Happy Recap: Game 162 - Brewers (2) at Mets (3) - Mets Celebrate Piazza Day with Win

Milwaukee (74-88)000200000262
N.Y. Mets (74-88)«10000002x331

W: V. Black (3-0) L: B. Kintzler (3-3) S: F. Francisco (1)
HR: MIL - None   NYM - None


Eric Young won the National League stolen base crown with 46 and helped the Mets rally past Milwaukee 3-2 on Sunday when the Brewers botched two bunts in the eighth inning.

The speedy Young swiped two bases in the first, scored on a shallow sacrifice fly and later threw out a runner at the plate from left field. He began the day tied for the NL lead in steals with Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura, who sat out for the 10th time in 11 games.

Young's father led the NL in stolen bases with 53 for the Rockies in 1996.

Playing in front of their third sellout this season, the injury-riddled Mets prevented a four-game sweep by Milwaukee and finished 74-88 for the second consecutive year. They have endured five straight losing seasons since moving into Citi Field.

Before the game, former slugger Mike Piazza was inducted into the team's Hall of Fame during a 30-minute ceremony on the field.

After the final out, Young applauded as Mets players tossed their caps into the stands behind the dugout.

Center fielder Juan Lagares also cut down a Milwaukee runner at the plate in the fourth to help starter Jonathon Niese escape further damage.

Marco Estrada allowed two hits in seven sharp innings for the Brewers, who finished 74-88 for fourth place in the NL Central. They had won four games in a row and 12 of 17.

Estrada struck out eight and walked none.

Milwaukee scored twice on five singles and a walk in the fourth, then carried a 2-1 lead into the eighth. Lagares reached on a throwing error by shortstop Jeff Bianchi, and Juan Centeno dropped down a bunt in front of home plate.

Second baseman Scooter Gennett was late covering first and bumped into umpire CB Bucknor while trying to navigate his way toward the bag. The low throw from catcher Jonathan Lucroy skipped up the right field line for an error that allowed Lagares to score all the way from first.

Wilfredo Tovar sacrificed and reached safely when first baseman Sean Halton made an ill-advised throw to third. Pinch-runner Matt den Dekker beat the play, putting runners at the corners.

One out later, Young drove in the go-ahead run with a dribbler to reliever Brandon Kintzler (3-3).

Vic Black (3-0) pitched a hitless inning for the win and Frank Francisco struck out two of three batters in the ninth for his first save since Sept. 1 last year.

The Brewers try to cap the season with a four-game sweep of the Mets on Sunday at Citi Field. The Mets will also celebrate Mike Piazza going into the Mets Hall of Fame.

Milwaukee (74-87) won Saturday 4-2 in 10 innings to pick up its 12th win in 17 games, a far departure from its 2-8 start to the season. Carlos Gomez snapped out of a 3-for-25 slump with four hits, including the go-ahead single.

The Mets (73-88) have lost three straight and will finish with a losing record for a fifth straight year, but Collins is close to an agreement to remain manager as the club attempts to build a winner.

Fielding an inexperienced lineup depleted by injuries and trades, Collins has kept the Mets competitive down the stretch without most of his top players.

One thing Collins has been unable to do is find a way to beat Milwaukee at Citi Field.

The Brewers have won 10 of 11 at the Mets' ballpark.

Happy Recap: Game 162 - Mets at Marlins - Hairston, Davis Lead Mets to Victory 4-2

Marlins Park (Miami, FL)
N.Y. Mets (74-88) «0012010004100
Miami (69-93)000001010270
W: J. Hefner (4-7) L: T. Koehler (0-1)
S: B. Parnell (7)
HR: NYM - A. Torres (3),S. Hairston (20),I. Davis (32)   MIA - None

Scott Hairston clubbed a two-run homer and Ike Davis added a solo shot to lead the New York Mets to a 4-2 win over the Miami Marlins in the season finale for both teams.

Andres Torres also hit a solo homer for the Mets (74-88), who snapped a four- game skid.

Jeremy Hefner (4-7) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out seven over 7 1/3 innings in the win.

"There are obviously a lot of good things to take out of the first half and plenty of bad things from the second half. I think that we obviously have plenty of room for improvement," Mets third baseman David Wright said.

Bobby Parnell worked around a two-out single in the ninth to notch his seventh save of the year.

