Happy Recap: Game 37 - Mets (9) at Yankees (7) - Mets Four HR Night, Duda's defense wins it for Mets


New York

New York

W: J. Mejia (4-0) L: M. Thornton (0-1) S: K. Farnsworth (3)
HR: NYM - T. d´Arnaud (3),C. Granderson (4),E. Young (1),C. Young (3)   NYY - B. Gardner (2)


Chris Young capped a three-run eighth inning with a tiebreaking two-run homer to send the New York Mets past the New York Yankees, 9-7, on Monday in the opener of their annual Subway Series.

The Mets trailed 7-4 after six innings before Eric Young, Jr. stroked a two- run homer in the seventh off Alfredo Aceves to get the visitors within one.

Lucas Duda laced an RBI single off Matt Thornton (0-1) in the eighth to tie the game, and after Preston Claiborne replaced Thornton on the mound, Chris Young clubbed Claiborne's second pitch into the seats in left for a 9-7 lead.

After striking out Alfonso Soriano to end the seventh, Jenrry Mejia (4-0), who was sent from the starting rotation to the bullpen earlier Monday, worked around a pair of singles in the eighth to maintain the Mets' margin.

Kyle Farnsworth entered for the Mets in the ninth and issued a leadoff walk to Derek Jeter and a one-out single to pinch-hitter Mark Teixeira that left runners on the corners.

However, Farnsworth was able to secure his third save of the season by getting Brian McCann to ground into a game-ending 3-5-3 double play.

Curtis Granderson returned to Yankee Stadium for the first time since signing with the Mets in the offseason and slugged a two-run homer, while Eric Young, Jr. finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored in the Mets' fifth straight win over their cross-town rivals.

Brett Gardner hit his second career grand slam in the setback, while Yangervis Solarte collected three hits, an RBI and two runs scored for the Yankees, who have lost three straight overall.

Jeter registered his first three-hit game since Sept. 30, 2012 in the loss.

The Mets manufactured a run in the first on David Wright's RBI groundout that scored Eric Young, Jr. for a 1-0 lead, but Gardner's grand slam in the second gave the home team control.

The Yankees started the second with three consecutive singles, including Alfonso Soriano's 1,000th career American League hit, making him just the seventh player in MLB history to compile 1,000 hits in each league.

Mets starter Bartolo Colon briefly slowed the hit parade by retiring the next two batters, but Gardner jumped on a first-pitch fastball and scorched it into the seats in right for a 4-1 lead.

Travis d'Arnaud smacked a one-out solo shot in the fifth to trim the margin to two before Granderson followed Wright's leadoff single in the sixth with a drive over the wall in right-center field to tie the game.

The Yankees answered with three runs in the home half, as Soriano stroked a ground-rule double before scoring on Solarte's single to right.

Kelly Johnson then sliced a triple into the gap in left-center field to score Solarte, but the Yankees first baseman was caught in a rundown between third and home when Brian Roberts followed with a grounder to short.

After Gardner extended the inning with a single to right, Carlos Torres took over on the mound for the Mets. With Jeter at the dish, Gardner took off for second and d'Arnaud's throw sailed into center field, allowing Roberts to race home for a 7-4 lead.

Aceves replaced Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda to start the seventh and walked d'Arnaud before Eric Young, Jr. smacked his first homer of the season two batters later to bring the Mets within 7-6.

Game Notes

With his 1,000th AL hit, Soriano became the first player in MLB history to accrue 1,000 hits, 500 runs, 500 RBI, 100 homers and 100 stolen bases in each league. Frank Robinson, Dave Winfield, Vladimir Guerrero, Fred McGriff, Orlando Cabrera and Carlos Lee are the other players with 1,000 hits in each league ... Granderson spent four seasons with the Yankees before signing with the Mets in the offseason ... The Mets homered in four straight innings for the first time since May 19, 2005 at Philadelphia ... Kuroda allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings ... Colon yielded seven runs -- six earned -- on 11 hits over 5 2/3 frames ... The Yankees entered the game 16-0 this season when leading after seven innings.

The Mets will try to extend their longest winning streak in series history Monday night when they face the Yankees in the 2014 Subway Series opener.

