Recap: Game 83 - Mets (3) at Braves (5) - Mets Blunders in 8th Cost Game


New York


W: A. Varvaro (3-1) L: J. Familia (1-3) S: C. Kimbrel (25)
HR: NYM - C. Granderson (11)   ATL - None


Freddie Freeman walked three times and finished with two RBI in the Atlanta Braves' 5-3 win over the New York Mets on Monday.

Alex Wood struck out seven and gave up three runs in six innings for the Braves, winners of a season-high fifth straight game following a four-game sweep in Philadelphia. Anthony Varvaro (3-1) recorded the win for a scoreless eighth and Craig Kimbrel tossed a 1-2-3 ninth to nail down his 25th save.

The Mets led 3-1 through seven innings but Atlanta's offense came alive in the bottom of the eighth against Jeurys Familia (1-3), who was plagued by three New York errors in the inning.

Justin Upton and Jason Heyward singled to start the frame before Familia fielded a comeback grounder to the mound from Chris Johnson and threw low to second base, allowing all three runners to reach safely with no outs.

Tommy La Stella then smacked a base hit up the middle and the normally sure- handed Juan Lagares fumbled the ball in center as the tying run came across.

The bases were loaded with two outs when Andrelton Simmons chopped one to third base. Eric Campbell jumped and appeared to have the ball in his glove, but it squirted free. He recovered quickly and fired to first, but not in time to record the out. Johnson crossed the plate on the play, giving the Braves a 4-3 lead and chasing Familia from the game.

Dana Eveland came on and walked Freeman to force in the final run.

Zack Wheeler yielded four hits in 6 1/3 innings for the Mets, allowing just a run despite walking five.

The Mets put a run across in each of the first three innings against Wood.

Curtis Granderson smacked the third pitch of the game over the wall in right center for a leadoff home run. Chris Young then opened the second with a single to right and scored two batters later on Travis d'Arnaud's two-bagger to the wall in center.

The Mets loaded the bases in the third on a pair of singles and a walk. Young drove a sacrifice fly to deep center, plating Daniel Murphy for a 3-0 lead.

B.J. Upton and Simmons hit consecutive singles to start the home fifth for Atlanta, putting runners on the corners with no outs. Freeman lifted a sac fly to left to put Atlanta on the board, but Wheeler got Justin Upton to ground into a double-play to limit the Braves to just the one run.

Game Notes

The Braves have won seven of eight ... The Mets have dropped five of six ... Mets third baseman David Wright missed his fourth straight game with a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder ... Granderson and Murphy had two hits apiece in the loss ... Atlanta catcher Evan Gattis will miss at least two weeks after an MRI revealed a bulging thoracic disk.

Preview: Game 83 - Mets at Braves - Wheeler vs Wood

Preview: Game 83
New York Mets (37-45) at Atlanta Braves (44-38)

Probable Pitchers:
Zack Wheeler (3-8, 4.45 ERA) vs Alex Wood (6-6, 3.07 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 7:10 PM


The Atlanta Braves (44-38) moved a half-game in front of Washington in the division with its sixth win in seven games Sunday, 3-2 in Philadelphia. Powered by a four-game sweep of the Phillies, the Braves claimed sole possession of first place for the first time since June 20.

The club is on the verge of matching a season-high, five-game win streak, set April 11-16, but has lost eight of 10 at home.

The Mets have dropped four of five after winning five of six.

New York (37-45) went 2 for 15 with runners in scoring position and left 11 men on base in Sunday's 5-2 loss at Pittsburgh -- the third time in four games it plated two runs.

Wright missed his third straight game because of a bruised rotator cuff in his left shoulder. He's scheduled to be re-evaluated Monday, and manager Terry Collins was optimistic that his star third baseman, who is 11 for 22 in his last five games against Atlanta, could avoid the disabled list.

Braves catcher Evan Gattis is also expected to be re-evaluated after missing three straight games with back spasms.

Teammate Alex Wood (6-6, 3.07 ERA) will try to for another stellar performance in his second start since returning from the minors. In his first major league start since May 4 and first appearance since June 8, the left-hander yielded three hits and a walk in seven innings of Wednesday's 4-0 win in Houston.

Wood went 0-1 with a 4.05 ERA in three starts against the Mets in 2013.

He'll pitch opposite Zack Wheeler (3-8, 4.45), who had a miserable outing his last time out following a dominating performance.

The right-hander was tagged for six runs and six hits in two innings in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to Oakland. He recorded his first shutout -- a three-hitter -- in a 1-0 win in Miami six days earlier.

Wheeler is 0-1 with a 5.73 ERA in two starts against Atlanta this season, the most recent April 20, after going 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA in three matchups in 2013.

Jason Heyward has contributed to some of that trouble this year, going 5 for 6 with a home run. The outfielder, though, is 0 for 14 in his last six games and 1 for 24 in his past nine.

The Mets' Daniel Murphy, batting .341 in his last 10 games, is 4 for 8 against Wood.

