Recap: Game 17 - Braves (7) at Mets (5) - Mets Late Comeback, Not enough

New York

W: E. Santana (2-0) L: B. Colon (1-3) S: J. Walden (1)
HR: ATL - J. Upton (5)   NYM - None


Justin Upton went 3-for-5 with a three run homer and two runs scored to help the Atlanta Braves to a 7-5 win over the New York Mets in the middle test of a three-game set.

Freddie Freeman finished 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI for the Braves, winners in seven of their last eight games.

Ervin Santana (2-0) allowed one run on six hits while fanning seven over seven innings. Over three starts this season (21 innings), the nine-year veteran has allowed just one run and struck out 24 batters.

Jordan Walden left the bases loaded in the ninth to record his first save.

David Wright and Chris Young each went 3-for-5 with two RBI and Travis d'Arnaud had two hits and an RBI for the Mets, who have dropped two straight after sweeping Arizona earlier this week.

Bartolo Colon (1-3) allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out six to saddle the loss.

The Mets struck first when Wright singled to center to bring in Eric Young Jr.

Atlanta took the lead with a pair of runs in the third. With two on and two out, Freeman tapped a soft grounder down the third base line. Colon fielded the ball and threw it past Lucas Duda at first. The ball skipped off the wall in shallow right and rolled past Curtis Granderson and into right field allowing both runners to come all the way around.

In the fifth, Freeman laced a double to right to bring Jason Heyward around for a 3-1 lead and Upton scored on Daisuke Matsuzaka's wild pitch in the eighth for a four-run edge.

Daniel Murphy and Wright opened the bottom of the eighth with back-to-back singles. After Granderson popped out, Young ripped a single to left to bring Murphy home. d'Arnaud added an RBI single two batters later to pull New York within 4-3.

Upton added a three-run shot in the ninth to center for insurance that the Braves would need.

Craig Kimbrel hit Young Jr. with a pitch before giving up a single to Murphy. Wright then doubled to center to push Young Jr. across. After Granderson struck out, Young singled to bring Murphy around to pull the Mets within 7-5.

After a mound visit, Kimbrel walked Duda to load the bases, spelling the end of his night.

Walden was brought in and got d'Arnaud to ground out to end the game.

Game Notes

Upton has five homers this season ... Atlanta was 3-for-9 with RISP ... Young Jr., who scored a pair of runs, walked twice and was hit by a pitch ... New York finished 5-for-19 with RISP ... Murphy was 3-for-5 with two runs scored.

Pitching Probables - Ervin Santana (1-0) 0.64 ERA vs Bartolo Colon (1-2) 6.00 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 7:10pm


The Mets (8-8) were shell shocked to say the least, at home against Aaron Harang and the Atlanta Braves (11-5) as they one hit them in a 6-0 Braves win.

The Mets look to bounce back with RHP Bartolo Colon on the mound, who is 4-0 with a 1.20 ERA vs the Braves. The current Braves hitters are hitting .228 vs Colon in their careers. B.J. Upton, who was in the American League, has 29 career AB's vs Colon and is batting .308 with 1 HR and 5 RBI's.. Colon got his first win vs the Braves on April 8th in a 4-0 win. He went 7 innings, giving up 6 hits,  while K'ing 5. His last time out he was bothered by a bad back and only went 5 innings in a 14-2 loss in Anaheim...

The New York Mets. will have to face the Hot RHP Ervin Santana, who is 2-0 with 0.64 ERA. His 2014 numbers are similar at 1-0 with a 0.64 ERA. His first appearance in Braves uniform he faced the Mets at home going 8 innings in a 4-3 win.  His last start was in Philly (April 14th) going 6 innings, giving up 4 hits, 1 earned run, and struck out 11 Phillies in a No decision 9-6 win. The current Mets combined are batting only .218 vs Santana. Curtis Granderson, who has seen a lot of him is batting .256 (11 for 43) with 5 HR's and 9 RBI's. Leadoff hitter Eric Young Jr. is batting .429 (3 for 7) off Santana...

The Mets will have to grind this one out and see if Sir Bart's Back can hold down the hot hitting Braves..

Happy Recap: Game 17 - Nationals at Mets - Buck hits HR #7, Parnell closes door

Washington (10-8)000000000043
N.Y. Mets (9-8)«01010000x240

W: D. Gee (1-3) L: J. Zimmermann (3-1) S: B. Parnell (2)
HR: WAS - None   NYM - J. Buck (7)

John Buck hit a solo home run and Mike Baxter added an RBI, and the New York Mets relied on 5 2/3 shutout innings from Dillon Gee to take a 2-0 victory over the Washington Nationals in the rubber match of a three-game set.

