Recap:

Melky Cabrera's two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning accounted for the only scoring in the Toronto Blue Jays' 2-0 victory over the New York Mets at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.

Cabrera belted the first pitch he saw from Adam Kolarek over the wall in left with Moises Sierra aboard and the game still scoreless with two outs in Toronto's half of the eighth. Both Cabrera and Sierra finished with two hits, as did Adam Lind.

Four Blue Jay hurlers combined to hold the Mets to two hits, with Brandon Morrow recording eight strikeouts over the first 5 2/3 innings and Aaron Sanchez fanning three of the six hitters he faced over the final two frames.

Mets starter Daisuke Matsuzaka also struck out eight while yielding five hits over five scoreless innings.

The game was the final one for both teams before each begins its regular season on Monday. The Mets will host Washington and the Blue Jays visit Tampa Bay.

Happy Recap: Game 41 - Mets at Blue Jays - Mets scratch one out against Jays

W: D. Gee (3-3) L: H. Alvarez (3-4)
S: F. Francisco (10)
HR: NYM - None   TOR - J. Bautista (11)

Recap:
David Wright hit a two-run double, Mike Baxter fell a home run shy of the cycle and the New York Mets survived a late Toronto rally to beat the Blue Jays, 6-5, in the finale of a three-game interleague series at Rogers Centre.

Baxter, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Daniel Murphy and Ike Davis each knocked in a run for the Mets, who led by four on two occasions and overcame a rocky ninth inning by closer Frank Francisco to avoid being swept for the first time by the Blue Jays.

New York starter Dillon Gee (3-3) gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings.

"I was proud I at least got into the seventh inning, especially after throwing a lot of pitches in the first couple innings," Gee said.

Jose Bautista homered, singled twice and drove in two runs for Toronto, which had its winning streak snapped at four games.

Henderson Alvarez (3-4) was tagged for six runs on nine hits in five full frames.

After New York failed to score with the bases loaded in the eighth, the Blue Jays trimmed their deficit to 6-5 in the bottom of the inning. Reliever Bobby Parnell gave up back-to-back doubles to J.P. Arencibia and Eric Thames to start the frame before Colby Rasmus snapped an 0-for-20 skid with a run- scoring single.

In the ninth, Francisco issued a leadoff walk and a single to Bautista, but the right-hander struck out the next three batters to earn his 10th save of the season.

"Those guys at the back end of their bullpen make their money for a reason," said Arencibia. "[Francisco] at the end of the game punched out the side after the first two batters getting on. He's got good stuff."

Limited to three hits by Brandon Morrow in Saturday's 2-0 loss, the Mets matched that output with a productive first inning.

Alvarez walked Andres Torres to begin the game and gave up back-to-back doubles to Baxter and Wright. The latter was the 1,301st hit of Wright's career, moving him into sole possession of second place on the Mets' all-time hit list. Wright, who didn't play Saturday because of an illness, had been tied with Jose Reyes.

New York added a third run with another double after the next two batters were retired. Nieuwenhuis lifted a fly ball to shallow center field and a charging Rasmus couldn't secure the catch on a diving attempt. The ball came out of his glove after he landed on the turf.

Ronny Cedeno singled to open the second and Baxter plated him with a two-out triple to right field for a 4-0 New York lead.

Yan Gomes drove in Toronto's first run in the bottom of the inning on a single after Gee issued consecutive one-out walks. Bautista clubbed his 11th home run of the season, a leadoff drive inside the left-field foul pole, to close the gap to 4-2 after three frames.

Murphy plated Baxter in the fifth with a grounder up the middle and the Mets extended their lead to 6-2 later in the inning when Davis grounded into fielder's choice with the bases loaded.

Gee's afternoon was done after Bautista plated Gomes with a two-out single.

Game Notes

Ed Kranepool is first on New York's hit list with 1,418...Bautista has hit six homers over his last 10 games...Alvarez had allowed two or fewer earned runs in each of his previous five starts...Baxter recorded his second career triple...The Mets placed pitcher Miguel Batista on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a back injury and recalled righty Chris Schwinden from Triple-A Buffalo.

Preview:
Trying for their season-high fifth straight win, the Toronto Blue Jays turn their attention to Henderson Alvarez as they aim to finish a three-game sweep of the New York Mets.

Alvarez had a personal three-game winning streak broken on Tuesday when he allowed a season-high 10 hits along with two earned runs in a 4-3 loss to the Rays. This will be his first appearance vs. the Mets.

Right-hander Dillon Gee surrendered seven runs over 5 1/3 innings in an 8-0 loss to Milwaukee Tuesday. He'll try to bounce back this afternoon. Although Gee has never faced the Blue Jays, the Mets can receive some comfort that Gee has sparkled on the road this year, going 2-0 with a 3.66 ERA in three starts.

Yesterday, Brandon Morrow tossed his second shutout of the season in a 2-0 final. Morrow (5-2) gave up just one walk and three hits while striking out eight for the Blue Jays, who have won four straight. Kelly Johnson and Yunel Escobar each had two hits and an RBI in the win.

HR: NYM - None   TOR - None

Recap:
Brandon Morrow tossed his second shutout of the season as the Toronto Blue Jays took a 2-0 win over the New York Mets in the second of three games in an inter-league set.

Morrow (5-2) gave up just one walk and three hits while striking out eight for the Blue Jays, who have won four straight. Kelly Johnson and Yunel Escobar each had two hits and an RBI in the win.

"That was a great game that he threw out there today," said Toronto manager John Farrell. "We got a couple of timely hits there, but the real story today was Brandon, he was fantastic out there."

Lucas Duda's double was the only extra-base hit for the Mets, who have dropped four of five.

