Recap: Game 20 - Cardinals (3) at Mets (0) - Wainwright + Co. blanks Mets


St. Louis

New York

W: A. Wainwright (4-1) L: D. Gee (1-1) S: T. Rosenthal (6)
HR: STL - None   NYM - None


St. Louis pitcher Adam Wainwright tossed seven scoreless innings before leaving Tuesday's 3-0 win over the New York Mets with a hyperextended right knee.

Wainwright (4-1) was at 79 pitches when he stumbled awkwardly while trying to field a chopper on a play that ended the seventh inning. He gave up just four hits and struck out three.

The right-hander was coming off a two-hit shutout last Thursday in an 8-0 win at Washington.

Jon Jay went 2-for-4 with two RBI for the Cardinals, who improved to 5-4 on an 11-game road trip. Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with an RBI and run scored.

Dillon Gee (1-1) allowed two runs on six hits over six innings for the Mets, who fell to 2-3 on a 10-game homestand. He had four strikeouts and two walks.

The Cardinals got on the board in the fourth. Holliday walked, Matt Adams singled and Yadier Molina singled to load the bases with no outs. Jay followed with a two-run single to center. St. Louis couldn't get anything else in the inning.

Holliday robbed Chris Young of a tying homer in the fifth. After Daniel Murphy reached base on a bunt single, Holliday reached over the left-field fence to take a homer away from Young.

Holliday added an RBI single in the ninth to make it 3-0.

After Wainwright exited, Kevin Siegrist pitched a perfect eighth and Trevor Rosenthal tossed a scoreless ninth to record his sixth save of the season.

Game Notes

Wainwright improved to 3-4 lifetime against the Mets ... Molina extended his hitting streak to 13 games ... New York third baseman David Wright had a 12- game hitting streak snapped after going 0-for-4.

St Louis Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright (3-1) hopes to register his fourth victory, David Wright looks to extend his hitting streak to 13 games Tuesday night when the Mets (10-9) try to take the first two in this four-game series.

After allowing season highs of four runs and seven hits over seven innings in a 10-4 home win over the Chicago Cubs on April 12, Wainwright (3-1, 1.80 ERA) shined in an 8-0 victory at Washington on Thursday.

The right-hander gave up two hits in his seventh career shutout, retiring 18 consecutive batters during one stretch. He's struck out at least seven in all four starts, ranking among the NL leaders with 32 in 30 innings.

St. Louis starters have again been among the best in baseball with a 2.33 ERA, including a 0.90 mark over the last eight games. The Cardinals (11-9), however, have gone 4-4 over that span while totaling four runs in the defeats.

They were shut out for the third time in a 2-0 loss Monday, dropping to 2-4 in their last six games.

Wright delivered a key hit for the Mets (10-9) with an RBI single in the third inning to extend his hitting streak. He has eight hits in his last three games and is batting .429 over his last nine against St. Louis.

Wainwright has not had the easiest time against the Mets in his career. He is 2-4 with a 6.02 ERA.  The current group of Mets are batting .301 (22 for 73) off him.  David Wright has gone 5 for 14 (.357) with two doubles when facing Wainwright, while Daniel Murphy is 6 for 11 (.545) with a triple and two doubles. Lucas Duda has gone yard (1) vs Wainwright batting .250 (2 for 8). Kirk Nieuwenhuis,  who might spell Curtis Granderson  (0 for 19) is batting .400 ( 2 for 5 ) off Wainwright.

Bobby Abreu could make his debut for the Mets after getting called up Monday. The 40-year-old slugger hit .395 with one homer and nine RBIs in 15 games at Triple-A Las Vegas.

New York starter Dillon Gee (1-0, 3.71) will try to build on Wednesday's strong outing when he retired the first 14 batters and allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings in a 5-2 win at Arizona.

The right-hander, who has limited opponents to a .196 batting average, has gone 2-0 with a 2.18 ERA in three home starts against the Cardinals. He is overall 2-1  with a 3.65 ERA in his career.

Matt Holiday and Yadier Molina are a combined 5 for 24 off Gee, while Allen Craig is 4 for 8 with a home run. With two hits Monday, Molina is batting .408 over a 12-game hitting streak.

Wainwright has received 18 runs of support in his last two outings after being given two runs in his first two. He had an 8.46 ERA while losing four straight starts against New York before allowing four hits over seven scoreless innings in a 2-1 road win June 13.

Recap: Game 20 - Dodgers (3) at Mets (2) - Rice Takes Loss

L.A. Dodgers (10-11)«100000002361
N.Y. Mets (10-10)000001001250

W: K. Jansen (1-0) L: S. Rice (1-1) S: B. League (6)
HR: LAD - None   NYM - I. Davis (4)


Andre Ethier hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers, boosted by a sharp outing from Hyun-Jin Ryu, defeated the New York Mets 3-2 Thursday.

