Mets 12, Yankees 7: Three Up, Three Down

Once again beating the Yankees at their own game.

metscetera

Three Up
Curtis Granderson: 
Think he likes hitting in this place? That’s two home runs for Granderson in as many games back at Yankee Stadium. He even added an opposite-field single to beat the shift in the ninth.

Daniel Murphy: He’s finally finding his missing power stroke now, with a key three-run homer Tuesday to give the Mets a nice cushion in the fifth. After going homerless in his first 28 games this season, Murphy has three in his last eight.

Daisuke Matsuzaka: Matsuzaka’s performance was absolutely crucial for the Mets, cleaning up Zack Wheeler’s mess in the fifth and carrying his team all the way to the ninth. He allowed just one hit.

Three Down:
Zack Wheeler: One hundred and eighteen pitches in 4 1/3 innings are not acceptable. Neither are six walks. Wheeler knows that — he spoke yesterday about the importance of efficiency — and is lucky it did not come back to hurt the Mets.

Travis d’Arnaud: Aside from serving as Wheeler’s batterymate, d’Arnaud went 0-for-5 at the plate with two strikeouts.

Chris Young: Young also finished 0-for-5, after coming up with what turned out to be the game-winning homer one day earlier. The Mets are still bullish on where Young is at.

Marlins 4, Mets 3: Three Up, Three Down

The bullpen has sprung some leaks.

marlinspark

Three Up
1. Jon Niese: 
Over his last four starts, Jon Niese holds a 1.01 ERA. When he walked off the mound Monday night, Niese ranked seventh in baseball in ERA — not bad for a pitcher sporting major injury concerns heading into the season.

2. Kyle Farnsworth: Nice work by Farnsworth to escape an eighth-inning jam of Daisuke Matsuzaka’s making. If he could regularly pitch this well in save situations, the Mets might be onto something.

3. Curtis Granderson: Suddenly, no Mets hitter is hotter than Granderson, who is 8-for-20 with two home runs over a six-game hitting streak. The Mets hope only that this lasts.

Three Down
1. Daisuke Matsuzaka: In a way, Terry Collins may have been less offended had Matsuzaka simply opened the eighth inning by giving up three straight homers. At least that would mean he was throwing the ball over the plate.

2. Scott Rice: Have to retire lefties. Can’t not retire lefties.

3. Omar Quintanilla: Had Quintanilla caught Casey McGehee’s hot shot right at him in the eighth, the Mets would have had a real chance to win regardless of their bullpen hiccups. Alas, Quintanilla did not.
