Happy Recap: Game 94 - Marlins (4) at Mets (5) - Comeback Game of the Year, So Far



New York

W: V. Black (2-2) L: M. Dunn (7-5) S: J. Mejia (10)
HR: MIA - C. Yelich (8)   NYM - C. Young (8)


Eric Campbell's RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted the New York Mets to a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins in the second game of three from Citi Field.

The Mets worked a two-out rally in the eighth to secure their sixth win in seven games. Travis d'Arnaud doubled to left off Mike Dunn (7-5) to set up Campbell, who pinch-hit for Kirk Nieuwenhuis and poked the game-winning hit into center.

"Everyone always says hitting is contagious," said Campbell. "That's the kind of roll we're on right now. We're all getting big hits and driving in runs."

Vic Black (2-2) earned the win for a scoreless inning of relief and Jenrry Mejia closed the door in the ninth for his 10th save of the season.

Chris Young homered in the win, while Ruben Tejada and Juan Lagares each knocked in a run.

Christian Yelich hit a solo home run for the Marlins, who have lost four of their last five. Marcell Ozuna, Donovan Solano and Garrett Jones each had an RBI in the setback.

Miami broke the scoreless tie in the third thanks to Mets third baseman David Wright's 11th error of the season.

Adeiny Hechavarria led off the inning with a double to left and moved over to third on pitcher Tom Koehler's sacrifice bunt. Yelich walked to put runners at the corners before Solano ripped a grounder to third that was too much to handle for Wright.

New York starter Daisuke Matsuzaka did work out of the jam, however, by striking out Giancarlo Stanton and Casey McGehee.

With two outs in the top of the fifth, Yelich clubbed his eighth homer of the season to increase Miami's lead to 2-0.

New York answered with two runs in the home fifth to tie the game.

D'Arnaud singled up the middle to begin the rally, New York's first hit off Koehler. Nieuwenhuis then belted a double to the base of the wall in left to put both runners in scoring position.

Lagares grounded out to push a run across and Tejada followed with a well- executed suicide squeeze that allowed Nieuwenhuis to slide in safely.

Miami didn't let the game stay tied for long, scoring two runs in the sixth to retake the lead.

McGehee walked with one down in the frame and advanced to second on a passed ball by d'Arnaud. Jones drove McGehee in with a bloop double to left center and Ozuna made it 4-2 with a line-drive double to right.

Koehler's day came to an end after a one-out walk to Tejada in the seventh. Bryan Morris came on in relief and saw the first pitch he threw to a pinch- hitting Young deposited over the wall in left for a game-tying homer.

"I just have to keep attacking the hitters," said Koehler. "When I get ahead and throw strikes it's tough to score on."

Mets All-Star Daniel Murphy made a spectacular grab in the eighth to keep the game knotted at 4-4. With two on and two out in the inning, Hechavarria smoked a line drive to second, where Murphy leapt up and snagged the liner with full extension to end the inning.

Mejia had no problem setting down the Marlins in order in the ninth as the Mets downed their division rival for the fourth straight meeting.

Game Notes

Matsuzaka allowed four runs on six hits and tied a career high with 10 strikeouts on a season-high 120 pitches over six innings of work. He last threw 120 pitches in 2007 ... Koehler was charged with three runs on two hits and four walks over 6 1/3 innings ... Miami went 2-for-8 with runners in scoring position, while New York went 1-for-4 in those instances ... The teams wrap up the first half of the season on Sunday, with the Mets' Jacob deGrom opposing Miami's Brad Hand in the series finale.

TV - WPIX - Radio WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 4:10 PM


David Wright has been on quite a tear despite his recent injury and had his best performance of the season in the opener of this three-game home series against Miami.

Considering how he's pounded Marlins pitching this season, that effort shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

Wright looks to help the New York Mets win for the sixth time in seven games as the teams meet again Saturday.

The Mets' captain has batted .385 over his last 17, increasing his average 23 points to .285 after an inconsistent start to the first half.

Wright went 4 for 4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 7-1 victory and has posted a .452 average with two homers, six doubles and nine RBIs while recording at least one hit in 10 of 11 games against the Marlins. He hasn't seemed to feel the effects of a bruised rotator cuff that kept him out seven contests from June 27-July 4.

Lucas Duda added a two-run homer Friday for the Mets (43-50), who have outscored opponents 32-15 over the last six.

They've won three straight meetings with the Marlins and Wright is 4 for 9 with two doubles this season off Tom Koehler (6-7, 3.98 ERA), who will look to bounce back with another successful start against New York.

Koehler went 1-1 with a 1.89 ERA in his previous three outings before having his worst outing of the year Monday, allowing seven runs in three innings of a 9-1 loss to Arizona.

