Mets 5, Dodgers 3: Three Up, Three Down

Every once in a while, the Mets win.

citifield5-22

Three Up
Jon Niese:
Outside of a blip in his previous outing, Niese has done nothing but give the Mets quality innings. The left-handed delivered seven more of them in Thursday’s win, even adding an RBI double off Zack Greinke.

Eric Campbell: So apparently Soup can play outfield, too. His catch to rob Hanley Ramirez in the eighth inning very well might have saved the Mets the game.

Curtis Granderson: Maybe he’s heating up, maybe he’s not. We’ve seen false starts before from Granderson, but it’s hard to argue with a double, a triple, an RBI and a run scored in four plate appearances.

Three Down
Daniel Murphy:
An 0-for-4 at the plate and a fielding error on defense was what Murphy contributed to this one. Not his best night.

Wilmer Flores: Robbed in the second inning, Flores did go on to single and score. But he also struck out twice on a night when the rest of his teammates avoided bad outcomes at the plate.

Lucas Duda: Hitless! So you get a down. But props on the stolen base from the big fella.

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.
