Happy Recap: Game 46 - Dodgers (3) at Mets (5) - Lagares, Granderson, Wright Come Up Big for Mets


Los Angeles

New York

W: J. Niese (3-3) L: C. Perez (0-2) S: J. Mejia (2)
HR: LAD - J. Turner (1)   NYM - None


Juan Lagares' go-ahead RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning helped the New York Mets to a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the finale of a three-game set on Thursday.

Curtis Granderson added an RBI triple in the eighth, while David Wright posted two hits and a run scored for the Mets, who had dropped six of their last seven games coming into the contest.

Jon Niese (3-3) surrendered three runs on four hits and three walks over seven innings to notch the win. Jenrry Mejia fired a 1-2-3 ninth to record his second save of the season.

Dodgers starter Zack Greinke allowed three runs -- one earned -- on four hits and two walks over five frames, ending his streak of 21 straight starts of yielding two runs or fewer.

Justin Turner belted a two-run homer in defeat.

After the Dodgers tied the game at 3-3 in the top half of the seventh, the Mets went ahead with a run in the home half and added to their cushion after plating another in the eighth.

Wilmer Flores led off the seventh with a single into left-center against Chris Perez (0-2) and a wild pitch allowed him to move to second. Lagares then whacked a base hit into right to bring him home and give the Mets a 4-3 edge.

Rookie Eric Campbell, making his first career start in left field, made a sensational diving catch in the top of the eighth before doubling Yasiel Puig off second base to preserve New York's advantage.

Wright looped a base hit into right and Granderson followed by smacking a shot off the top of the wall that Matt Kemp overran in right-center to make it 5-3. Granderson was later thrown out at home with one away after Lucas Duda bounced one to Hanley Ramirez at shortstop.

Earlier, Adrian Gonzalez's sacrifice fly into left in the first opened the scoring for LA before Campbell's sac fly into right in the second tied the score at 1-1.

Later in the second, Puig made an outstanding backhanded diving catch on a sinking, slicing liner off the bat of Flores.

The Mets pushed across two more in the fifth.

Back-to-back one-out doubles by Anthony Recker and Niese brought home a run to put New York in front. Niese moved to third on Lagares groundout and then scored for a 3-1 Mets lead when Turner was unable to range to his left to handle a Daniel Murphy roller in the hole.

Turner, though, atoned for his mistake in the seventh by cracking his two-run blast into the seats in left to knot the contest.

Game Notes

The Mets were 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position, while LA finished 0- for-4 ... Perez was charged with two runs on four hits over his 1 1/3 innings of work.

Los Angeles Dodgers (25-22) at New York Mets (20-25)

Pitching Probables - Zack Greinke (7-1) 2.03 ERA vs Jon Niese (2-3) 2.54 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 7:10 PM


Zack Greinke takes the mound opposite Jon Niese as the visiting Dodgers go for a three-game sweep of the Mets on Thursday night.

Greinke (7-1, 2.03 ERA) has been superb through his first nine starts, striking out 61 and walking 12 over 53 1/3 innings. The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner pitched well again Friday, throwing eight innings of five-hit ball in a 7-0 win at Arizona.

Greinke has yielded two runs or fewer in 21 consecutive starts dating to last year, the longest such streak in the majors since at least 1914. He is 11-1 with a 1.86 ERA in his last 15 on the road.

Greinke hasn't faced New York (20-25) since scattering five hits over seven innings in an 8-0 road win with Milwaukee in 2012. He would appear to have another favorable matchup against a Mets team that's a major league-worst 5-14 this month.

New York has dropped three straight and six of seven after falling 4-3 on Wednesday. Adrian Gonzalez homered for the third straight game and Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez hit back-to-back shots for Los Angeles (25-22), which has taken 11 of 12 from the Mets by a combined 70-43 score.

The Dodgers finished with just five hits, but all went for extra bases.

Yasiel Puig, who collected three hits in Tuesday's 9-4 series-opening victory, is batting .408 with seven homers and 23 RBIs over the last 19 games. Gonzalez is 9 for 16 in the last four.

The Dodgers will try to stay hot against Niese (2-3, 2.54), who didn't have his best stuff in Friday's 5-2 loss at Washington. The left-hander yielded five runs -- three earned -- and eight hits over a season-low four innings.

Niese has gone 1-2 despite a 2.59 ERA in four home starts while receiving a combined five runs of support. He is 1-0 with a 4.09 ERA in four outings versus Los Angeles.

Niese has held Juan Uribe hitless in 11 at-bats in their matchups, but he won't face the third baseman. Uribe, batting .303 with four homers and 18 RBIs, was put on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained hamstring.

