Happy Recap: Game 95 - Marlins (1) at Mets (9) - Fish Implode, Mets Finish Big before the break



New York

W: J. deGrom (3-5) L: B. Hand (0-2)
HR: MIA - None   NYM - None


Curtis Granderson went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored to help the New York Mets sweep the Miami Marlins with a 9-1 decision.

Jacob deGrom (3-5) went seven innings and allowed one run on five hits with eight strikeouts to earn the win.

David Wright and Chris Young each knocked in a pair of runs for the Mets, who have won seven of their last eight and finished their homestand at 8-2.

Brad Hand (0-2) took the loss after giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over four innings of work.

Miami has dropped its past five games against New York and enters the All-Star break losing five of six overall.

The Mets opened the scoring in the second inning. Lucas Duda led off with a double, advanced to third on a bunt single from Juan Lagares and scored on Young's sacrifice fly to center which gave New York a 1-0 lead.

DeGrom got the first two outs of the fourth, then Casey McGehee collected Miami's first hit of the day on a single to center. Garrett Jones followed with a double to right and Marcell Ozuna kept the rally alive with an infield single that plated McGehee. Ed Lucas couldn't keep the momentum going, however, striking out to end the inning.

The Mets right-hander helped his own cause in the home fourth with his first career RBI.

Young walked with one out and Hand intentionally walked Ruben Tejada two batters later in an attempt to work through the pitcher to get out of the inning.

DeGrom had other ideas, though, ripping a 2-1 fastball up the middle to break the tie. Granderson followed with a ground-rule double that pushed the margin to 3-1.

New York added another run in the fifth courtesy of doubles from Wright and Lagares.

Wright knocked a ground-rule double to lead off the bottom of the inning and moved to third on Duda's flyout. Lagares then stepped in and drove one to the gap in right center, where Ozuna got turned around and couldn't haul it in as Wright easily crossed home for a 4-1 lead.

Wright doubled again in the sixth to knock in Granderson, who reached on a one-out single, for a 5-1 edge.

New York continued to pile it on in the eighth with a four-run inning.

Wright walked with the bases loaded to force in a run and Duda singled to center in the next at-bat to chase Granderson home. Young and Anthony Recker hit back-to-back RBI singles later in the inning to account for the final margin.

Game Notes

Hand has not won since Sept. 18, 2013 at Philadelphia ... No Marlins player had more than one hit ... Eric Young Jr. stole his 24th and 25th bases of the season in the win ... New York went 7-for-17 with runners in scoring position.

Probable Pitchers:
Brad Hand (0-1, 5.09 ERA vs Jacob deGrom (2-5, 3.38 ERA)
TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 1:10 PM


Jacob deGrom's last outing may have brought back memories of the first time he faced the Miami Marlins.

The rookie starter earned his first home win his last time on the mound and will try to help the New York Mets complete a three-game sweep of Miami on Sunday at Citi Field.

DeGrom (2-5, 3.38 ERA) matched a season high with 11 strikeouts and had no walks over seven scoreless innings Tuesday in an 8-3 win over Atlanta. He had been 0-3 with a 2.49 ERA over his first four home starts.

The right-hander's fastball averages 93.4 mph, and he uses it 60.2 percent of the time with a strike percentage of 62.8. His strike percentages are higher for his changeup (68.2) and curveball (69.5).

DeGrom earned his first big-league victory June 21 by limiting the Marlins (44-49) to five hits over seven innings with seven strikeouts in a 4-0 victory. That game began the current four-start stretch in which he's 2-1 with a 1.75 ERA.

He could be the right person to give New York (44-50) further momentum going into the All-Star break. The Mets will try to cap this homestand with an 8-2 mark after rallying for a 5-4 win Saturday.

Collins pushed the right buttons, as Chris Young and Eric Campbell delivered as pinch hitters. Young hit a tying two-run homer in the seventh inning and Campbell singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth.

The Mets have won four straight over the Marlins to take a 7-5 lead in the season series.

Miami dropped its third straight, giving up a lead in the seventh inning or later for the second time in that span.

Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is mired in a 1-for-18 slump and has not homered in a season-worst 14 straight games.

