Recap: Game 80 - Mets (2) at Pirates (3) - Mets Lose in 11th


New York


W: J. Hughes (4-2) L: V. Black (1-2)
HR: NYM - None   PIT - None


Josh Harrison's walk-off double in the 11th inning lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates over the New York Mets, 3-2, on Friday in the second game of a four-game series.

Clint Barmes drew a one-out walk off Vic Black (1-2) in the ninth and Harrison smacked a two-out, first-pitch fastball to the right-center field wall which allowed Barmes to come around from first to score without a throw.

Jared Hughes (4-2) allowed just one hit in the two extra frames to earn the win.

Jordy Mercer drove in two runs for the Pirates, who have won six of their last seven contests.

Lucas Duda collected two RBI and Travis d'Arnaud had three hits for the Mets, losers of three straight.

The Pirates had a golden opportunity to end the came in the 10th inning but failed to do so. The frame started with runners on second and third. After a strikeout, Andrew McCutchen was intentionally walked to loaded the bases, and Mets closer Jenrry Mejia escaped with a strikeout and a flyout.

Each team scored two runs in the fourth.

Ruben Tejada singled and Murphy doubled to right to put runners in scoring position to begin the frame. Duda followed with a two-run single off the glove of first baseman Ike Davis to put the Mets up 2-0.

The Pirates tied it on a Mercer two-out base hit up the middle with the bases loaded to score McCutchen and Davis.

Bobby Abreu had a chance to break the tie in the ninth with runners on first and third but grounded out to end the inning.

Game Notes

Mets starter Jacob deGrom allowed two runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings ... Pirates starter Brandon Cumpton tossed seven innings, yielding two runs on six hits ... The Mets' David Wright was a late scratch and will travel back to New York to undergo an MRI on his left shoulder ... The Pirates acquired reliever Ernesto Frieri from the Angels on Friday, in exchange for reliever Jason Grilli ... Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson snapped a 34-game streak of reaching base safely.

New York Mets (36-43) at Pittsburgh Pirates (40-39)

Probable Pitchers:
Jacob deGrom (1-4, 3.75 ERA) vs Brandon Cumpton (3-2, 4.93 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 7:05 PM


One of baseball's worst offenses in April, the Pirates (40-39) have been anything but over the past two months. They lead the majors with a .351 on-base percentage since May 1 and have averaged 4.88 runs in June, sixth in baseball and a run more than they put up per game a month ago.

McCutchen has certainly done his part, driving in 25 runs in 24 June games and leading the NL in slugging percentage (.711) this month after doubling Thursday. But the big story in the opener was Polanco, whose three-run homer in the fifth lifted Pittsburgh to a 5-2 win.

Mets manager Terry Collins was sufficiently impressed after his first look at the 22-year-old. The Pirates are 10-6 since Polanco, who raised his average to .338, came up June 10.

The Pirates' right fielder wasn't around when Jacob deGrom (1-4, 3.75 ERA) made his third major league start May 26. The right-hander held Pittsburgh scoreless for 6 2/3 innings despite five walks, but the bullpen couldn't hang onto his 2-0 lead in a 5-3 loss.

He had to wait until his eighth outing to pick up his first win, but he was quite impressive in doing so. DeGrom held the Marlins to five hits over seven innings Saturday, striking out seven, in a 4-0 victory at Miami.

Brandon Cumpton (3-2, 4.93) opposed deGrom in last month's meeting, holding the Mets (36-43) to two runs -- one earned -- in six innings, and he'll get the ball again Friday.

Cumpton is also coming off what was unquestionably his best start of the season. The right-hander held the Cubs to two hits over seven scoreless innings Sunday in a 2-1 win at Wrigley Field.

Cumpton, who is considered a rookie after pitching just 30 2/3 innings last season, is 3-0 with a 3.09 ERA in four June starts after allowing 10 runs over 3 2/3 in his final May outing.

Harrison made his second straight start in left field Thursday as Starling Marte again sat out with a jammed right middle finger. It's unclear if he'll return Friday.

Mets center fielder Juan Lagares went 1 for 4 in the opener, his first game in 25 days due to a ribcage injury.

Happy Recap: Game 80 - D'Backs (1) at Mets (9) - Mets explode in 7th for 7 Runs

Arizona (42-41)000000100160
N.Y. Mets (35-45)«00001071x9120
W: J. Hefner (3-6) L: P. Corbin (9-1)
HR: ARI - M. Prado (7)   NYM - A. Recker (3)


An offensive explosion during a seven-run seventh inning handed Patrick Corbin his first loss of the season and propelled the New York Mets to a 9-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday at a rainy Citi Field.

Josh Satin snapped a 1-1 tie with an RBI double prior to the contest heading into a 1-hour and 41-minute rain delay, and when play resumed New York added four more run-scoring hits to pave the way to its second win in as many nights.

