Happy Recap: Game 93 - Marlins (1) at Mets (7) - Mets have a Zack Attack



New York

W: Z. Wheeler (5-8) L: H. Alvarez (6-4)
HR: MIA - None   NYM - L. Duda (14),D. Wright (8)


Zack Wheeler continued his stellar pitching against the Miami Marlins, helping his New York Mets to a 7-1 win in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Wheeler (5-8), who entered the game with a 0.96 ERA in four career starts against Miami, allowed just one run on five hits with six strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings.

In his last outing against the Marlins on June 19, Wheeler hurled his first career complete game, limiting his opposition to three hits in a 1-0 win.

David Wright went 4-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored for New York, which has won five of its last six.

Lucas Duda also homered and Juan Lagares added a pair of hits with an RBI in the win.

Miami starter Hector Alvarez (6-4) has also had success against his NL East rival, however, that wasn't the case in this matchup. Alvarez was charged with six runs on eight hits over five innings of work.

The right-hander went 4-0 with a 1.01 ERA over his last five starts against New York prior to getting lit up on Friday.

Miami, which won the last 10 games Alvarez appeared on the hill, has lost three of its last four overall.

Lagares doubled to right with two outs in the second before Ruben Tejada knocked him in with a single to center. Wheeler then slapped an opposite-field double to left to help his own cause and give the Mets a 2-0 lead.

Wright singled with one away in the third and Duda cranked his 14th homer of the season in the next at-bat to increase the margin to 4-0.

A pair of defensive gems kept the Marlins off the board in the fourth.

With one out and a runner on first, Casey McGehee laced a double into the left-field corner. Kirk Nieuwenhuis quickly got to the ball, sliding feet first to cut it off from hitting the wall, and fired a seed to Tejada, who whipped the relay throw to Travis d'Arnaud in time to get Donovan Solano at the plate.

McGehee advanced to third on the play and Garrett Jones followed with a perfect bunt down the third-base line. Wheeler hustled off the mound and just got Jones on a bang-bang play at first to end the frame.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia walked and Adeiny Hechavarria singled to put two on with one out in the fifth. Alvarez struck out on a foul bunt trying to move the two over, but Christian Yelich picked his pitcher up with a single to left that plated Saltalamacchia.

The run snapped Wheeler's streak of 20 scoreless innings against the Marlins.

After a groundout from Curtis Granderson in the fifth, Daniel Murphy singled to center and Wright drove him in with his eighth homer of the season to stake the Mets to a 6-1 cushion.

The Mets added some more insurance in the sixth as Nieuwenhuis led off the inning with a triple to center and scored on Tejada's single a batter later.

Wheeler exited the game after 114 pitches and let his bullpen do the rest. Josh Edgin picked up the final out in the seventh and the first of the eighth, then Vic Black worked around a two-out single from Giancarlo Stanton to set up Jeurys Familia's scoreless ninth.

Game Notes

Miami's 10 straight wins in Alvarez's starts is a team record ... Alvarez entered the game with 18 1/3 scoreless innings against the Mets ... The Marlins went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position ... Mew York finished 2- for-4 with RISP ... New York's Daisuke Matsuzaka will oppose Tom Koehler in the middle game on Saturday.

TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 7:10 PM


The Marlins are looking for an 11th straight win with Henderson Alvarez on the mound as he attempts to continue his dominance of the New York Mets in the opener of a three-game set at Citi Field on Friday night.

Alvarez (6-3, 2.27 ERA) is fourth in the NL in ERA, including a 1.04 mark over his last nine outings while going 4-0. His last 10 starts have ended in Marlins victories, the longest active streak in the majors and a team record.

Alvarez was dazzling again as he won Sunday, yielding one run in seven innings of an 8-4 victory at St. Louis, and he would seem to be in line for a similar outing against the Mets (42-50).

He's 4-0 with a 1.01 ERA over his last five starts against them and has held them scoreless in 18 1/3 consecutive innings dating to April 25. That's the second-longest streak by a Marlin in the all-time series to Tom Koehler's 19, set earlier this season.

Alvarez has won his last two starts against New York behind 15 1/3 shutout innings, including a 3-2 victory June 20. That was the Marlins' only win in a four-game home set, during which they batted .205 while scoring eight runs -- none in two games.