The Mets won all four meetings with the Yankees (19-17) last year, marking the first time they had ever won four straight in the series. The Yankees, who were held to one run in three of those losses, had previously won 11 of 14 meetings.

Granderson hit 115 home runs for the Yankees from 2010-13, the 13th-most in baseball during that span. He was a two-time All-Star with the Yankees, but alienated the fanbase by saying, "A lot of the people I've met in New York have always said that true New Yorkers are Mets fans," at his introductory press conference with the Mets after agreeing to a four-year deal worth $60 million.

Given Curtis Granderson's comments in the offseason, he's unlikely to receive a friendly welcome in his return to the Bronx.

Granderson has struggled with his new club, hitting .185 with three homers and 38 strikeouts in 35 games.

The Mets (17-19) had tallied nine runs during a five-game losing streak prior to Sunday's 5-4 win over Philadelphia in 11 innings.

Daniel Murphy hit a two-run homer in a three-run ninth inning to force extras, and Ruben Tejada drove in the winning run in the 11th with a bases-loaded single. Murphy has collected at least one hit in seven of eight while slugging .853 with 10 runs scored.

The Yankees have dropped two in a row and seven out of 11 following Sunday's 6-5 loss in Milwaukee. Mark Teixeira hit a tying homer with two outs in the ninth -- his sixth in 12 games -- but Mark Reynolds responded with an RBI single for the Brewers in the bottom half.

Girardi could especially use a good outing from Hiroki Kuroda (2-3, 4.43 ERA) considering the state of the rotation. CC Sabathia was placed on the disabled list Sunday, joining the already sidelined Ivan Nova and Michael Pineda.

Kuroda's winless streak reached four starts despite a strong performance Tuesday, when he struck out a season-high eight while limiting the Angels to three runs -- one earned -- and five hits over 7 2/3 innings in a 4-3 victory. Kuroda is 2/3 with a 2.50 ERA in six starts against the Mets since 2010.

Another former Yankee in Bartolo Colon (2-5, 5.36) will take the mound for the Mets. He gave up three runs in seven innings in Tuesday's 3-0 loss at Miami after yielding seven runs and 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings in a 7-4 loss at Colorado on May 1.

The veteran right-hander went 1-1 with a 2.38 ERA in two starts versus the Yankees last season with Oakland.

Derek Jeter is hitting .368 in 84 career games against the Mets -- his highest against a team he's faced at least 10 times. He's also 15 for 39 off Colon, though he's only had three at-bats against him since 2008.

David Wright, 16 for 41 during a nine-game hitting streak with six doubles, is 7 for 20 off Kuroda.

Pretty Sad Recap: Game 37 - Mets (2) at Cardinals (4) - Cards GO WILD on Mets

N.Y. Mets (14-23)000000200272
St. Louis (26-13)«00020011x460

W: S. Maness (3-0) L: S. Marcum (0-4) S: E. Mujica (11)
HR: NYM - R. Ankiel (6)   STL - None


Daniel Descalso scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the seventh inning to lift the St. Louis Cardinals past the New York Mets, 4-2, in the third of a four-game set at Busch Stadium.

With runners on the corners and two outs, reliever Scott Rice bounced a sinker past catcher John Buck, allowing Descalso to score from third.

Jon Jay, Tony Cruz and Yadier Molina had an RBI apiece for the Cardinals, who have taken the first three games of the series.

Seth Maness (3-0) earned the win despite giving up a two-run homer to Rick Ankiel in the seventh inning, and Edward Mujica picked up his 11th save of the season after spinning a perfect ninth.

Starter Shelby Miller worked 5 2/3 innings of scoreless ball, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out six. Miller, who had retired 27-straight hitters in his previous start, saw his streak reach 29 batters until giving up a single to David Wright in the first inning.

Shaun Marcum (0-4) was tagged for three runs -- two earned -- on five hits over 6 2/3 innings to absorb the loss.

The Cards scored a pair of runs in the fourth inning. With one on and two outs, Jay ripped a double to right field, scoring Matt Holliday. Cruz followed with a base hit to left to bring Jay around.