Gorkys Hernandez had an RBI and Bryan Petersen doubled and scored a run for the Marlins (69-93), who dropped 12 of their final 16 games of the season.

Tom Koehler (0-1) allowed three runs on six hits and struck out three over five innings to absorb the loss in his first career start.

"It wasn't a great year for all of us as a whole, we will take it for what it is worth and build for the next year," Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton said.

Torres crushed a solo homer deep to right-center field in the third to give the Mets an early lead.

Hairtson roped a two-run homer in the fourth and Davis added a solo shot in the sixth to put New York ahead 4-0.

Miami finally got on the board in the home sixth when Hernandez singled to left field to score Donnie Murphy.

A passed ball allowed Petersen to score in the eighth before a pair of walks to Stanton and Carlos Lee loaded the bases, but Manny Acosta retired Donovan Solano to end the frame.

Murphy reached on a two-out single in the ninth, but Parnell struck out Petersen to end the game.

Game Notes

The Mets recorded their fewest wins in a season (74) since 2009 when they managed just 70 victories ... Davis posted career highs in homers (32) and RBI (90) ... Reyes stole his 40th base. It is the fifth time Reyes has swiped 40 bags in a season, but the first time since 2008 when he stole 56 with the Mets.

J. Hefner (R) 12 3-7 5.325.01-34.279/26PITW7.0301-18.09.00
T. Koehler (R) 0 0-0 5.400.00-07.113/17--ND0.0000-02.13.86

Bronx-born right-hander Tom Koehler makes the first start of his major-league career Wednesday when the Miami Marlins host the New York Mets in the finale of both a three-game series and the 2012 regular season at Marlins Park.

A 26-year-old product of New York's Stony Brook University, Koehler was a 16th-round pick of the Marlins in 2008 and reached the majors with them in September.

He appeared out of the bullpen in seven straight outings while allowing a combined five runs on nine hits in 8 1/3 innings, though five of the seven appearances were scoreless.

Koehler has faced the Mets twice in his initial stretch as a big-leaguer, tossing a scoreless one-hit inning in New York on Sept. 22, following by two- thirds of an inning on Oct. 1 in Miami, when he allowed a run on three hits.

Prior to his September callup, Koehler started 27 times in 28 appearances at Triple-A New Orleans and posted a 4.17 earned run average in 151 innings.

Veteran Chad Gaudin had been scheduled to start for the first time since 2009, but he pitched an inning of relief in Miami's win in game two of the series on Tuesday.

New York replies with rookie righty Jeremy Hefner, who can end his inaugural big-league season with two consecutive victories.

The 26-year-old had dropped three straight decisions across nine appearances before ending the skid with a 6-0 defeat of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sept. 26.

Final Happy Recap: Game 162 - Reds at Mets - Batista shuts-out Reds, Jose Reyes bows out after one hit

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

N.Y. Mets «00010200x360

W: M. Batista (5-2) L: E. Volquez (5-7)
HR: CIN - None   NYM - M. Baxter (1)

First off due to prior commitments (Real JOB), It did not post last night's recap, nor the preview/lineup and I apologize ...

On that note, here is the final recap -  Jose Reyes Lead off with a bunt Single, then he walked off  first base and called it a day. Justin Turner Pinch ran for him. Terry Collins and Jose Reyes had worked this decision before the game.. Of course it was all about the batting tittle..

Jose Reyes ended up with a .337 (181/ 537) batting average,  which is leading the NL.

Ryan Braun on the other hand is hitting .335 (187/559) and has to clearly go 3-3 to make it a .338 clip and 3-4 will also push him slightly over Reyes by percentage points. Pressure will build tonight in Milwaukee at 8:10PM to see if he can do it..

Miguel Batista tossed his first shutout since 2006, a two-hitter, and the New York Mets closed out the regular season with a 3-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds at Citi Field.

The 40-year-old Batista (5-2) walked two and struck out five for the Mets, who snapped a three-game losing streak and finished 2011 with a 77-85 record.

Queens Native Mike Baxter hit a 2 run shot which extended the lead to 3-0....It was his first career shot..

Edinson Volquez (5-7) gave up three runs on six hits over seven innings for Cincinnati, which posted a 79-83 mark one year after capturing the NL Central title.
