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

Recap:

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.

TV - SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch - 1:10 PM

Preview:

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.

HR: MIA - C. Yelich (8)   NYM - C. Young (8)

Recap:

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.

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

Recap:

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.

Preview:

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.

Recap:

Dillon Gee tossed eight innings of shutout ball and Chris Young belted a two-run homer to highlight the New York Mets' 4-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

Gee (2-1) gave up more walks (four) than hits (three) and struck out six for the Mets, who bounced back after an extra-inning loss Saturday to take the rubber match of this three-game set.

David Wright and Lucas Duda each drove in a run for New York's offense, while Miami's only mustered three singles all afternoon.

Bronx native Tom Koehler (2-2) took the loss after being touched for four runs on five hits and four walks over five innings.

Duda's ground-rule double in the second inning plated Daniel Murphy, and the Mets added three more in the fifth for good measure.

Curtis Granderson led off the frame with a walk and raced around to score when Wright doubled off the base of the left-field wall.

Young followed two batters later with a no-doubter into the left-field seats on the 11th pitch of his at-bat, and the Marlins' bats were held quiet by Gee.

The right-hander only allowed one hit through six innings and shook off two singles in the seventh with a pair of groundouts, the second an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play ball off the bat of Adeiny Hechavarria.

Carlos Torres finished off Gee's gem with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Game Notes

The Marlins have lost four of their last six overall and fell to 2-10 on the road ... Gee improved to 3-0 in five lifetime starts against Miami ... The Mets have led in 22 of their 25 games ... Wright's double was only his fourth extra-base hit this season ... The Mets open a nine-game road trip Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Preview:

A day after the Marlins completed an impressive rally, Tom Koehler looks to continue his strong start and help Miami win its first road series of the season Sunday against the New York Mets.

Miami (11-13) finished at the bottom of the NL East at 62-100 last year, partly due to a 26-55 mark on the road. The Marlins have been even worse on the road so far in 2014, dropping nine of 11.

They seemed headed for another road defeat Saturday, but a five-run sixth inning combined with a homer from Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the 10th gave them a 7-6 win.

The Marlins, though, are hitting .223 while averaging 2.9 runs on the road compared to .293 and 5.8 at home. Koehler (2-1, 2.13 ERA) is surely aware of that difference.

The right-hander has been backed by 18 total runs in his victories -- both at home -- but has received just two in his other two outings, which resulted in road defeats for Miami.

That was the case again Monday, when Koehler allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings while not getting a decision in a 4-2 loss at Atlanta.

Poor run support is precisely why Koehler is just 1-1 in seven games -- four starts -- against the Mets. A Bronx native who attended nearby Stony Brook, Koehler has been backed by seven total runs in those meetings, undermining his 2.35 ERA and 18 consecutive scoreless innings over his last three starts.

Daniel Murphy is a bright spot in the Mets Lineup vs Koehler as he is batting .364 (4 for 11) with a HR. The Mets team combined that has faced him is batting .194 (13 for 67)

He held the Mets (13-11) to just three hits in eight innings of a 1-0 win at Citi Field on Sept. 15.

New York will counter with Dillon Gee (1-1, 3.58), who can empathize with Koehler's lack of support. The right-hander only allowed two runs in the fourth inning before leaving after the sixth Tuesday, but he was charged with the 3-0 loss to St. Louis.

Gee is 2-0 with a 3.09 ERA in four career starts against the Marlins, going 1-0 in two home meetings while holding them to one run while fanning 14 batters in 13 1/3 innings. The Marlins as a team (that have faced him) are batting a combined .286 (14 for 49) with 2 HR's...(Giancarlo Stanton 1, Greg Dobbs 1)..

Tough one for the Mets, might be a pitching matchup in the works.... LGM!

Recap:

Jarrod Saltalamacchia slugged a tiebreaking home run in the top of the 10th inning to send the Miami Marlins to a 7-6 victory over the New York Mets in the middle test of a three-game set Saturday at Citi Field.

Kyle Farnsworth (0-1) replaced Daisuke Matsuzaka on the mound to start the 10th and was greeted by Saltalamacchia, who drove a 2-2 fastball over the wall in left-center field to break the 6-6 stalemate.

Steve Cishek bounced back from Friday's blown save by spinning a scoreless bottom of the 10th to secure his fifth save of the season. Cishek had converted a club-record 33 straight save opportunities prior to blowing a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning Friday.

Mike Dunn (2-3) struck out four over two perfect innings of relief work to pick up the victory.

Giancarlo Stanton smacked a two-run homer to spark Miami's five-run sixth inning, while Casey McGehee collected three hits and scored two runs to help the Marlins snap a two-game skid.

Bobby Abreu belted a two-run blast and Lucas Duda added a two-run single for the Mets, who had won three straight games.

New York starter Jenrry Mejia held Miami to just one run over the first five frames before running into trouble in the sixth with his team ahead 5-1.

Marcell Ozuna opened the inning with a double and Stanton followed with a drive over the wall in right-center field to bring the Marlins within 5-3.

McGehee then singled and Saltalamacchia walked before Garrett Jones lined out and Mejia induced a fielder's choice groundout from Derek Dietrich that left runners on the corners with two away.

Mejia was unable to wiggle out of the jam, however, as Adeiny Hechavarria stroked a single to center to score McGehee.

After Carlos Torres took over for Mejia, pinch-hitter Reed Johnson ripped a double into the right-field corner to plate both runners for a 6-5 lead.

New York evened things in the home half after Travis d'Arnaud kept the inning alive with a two-out walk. A passed ball by Saltalamacchia allowed d'Arnaud to move to second before Omar Quintanilla slapped a grounder to the hole at shortstop.

Hechavarria made a nice backhand stab on the play, but his throw to first sailed and d'Arnaud raced home to tie the game at 6-6.

The Marlins nearly broke the deadlock in the ninth when they put men on second and third with two away, but Matsuzaka caught McGehee staring at strike three to end the inning.

Early on, the Mets pushed three runs across in the first against Miami starter Kevin Slowey. Eric Young Jr. slapped a leadoff single and then stole second with David Wright at the dish. Saltalamacchia misfired on his throw to second, allowing Young to race to third.

After Wright plated Young with a sacrifice fly, Daniel Murphy ripped a single to center and Abreu followed with his first big league home run since Sept. 28, 2012 to give the Mets a 3-0 lead.

Dietrich's RBI single in the second got Miami on the board, but the Mets pushed two more runs across in the third to increase their cushion.

With two runners aboard and two away in the frame, Duda drilled a single back up the middle to score Curtis Granderson and Murphy, who both walked earlier in the inning.

Game Notes

Abreu's last homer in the MLB came as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Colorado Rockies ... Stanton has 29 RBI, moving him within one of Moises Alou's club record for RBI in the first month of a season. Alou had 30 in 1997 ... The Marlins improved to 2-9 on the road this season ... Slowey allowed five runs on five hits and two walks over four frames ... Mejia was charged for six runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings ... Eric Young recorded his 12th stolen base of the season and has reached base in 20 straight games.