Going to be tough as the Mets have to face the Dodgers best pitcher right now. Time for the Mets to turn it around, avoid the sweep and get it going in a positive direction. LGM!

Recap: Game 46 - Braves (6) at Mets (0) - Mets get Blanked by Minor

Atlanta (30-18)«0000501006110
N.Y. Mets (17-29)000000000060

W: M. Minor (6-2) L: D. Gee (2-6)
HR: ATL - M. Minor (1)   NYM - None


Mike Minor was outstanding on the mound and had a pretty good day inside the batter's box, too.

The lefty spun 7 1/3 innings of three-hit ball and belted his first career home run among his two hits, as the Atlanta Braves shut out the New York Mets, 6-0, in the middle test of a three-game set from Citi Field.

Minor (6-2) recorded his third straight victory in style, hitting double digits in strikeouts while adding a two-run homer to begin a five-run fifth inning.

He struck out 10 batters, just his second time reaching double digits and first since his rookie season.

After finishing off Friday's rain-suspended contest earlier Saturday with a 7-5 win in 10 innings, the Braves pounded Dillon Gee (2-6) for five runs during the game-breaking fifth en route to the club's eighth straight win.

Atlanta scored all six of its runs with two out. Freddie Freeman collected a pair of RBI singles, Justin Upton had two hits and knocked in a run, while Jason Heyward scored twice and had an RBI in the victory.

New York, shut out for the second time during the week, received half of its six hits from Ruben Tejada. The Mets lost to the Reds, 4-0, on Tuesday and have dropped five straight and six of their last seven contests.

Minor struck out five over the first four innings and then helped his own cause by plating the Braves' first runs with his shot over the left-field wall.

"I knew it was gone I guess, just wanted it to stay fair. That was the first ball I hit all year that was barreled-up. It was all a blur really," Minor said.

The blast sparked Atlanta's offense, which only had two hits through the first four innings, and it went on to produce three more runs in the fifth. Gee surrendered six straight hits, all with two out.

Andrelton Simmons doubled and scored on a single from Heyward, Upton laced an RBI double into left and Freeman capped the inning with a run scoring-base hit into right to provide the Braves with a 5-0 lead.

Minor made the lead stand from there, retiring 10 of the last 13 batters he faced. He walked two and hit one batter in the outing.

Freeman extended the margin to six in the seventh with a grounder up the middle to plate Heyward, who drew a two-out walk and moved up on a Justin Upton dribbler.

New York put two runners on in the ninth, but pinch-hitter Ike Davis struck out -- the 15th time he's done so in the last 10 games -- and Jordany Valdespin grounded out to end the game.

"Every day I go in there trying to do something. You have different plans. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. You just really have to find what works and keep working on it," Davis said of his hitting woes.

Game Notes

David Carpenter pitched the last 1 2/3 innings for the Braves. He allowed three hits and struck out two ... New York's David Wright struck out three times ... Simmons had two hits for Atlanta ... The Mets were 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position.

The Atlanta Braves and New York Mets know that they will play at least 10 innings of baseball on Saturday night. But with the clubs set to complete a tied suspended contest before beginning the second of a three- game weekend series, it is shaping up to be a long night at Citi Field for the two teams.

Rain forced the suspension of last night's opener with the score tied at 5-5 heading into the ninth inning. The Braves took a two-run lead on Evan Gattis' pinch-hit single that plated a pair of runs in the top of the eighth, but the Mets rallied through ugly conditions to even the game in the bottom of the frame.

With two outs and runners on first and second, New York's Daniel Murphy laced his third hit of the game, a single into center to score John Buck.

B.J. Upton committed a fielding error on the play, which allowed Ruben Tejada to advance to third. The blunder proved costly as the Mets brought the tying run home when reliever Anthony Varvaro's pitch skipped past his catcher. Tejada raced to the plate and just beat the throw to make it 5-5.

After Rick Ankiel struck out to end the inning, the game was delayed for 76 minutes before being postponed. It will resume at 6:10 p.m. (ET) followed by the regularly-scheduled game at 7:15 p.m. or 30 minutes after the end of the suspended game.

"I don't know if it's going to hurt," manager Terry Collins said on the Mets' website of his team's momentum. "It all depends on (Saturday), the outcome. If this first game goes 15 innings, we're going to be in trouble. So will they."

The Braves have a six-game winning streak on the line, while the Mets are looking to win for just the fourth time in their past 14 games.

Once the first game is completed, Mike Minor will try to stay unbeaten in five straight starts as he takes the hill for the Braves in the second game.

Happy Recap: Game 46 - Padres at Mets - Gee K's Nine in Mets win

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

San Diego (17-30)100000000140
N.Y. Mets (25-21) «01203000x680

W: D. Gee (4-3) L: A. Bass (2-5)
HR: SD - None   NYM - L. Duda (5)

Dillon Gee tossed seven innings of one-run ball to lead the New York Mets past the San Diego Padres, 6-1, in the second installment of a four-game series at Citi Field.

