Happy Recap: Game 90 - Braves (3) at Mets (8) - deGrom Masterful, Mets Hit - Mets Win!



New York

W: J. deGrom (2-5) L: J. Teheran (8-6)
HR: ATL - None   NYM - C. Granderson (14)


Rookie Jacob deGrom tied his career-high with 11 strikeouts over seven shutout innings and the New York Mets rolled to an 8-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.

Seven players knocked in at least one run for the Mets, who scored the first five runs off All-Star Julio Teheran to open the four-game series with back- to-back wins.

DeGrom (2-5) gave up seven hits and didn't allow a walk, throwing 73 of his 108 pitches for strikes, and Curtis Granderson hit his second homer of the series.

The right-hander's last start also was against the Braves, a 3-1 loss on July 2 in which he gave up three runs in the first inning. He also faced Teheran in that one.

The Braves have lost three in a row on the heels of a nine-game winning streak and dropped into a virtual tie for first place with Washington in the NL East because the Nationals' game against Baltimore was rained out Tuesday night.

Teheran (8-6) went just 3 1/3 innings two days after he was named to his first All-Star team. The right-hander gave up five runs, 11 hits and two walks, snapping a two-start winning streak.

Granderson tied Monday night's game with a solo homer in the eighth inning and drove Teheran's second pitch Tuesday off the facade of the second deck above right field for a 1-0 Mets lead.

They tacked on three runs in the second inning, the first two on Daniel Murphy's double to the left-center field gap. Murphy then scored on David Wright's single.

Eric Young Jr. had New York's 10th hit, an RBI single in the third inning to make it 5-0 after the Braves turned a double play.

Murphy doubled and scored on Lucas Duda's double off David Hale in the sixth inning and Kirk Nieuwenhuis had a pinch-hit double off David Carpenter in the seventh to make it 7-0.

Atlanta scored after deGrom came out. Andrelton Simmons drew a one-out walk off Buddy Carlyle, went to second on Justin Upton's single and scored on Jason Heyward's base hit off Dana Eveland.

Duda doubled and scored on Juan Lagares' single in the bottom of the eighth to restore New York's seven-run lead.

As a storm approached and trash blew across the field, the Braves loaded the bases against Eveland in the ninth inning and Freddie Freeman hit a two-run single off Jeurys Familia.

Game Notes

The Mets reached 4,000 all-time wins ... Granderson hit his 14th homer of the season ... The Mets have won three in a row and are 4-1 since being swept in Atlanta last week ... The other 11-strikeout performance from deGrom came May 31 at Philadelphia.

Can the Mets Beat him?

Julio Teheran looks to continue his dominance of the Mets and beat them for the second time in less than a week while preventing the Atlanta Braves from losing their third straight.

Teheran (8-5, 2.29 ERA) owns an ERA and a 0.95 WHIP that rank among the lowest in the National League, and he's tied with Aaron Harang for the team lead in wins. That's reason enough for him to get the call as one of three Braves (49-40) named to the NL roster for next Tuesday's All-Star game in Minneapolis.

Tipping his cap during introductions will be the extent of his involvement, though, since he's scheduled to start Sunday against the Chicago Cubs.

The 23-year-old right-hander has looked every bit like an All-Star lately, compiling a 1.86 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 29 innings while going 2-1 in four starts. He's won his last two while allowing two earned runs and fanning 14 batters in 14 innings.

That includes a 3-1 win over New York on Wednesday, when Teheran yielded one run and four hits in seven innings to complete a three-game series sweep in Atlanta.

He's 2-0 with a 1.44 ERA in four career starts against the Mets, including three visits to Queens.

Atlanta may need another strong outing from Teheran after following a season-high nine-game winning streak with back-to-back defeats, including Monday's 4-3, 11-inning loss in the opener of this four-game set.

The Braves are 2 for 18 with runners in scoring position over the last two games, going 1 for 11 while stranding 11 runners against the Mets (40-49).

