HR: WAS - I. Desmond (1),G. Gonzalez (1)   NYM - None

Recap:

Gio Gonzalez homered in his first start of the season for the second straight year, and the Nationals hurler was just as impressive on the mound as Washington downed the New York Mets, 5-1, in the second installment of a season-opening three-game series.

Gonzalez (1-0) surrendered a run in the first inning when Juan Lagares led off with a triple into the right-field gap and scored on David Wright's sac fly.

The right-hander settled down from there, though, allowing just two more hits and one walk over six frames while adding some insurance with his bat.

Ian Desmond broke a 1-1 tie in the fifth inning with a leadoff homer off Mets offseason acquisition Bartolo Colon, and Gonzalez followed two batters later by clobbering Colon's high fastball over the left-field fence for his third career home run.

Colon (0-1) lasted six frames and was charged with three runs on nine hits to take the loss for the Mets, who lost in 10 innings on Opening Day.

Consecutive one-out doubles by Jayson Werth and Adam LaRoche tied the game in the fourth, and Denard Span scored a pair of runs in the later innings to give Washington some breathing room.

Span sped home on a Gonzalez Germen wild pitch in the seventh, then tripled and scored on Anthony Rendon's groundout in the ninth.

The Mets ran themselves out of a run in the fifth when Ruben Tejada tried scoring from first on a Lagares gapper to left. The relay throw home easily beat Tejada to the plate, and the runner, not wanting to break MLB's new rules on running over the catcher, surrendered himself for the final out.

Lagares's double was New York's third and final hit.

Mets Facts: The Mets only had two official at-bats with runners in scoring position ... New York has struck out 31 times over the first two games -- eight more than the most in team history.

Recap:
Final Score: New York 8, San Diego 4

The New York Mets think they have the ace of their rotation in Matt Harvey, and if his first start of the season was any indication, they may be right.

The 24-year-old right-hander dominated with 10 strikeouts over seven shutout innings, and the Mets smacked the Padres, 8-4, on Wednesday at Citi Field.

Ike Davis, Lucas Duda and John Buck each hit two-run homers to back up Harvey (1-0), who began his first full season by allowing just one hit and two walks. After crushing the Padres, 11-2, on Opening Day, the Mets will look to sweep the season-opening series on Thursday.

San Diego starter Clayton Richard (0-1), last season's National League leader in home runs allowed, gave up all three of New York's homers. He lasted just 4 1/3 innings, giving up eight runs -- seven earned -- on seven hits.

Carlos Quentin and Nick Hundley each contributed an RBI for the Padres.

Harvey got going early, fanning five of the first nine Padres and was perfect through three innings. Everth Cabrera had the Padres first hit in the fourth, but was later picked off and Harvey forced an inning ending double-play soon after to escape his only jam of the evening.

The Mets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second on the bat of Duda, who crushed Richard's fastball down the middle into the 10th row of the right field upper deck.

In his next at-bat, Duda raked another shot into right, this one for a double. Buck followed, and his opposite field liner just cleared the right-field fence to give the Mets a four-run cushion by the end of the fourth.

New York then broke it open in the fifth by plating four more, with Davis' deep two-run blast highlighting the inning and Buck delivering the final score with an RBI single.

David Wright got it started, though, when he ripped an RBI double down the left field line to score Daniel Murphy from first. Richard was yanked after walking Marlon Byrd and the Mets had a commanding 8-0 lead going into sixth.

Preview: Game 2 - Padres at Mets - Richard vs Harvey


San Diego Padres (0-1) at New York Mets (1-0), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: San Diego - Clayton Richard (0-0, 0.00) NY Mets - Matt Harvey (0-0, 0.00)

Preview:

Right-hander Matt Harvey begins his first full season in the majors on Wednesday when the New York Mets continue a three-game series with the San Diego Padres at Citi Field.

Big things are expected for the former seventh overall pick, who started 10 games for the Mets last season and was 3-5 with a 2.73 ERA.

"Matt Harvey, when the season was over, we said, 'Hey look, your changeup has got to be another pitch you need to use.' And all he did was come to Spring Training and worked hard to use it, and it became a very effective pitch," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "So he's made adjustments himself already."

The thought Mets offensive numbers looked weak at .226 vs Jurrjens, but the Braves numbers against R.A.Dickey are worse. The Braves are ONLY hitting .180 (24 for 124) with 23 K's...Only the great Chipper Jones (who is hurt) has hit him well in the past batting .500 off Mr. Dickey..

The other big hitters in the Braves Lineup including Prado, Heywood, Uggla, and McCann are batting a combined .125 (8 for 64).. Dan Uggla alone is hitless against Dickey in 21 AB's....

It looks like Mr. Dickey can handle the Braves on paper, but the beautiful thing about baseball is anything can happen... LGM!

Mets go into Game 2 seeing RHP Jair Jurrjens. The 2012 Mets Roster have not hit Jurrjens with authority in the past. The Mets collectively have only hit .a poor .229 (24 for 105) and only Daniel Murphy (.304) and Josh Thole (.273) have had some success against the 26 year old.

Let's hope that Jurrjens presses and the Mets can put a pounding on him... LGM!

Preview - Game 2 - Braves at Mets - Dickey tries for two in row


Atlanta Braves (0-1) at New York Mets (1-0), 1:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Atlanta - Jair Jurrjens (0-0, 0.00) New York - R.A. Dickey (0-0, 0.00)

Jair Jurrjens got off to a sparkling start in 2011. Atlanta is hoping the 26-year-old right-hander can repeat the magic from early last season, but avoid the rough patch that saw him end the year.

Jurrjens will be on the mound today for the Braves when they resume their season-opening series against the New York Mets. He began 2011 5-0 over his first six starts, but struggled down the stretch by allowing at least five runs in three of his last four appearances. That led to a 13-6 record with a 2.96 ERA in 23 starts, but he sat out September due to a knee injury.

Over 13 career starts against the Mets, Jurrjens has posted an 8-4 mark with a 2.94 ERA. Last season, he was 1-2 in three starts vs. New York.

R.A. Dickey will try to follow in the footsteps of a successful season-opening performance from Johan Santana when he gets the ball for the Mets. Dickey, a knuckleball specialist, went 8-13 with a 3.28 ERA in 33 games (32 starts) last year. He was winless in his last three starts, mostly due to little run support.
