Recap: Game 65 - Brewers (3) at Mets (1) - deGrom loses another heartbreaker



New York

W: W. Peralta (6-5) L: J. deGrom (0-3) S: F. Rodriguez (20)
HR: MIL - None   NYM - None


Wily Peralta retired nine of the last 10 batters he faced in 6 1/3 solid innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Mets 3-1 on Wednesday night.

Peralta (6-5) won his second straight start, giving up just one run on four hits and a walk while trimming his ERA from 3.03 to 2.90 for the season.

Jonathan Lucroy had three hits, including two doubles, and scored a run for the Brewers, who have won three of their last four.

Curtis Granderson reached base the first three times he was up on a walk, a single and a double for the Mets, who had won the opener of the three-game series 6-2 on Tuesday after losing the last six games of a brutal 11-game road trip.

Granderson scored New York's only run on Lucas Duda's sacrifice fly in the second inning.

Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom (0-3) remained winless in his first six MLB starts. The 25-year-old rookie gave up three runs on nine hits and a walk in 5 2/3 innings.

New York manager Terry Collins was ejected by home plate umpire Gary Cederstrom in the fifth inning after challenging a bang-bang play at first base in which Taylor Teagarden was called out.

Collins came back out of the dugout to argue when the ruling on the field was upheld upon review. He said Cederstrom handled the situation "like he's supposed to" and didn't offer an explanation on the decision. (Plays are reviewed in MLB's offices in New York.)

"(Cederstrom) said, 'The play stands. I don't have anything else to tell you," recalled Collins. "I said, 'Well, I have something to say.'"

DeGrom pitched his way out if a bases-loaded jam in the first inning with back-to-back strikeouts of Aramis Ramirez and Kris Davis. The Mets then took a 1-0 lead in the second after Granderson walked, went first-to-third on Bobby Abreu's single and scored on Duda's sacrifice fly.

But Scooter Gennett led off the third inning with a double for Milwaukee, went to third base on a line out and scored on Lucroy's groundout to tie the score.

And the Brewers took a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning after Aramis Ramirez doubled, went to third base on Davis' single and scored on Jean Segura's hit.

They scraped together another run in the fifth after Ryan Braun drew a leadoff walk, advanced to third on Lucroy's double and scored on Carlos Gomez's single.

Braun was thrown out at home plate in the seventh inning trying to score from first base on Lucroy's double to the right-center field gap. Center fielder Matt den Dekker didn't field the ball cleanly but got the ball in fast and second baseman Daniel Murphy's relay throw was on target to nab Braun.

Peralta had thrown 57 of his 92 pitches for strikes when he was lifted for reliever Zach Duke with a runner on first base on the seventh inning. Duke got Duda on a pop up and Rob Wooten retired Teagarden on a fly ball to end the inning.

Will Smith pitched around a single in a scoreless eighth for Milwaukee and Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 ninth against his former team for his 20th save of the season.

Game Notes

Collins said he thinks the new replay system "has been good" but added about the Teagarden play, "I have seen closer plays than this one overturned. ... I'm not sure which cameras or angles they were looking at."

Preview: Game 65
Milwaukee Brewers (38-27) at New York Mets (29-35)

Probable Pitchers:
Wily Peralta (5-5) 3.03 ERA vs Jacob deGrom (0-2) 3.19 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 7:10 PM


New York (29-35) is among the worst offensive teams in the majors with a .234 average, .351 slugging percentage and 47 homers. The Mets are batting .228 over the past seven games but homered on two of their five hits while ending a six-game slide with Tuesday's 6-2 win over Milwaukee.

The victory in the opener of this three-game series came after general manager Sandy Alderson refuted reports that Collins' job was in danger.

The Mets are aiming for their first four-game home winning streak since Aug. 6-20, but they're batting .202 over their last three at Citi Field.

Taylor Teagarden may have done enough to earn another start behind the plate after hitting a grand slam in his Mets debut, hours after being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace demoted catcher Travis d'Arnaud.

Despite Teagarden's unexpected slam, the Mets will likely continue to rely on a staff that has compiled a 1.33 ERA over the past three home games.

Jacob deGrom owns a 1.83 ERA in three home starts, but he's still seeking his first win anywhere in the majors.

The rookie right-hander has allowed seven runs in 11 1/3 innings while not getting a decision over his last two starts -- both on the road. Each of his three previous outings came at Citi Field, and he'll be looking to rebound from his worst performance of the season.

DeGrom (0-2, 3.19 ERA) was tagged for four runs in five innings of Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs. He served up a two-run homer to opposing starter Travis Wood.

The Brewers (38-27) will counter with Wily Peralta (5-5, 3.03), who has struggled with his command while splitting his past two starts. The right-hander allowed 10 runs and three homers with five walks in 10 2/3 innings over those outings after he had a 2.12 ERA in his first 10 games.