Miami (44-47) went 1 for 21 with runners in scoring position while dropping two of three at Arizona, falling 4-3 in 10 innings in Wednesday's finale. The offense came through with two runs in the 10th, but closer Steve Cishek gave up three in the bottom half.

The Mets had a season-high four-game winning streak snapped with Thursday's 3-1 loss to Atlanta, as they were held to five hits -- four singles.

David Wright drove in the lone New York run, and he owns a .373 average over his last 16 games against Miami. He's 6 for 16 with two doubles off Alvarez, getting four of those hits -- one double -- in 10 at-bats this year.

Like Alvarez, Zack Wheeler (4-8, 4.07) is looking to continue his dominance in this all-time series. The right-hander owns a 0.96 ERA in four career starts against the Marlins, but has just a 1-0 record since he's been backed by five total runs.

Wheeler didn't need much from the offense June 19, when he tossed a three-hitter in a 1-0 victory at Miami for his first complete game. His scoreless streak against the Marlins of 16 innings is one out shy of Dillon Gee's mark for the longest active streak by a Met.

Wheeler has allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings in each of his last two starts, and he got just his second win in seven outings Sunday in an 8-4 home win over Texas.

Happy Recap: Game 93 - Phillies (4) at Mets (5) - Parnell survives the ninth for win

W: G. Germen (1-1) L: C. Hamels (4-12) S: B. Parnell (18)
HR: PHI - J. Rollins (5),C. Utley (13)   NYM - None


Five different Mets knocked in a run and New York rattled Cole Hamels during a three-run first inning before holding on late to a 5-4 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field.

Daniel Murphy and Marlon Byrd each had two hits and Juan Lagares went 3-for-5, all driving in a run apiece to help the Mets end the Phillies' seven-game run over the club in Queens.

David Wright and Anthony Recker each recorded an RBI as well, and the Mets survived in the ninth after Bobby Parnell served up a two-run homer to Chase Utley to secure a split of the first two tilts in this three-game set.

Zack Wheeler struggled with his command and exited with the bases loaded after working 4 2/3 innings, but Gonzalez Germen (1-1) put out the fire by recording the final out of the fifth.

Philadelphia put up 13 runs to capture the series opener on Friday, but the offense stalled in Saturday's middle test, going 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

Hamels (4-12) has never lost so many games in a season over the course of his career. He was lifted after five innings, charged with four runs on seven hits in the setback.

Jimmy Rollins yanked Wheeler's third pitch of the game just clear of the right-field wall to open up the early advantage for the Phillies, but Hamels failed to maintain it while struggling through a 34-pitch first inning.

Murphy roped a one-out double against the lefty and swiped third as Wright worked a walk. Byrd then lined the first pitch he saw into left to even the score at 1-1.

The Mets plated two more after Hamels walked another in Josh Satin. Lagares drove in Wright with a looper over the head of Utley at second and Recker beat out a double-play ball to make it 3-1 New York.

The Phillies had an excellent opportunity against Wheeler in the fifth after their first three batters of the frame reached base, however they only came away with a sacrifice fly from Utley.

Wheeler departed at 106 pitches after reloading the bases on a two-out walk to Darin Ruf, however Germen took over and fanned Delmon Young on five pitches to avoid further trouble.

New York got the run back in home portion of the fifth, with Eric Young Jr. scoring on a sharp line-drive single from Wright, then tacked on another in the seventh on Murphy's RBI base hit to go ahead 5-2.

Parnell recorded the first two outs of the ninth easily before an error on Satin allowed the frame to continue. Utley then crushed a 2-2 offering well into the right-field seats to make it 5-4.

Domonic Brown reached with a double to put the tying run in scoring position, but Parnell got Ruf to line out hard to second to end the game.

Game Notes

Rollins went 2-for-5 and pushed his hitting streak against New York to 16 games. His homer was his first in 162 at-bats ... The Phils were attempting to match their longest winning streak in Flushing, last set from May 1-Sept. 11, 1980 ... Murphy extended his hitting streak to 10 games.

After gaining just two victories over his first 16 starts, Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels has found a groove and other teams have been hard-pressed to solve the three-time All-Star.

