Marlins 3, Mets 0: Three Up, Three Down

Is it Henderson Alvarez, or is it the offense?

marlinspark2

Three Up
1. Bartolo Colon: 
This could have been another ugly one, but Colon recovered to throw a nice game. The Mets need him in top form every time out.

2. Daniel Murphy: Murphy was productive in three of his four at-bats, doubling twice and moving a runner from second to third with a groundout in the fourth. That’s a lot more than most Mets hitters can say.

3. Juan Lagares: As long as he keeps hitting with consistency, Lagares will remain one of the most valuable players in baseball.

Three Down
1. David Wright: Though Wright hit the ball hard several times, he finished 1-for-4 with a single. His hardest-hit ball landed in a glove, preventing Lagares from scoring in the fourth.

2. Curtis Granderson: His six-game hitting streak ended with an 0-for-4 night, including strikeouts in each of his last two at-bats.

3. Ruben Tejada: Double play, groundout, pinch-hit for. That was Tejada’s night in sum.

Mets 4, Cardinals 1: Three Up, Three Down

Bartolo Colon with the win, Daisuke Matsuzaka with the save, Bobby Abreu with a double. “I think we’re back in 1999 right now,” Anthony Recker jokes.

citifieldsunny2

Three Up
1. Bartolo Colon: Taking his nine-run Anaheim debacle out of the equation, Colon owns a 2.33 ERA with 23 strikeouts and one walk in four starts. That’s pretty darn good.

2. Daniel Murphy: Two run-scoring hits, including the ultimate game-winner in the sixth, made Murphy a valuable contributor for the Mets.

3. Daisuke Matsuzaka: Matsuzaka hardly seemed to sweat in his first career save opportunity, dispatching the Cardinals 1-2-3 in the ninth. His success gives the Mets an extra ninth-inning option going forward.

Three Down
1. Lucas Duda: Duda had been chugging along fairly well since taking over as the everyday first baseman, but his 0-for-4 earns him a “Down” on an otherwise decent offensive day for the Mets.

2. Carlos Torres: It has not hurt his bottom line yet, but Torres can’t keep allowing baserunners if he’s going to be the Mets’ primary setup man. Then again, Terry Collins can’t keep leaning on Torres every night.

3. David Wright: Another 0-fer for the captain, who is not hitting up to his usual standards. In a way, that’s good news for the Mets, who are winning while they wait for Wright to come around.

Angels 14, Mets 2: Three Up, Three Down

That was, uh…well, that was certainly something.

angelstadiumstands

Three Up
1. Juan Lagares: 
As expected, Lagares has played a flawless center field for the Mets. Not quite as expected were the four multi-hit games in 12 starts. How much of that has been luck, and how much the product of genuine improvement?

2. Jeurys Familia: Familia is a Mets pitcher who did not give up any runs on Sunday. On this day, that’s more than enough for an “Up.”

3. David Wright: Wright actually gave the Mets an early lead with his RBI single in the first, but that’s not why I’m giving him an “Up.” Good for Wright defending his teammates, even if it earned him an ejection. Knowing the captain, he wouldn’t have done it in a one-run game, but used Sunday’s blowout situation to his advantage.

Three Down
1. Bartolo Colon: Not much to say, except for the stats: six innings, 11 hits and nine earned runs. That’s enough damage for two or three outings, but Colon allowed it all in one.

2. Scott Rice: Opposing batters own a .500 on-base percentage against Rice this season. The left-hander’s ERA now stands at 13.50.

3. Eric Young, Jr.: Not only did Young go hitless at the plate, but he also misplayed two Angels hits into triples. Young is still relatively inexperienced in the outfield, but he wasn’t taking these kinds of poor routes earlier this month.

Mets 4, Braves 0: Three Up, Three Down

The Mets used three pitchers in the win. Combined age: 113.

turnerfieldaaron

Three Up
1. Bartolo Colon: 
I believe “flummoxed” is the proper term for what Colon did to a Braves lineup that was swinging out of its shoes at his pitches. An aggressive lineup against a control artist such as Colon is a recipe for pitching success.

2. Travis d’Arnaud: Two hits to snap his season 0-fer were nice, but more important was how d’Arnaud handled Colon and the Mets’ pitching staff. For all the talk about d’Arnaud’s offense, catching remains his primary job.

3. Ruben Tejada: Was this a positive blip, or might Tejada actually be turning the corner? The answer could go a long way toward solving the Mets’ early offensive woes.

Three Down
1. David Wright: An 0-for-5 dropped Wright to .192 on the season. It’s not even close to panic time for the captain, but the Mets could certainly use some production out of the three hole.

2. Lucas Duda: His two-homer game now a distant memory, Duda has not produced much of anything as the Mets’ starting first baseman. If he continues to struggle, calls for Ike Davis will only grow louder.

3. Daniel Murphy: The second baseman’s offensive struggles continued with a 1-for-5 night and two strikeouts. He did hit a few balls hard, however, and has been playing better defense in recent games.
