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 6, Phillies 1: Three Up, Three Down

You may be cold, but Jon Niese isn’t.

CBPrain

Three Up
1. Jon Niese: He has a knack for pitching well in poor conditions. Niese said he spent plenty of time by the heaters in the dugout between innings, jamming his hands in his jacket pockets.

2. Daniel Murphy: A nice three-hit night for Murphy, whose stolen base streak remains alive thanks to a beneficial scorer’s ruling.

3. Ruben Tejada: If Tejada hits even a little bit, it will be a boon for the offense. Right now, he’s hitting a little bit.

Three Down
1. Eric Young: A 1-for-5 atop the order dragged Young’s on-base percentage down to  .315, and he flat-out dropped a foul fly ball off Chase Utley’s bat in the seventh.

2. David Wright: One of the most bizarre aspects of April for the Mets is the fact that they are winning — and winning often — without much meaningful offensive contributions from Wright. He was 0-for-5 with a double play in Tuesday’s win.

3. Daisuke Matsuzaka: This is a tough “Down” considering Matsuzaka pitched a scoreless inning, but walking the leadoff man is not a good habit.

Mets 2, Cardinals 0: Three Up, Three Down

Mejia plus Rice plus Torres plus Farnsworth equals shutout.

citifieldrightfield

Three Up
1. Jenrry Mejia:
His health remains a big “if,” but Mejia is pitching dynamite ball. His career-long scoreless innings streak currently stands at 13 2/3.

2. Travis d’Arnaud: In addition to catching a shutout, d’Arnaud came through with two hits and an RBI at the plate. His offense finally seems to be turning a corner.

3. Ruben Tejada: Props to Tejada for two fine defensive plays. He’s still having a dreadful season, but perhaps Monday’s game was the start of something better.

Three Down
1. Curtis Granderson: The boos are growing louder every day. To Granderson’s credit, he is making no excuses.  But he’s now mired in an 0-for-21 funk.

2. Chris Young: After reaching base on an error in the sixth, Young nearly killed the Mets’ best rally when Yadier Molina caught him attempting to advance on a would-be wild pitch. He made the first out of the inning at third, a definite  baseball no-no.

3. Eric Young: This is a tough “Down,” considering Young finished 1-for-4 with a run scored. But he also left the bases loaded with two outs in the sixth, at a time when the Mets could have broken open the game.
