Happy Recap: Game 5 - Marlins (3) at Mets (7) - Buck to the Rescue

Miami (1-4)1000101003112
N.Y. Mets (3-2)«10000231x791
W: B. Lyon (1-0) L: R. Webb (0-1)
HR: MIA - None   NYM - C. Cowgill (2)

John Buck had four RBI, and the New York Mets used a three-run seventh inning to snap a tie and beat Miami, 7-3, in the second of three games between the clubs.

"Last year, if something could go wrong, it went wrong. And then I tried harder to fix it," Buck said about his 2012 season with the Marlins. "It was a lot of stuff just piling up that I couldn't get right."

David Wright finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored, while Collin Cowgill added a solo homer for the Mets, who snapped a two-game slide.

Josh Edgin (1-0) recorded the final out of the top of the seventh for the win.

Greg Dobbs totaled two hits and drove in two runs for the Marlins, who couldn't maintain momentum from a 7-5 win in Friday's series opener.

Ryan Webb (0-1) was charged with the defeat after giving up three runs (two earned) and two hits with two walks over 1 2/3 relief frames.

New York picked up three runs in the home seventh to take a 6-3 lead.

Mike Baxter walked with one down, stole second and scored on a Daniel Murphy triple, then Wright added a single to plate Murphy for a two-run spread. Wright stole second ahead of an intentional walk to Ike Davis, then Buck's fly to right brought in Wright for a three-run edge.

Cowgill's two-out solo homer in the eighth made it 7-3 for the hosts, and Bobby Parnell retired the side in order in the ninth.

Dobbs' two-out single pushed across a Miami run in the top of the first, but the Mets countered in the home half on a sac fly from Buck.

Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada's bad throw to first on a potential double-play grounder from Dobbs in the fifth scored Placido Polanco to give the Fish a 2-1 edge. Polanco singled with one down and advanced on a Giancarlo Stanton base hit.

In the sixth, Wright and Davis hit consecutive one-out singles and Buck doubled both home for a 3-2 Mets' edge.

Dobbs drove in Juan Pierre to tie the score in the seventh, but was called out by home plate umpire Jim Joyce after he ruled Pierre interfered with Buck as he tried to throw to second to erase Dobbs.

"I've been watching the game for 42 years at this level and never saw anything like it before," said Mets manager Terry Collins.

Game Notes

Mets starter Jon Niese allowed eight hits and one earned run over his six- inning start, while counterpart Ricky Nolasco exited after 5 1/3 frames having given up six hits and three runs with three walks and as many strikeouts.

Lefty Jonathon Niese tries to make it two straight wins to start the season Saturday when the New York Mets host the Miami Marlins in the second of a three-game weekend series at Citi Field.

The 26-year-old from Lima, Ohio, who won a career-best 13 games in 30 starts last season, opened 2013 with an 11-2 defeat of the San Diego Padres while allowing four hits and two runs in 6 2/3 innings on April 1.

Niese was a seventh-round pick of the Mets in 2005 and reached the big leagues with New York in 2008, eventually becoming a full-time member of the rotation with 30 starts - and a 9-10 record - in 2010.

He was 11-11 in 27 appearances in 2011, then recorded a career-best 3.40 earned run average in 190 1/3 innings while allowing a .241 opposition batting average last season.

Shane Robinson went 2-for-2 with a home run and three RBI, as the heavy-hitting St. Louis Cardinals eased past the New York Mets, 12-4, Wednesday in spring training action.

New York's Zach Wheeler was scheduled to make the start, but the highly touted prospect strained his right oblique muscle prior the game in batting practice and was scratched from the lineup.

Former Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran went 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI double, as the Cards poured in four runs in the third and fourth inning, respectively. Lance Lynn picked up the win, striking out three batters and allowing four hits in two innings of work.

David Wright went 2-for-3, while John Buck, Anthony Recker and Collin Cowgil all homered for the Mets. Darin Gorski was dealt with the loss, allowing four runs on three hits over two innings.

Preview - Game 5 - Nationals at Mets - Dillon Gee looks to keep Mets perfect

Washington Nationals (2-2) at New York Mets (4-0) at  7:10PM (EST.)

Starting Pitching Probables -  Ross Detwiler (0-0) vs Dillon Gee (0-0)

Expectations may be very low for the New York Mets this season, but they're in position for their best start in 27 years.

Dillon Gee is familiar with impressive starts.

Gee will try to help the Mets keep their perfect record intact Tuesday night when they face the Washington Nationals at Citi Field.

After finishing fourth in the NL East at 77-85 last season and losing Jose Reyes to Miami via free agency, New York (4-0) was a popular pick to finish 2012 at the bottom of the division.

It's extremely early, but four wins in four games has made the Mets the biggest surprise in baseball so far.

Daniel Murphy's walkoff single completed a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over Washington (2-2) in the opener of this three-game set Monday.

A win Tuesday would make New York 5-0 for the first time since 1985, and the four-game winning streak already matches the team's longest at home last season from April 21-24.

"Everybody is excited. We know that it' a long year, but we want to show our fans that maybe we are better than everyone expects us to be," manager Terry Collins said. "It's never about the effort with these guys."

Gee knows all about strong starts. The right-hander won his first seven decisions last year, compiling a 2.86 ERA in 13 games - 10 starts. He dropped off the rest of the way, going 6-6 with a 5.51 ERA in 17 starts.

Gee, though, finished the season 7-3 with a 3.17 ERA in 15 appearances at Citi Field, including a 1.35 ERA while going 1-0 in two starts versus the Nationals.

Overall, he's 3-0 with a 3.60 ERA against the division rivals.

David Wright is playing a major role in the Mets' surprising start after hitting a career-low .254 with 14 homers and 61 RBIs in 102 games last year. The third baseman is 7 for 12 with one homer and an RBI in each of the four contests.
