runner on second, Javier Lopez retired pinch-hitters Lucas Duda and Anthony Recker for his first save since Sept. 11 last year. Recker struck out to end a crisp game that took 2 hours, 37 minutes.

Giants closer Sergio Romo, who had a blown save Wednesday, was rested after throwing 50 pitches over the previous two days.

Daniel Murphy drove in the lone run for the Mets, who ended an 11-game homestand with just three wins.

Game Notes

Tony Abreu had two hits for the Giants ... New York won the season series from the Giants, 4-2.

The New York Mets are trying to conclude this 11-game homestand with five wins in seven games after being swept by Washington in a four-game set.

Jonathan Niese (7-7, 3.88 ERA) could help since he's 4-1 with a 3.13 ERA in seven starts since returning from a partially torn left rotator cuff. The left-hander has been particularly impressive in three home games, going 2-0 with a 1.61 ERA.

Niese is 1-1 with a 3.10 ERA in three career starts versus the Giants. He last faced them Aug. 1, 2012, when he allowed one run in seven innings of a 2-1 road win.

San Francisco will counter Niese with Madison Bumgarner (12-9, 2.83), one of the club's most consistent starters.

The left-hander has allowed three earned runs or fewer in 18 straight starts, San Francisco's longest such streak since Tim Lincecum went 19 games from Aug. 16, 2007-June 11, 2008.

He got plenty of help in his only visit to Citi Field on April 23, 2012, allowing one run and three hits in seven innings of a 7-2 victory.

Gregor Blanco has been superb at the plate during a seven-game hitting streak, going 12 for 23 (.522) with five RBIs and five runs. He had a two-run homer Wednesday, but he's just 1 for 6 versus Niese.

Buster Posey is 4 for 8 with two doubles and a homer off the Mets starter, but he's 1 for 17 while the Giants are 3-2 on this 10-game road trip.

Happy Recap: Game 152 - Marlins at Mets - Tejada drives in winning run, Mets Sweep Marlins..

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)
Miami (66-87)000020000250
N.Y. Mets (69-83) «200000001372
W: B. Parnell (5-4) L: R. Webb (4-3)
HR: MIA - None   NYM - D. Wright (19)

Ruben Tejada drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Sunday to give the New York Mets a 3-2 victory and a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins at Citi Field.

With two outs and the bases loaded, Tejada singled to left off Ryan Webb (4-3) to plate the winning run for the Mets, who completed their first sweep at home since taking three from the Baltimore Orioles on June 22-24.

David Wright added a two-run homer in the first and Bobby Parnell (5-4) pitched a perfect top of the ninth to earn the victory.

"It's always fun to win," said Wright. "It would be nice to finish on a strong note. You look at what the Orioles did, they finished strong last year and it carried over into this year, so it would be nice to do that."

Bryan Peterson had a sacrifice fly in the top of the fifth and Gil Velazquez scurried home from third later in the inning on a throwing error by Kelly Shoppach for the Marlins, who have dropped six of seven.

Both starters pitched effectively behind little run support from their respective teams.

Chris Young tossed six innings for the Mets and did not factor into the decision. He gave up just two runs -- one earned -- on five hits while walking two and striking out five. The Mets have only scored 12 runs for Young over his last eight home starts.

Ricky Nolasco, who also gave up two runs on five hits while walking two and fanning five, lasted seven innings for the Marlins.

"Ricky pitched well, very well," said Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen. "He made one bad pitch, that home run, but besides that he pitched a good game."

Miami tied the game in the fifth after back-to-back singles from Rob Brantly and Velazquez. Nolasco bunted both runners over and Peterson drove a deep fly ball to center, allowing both runners to tag and Brantly to score from third. Young then walked Gorkys Hernandez, who stole second base and Shoppach's throwing error allowed Velazquez to score to even the game at two.

Game Notes

The Mets have won seven-straight games against the Marlins ... Wright is three hits shy of tying Ed Kranepool for the most hits in franchise history ... Nolasco walked two batters Sunday after walking just one over his previous 34 innings.

