Preview: Game 25
Miami Marlins (11-13) at New York Mets (13-11)
Pitching Probables - Tom Koehler (2-1) 2.13 ERA vs Dillon Gee (1-1) 3.58 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 1:10PM


A day after the Marlins completed an impressive rally, Tom Koehler looks to continue his strong start and help Miami win its first road series of the season Sunday against the New York Mets.

Miami (11-13) finished at the bottom of the NL East at 62-100 last year, partly due to a 26-55 mark on the road. The Marlins have been even worse on the road so far in 2014, dropping nine of 11.

They seemed headed for another road defeat Saturday, but a five-run sixth inning combined with a homer from Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the 10th gave them a 7-6 win.

The Marlins, though, are hitting .223 while averaging 2.9 runs on the road compared to .293 and 5.8 at home. Koehler (2-1, 2.13 ERA) is surely aware of that difference.

The right-hander has been backed by 18 total runs in his victories -- both at home -- but has received just two in his other two outings, which resulted in road defeats for Miami.

That was the case again Monday, when Koehler allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings while not getting a decision in a 4-2 loss at Atlanta.

Poor run support is precisely why Koehler is just 1-1 in seven games -- four starts -- against the Mets. A Bronx native who attended nearby Stony Brook, Koehler has been backed by seven total runs in those meetings, undermining his 2.35 ERA and 18 consecutive scoreless innings over his last three starts.

Daniel Murphy is a bright spot in the Mets Lineup vs Koehler as he is batting .364 (4 for 11) with a HR. The Mets team combined that has faced him is batting .194 (13 for 67)

He held the Mets (13-11) to just three hits in eight innings of a 1-0 win at Citi Field on Sept. 15.

New York will counter with Dillon Gee (1-1, 3.58), who can empathize with Koehler's lack of support. The right-hander only allowed two runs in the fourth inning before leaving after the sixth Tuesday, but he was charged with the 3-0 loss to St. Louis.

Gee is 2-0 with a 3.09 ERA in four career starts against the Marlins, going 1-0 in two home meetings while holding them to one run while fanning 14 batters in 13 1/3 innings. The Marlins as a team (that have faced him) are batting a combined .286 (14 for 49) with 2 HR's...(Giancarlo Stanton 1, Greg Dobbs 1)..

Tough one for the Mets, might be a pitching matchup in the works.... LGM!

Recap: Game 25 - Mets (1) at Marlins (2) - Hefner loses heartbreaker

N.Y. Mets (10-15)000010000140
Miami (8-19)«000000002250

W: R. Webb (1-1) L: J. Hefner (0-3)
HR: NYM - None   MIA - None

Juan Pierre scored the game-winning run on Brandon Lyon's ninth-inning, bases-loaded wild pitch, as the Miami Marlins again rallied for a 2-1 victory over the slumping New York Mets in the middle test of a three-game set at Marlins Park.

Chris Coghlan and Juan Pierre reached safely to put runners on the corners to open up the ninth, Donovan Solano poked an RBI single to right to tie the game. Lyon, who was dealt with a blown save, then replaced starter Jeremy Hefner and was forced to intentionally walk Placido Polanco. His breaking ball attempt in the dirt, though, scooted past Anthony Recker to easily score Pierre for the game-winner.

The N.L. East rivals met less than 24 hours following Monday's 15-inning, 5- hour, 31-minute marathon which the Marlins won, 4-3. Tuesday's game, however, lasted just 2 hours and 25 minutes.

Miami, which has won three straight, saw starter Kevin Slowey last eight innings and allow a run on eight hits. Ryan Webb (1-1) picked up the win with a perfect ninth.

Recker's sacrifice fly in the fifth proved to be the only offense for the Mets, who extended their season-high losing streak to six games and once again let a late lead slip away versus the Marlins. Hefner (0-3) tossed eight-plus innings and was tabbed for two runs on four hits, though he did strikeout eight in defeat.

In similar fashion to Monday's game-tying ninth-inning rally, Miami broke out the bats when it mattered most. Coghlan led off the frame with a pinch-hit single and quickly advanced to second on Hefner's wild pitch.

The Mets looked to catch a break as the next batter, Pierre, dropped a bunt down in front of home plate and Recker attempted to throw Coghlan out at third. David Wright applied the tag as Coghlan appeared to overslide the base, but was ruled safe to keep runners on the corners with no outs.

New York's only offense came in the fifth. Daniel Murphy smacked a leadoff double and Ike Davis followed with a deep fly to center which moved Murphy to third. Recker then made it 1-0 with a sac fly to left.

Game Notes

Hefner's last victory came versus Miami on October 3, 2012 ... The Mets have lost in all of his six starts this season ... Slowey is still searching for his first win since September 18, 2010, while with Minnesota ... Miami outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was sent to the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a strained hamstring he suffered in Monday's win ... It's the Marlins' first three-game winning streak since July 4-6 of last season ... The Mets have scored 11 total runs during the losing skid.

K. Slowey (R) 5 0-2 2.435.20-12.954/25CHCND6.0530-017.12.60

Tough-luck right-hander Kevin Slowey can make it two straight wins for the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night when they host the New York Mets in the second of three games at Marlins Park.

