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.

Three Up, Three Down: The Lost Episodes

All sorts of apologies for the lack of updates here, as I was sidelined by a nasty virus (probably the same one that has affected several Mets players this month). Here’s what I missed:

April 9: Braves 4, Mets 3
Three Up: Juan Lagares, Jeurys Familia, David Wright
Three Down: Zack Wheeler, Ruben Tejada, John Lannan

April 10: Mets 6, Braves 4
Three Up: Eric Young, Daniel Murphy, Carlos Torres
Three Down: Travis d’Arnaud, Ruben Tejada, Jenrry Mejia

Mets 4, Braves 0: Three Up, Three Down

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

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.

Mets 4, Reds 3: Three Up, Three Down

Three Up
1. Lucas Duda: Two home runs as the new starter at first base. That’ll earn you props every time.

2. Jenrry Mejia: It may not have been the most efficient start in the world, but it got the job done. Good enough for a Mets team that badly needs consistency.

3. Anthony Recker: How about that throw to nail known speedster Billy Hamilton trying to steal second? Not bad, Recker.

Three Down
1. Travis d’Arnaud: Through four games, he’s given the Mets virtually nothing. A critical player for them, d’Arnaud must be better.

2. Ruben Tejada: Tejada is quietly batting just .231 himself. This is more of a cumulative “down” that anything he did particularly wrong Friday.

3. John Lannan: Very little has gone right for Lannan so far this season, making him one of the biggest culprits in a greater bullpen struggle.