Ankiel's two-run shot in the seventh evened the score. Buck singled before Ankiel clubbed his sixth homer of the season -- and first with the Mets -- into the seats in left-center.

Game Notes

St. Louis will send Adam Wainwright to the mound Thursday as the Cardinals look to complete a four-game sweep. New York will counter with Jonathan Niese ... St. Louis was out-hit 7-6 ... The Mets went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position.

Shelby Miller has been a pleasant surprise for the St. Louis Cardinals this season and looks to build on his last start Wednesday in the third test of a four-game series versus the New York Mets.

In a 3-0 win over Colorado on Friday, the young Miller allowed a leadoff hit and settled down to retire the next 27 batters. The impressive performance was highlighted by 13 strikeouts and Miller notched the first shutout of his career, while improving to 5-2 in seven starts with a 1.58 earned run average.

"This was definitely the best game I've ever thrown," Miller said of his one- hitter. "This was a start I'll remember for the rest of my life."

Miller, a right-hander, seeks a repeat performance against a Mets team he has faced once in relief. He has allowed one run in his last two starts (15 innings) and is 2-1 in three home outings this season.

Cardinals hurler John Gast made his major league debut in Tuesday's 10-4 drubbing of the Mets, sending the visitors to their fifth straight loss. Gast did allow four runs and six hits in six innings, but benefited from a deluge of runs to win. Mets manager Terry Collins noticed Gast's potential.

"Obviously his command was outstanding with all his pitches," Collins said. "He worked both sides of the plate with his fastball, used his change-up very effectively."

Recap: Game 37 - Reds at Mets - Four run eighth dooms Mets

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

Cincinnati (19-17) «0010001406101
N.Y. Mets (20-17)001002000380

W: J. Arredondo (3-1) L: J. Rauch (3-2)
S: S. Marshall (7)
HR: CIN - T. Frazier (2),T. Frazier (3)   NYM - None

Todd Frazier homered twice, a solo shot and a two-run blast that capped a four-run eighth inning, as the Cincinnati Reds came back to down the New York Mets, 6-3, on Wednesday.

"I try to play guys in front of their home people. They play better, concentrate better," Reds manager Dusty Baker said of Frazier, who was born in New Jersey and had his family in attendance.

Cincinnati received six innings, as well as two hits and a run scored, from starter Mike Leake, while Jose Arredondo (3-1) pitched a perfect seventh for the win and Sean Marshall tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up his seventh save for the Reds, who have won three of four.

Jon Rauch (3-2) was charged with three runs in just a third of an inning to suffer the setback, as the Mets lost their third in four tries.

Rauch opened the eighth by giving up three straight hits, a pair of singles around a double, as Brandon Phillips brought home Drew Stubbs to tie the game. Tim Byrdak came in to pitch to pinch-hitter Jay Bruce, who eventually hit a long sacrifice fly.

D.J. Carrasco then entered and was greeted by Frazier, who launched Carrasco's first offering out to dead center field for a two-run shot.

"Left a slider over [the plate], too hittable of a pitch, and he drove it out of the yard," said Carrasco.

Earlier, Leake charged toward home on Zack Cozart's hit in the top of the third, sliding under Mike Nickeas' tag for the game's first run.

New York pulled into a tie a half inning later, when Lucas Duda plated Mike Baxter on a liner to left, and scored two sixth-inning runs, on an Ike Davis RBI double and Nickeas' suicide squeeze two batters later.

Frazier got the Reds within one in the seventh on an opposite-field blast into the right-field bullpen.

Game Notes

Mets starter Johan Santana, who has never lost against the Reds, allowed two runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings...The probables for Thursday's finale of this two-game set are Cincinnati's Mat Latos against R.A. Dickey.

Third-year right-hander Mike Leake tries again for a first win of 2012 tonight when the Cincinnati Reds head to Citi Field for the opener of a two-game series with the New York Mets.

Leake, one of the rare players to jump straight from college to the big leagues with no time in the minors, won 20 games over 53 appearances in his initial two seasons with the Reds after they drafted him eighth overall out of Arizona State in 2009.