After Ryu and Mets starter Jeremy Hefner each threw seven impressive innings and left with the score 1-all, the Dodgers won a game decided by the bullpens.

Nick Punto opened the ninth with a double off Scott Rice (1-1) and moved to third on a grounder to the right side by Adrian Gonzalez. After an intentional walk to Matt Kemp, Mets manager Terry Collins visited the left-handed Rice on the mound.

The left-handed Ethier put the Dodgers ahead with his hit, and Juan Uribe drove in another run with an infield single for a 3-1 lead.

Ike Davis led off the Mets' ninth with a home run against Brandon League. But League, who gave up a ninth-inning lead Wednesday in a game the Dodgers lost in the 10th, closed for his sixth save.

Kenley Jansen (1-0) escaped a two-on, no-out jam in the eighth.

Ryu turned in his best and longest outing yet, holding the Mets to three hits. The rookie from South Korea struck out eight and walked three.

Ryu didn't get a lot of backing from the Los Angeles bats while he was in the game - he got plenty of support from the fans, however. A large Korean neighborhood is just one subway stop away from Citi Field, and Ryu had a lot of vocal rooters, starting from his very first pitch.

The 26-year-old lefty blanked the Mets on one single until the sixth. A leadoff walk to Ruben Tejada, a single by Daniel Murphy and a wild pitch on a breaking ball Ryu bounced set up David Wright's tying sacrifice fly.

Ryu gave up a two-out double to Marlon Byrd before striking out Davis to keep the score 1-all.

Hefner began the day with a 7.07 ERA and pitched his best game of the season, too. He limited the Dodgers to three hits, striking out four and walking three.

The Mets put runners at first and second with no outs in the eighth against Jansen before he struck out Wright, retired Lucas Duda on a fly and fanned Byrd.

The Dodgers scored in the first when leadoff man Carl Crawford was hit by a pitch and Kemp hit an RBI single.

GAME NOTES: Uribe drew three walks before his single. ... Collins said LHP Jonathan Niese would have a bullpen session during the day and start as scheduled Sunday vs. the Phillies. Niese was hit near the right ankle by a comebacker Tuesday. ... Dodgers RHP Shawn Tolleson was set for surgery Thursday to repair a herniated disk in his lower back. He's expected to be out three to five months.

The New York Mets look to carry the momentum from their late-inning magic into Thursday's matinee when they shoot for a series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citi Field.

The Mets evened their series versus L.A. with Wednesday's 7-3 win thanks to Jordany Valdespin's grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning. After Lucas Duda was intentionally walked to fill the bags with one out, Valdespin sent Josh Wall's offering over the fence for the win.

"I wasn't thinking about hitting a home run, I was just trying to hit the ball well," Valdespin said.

David Wright tied the game in the bottom of the ninth with an RBI single for the Mets, who have alternated wins and losses over the past six games and are 3-2 on a nine-game homestand.

Mets starter Matt Harvey was 4-0 entering the night and did not record a decision. He gave up three runs in six innings with seven strikeouts and one walk. Bobby Parnell was the winner with a scoreless inning of relief.

New York will host Philadelphia for three games this weekend, but will go for the series win over the Dodgers with Jeremy Hefner on the mound. Hefner is 0-2 with a 7.07 earned run average in four games, three of which have been starts, this season. He threw four innings in Saturday's 7-6 loss to Washington and was reached for three runs and four hits in the no-decision.

Offense was alive and well on Friday at Coors Field as the Colorado Rockies exploded for 11 runs in the fifth inning and pounded the New York Mets, 18-9, in the opener of a three-game set.

The Rockies, who pounded out 19 hits in the game, were led by Carlos Gonzalez, who finished 3-for-6 with six RBI and a run scored. Ramon Hernandez crushed a grand slam, Troy Tulowitzki added a solo shot and Dexter Fowler clubbed a three-run homer.

Every player in the Rockies' starting lineup, including starter Drew Pomeranz had at least one hit, while Todd Helton and Jonathan Herrera each added an RBI for Colorado, which bounced back from a 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Thursday in a big way.

Matt Reynolds (3-0) gave up two hits and no runs in one inning of work to earn the win, while Manny Acosta (0-1) was tagged for seven runs -- four earned -- on five hits and two walks in just 1/3 of an inning to suffer the loss.