Peralta's recent issues were on display during Thursday's 8-5 win at Minnesota. He yielded four runs with three walks while throwing 101 pitches in five innings, but was backed by six runs and got his first win in six starts.

Peralta had little trouble in his only meeting with the Mets on Sept. 16, 2012, allowing two hits in eight innings of a 3-0 victory.

Recap: Game 65 - Mets (1) at Braves (2) - Freeman HR off Gee in 9th the difference

N.Y. Mets (25-40)000000100170
Atlanta (42-28)«000000002250

W: D. Carpenter (1-0) L: D. Gee (5-7)
HR: NYM - None   ATL - F. Freeman (7)


Freddie Freeman blasted a two-run homer in the ninth inning to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 2-1 win over the New York Mets on Monday.

Mets starter Dillon Gee (5-7) scattered three hits over 8 1/3 innings, then gave up a base hit to Justin Upton before Freeman crushed a no-doubter over the wall in right field.

David Carpenter (1-0) worked a scoreless ninth to pick up the win.

The game was delayed three hours, 43 minutes because of rain. Both Gee and Atlanta starter Tim Hudson mowed through the opposing lineups once the tarps were pulled off until New York finally broke through in the seventh inning.

John Buck opened the seventh with a base hit that was deflected by Braves second baseman Dan Uggla. Buck moved to second on Omar Quintanilla's slow groundout to third, and Gee followed with a base hit to left field to bring Buck around.

It was the only blemish for Hudson, who scattered six hits and struck out six over seven innings.

Gee worked around a one-out walk in the eighth inning and retired the first batter in the ninth before giving up Upton's base hit that set the table for the game-winner.

The game ended at 1:22 a.m. EST, and the teams are scheduled to play a day/night double header on Tuesday. The opener of the twinbill is slated for 1:10 p.m.

Game Notes

Gee, who was credited with his second career complete game, has never tossed a shutout ... Freeman has seven home runs this season ... Hudson, who hasn't picked up a win since May 5, has lasted at least seven innings in four straight starts.

The Atlanta Braves will try to pad their lead in the National League East, as they entertain the New York Mets on Monday for the first of five straight games between the division rivals at Turner Field.

The Braves' 6 1/2-game cushion is the widest margin for any division leader in baseball, and they sit 13 1/2 games ahead of the Mets. The Braves have been awfully tough to beat at home, where they boast a major league-best 23-8 record and 2.32 ERA.

The most recent of those home victories came Sunday over San Francisco in a 3-0 final. Freddie Freeman had three hits and an RBI in support of starter Julio Teheran, who pitched six shutout innings and fanned eight.

Meanwhile, the Mets are coming off a thrilling 4-3 walkoff win over the Cubs on Sunday. Trailing 3-0 entering the bottom of the ninth, Marlon Byrd led off the frame with a solo homer and Kirk Nieuwenhuis later came through with a three-run blast off Carlos Marmol to end it. It was a much needed victory for the Mets, who had lost 10 of 12 before Sunday's dramatic finish.

"You don't forget about this," Byrd said. "You build off of it, remember how much fun it is coming in the clubhouse, the celebration. You try to build off it and keep winning games."

Toeing the rubber for New York in Monday's series opener is Dillon Gee, who is trying to keep his spot in the rotation as the organization's top prospect, Zack Wheeler, gets set to make his big league debut on Tuesday.

Recap: Game 65 - Reds at Mets - Mets Lose 7-3, Lose Bay

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

Cincinnati (36-27) «0220002017110
N.Y. Mets (35-30)000001200341

W: B. Arroyo (3-4) L: D. Gee (4-5)
HR: CIN - J. Bruce (14),B. Phillips (9)   NYM - K. Nieuwenhuis (6),S. Hairston (9)

Wilson Valdez drove in three runs as the Cincinnati Reds took a 7-3 win over the New York Mets in the opener of a three-game series.

Brandon Phillips hit a two-run home run while Jay Bruce had an inside-the-park homer for the Reds, who have won four straight.

Bronson Arroyo (3-4) won for the first time since May 7 as he gave up just three runs on four hits with two walks and five strikeouts over six-plus innings. He had been 0-3 in his previous six starts.

"The pitching staff had been pretty consistent since the first day and our defense has been great," said Arroyo. "The only thing that you can attribute to our losses is scoring a few more runs. And know we're playing teams that are playing good and still finding ways to win, so that's a good sign for us."

Dillon Gee (4-5) was touched for four runs -- three earned -- on five hits with a walk and four strikeouts over six innings of work for the Mets, who had a three-game winning streak stopped. Scott Hairston hit a two-run home run in the loss.

The second inning saw the Reds plate two men to grab the lead. Bruce led off the frame with a fly ball to left field. Jason Bay tried to track down the ball, but it landed just out of his reach as he dove and crashed into the wall, allowing Bruce to come all the way home. Bay left the game and was replaced by Hairston, who committed an error two batters later when he misplayed a Ryan Ludwick double that saw Todd Frazier, who had singled prior to Ludwick, come home.

