Happy Recap: Game 47 - Braves (2) at Mets (4) - Ike Davis single the difference

Atlanta (30-19)000000200251
N.Y. Mets (18-29)«00010003x491

W: L. Hawkins (1-0) L: C. Gearrin (1-1) S: B. Parnell (7)
HR: ATL - D. Uggla (10)   NYM - L. Duda (9)


Ike Davis' two-run single in the eighth inning lifted the New York Mets past the Atlanta Braves, 4-2, in the finale of a three-game set at Citi Field.

After Justin Turner opened the Mets' half of the eighth with a base hit and David Wright struck out, Lucas Duda hit a ground-rule double down the line in left to put two on with one out. John Buck followed with a base hit to bring Turner around and reliever Cory Gearrin (1-1) hit Mike Baxter with a pitch to load the bases.

Davis, who entered the contest with just two hits over his last 44 at-bats, then smoked a single to right field to push two runs across and break a 2-2 tie.

"They wanted me to have fun again. Smile more, laugh on the field," Davis said. "And I am now 1-for-1 with the new approach."

Davis finished the game with two hits and Duda went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored for the Mets, who put the brakes on a five-game skid.

LaTroy Hawkins (1-0) earned the win after tossing a scoreless top of the eighth inning. Bobby Parnell hurled a perfect ninth to pick up his seventh save of the season.

Dan Uggla hit a two-run homer for the Braves, who had their eight-game winning streak snapped.

The contest had all the makings of a pitchers duel as the Braves' Julio Teheran and the Mets' Shaun Marcum navigated through the opposing lineups with relative ease.

"Marcum really knows how to pitch -- every aspect of the word pitching. He's very patient. He knows his strengths, knows his weaknesses, and he had just unbelievable command," Uggla said of Marcum.

Teheran made his first mistake of the game in the fourth inning as he served up a leadoff homer to Duda. It was New York's first hit of the game. The right-hander settled down from there, allowing just three base runners until he was replaced by Luis Avilan with two outs in the seventh.

Marcum, who has been struggling all season, was nearly lights out until surrendering a two-run blast to Uggla in the seventh inning that let Atlanta take the lead.

The right-hander was able to get escape the inning without anymore damage. Over seven frames, Marcum gave up just four hits and struckout a career-high 12 batters without issuing a walk.

Game Notes

Marcum (0-5) remains winless on the season. His last victory came Oct. 1 2012 against the San Diego Padres ... Marcum, who didn't make it through five innings in his first three starts of the season, has gone at least six innings in each of last three starts ... Atlanta has 65 homers through 49 games this season.

Mike Minor helped the Atlanta Braves extend their winning streak to eight straight games with his arm and his bat on Saturday night.

The National League East leaders will settle for Julio Teheran simply continuing his recent success on the mound as they go for a three-game sweep on Sunday of the New York Mets.

Formerly ranked as one of top prospects in baseball, Teheran had a 7.31 earned run average over his first three starts, but has gone 3-1 in his last five outings while not allowing more than three earned runs in any of those games.

The 22-year-old turned in a gem on Monday versus Minnesota, logging a season- high 8 1/3 innings. He carried a shutout into the ninth frame and had retired eight in a row before giving up a solo homer to Josh Willingham.

"I knew I was throwing a shutout, and I wanted to get it," Teheran, who hurled 123 pitches, told Atlanta's website. "When they saw my face and that I wanted to go out there, they just sent me."

The right-hander is now 3-1 with a 3.99 ERA on the season and is 1-0 in his career versus the Mets. He has a 5.63 ERA against them in two games, including one start.

He'll follow up an excellent showing by Minor, who helped the Braves blank the Mets 6-0 on Saturday night not long after Atlanta finished off Friday's suspended contest with a 7-5 victory.

The Braves scored twice in the 10th inning to finish off the first game, then came out and used a five-run fifth frame to roll to a victory in the second contest of the series. Minor got the big inning started with a two-run homer, the first of his major league career.

"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.

On the mound, Minor won his third straight as he allowed just three hits over 7 1/3 innings. He also struck out 10.

Happy Recap: Game 47 - Padres at Mets - Santana pitches 4 hit shutout

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

San Diego (17-31)000000000040
N.Y. Mets (26-21) «40000005x990

W: J. Santana (2-2) L: C. Richard (2-6)
HR: SD - None   NYM - S. Hairston (4),V. Rottino (1),M. Nickeas (1)

Johan Santana tossed his ninth career shutout and first in close to two years as the New York Mets blanked the San Diego Padres, 9-0, in the third test of a four-game set at Citi Field.

Santana (2-2) last tossed a shutout on August 12, 2010 against the Colorado Rockies before undergoing left shoulder surgery in September of that year, which forced the lefty to miss the entire 2011 campaign.

The two-time Cy Young award winner allowed just four hits on Saturday and didn't issue a walk while striking out seven to extend his personal unbeaten streak to seven games.