Anthony Recker hit a solo homer and drove in a pair and Omar Quintanilla drove in three while accumulating two hits to provide Jeremy Hefner (3-6) with plenty of support.

Hefner tossed seven innings of one-run ball and allowed just four hits while striking out six. The righty has a 1.51 earned run average over his last six starts.

Corbin (9-1) was aiming to become the first Arizona starter to win his first 10 decisions, but loaded the bases in the seventh before giving way to the rain delay. He was charged with five runs on six hits over six frames.

Recker broke the scoreless tie in the fifth with a homer, and when play restarted in the seventh he ripped an RBI single off reliever Brad Ziegler to open the flood gates to the game-changing inning.

Quintanilla then ripped a two-run single into right to make it 5-1 and two batters later, Eric Young Jr. plated a pair with a double down the left field line. Juan Lagares then greeted reliever Will Harris with an RBI single and Quintanilla delivered another run-scoring hit the following frame to cap the scoring.

Hefner had gotten the leadoff hitter out in seven consecutive innings, but Martin Prado produced Arizona's only run with a one-out homer in the seventh.

The Mets managed just one run on three hits through the first six innings against Corbin, but matched those totals in the seventh before recording an out.

Satin had an opportunity with runners in scoring position after a single from David Wright and a double from Marlon Byrd, and the hot-hitting righty came through with a hit into the center field gap.

A.J. Pollock was unable to make the diving snag on Satin's shot, allowing Wright to trot home. Corbin then issued a walk to Andrew Brown before the contest was sent into a rain delay.

Game Notes

The Mets have won 11 of their last 17 games ... Young made his first start at second base since 2011 ... The D'backs have dropped a season-worst five straight games and 10 of their last 11 road contests ... Arizona's Gerardo Parra sat out after attempting to make a diving catch in Monday's loss.

Patrick Corbin has played the role of stopper very well for the Arizona Diamondbacks this season.

The struggling NL West leaders turn to their unbeaten left-hander on Tuesday hoping to avoid a fifth straight loss as they resume a four-game series with the New York Mets.

The Diamondbacks are 15-1 over Corbin's 16 starts this season, with the second-year hurler himself going 9-0 with a 2.22 earned run average. However, he has not factored into the outcome of his last five outings since picking up his last victory on June 2.

Corbin has a 2.55 ERA over his winless stretch and yielded just two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings at Washington on Thursday. Arizona won 3-2 in 11 innings.

"Obviously I'd like to get a win, but if the team wins, that's what I want. I just want to kind of keep us in the ballgame," Corbin said.

The 23-year-old, still looking to become the first Arizona pitcher to start a season 10-0, lost his only other career start versus the Mets. He allowed four runs on five hits and two walks in just 3 1/3 innings of a road setback on May 5 of last year.

Corbin will be looking to snap another winless stretch tonight as Arizona's starting rotation has not gotten a victory in 23 straight games. The unit is 0-9 over that span since a Wade Miley victory on June 5 and it is the second- longest such streak in team history according to the Elias Sports Bureau, behind only a 24-game span from April 17-May 14, 1998.

The Diamondbacks' bullpen has been able to pick up a few victories over that time, but twice failed to hold leads in Monday's 5-4 setback in 13 innings. J.J. Putz gave up a run ninth inning to force extra innings and Josh Collmenter suffered his first loss of the season after allowing Andrew Brown's two-run single in the bottom of the 13th.

Recap: Game 80 - Mets at Dodgers - Mets Sloppy Play Leads to Mets Loss , 8-3

Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles, CA)

N.Y. Mets (43-37)102000000353
L.A. Dodgers (44-36) «10002140x872

W: C. Kershaw (6-4) L: D. Gee (5-7)

HR: NYM - None   LAD - None

James Loney drove in the go-ahead run with a ground out in the sixth inning and the Dodgers avoided a four-game sweep with an 8-3 win over the Mets on Sunday.

Loney's groundout gave Los Angeles its first lead in 66 innings. He added an RBI double as part of a four-run seventh, helping the Dodgers halt a season- high seven-game losing streak.

All-Star Clayton Kershaw (6-4) got the win, allowing three runs -- one earned -- on five hits over seven innings. He walked three and struck out nine.

The two unearned runs came courtesy of consecutive third-inning errors by Dee Gordon, who atoned with an RBI and run scored later in the game.

Dillon Gee (5-7) took the loss for the Mets, winners of a four straight entering Sunday. He gave up four runs -- two earned -- on five hits and two walks over six innings.

"We didn't play good tonight," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "Dillon pitched good and we didn't help him. We just had a bad night tonight."

Scott Hairston had a first-inning RBI single in the setback.

Juan Rivera tied the game with an RBI double in the bottom half, but Gordon's gaffes allowed New York to reclaim the lead.

With runners at first and second and one down, David Wright hit a grounder to second baseman Adam Kennedy, who initiated a potential double play with a flip to Gordon. The shortstop tagged second base, but his throw to first was wide, allowing Gee to score.