Hamels tries to win his third consecutive decision when the Phillies continue a three-game series against the New York Mets at Citi Field Saturday afternoon.

Over his last three starts, Hamels has given up a total of four earned runs, covering 23 innings. His last defeat came June 21 to the Mets at Citizens Bank Park.

The Mets have certainly been tough on Hamels as evidenced by his 6-11 mark in 23 career starts against the NL East rival. That includes a 4.28 ERA.

Rookie right-hander Zack Wheeler, who has won his last two starts, counters for the Mets. He allowed only three hits and a run over seven innings at San Francisco on July 10.

This will mark the second career start at Citi Field for Wheeler, who suffered his only career loss in the Mets' 13-2 defeat against the Nationals on June 30 in Flushing.

The Phillies are over .500 for the first time in more than a month and have climbed into second place in the NL East, a half-game ahead of Washington, but 6 1/2 behind first-place Atlanta. A win today would give the Phillies their fifth straight series triumph.

Recap: Game 93 - Dodgers at Mets - Santana gets manhandled at Citi Field

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

L.A. Dodgers (50-44) «3120001007102
N.Y. Mets (47-46)2000112006100

W: A. Harang (7-5) L: J. Santana (6-7)
S: K. Jansen (17)

HR: LAD - M. Kemp (14),L. Cruz (1)   NYM - J. Valdespin (6)

Matt Kemp and Luis Cruz both clubbed two-run homers, as the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the New York Mets, 7-6, in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Andre Ethier, Juan Rivera and Jerry Hairston were also credited with an RBI for the Dodgers, while starter Aaron Harang (7-5) gave up three runs -- one earned -- on four hits and three walks in five innings.

Daniel Murphy collected four hits, including two doubles, and knocked in a run for the Mets, who halted a six-game losing streak with Thursday's win at Washington.

Johan Santana (6-7) was tagged for six runs on seven hits and three walks in three full frames. It marked the third straight start that the New York left- hander has surrendered at least six runs.

The Mets were trailing 7-4 in the seventh when Ike Davis hit a one-out single off reliever Shawn Tolleson. Jordany Valdespin then came off the bench and delivered a two-run homer to left field.

Ronald Belisario pitched around a two-out single by Murphy in the eighth and Kenley Jansen overcame a throwing error by the third baseman Hairston in the ninth to notch his 17th save of the season.

It was a productive first inning for Los Angeles, which put up a three-spot against a pitcher who had given up just two runs while winning all five of his previous career outings versus the Dodgers. Santana shut out Los Angeles over eight innings on June 30.

Bobby Abreu led off the game with a single and came home on Kemp's 14th home run of the year, a one-out drive to left-center field. The Los Angeles center fielder also homered in his last at-bat on Wednesday, snapping a four- game skid with his 12th-inning blast off Philadelphia's Jake Diekman.

Ethier followed with a double down the left-field line and scored on Hairston's two-out single to center.

The Mets got two runs back in their half of the first on sacrifice flies by David Wright and Davis. Ruben Tejada reached on a fielding error by Hairston to open the frame and Murphy stroked a double before the pair scored on consecutive fly balls.

Los Angeles extended its lead in the second on a bases-loaded walk to Ethier, and Cruz's first major league home run made it 6-2 in the third.

New York trimmed its deficit to three in the fifth when Murphy plated Tejada with a double. The Mets were threatening for more runs, but Harang fanned Lucas Duda with men on the corners to end the inning.

Scott Hairston singled home Andres Torres to draw the Mets closer after six frames. But the Dodgers went ahead 7-4 in the seventh as Ethier worked a one- out walk, stole second and scored on Rivera's ground ball up the middle.

Game Notes

Valdespin improved to 4-for-22 as a pinch-hitter this season, with all four of his hits being home runs. His four pinch-hit home runs tie the club single- season mark set by Danny Heep in 1983 and matched by Mark Carreon six years later...Los Angeles began a 10-game road trip...The Mets took three of four from June 28-July 1 at Dodger Stadium...Wright went 0-for-3, snapping his home hitting streak at 16 games...The Mets traded infielder Omar Quintanilla to the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations. Quintanilla had been designated for assignment earlier in the week.