He's not been able to regain that success in 2012, however, instead dropping five decisions in six starts while failing to go beyond five innings twice and getting past six innings just two more times.

Leake was rocked for six runs on seven hits in his most recent outing on May 11 while dropping a 7-3 decision to Washington.

Overall, in 31 2/3 innings, he's given up 25 earned runs on 40 hits, translating to a 7.11 earned run average.

In two career starts against the Mets, he's 0-1 with a 2.19 ERA.

For New York, lefty Johan Santana enters on a four-start unbeaten streak.

The 33-year-old Venezuelan, who's 63 games above .500 (134-71) in his major- league career, hasn't lost since a 9-3 drubbing at Atlanta on April 17.

Happy Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 37 - Mets at Rockies (Beltran Bombs Three -2-run shots))

Final Score: New York 9, Colorado 5

Carlos Beltran hit three two-run home runs to help the New York Mets take a 9-5 win over the Colorado Rockies in the rubber match of a three-game series at Coors Field.

Beltran became the eighth Met in club history to have a three-homer game, hitting them from both sides of the plate to help the Mets win for a fifth time in the past seven games.

"What a day he had," said Willie Harris, who was on base for each of Beltran's homers in the first, seventh and ninth innings.

Jose Reyes hit a two-run single while Jon Niese (2-4) got the win as he was charged with five runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Seth Smith drove in two runs for the Rockies, who have dropped six of seven. Ubaldo Jimenez (0-3) remained winless in six starts as he gave up five runs on three hits with six walks over just 3 2/3 innings.

"I had to find a way to get loose. It's really hard when it's cold and it's raining," said Jimenez.

This game was a makeup of Wednesday's postponement due to rain, and, after a two-hour, 10-minute delay to the start of this contest, Beltran began the show.

In the first, Harris drew a one-out walk and Beltran followed by clubbing a first-pitch fastball over the center field wall.

Colorado got one back in the bottom of the frame on Jonathan Herrera's solo shot to left.

The fourth inning saw the Mets add to their lead. With the bases loaded and no outs, Josh Thole lofted a sacrifice fly to center to score Jason Bay. Three batters later with the bases again loaded, Reyes punched a single to right to bring home two more for a 5-1 lead.

A solo home run from Todd Helton in the bottom of the fourth made it a 5-2 contest.

Beltran's second home run of the game came in the seventh inning. On the ninth pitch with a 2-2 count, he drilled a fastball to left for a 7-2 lead.

Colorado got to within striking distance in the seventh. A pinch-hit, RBI single from Alfredo Amezaga got one run across and left two men on base. After Mike O'Connor took the mound, Seth Smith hit a double to left-center that scored both runners to make it a 7-5 game.

The Rockies got runners to second and third with one out in the eighth. Jason Isringhausen, though, struck out Jose Morales and got Jason Giambi to fly out and end the inning.

Beltran smacked his third two-run shot of the game in the ninth for a 9-5 lead and Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 bottom portion of the inning to close out the contest.

"Those were three good at bats. To hit a home run to all fields from both sides, I've never seen anything like that," said Mets manager Terry Collins.

Game Notes

Reyes was the last Met to hit three home runs in a game. He did that on August 15, 2006 at Philadelphia...Both of Herrera's home runs this year have come against the Mets...Jimenez fell to 2-3 in six career starts versus the Mets...Niese is now 1-2 in five starts against the Rockies.

Preview : 2011 Regular Season - Game 37 - Mets at Rockies

New York Mets (16-20) at Colorado Rockies (19-15), 3:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Jon Niese (1-4, 4.71) Colorado - Ubaldo Jimenez (0-2, 5.88)

While Wednesday's postponement between Colorado and New York allowed players on both sides to get some much-needed rest, it also forced the Rockies to have to wait another day to try and get their game on track.

In danger of falling out of first place in the National League West for the first time in 37 days, Colorado tries to avoid a sixth loss in seven games in today's finale of a three-game set at Coors Field.

Thanks to an 11-2 start, the Rockies have held at least a share of first place in the division since April 6, but losses in five of six, as well as yesterday's unexpected day off, allowed the Giants to pull into a virtual tie with Colorado.