Slowey, a 13-game winner with the Minnesota Twins in 2010, is winless in 19 big-league outings since, including 14 with the Twins in 2011 and five more this season since signing with Miami in the offseason.

He's allowed three runs or less in each of five appearances with the Marlins, but has emerged with a pair of losses and three no-decisions for his trouble.

The Marlins are 1-4 in games he's pitched and have been outscored, 12-6.

Slowey lost his lone career start against New York after allowing five runs on six hits in six innings.

He's opposed by second-year righty Jeremy Hafner, who also makes a sixth attempt at a first win in 2013.

The 27-year-old was beaten in starts against the Marlins and Philadelphia while allowing 11 hits and six runs in nine innings on April 5 and 10, then gave up two runs in a one-inning relief outing on April 18 in Colorado.

Two starts since have yielded two no-decisions, first against Washington and then against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Recap: Game 25 - Mets at Astros - Mets Get Swept in Houston

Minute Maid Park (Houston, TX)

N.Y. Mets (13-12)000100000170
Houston (11-14) «03203000x8150

W: W. Rodriguez (3-2) L: C. Schwinden (0-1)
HR: NYM - None   HOU - C. Johnson (1),C. Johnson (2)


Chris Johnson hit two home runs and knocked in a career-high six RBI as the Houston Astros defeated the New York Mets, 8-1, to complete the sweep of a three-game set at Minute Maid Park.

"This is probably my best day in the major leagues so far. This is something I'll never forget," said Johnson.

Wandy Rodriguez (3-2) allowed one run on six hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings for Houston, which took all three games of a series against New York for the first time since August 1-3, 2008.

Chris Schwinden (0-1) gave up five runs on six hits and two walks in just four innings to suffer the loss.

Ruben Tejada had three of New York's seven hits, while Andres Torres knocked in the

lone run for the Mets, who lost for the fourth time in six games.

Houston struck first in the second inning when Johnson followed back-to-back singles by Jed Lowrie and Brian Bogusevic with a shot over the left-field wall for a 3-0 Astros lead.

Johnson's second home run of the year, and the game, came in the third inning on a two-run blast to left-center field, giving Houston a five-run advantage.

New York got on the board in the fourth inning when David Wright led off the frame with a walk, stole second and came home on Torres' two-out base hit through the right side of the infield.

But the Astros pulled away for good in the fifth off reliever Manny Acosta. After a pair of one-out singles by Carlos Lee and Lowrie placed runners on the corners, Bogusevic pulled a double down the right-field line to score Lee.

Johnson's base hit to left then plated Lowrie before Jason Castro lined a single to right to bring home Bogusevic and give the Astros an 8-1 lead.

The Mets were shut down from there, stranding a runner on third in the sixth and eighth innings as the Astros rolled to their fifth win in seven games.

"They played great, they pitched great and it's tough to hit when you are behind so far. But that's a credit to the way they pitched," Mets manager Terry Collins said about the Astros.

Game Notes

The Astros' Jordan Schafer had two walks and has now reached base safely in 24 straight games, but left in the top of the fifth inning with lower back tightness on his left side...Wright extended his hit streak to nine games. He has reached base safely in 21 of his 22 games this season...Tejada hit two doubles, giving him 10 on the year...It was Houston's first series sweep of the season.

Right-hander Chris Schwinden makes his second start of the season today when the New York Mets try to avoid a sweep in the finale of their three-game set against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

Schwinden, a 22nd-round pick of the Mets in 2008, made four starts and was winless in two decisions with New York in his first stint in the majors last season and made his 2012 debut with a four-inning outing on April 27 in an 18-9 slugfest loss at Colorado.

He lasted just four innings and allowed six runs on seven hits.

Schwinden was pulled into the rotation on an emergency basis when regular starter Mike Pelfrey suffered elbow pain and was ultimately diagnosed with a ligament tear that will required Tommy John surgery and an extended rehab.

He has never faced the Astros.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 25 - Mets at Nationals

New York Mets (11-13) at Washington Nationals (10-13), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Chris Capuano (2-1, 5.95) Washington - Livan Hernandez (2-2, 3.48)

A 2-12 stretch earlier this month left the New York Mets searching for answers. So far the club has been looking in all the right places and will take aim at its seventh straight win tonight in the finale of a three-game series against the Washington Nationals in D.C.

The Mets recorded their sixth straight win with Wednesday's 6-3 triumph at Nationals Park, where they posted four runs in the top of the ninth inning to secure the lead for good and extend their winning run. Daniel Murphy roped a two-run double in the top of the ninth and also finished with a home run and three RBI for New York, which is on its longest winning streak since prevailing eight consecutive times from June 10-18 last season.

"You got to give Murphy credit tonight," Nationals manager Jim Riggleman said. "He hurt us twice tonight. He's a tough out to deal with."

Jason Bay and Ike Davis had two hits apiece, while Mets starter R.A. Dickey did not record a decision with 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball. He allowed eight hits, walked one and struck out three batters. Pedro Beato claimed the victory by working the eighth inning and Francisco Rodriguez logged his sixth save with a scoreless bottom of the ninth inning.

After tonight's matchup in the nation's capital, the Mets will make a stop at rival Philadelphia for three games over the weekend.
