New York

W: B. Colon (2-3) L: L. Lynn (4-1) S: D. Matsuzaka (1)
HR: STL - None   NYM - C. Young (1)


Bartolo Colon tossed seven strong innings and Daniel Murphy drove in a pair of runs to lead the New York Mets over the St. Louis Cardinals, 4-1, in the finale of a four-game set at Citi Field.

Colon (2-3) allowed just one run on four hits and struck out eight, as the Mets took three of four from the defending National League champions.

Murphy ended 2-for-4 and Chris Young hit his first homer of the season for New York, which has won seven of 10 to move two games above .500 for the season (12-10). Eric Young Jr. scored two runs and Curtis Granderson showed signs of breaking out of a season-long slump with a key RBI for his new club.

St. Louis starter Lance Lynn (4-1) was hit with the setback, marking his first career loss in March or April. The right-hander was charged with three runs -- two earned -- on four hits in 6 1/3 innings of work. He struck out nine and walked two, falling to 12-1 in the first two months of the season for his career.

The New York Mets (11-10) look to take the four game series  as they grinned out a 3-2 win with Michael Wacha on the mound, who struck out 10 Mets.. They will also have a hard time going against St. Louis Cardinals (12-10) starter Lance Lynn, who is 4-0.  Lynn is 1-1 with 3.86 ERA vs the Mets lifetime. The current group of Mets are batting a mer .194 (6 for 31) vs Lynn.

Only Positives: Daniel Murphy is batting .444 (4 for 9) and David Wright .286 (2 for 7) against Lynn.

The Mets will counter with veteran Bartolo Colon (1-3) who has been taken a beaten lately.  His last three starts he is 1-2 with a 5.86 ERA. The current group of Cardinals are batting .228 lifetime vs Colon. Matt Holliday is batting .600 (3 for 5 ) off Colon. Matt Carpenter is batting .500 (2 for 4).  Bartolo Colon is 2-0 with 3.75 vs the Cardinals in his career.

Bobby Abreu projected to get start in right field as it is a day game after a night game and Curtis Granderson has been struggling...

The Mets bats will have to come to life in this one for the Mets to be successful and Bartolo has too be more effective, which has not been the case of late... LGM!

Recap: Game 22 - Phillies(9) at Mets (4) - Mets get shelled

Philadelphia (11-14) «0030501009120
N.Y. Mets (10-12)010110001481

W: J. Pettibone (1-0) L: S. Marcum (0-1)
HR: PHI - D. Brown (3),J. Mayberry (2)   NYM - J. Buck (8)

Domonic Brown and John Mayberry, Jr. clubbed back-to-back homers to highlight a five-run fifth inning that helped lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-4 win over the New York Mets in the middle test of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Ryan Howard drove in two runs for the Phillies, while starter Jonathan Pettibone (1-0) picked up his first major league win in his second career start. Pettibone gave up three runs on seven hits and walked two in five innings.

"It seems to me when he fell behind he made pretty good pitches and got out of it," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "When he got ahead in the count he was having some problems."

David Wright went 2-for-4 with one RBI for New York, which was shut down by Kyle Kendrick in Friday's series opener, managing just three hits -- all singles -- in a 4-0 loss.

Shaun Marcum (0-1) came off the 15-day disabled list to make his Mets debut against the Phillies. Signed to a one-year contract in January, Marcum had been sidelined with a neck injury.

The right-hander departed after four frames, replaced by Robert Carson with the Mets down 3-2.

"I felt like I had a lot more left in me," Marcum said of his short outing.

Jimmy Rollins greeted the New York reliever with a leadoff double, and things only got worse for Carson.

After Michael Young worked a one-out walk, Howard singled home Rollins before Brown launched a three-run blast to right-center field. Mayberry drove Carson's next pitch over the left-field wall.

Wright brought home Ruben Tejada with a double in the bottom of the fifth, but the Phillies regained their six-run cushion on Laynce Nix's RBI single two innings later. Nix's two-out hit scored Young, who had led off with a single and advanced to third when right fielder Mike Baxter dropped a ball hit by Howard.

John Buck's leadoff homer off Jeremy Horst in the ninth was the only hit New York mustered against the Philadelphia bullpen.

Back-to-back two-out doubles by Ike Davis and Jordany Valdespin gave the Mets a 1-0 lead in the second.

Philadelphia then tagged Marcum for three runs in the third. Pettibone opened the frame with his first big league hit and scored the tying run on a ground- rule double to left-center by Chase Utley.

Rollins, who matched Pettibone with a base hit, then scored on a wild pitch. Utley took third on the errant offering and hustled home on Howard's sacrifice fly to left.

The Mets threatened to put up a crooked number, loading the bases with nobody out in the fourth. Pettibone, however, limited the damage to one run on a Davis sac fly.

Game Notes

The Phillies' nine runs were a season high ... Howard now has a nine-game hitting streak ... Young finished with three hits ... Philadelphia has won five straight at Citi Field ... To make room for Marcum, who allowed five hits and walked two, the Mets optioned pitcher Josh Edgin to Double-A Binghamton.

Shaun Marcum comes off the disabled list to make his New York Mets debut on Saturday in the resumption of a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies and their rookie starter.

Marcum, who went 7-4 in 21 games for the Brewers last season, was signed as a free agent by the Mets. The right-hander has been on the DL with a neck strain. He's 2-1 in five career games against the Phillies.

Jonathan Pettibone will try to follow up Kyle Kendrick's gem Friday night when he counters on the hill for the Phillies. Pettibone, a 22-year-old righty, made his major league debut Monday and threw 5 1/3 strong innings on a no- decision versus Pittsburgh. He fanned six in that span.

