Preview: Game 104 - Mets at Brewers - Niese vs Peralta

Preview: Game 104
New York Mets (49-54) at Milwaukee Brewers (58-46)

Probable Pitchers:
Jon Niese (5-5, 3.13 ERA) vs Wily Peralta (11-6, 3.58)
TV- SNY - Radio - WOR 710 AM - First Pitch: 7:10 PM


Lucas Duda has homered on three of his last four hits, and his latest got the New York Mets a dramatic victory.

They may need more late heroics to beat the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers again considering how they've fared against Wily Peralta.

Duda attempts to continue his success at Miller Park as the Mets attempt to solve Peralta for the first time Saturday night.

Duda is 4 for 13 (.308) over the past four games, and three of those hits have left the yard. He homered just twice in his previous 20 games.

The first baseman leads the Mets (49-54) with a career-high 17 homers and hit one in each of the first two matchups of this four-game set, but his latest came in clutch fashion Friday. He capped a three-run ninth by connecting for a two-run shot off former Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez in a 3-2 win.

Duda seems rather comfortable in Milwaukee (58-46), where he has three homers, two doubles and six RBIs in five career games. However, he's 0 for 4 with two strikeouts against Peralta (11-6, 3.58 ERA), who is aiming to set a career high in wins by helping Milwaukee bounce back from its first loss in five games.

Peralta has won his last two starts in impressive fashion, allowing two runs -- one earned -- and six hits in 14 innings.

The right-hander could be in for another strong showing since he's been dominant in winning both of his career starts against the Mets.

Peralta held them to a run and four hits in 6 1/3 innings of a 3-1 road victory June 11, and he yielded two hits in eight innings of a 3-0 victory at Miller Park on Sept. 16, 2012.

David Wright is 0 for 6 against Peralta but coming off his third multihit effort in five days.

The Mets will counter with Jonathon Niese (5-5, 3.13), who is looking to show some improvement after struggling in his return from the disabled list. The left-hander, who was out with a strained shoulder, allowed four runs and a season-high 11 hits in six innings of Monday's 5-2 loss at Seattle.

Perhaps facing the Brewers could help. Niese is 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA over his last four starts against them, and both victories came at Miller Park. In his only start versus Milwaukee this year, he yielded one run with eight strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings of a 5-1 loss in 13 on June 12.

He's held slugger Ryan Braun to 1 for 10 over the past four years, including 0 for 4 with two strikeouts last month.

Braun went 0 for 4 on Friday, snapping a 12-game hitting streak overall and 15-game run at home. He's still batting .370 with three homers and seven RBIs over his last seven home meetings with the Mets.

Preview: Game 65 - Brewers at Mets - Peralta vs deGrom

Preview: Game 65
Milwaukee Brewers (38-27) at New York Mets (29-35)

Probable Pitchers:
Wily Peralta (5-5) 3.03 ERA vs Jacob deGrom (0-2) 3.19 ERA
TV - SNY - Radio WOR 710 AM - First Pitch 7:10 PM


New York (29-35) is among the worst offensive teams in the majors with a .234 average, .351 slugging percentage and 47 homers. The Mets are batting .228 over the past seven games but homered on two of their five hits while ending a six-game slide with Tuesday's 6-2 win over Milwaukee.

The victory in the opener of this three-game series came after general manager Sandy Alderson refuted reports that Collins' job was in danger.

The Mets are aiming for their first four-game home winning streak since Aug. 6-20, but they're batting .202 over their last three at Citi Field.

Taylor Teagarden may have done enough to earn another start behind the plate after hitting a grand slam in his Mets debut, hours after being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace demoted catcher Travis d'Arnaud.

Despite Teagarden's unexpected slam, the Mets will likely continue to rely on a staff that has compiled a 1.33 ERA over the past three home games.

Jacob deGrom owns a 1.83 ERA in three home starts, but he's still seeking his first win anywhere in the majors.

The rookie right-hander has allowed seven runs in 11 1/3 innings while not getting a decision over his last two starts -- both on the road. Each of his three previous outings came at Citi Field, and he'll be looking to rebound from his worst performance of the season.

DeGrom (0-2, 3.19 ERA) was tagged for four runs in five innings of Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs. He served up a two-run homer to opposing starter Travis Wood.

The Brewers (38-27) will counter with Wily Peralta (5-5, 3.03), who has struggled with his command while splitting his past two starts. The right-hander allowed 10 runs and three homers with five walks in 10 2/3 innings over those outings after he had a 2.12 ERA in his first 10 games.

Peralta's recent issues were on display during Thursday's 8-5 win at Minnesota. He yielded four runs with three walks while throwing 101 pitches in five innings, but was backed by six runs and got his first win in six starts.

Peralta had little trouble in his only meeting with the Mets on Sept. 16, 2012, allowing two hits in eight innings of a 3-0 victory.
