Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 50 - Phillies at Mets

Final Score: Philadelphia 6, New York 4

Domonic Brown's single in the ninth inning plated the go-ahead run and started the decisive rally, as the Phillies edged the Mets, 6-4, in the opener of a three-game series.

With two men on and one away in a tie game, Brown smacked a grounder toward first base. The Mets' Daniel Murphy failed to get in front of the ball, trying to field it from the side to perhaps start a double play. But the ball stayed down, scooting into the outfield as Carlos Ruiz scored.

That opened the floodgates: Jimmy Rollins followed with a sacrifice fly, and Placido Polanco tacked on an RBI infield single later in the inning. The cushion helped Philadelphia withstand a New York rally in the bottom half and hold on for a third consecutive win.

"That's a big win against a rival team like the Mets," Brown said.

The Phillies scored all the runs against Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez (1-1), who carried a 19 2/3-inning scoreless streak into Friday's game. It was the longest active streak in the majors.

Recap : 2011 Regular Season - Game 34 - Dodgers at Mets

Final Score: Los Angeles 4, New York 2

Andre Ethier started a new hitting streak on Sunday afternoon, going 2-for-4 with a two-run homer to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the New York Mets, 4-2, in the finale of a three-game series.

Ethier's 30-game hitting streak, the second-longest in Dodger history, came to an end during Saturday night's 4-2 setback.

Rod Barajas and Aaron Miles each drove in a run for Los Angeles, which avoided being swept in three games at Citi Field for a second straight season. Jamey Carroll went 3-for-5 with a run scored.

Clayton Kershaw (4-3) was solid over 6 2/3 innings, allowing one run on six hits. The left-hander also struck out eight and walked three to pick up the win for Los Angeles, which snapped a four-game skid. Kershaw improved to 3-0 lifetime against New York.

Ronny Paulino and Jose Reyes each drove in a run for the Mets, who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

R.A. Dickey (1-4) gave up four runs -- three earned -- on 10 hits over seven full frames to suffer the loss.

The Mets got on the board in the first inning. Justin Turner and David Wright worked consecutive one-out walks. After Jason Bay went down looking, Paulino hit an RBI single to left-center field.

Los Angeles tied the game in the third. Kershaw was hit by a pitch, moved to second on a passed ball, advanced to third on a groundout and crossed the plate on Miles' base hit.

The Dodgers tacked on another run in the fourth for a 2-1 edge. James Loney and Jerry Sands hit back-to-back one-out singles to put men on the corners. Barajas then grounded into a fielder's choice to plate a run.

LA had a chance to break the game open in the fifth. Dickey gave up three straight singles to load the bases with nobody out. Matt Kemp then hit a dribbler back to Dickey, which resulted in a 1-2-3 double play. Juan Uribe grounded out to keep it a 2-1 game.

Ethier helped the Dodgers create some distance in the seventh. Carroll led off with a single and scored two batters on Ethier's homer to right for a 4-1 edge.

Kershaw was taken out of the game in the home seventh with men on the corners and two outs. Kenley Jansen walked Wright to load the bases, but Bay flied out to end the inning.

Vicente Padilla recorded his second save of the season despite giving up an RBI triple to Reyes in the ninth.

Unfortunate Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 29 - Giants at Mets

Final Score: San Francisco 7, New York 6 (10 innings)

Aubrey Huff's solo shot to right in the top of the 10th frame allowed San Francisco to escape Citi Field with a 7-6 victory over the New York Mets.

"Hopefully scoring that many runs today gets us going offensively," said Huff.

San Francisco used three intentional walks to skate through jams in the eighth and ninth frames then Brian Wilson navigated a two-out Jose Reyes single in the 10th for his ninth save of the season. Javier Lopez (1-0) picked up the victory with 1 1/3 scoreless frames, while Mike Fontenot drove in a pair of runs for the Giants, who had lost eight of 11 coming in.

Taylor Buchholz (1-1) suffered the loss, giving up Huff's solo shot. Reyes was on base six times -- a double, two singles and three walks. Carlos Beltran hit a three-run homer and Ike Davis clubbed a two-run shot for the Mets, who have dropped three of four.