Final Score: New York 6, Colorado 5 (11 innings)

Ike Davis singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th inning and the New York Mets edged the Colorado Rockies, 6-5, in the finale of a three-game series on Sunday.

David Wright laced a leadoff base hit up the middle off Matt Belisle (1-2) in the 11th and Lucas Duda followed with single, which allowed Wright to alertly get to third base.

After Scott Hairston grounded into a fielder's choice, Davis slapped one just under the glove of Troy Tulowitzki and into left field to bring home Wright.

Frank Francisco (1-1) earned the win despite giving up a game-tying solo homer to Carlos Gonzalez in the 10th, and Ramon Ramirez survived a couple of loud outs in the 11th to earn his first save of the season.

Wright added two hits and a pair of RBI, Kirk Nieuwenhuis finished 3-for-6 with an RBI double, Josh Thole added a solo homer and Hairston contributed an RBI single for the Mets, who have won five of their last six games.

Johan Santana pitched six shutout innings, giving up just two hits and three walks while fanning five, and Miguel Batista worked a scoreless seventh before the Mets got in trouble in the eighth.

Leading, 4-0, Jon Rauch began the frame for the Mets and got off to a good start by getting Marco Scutaro to fly out, but Dexter Fowler ripped a single and Gonzalez walked. After Tulowitzki grounded out, Michael Cuddyer drew a walk to load the bases with two down.

Todd Helton was then called up to the plate as a pinch-hitter against Mets reliever Tim Byrdak. After battling Byrdak to a 2-2 count, Helton crushed a middle-in slider deep down the right field line and it landed about four rows into the seats to tie the game at four for the Rockies.

The Mets grabbed the lead in the 10th when Nieuwenhuis doubled home pinch- hitter Mike Baxter to make it 5-4, but the Rockies came right back in the home half of the frame to tie it when Gonzalez launched one to right that just got over the wall.

Earlier, the Mets struck first with three runs in their first at-bat. Nieuwenhuis got things started with a single and Ruben Tejada followed with a base hit to put two men on. After Daniel Murphy struck out, Wright brought both runners home with a double down the left field line. Duda walked and Wright swiped third to put Mets on the corners. Hairston then knocked in Wright with a single into left field to give New York a 3-0 advantage.

New York extended its lead to 4-0 in the fifth when Thole clubbed a changeup deep to right and into the Rockies bullpen off Colorado starter Jamie Moyer.

"You're going to have some comeback wins and some tough losses," Moyer said. "But I think with a game like this, it showed some good resilience for our ball club."

Game Notes

Moyer gave up four runs on 11 hits and two walks while fanning seven in five innings...It was Helton's 6th career grand slam...Wright has reached base in 18 of his 19 games this season...Scutaro had his seven-game hitting streak snapped...The Mets went 4-for-18 with runners in scoring position and stranded 14, while the Rockies were 1-for-11 with men in scoring position and left eight on base.

Lefty Jamie Moyer makes the 633rd start of his major-league career - and 25th against the New York Mets - when the Colorado Rockies host them in the finale of a three-game series at Coors Field.

He's made one appearance since and got a no-decision after pitching six innings of six-hit ball with three strikeouts in the Rockies' 5-4 loss at Pittsburgh.

Moyer is 9-6 with a 3.97 earned run average in 24 appearances against the Mets over 149 2/3 innings.

Another lefty, Johan Santana, goes after his first victory since 2010 in his fifth start of the season for New York.

The Venezuelan won 13 games in 2009 and 11 more in 2010, then underwent shoulder surgery and missed the entire 2011 season.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Arizona - Armando Galarraga (3-0, 6.00) New York - Jonathon Niese (0-3, 5.67)

The suddenly-surging New York Mets can win an unlikely fourth in a row today when they close out a three-game series with the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks at Citi Field.

The Mets split their initial eight games of 2011, then lost nine of the next 10 before starting another successful run that stretched to three games with a 6-4 win in Saturday's middle game.

Daniel Murphy hit RBI singles in the sixth and eighth innings and Jason Bay hit a solo homer and drove in three runs for the Mets, who also got a solo home run from Ike Davis.

Lefty Jonathon Niese makes his fifth attempt at a first win of the season in the series finale for New York. He's coming off a hard-luck 6-1 loss to Houston in which he allowed seven hits and two runs in six innings.

He allowed two, six and five runs in his initial three starts of 2011 while losing twice and getting a no-decision.

In 23 overall innings, he's surrendered 26 hits and 15 runs.

Niese is 0-1 in two career starts against Arizona with an 8.68 earned run average in 9 1/3 innings.

The Diamondbacks counter with unbeaten newcomer Armando Galarraga, who goes for a fourth straught win since coming over in an offseason trade with the Detroit Tigers.

The Venezuelan, who won just four times in 25 appearances in his final stint with the Tigers, has beaten the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis and Cincinnati in three National League starts.

He's given up 18 hits and 12 runs in 18 innings and has benefitted from 24 runs of support in the three starts.

Galarraga won his lone career start against the Mets after allowing five hits and four runs in six innings.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Dillon Gee (2-0) went six innings in the start, allowing two earned runs on five hits to pick up the win. He also struck out five and walked one.

Miguel Montero hit a solo homer for Arizona, which got an RBI apiece from Stephen Drew, Gerardo Parra and Ryan Roberts.

Barry Enright (0-2) went 5 2/3 innings, giving up five runs on 12 hits to take the loss.

Arizona has dominated its series with the Mets, winning five of six meetings a year ago and 11 of the past 16.
