Happy Recap: Game 75 - Mets (3) at Rockies (2) - Byrd HR Edges Rockies

N.Y. Mets (32-43)«000010020391

W: L. Hawkins (3-1) L: M. Belisle (4-5) S: B. Parnell (14)
HR: NYM - M. Byrd (12)   COL - None

Recap:

Marlon Byrd gave the Mets a winning end to their extended stay away from the Big Apple with a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning as New York edged the Colorado Rockies, 3-2, at Coors Field.

Byrd cracked a two-run shot off Matt Belisle (4-5) with the Mets trailing 2-1, and another solid bullpen effort completed a successful 7-4 road trip.

New York relievers gave up just two runs in 34 1/3 innings (0.52 ERA) during the trek, and LaTroy Hawkins (3-1) earned the win Thursday with a scoreless frame behind Jeremy Hefner, who allowed just two runs -- one earned -- on five hits over a six-inning start.

Trying to bridge the gap to the ninth, Belisle surrendered a one-out single to Daniel Murphy before Byrd crushed the seventh pitch of his at-bat over the wall in deep left-center to give the Mets a 3-2 lead.

Scott Rice struck out the dangerous Carlos Gonzalez to strand a runner in scoring position in the eighth, and Bobby Parnell closed out the makeup game from April with his 14th save of the season.

Michael Cuddyer was thrown out by Byrd trying to extend a single into a double to open the ninth, spoiling an otherwise special night for the 34-year-old outfielder.

Cuddyer etched his name in the Rockies' record books with a clean, line drive single to center field leading off the second inning. He later scored on Todd Helton's sacrifice fly, and it was 2-0 when Wilin Rosario came across on Josh Satin's throwing error later in the frame.

Nolan Arenado had made a terrific barehanded play at third base in the top of the inning, which started a slew of highlight-reel plays behind Tyler Chatwood. Corey Dickerson immediately followed by robbing Zach Lutz of a base hit with a diving grab in center, and Colorado limited the Mets to one run in the fifth despite the visitors putting their first three hitters on base.

Arenado forced out Satin at home with a stop to his left and a pinpoint off- balanced throw to the plate, and after Hefner pushed a run across with a groundout, Gonzalez raced into foul territory and slid near the fence while catching the final out.

Chatwood struck out the final batter he faced, Juan Lagares, to leave the bases loaded in the sixth, but it was his 103rd pitch and he was pulled the next frame having allowed one run on four hits and three walks.

Game Notes

Cuddyer's hitting streak is the longest in the majors this season. He broke Dante Bichette's team record that ran from May 22-June 18, 1995 ... Mets third baseman David Wright did not appear in a game for the first time this season ... Six of Byrd's 12 home runs have come in June ... The Rockies have lost three straight and eight of their last 10 games ... Colorado had won the previous seven games against the Mets.

Preview:

At least Michael Cuddyer had success over the Colorado Rockies' disappointing road trip.

Cuddyer returns to Coors Field on Thursday the owner of a franchise record- tying hit streak, a run he'll look to extend in a makeup game against the New York Mets.

The 34-year-old outfielder is hitting .375 over his 23-game streak, which ties Dante Bichette for the longest in club history. Bichette first set the record from May 22-June 18, 1995.

Cuddyer has also reached base safely in 42 straight games -- a Rockies single- season record -- after homering twice in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Boston. A career .274 hitter, Cuddyer is third in the NL this season with a .344 average.

"You go through points in the season where you feel really good," Cuddyer told Colorado's website. "Through this little streak I've also gotten lucky. I've gotten some hits in certain games, whether it's a broken bat or infield hits or something like that. Things are just going my way on top of feeling good at the plate. It's just one of those things."

Despite Cuddyer's current tear, the Rockies are coming off a 2-7 road trip and sit three games behind Arizona for first place in the NL West. They'll play their next seven at home, where they are 23-17 on the year.

The Mets, meanwhile, conclude what was extended to an 11-game road trip thanks to an April 17 postponement in Denver due to a snowstorm. Colorado won the other three games of that set, including a sweep of a doubleheader on April 16 after the opener was also postponed.

Recap: Game 75 - Mets at Cubs - Cubs beat Mets 5-3


Wrigley Field (Chicago, Ill.)

S: C. Marmol (5)

HR: NYM - None   CHC - None

Recap:
Anthony Rizzo's RBI double in the fourth proved to be the difference as the Chicago Cubs took a 5-3 win over the New York Mets in the second of three games from Wrigley Field.

Alfonso Soriano, Luis Valbuena and Darwin Barney all drove in a run for the Cubs, who have taken the first two of this set after dropping four straight.

Randy Wells lasted just three-plus innings and was charged with three runs on six hits with four walks. Scott Maine (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings to get the first win of his career.

David Wright and Josh Thole both drove in a run for the Mets, who matched a season high with their fourth straight loss. Dillon Gee (5-6) gave up four runs on nine hits over five innings and also drove in a run in the loss.

"I was out there battling and trying to make some pitches, but I left some of them up there and they got a hold of them," said Gee. "They were just able to put the ball in the right spots."

The Mets grabbed the first lead of the game with a pair of runs in the second inning. With two outs, Scott Hairston singled and Daniel Murphy followed suit. Thole and Gee then scored a run each with a single for a 2-0 lead.

