Happy Recap: Game 30 - Mets (5) at Rockies (1) - Gee Solid for 6+ Innings, Avoid Rockies Sweep


New York


W: D. Gee (3-1) L: J. Chacin (0-1)
HR: NYM - None   COL - J. Morneau (7)


Dillon Gee held the Rockies scoreless over six-plus innings, leading the New York Mets to a 5-1 victory over Colorado to avoid a four-game sweep.

Gee (3-1) fanned five and walked one while allowing six hits for the Mets, who snapped a three-game skid.

Juan Lagares had three hits and two runs scored and Daniel Murphy and Chris Young each had a pair of hits and an RBI. David Wright, Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda drove in a run apiece.

Justin Morneau provided the Rockies' only run with a homer, and in a disappointing season debut, starter Jhoulys Chacin (0-1) allowed four runs on eight hits, while walking five through five frames.

Granderson opened the scoring for the Mets with an RBI single in the first. Lagares and Murphy hit back-to-back singles to start the inning and after a flyout by Wright, Granderson knocked in Lagares.

New York added two more in the third with a pair of RBI doubles. Murphy walked with one-out and Wright blasted a double off the wall in left-center to plate him. Then, Granderson was walked and driven in on Young's double down the left field line.

The Mets extended their lead to 4-0 in the fourth. With two outs, Lagares and Murphy hit back-to-back doubles, with the latter bringing a run home.

In the seventh, Duda drove in Young with a double. Young was walked on four pitches with one-out before Duda poked a first pitch fastball into left- center.

Trailing 5-0, Morneau went down and lifted a 2-2 slider just over the left field wall to leadoff the ninth.

Game Notes

Nolan Arenado extended his hitting streak to 24 games. He passed Dante Bichette for sole possession of second place for the Rockies' club record hitting streak. He now trails Michael Cuddyer's 27-game streak ... Lagares extended his hitting streak to 13 games.

The New York Mets (15-14) look to avoid a four-game sweep while sending Dillon Gee to the Coors Field mound Sunday.

Colorado (19-13) fell behind by six runs early and was shut out through four innings Saturday, but an eight-run fifth -- highlighted by Nolan Arenado's grand slam -- helped set the stage for pinch-hitter Charlie Culberson's two-run, walk-off homer in the ninth for an 11-10 victory.

Troy Tulowitzki led off the final inning with a single and finished 3 for 4 with three runs. His seventh-inning single marked his 1,000th career hit, helping increase his average to a majors-best .400.

Arenado is hitting .355 during a 23-game hitting streak, which ties Dante Bichette for the second longest in franchise history. The Rockies have won six of seven and have scored 28 of their league-most 185 runs in the series. They also lead the majors with a .300 average.

Colorado has won six of the last seven home meetings with the Mets (15-14), who briefly regained the lead in the ninth when Juan Lagares' RBI single extended his hitting streak to 12. New York had won seven of nine entering this series.

Three straight Mets starters have failed to pitch five full innings, but Gee (2-1, 2.88 ERA) will look to help slow the Rockies' offense after giving up three hits and striking out six through eight innings of a 4-0 win over Miami last Sunday.

Gee has a 0.86 ERA over his last three starts after posting a 5.03 mark over his first three.

The right-hander is 2-1 with a 4.19 ERA in three starts against the Rockies, but he gave up one run in 7 2/3 innings of a 2-1 home victory the last time he faced them Aug. 8.

Carlos Gonzalez is 3 for 4 with a homer and a triple against Gee, and he returned to the lineup Saturday after missing one contest with an injury to his left index finger.

With Tyler Chatwood heading back to the disabled list with a right elbow strain, manager Walt Weiss said Jhoulys Chacin will come off the DL to make his season debut in this contest.

Chacin went 1-1 with a 2.53 ERA in 10 2/3 innings during his rehab stint in Triple-A and appears ready to go. The right-hander, who went 14-10 with a 3.47 ERA in 31 starts last season, is 1-1 with a 1.89 ERA in three starts against the Mets.

