HR: NYM - A. Recker (2)   ARI - A. Hill (1),P. Goldschmidt (3)

Recap:

Dillon Gee tossed seven scoreless innings to earn his first win of the season and Anthony Recker homered, as the New York Mets downed Arizona, 5-2, to sweep the three-game set.

Daniel Murphy, David Wright and Kirk Nieuwenhuis each drove in a run for the Mets, winners in five of their last seven and owners of their first road sweep of Arizona since a four-game triumph from June 8-11, 2006.

Gee (1-0) was yanked after only 72 pitches, having allowed only three hits while striking out three. He also added an RBI groundout and began the afternoon by retiring the first 14 batters he faced.

Paul Goldschmidt doubled and homered, while Aaron Hill added a solo shot for the Diamondbacks, who finished their homestand 0-6.

Brandon McCarthy (0-3) was tagged for seven hits and three runs over his 5 2/3-inning outing.

In the home seventh, Goldschmidt doubled with one away, but Andrew Brown made a leaping grab against the right-field wall to rob Miguel Montero of extra bases. Gee completed his outing on a Curtis Granderson grounder to second.

Kyle Farnsworth gave up a leadoff hit to Martin Prado and a one-out single from Tony Campana one frame later, but fanned pinch-hitter Eric Chavez looking and Scott Rice entered to retire Parra on a grounder to second.

The Mets tacked on two more runs in the ninth on RBI singles from Murphy and Wright, and needed them when Hill and Goldschmidt hit back-to-back homers off Jose Valverde to start the home portion. Valverde retired the next two batters, then Prado singled before Cliff Pennington's fly out ended the contest.

Recker's two-out solo blast in the second put the Mets on the board.

New York picked up another run in the fourth, as Ike Davis singled, moved to third on a Brown double and came home on a Nieuwenhuis fly to center.

The visitors went up 3-0 in the sixth. Brown singled, moved to third on a Recker double, and after Ruben Tejada was walked to load the bases, Gee's pinball groundout plated Brown.

Gee helped prevent a run in the home sixth, as Parra singled with two down, but the New York hurler tagged him out at second as the final player in a three-man relay.

Mets Notes:
New York finished its road trip with a 6-3 record ... The Mets have scored first 10 times this season, but are only 4-6 when they plate the first run of the game ... Gee has tossed six-or-more innings in 24 of his last 26 starts dating back to May 30 of last year and has lasted at least seven frames or more in 14 of those starts ...

Preview: 

The New York Mets (7-7) look to sweep the series over the horrendous Arizona Diamondbacks (4-13). Dillon Gee will look to rebound from his last start against the Angels on April 11th. Gee only went five innings, giving 6 hits and 4 earned runs. He got the no decision. The D'backs that have faced him are only hitting .215 off Gee. Gee is 1-1 with a 3.75 ERA vs the D'Backs in his career.

The D'backs will counter with Brandon McCarthy on the hill vs the Mets. McCarthy is 0-1 with a 2.57 ERA vs the Mets. The Mets that have faired against him are collectively batting .235 (35 AB's) with 1 HR. McCarthy has been prone to the Homer Run ball as he has given up 5 HR's in three games. Curtis Granderson is the only Mets with 14 AB's vs McCarthy and is batting .143 vs him. The D'Backs are 1-10 at Home and have lost 5 in a row.. In his last start, McCarthy  pitched 7 innings, giving up 10 hits, 6 earned runs vs the Dodgers (April 11th). He got the Loss (6-0)...

See if the Mets can sweep the D'Backs and go above .500, instead of under it... LGM!

Recap:

Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the New York Mets defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-0, in the middle contest of a three-game set.

Nieuwenhuis was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas prior to the game to replace outfielder Juan Lagares on the active roster.

The Mets placed Lagares on the 15-day disabled list with a pulled right hamstring. New York was also without right fielder Curtis Granderson, who is considered day-to-day after running into the fence, injuring his rib and forearm in Monday's win.

Eric Young collected three hits with two RBI and two runs scored and Andrew Brown also knocked in two RBI starting in place of Granderson.

New York starter Jenrry Mejia (2-0) went five innings and allowed just two hits with three strikeouts and two walks to earn the win. Mejia was cruising through the Diamondbacks order, but was taken out of the game after five scoreless frames because of a blister on his throwing hand.

Gonzalez Germen pitched three scoreless innings in relief and Kyle Farnsworth pitched a perfect ninth as Mets pitching held the Diamondbacks to just three hits. New York has won three of its last four.