The Cubs, though, went up in the third. David DeJesus led off with a single and Starlin Castro walked. A groundout moved the runners up a base and DeJesus scored when Alfonso Soriano grounded out. After Bryan LaHair drew a walk, Valbuena doubled to scored Castro and Barney followed with an RBI single for a 3-2 lead.

New York tied the game in the fourth thanks to Wright's sac fly that plated Thole, but Chicago went back on top in the home portion.

Steve Clevenger singled to start the frame, but the next two batters recorded outs. After Castro singled, Rizzo punched a double to center for a 4-3 lead.

"It was awesome to have that," said Rizzo, who made his Major League debut in the game. "Being able to come into the clubhouse and contribute right away, it's a great feeling."

Chicago added an insurance run in the eighth when, with men on first and second, Reed Johnson hit a grounder to short for a single that saw Ruben Tejada throw the ball away, allowing Barney to cross the plate for a 5-3 lead.

Carlos Marmol worked around a leadoff walk to Wright in the ninth to grab his fifth save of the season.

Game Notes

The Mets went just 2-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left 12 on base. The left at least one man on base in each inning after the first...Chicago stranded nine, but did have four hits in 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position...Mets first baseman Ike Davis was ejected from the game by first base umpire Manny Gonzalez in the eighth inning for arguing a call. Davis made contact with Gonzalez on the arm with his glove.

Preview:
The New York Mets may be in the thick of the NL East race, but being among the worst fielding teams in the league could end up costing them.

It's certainly making a difference lately.

The Mets will try to rebound from one of their worst fielding displays of the season Tuesday night when they continue a three-game road set against the Chicago Cubs, who are expected to have top prospect Anthony Rizzo in the lineup for the first time.

New York, which hasn't dropped four straight since April 30-May 4, ranks among the major league leaders with 58 errors, five coming in the last two games.

That sloppiness was a problem again in Monday night's series opener, as the Mets' three errors contributed to Chicago's four-run seventh in a 6-1 defeat. David Wright and Lucas Duda misplayed popups that became three-base errors as the wind at Wrigley posed problems.

"Weird would be one would be one way to describe it," manager Terry Collins said. "I have another description for it that I can't say here ... It's that kind of night. We don't make those mistakes. Unfortunately it came back to haunt us."

Chicago's six runs Monday were one less than it totaled during a four-game slide and the Cubs (25-48) are hoping to get a boost from Rizzo, who is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Iowa, where he hit .342 with 23 homers and 62 RBIs.

The 22-year-old Rizzo, acquired in an offseason trade with San Diego, hit .141 with one homer and nine RBIs in 49 games with the Padres last year.

Rizzo is expected to bat either third or fourth and take over as the everyday first baseman, replacing Bryan LaHair.

Happy Recap : Game 75 - A's at Mets - Reyes/Capuano beat A's


Final Score: NY Mets 4, Oakland 1

Jose Reyes had two hits, two RBI and a run scored to back six scoreless innings by Chris Capuano to give New York a 4-1 victory over Oakland in the rubber match of a three-game interleague set from Citi Field.

Capuano (6-7) allowed five hits and did not issue a walk while striking out seven, but left the game due to a right oblique injury after the sixth inning.

Francisco Rodriguez tossed a perfect ninth inning to earn his 20th save of the year to give New York its third win in the last five games.

Graham Godfrey (1-1) allowed four runs -- two earned -- on six hits and two walks in Oakland's second straight loss after a six-game win streak.

The Mets got all the runs they would need after loading the bases with no outs in the second on consecutive singles by Jason Bay, Lucas Duda and Josh Thole. Capuano came up next and grounded into a 4-6-3 double play to score Bay and Reyes followed with a bouncer up the middle to bring home Duda to give New York a 2-0 lead.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 75 - A's at Mets


Oakland Athletics (34-41) at New York Mets (36-38), 1:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Oakland - Graham Godfrey (1-0, 4.76) New York Mets - Chris Capuano (5-7, 4.29)

The Oakland Athletics lost in frustrating fashion to the New York Mets last night, watching their season-high six-game win streak go to waste on a hit batsmen with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 13th inning.

Oakland vies to bounce back and earn a series victory Thursday afternoon in the rubber match of this three-game interleague set from Citi Field.

Brad Ziegler was on the hill for the A's in the 13th inning of last night's contest and allowed a one-out single to Lucas Duda, who moved to second on Daniel Murphy's ensuing base hit. Jose Reyes was then intentionally walked and Ziegler plunked Justin Turner to allow Duda to stroll home for a 3-2 New York win.

"I know the pitch was inside, it got away from me," said Ziegler, who was pinned with the loss. "It's just not how you want to end the game. If I'm going to lose, I'd rather be beaten with a base hit."

Athletics starter Gio Gonzalez was brilliant through seven innings in a no- decision, as he yielded only one run and four hits with eight strikeouts and one walk. He also retired 15 of the final 17 batters he faced. Oakland starters were 5-0 with a 1.16 ERA in six games before Gonzalez's result.

Kurt Suzuki homered and Conor Jackson recorded two hits and an RBI for the Athletics, who will visit Philadelphia for three games on this road swing and sit 5 1/2 games behind Texas for the American League West lead.

Before their recent six-game winning streak, the A's had lost 13 of 14 games, including 10 in a row from May 30-June 9.