Recap: Game 30 - White Sox (6) at Mets (3) - Peavy Pevails over Hefner

Chi. White Sox (14-18)«1030001016131
N.Y. Mets (13-17)010000011381

W: J. Peavy (4-1) L: J. Hefner (0-4)
HR: CHW - A. De Aza (6),A. Rios (8)   NYM - L. Duda (7)

Jake Peavy was outstanding in his first start in nearly two weeks and the White Sox' bats awoke in a 6-3 victory over the New York Mets, helping them earn a split of a two-game set at Citi Field.

Chicago posted 13 hits and scored one fewer run than its total over the previous four games. Alejandro De Aza and Alex Rios each belted a solo homer among their three hits and combined to score five runs for the White Sox, who had lost three of four coming in.

Peavy (4-1) didn't appear to have any issue with the back spasms that forced him to miss his previous two scheduled starts. The right-hander fired 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball, allowing just three hits and striking out six.

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair in the victory.

Jeremy Hefner (0-4) was roughed up early for New York, with all four of his runs allowed coming in the first three innings. He gave up eight hits and struck out five over six frames.

"If he continues to pitch the way he has the last three starts, we're going to be okay," said Mets manager Terry Collins.

Hefner has given up seven runs over his last 21 innings of work. The Mets have not won in any of his six starts this season.

The Mets managed just three hits in the first seven innings before plating a pair of runs over the final two frames. Lucas Duda hit a solo homer and Ruben Tejada recorded an RBI in defeat.

The White Sox failed to record a hit until the seventh inning on Tuesday, but got off to a good start Wednesday when De Aza led off the game with a homer, his sixth of the season.

Duda lifted a game-tying homer into right in the second, but New York's bats went silent from there and the White Sox jumped back in front in the top half of the third.

De Aza and Alexei Ramirez reached Hefner for one-out singles and Rios doubled into right center to plate a run. With runners on second and third, Gillaspie made it 4-1 when his soft fly ball landed in between shortstop Tejada and center fielder Jordany Valdespin for a double.

Peavy was aided by some strong defense, as Dewayne Wise slammed into the wall in center after chasing down a deep fly from Ike Davis in the second and Ramirez made a diving stop at short to turn a double play two innings later.

The Mets recorded just their second hit of the game when pinch-hitter Marlon Byrd ripped a leadoff double down the left field line in the sixth, but Peavy retired the next three batters in order to keep New York from scoring.

Three straight singles from Chicago in the seventh pushed its lead to 5-1, with Paul Konerko driving a base hit into right off Scott Atchison to score Rios.

The Mets scored a run in the eighth after Justin Turner's pinch-hit single into right was mishandled by Rios, but were stifled by Jesse Crain, who replaced Matt Thornton on the mound and recorded three outs via strikeout.

Rios made up for his blunder in the ninth, clubbing a solo homer off Mets reliever Jeurys Familia into the left field seats.

Mike Baxter drove a one-out triple into center in the ninth off White Sox reliever Addison Reed and scored on Tejada's base hit into right.

Juan Lagares came to the plate with two on following a hit from Turner, but struck out to end the game.

Game Notes

New York fell to 8-9 at home this season ... The Mets were 2-for-8 with runners in scoring position ... Rios' homer was his eighth of the season ... The Mets are 12-4 against members of the AL Central since 2010.

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy is back after missing a turn in the rotation and looks to pitch his club past the New York Mets Wednesday in the conclusion of a two-game series from Citi Field.

Peavy last took the mound April 26 in a 5-4 win over Tampa Bay and missed his next scheduled start because of a back issue. The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner tested his back a few days ago by throwing off a mound and said he is ready to roll Wednesday in New York.

"We're all on point to go Wednesday night," Peavy said. "I'm super excited about that, and can't thank our training staff enough. A few days ago, I didn't feel good at all."

The right-hander worked with a chiropractor and a massage therapist to get himself back on track and is 3-1 with a 3.38 earned run average in five starts this season. He allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings against the Rays and will make his third road start Thursday.

In 10 career starts against the Mets, Peavy is 5-2 with a 3.48 ERA.