Freddie Freeman, who will join Teheran and closer Craig Kimbrel in Minneapolis, is looking to continue hitting the ball hard. The first baseman has a .391 average with 11 RBIs and 17 runs over the past 18 games after doubling on one of his three hits Monday.

He routinely pounds Mets pitching to the tune of a .325 career average. Freeman is hitting .429 with 18 RBIs over the past 16 meetings, including 16 for 30 in the past seven at Citi Field.

The Mets will again counter Teheran with rookie Jacob deGrom (1-5, 3.77), who allowed three runs in the first inning before tossing four scoreless and leaving with eight strikeouts in his first meeting with the Braves on Wednesday.

He's done that in each of his four starts at home, compiling a 2.49 ERA. However, deGrom is 0-3 over that stretch since he's been backed by five total runs.

The 2.56 run support average he's received on the season is the lowest for any Mets starter with at least five starts.

The Mets as a team are batting .176 vs Teheran. Both Lucas Duda and David Wright have a HR vs him. Eric Young Jr. is leading the Mets in AVG vs Teheran batting .444 (4 for 9).

G. Cole (R) 6 4-2 3.686.03-23.867/9OAKL7.0521-218.13.93


The Pittsburgh Pirates will head into the All-Star break with their highest win total in more than 40 years and Sunday they can complete a three-game sweep of the New York Mets.

Fans at PNC Park and in the Steel City have plenty to be excited about with the Pirates. Their 56 victories prior to the All-Star break are the most for the team since they had a team-record 57 in 1971, the year the Buccos won the World Series.

Their 4-2 win last night boosted the Pirates into a tie atop the NL Central with the St. Louis Cardinals.

"We have to get ready for the next half, but we're not focused on that now. We're focused on (Sunday)," said Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen, who delivered a game-tying home run in the sixth, then knocked in the go-ahead score an inning later.

Lefty Jeff Locke was scratched from his scheduled start today due to lower back tightness. Locke was also removed from the National League roster for Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Right-hander Gerrit Cole will get the nod instead. Cole, the first overall pick in the 2011 draft, owns a 4-2 record and a 3.68 ERA over six starts for the Pirates during his rookie campaign. He has lost his last two starts, most recently allowing five hits and a pair of runs over seven innings against Oakland Tuesday.

Andrew McCutchen delivered a game-tying home run in the sixth, then knocked in the go-ahead score an inning later to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates over the New York Mets, 4-2, on Saturday.

Pittsburgh has taken the first two tilts of this three-game set, both by breaking through against New York's bullpen.

Greg Burke (0-2) issued a pair of singles in the seventh before McCutchen's base hit broke a 2-2 tie. Russell Martin later drew a walk with the bases loaded to cap the frame.

Three Pirate relievers combined for 3 1/3 innings of one-hit ball, with Justin Wilson (6-1) picking up the victory after taking over for starter A.J. Burnett, who struck out eight and gave up two runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 frames.

"You never want to come out of a game, but you feel pretty good with these guys coming in behind you," said Burnett about the bullpen.

Marlon Byrd scored on Kirk Nieuwenhuis's double and knocked in a run to account for New York's only offense.

Carlos Torres took the mound for Matt Harvey, who was skipped with looming speculation he will start Tuesday's All-Star game, but also in an effort to curtail his amount of innings and ease an apparent blister issue on his hand.

Torres carried his effectiveness from the bullpen into the spot start, his first in nearly three years, and tossed five innings of one-run ball while striking out five. He has a 0.79 ERA over 11 appearances this season.

Byrd drew a one-out walk in the fourth, sprinted around the base pads when Nieuwenhuis smacked a double into the gap in right center and beat the relay throw home to give New York a 1-0 lead.

He then legged out an infield single with two away in the fifth to make it 2-0 and salvage an inning which saw Eric Young Jr. get thrown out at the plate and Ike Davis strike out swinging with runners on second and third.