On the next play, Gordon fielded a grounder from Hairston, then threw a one- hopper to first, which was bobbled by Loney, allowing Wright to cross the plate for a 3-1 lead.

Gordon was somewhat vindicated in the fifth when he plated Juan Uribe with a high chopper towards first, which was misplayed by Justin Turner. A.J. Ellis followed with a game-tying sac fly, scoring Tony Gwynn, who reached on an error by Ronny Cedeno.

An inning later, Rivera drew a leadoff walk, advanced to third on Kennedy's ground-rule double, and scored the go-ahead run on Loney's groundout to Cedeno.

Kennedy added a sac fly in the seventh and a pair of runs scored on an error by catcher Mike Nickeas.

"A great game for us. We took advantage of their mistakes," said Kershaw. "We went through a rough patch but hopefully we got out of it tonight. It feels good to win."

Game Notes

Kershaw improved to 5-0 in six career starts against the Mets...The Dodgers' seven-game losing streak was their longest since they dropped eight straight games in 2008...Kershaw and injured outfielder Matt Kemp were named to the National League All-Star team for the Dodgers, while pitcher R.A. Dickey and Wright made it for the Mets.

When things aren't going right, it's always nice to turn to your ace. That's exactly what the Los Angeles Dodgers will do tonight in the finale of a four-game series versus the New York Mets at Chavez Ravine.

Reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw looks to pull the Dodgers from the grips of a seven-game losing streak Sunday and is due for a fine performance after going 0-1 in his last two starts and 1-3 in his previous four decisions.

Kershaw was beaten on the road by San Francisco his last time out in Tuesday's 2-0 loss, as he yielded both runs and eight hits in six innings to fall to 5-4 in 16 starts with a 2.74 earned run average. The left-hander hopes to push his 3-3 home mark over .500 tonight and stay unbeaten in his career against the Mets. He is 4-0 with a sparkling 1.39 ERA in five starts in this series.

Los Angeles, which is one game behind San Francisco for the NL West lead, saw starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi fall to 0-5 on the season in Saturday's 5-0 loss. He allowed all five runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 frames for the Dodgers, who have lost 11 of their last 12 games and have been held scoreless six times over the stretch.

"It's really tough days right now (but) we know we're going to get out of this," said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. "We have to put runs on the board. When you're not putting up runs you look bad. Right now it's a rough time."

Happy Recap : Game 80 - Mets at Tigers - Mets Outdo Themselves Scoring 16 Runs, 20 Hits

Final Score: NY Mets 16, Detroit 9 

Daniel Murphy and Angel Pagan each drove in four runs as the Mets staved off several comeback bids from the Detroit Tigers and claimed a 16-9 win in the middle test of a three-game inter-league set.

Pagan finished 4-for-6 and scored three times for the red-hot Mets, who have tallied 52 runs in the last four games -- all wins. Scott Hairston knocked in three runs while Ronny Paulino had four hits and touched home four times for the victors.

"We're swinging the bats well. It's nice to play well, so hopefully we can keep it going," Murphy said.

Starter Chris Capuano (7-7) reaped the benefits of the offensive game, which was a season-high in runs and hits (20) to get the win. He allowed five runs on six hits over five-plus innings.

The Tigers clobbered five home runs to keep the game interesting but still suffered their third loss in seven games. That included a 14-3 pounding on Tuesday. Miguel Cabrera had two of the Wednesday homers that brought in four runs.

Detroit starter Phil Coke (1-8) continued his struggles and was roughed up for eight runs -- seven earned -- on 10 hits in four-plus innings. Then again, none of the Tigers pitchers had much success as manager Jim Leyland used position player Don Kelly to get the final out in the top of the ninth.

"The way we were hitting the ball out tonight I really thought we were going to win," Leyland said.

The Mets picked up where they left off in the opener of the series.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 80 - Mets at Tigers

New York Mets (40-39) at Detroit Tigers (43-37), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Mets - Chris Capuano (6-7, 3.99) Detroit - Phil Coke (1-7, 4.32)

The New York Mets exploded offensively on Tuesday to move above .500 for the first time since the first week of the season. Tonight, they shoot for a series win when they play the middle test of their three-game inter-league set against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

Jason Bay and Carlos Beltran each cleared the bases in the fourth and fifth inning, respectively, to break a 299-game drought without a grand slam, as the Mets rolled to a commanding 14-3 win.

The large offensive output saw a season-high in hits (18) that included Jose Reyes' 4-for-4 showing at the plate. The victory also put the Mets over the .500 mark (40-39) since the team was 3-2.

"We're not one of those bopping teams," Bay admitted. "We're more of a string two or three hits together instead of a bloop and a blast. It was nice to show that we can still hit the ball out of the ballpark."

The offense overshadowed a solid start by R.A. Dickey (4-7), who allowed three runs on 10 hits and struck out six over seven innings.