This series features two of the NL leaders in hits. Casey McGehee has a league-best 114 for Miami and Daniel Murphy has 113 for New York.

McGehee may be able to pad his lead over the Mets second baseman Sunday since Collins indicated he may rest Murphy before he heads to the All-Star game. Campbell would likely start at second in his place.

Miami will give Brad Hand (0-1, 5.09) his fifth start of the season and third in a row since being activated off the disabled list July 3.

The left-hander allowed one unearned run over 6 1/3 innings in Tuesday's 2-1 victory at Arizona.
Hand is 1-11 with a 5.01 ERA in 19 career starts, including 0-2 with a 3.78 ERA in three against the Mets.

Recap: Game 95 - Braves (2) at Mets (1) - Heyward saves game for Braves....

Atlanta (56-43)«000000002260
N.Y. Mets (43-52)000100000150

W: J. Walden (4-1) L: B. Parnell (5-5) S: C. Kimbrel (28)
HR: ATL - None   NYM - None


Pinch-hitter Reed Johnson hit the go-ahead single as part of a two-run ninth inning and Jason Heyward made a game-saving catch in left-center field to end the contest, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the New York Mets, 2-1, in the opener of a four-game series at Citi Field.

Craig Kimbrel had trouble in the bottom of the ninth, but notched his 28th save thanks to Heyward. John Buck was hit by a pitch and pinch-runner Andrew Brown moved to second on a wild pitch. After Omar Quintanilla walked, pinch- hitter Justin Turner sent a fly ball to left-center field, but Heyward made a great diving catch to end the game.

"For me, I knew I had to dive off the bat because I didn't think it was in my reach," said Heyward. "As I got closer, well obviously I'm going to try and make the play here with two outs. I got him on a line. If you don't catch it, so be it, but fortunately I was able to get a good enough jump."

Down 1-0 and with Bobby Parnell (5-5) pitching for the Mets, Brian McCann and Evan Gattis hit back-to-back singles to start the ninth, but Dan Uggla hit a grounder towards David Wright, who stepped on third to force pinch-runner Jose Constanza out.

Gattis and Uggla both advanced on a passed ball, putting runners in scoring position. Chris Johnson brought Gattis home with a grounder towards shortstop to tie the game.

Reed Johnson then hit a line drive off a 1-1 fastball to center, giving the Braves the lead.

"I didn't feel like I gave up any hard hit balls, they just unfortunately got through," said Parnell.

Mets starter Dillon Gee's night was spoiled as he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. He allowed two hits and three walks in his outing. For the 27- year-old right-hander, it's his second straight start without giving up an earned run.

Ike Davis went 2-for-4 and drove in the lone run for the Mets, who recorded just five hits.

New York got on the board in the fourth. Marlon Byrd ripped a leadoff triple and scored on Davis' base hit to right.

Gee had his no-hitter broken up in the seventh when leadoff man Freddie Freeman knocked a line drive past him and into center field. Freeman then stole second as McCann struck out. Gattis singled to left and Uggla was hit by a pitch, loading the bases.

However, Chris Johnson hit a grounder towards third and Freeman was thrown out at the plate. Pinch-hitter Joey Terdoslavich struck out to end the inning.

The Mets had a chance to extend their lead in the eighth. Eric Young bunted into a fielder's choice, but stole second. After Daniel Murphy was walked, Young stole third. With one out and runners at the corners, Wright struck out and Byrd flew out to right.

Game Notes

Byrd had a five-game RBI streak snapped, but is 10-for-23 over his last six games ... Young had two stolen bases and has 20 for the season ... Luis Avilan pitched a perfect seventh for Atlanta. He has not allowed an earned run in his last 24 appearances, the last one coming on May 21 against the Twins ... Since his last blown save on May 7, Kimbrel has converted 18 straight opportunities and has allowed just one run in 24 outings.

The Atlanta Braves' beat-up starting outfield is scheduled to get back Jason Heyward, which could be perfect timing given his success against New York Mets starter Dillon Gee.

Heyward likely will return from a six-game absence and try to help Atlanta avoid a fourth defeat in five games Monday night at Citi Field.

A right hamstring strain has kept Heyward out of the lineup while B.J. Upton remains on the disabled list with a right adductor strain, causing manager Fredi Gonzalez to get creative with his outfield.