Torres allowed only one hit through his first four innings of work, but served up three in a row to start the fifth, including an RBI single from Jordy Mercer, who had the game-winning hit in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning victory.

An inning-ending double play from Jose Tabata would quell an opportunity with the bases loaded for Pittsburgh, but McCutchen knocked in a run in the sixth and seventh innings to give his team the lead.

With Torres out and David Aardsma on the hill, McCutchen planted a pitch into the seats in straight away center to even the score at 2-2. Then, while facing Burke the following frame, he ripped a two-out single past the diving reach of David Wright at third to stake the Pirates to a one-run lead.

"Tool for tool, maybe the best player in the league," said Mets manager Terry Collins about McCutchen. "He plays the game the right way, he plays hard...I always tell people he's one of the guys I'd pay to see."

Josh Edgin entered from the bullpen afterward and proceeded to walk the next two batters, forcing in a run and making it 4-2 Pittsburgh.

Gonzalez Germen took over on the hill and got Gaby Sanchez to pop out in foul territory to end the inning, but New York never had another base runner, with Jason Grilli notching his 29th save with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Game Notes

The Pirates are one win shy from tying their franchise mark set in 1971 for most wins (57) before the All-Star break .. Torres' last start was on Aug. 3, 2010 while with Chicago White Sox ... New York's David Wright went 0-for-5, ending his 12-game hit streak ... Pittsburgh's scheduled starter in Sunday's series finale, Jeff Locke, was scratched due to back tightness. Instead, Gerrit Cole will take the mound for the Pirates opposite Dillon Gee.

Carlos Torres takes the place of Matt Harvey in the rotation Saturday night for the New York Mets as they continue a three-game set against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

Harvey, who is the likely choice to start Tuesday's All-Star Game at Citi Field, was scratched from his start. Mets manager Terry Collins cited a blister on the young phenom's right index finger and an increasing workload as the main factors in the decision. Collins did say the blister will not affect Harvey's ability for the All-Star contest.

Torres, a 30-year-old right-hander, steps in to make only the seventh start of his career in his 55th contest. It will be his 11th appearance of this season and first start. His last start came Aug. 2, 2010 with the White Sox and he took a 7-1 loss against the Tigers at Comerica Park. He currently holds a 12 2/3 inning scoreless stretch.

A.J. Burnett, who has just one win his last eight starts, counters for the Pirates. The 36-year-old righty has pitched two straight games against the Cubs, including a no-decision on Sunday. That was his first game back from the disabled list after being sidelined a month due to a right calf strain.

Burnett, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in 14 of his first 15 starts, is 0-2 in his last four home starts. His last victory at PNC Park was May 3 against Washington.

Recap: Game 90 - Mets at Nationals - Mets continue the losing... in 10th Inning, 5-4

W: R. Mattheus (3-1) L: T. Byrdak (2-1)
HR: NYM - J. Valdespin (5)   WAS - T. Moore (5)

Ryan Zimmerman scored on a wild pitch in the 10th inning as the Washington Nationals took a wild 5-4 win over the New York Mets in the opener of a three-game series.

The Mets had taken a 4-3 lead in the top of the 10th on a Josh Thole RBI double, but the Nationals quickly tied it off of Tim Byrdak (2-1).

Jhonatan Solano singled to lead off the inning and moved to second on a sac bunt from Steve Lombardozzi. Bryce Harper then tied the game with a blistering triple to right field. Intentional walks to Zimmerman and Ian Desmond loaded the bases and Adam LaRoche hit into a fielder's choice that saw Harper forced out at home.

Pedro Beato then came on to face Tyler Moore and uncorked a pitch that got away from Thole and Zimmerman easily trotted home for the win.

The wild pitch made a winner out of Ryan Mattheus (3-1), who got the final out of the 10th inning. Ross Detwiler was in line for the win after pitching seven shutout innings that saw him give up just five hits while striking out four, but Tyler Clippard gave up the lead in the ninth inning.