Gee (4-3) scattered four hits and three walks while striking out a career-high nine batters in New York's fourth win in six games.

"Strikeouts a lot of time are just a matter of luck," Gee said. "Obviously you make some good pitches you get some strikeouts. Nine for me, that's a lot. It's just one of those nights I guess where they're missing some good pitches."

Lucas Duda had a home run and scored twice, and Ike Davis added two RBI for the Mets.

Anthony Bass (2-5) allowed six runs on eight hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings to suffer the loss.

Jesus Guzman knocked in the lone run for the Padres, who dropped their fourth decision in five games.

The Padres jumped out to the early advantage when Will Venable opened the game with a walk, moved to third on Yonder Alonso's bloop single and came home on Guzman's sacrifice fly to left field.

But New York answered in the second inning with Duda's leadoff blast off the base of the upper deck in right field and then took the lead in the third on back-to-back one-out doubles by Gee and Mike Baxter.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis followed with a base hit to right to plate Baxter and give the Mets a 3-1 edge.

After San Diego failed to cut into its deficit by stranding a man on second in the top of the fifth inning, the Mets added to their lead in the bottom of the frame. Nieuwenhuis singled, advanced to second on a wild pitch, moved to third on David Wright's fly out to center field and came home on a Daniel Murphy double into the left-field corner.

Duda, who walked prior to Murphy's two-bagger, and Murphy both came home when the next batter on Davis singled to center field, stretching the Mets' advantage to 6-1.

"As the game went on, a couple of balls that were left over the plate, they capitalized," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Conversely, we had some guys on base and couldn't capitalize."

Gee then stranded a man on second in the seventh inning before Time Byrdak and Ramon Ramirez each faced the minimum in an inning of relief to close out the game for New York.

Game Notes

The Mets selected the contract of pitcher Jack Egbert from Triple-A Buffalo, optioned pitcher Robert Carson to Double-A Binghamton and released pitcher D.J. Carrasco earlier Friday...Gee improved to 2-0 in two career starts against San Diego...Bass made his first career start against the Mets and has no decisions in four relief appearances against the club...New York upped its home record to 13-9 while the Padres fell to 5-14 on the road this season.

Pelfrey has pitched good in May, and his last 2 starts have been better most of previous. The Mets need Pelfrey to pitch smart and work his sinker into his game plan. Pelfrey has to watch his pitches against A-Rod , Martin, Gardner, Swisher, who are in his hot zone. The rest of the team including Derek Jeter has had it's problems with MP.

The Yanks are hitting a even .300 against Pelfrey over his career, now we just have to wait and see which Pelfrey comes to Yankee Stadium. Will the real Mike Pelfrey please stand...

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 46 - Mets at Yankees (Subway Series)

NY Mets (22-23) at NY Yankees (24-20), 1:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Mets - Mike Pelfrey (3-3, 5.11) NY Yankees - Ivan Nova (4-3, 4.33)

After hitting four home runs, it looks like the Yankees may have their swagger back at home. That isn't good news for a Mets club that is still looking for a rare series victory in the Bronx.

The two New York clubs square off this afternoon in the rubber match of their Subway Series at Yankee Stadium.

After the Mets were able to edge out the Yankees by a run to win Friday's opener, the Bronx Bombers got homers from Russell Martin, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez in taking Saturday's meeting, 7-3.

The victory, the Yanks' fourth in five games overall, also halted their six- game home losing streak that was their second-longest in the Bronx in 21 years.

The power display took the pressure off starter A.J. Burnett, who got the win after yielding three runs -- two in the first inning -- on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

"He was in a rough spot and he got away with only two runs," said his catcher Martin. "That was big. And then from there on he battled, got ahead of hitters and just competed the whole game."

Derek Jeter had a pair of hits and also stole his 326th career base, tying him with Rickey Henderson for the most in club history. He also moved to within 27 hits of 3,000 for his career, while the Yankees pulled into a virtual tie with the Rays for first place in the American League East.

The Mets also saw some club records fall with Saturday's loss. Justin Turner drove in a run for a seventh straight game, breaking the franchise rookie record he had shared with Ron Svoboda, who put together his six-game streak from Aug. 22-26, 1965. Also, Pedro Beato threw 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief, giving him 18 2/3 frames without allowing a run to begin his career. That surpassed Jack DiLauro's 1969 team mark of 17 2/3 scoreless innings to begin a career.

Jose Reyes added three hits and scored twice on Saturday, but starter Chris Capuano gave up all four homers over his 5 1/3-inning start.