Miguel Batista started on the mound, but left after two innings with stiffness in his lower back. Jeremy Hefner (0-1), who was called up from Triple-A Buffalo prior to the game, gave up two runs on four hits with five strikeouts over five innings in his second appearance in the majors.

"I'm not trying to change anything with the way I approach things up here," said Hefner. "I'm just trying to make my pitches and when they put the ball in play let the guys behind me do their job."

The game remained scoreless until the fifth inning when Toronto went on top. With two outs, Jeff Mathis kept the inning alive with a single and Johnson followed with a double. Escobar then singled home Johnson for a 2-0 lead.

Morrow, meanwhile, was nearly untouchable as he retired the first seven batters before Ronny Cedeno singled with one out in the third.

He then set down the next 13 batters before Duda doubled with two outs in the seventh. Morrow struck out Ike Davis to end the frame.

Morrow then set down the side in the eighth and got a good play from Jose Bautista in the ninth.

After giving up a leadoff walk to Scott Hairston, Morrow got Andres Torres to fly out. Mike Baxter then singled to right as Hairston moved to third. However, Bautista nailed Baxter trying to take second on the hit and Daniel Murphy followed with a line out to short to end the game.

Game Notes

Morrow has three shutouts in his career. He has not allowed more than one earned run in his last six games...The Blue Jays improved to just 6-14 lifetime against the Mets...Dillon Gee pitches for the Mets in the finale on Sunday while Henderson Alvarez will help Toronto go for the sweep.

Preview:
J.P. Arencibia and the Toronto Blue Jays are trying to slug their way to another four-game winning streak.

Brandon Morrow would appreciate another offensive barrage and surely wouldn't mind avoiding the New York Mets' top threat.

Arencibia and Morrow will try to help the Blue Jays match their longest win streak of the season Saturday against the Mets, who could be without David Wright.

Toronto (22-18) is hitting .311 with 11 homers and 26 runs during its three-game winning streak, putting it one victory from its third four-game run of 2012.

The Blue Jays' bats showed few signs of slowing Friday, collecting 12 hits - including a season-high five homers - in a 14-5 victory over New York (21-18) in the opener of this three-game set.

Arencibia has been a big part of the team's recent production, going 7 for 13 with four homers and 10 RBIs during the three-game streak.

The catcher hit two homers and drove in a career-best six runs in Friday's rout.

"I'm a guy that drives in runs," said Arencibia, who has 26 RBIs. "To drive in six and get that cushion for your pitcher out there is big."

Morrow (4-2, 2.22 ERA) didn't get much help from his teammates in his most recent trip to the mound Monday. The right-hander allowed six runs - one earned - all in the fifth inning before he exited a 7-1 loss to Tampa Bay. He finished with seven strikeouts and four walks, while Toronto mustered four hits with two errors.

Morrow had won his previous four starts behind a 0.65 ERA while fanning 30 in 27 2-3 innings.

Recap:
J.P. Arencibia had a pair of home runs and drove in six as the Toronto Blue Jays pounded the New York Mets, 14-5, in the opener of a three-game interleague set.

Rajai Davis had a pair of two-run home runs while Yan Gomes added his first major league home run, two RBI and two runs scored for the Blue Jays, who have won three straight. Ricky Romero (5-1) gave up just one run on three hits with four walks and six strikeouts over six innings for the win.

Scott Hairston hit a three-run home run for the Mets, who have dropped three of four. Jon Niese (2-2) left after three innings as he gave up eight runs on eight hits but did strike out six.

Toronto scored early and often in this game to take a commanding lead as the team got things started in the first on Arencibia's line-drive shot over the wall in left with two on for a 3-0 lead.

After Rob Johnson drove in a run in the second on a groundout to cut the Mets' deficit to two, Gomes led off bottom of the inning with his first career home run.

Jose Bautista added an RBI single later in the second and Toronto again used the long ball in the third to pad its advantage.

Arencibia led off the frame with his second of the game and seventh of the season. Later in the inning with two outs and one on, Davis belted a shot into the left field seats for an 8-1 lead.

Davis added his second two-run shot of the game in the fifth, a bomb deep into the left field stands, for a 10-1 lead.

Arencibia singled in two runs, Eric Thames had an RBI single and Gomes followed with a sac fly in the sixth to make it a 14-1 game.

The Mets made the game a bit more respectable in the eighth with an RBI groundout with the bases loaded from Daniel Murphy and a three-run home run off the bat of Hairston to make it a nine-run game.

Game Notes

Mets third baseman David Wright hit a double in the first inning, the 1,300th hit of his career...It was a season-high in runs scored for the Blue Jays...The last time these teams met was in 2006 when the Mets took two of three in Toronto.

Preview:
The Blue Jays have struggled during inter-league play, a fact that has been obvious when they have faced the Mets.

Toronto will try to get its schedule against the National League off to a good start tonight when it battles New York for the first time since 2006.

The Blue Jays begin this three-game series with the Mets having posted a losing record in interleague play in each of the past four seasons. They went 8-10 versus the NL a season ago and are just 4-14 all-time versus the Mets.

Toronto hasn't played New York since splitting a two-game series in Toronto six years ago.

The Blue Jays do come in riding high off a pair of victories over another New York team, sweeping a quick two-game series with the Yankees by taking yesterday's encounter 4-1.

Jose Bautista and J.P. Arencibia both hit two-run homers, while Drew Hutchison gave up one run on five hits in six full frames for the Blue Jays, who had lost three in a row before facing the Yankees.

"I thought Hutch once again kept his composure," said Blue Jays manager John Farrell. "A solid and well played game all around."

Toronto will be without third baseman Brett Lawrie for this series after he dropped his appeal of a four-game suspension on Thursday stemming from his aggressive actions towards umpire Bill Miller on Tuesday. That included him throwing his helmet in Miller's direction during his tirade.
