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 ...

W: J. Mejia (2-0) L: B. Arroyo (1-1)
HR: NYM - K. Nieuwenhuis (1)   ARI - None

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.

Recap:

Lucas Duda tied a career-high with four hits and also drove in two runs to help the New York Mets to a 7-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first matchup of a three-game set.

David Wright also had two RBI and Curtis Granderson drove in a run before leaving the game in the sixth inning after a collision with the right-field wall.

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.

Josh Collmenter (0-1), who made his first start of the season for Arizona, pitched four innings and allowed three runs on five hits with three strikeouts before giving way to Mike Bolsinger.

Bolsinger made his Major League debut and went three innings, allowing two runs with three strikeouts.

Recap:

Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Raul Ibanez connected on back-to-back-to-back home runs in the first inning to spark the LA Angels of Anaheim to a 14-2 blowout victory over the New York Mets in the rubber match of a three-game interleague series.

Hank Conger tacked on a two-run blast in the home run barrage against Bartolo Colon (1-2), who surrendered four of the Angels' five round-trippers and was tagged for nine runs on 11 hits over just five innings.

C.J. Wilson (2-1) was much more effective on the hill, striking out nine over seven frames and limiting New York to two runs on six hits and three walks.

All nine hitters in Los Angeles' starting lineup recorded a hit and scored at least one run. Ian Stewart homered and drove in three, while Trout and J.B. Shuck each finished with three hits and an RBI.

David Wright singled in a run in the first inning and Juan Lagares scored in the fifth on Eric Young's double-play ball to account for New York's offense.

The first two games of this series went extra innings, but Sunday's meeting was all Angels from start to finish -- beginning with a four-spot in the first frame.

Trout hit a payoff pitch deep to straightaway center for his fourth home run of the season, Pujols launched one into the left-field seats and Ibanez cranked a 2-1 fastball deep to right for his second homer in as many games.

It was the first time the Angels hit three consecutive homers since July 27, 2009, and Kole Calhoun nearly made it four in a row with a shot to right- center. The ball hit off the wall for a double, though, and Calhoun came around on Stewart's two-out two-bagger for a 4-1 cushion.

The first five hitters in the home fourth reached base and three came around to score, as Erick Aybar tripled in a pair and trotted home on Shuck's base hit.

Conger took Colon deep in the fifth for a 9-2 advantage, and Scott Rice yielded a pair of runs in the sixth when he loaded the bases, issued a free pass to Ibanez and uncorked a wild pitch that brought in Trout.

Another wild pitch, this one from John Lannan, allowed Calhoun to score in the eighth, and Stewart's two-run homer later in the frame accounted for the final margin.

Recap:

Anthony Recker's solo home run in the 13th inning sent the New York Mets past the LA Angels of Anaheim, 7-6, on Saturday.

Raul Ibanez forced extra innings for the second straight night with a three- run blast off Jose Valverde in the ninth, but the rest of the Mets' bullpen kept the Angels hitless over the final four innings.

John Lannan (1-0) retired the last six Angels hitters and earned the win a day after New York dropped the opener of this three-game interleague set, 5-4, in 11 innings.

Matt Shoemaker (0-1), who worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the 12th, stayed on the hill the next frame and grooved a high fastball to Recker that was tomahawked into the left-field seats for the game-deciding blast.

Omar Quintanilla's two-out, two-run single off Kevin Jepsen in the away ninth gave the Mets some breathing room at 6-3, and Valverde was on the verge of closing out the win after retiring retired Albert Pujols and Howie Kendrick.

Valverde had David Freese in a 2-2 count, but Freese kept the inning alive with a base hit up the middle. Erick Aybar took a 3-1 pitch off the plate to set the stage for Ibanez, and the 41-year-old slugger crushed a middle-in fastball deep into the right-field seats to send the home fans into a frenzy.

Ibanez's homer wasted a quality start from Jon Niese, who lasted 7 1/3 innings and gave up six hits and three runs -- two on solo homers by Chris Iannetta and Collin Cowgill.

Recker also had a two-run single for the Mets, while Quintanilla had three of the club's 11 hits.

Jered Weaver was on cruise control after surrendering a solo home run to Lucas Duda in the second inning, but New York rallied against the right-hander with two outs in the seventh.

Duda singled to put runners on the corners with two outs, and Juan Lagares chased Weaver with an RBI single to left. Recker greeted Fernando Salas with a blooper to center that fell in front of a diving Mike Trout, and Duda and Lagares came across to give the Mets their first lead.

Weaver was charged with four runs despite allowing only three hits. He issued four walks and was on the verge of falling to 0-3 for the first time in his nine-year career before Ibanez turned his outing into a no-decision.

Niese gave up an RBI single to Pujols in the first inning and served up homers to Iannetta and Cowgill in the fifth and sixth, respectively. Cowgill found the rocks beyond the wall in left-center, while Cowgill, the Mets' starting center fielder on Opening Day last year, sent one into the left-field seats.

Mets Notes - The Mets have held a lead at some point in 10 of their 11 games this season ... Old Friend Collin Cowgill finished with two hits and two runs scored and threw a runner out at home from left field in the first inning ...

Recap:

Video: Link - With the bases loaded in the 11th inning, Hank Conger took a Jeurys Familia fastball off his right rib cage to force in Raul Ibanez and give the Angels a 5-4 victory over the New York Mets.

Ibanez opened the deciding frame with a single to right and moved to second when Familia (0-2), in his third inning of relief, uncorked a wild pitch.

Ibanez alertly advanced to third ahead of David Freese's slow-rolling groundout to short, and a pair of intentional walks set the stage for Conger.

The Angels, who stranded 14 runners over the first 10 innings, received a solo homer from Mike Trout and a tying two-run blast from J.B. Shuck in the sixth.

Angels relievers retired the final 12 New York hitters, with Michael Kohn (1-0) tossing a perfect 11th to earn the win.

Josh Satin recorded a two-run double and d'Arnaud had a solo homer for the Mets, who were coming off a series win in Atlanta.

Both starters gave up four runs in their outings, with Tyler Skaggs giving up nine hits over seven innings for the Angels and Dillon Gee yielding six hits and four walks before being pulled with two outs in the sixth.

Eric Young and Daniel Murphy each singled to start the game, and the Mets only got one run out of it when David Wright bounced into a double play.

Trout hammered one over the wall in left-center in the bottom half, and d'Arnaud hit one to roughly the same spot to open the third.

Chris Iannetta's two-out, RBI single in the second had given the Angels the lead, and Satin put the Mets in front in the fourth when he found the gap in left to bring home Andrew Brown and Curtis Granderson.

Gee was cruising along until issuing a walk to Howie Kendrick in the sixth, then he caught too much of the plate on an inside fastball to Shuck, who turned on it and found the seats just inside the right-field foul pole.

Albert Pujols grounded out harmlessly to third to leave the bases loaded in the home eighth, and left two on in the 10th with a chopper back to the mound.
