Recap: Game 6 - Reds (2) at Mets (1) - Juan Lagares drives in only run in loss



New York

W: A. Simon (1-0) L: J. Niese (0-1) S: M. Parra (1)
HR: CIN - None   NYM - None


Alfredo Simon tossed seven solid innings and the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets, 2-1, to avoid a three-game sweep.

Simon (1-0) gave up one run on four hits while striking out six in his first start since September 2011 when he was with the Baltimore Orioles.

Joey Votto and Ryan Ludwick had an RBI apiece for the Reds, who snapped a three-game skid.

Juan Lagares drove in the lone run for the Mets, who were trying to sweep a series from the Reds in New York for the first time since May 16-18, 2005.

New York starter Jonathon Niese (0-1) allowed two runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings. The left-hander was originally scheduled to start on Opening Day for the Mets, but he was plagued with muscle weakness in his throwing shoulder and ultimately wound up on the disabled list with inflammation in his elbow.

The Mets jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Ike Davis scored on Lagares' single to left. Davis, who hit a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning on Saturday, reached base on a double down the left-field line.

New York had a chance to tack on more runs in the third. With runners on second and third, Simon fanned Daniel Murphy and David Wright to keep it 1-0.

The Reds finally got to Niese in the sixth. Simon, Chris Heisey and Brandon Phillips hit three straight singles to load the bases with no outs. Votto's sacrifice fly and Ludwick's RBI single to left gave Cincinnati a 2-1 lead.

Manny Parra tossed two scoreless innings to pick up the first save of his professional career.

Rookie right-hander Jose Fernandez makes his major-league debut amid a season-opening 1-4 skid Sunday when the Miami Marlins visit Citi Field to wrap up a three-game series with the New York Mets.

Fernandez, a native of Cuba who was the 14th overall pick in the 2011 draft, debuted in the minors in 2011 and was 0-1 in two starts with a pair of teams on the Single-A level.

He exploded in his second season of pro ball, however, winning 14 of 15 decisions across 25 starts with a combined 1.75 earned run average at Greensboro of the South Atlantic League and Jupiter of the Florida State League.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder struck out 158 batters and allowed only 89 hits in 134 innings.

Recap: Game 6 - Nationals at Mets - Santana not good enough as Mets drop 2nd in a row

Final Score: Washington 4, New York 0

Stephen Strasburg outdueled Johan Santana on Wednesday afternoon and the Washington Nationals topped the New York Mets, 4-0, in the finale of a three-game series.

Strasburg (1-0) struck out nine and gave up just two hits and three walks in six innings. He went over 100 pitches for the first time in his career, with 63 of 108 going for strikes.

Twenty-four of those pitches came during the sixth, when Strasburg gave up a walk and a single, but Nats manager Davey Johnson left him in.

"I would have probably had to strangle him to get the ball out of his hand," Johnson joked.

Santana (0-1) took the loss despite allowing just one run on five hits and three walks over five-plus innings while striking out eight. The Mets dropped the last two games of the series after starting the season 4-0.

Strasburg and three other Nats pitchers struck out 15 batters in the three-hit shutout. Nationals batters drew 10 walks for the first time in almost three years and Mets manager Terry Collins was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Larry Vanover during the game.

New York scored two runs on 10 hits in two games without third baseman David Wright, who fractured his right pinky finger on Monday night.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 6 - Mets at Phillies

New York Mets (3-2) at Philadelphia Phillies (4-1), 3:05 p.m. 

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Jon Niese (0-0, 2.57) Philadelphia - Roy Halladay (0-0, 1.50)

The Philadelphia Phillies' offense put on a show in last night's victory over the New York Mets. With Roy Halladay slated to take the mound this afternoon, the reigning National League East champions probably won't need such a prolific display against their bitter division rivals.

Halladay was especially dominant in his four matchups against New York during his excellent first season in Philadelphia last year, with the 2010 NL Cy Young Award recipient winning each of those contests and yielding just nine runs over a combined 31 2/3 innings over that span. 

Including his previous tenure with the Toronto Blue Jays, the All-Star right-hander is 6-2 with a 3.86 earned run average in eight career meetings with the Mets. 

The Mets are batting .295 against Roy Halladay and here is the proof:

Final Score: St. Louis 3, NY Mets 2 

Gerald Laird's sacrifice fly in the seventh inning scored the go-ahead run, as the St. Louis Cardinals rallied for a 3-2 win over the New York Mets in a Grapefruit League game.

The Cardinals trailed 2-0 heading to the bottom of the third, but Jon Jay ripped an RBI double in the inning to get them on the board and Matt Carpenter added an RBI double in the sixth to tie the game.

Tyler Greene led off the seventh with a single, moved to second on Jay's bunt and third on Adron Chambers' single and then scored when Laird flew out to center field.

Jake Westbrook started for the Cardinals and threw two innings, giving up RBI singles to Ruben Tejada and Luis Castillo. Westbrook yielded five hits and a walk, striking out one. Jason Motte got the win with two scoreless innings.

Mets starter R.A. Dickey allowed one run on three hits in three innings, striking out four in a no-decision. Josh Stinson took the loss, giving up runs in the sixth and seventh innings.