Happy Recap: Game 83 - Mets (12) at Brewers (5) - Nieuwenhuis Leads the charge with 4 hits and 5 RBI's, Ike Davis 3 for 5 with 2 RBI's in return, Mets shell out 14 Hits combined

N.Y. Mets (36-47)«23020101312141
Milwaukee (34-51)2001001105123

W: Z. Wheeler (2-1) L: J. Hellweg (0-2)
HR: NYM - None   MIL - J. Francisco (11)


Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 4-for-4 with five RBI and three runs scored to lead the New York Mets to a 12-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game set at Miller Park.

Juan Lagares drove in three runs and Ike Davis went 3-for-5 with two RBI in his first game in the majors since he was demoted to Triple-A earlier this season. John Buck also drove in a run for the Mets, winners in three of their last five games.

Zack Wheeler (2-1) gave up three runs -- one earned -- on seven hits over five innings to earn the win.

Nieuwenhuis became the first Met since Mike Piazza, May 27, 2000, to reach base six times in a nine-inning game.

"I don't know if I've ever done that at any level," he said. "It felt great. It was a good night. I just felt relaxed at the plate."

Carlos Gomez went 4-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI, Juan Francisco hit a solo homer while Aramis Ramirez added am RBI for the Brewers, losers in eight of their last 10 games.

Johnny Hellweg (0-2) was tagged for seven runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and five walks over 3 2/3 innings to absorb the loss.

"He has a great fastball, a nice moving fastball, and a great breaking ball, but he has to command those pitches," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "Unless you can command it in the big leagues, you're not going to do well."

The Mets wasted no time and jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. With the bases loaded, Nieuwenhuis walked to force home Eric Young. Lagares then grounded into a force out, but it was enough to plate David Wright.

Milwaukee, though, came back with a pair of runs of their own in the home half to tie the game. Norichika Aoki singled and Jean Segura reached on Daniel Murphy's fielding error to put two on and no outs for Gomez, who laced a double to right field to score Aoki. Segura also tried to score on the play, but was cut down at the plate after Omar Quintanilla delivered a strike to Buck at home.

Ramirez followed with a sacrifice fly to left push Gomez across.

New York scored three in the second inning. With two on and one out, Davis slapped a single to the left side to score Quintanilla. Nieuwenhuis followed with a two-run single to right to give the Mets a 5-2 lead.

"Tonight was great for us after yesterday," Nieuwenhuis said, referring to a 15-inning loss to Arizona Thursday. "We weren't dragging."

The Mets extended their spread to 7-2 in the fourth. Nieuwenhuis singled home Wright and Davis scored on Ramirez's throwing error to make it a five-run game.

Francisco smacked a solo homer in the fourth inning to make it 7-3.

Buck singled home Nieuwenhuis in the sixth, but Gomez ripped an RBI double in the seventh to keep the Brewers within four runs.

The teams traded RBI singles in the eighth before the Mets busted it open with a three-run ninth inning. Ike Davis got things started with an RBI single to right field. Nieuwenhuis followed with a triple to center to score Davis and Lagares capped the scoring with a base hit to center to give New York the decisive 12-5 advantage.

Josh Edgin pitched the final 1 1/3 innings for his first major league save.

Game Notes

Davis was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier on Friday. To make room on the active roster, pitcher Gonzalez Germen was optioned to Las Vegas ... Nieuwenhuis also walked twice and reached base safely in all six of his plate appearances ... Wright has scored 18 runs over his last 27 games ... Milwaukee fell to 19-24 at home this season.

Right-handed phenom Zack Wheeler gets his fourth crack at a major-league mound on Friday when the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers meet at Miller Park to begin a three-game weekend series.

The sixth overall pick of the 2009 draft by the San Francisco Giants, Wheeler came to New York's organization as part of the trade that sent Carlos Beltran to the west coast in July 2011.

Wheeler debuted in the majors in his native Georgia against the Atlanta Braves and emerged with a 6-1 win after holding the hosts to four hits in six scoreless innings with five walks and seven strikeouts.

The two subsequent outings haven't gone quite as smoothly for the 23-year-old, who's allowed nine runs on 10 hits in just 10 innings against the Chicago White Sox and Washington Nationals.

He allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Nationals on June 30, walking two batters and striking out five in a game the Mets ultimately lost, 13-2.

For the Brewers, righty Johnny Hellweg makes his second start in his third big-league outing.

The 24-year-old Michigan native made his inaugural start at Pittsburgh on June 28, but retired just five batters while allowing five earned runs on six hits in a 10-3 loss to the Pirates.

He made a one-inning relief appearance for the Brewers three days later and allowed one earned run on two hits in a 10-5 loss at Washington.

Happy Recap: Game 83 - Phillies at Mets - Mets Comeback to Beat Phillies 6-5

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

Philadelphia (37-47)1101020005130
N.Y. Mets (45-38) «0110200026100

W: B. Parnell (2-1) L: J. Papelbon (2-3)
HR: PHI - None   NYM - S. Hairston (12),D. Wright (11)

David Wright homered and knocked in four runs, including the game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning, as the New York Mets edged the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-5, in the rubber match of a three-game set at Citi Field.