Countering for New York will be winless right-hander Jeremy Hefner. Hefner is 0-3 with a 4.34 earned run average in six games (5 starts) this season and was in line for his first win on April 30 at Miami. He was cruising through eight innings until the Marlins rallied in the bottom of the ninth for a 2-1 win.

The right-hander struck out three and allowed just two runs on seven hits, improving to 4-1 during spring training play.

New York starter Jeremy Hefner pitched three innings before a Carlos Beltran comebacker struck him on the elbow, forcing him from the game. He allowed two runs on five hits.

Lucas Duda was a productive 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and four RBI in the setback.

Subtract a hiccup in Houston last week and the New York Mets are one of the hottest clubs in the major leagues.

The Mets are still playing good baseball despite a three-game sweep at the hands of Houston last week, and will shoot for their fourth straight win tonight against the NL East-rival Philadelphia Phillies in the second portion of a three-game series from Citizens Bank Park.

New York rallied for a 5-2 win in Monday's series opener thanks to pinch- hitter Jordany Valdespin's go-ahead three-run homer with two outs in the top of the ninth inning off of Phillies high-priced closer Jonathan Papelbon. David Wright tied the game at 2-2 with a two-run double in the sixth inning off of Phillies ace Roy Halladay.

"To come back against Roy [Halladay] and tie the game up, then to finish the game with two guys that weren't even in the game with huge hits, great win for us," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Mike Nickeas kept the Mets alive with a double to move Ike Davis, who walked, to third base. Valdespin followed with his first major league hit. The Mets have won three in a row and eight of 13 games, and will also visit Miami on this six-game road trip. The Mets have prevailed in six of the last eight matchups with the Phillies.

Miguel Batista will try to pitch New York to another series win over the Phillies when he takes the mound Tuesday. Batista has made one start in 10 appearances this season and is taking over in the rotation for Mike Pelfrey. Batista is 0-1 with a 6.92 earned run average over 13 innings pitched and his only decision came on April 23 in a 6-1 setback to San Francisco.

Batista allowed six runs and eight hits in a season-high 3 2/3 innings. The right-hander faced Philadelphia in an 8-2 loss on April 15 and was reached for a run and two hits in just one-third of an inning. Batista is 3-3 with a 4.42 ERA in 26 career games (8 starts) against the Phillies.

Meanwhile, Papelbon was dealt the loss -- his first with the Phils -- and Halladay's night was finished after seven innings and two runs earned. He struck out seven Mets and walked just one.

"He might have been a little rusty," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said of his closer, who hadn't pitched since last Tuesday in Atlanta.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 30 - Giants at Mets

San Francisco Giants (14-15) at New York Mets (12-17), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: San Francisco - Tim Lincecum (2-3, 2.90) New York - Chris Capuano (2-2, 6.04)

It has been over two years since Giants ace Tim Lincecum has had a losing record. San Francisco hopes that the former National League Cy Young Award winner can respond in similar fashion to the last occurrence.

Lincecum looks to snap a two-start slide this evening in the middle portion of a three-game series with the New York Mets at Citi Field.

Consecutive losses have dropped Lincecum to 2-3 on the season despite a solid 2.90 earned run average. However, he has allowed eight runs over his mini- slide, yielding five on six hits and six walks in 6 1/3 innings versus Atlanta on April 23. The right-hander then yielded three runs over seven innings at Washington on Friday, but got no support in a 3-0 loss.

"I threw too many strikes with two-strike counts," Lincecum told San Francisco's official website. "I gave them too many good pitches to hit when I got ahead."

Lincecum, who will pass Christy Mathewson (28) for the most double-digit strikeout games in team history the next time he fans at least 10 in a game, hasn't had a losing record since he was 0-1 on April 12, 2009. After a no- decision next time out, the 26-year-old ripped off six straight winning decisions on the way to capturing the second of back-to-back NL Cy Young Awards.

He'll look to start a similar streak tonight against the Mets, who he is 1-1 with a 3.71 ERA in five starts against.
