Recap: Game 161 - Brewers (4) at Mets (2) - The Carlos Gomez Show at Citi

W: D. Hand (1-5) L: S. Atchison (3-3) S: A. Figaro (1)
HR: MIL - C. Gomez (24)   NYM - None

Looks like he has to take a shit

The Ex Met - Carlos Gomez homered and had four hits, including a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning that sent Milwaukee past the New York Mets 4-2 on Saturday for its fourth straight victory. Gomez stole two bases in the second to give him 39 this season. The All-Star center fielder singled in the eighth before Betancourt's bases-loaded sacrifice fly gave the Brewers a 2-1 lead.

Yuniesky Betancourt drove in two runs for the Brewers (74-87), who have won six of seven and 12 of 17. Milwaukee has taken the first three in a four-game set at Citi Field -- all by the same score -- to give the club five victories in its final seven series.

Eric Young Jr. singled home the tying run for the Mets in the ninth on an 0-2 pitch from rookie Donovan Hand. David Wright had a chance to win it, but he grounded sharply into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded.

Pinch-hitter Caleb Gindl drew a four-pitch walk from Scott Atchison (3-3) to start the 10th and went to third on Jonathan Lucroy's broken-bat single. Gomez followed with a flare to right-center to put Milwaukee ahead. Betancourt added an RBI single.

Donovan Hand (1-5) initially tried for a six-out save and instead wound up with his first major league win. With the Brewers resting closer Jim Henderson, Alfredo Figaro got three straight outs for his first career save.

Captain David Wright went 0 for 5 and stranded six runners after sitting out Friday night with a sore right thumb. He grounded out ending the seventh, leaving three aboard after New York loaded the bases with no outs.

Young lined out to center field and Lucas Duda popped up before Wright came to bat. The Mets, who have managed 13 runs in their last six games, are 2 for 27 (.074) with runners in scoring position during the series.

All-Star shortstop Jean Segura returned to Milwaukee's lineup after missing nine games because of a strained right hamstring, but was lifted in the eighth. Segura and Young remained tied for tops in the NL with 44 stolen bases.

Brewers prospect Jimmy Nelson allowed one hit over five innings in his first major league start.

The Brewers (73-87) hope to have Jean Segura in their lineup on Saturday against New York, while the Mets could be without David Wright again.

A win Saturday would clinch Milwaukee's fifth series victory in its last seven to end the year. The club has won nine of 13.

Segura has missed nine straight contests due to a strained right hamstring, but manager Ron Roenicke said he could start Saturday. He's hitting .296 in 145 games and his 44 stolen bases have him tied with New York's Eric Young for the NL lead.

Wright, who has played in five games since returning from his own strained right hamstring, missed Friday's contest due to a thumb injury. He cleared concussion tests after a changeup to the helmet forced him to leave Thursday's opener, but jammed his right thumb while hitting the dirt on the same play. The Mets (73-87) could use his bat after totaling 11 runs over their last five games.

Recap: Game 161 - Mets at Marlins - Marlins Scratch One Out in the 11th, Mets Lose 4-3

Marlins Park (Miami, FL)
N.Y. Mets (73-88)00000003000390
Miami (69-92) «000111000014100

W: C. Gaudin (4-2) L: C. McHugh (0-4)
HR: NYM - None   MIA - G. Hernandez (3),R. Brantly (3)

Donovan Solano drove home the game-winning run with a single in the bottom of the 11th, as the Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets, 4-3, on Tuesday.

Jose Reyes tripled to leadoff the inning and Colin McHugh (0-4) intentionally walked Giancarlo Stanton and Carlos Lee before Solano stroked a base hit up the middle.

"We had the right man in the right spot," Guillen said of Solano. "We knew he was going to put the ball in play, he came through for us one more time."

Chad Gaudin (4-2) pitched a perfect top of the 11th to pick up the victory for the Marlins, who will go for the series sweep in Wednesday's season finale.

Adam Greenberg, who got his first major league at-bat since July 9, 2005, struck out on three pitches. The Marlins signed the 31-year-old to a one-day contract earlier on Tuesday.

"The energy in the stadium was something I never experienced in my life, and I don't know if I will ever experience again," Greenberg said.

Former Marlins pitcher Valerio De Los Santos hit Greenberg in the head during his major league debut with the Chicago Cubs over seven years ago. The incident derailed his career, as he suffered from vertigo and vision problems for some time thereafter.

Scott Hairston and David Wright drove in a run apiece for the Mets, who have lost four in a row on the heels of a three-game winning streak.

Miami starter Jacob Turner tossed a solid 7 2/3 innings. Charged with a run on three hits and two walks, Turner left the game with a lead but the Mets tied it after he exited.

