Happy Recap: Game 26 - Mets (6) at Phillies (1) - Niese stays cool in the rain, battles to win


New York


W: J. Niese (2-2) L: C. Hamels (0-2)
HR: NYM - None   PHI - M. Byrd (3)


Ruben Tejada went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored, Jon Niese spun seven stellar innings of one-run ball, and the New York Mets downed the Philadelphia Phillies 6-1 on Tuesday in the opener of a brief two-game series.

Daniel Murphy recorded three hits, an RBI and a run scored, while Chris Young knocked in a run and scored twice in support of Niese (2-2), who struck out five and scattered four hits with a walk over his solid start.

Niese helped his own cause with a bases-loaded walk in the fourth, as the Mets secured their second straight victory and fifth in their last six games.

Philadelphia starter Cole Hamels (0-2) had a forgettable outing, surrendering six runs on eight hits with five walks in just 4 2/3 frames. Hamels, who was making his first start of the season at Citizens Bank Park after starting the campaign on the disabled list, threw just 55 of his 106 pitches for strikes.

Marlon Byrd belted a homer to account for the lone run for the Phillies, who had a two-game win streak halted.

The Mets scored against Hamels early and often, plating one run in the third, two in the fourth and three more in the fifth to create a comfortable lead.

Tejada opened the third with a double, moved to third on Niese's bunt and scored two batters later on Murphy's single to right to make it 1-0.

Hamels' control issues surfaced in the fourth, as the Phillies southpaw walked Young and Curtis Granderson before Josh Satin smacked a single to center to score Young for a 2-0 lead.

After striking out Travis d'Arnaud, Hamels walked Tejada to load the bases and then issued another free pass -- his fourth of the inning -- to Niese, allowing Granderson to trot home for a 3-0 edge.

Byrd's two-out blast in the bottom of the frame got the home team on the board, but Murphy opened the fifth with a single and then stole second before scoring on Young's double to center.

After grounding out Granderson, Hamels plunked Satin and walked d'Arnaud to load the bases for Tejada, who sliced a single into shallow center field to score Young and Satin for a 6-1 lead.

Niese held the Phillies to two singles over the next three frames before Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jose Valverde each fired a scoreless inning in relief to nail down the victory.

Game Notes

Murphy extended his hit streak to 10 games and stole second base in the fifth inning for his 28th consecutive stolen base ... The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 28 minutes due to rain ... Phillies center fielder Ben Revere went 0-for-4 but stole his 10th base of the season in the setback.

W. LeBlanc (L) 5 0-4 6.205.10-37.474/26CHCL6.0840-213.28.56

Texas-born right-hander Dillon Gee makes his first start since his 27th birthday on Wednesday when the New York Mets visit Marlins Park for the finale of a three-game series with the Miami Marlins.

Gee, who celebrated a birthday on Sunday, was a 13-game winner for the Mets in 2011 before skidding to just six wins in 17 starts last season.

He lost his initial three outings of 2013 before breaking through with a 2-0 defeat of Washington on April 21, in which he tossed 5 2/3 innings of scoreless three-hit ball with six strikeouts.

A subsequent start five days later yielded loss No. 4 after Gee was tagged for seven hits and four runs in six innings of a 4-0 loss to Philadelphia.

He's 1-0 in two lifetime outings against Miami.

Miami replies with lefty Wade LeBlanc, who once again aims for a first win of 2013 in his sixth start.

The Louisiana native lost his initial three starts before a no-decision at Cincinnati on April 20. Like Gee, a fifth start resulted in a fourth loss after he gave up four runs on eight hits in six innings against the Chicago Cubs.

Chicago won the game, 4-2, and dropped the Marlins to 0-5 in games LeBlanc has pitched.

The southpaw is 0-1 in six career meetings with the Mets, though he's maintained a stingy 2.42 earned run average through 22 1/3 innings.

On Tuesday, Juan Pierre scored the game-winning run on Brandon Lyon's ninth- inning, bases-loaded wild pitch as the Marlins again rallied for a 2-1 victory over the slumping Mets.

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.

Recap: Game 26 - Diamondbacks at Mets - Rauch Snake Bitten in 8th

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

Arizona (14-13) «020000030581

W: B. Ziegler (1-1) L: J. Rauch (3-1)

HR: ARI - C. Ransom (3)   NYM - None


Cody Ransom's RBI singled capped a three-run eighth inning the Arizona Diamondbacks used to down the New York Mets, 5-4, in the first of a three-game set at Citi Field.

Ransom also hit a two-run home run and finished with three RBI for the Diamondbacks, who snapped a two-game slide.

Brad Ziegler (1-1) earned the win with a scoreless inning of relief, while Wade Miley allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks in a six-inning start for Arizona.

J.J. Putz tossed a perfect ninth for his sixth save of the year.

Jon Rauch (3-1) took the loss, giving up three hits and a run in two-thirds of an inning on the mound. Dillon Gee started the game for the Mets, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over six full frames.

Scott Hairston drove in a pair of runs for New York, which dropped its fourth straight game.

The Diamondbacks entered the eighth inning trailing, 4-2, after stranding a man on second base in the fifth and sixth innings, but was able to rally against the Mets' bullpen to take the lead.

Justin Upton led off the eighth with a hard grounder to first off Bobby Parnell that slipped through the legs of Ike Davis, and Jason Kubel followed with a walk off new pitcher Tim Byrdak to place runners on first and second.

Rauch took the bump next after Byrdak fanned Miguel Montero and Paul Goldschmidt greeted the new hurler by hammering a double into the right-center field gap to bring home Upton and Kubel.