Gonzalez said Heyward, who normally plays right field, would play center until Upton returns. Justin Upton, normally in left, has been playing right.

"I just wanted to make sure my legs were 100 percent before I can go out there and attempt to (play), so having this extra day is great for me," Heyward said. "(Monday) we'll see where we're at, but I think I'm ready to go."

The NL East-leading Braves (55-43) have dropped four of six without Heyward, including Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Evan Gattis, starting in left, drove in the team's only run, but center fielder Reed Johnson was robbed of what would have been a game-tying homer in the eighth.

Brian McCann also was robbed of a potential run-scoring hit earlier in the game.

Recap: Game 95 - Dodgers at Mets - Mets Fall Below .500, Get Swept By Dodgers

Citi Field (Flushing, NY)
Final 12th123456789101112RHE
L.A. Dodgers (52-44) «0002010000058140
N.Y. Mets (47-48)0001001010003161

W: J. Wall (1-0) L: R. Ramirez (2-2)

HR: LAD - J. Rivera (5)   NYM - None

Pinch-hitter Matt Treanor broke a 12th-inning tie with a two-run single and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the New York Mets with an 8-3 win at Citi Field.

James Loney hit a leadoff single to spark a five-run 12th inning for the Dodgers, who squandered a one-run lead in the ninth. Tony Gwynn, Jr. then dropped down a bunt to advance the runner and wound up beating the throw for an infield single.

After Mark Ellis failed on his bunt attempt by popping out to New York reliever Ramon Ramirez (2-2), Gwynn was erased at second on a fielder's choice.

Ramirez then intentionally walked Andre Ethier to load the bases and Treanor delivered off the bench with a grounder up the middle. Luis Cruz followed with an RBI single and Adam Kennedy added a two-run double, helping secure the Dodgers' first three-game sweep against the Mets in New York since August 16-18, 2002.

"I knew the situation might come up," said Treanor about his pinch-hit appearance. "I went up there and basically just looking for a pitch to hit, something out over the plate."

Josh Wall (1-0) picked up the win in his major league debut.

The loss dropped the Mets (47-48) below .500 for the first time this season.

"It's very disappointing," admitted New York manager Terry Collins. "We're not happy with the way things have gone the last 10 days. We gotta buckle down and get after it and get back over (.500)."

Javy Guerra faltered in the bottom of the ninth, blowing his fourth save of the season. He gave up a leadoff single to Ruben Tejada, who reached third on a one-out hit by David Wright and scored the tying run on Ike Davis' infield chopper. The first baseman Loney bobbled the ball in his haste to get Tejada at the plate, but recovered to throw Davis out. After intentionally walking Daniel Murphy, Guerra got Lucas Duda on an inning-ending groundout.

The Mets failed to score after their first two batters reached base in the 10th.

The Dodgers grabbed a 2-0 lead in the fourth when Matt Kemp led off with a single and Juan Rivera launched a one-out home run to left-center field off Mets starter Jon Niese.

New York got a run back in the bottom half of the inning on a two-out RBI single by Josh Thole, then put men on the corners with one gone in the fifth. Scott Elbert replaced starter Nathan Eovaldi on the mound and shut down the Mets, striking out Davis before getting Murphy to fly out and end the frame.

The Dodgers went ahead 3-1 in the sixth on Ethier's one-out single to left field. Ethier knocked in Mark Ellis, who had hit a leadoff single and advanced to second on a flyout.

New York had another opportunity in the home sixth, but Shawn Tolleson retired Ruben Tejada with two on and two outs. The Mets did pushed across a run with consecutive two-out hits in the seventh. Given a second chance, Davis lined a double after appearing to have struck out and came around to score on Murphy's bloop single to left.

Game Notes

Murphy went 4-for-5 with a walk...Eovaldi gave up one run on seven hits, walked one and struck out seven in 4 1/3 innings...Niese allowed three runs on eight hits in seven-plus innings. He has now pitched at least six innings in nine consecutive outings...Los Angeles finished 5-for-17 with runners in scoring position and left 10 men on base...New York recorded four hits in 19 at-bats with runners in scoring position and stranded 14...The Mets designated pitcher Miguel Batista for assignment and recalled pitcher Elvin Ramirez from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Sunday's contest.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are still chasing the division lead, but at least they're back to their winning ways.