It was the shortest start of the right-hander's career.

Koehler should be looking forward to another matchup with the Mets, as he's gone 1-2 with a 1.59 ERA in his last five against them. He's faced New York three times this season, giving up two runs and striking out 13 in 15 innings over the last two.

The Bronx native will look to help the Marlins (44-48) avoid a fourth loss in five games after they struggled offensively again. Miami has scored seven runs in its last four, with All-Star Giancarlo Stanton going 1 for 14.

Christian Yelich's RBI single in the fifth accounted for the Marlins' only run Friday. Miami will look to start producing against Daisuke Matsuzaka as he seeks a second straight solid start.

After posting a 6.06 ERA while losing his prior three outings, Matsuzaka (3-3, 3.32) gave up six hits in seven scoreless innings of New York's 4-3, 11-inning win over Atlanta on Monday.

The right-hander is 2/3 with a 3.98 ERA in eight starts this season. He's 1-1 with a 3.06 ERA in three career starts against the Marlins, the most recent a 3-2 loss in which he allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings June 20.

Happy Recap: Game 94 - Phillies (0) at Mets (5) - Harvey shuts down Phillies, Mets hit 3 HR's

Philadelphia (49-50)000000000040
N.Y. Mets (43-51)«20030000x570

W: M. Harvey (8-2) L: C. Lee (10-4)
HR: PHI - None   NYM - D. Wright (15),M. Byrd (17),J. Lagares (2)


Matt Harvey stifled the Philadelphia Phillies' bats over seven strong innings and the New York Mets supported the phenom with three home runs in Sunday's 5-0 win.

Harvey (8-2), back on the Citi Field mound after starting Tuesday's All-Star Game, recorded 10 strikeouts and did not walk a batter in his first home win since April 19.

The right-hander didn't allow a hit until Chase Utley's one-out single in the fourth. The Phillies mustered only two more hits, a Michael Young single and a Delmon Young double, before Harvey gave way to Scott Atchison after throwing 112 pitches in the rubber match of a three-game set.

Fellow All-Star Cliff Lee (10-4) got the starting nod for Philadelphia and he was victimized by the long ball again. The southpaw, making his 300th career start, lasted six frames and surrendered seven hits, three of which were homers. Lee gave up four solo homers in his final pre-All-Star outing, a 5-1 loss to Washington.

David Wright and Marlon Byrd hit consecutive homers to left field with two outs in the first inning, the first time this season the Mets went back-to- back.

It remained a 2-0 game until the fourth inning, when a second video review resulted Juan Lagares being credited with a three-run blast, not an RBI double.

The umpires had signaled the ball hit by Wright in the opening frame a home run, but still looked at the replay to confirm their ruling. The liner clearly ricocheted off the railing above the wall.

Lagares' drive was not as definitive as the ball appeared to hit the top of the wall in left. However, the video evidence showed a carom off the railing, too.

Game Notes

Harvey was 0-2 in his previous nine home starts despite a 2.56 ERA ... Wright now has 219 career home runs, one behind Mike Piazza for second place on the Mets' all-time list ... Byrd has driven in at least one run in five straight games ... The Phillies were looking to win their fifth straight series ... Lee suffered his second loss in 12 road starts this season and first since May 1 at Cleveland ... Atchison allowed one hit in two innings of work ... New York second baseman Daniel Murphy had a 10-game hitting streak come to an end after going 0-for-4.

Coming off a start in the All-Star game in his home park, New York Mets righty Matt Harvey faces a tough task Sunday afternoon going up against Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies.

Harvey heads into the rubber match of this three-game series at Citi Field leading the National League with 147 strikeouts. He's also tied for third in ERA (2.35) and is limiting opponents to a batting average of .196, which is also a top-5 stat in the NL.

Aside from pitching two innings Tuesday at Citi Field, Harvey's last regular season appearance came in San Francisco on July 8, when he didn't get a decision after allowing three runs over seven innings during the Mets' 4-3, 16-inning win.

Harvey, who is 0-1 over his last three starts, has yet to lose in his career against the Phillies. He's 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA in four lifetime games.

It's been a long time since Harvey's had a winning decision at Citi Field. He's 0-2 over his last nine home starts and hasn't won in Flushing since April 19 versus the Nationals.

Lee was on an incredible roll, going 8-0 over a 12-start span until his final start prior to the All-Star break. That's when the lefty suffered a 5-1 loss to the Nationals. Lee gave up four solo homers over his seven-inning performance.

Recap: Game 94 - Dodgers at Mets - Mets Fall Back to .500

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)

L.A. Dodgers (51-44) «1031100028110
N.Y. Mets (47-47)0020010205100

W: C. Capuano (10-5) L: M. Batista (1-3)
S: K. Jansen (18)
HR: LAD - J. Uribe (2)   NYM - R. Cedeno (2)

Juan Uribe's two-run home run in the ninth inning halted a Mets comeback, and sent Los Angeles to an 8-5 victory in the middle test of a three-game series.