Ransom followed with a base hit to bring home Goldschmidt and pinch-hitter Lyle Overbay later hit a ground-rule double to put runners on second and third, but Willie Bloomquist went down swinging to end the inning as Arizona took a 5-4 lead.

David Hernandez then stranded the tying run on third in the bottom of the eighth before Putz entered for the ninth and struck out Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Ruben Tejada before Daniel Murphy lined a ball to left-center field that Gerardo Parra snagged with a diving effort to end the game.

Arizona struck first in the second inning when Ransom smacked a two-run home run over the left-center field wall. Montero led off the frame with a walk prior to Ransom's one-out blast.

The Mets loaded the bases with no outs in the third on Tejada's leadoff single, Murphy's double and a walk to David Wright. After Lucas Duda was called out on strikes, Hairston laced a double to left field to score Tejada and Murphy.

Wright came home on a Davis groundout to second before Andres Torres' base hit to left plated Hairston to give New York a 4-2 lead.

Game Notes

Each member of the Mets came up to bat to a different Beastie Boys song in honor of New York native Adam "MCA" Yauch, who passed away earlier Friday...The Mets fell to 5-4 in the first game of a series this year...Wright increased his hit streak to 10 straight games and has now reached base safely in 22 of his 23 games this year...Arizona's Aaron Hill went 1-for-4 and has now reached base safely in 21 consecutive contests.

Daniel Hudson is injured, but Wade Miley is doing much more than just pick up the slack for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Miley looks to win a third consecutive start in place of Hudson as the visiting Diamondbacks open this three-game series against the slumping New York Mets on Friday night.

Hudson won 16 games last year and posted a 3.15 ERA after the All-Star break while helping Arizona (13-13) win its second NL West title in five years.

Losing the emerging star to a right shoulder injury after just three starts in 2012 was cause for concern, but Miley (3-0, 1.29 ERA) has stepped up in his absence.

The left-hander has won both starts since, yielding one unearned run and three hits with 13 strikeouts and three walks in 12 1-3 innings. His three previous outings came in relief.

Miley tossed another gem Sunday, carrying a no-hitter into the sixth before exiting with one out in the seventh after allowing that unearned run and one hit in an 8-4 win at Miami.

"Everything was working out for me," said Miley, who was named the NL rookie of the month Wednesday. "Any time you go out and establish the strike zone, you are going to have success. There's nothing like working fast and being able to throw strikes."

Miley won three starts in a row Aug. 24-Sept. 5, and will try to match that feat in his first meeting with the Mets (13-12).

Upsetting Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 26 - Mets at Phillies

NEW YORK - JUNE 10:  Ryan Howard #6 of the Phi...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Final Score: Philadelphia 10, New York 3

Ryan Howard belted two homers, including a grand slam, and knocked in six runs to carry the Phillies to a 10-3 rout of the Mets in the opener of a three-game series.

Howard's explosive bat backed a good outing by Vance Worley, who was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to replace injured No. 5 starter Joe Blanton.

Worley (1-0) yielded just two hits and four walks in six innings, striking out five Mets for his second career MLB win.

Howard moved into a tie for second place on the Phillies all-time home run list and set a team record with 27 RBI in April. Placido Polanco set a new franchise record with 39 hits in April, going 2-for-5 to break Chase Utley's mark of 38 set in 2008.

The Phillies (17-8) also set a club record for wins in April, matching the 1993 team that won the National League pennant.

Ike Davis hit a solo homer and Jason Pridie belted a two-run blast with one out in the ninth inning for New York's only runs. The Mets have lost two in a row on the heels of a six-game winning streak.

The Phillies, after beating Arizona on Wednesday to finish 5-2 on their road trip, started a nine-game homestand with a bang Friday.

The catalyst was Howard, who has three home runs in his last two games after going the previous 13 without one.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 26 - Mets at Phillies

Full House at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia...Image via Wikipedia
New York Mets (11-14) at Philadelphia Phillies (16-8), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Mike Pelfrey (1-2, 7.23) Philadelphia - Vance Worley (0-0, 0.00)

Injuries are starting to pile up for the heavily-favored Philadelphia Phillies and their pitching staff has been hit the hardest.

Joe Blanton is the latest victim to land on the disabled list, as he was slated to pitch Friday's opener of a three-game series versus the despised NL East-rival New York Mets at Citizens Bank Park. Instead, Blanton will head to the DL and Vance Worley will begin a nine-game homestand on the hill tonight.

Blanton is battling a right elbow problem and will join fellow hurlers Brad Lidge, Jose Contreras and J.C. Romero on the infirmary list. Starter Roy Oswalt has been given a leave of absence to deal with family issues involving disastrous storms in his hometown and catcher Carlos Ruiz is expected to miss some time too with a balky back. Worley, meanwhile, was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and went 2-2 with a 2.78 ERA in four starts for the Iron Pigs.

Worley, a right-hander, got his first taste of major league action last season when he compiled an 0-1 mark with a 1.38 earned run average in five games, two of which were starts. Worley faced the Mets in an inning of relief on Sept. 26 during a 7-3 loss and recorded a walk and a strikeout.

Phillies starters were amazing in a four-game sweep at San Diego, as Oswalt, Cole Hamels and Roy Halladay each came out victorious against the Padres. The buzz wore off in a three-game set at Arizona with Cliff Lee and Oswalt losing the first two tests of the series. Hamels avoided the sweep with a solid performance in Wednesday's 8-4 victory over the Diamondbacks and yielded three runs and four hits in seven innings with eight strikeouts and one walk.