Matchup Report vs Johan Santana:

The Mets have a weapon in Johan Santana vs the Dodgers tonight. The Dodgers have only hit .150 off the left hander . The Mets have to be careful with Matt Kemp , who is batting .333 (4 for 12) and Bobby Abreu, who is batting .375 off Santana.. The rest of the team is batting .250 or lower off Johan.

The Mets who matchup well vs Harang and Santana who owns the Dodgers could be a good key for the Mets success tonight..

Johan Santana continued his domination of the Los Angeles Dodgers last month, but hasn't been the same since.

Santana will try to put aside a pair of ugly losses and improve to 6-0 against the Dodgers in Friday night's opener of a three-game home set for the New York Mets.

Santana (6-6, 3.59 ERA) yielded three hits over eight innings in a 5-0 victory at Los Angeles (49-44) on June 30. He has allowed two runs over 35 2-3 innings against the Dodgers for a 0.50 ERA in winning all five career outings versus them.

Los Angeles was missing Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Mark Ellis in last month's matchup. All three are back now, with Kemp's 4-for-12 career numbers against Santana the best of the trio while Ellis is 1 for 14 and Ethier 0 for 6.

The left-hander has allowed totals of 13 runs and 21 hits over 9 2-3 innings in two defeats since beating the Dodgers. He felt umpiring was the difference Sunday after all six runs he yielded came in the fifth inning of a 6-1 loss at Atlanta.

"We felt that we threw good pitches and didn't get the call," said Santana, who is 4-2 with a 2.14 ERA at home.

Neither the Mets nor the Dodgers are playing well, although both ended losing streaks in their latest games.

Happy Recap : Game 93 - Phillies at Mets - Scott Hairston Powers Mets to Victory!

Hairston connects with a  3-run HR
Final Score: New York 11, Philadelphia 2

Jonathon Niese pitched seven solid innings and the Mets knocked Cole Hamels out in the fifth, as New York crushed the Philadelphia Phillies, 11-2, in the second meeting of a three-game series.

Niese (9-7) gave up two runs -- one earned -- on six hits and was backed by an offense that thrived facing its fifth All-Star in six games.

Scott Hairston doubled twice, homered and drove in a career-high five runs, while Daniel Murphy also went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI to lead the surge and snap the Mets' three-game slide.

Hamels (11-5) lasted just 4 1/3 innings and gave up a career-high tying seven runs. The left-hander walked four and allowed eight hits in the setback.

Philadelphia, which had won three of four coming in, scored 14 runs in each of Hamels' previous two outings, but it was the Mets who broke out their big bats on Saturday.

Philadelphia Phillies (58-34) at New York Mets (46-46), 4:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Philadelphia - Cole Hamels (11-4, 2.32) New York - Jonathon Niese (8-7, 3.88)

For how dominant Phillies starter Cole Hamels has been in his career, the New York Mets seem to have the left-hander's number.

Hamels draws the assignment this afternoon against the Mets in the second portion of a three-game series at Citi Field. He was hammered by the Mets in his season debut on April 5, when he allowed six runs and seven hits in a season-worst 2 2/3 innings. Hamels rebounded in a 5-2 win on May 28 at New York, hurling seven innings of two-run ball with 10 K's, but is still just 3-9 in 15 career starts in this matchup.

The 2008 World Series MVP is 7-2 with a 1.72 earned run average in his last 11 starts and the Phillies have scored 14 runs in each of his previous two trips to the mound. Hamels fired eight innings of two-run ball in a 14-2 win at Florida on July 5, then held Atlanta to one run and three hits in eight innings of last Sunday's 14-1 triumph, improving to 11-4 with a 2.32 ERA in 19 overall starts.

Hamels has made eight road starts this season, going 5-1 with a 2.20 ERA.

Philadelphia handed the Mets a 7-2 loss in Friday's series opener, as youngster John Mayberry recorded a pair of hits and a career-high five RBI to lead the charge. Mayberry was recently called up from the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Raul Ibanez homered and starting pitcher Vance Worley, another Lehigh Valley prospect, helped his own cause with an RBI groundout.

Worley earned the win on the hill with 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball and scattered three hits to push his record to 5-1 this season.