Gee (1-3) allowed just three hits and three walks while striking out six to avoid becoming the first Mets starter since Steve Trachsel in 2001 to lose his first four starts of April.

David Wright walked twice and scored a run for the Mets, who won a series versus Washington for the first time since September 2-4, 2011.

"We haven't got everything all in sync," Washington manager Davey Johnson said. "The bullpen is starting to come together and I think we'll be fine."

Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann (3-1), who was looking to become the first Nationals pitcher in 16 years to win his first four starts of the season, gave up two runs on two hits over five innings. He fanned four and walked three.

"I had to battle all day and I was behind in the count most of the day," Zimmermann said, "and when you do that, you are going to throw a lot more pitches."

Buck put the Mets on the board by leading off the bottom of the second inning with a solo blast to left for his seventh homer and 22nd RBI of the season.

Wright drew a walk in the fourth and soon advanced to third on a hit-and-run single by Ike Davis. After Lucas Duda walked to load the bases, Baxter hit a deep sacrifice fly to center to score Wright and make it 2-0.

With two outs in the top of the fifth, Gee ran into some trouble. He walked Bryce Harper and followed with a wild pitch before walking Adam LaRoche to put runners on first and second. LaTroy Hawkins then came on in relief and ended the threat by striking out Ian Desmond.

Washington's best chance of finding the scoreboard came in the eighth versus reliever Scott Rice. Steve Lombardozzi opened up the inning with a pinch-hit single and Denard Span was walked. Rice, however, forced Jayson Werth to ground into a 6-4-3 double play and then struck out Harper to end the inning and bring the home crowd to its feet.

"Jayson Werth gets paid a lot of money to be driving in runs, so he's going to be hacking in those types of situations." Rice said. "[I was thinking], 'Just get out of it. Get a ground ball, throw a strike.' I was having a little trouble getting the ball over the plate today, but I was able to make the pitch when it mattered and got out of it."

Bobby Parnell tossed a perfect ninth to pick up his second save of the season.

Game Notes

The last Washington pitcher to win his first four starts of the season was Pedro Martinez, who won his first seven outings in 1997 when the team was in Montreal ... Gee is 4-1 in seven games versus the Nationals ... Washington had won 13 of its last 15 games at Citi Field ... Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman was placed on the disabled list Saturday with a hamstring injury. Anthony Rendon replaced him in the lineup after being recalled from the minors and went 0-for-4 ... Harper and Werth combined for two of the Nationals' four hits.

Jordan Zimmermann aims to keep his perfect record intact Sunday afternoon when the Washington Nationals meet the New York Mets in the rubber match of a three-game series.

The Nationals have won 13 of their last 15 games at Citi Field, including Saturday's 7-6 triumph. Bryce Harper's second home run of the day broke a tie in the eighth inning.

Harper supplied a two-run shot earlier in the contest and went 3-for-3 with three runs scored. Adam LaRoche clubbed a three-run homer and Rafael Soriano notched his sixth save to help the Nationals bounce back from a 7-1 loss to New York on Friday.

Gio Gonzalez lasted just four frames after giving up five runs in his last inning of work, but four Washington relievers yielded one run on two hits the rest of the way, with Tyler Clippard (1-0) picking up the win with 1 1/3 scoreless innings.

John Buck's RBI double in the seventh tied it at 6-6 before Josh Edgin (0-1) served up Harper's go-ahead homer. New York starter Jeremy Hefner allowed three runs on four hits with three walks over four innings of work.

Happy Recap: Game 17 - Marlins at Mets - Mets Ruin Reyes Return to NYC, WIN 2-1

Duda driving the go ahead run
Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

Miami (7-9)000000100130
N.Y. Mets (9-8) «00000011x260

W: J. Rauch (3-0) L: E. Mujica (0-2)
S: F. Francisco (4)
HR: MIA - None   NYM - None

Lucas Duda's eighth-inning line drive hit off Edward Mujica's throwing hand allowed Kirk Nieuwenhuis to score the go-ahead run as the Mets downed the Marlins, 2-1, in Jose Reyes' return to New York.

Reyes, who spent nine years as the Mets' franchise shortstop before signing a lucrative free agent deal with the Marlins last offseason, went 0-for-4 amid a mix of cheers and boos and was overshadowed by a vintage pitchers' duel and New York's late rally.

The Mets scored the tying run after working four consecutive two-out walks against four different pitchers in the seventh inning, then scored in the next frame to win for just the second time in their last seven games.