"It's a great feeling for me just to put my uniform (on)," remarked Santana. "Being able to help and being able to go out there every five games is definitely something that I was waiting for and I'm very happy for and I'm just going to continue doing."

Scott Hairston belted a three-run blast and Mike Nickeas added a grand slam in the eighth for the Mets, who have won four of their last five.

Clayton Richard (2-6) was charged for four runs on five hits and three walks over six innings of work. Yonder Alonso extended his hit-streak to nine games with a single in the first, but the Padres fell for the fifth time in their last six tries.

New York tallied four runs in the bottom of the first inning as Andres Torres singled and David Wright followed two batters later with a four-pitch walk.

Both runners then advanced on a balk from Richard before Hairston plated everyone with a three-run blast to left field.

Vinny Rottino extended the margin to four two batters later with a solo shot over the wall in left-center field for his first major league home run.

"It's tough when you put your team in the hole early on," said Richard. "Four runs is kind of a big hole and it kind of changes the momentum of things right off the get-go."

Four runs provided plenty of run support for Santana, who retired 16 straight and 23 of the final 24 batters he faced after giving up a leadoff single to Chase Headley in the second.

The Mets blew the game open in the eighth as Justin Turner singled to start the frame before scoring on a double from pinch-hitter Ike Davis.

After Lucas Duda flied out, Rottino singled and Ronny Cedeno walked to load the bases for Nickeas, who launched his first major league grand slam over the left-field wall to give New York a 9-0 lead.

Game Notes
Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin left the game in the top of the sixth inning with a sprained right wrist...The Mets went 4-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left three on base...Santana improved to 3-3 in eight all-time starts against the Padres.

A long-shot to make any major league roster at one point in his career, Mike Baxter appears to be making up for lost time since joining the New York Mets.

He's also making the San Diego Padres regret what they once had.

Baxter tries to continue his solid play and lead the Mets to back-to-back wins as their series continues Saturday with the Padres.

Originally a fourth-round pick in the amateur draft by the Padres in 2005, Baxter steadily worked his way up the team's system until his major league debut in 2010 and appeared in nine games. The outfielder, though, tore ligaments in his thumb late in spring training last year and was placed on waivers in July, and the Mets claimed him the same day.

''He's a solid, fundamentally sound player. I think our minor league people taught him well,'' Padres manager Bud Black said of Baxter. ''He's a bright kid, our minor league guys really liked him. The cool thing is when a guy comes back and plays in his hometown.''

He appeared primarily as a defensive replacement in 22 games in 2011, getting 34 at-bats and had started this year doing the same. Recently, though, Baxter has found a groove at the plate, and with it, increased playing time.

Horrendous Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 47 - Mets at Cubs

Final Score: Chicago 11, New York 1

Ryan Dempster pitched seven strong innings and the Cubs capitalized on some shoddy New York fielding to pound the Mets, 11-1, at Wrigley Field.

Starlin Castro had three hits and drove in two for the Cubs, who also got a pair of RBI from Darwin Barney and Carlos Zambrano.

Dempster (3-4) allowed seven hits and fanned five to move his career mark to 10-5 against the Mets.

New York faltered in the opener of this three-game series by allowing five unearned runs. Jon Niese (3-5) yielded seven hits and six runs, but just two earned, over five frames.

"They put good swings on pitches. I don't think they hit me too hard, but obviously they hit them in the right spots," Niese said.

The Mets lost their third in a row and have surrendered 27 runs in that span.

Lou Montanez, in his first game with the Cubs, doubled to right field to score Aramis Ramirez to start a five-run second inning. Mets catcher Ronny Paulino then committed the first of his two errors on the night when the ball popped out of his glove on a throw home from first baseman Daniel Murphy. That came off a ground ball from Koyie Hill.

Following Dempster's sacrifice bunt and a Reed Johnson walk, Barney singled in Montanez to keep the bases full. Castro then singled in two more runs to cap the outburst.

A Jose Reyes infield single scored Ruben Tejada in the top of the fifth, but Castro's RBI triple down to the right field corner in the bottom half made it 6-1.

The Mets coming off the pitiful  3-game series against the Yanks have to get their bats started tonight. The Mets have seen limited action against Dempster with the exception of Carlos Beltran who owns him batting .667 (6 for 9) and  Jason Bay who is batting .154  who could not hit Dempster if he was throwing a beach ball. The collectively are hitting .347 against Dempster..

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 47 - Mets at Cubs

New York Mets (22-24) at Chicago Cubs (20-25), 8:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Jon Niese (3-4, 4.39) Chicago - Ryan Dempster (2-4, 6.91)

After a forgettable trip to one historic ballpark, the Chicago Cubs return to Wrigley Field to begin a lengthy homestand with the opener of a three-game set against the New York Mets.

The Cubs return home after dropping two of three to Boston in their first trip to Fenway Park since the 1918 World Series. Even the lone game they won in that series came with a loss as outfielder Marlon Byrd was hit in the face by a pitch in Saturday's 9-3 win and spent the night at a local hospital.