Bronson Arroyo (1-1) was roughed up for nine runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings for Arizona, which has lost five straight. His ERA rocketed up to 9.95 over three starts this season.

New York opened the game with three straight hits to load the bases. Lucas Duda then grounded into a force out that scored Young.

Brown followed with a deep sacrifice fly to center that plated Daniel Murphy. Nieuwenhuis knocked in Duda with a single up the middle in his first at-bat of the season.

The Mets tacked on a crooked number in the top of the fourth when Nieuwenhuis crushed a two-run homer to right which increased the cushion to 5-0.

Arroyo then walked Travis d'Arnaud before Omar Quintanilla doubled to center. Mejia followed with a weak fly to left for the first out of the inning, then Young and Murphy each hit singles to make it an 8-0 game. Young knocked in two with his hit and scored all the way from first when Murphy's basehit was misplayed by A.J. Pollock in center.

Arroyo was chased shortly thereafter and Randall Delgado came on in relief, immediately loading the bases by hitting Duda. Brown grounded into a force out that plated Murphy and the Mets led 9-0 after 3 1/2 frames.

Gerardo Parra walked to lead off the home half of the fourth which was the first baserunner for Arizona. Paul Goldschmidt then ripped a single down the third-base line two batters later for the Diamondbacks' first hit of the night. Parra and Goldschmidt, however, were stranded on base as the fourth came to a close.

Preview:

The Mets (6-7) look to get to the .500 mark for the first time this season. They will face veteran starter Bronson Arroyo, who signed as a free agent this offseason. The D'Back have dropped 4 in a row (4-12).

Arroyo, who played for Cincinnati for years is 8-3 with a 3.63 ERA vs the Mets in his career. The current Mets combined have hit .273 (30 for 110) with 3 HR's and 7 RBI's. Daniel Murphy has owned Arroyo (6 for 13 (.462) with 2 2B's. David Wright, who has 38 AB's vs Arroyo is batting .237 with 1 HR , 4 RBI's.

Arroyo (1-0) won his last time out (April 9th ) in San Francisco going 5 IP, 6 HIts, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K's.

The Mets will counter with Jenrry Mejia (1-0), who has never faced the D'Backs in his career.  He got a no decision last time out (April 10th) @ Atlanta when he went 5 IP, 6 Hits, 4 ER, 2 HR's, 4 BB's, 7 K's. The Mets won 6-4.  Only two players on the D'Backs roster have career 5 AB's vs Mejia. Martin Prado (4), Cody Ross (1).

Let's hope Mejia can contain the D'Backs and the Mets can put up some runs against Arroyo... LGM!

Miguel Montero opened the scoring in the first with a deep drive to right field. Granderson made an attempt for the ball and did catch it until colliding into the fence in right.

Granderson grimaced in pain but did stay in the game until being replaced by Andrew Brown in the sixth.

Mets starter Zack Wheeler (1-2) earned his first victory of the season after hurling 6 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits with three strikeouts and three walks. New York has won two of its last three.

Montero went 3-for-3 with all three RBI for the Diamondbacks, who have lost four straight.

Preview:


The New York Mets (5-7) will try and forget the dredging they got in Anaheim, as they were 14-2 losers. The Diamondbacks are trying to figure out how to win (4-11) and according to reports, has skipper Kirk Gibson on the hot seat. The D-Backs Rotation has been hit with injuries (Patrick Corbin) and Randall Delgado has not performed, so Josh Collmenter who spent much of his career in the bullpen will start for them. The Mets players on the team have seen him in relief have 43 AB's and have 16 hits (.372) off him. Ike Davis has a HR off Collmenter and David Wright has 2 HR's vs Collmenter in his career.

The Mets will counter will young Zack Wheeler. He has gotten beaten up a bit in his last two starts (5.73 ERA)...In Atlanta on April 9th,  he only got through 5 innings, giving up 8 hits, giving up 4 earned runs.. Wheeler (0-2) has pitched in Arizona going 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA. Six Players on the current D'Backs roster are hitting .312 combined with 1 HR vs Wheeler in their career. Aaron Hill hit the HR.

Wheeler has to improve to keep the D'Backs off the board and the Mets have to put up runs. Ike Davis looks like he might get the start.

Recap:


Andrew Brown delivered a pinch-hit three-run home run and the New York Mets defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-5, in the rubber match of a three-game series.