Neither starter, New York's Johan Santana or his counterpart, Josh Johnson, factored in the decision despite both allowing just one run on three hits over 6 2/3 innings. Santana, coming off the shortest outing of his career, struck out 11, two more than Johnson.

Jon Rauch (3-0) was credited with win after throwing a perfect eighth, while Mujica (0-2) took the loss, Miami's third straight.

In his first at-bat as a visitor at Citi Field, Reyes ripped a line drive deep to the center field warning track that Nieuwenhuis grabbed just before crashing into the wall.

The highlight-reel catch started Santana's outing off on the right foot, and the two-time Cy Young Award winner was on cruise control until Giancarlo Stanton's two-out single in the seventh.

Gaby Sanchez followed with a double off the left-field wall, and though Ruben Tejada's relay throw beat a staggering Stanton home, the ball skipped by Josh Thole and the run scored.

The first chance the Mets had to score against Johnson came in the fourth, when Daniel Murphy tried racing home from third on a wild pitch but was tagged out on a bang-bang play at the plate.

Johnson was at 102 pitches after walking Duda with two outs in the seventh, and Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen opted to pull his starter. Randy Choate and Steve Cishek each walked the only batter they faced to load the bases, and Michael Dunn threw a payoff pitch that Thole took below his knees to force in New York's first run.

Pinch-Hitter Zach Lutz struck out looking to end the inning, but Nieuwenhuis began the eighth with a single and moved to third on Murphy's base hit through the right side of the infield.

After David Wright looked a strike three, Duda stepped up and laced a comebacker that hit Mujica's throwing hand and trickled behind the mound far enough for Nieuwenhuis to score the go-ahead run.

Frank Francisco worked around a one-out walk in the ninth to post his fourth save of the season.

Game Notes

Santana, who lasted just 1 1/3 innings against the Braves last Tuesday, has not received any run support while on the mound in four starts (18 innings) this season...Thole went 1-for-2 with a walk and has reached base safely in all 15 games he's played this year, extending the longest streak to begin a season by a Mets catcher...The Mets are 0-for-15 with the bases loaded this season...Reyes is the Mets' all-time leader in runs, triples and stolen bases...Miami's Omar Infante returned from a four-game absence due to a sore left groin and went hitless in four at-bats.

Preview - Games 17 - Marlins at Mets - Reyes Comes back to Citi

Miami Marlins (7-8) at New York Mets (8-8), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Miami - Josh Johnson (0-2, 5.94) New York - Johan Santana (0-2, 3.97)

During Jose Reyes' nine-year career with the Mets, he made four All-Star teams, was a National League batting champion and completely dictated just how the club's offense operated when healthy.

He also seemed a perfect fit in New York, but that union came to an expensive end this offseason.

Now a member of the new-look Miami Marlins, Reyes returns to Citi Field this evening as his new club begins a three-game series with the Mets.

It didn't take long for Reyes to establish himself as an outstanding hitter and fielder with the Mets after he was signed as an amateur free agent in August of 1999. Over his nine seasons with the Mets, the shortstop hit .292 and scored 735 runs while stealing 370 bases in 1,050 games. He led the NL with a .337 average in 2011, but struggled with injury over his last few seasons with the Mets as well.

Though New York was having financial issues this past offseason due to ownership involvement in the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme, there was always the thought that the Mets may be able to retain his services, especially after they decided against dealing him before the 2011 trade deadline.

Reyes, though, turned in his New York state of mind for the beaches of Miami in early December, signing a six-year, $106 million deal. He also added at the time of the signing that the Mets weren't really in the mix to sign him.

"It was time to move on," said Reyes. "The Mets didn't want me there. They never made a real offer."

That fact could lead to a mixed reaction for him tonight at Citi Field. Though it always stings when a franchise player leaves as a free agent, the blame may not totally be on Reyes.

"You never know, to be honest with you," Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen told his team's website. "I think ... every day [he wore] the Mets uniform, he did everything he could to win games. The Met fans should be proud he played the way he played for them. I think people should go out there and support him. Hopefully that happens."

Reyes, whom the Mets will honor with a video tribute tonight, has gotten off to a slow start with his new team, hitting .230 with six runs scored, two RBI and four steals through 15 games. He did have a pair of doubles in Saturday's loss to Washington, Miami's second in a row following a four-game win streak.

Reyes and the rest of the Marlins got an extra day to clear their heads as Sunday's finale was postponed due to poor weather.

While Reyes makes his return to New York, Omar Infante could also find his way back into the Miami lineup after sitting out the past four games due to a sore left groin.
