W: W. Rodriguez (3-2) L: S. Marcum (0-3) S: J. Grilli (14)
HR: PIT - G. Jones (5)   NYM - A. Recker (1),J. Valdespin (3)

Garrett Jones hit a three-run homer to help the Pittsburgh Pirates defeat the New York Mets, 7-3, in the second game of a four-game set.

Pedro Alvarez and Starling Marte had an RBI apiece for the Pirates, who have evened the series.

Pittsburgh starter Wandy Rodriguez (3-2) was effective, limiting the Mets to just one run on six hits over six frames. He also contributed with the bat, driving in one run in the victory. Jason Grilli got the final out of the game to notch his 14th save.

Shaun Marcum (0-3) got the start for the Mets and gave up six runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings. Anthony Recker, Jordany Valdespin and Andrew Brown each drove in one run in the setback.

The Pirates scored three runs in the second. Jones doubled to lead off the inning, followed by back-to-back singles by Jose Tabata and Alvarez, who scored Jones. Marcum then allowed a double by Michael McKenry and hit John McDonald with a pitch, loading the bases. Rodriguez grounded towards Marcum, but brought Alvarez home. Next was Marte, who plated McKenry with an infield single.

Marte was hit by a pitch to begin the fifth, followed by a single by Jordy Mercer, setting up Jones' three-run blast.

Recker's homer started the home fifth, putting the Mets on the board, but Pittsburgh added an insurance run in the ninth. Gaby Sanchez drew a walk to start the inning, Marte singled and Mercer walked to load the bases. Sanchez scored when Andrew McCutchen grounded into a double play.

Jose Contreras gave up a solo home run to Valdespin and an Andrew Brown RBI single in the bottom of the ninth. Grilli came on to replace Contreras and got Ruben Tejada to fly out with runners on first and second to end the game.

Game Notes

McCutchen was 0-for-5 ... The Mets were 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position.

Wandy Rodriguez tries to put the brakes on a personal two- game losing streak on Friday when the Pittsburgh Pirates continue their four- game series against the New York Mets at Citi Field.

After getting hammered by Milwaukee two starts ago, Rodriguez was better his last time out against Washington, but was still charged with the loss. Rodriguez gave up three runs and six hits in six innings of that one and fell to 2-2 on the year to go along with a 4.02 ERA.

He had been hammered for seven runs in just 3 2/3 frames in his previous start versus the Brewers.

Rodriguez could get himself right on Friday, though, as he owns a 5-2 lifetime mark against the Mets with a 2.88 ERA in nine starts. Also, the Mets are hitting a mere .192 over their last nine games against left-handed starters.

Not So Happy Recap: Game 32 - Mets at Marlins - Mets lose in 9th to Marlins

Marlins Park (Miami, FL)

N.Y. Mets (18-14)0000101305111
Miami (17-15) «3000000126100

W: H. Bell (1-3) L: F. Francisco (1-2)
HR: NYM - I. Davis (5)   MIA - A. Kearns (3)

Greg Dobbs' RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Miami Marlins over the New York Mets, 6-5, in the opener of a three-game series.

Down 5-4, Giancarlo Stanton started the home ninth with a double to left- center field off Frank Francisco (1-2). Stanton moved to third when Gaby Sanchez flied out and crossed the plate on Emilio Bonifacio's RBI single to right. Bonifacio then stole second and scored the game-winning run on Dobbs' two-out bloop single to right.

"There is nothing to describe that kind of feeling, when you can have one swing of the bat, and a little bloop hit brings 31,000 people to their feet and makes them scream and clap," Dobbs said. "You feel the love, you feel the happiness in the building. It's special. It's extremely special."

Austin Kearns hit a two-run homer for Miami, which was coming off a franchise- best road trip in which it went 8-1 with sweeps of San Francisco and San Diego. Omar Infante went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.
Heath Bell (1-3) pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up his first win in a Marlins uniform.

Mike Baxter had two RBI for the Mets, who had a five-game winning streak snapped. Ike Davis added a solo homer and Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Mike Nickeas each knocked in a run.

"You only can control where you throw the ball," Francisco said of Dobbs' game-winning hit. "You cannot control the results. I thought I made a good pitch. I jammed him. But it ended up in the right spot."

The Marlins put three runs on the board in the first inning. Jose Reyes led off with a triple past the outstretched glove of center fielder Andres Torres. Infante followed with an RBI single to shallow left field. Infante then stole second and scored on Kearns' one-out homer to left.

Davis' homer to right in the fifth made it a 3-1 game.

The Mets tacked on another run in the seventh. Ronny Cedeno hit a one-out single and raced home on Nickeas' double to left-center field. After Torres walked to put men on first and second with two outs, Randy Choate took over on the mound. He got Daniel Murphy swinging to keep it 3-2.