Wilmer Flores had a home run,  the first of his young career.  Anthony Recker and Omar Quintanilla drove in a run apiece and Ike Davis scored three times for the Mets, who have won five of their last six games.

Jonathon Niese (4-6) returned after missing nearly two months with a partial tear of the left rotator cuff. He gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk through six frames.

"It's just good to get back out there with all the guys. I'm glad it went well," Niese said.

Aaron Hill had four RBI, including a three-run homer, while Cliff Pennington drove in a run for the Diamondbacks. Starter Zeke Spruill (0-2) lasted just three innings, surrendering five runs -- one earned -- on six hits and a pair of walks.

Arizona also lost Cody Ross to a dislocated right hip. He was trying to beat out a grounder in the first inning but stumbled and fell to the ground. He was lifted by a stretcher onto a cart and driven off the field. Martin Prado switched from third base to left field while Matt Davidson, making his major league debut, took over at third.

The Mets scored four runs in the first. With two out and the bases loaded, Mike Baxter hit a line drive that bobbled out of first baseman Paul Goldschmidt's glove, allowing all of the runners to score. Recker followed with an RBI double to left.

"We had a terrible first inning today," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said.

Hill responded in the home half with a two-out RBI double, plating A.J. Pollock, who hit an infield single to lead off.

New York extended its lead in the third. Ike Davis hit a single to start the inning and, two batters later, Baxter followed with a single. After Recker flew out, Quintanilla singled to center to score Davis.

However, Hill kept the Diamondbacks alive in the bottom of the inning with a three-run shot to left. Pollock singled and Paul Goldschmidt walked prior to the homer.

After Davis walked and Flores singled, Brown clubbed a three-run homer of his own in the Mets' seventh to grab an 8-4 lead.

In the bottom of the eighth, Gerardo Parra ripped a one-out double to right and scored on Pennington's base hit to center field.

Wilmer Flores' first career home run came with one out in the ninth and accounted for the final margin.

LaTroy Hawkins pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to end the game.

Game Notes

Davidson was recalled from Triple-A Reno prior to the game. In addition, the Diamondbacks placed infielder Eric Chavez on the 15-day disabled list and optioned pitcher David Hernandez to Reno ... Davidson went 1-for-3 ... Hill is batting .392 with three home runs and 12 RBI over his last 13 games ... The Mets are 8-5 in rubber games this season, including 5-1 on the road ... Recker entered the game with a career .054 batting average with runners in scoring position ... The Mets were 3-for-12 with RISP.

Wilmer Flores is doing quite well in place of David Wright.

Another productive performance could help the New York Mets win their first road series against the Arizona Diamondbacks in over five years Sunday.

The Mets (53-61) were dealt a major blow earlier this month when Wright was placed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, potentially losing their best hitter for the rest of the season.

Flores has unexpectedly helped lessen the impact of the All-Star third baseman's absence.

The 22-year-old rookie from Venezuela is just 4 for 19 while New York has won four of five since he was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas. However, he's collected eight RBIs while notching at least one in each of the past four contests.

"I'm still shaking a little bit," Flores told the team's official website. "I try to control myself a little bit and I think it's working."

It certainly did Saturday, when he drove in three runs on two hits to spark a 4-1 win at Arizona (59-56) after the Mets dropped the opener of this three-game set 5-4 on a walkoff homer from Paul Goldschmidt.

"He doesn't strike out. I'm sure he will one of these days, but he puts the bat on the ball," manager Terry Collins said of Flores, who hit .321 with 86 RBIs for Las Vegas.

Recap:

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with three RBI to lead the New York Mets to a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the middle portion of a three-game series at Chase Field.

Juan Lagares hit a solo homer and scored twice and Ike Davis went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored for the Mets, winners in four of their last five games.

Zack Wheeler (5-2) gave up one run -- a solo homer -- and six hits over 6 1/3 innings to earn the win. The rookie struck out four without issuing a walk to improve to 4-0 over six road starts.

"I was just trying to throw strikes and get ahead of guys," Wheeler remarked. "That was the main point tonight."

LaTroy Hawkins stranded a runner on second in the ninth to notch his third save.

Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with a solo homer for the D-backs, who had won three straight entering the contest.

Brandon McCarthy (2-6) was pegged with the loss after giving up two runs on six hits over seven innings. McCarthy is 0-2 since returning from the disabled list on Sunday.