"This isn't the way you want to lose the game," said Buchholz.

Upsetting Recap: 2011 Regular Season Game 27 - Mets at Phillies

Roy Halladay 2010 RoadImage by BaseballBacks via Flickr
Final Score: Philadelphia 2, New York 1

Roy Halladay tossed his 60th career complete game and the Philadelphia Phillies set a franchise record with a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets in the middle tilt of a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

Halladay (4-1) limited the Mets to one run on seven hits with one walk and eight strikeouts.

"I was trying to be aggressive, trying to throw strikes and got some early swings for some quick outs. That helped," said Halladay. "I felt like I was able to keep things down, keep things under control and we got a lot of outs early, a lot of outs within the first three pitches."

At 18-8, the Phillies set a club record for wins in the month of April, surpassing the 1993 squad that won the National League pennant.

Jon Niese (1-4) was tagged for two runs and six hits over 6 1/3 innings for New York, which has lost three straight games after winning a season-high six in a row.

Things won't get much easier for the Mets, who will face No. 2 Phillies starter Cliff Lee on Sunday.

"We gotta keep playing, we gotta keep playing along," said New York manager Terry Collins. "We gotta come out and fight tomorrow."

John Mayberry Jr. tied the game with a leadoff home run to left field off Niese in the seventh. Wilson Valdez followed with a single and Dane Sardinha walked before Halladay struck out on a bunt attempt.

Taylor Buchholz replaced Niese and Shane Victorino singled to load the bases for Placido Polanco, who lofted a sacrifice fly to right field to give Philadelphia a 2-1 lead.

Halladay gave up a one-out single to Jose Reyes in the eighth, but got Daniel Murphy to ground into an inning-ending double play.

New York's David Wright walked on four pitches to open the ninth. Halladay, though, retired the next three batters to seal his seventh win in as many starts against the Mets.

Three straight singles by Murphy, Wright and Carlos Beltran produced the Mets' lone run in the fourth.

"It was definitely a pitchers' duel," said Mayberry. "Both guys had really good stuff going. We just had to battle."

Game Notes

Halladay has now won 12 consecutive starts against NL East opponents...Polanco finished 2-for-3 to extend his hitting streak to 10 games...The Phillies improved to 10-0 in day games this season.

NEW YORK - JUNE 10:  Ryan Howard #6 of the Phi...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Final Score: Philadelphia 10, New York 3

Ryan Howard belted two homers, including a grand slam, and knocked in six runs to carry the Phillies to a 10-3 rout of the Mets in the opener of a three-game series.

Howard's explosive bat backed a good outing by Vance Worley, who was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to replace injured No. 5 starter Joe Blanton.

Worley (1-0) yielded just two hits and four walks in six innings, striking out five Mets for his second career MLB win.

Howard moved into a tie for second place on the Phillies all-time home run list and set a team record with 27 RBI in April. Placido Polanco set a new franchise record with 39 hits in April, going 2-for-5 to break Chase Utley's mark of 38 set in 2008.

The Phillies (17-8) also set a club record for wins in April, matching the 1993 team that won the National League pennant.

Ike Davis hit a solo homer and Jason Pridie belted a two-run blast with one out in the ninth inning for New York's only runs. The Mets have lost two in a row on the heels of a six-game winning streak.

The Phillies, after beating Arizona on Wednesday to finish 5-2 on their road trip, started a nine-game homestand with a bang Friday.

The catalyst was Howard, who has three home runs in his last two games after going the previous 13 without one.

Final Score: Atlanta 4, New York 0

Jair Jurrjens allowed two hits over seven shutout innings in his 2011 debut, and the Atlanta Braves blanked the Mets, 4-0, to complete a doubleheader sweep and send New York to its seventh straight defeat.

In the opener, Alex Gonzalez hit two of Atlanta's four solo home runs to help the Braves take a 4-2 win.