New York added three more runs in the eighth to take the lead. Edward Mujica gave up doubles to David Wright and pinch-hitter Nieuwenhuis, which allowed the tying run to cross the plate. Davis and Cedeno followed with walks to load the bases with one out. Ryan Webb came in from the bullpen and pinch-hitter Baxter greeted him with a two-run double to left-center field.

Miami got one run back in the bottom half of the frame. With Bobby Parnell on the mound, Reyes reached first on first baseman Davis' fielding error. Infante followed with an RBI double to right-center field. Hanley Ramirez flied out for the second out of the inning. Tim Byrdak then came in from the bullpen and got pinch-hitter Logan Morrison swinging to keep it a 5-4 game.

Preview: Game 32 - Mets at Marlins - Santana looks to make it six in a row

New York Mets (18-13) at Miami Marlins (16-15) 7:10 PM ET
SeasonRd/HmLast StartLast 3 App
J. Santana (L) 6 1-2 2.616.10-14.915/5ARIW7.0931-019.21.83
M. Buehrle (L) 6 2-4 2.836.21-13.465/5@SDW9.0511-221.03.00

The Miami Marlins are feeling confident following an impressive road trip, but that may be short-lived if they can't find a way to solve Johan Santana and the New York Mets.

Miami looks to snap a five-game losing streak to the surging Mets on Friday night when it faces Santana, who has dominated the Marlins throughout his career.

Miami (16-15) went 8-1 on a trip that ended a 5-3, 12-inning victory over Houston on Wednesday. Omar Infante drove in two runs on a bases-loaded single in the 12th after Steve Cishek blew the save in the ninth.

"We got the win, that's all that matters," starter Josh Johnson told the Marlins' official website after going seven innings. "It was an unbelievable road trip. ... Maybe we can go back home and start something there and keep winning ball games."

Despite the outstanding road swing, the closer problem follows the Marlins home, though Heath Bell pitched a scoreless 10th inning Wednesday. Bell was demoted from the spot after blowing four saves in seven chances.

"I want to see him throw the ball the way he did today with confidence," manager Ozzie Guillen said. "I believe we're a better ball club with him as a closer."

Miami, 6-5 at home, could see its momentum come to a quick halt if it can't change its fortunes against Santana and the Mets (18-13).

Santana (1-2, 2.61 ERA) has posted a 1.83 ERA in his last three starts - all Mets wins - and is coming off his first victory since Sept. 2, 2010, before shoulder surgery kept him out last season. He's been even more effective against the Marlins in his career, going 6-1 with a 1.46 ERA in 10 starts, including an 0.84 ERA in the last six.

The left-hander faced the Marlins for the first time in nearly two years April 24, giving up one run and striking out 11 in 6 2-3 innings of a 2-1 home victory.

Happy Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 32 - Dodgers at Mets (PRIDIE TO THE RESCUE)

Final Score: New York 6, Los Angeles 3

Jason Pridie put the Mets in front with a three-run homer off Hiroki Kuroda in the sixth inning, and New York held on for a 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the opener of a three-game set.

Despite their fifth loss in six games, the Dodgers did have a bright spot as Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 30 games. Ethier, who has been dealing with elbow inflammation, went 3-for-5 to move within one game of Willie Davis' club record.

"It's neat, but it's not helping snap this little skid we're on," Ethier said of the streak. "It's a nice personal thing, but besides that we need to start figuring out ways to get this thing going."

The Mets earned back-to-back wins behind Pridie's blast, as well as three extra-base hits from Jose Reyes.

Ryota Igarashi (2-0) got the win in relief behind Jon Niese, who gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings.

Kuroda (3-3) was staked to a 3-2 lead on Juan Uribe's RBI groundout in the fifth inning.

But with a runner on second and two outs in the sixth, Kuroda opted to intentionally walk Ike Davis, who homered off him earlier in the game.

Los Angeles Dodgers (15-17) at New York Mets (13-18), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Los Angeles - Hiroki Kuroda (3-2, 3.10) New York - Jon Niese (1-4, 4.71)

The Los Angeles Dodgers hope that Andre Ethier will be able to resume his quest for a 30-game hitting streak this evening when they open a three-game series against the New York Mets at Citi Field.

Ethier was a late scratch in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Cubs because of elbow inflammation. Because he did not appear at all in the game, his 29-game hitting streak remains intact and he hopes to return to action tonight.

"It's just sore. It's been sore the last couple of days," Ethier said. "It's more tender on the throwing than hitting. [Tuesday night] it was sore after the game."

Ethier is hitting .387 (43-for-111) over his hitting streak, which has tied Zack Wheat (1916) for the second-longest in club history. Willie Davis owns the club mark with a 31-game run during the 1969 season.