"He gave us seven innings, two runs, and gave us a chance to win the game," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said of his starter.

The Mets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning. Lagares opened the frame with a homer to right-center. Later in the frame, Davis ripped a two-run double to left then scored on Flores' base hit to right field.

Hill's leadoff homer in the seventh made it 2-1, but the Mets answered with a pair of runs in the eighth to go up 4-1.

With the bases loaded and two outs, Flores stroked a single to left to score Eric Young and Lagares.

Arizona loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth inning, but Gerardo Parra was caught looking to end the threat.

Game Notes

New York is just 3-6 over its last nine road games ... The Mets were 2-for-8 with runners in scoring position ... Lagares also had a stolen base ... Arizona was 0-for-5 with RISP ... Saturday was Paul Goldschmidt bobblehead night. The All-Star first baseman went 1-for-4 ... Game time: 3:01

Paul Goldschmidt's second career walk-off homer put him into the Arizona record books.

The slugger will next try to lead the Diamondbacks to a fourth straight win when they resume a three-game series on Saturday night against the New York Mets.

After the Mets rallied for a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning to tie the game, Goldschmidt ripped a game-winning solo homer in the ninth to give the D'backs a 5-4 victory.

Goldschmidt, who hit 20 homers and drove in 82 runs in 145 games last season, moved into a tie for the NL lead with 27 homers this season and is tops in the league with 91 RBI through 113 contests. His 27 homers are also the most for a first baseman in club history, passing the 26 hit by Tony Clark in 2005.

"It was fun," Goldschmidt said. "You get an opportunity to win the game in the ninth inning or extra innings ... and it's a lot of fun. Hopefully we can do it a few more times."

Goldschmidt's homer off Mets reliever Scott Atchison was the Diamondbacks' seventh walk-off win of the season.

Arizona has won three in a row for the first time since July 11-13 and trail the Los Angeles Dodgers by 5 1/2 games for first place in the NL West.

HR: NYM - None   ARI - P. Goldschmidt (27)

Recap:

Paul Goldschmidt sliced a game-winning solo home run over the right-field wall in the ninth inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a dramatic 5-4 victory over the New York Mets in the opener of a three-game series.

Goldschmidt's 27th home run of the season came on a hanging breaking ball from Scott Atchison (2-1) and gave the D'backs their seventh walk-off win and league-leading 23rd victory in their final at-bat.

"I just left a cutter up," Atchison said. "He's a good hitter...and he made me pay for a bad pitch."

Brad Ziegler (5-1) tossed a perfect ninth to pick up the win behind starter Patrick Corbin, who held the Mets to two runs on four hits and three walks over six quality innings but wound up with a no-decision.

Adam Eaton went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI for Arizona, which has won three in a row for the first time since July 11-13.

Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with three RBI for the Mets, who couldn't build off a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies.

New York scratched two runs off Heath Bell in the eighth to tie the game at 4-4. Bell, who had not allowed a run in 11 straight appearances, gave up three consecutive singles to load the bases before Turner and Wilmer Flores each pushed a run across via groundouts.

The go-ahead run was stranded on third thanks to a nice defensive play by Martin Prado, and Goldschmidt sent the fans home happy an inning later.

"It was fun," Goldschmidt said. "You get an opportunity to win the game in the ninth inning or extra innings...and it's a lot of fun. Hopefully we can do it a few more times."

Six of Arizona's 10 hits went for doubles, including three consecutive two- baggers with two down in the fifth inning. Corbin started the string with a double to center field, and Eaton and Prado capped it with run-scoring extra- base hits to put the D'backs in front, 2-1.

Turner, who broke a scoreless tie with an RBI single in the fourth, added another one in the sixth to even things.

Again the D'backs answered as they began their half of the sixth with a single and a pair of doubles, with Wil Nieves' liner down the left-field line bringing in both Aaron Hill and Cody Ross.

Hill had a pair of big relay throws to secure the win, the second coming in the seventh when he gunned down Juan Lagares trying to leg out a triple. The first certainly saved a run, as his perfect toss to the plate denied Marlon Byrd from pulling off an inside-the-park home run in the second inning.

Game Notes

The D'backs lead the majors with 24 one-run victories ... Corbin, who has a 1.60 ERA in 13 home starts this season, tied Clayton Kershaw for the MLB lead with 20 quality starts and has allowed two runs or less in 18 of his 23 outings ... Mets starter Jeremy Hefner was touched for four runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.