Jurrjens (1-0), who had been out with a right oblique strain, walked one batter and struck out four. He moved to 8-2 lifetime against the Mets. George Sherrill and Scott Linebrink combined for five strikeouts over the final two innings to complete the two-hit gem.

Eric Hinske had three hits and an RBI.

Mike Pelfrey (0-2) surrendered 11 hits and four runs over five-plus innings for the Mets, who are mired in their longest slide since dropping 11 in a row during the 2004 season.

Friday night's rainout caused the Mets to play back-to-back doubleheaders for the first time since August 20-21, 1998, against St. Louis. They were swept in a twinbill by Colorado on Thursday.

New York Mets
(Wednesday, April 6th) 
Final Score: Philadelphia 10, New York 7

Ryan Howard went 4-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, a home run and two RBI, as the Philadelphia Phillies outlasted the New York Mets, 10-7, in the middle test of a three-game series.

Neither starter made it out of the fifth inning in a game that featured 28 combined hits. The Mets rallied to tie things after trailing 7-0, but Placido Polanco hit a go-ahead single in the fifth to highlight a three-hit, three-RBI performance.

Ben Francisco added a solo home run in the victory, which was credited to Antonio Bastardo (1-0), who tossed 1 2/3 scoreless frames.

Angel Pagan belted a two-run homer for the Mets, who took Tuesday's opener between the National League East rivals, 7-1.

New York chased Cole Hamels in the third inning on Tuesday, and the Phillies returned the favor against 

Mike Pelfrey, who was pulled after surrendering seven runs -- six earned -- on eight hits in two-plus frames.
Polanco and Raul Ibanez each drove in a run in the first inning, and Shane Victorino chased home another in the second.

Howard started a four-run third with homer to straightaway center, and Pelfrey exited after putting the next three hitters on base.

Taylor Buchholz entered from the bullpen, and Joe Blanton, the Phillies' starter, bounced a single down the third-base line to bring in a pair. Polanco's base hit to center made it 7-0.

But Blanton failed to maintain the comfortable lead.

Pagan crushed a two-run shot to left-center in the fourth, and Blanton put seven straight hitters on base in the fifth before Bastardo took over.

David Wright and Carlos Beltran hit consecutive run-scoring singles, and Ike Davis brought both home with a double to right. Bastardo entered and yielded a pinch-hit single to Daniel Murphy, tying the game 7-7.

The Phillies responded with a two-out rally off Blaine Boyer (0-1) in their half. Victorino doubled to left, and Polanco followed with a bloop to right. Beltran nearly came up with a diving grab on the latter, but the ball came out, allowing Victorino to score.

After Jimmy Rollins worked a work, Howard hit a liner off Boyer's glove. Polanco never stopped running and scored from second for a 9-7 advantage.

Francisco led off the sixth with his second long ball of the season, and the Phillies' bullpen took over from there.

J.C. Romero faced the minimum in the seventh, Ryan Madson retired the side in the eighth, and Jose Contreras, filling in for injured closer Brad Lidge, worked around a two-out walk in the ninth to record his first save of the season.

Game Notes
Blanton, in his first start of the season, was charged with seven runs on 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings. He struck out six and walked two...Pelfrey allowed five runs and four hits with four walks in 4 1/3 frames in an Opening Day loss to the Marlins. His ERA is 15.63...Pete Orr had two hits and two runs scored for the Phillies, who went 7-for-18 with runners in scoring position...Davis, Jose Reyes and Brad Emaus each had two hits for the Mets.

Josh Johnson carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning in a solid Opening Day start, leading the Florida Marlins to a 6-2 victory over the New York Mets.

The Mets rallied for two runs in the inning, but couldn't get any more against Johnson and three Florida relievers. Johnson (1-0) left with two outs in the seventh, yielding two runs on just three hits and two walks while striking out three.

As it turned out, the Marlins got all the offense they needed on John Buck's grand slam off Mets starter Mike Pelfrey (0-1) in the fourth inning. Logan Morrison added a solo homer and Gaby Sanchez had an RBI single for the other runs.