Scott Hairston hit for the cycle in just four at-bats, scored three times and knocked in four runs, Ruben Tejada had four hits and two runs scored, while Lucas Duda had two RBI for the Mets, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Hairston's cycle was the 10th in Mets franchise history and he became the first Met to hit for the cycle since Jose Reyes on June 21, 2006. Other Mets to accomplish the feat include: John Olerud in 1997, Keith Hernandez in 1985, Tommie Agee in 1970 and Jim Hickman, who hit the franchise's first cycle in 1963.

Hairston had just five hits in 29 at-bats this season entering Friday's game.

Rockies Field

The New York Mets may be coming off a sweep of one of the most hyped teams in baseball, but they're also dealing with a major blow to their rotation.

The Mets will try to begin filling that void and match their longest winning streak of the young season Friday night when they open a three-game road set against the Colorado Rockies.

New York (11-8) continues to be one of the more surprising teams, and the club pulled off another impressive feat by sweeping a three-game series from Florida after scoring twice in the ninth for a 3-2 win Thursday. Justin Turner drew a bases-loaded walk off closer Heath Bell before Kirk Nieuwenhuis delivered a walkoff RBI single.

The Mets outscored the Marlins 10-4 in the series.

"Obviously, it starts on the hill," manager Terry Collins told the team's official website. "We got great pitching - tremendous pitching - this series."

While the staff compiled a 1.33 ERA over the last three games, it was also dealt a major blow as New York learned Thursday that Mike Pelfrey has a partial tear in his right elbow. He's "99 percent" certain he will have reconstructive Tommy John surgery.

Pelfrey has been a big part of the rotation over the past four years, leading the team with 45 wins in that span.

Final Score: New York 4, Arizona 1

Ike Davis' reviewed home run in the seventh inning helped the New York Mets beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 4-1, in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Carlos Beltran added an RBI single for the Mets, who have won two games in a row after dropping nine of their previous 10. New York starter Mike Pelfrey (1-2) gave up one run on five hits over seven strong innings

Joe Saunders limited the Mets to a run on two hits with three walks in six- plus innings for Arizona, which has lost five of eight.

Esmerling Vasquez (0-1) replaced Saunders after David Wright walked to begin the seventh. Vasquez retired the next two batters before Davis crushed a 1-0 offering off the center-field wall. The hit was originally ruled a double, and the umpires briefly conversed on the field before observing the replay, which showed that the ball hit above the orange line that serves as the home run boundary.

NEW YORK - APRIL 13:  Starting pitcher Mike Pe...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Arizona Diamondbacks (8-9) at New York Mets (6-13), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Arizona - Joe Saunders (0-2, 6.32) New York - Mike Pelfrey (0-2, 9.72)

New York Mets starter Mike Pelfrey began last season with a 4-0 mark and a save in his first five appearances, but hasn't enjoyed a similar start in 2011.

Pelfrey will try to snap his winless funk when he takes the ball for the Mets in tonight's opener of a three-game series versus the Arizona Diamondbacks at Citi Field. Pelfrey is 0-2 with a less desirable 9.72 earned run average in four starts this season and last pitched in a 4-0 loss at Atlanta on Saturday, allowing four runs and a season-high 11 hits in five frames.

The right-hander has permitted at least three earned runs in every start this season and hasn't enjoyed much success against Arizona. Pelfrey is 0-5 with a 6.69 ERA in seven career matchups with the Diamondbacks.

New York salvaged the finale of a three-game series versus the Houston Astros with Thursday's 9-1 victory behind Chris Capuano's seven innings of one-run ball and four strikeouts. Taylor Buchholz tossed the final two innings of relief to preserve the blowout win.

"It was good to get a win," said Mets third baseman David Wright, who ended with two hits, including a home run, two runs scored and three RBI.

Mike Nickeas and Ike Davis also belted solo homers in the win -- New York's second in the past 11 contests. The Mets also ended a seven-game home slide.

Arizona had a three-game winning streak stopped with Thursday's 7-4 loss in Cincinnati, as D'Backs starter Daniel Hudson fell to 0-4 on the season after he allowed seven runs and five hits in 5 1/3 frames.

"I saw him kick the mound one time. Just trying too hard. He's got good stuff. Was unable to locate like he wanted to," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said about Hudson.

Kelly Johnson and Stephen Drew both homered for the Diamondbacks, who lost for the fourth time in seven tries.

Gibson looks to get better results from winless starter Joe Saunders tonight against the Mets. Saunders is winless (0-2) in three starts this season and was saddled with defeat the previous time out in a 5-3 loss versus San Francisco. He allowed five runs and 12 hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Saunders, a left-hander, has never faced the Mets in his career.

Arizona has dominated this series with the Mets lately, having won five of six meetings a year ago and 11 of the past 14 matchups in the series.