Jordany Valdespin reached on a one-out double in the eighth, moved to third on a single from Daniel Murphy and scored on a base hit by Wright. A wild pitch from Heath Bell allowed Murphy to come home and Hairston reached on an infield single to tie the game at 3-3.

R.A. Dickey was unable to pick up his 21st victory of the season to help improve his Cy Young candidacy. He lasted six innings and gave up three runs -- two homers -- on seven hits. He didn't walk a batter and struck out eight in his final start of the season.

Following the game Dickey revealed he will undergo surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle on Oct. 18 in Philadelphia.

"I have a tear in my abdomen that is going to have to be surgically repaired. I did that fairly early in the season and (the Mets' training staff) have played a big part in keeping me as symptom-free as possible," Dickey said.

The Cy Young candidate said he has been dealing with the injury since April, but it was not significant enough to keep him out of action.

Gorkys Hernandez and Rob Brantly homered in consecutive innings in the fourth and the fifth for the Marlins before Greenberg got his at-bat to leadoff the sixth. Dickey made quick work of the rookie, striking him out on three knuckleballs, but the crowd and both dugouts applauded Greenberg for what has been an incredible journey.

With one away in the sixth, Reyes singled, moved to second on a base hit from Stanton and came around to score on Lee's line drive into right to give the Marlins a 3-0 lead.

Game Notes

The Mets fell to 20-22 in one run games ... The Marlins captured the series win against the Mets after being swept in the previous two ... The Mets were 4-for-10 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10 while the Marlins were 2-for-8 and left eight on base.

SeasonRd/HmLast StartLast 3 App
R. Dickey (R) 32 20-6 2.696.010-32.819/27PITW7.2832-122.22.78
J. Turner (R) 6 1-4 3.865.01-13.759/27@ATLL6.0621-218.02.50

R.A. Dickey has a chance to become the first New York Met to surpass 20 wins in 27 years, and his performances against the Miami Marlins have helped put him in that position.

The knuckleballer will also try to bolster his NL Cy Young Award hopes by continuing his mastery of the Marlins, who are expected to give Adam Greenberg a long-awaited major league at-bat Tuesday night.

Until this year, the 37-year-old Dickey had never won more than 11 games and was 41-50 over nine seasons. He even began 2010 with New York's minor league affiliate in Buffalo.

If he wins Tuesday, Dickey (20-6, 2.69 ERA) will become the first Met with 21 or more victories in a season since Dwight Gooden went 24-4 in 1985 en route to claiming the franchise's last Cy Young.

Tom Seaver won at least 21 games for New York in 1969, 1972 and 1975, and Jerry Koosman hit that mark in 1976.

"My sole concern again is just to try to put up a good outing," Dickey told the team's official website. "And at the end, you hope that your statistics speak loudly enough that you're in the (Cy Young) race."

Dickey is also seeking to become the first knuckleballer with at least 21 wins since Atlanta's Phil Niekro and Houston's Joe Niekro both did so in 1979, and the first pitcher for a sub-.500 team since Roger Clemens went 21-7 for Toronto in 1997.

A start against the Marlins (68-92) would appear to give Dickey a prime opportunity to accomplish all those goals. He's 8-0 with a 0.92 ERA over his last eight matchups and has five wins versus Miami this season.

Preview : Game 161 - Reds at Mets - Capuano tries to get to .500 for year

Cincinnati Reds (78-82) at New York Mets (76-84), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Cincinnati - Bronson Arroyo (9-12, 5.09) New York - Chris Capuano (11-12, 4.55)

Right-hander Bronson Arroyo gets a final 2011 crack at a seventh double-digit win season tonight when the Cincinnati Reds visit the New York Mets in the middle test of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Arroyo, a 34-year-old native of Key West, Fla., has won 10 or more games in four of five seasons with the Reds since he was acquired from Boston in a trade for Wily Mo Pena.

He was a double-digit winner twice for the Red Sox, including a 10-9 record in 32 appearances for the 2004 World Series champions.

His 17 wins last season were a career high.

Arroyo got within a game of win No. 10 with a gem in his last start, when he tossed a six-hit shutout against the Houston Astros while walking none and striking out two in a 2-0 decision on Sept. 21.

He is 7-3 in 12 career start against the Mets with a 3.49 earned run average across 87 2/3 innings.

On Monday, Chris Heisey's three-run home run powered the Reds to a 6-5 victory.

Logan Ondrusek (5-5) stranded two runners in the sixth inning to earn the win in relief of starter Homer Bailey, who tossed five innings, allowing four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out seven.