The New York Mets wish they were.

The Dodgers go for their first series sweep in Queens, N.Y., in nearly a decade Sunday when the Mets try to avoid falling below .500 for the first time in 2012.

Since losing seven of eight to relinquish the top spot in the NL West, the Dodgers (51-44) have reeled off three straight victories to keep pressure on division-leading San Francisco. Juan Uribe had a homer and four RBIs and Matt Kemp's third consecutive two-hit game powered Los Angeles to an 8-5 victory Saturday.

"It was a big day for (Uribe) and for us," manager Don Mattingly told the Dodgers' official website.

Los Angeles will give the ball to Nathan Eovaldi (1-6, 4.33 ERA) as it looks for its first sweep visiting the Mets since Aug. 16-18, 2002.

The 22-year-old right-hander allowed all three of his runs on two homers in Monday's 3-2 loss to Philadelphia. Eovaldi had yielded just three homers in his first eight starts after being called up in late May.

"You make mistakes, you get hit," Mattingly said. "... He's going to keep growing into a better pitcher."

The Dodgers haven't done much to support Eovaldi, plating 11 runs in his nine starts. The right-hander had no room for error in a 5-0 home loss to the Mets on June 30 when he allowed all five runs in 5 1-3 innings.

A.J. Ellis will likely be catching Eovaldi after missing the first two games of this series with a swollen left knee.

While Los Angeles tries to win four straight for the first time since sweeping the host Phillies from June 4-7, the Mets (47-47) are just looking to stay above the break-even mark and win for the second time in 10 games.

Late Recap: Game 95 - Marlins at Mets - Mets Bats Silent in Loss

Final Score: Florida 4, New York 1

The Florida Marlins pitchers were dealing on Monday night, as Clay Hensley and four relievers combined on a three-hitter in a 4-1 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field in a make-up game from a May 17 rain out.

Hensley (1-2) worked five scoreless innings, yielding one hit in his first start since June 24, 2008, when he was a member of the San Diego Padres. Hensley, who hadn't pitched since June 1 due to a sprained right shoulder, also fanned three and walked a pair.

"It was fun. Obviously I was very happy to be out there on the mound and I was pleased with the results for the most part," said Hensley. "I wasn't as sharp as I would have liked to have been, but it was something to build on."

Michael Dunn, Edward Mujica, Randy Choate and Leo Nunez combined to finish off the victory Nunez pitched two-thirds of an inning to earn his 27th save of the season.

Mike Stanton ripped a two-run double while Logan Morrison and Mike Cameron had RBI singles for the Marlins, who have won three consecutive games and nine of their past 10.

Chris Capuano (8-9) pitched a solid 7 2/3 frames, giving up four runs on seven hits while fanning five and walking two in defeat.

"I think Cappy [Capuano] pitched a good game and kept us in it," Mets manager Terry Collins said of his starter's effort. "We just couldn't get anything going offensively."

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 95 - Marlins at Mets

Florida Marlins (46-49) at New York Mets (47-47), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Florida - Clay Hensley (0-2, 3.60) New York - Chris Capuano (8-8, 4.12)

Clay Hensley makes his first start in almost three years this evening when the Florida Marlins play a makeup game with the New York Mets at Citi Field.

This contest was originally supposed to be played on May 17, but was postponed on an account of rain. It is the first of seven meetings over the next 17 days between the National League East rivals.

Hensley, who has been on the disabled list since early June with a shoulder sprain, has primarily been a reliever over the course of his six-year career, but has made a few spot starts, his last coming with the San Diego Padres back on July 24, 2008.

The 31-year-old right-hander hasn't pitched since losing to Arizona in a relief role back on June 1. He is 0-2 in 20 appearances this season and has pitched to a 3.60 earned run average.

Hensley has faced the Mets 15 times, twice as a starter, and has posted a 1-2 mark against them with a 4.38 ERA.

Florida has been one of the hottest teams in baseball of late and took three of four over the weekend from the Chicago Cubs, capping the series win on Sunday, as Logan Morrison's two-run single in the eighth inning was the difference in a 7-5 victory.