C. Young (R) 18 4-8 4.375.10-44.269/16@MILL6.2831-117.23.06

The New York Mets have had little to cheer about in the second half of this season, but they can pick up their second straight three- game sweep of the Miami Marlins.

The Mets entered this weekend's series with one win over a 12-game span, but have since limited the Marlins to three runs in each contest this weekend. They also swept the Marlins in a three-game set in Miami from Aug. 31 - Sept. 2 by a 13-4 count.

Chris Young gets an opportunity to send the Mets to the whitewash today. The right-hander is coming off a loss at Milwaukee a week ago when he allowed three runs over 6 2/3 innings. He's 0-4 in seven home starts this year, but 3-1 in five career starts against the Marlins.

Ricky Nolasco counters for the Marlins. The righty has issued just one walk over his last 34 innings, and has struck out 22 batters in that span. Nolasco is 5-8 in 23 appearances (21 starts) against the Mets. He's 3-0 over his last four starts overall, having thrown a pair of shutouts in that time.

Yesterday, R.A. Dickey pitched into the ninth inning and Jon Rauch overcame a John Buck three-run homer to close out a Mets 4-3 victory.

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.

Recap: Game 152: Mets at Braves - Chipper beats them again with a single

Turner Field (Atlanta, Ga.)

W: T. Hudson (15-10) L: R. Dickey (8-13)
S: C. Kimbrel (45)
HR: NYM - None   ATL - None

Chipper Jones' RBI single in the bottom of the eighth gave the Braves a 1-0 victory over the Mets in the second test of a three-game set.

Tim Hudson (15-10) tossed eight scoreless innings for the win. He allowed four hits and walked two while striking out 10 batters.

Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth to earn his 45th save of the year as Atlanta remained alive in the race for the NL East crown. However, the Phillies can clinch the title with a win later Saturday over the Cardinals.

Martin Prado was the only batter besides Jones to record a hit for the Braves, winners in three of their last four games.

R.A. Dickey (8-13) allowed the game's lone run on three hits and six walks through 7 2/3 innings for the loss.

Ruben Tejada had two of the Mets' four hits as New York dropped its ninth game in its last 11 tries.\

Looks like according to Hudson's numbers against the Mets (14-9 against them) that the Mets will be in for a long day.

But most of the starting lineup has had some success against him.  Jose Reyes is batting .279 vs Hudson, Tejada in a short span has handled him hitting .500 (4 for 8). Angel Pagan who leads the Mets regulars with a .458 batting average against Hudson should serve the Mets well.. Not to Mention Jason Bay, who has been on fire lately , he has hit Huddy well batting .350 clip...

Unless the Mets woke up this morning tired from running the bases last night, LOL... Let's finish strong.....LGM!

Preview : Game 152 - Mets at Braves - Dickey Takes the Hill - 4:10PM

New York Mets (72-79) at Atlanta Braves (86-65), 4:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - R.A. Dickey (8-12, 3.43) Atlanta - Tim Hudson (14-10, 3.32)

Tim Hudson leads the Braves in victories this season, and more than ever Atlanta needs the veteran right-hander to be at his best this afternoon.

Losers in five of their last seven and 10 of their previous 15 contests, Atlanta's once big lead in the wild card standings has dipped to 3 1/2 games over the Cardinals. St. Louis plays in Philadelphia tonight.

The Braves were pounded, 12-2, by the Mets last night in the opener of this weekend series, putting more pressure on Hudson to turn around his season woes when facing the Mets. The righty is 1-3 with 5.06 ERA vs. New York in 2011. That includes a 6-0 loss on August 26 in Flushing, when he surrendered a season-high 11 hits along with four runs over 6 1/3 innings. Hudson's lone victory this season vs. the Mets came on August 5, also on the road, when he threw seven strong innings.

Hudson is also on a personal two-game skid, having pitched six innings in losses at St. Louis and Philadelphia. He has sparkled at home, though, with a 7-1 mark in his last nine starts at Turner Field.

Knuckleball specialist R.A. Dickey had a three-start winning streak broken his last time out, losing 3-2 to the Nationals on Monday. He's 1-3 with a 4.54 ERA in nine games (6 starts) vs. Atlanta.
