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.

Mets 3, Cardinals 2: Three Up, Three Down

Crazy game. Crazy garbage wind tornado.

Three Up
1. Jon Niese: 
Really nice start by Niese, who wasn’t as flashy as Michael Wacha but was a whole lot more efficient. He’s quietly been the Mets’ best starter since returning from the disabled list.

2. Travis d’Arnaud: In addition to reaching base three times, d’Arnaud saved the game for the Mets with his swipe tag on Matt Carpenter at the plate. A tough tag, and a good one.

3. Lucas Duda: The offense needed thump, and Duda provided it. The way this lineup is going, any home run is good enough for an “Up” right now.

Three Down
1. David Wright: Another 0-for-4 and three more strikeouts. As hot as Wright was earlier this month, he’s suddenly just as cold.

2. Kyle Farnsworth: Though Farnsworth ultimately earned the save, he needed Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Ruben Tejada and d’Arnaud to bail him out with perfect execution on a relay. Farnsworth gave up as many hits (three) as he recorded outs.

3. Carlos Torres: IfI were managing, I would have kept Daisuke Matsuzaka in for at least the eighth inning, and maybe the ninth. As it was, Terry Collins turned to Torres, who struggled with two hits in 2/3 innings.

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.