Uribe finished with two hits, three runs scored and four RBI for the Dodgers, who have taken the first two in the set and three straight overall.

James Loney and Matt Kemp added a pair of hits, RBI and run scored each for LA, which had dropped three of four to the Mets in late June at home.

Chris Capuano (10-5) allowed eight hits and three runs with nine strikeouts over seven solid innings for the win.

Ronny Cedeno homered, while Daniel Murphy and Kirk Nieuwenhuis picked up pinch-hit RBIs for the Mets, who have lost eight of their last nine.

"This time of year they all become the most important game each and every day," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "We've struggled. We came back today and made it a game. We gotta keep fighting. The clubhouse is filled with guys that understand that and know ... it's no fun going through what we're going through."

Miguel Batista (1-3) was tagged in defeat for five hits and four runs over three full frames.

Cedeno's homer brought the hosts within 6-3 in the sixth, then Murphy tripled in a run and Nieuwenhuis added an RBI groundout in the eighth to pull the Mets within a run.

But Uribe cleared the wall in left with two down in the ninth off R.A. Dickey to provide a three-run margin for the visitors. The longball came just after Loney kept the inning alive with a base hit.

Kenley Jansen walked two batters with two outs in the home half, but recovered to fan Scott Hairston to end the game and earn his 18th save.

Los Angeles picked up a run in the first as Kemp and Andre Ethier walked and Loney singled in Kemp. The Dodgers went ahead by a 3-0 count in the third on Uribe's two-run double and a Luis Cruz RBI base hit.

"We really jumped on them early and really grinded out some nice at-bats," said Capuano. "It made for some long innings which can be tough sometimes when you're in the dugout for a long time. But I just tried to keep my energy up."

The Mets responded in the home third on back-to-back RBI singles from Hairston and Jason Bay, but Kemp tripled home Adam Kennedy in the fourth and Matt Treanor scored Uribe on a double in the fifth which pushed LA's edge to 6-2.

Game Notes

Uribe's four RBI were his most since similar performances on April 20 and 22, 2011 against the Braves and Cubs, respectively, and his three runs scored were the most since he crossed the plate three times for the Giants against Arizona on May 29, 2010...Prior to the contest, the Mets placed Johan Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain and recalled pitcher Jeremy Hefner from Triple-A Norfolk.

Matt Kemp is giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a much-needed lift.

The New York Mets could certainly use one to avoid spiraling out of the NL East race.

Kemp looks to lead the Dodgers to their third straight win as they continue this three-game series against the struggling Mets on Saturday.

In six games since returning from a hamstring injury that sidelined him six weeks, Kemp is 10 for 27 with two homers and five RBIs.

The All-Star center fielder has both of those homers and all of those RBIs in the last two games, helping the Dodgers (50-44) to a pair of wins. He had two hits, a two-run homer and a walk in a 7-6 victory in Friday's series opener.

Kemp is hitting .395 in 11 road matchups with the Mets (47-46), and is 3 for 5 against Miguel Batista, New York's scheduled starter Saturday.

The Mets have lost seven of eight with their rotation compiling a 6.29 ERA during that stretch. Johan Santana's struggles continued Friday as he was tagged for six runs in three innings and a trip to the disabled list is a possibility.

''He's not hurt,'' manager Terry Collins said. ''We're going to talk about some alternatives as soon as I'm done in here. Skipping a start, backing him up some - those are some of things we are going to discuss.

Recap: Game 94 - Phillies at Mets - Michael Martinez Sparks Phillies Win

Final Score: Philadelphia 8, New York 5

Michael Martinez hit a three-run homer and drove in a career-best four runs, while Kyle Kendrick turned in seven strong innings as Philadelphia held on to beat the New York Mets, 8-5, in the rubber match of a three-game set from Citi Field.

Jimmy Rollins finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and Ryan Howard knocked in a run for the Phillies, who have won eight of 12 thus far in July.

"The first thing is to make the playoffs. If we can get home-field advantage, that's gonna be the best thing we can do," Howard said as the Phillies upped their major-league best record to 59-35. "We're just trying to get ourselves in the right position."

Kendrick (5-4) allowed one run on six hits with three walks to record his third win in four starts. Antonio Bastardo recorded the final four outs to notch his sixth save.

Ronny Paulino and Lucas Duda each posted two hits and an RBI apiece for the Mets, losers in five of seven. Daniel Murphy hit safely twice and scored a pair of runs.

Mike Pelfrey (5-9) was dented in defeat for six hits and four runs over five full frames.