"He was dizzy. I asked him what he did and he said he hit his head," said New York manager Terry Collins about Bay. "I asked him if he was dizzy and he said yes so I told him he was done. He wanted to try and go back out there and I told him no, not with the past."

Cincinnati made it a 4-0 game in the third inning as Joey Votto was hit by a pitch and Phillips followed with a shot over the left-center wall for his ninth homer of the season.

The Mets had just three runners reach base through the first five innings, but got on the board in the sixth when Kirk Nieuwenhuis led off the frame with his sixth homer of the year.

The Reds, though, got it back and one more in the seventh on a two-run double from Valdez for a 6-1 advantage.

New York got back to within three in the seventh as Ike Davis led off with a single and Hairston followed with a two-run homer. Jose Arredondo came on to relieve Arroyo and set down the next three batters to get out of the inning.

Sean Marshall pitched a scoreless eighth while Valdez added an RBI single in the top of the ninth.

Aroldis Chapman retired the Mets in order in the ninth to close the game.

Game Notes

The Mets said during the game that Bay possibly suffered a concussion on the play. He had a concussion in 2010, his first season with the Mets...Phillips has 22 RBI in his last 18 games...Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker celebrated his 63rd birthday on Friday...Arroyo improved to 8-3 in 14 starts against the Mets...The Reds placed outfielder Drew Stubbs on the 15-day disabled list on Friday with a strained muscle on his left side. Valdez made his first ever start in center due to Stubbs' absence along with Chris Heisey being sidelined with a mild left groin strain.

A pair of National League teams on a roll get together tonight at Citi Field, where the Central Division-leading Cincinnati Reds open a three-game series against the New York Mets.

The Reds will also visit Cleveland for three games on their road trip and just swept the Indians in three games at Great American Ball Park to take the first installment of the Battle of Ohio. The Reds banged out a 12-5 win over the Tribe in Thursday's series finale, as Brandon Phillips recorded three hits, including a home run, and four RBI to lead the way.

Phillips has knocked in 20 runs over his last 17 games.

Joey Votto hit a three-run homer and Ryan Ludwick added a two-run shot for Cincinnati, which leads the NL Central by three games over Pittsburgh and St. Louis and went 5-4 on its homestand. Votto is 20-for-40 (.500) with four home runs and 14 RBI in his last 11 contests. Reds starter Mike Leake avoided a decision by allowing three runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 innings, while Jose Arredondo picked up the win by getting the final two outs of the fifth inning.

"We needed every run we could get today," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "They can score runs in bunches and we feel very fortunate to have swept them."

Baker will celebrate his 63rd birthday today.

Bronson Arroyo hasn't tasted victory in more than a month and the Reds hope that changes when he takes the mound tonight. Arroyo is 0-3 with a 4.91 earned run average in six starts since a May 7 win at Milwaukee, and did not record a decision in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Detroit.

Happy Recap : 2011 Regular Season Game 65 - Mets at Pirates (Mets Rake, Cappy pitches gem)

Final Score: New York 7, Pittsburgh 0

Chris Capuano tossed seven shutout innings to lead New York past Pittsburgh, 7-0, in the third test of a four-game set.

Capuano (5-6) scattered three hits and two walks while fanning five as the Mets were victorious for the seventh time in 10 games.

Kevin Correia (8-5) allowed four runs on seven hits in 7 2/3 innings for the loss, the third in four games for the Pirates.

Correia was perfect through four innings before allowing a two-out single to Jason Bay in the fifth.

New York broke through in the seventh inning after Daniel Murphy singled, advanced to third on a single by Angel Pagan and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jason Bay to give the Mets a 1-0 lead.

That run would be all the Mets would need behind Capuano, but they added some insurance in the eighth on an RBI double by Justin Turner that ended Correia's day. Pinch-hitter Willie Harris singled with two outs and was followed by a Jose Reyes base-hit before Turner smacked a ball off the right-field wall to bring in Harris.

Surprise early-season standout Kevin Correia can get the Pittsburgh Pirates back to .500 today when they host the New York Mets in game three of a four-game set at PNC Park.

The Mets entered Saturday's game with a chance to get back to .500, but were denied when Andrew McCutchen stroked a two-run double and James McDonald tossed six innings in the Pirates' 3-2 win.

McDonald (4-4) gave up two runs, eight hits and three walks for the Pirates, who rebounded from an 8-1 loss in the opener and are 7-4 in their last 11 contests. Jose Tabata is riding a five-game hitting streak.

R.A. Dickey (3-7) went the distance for New York, allowing three runs on eight hits over eight frames. Jose Reyes had two hits and leads the majors with 32 multi-hit games this season. He has reached base safely in 52 of his 61 games this season and leads the majors with a .341 average, 91 hits and 11 triples.

The Mets lost for just the third time in their last nine games.