Scott Hairston also hit a home run for New York, which won for the sixth time in eight games.

Bobby Parnell (2-1) tossed a perfect top of the ninth to earn the win in relief of starter R.A. Dickey, who allowed five rune on a career-high tying 11 hits and a walk over seven innings. Dickey also struck out seven and stretched his unbeaten streak to 14 straight starts.

Jonathan Papelbon (2-3) gave up a pair of runs on three hits and a walk in his second blown save of the season for the Phillies, who have dropped seven of their last eight.

Cole Hamels surrendered four runs on seven hits and a walk in a seven-inning start, while Jimmy Rollins had three hits, two RBI and a run scored in defeat.

Wright's two-run home run in the fifth inning gave New York its first lead of the game, but Philadelphia answered with two runs in the sixth to go back on top.

Hamels started the rally with a one-out single and rounded the bases on Rollins' triple into the right-field corner. Juan Pierre followed with a squeeze bunt to plate Rollins and give the Phillies a 5-4 advantage.

Philadelphia failed to add an insurance run in the eighth inning when Mike Fontenot was throw out at the plate by Hairston on Chase Utley's pinch-hit single to left field, and New York capitalized in the bottom of the ninth against Papelbon.

Ike Davis opened the frame with a double to left-center field and pinch-runner Ronny Cedeno quickly moved to third on Josh Thole's sacrifice bunt. Papelbon fanned Kirk Nieuwenhuis for the second out of the inning, but then hit Jordany Valdespin with a 3-2 pitch and walked Ruben Tejada to load the bases.

R. Dickey (R) 16 12-1 2.156.06-01.856/29@LADW8.0302-023.01.96

R.A. Dickey leads the majors in wins and his staggering unbeaten string has made him an All-Star for the first time.

Extending that streak may strengthen his case to be the NL's starter.

The knuckleballer looks to become the first New York Mets pitcher to win 13 games prior to the break in 22 years Thursday night when he faces fellow All-Star Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia Phillies.

Dickey (12-1, 2.15 ERA) has harnessed his baffling pitch to improbably become one of the best pitchers in baseball in 2012. Already with a career high in wins, the 37-year-old right-hander ranks among the major league leaders in ERA, strikeouts (116) and opponent batting average (.190).

"The metaphor I would give is that if a traditional knuckleball is a butterfly, mine is more like a butterfly on steroids," Dickey said. "It's more like a mosquito or a hummingbird than a butterfly, because of the velocity. It comes in and breaks late at the plate. It darts more and it's in and out of the strike zone. Phil Niekro once told me I had an 'angry' knuckleball."

That pitch is the major reason he's unbeaten since losing at Atlanta on April 18, going 10-0 with a 1.51 ERA in his last 13 outings. That includes five wins in six June starts behind a 0.93 ERA while fanning 55 in 48 1-3 innings, earning NL pitcher of the month honors.

Dickey seems like a front-runner to get the starting nod in next week's All-Star game.

Final Score: NY Yankees 5, NY Mets 2

Robinson Cano hit a two-run triple to back six strong innings from Bartolo Colon, as the New York Yankees downed the Mets, 5-2, in the second edition of this three-game inter-league set.

Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with two doubles and a solo homer, and Curtis Granderson added a solo shot for the Yankees, who have won a season-high seven consecutive games, including the first two in this series.

Activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to the contest after suffering a left hamstring strain, Colon (6-3) yielded five hits while fanning six to win his fourth straight start.

Jason Bay and Lucas Duda drove in a run each for the Mets, losers of three straight. Dillon Gee (8-2) was tagged in defeat for seven hits and four runs over seven full frames, striking out seven with three walks.

Granderson snapped the scoreless deadlock with a one-out homer to right-center in the sixth. Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez followed with singles and Cano plated both with a triple. Nick Swisher's sacrifice fly to left made it 4-0.

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 83 - Yankees at Mets (Subway Series)

Bartolo  is in good shape
New York Yankees (49-31) at New York Mets (41-41), 4:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Yankees - Bartolo Colon (5-3, 3.10) NY Mets - Dillon Gee (8-1, 3.32)

Bartolo Colon returns from the disabled list this afternoon when the New York Yankees play the middle test of the three-game Subway Series against the Mets at Citi Field,

One of the more pleasant surprises for the Yankees this season, Colon has been sidelined since suffering a strained left hamstring during a June 11 start against Cleveland.

The 38-year-old right-hander took part in a simulated game on Monday in Tampa and threw a bullpen session before Thursday's win over Milwaukee. He owns a record of 5-3 with a 3.10 earned run average in 13 appearances, including 10 starts, in his first season with the Yankees.

After missing the 2010 season with arm problems, Colon has displayed the form that won him the American League Cy Young with the Angels six years ago. He earned his third straight win in the outing against Cleveland and in the three starts before going on the DL he had allowed just three runs on 12 hits in 21 innings.