Moore hit a solo home run while Danny Espinosa and Lombardozzi each drove in a run for the Nationals, who were coming off a four-game split with Miami.

Jordany Valdespin belted a pinch-hit three-run home run in the ninth inning while David Wright went 2-for-5 with a run scored for the Mets, who have dropped five straight. Jon Niese bounced back from a rough previous start that saw him give up seven runs as on Tuesday he yielded just one run on three hits with eight strikeouts over seven innings.

The Nationals held a 2-0 lead going into the ninth, but Clippard gave it up. Thole singled to start and Wright followed with a base hit. After Scott Hairston struck out, Valdespin clubbed a 1-2 changeup that hit off the top of the wall in right-center. An umpire review confirmed the on-field call and it was a 3-2 game.

The Nationals, though, sent the game to extras. Bobby Parnell was on the hill to close the game and got the first out, but Michael Morse singled and LaRoche followed suit with a single. After Moore struck out, Espinosa singled to center to tie the game.

In the 10th, Mike Gonzalez was on the hill for Washington and immediately gave up an infield single to David Murphy. A sac bunt from Kirk Nieuwenhuis moved Murphy to second, but Ruben Tejada flied out for the second out of the inning. However, Thole punched a double to left to score Murphy and give the Mets a 4-3 lead.

Moore's homer in the fifth was the only run of the game until Lombardozzi doubled home Mark DeRosa in the eighth inning.

Game Notes

Valdespin has just three hits in 20 at-bats as a pinch hitter this season, but all three hits have been home runs...Washington has won five of the seven games against New York this season...Jordan Zimmermann pitches for the Nationals on Wednesday while Chris Young will take the hill for the Mets.

Recap: Game 90 - Mets at Giants - Lincecum enough to tame Mets

Final Score: San Francisco 3, New York 1

The Giants scored twice in the first inning and it proved to be enough for Tim Lincecum and the bullpen, as San Francisco eked by the New York Mets, 3-1, in the middle installment of a three-game series.

Lincecum (7-7) lasted six innings and gave up one run on four hits and four walks to win for just the second time in eight starts. Santiago Casilla, Javier Lopez and Sergio Romo combined to keep New York silent over the final three frames.

Pablo Sandoval extended his hitting streak to 20 games, going 2-for-4 with an RBI for San Francisco, which has won three of its last four.

Chris Capuano (8-8) yielded a pair of runs on four hits and four walks in a six-inning start to take the loss.

"[Capuano] gave us a chance to win, that's all you can ask," Mets third baseman Daniel Murphy said. "He threw the ball well."

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 90 - Mets at Giants

New York Mets (46-43) at San Francisco Giants (50-40), 9:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Chris Capuano (8-7, 4.19) San Francisco - Tim Lincecum (6-7, 3.14)

With five wins in their last six games, the Mets have been playing good baseball of late, and Chris Capuano is one of the reasons New York is three games over .500.

The 32-year-old left-hander gets back on the mound tonight when the Mets continue their weekend series against the Giants. Capuano is just 1-4 with a 5.31 ERA against the Giants and hasn't won in three decisions (6.11 ERA) at AT&T Park. But maybe his recent stretch will turn fate into fortune.

Capuano has won three consecutive starts and five of his last six outings. Most recently, he threw six innings in a 5-2 road victory over the Dodgers on Monday.

Countering on the hill for the Giants will be Tim Lincecum, who is going in the opposite direction of Capuano. He's 1-3 over his last seven appearances, but has received little run support. San Francisco has put up three runs or less in each of his last five outings.

Lincecum limited the Padres to three runs over five innings in a 5-3 loss on Monday. The righty, who has compiled 25 strikeouts over his last three starts, is 2-1 with a 3.07 ERA in six starts against the Mets.

On Friday, Scott Hairston hit a go-ahead, pinch-hit home run off Brian Wilson in the ninth inning to push the Mets over the Giants, 5-2.
