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 4, Marlins 3: Three Up, Three Down

The Mets are on pace for 92 wins.

Three Up
1. Curtis Granderson: You hit a walk-off, you get an “Up.” That’s the deal. Always has been. Always will be.

2. Omar Quintanilla: With respect to Kirk Nieuwenhuis and his rally-aiding double, Quintanilla came through with the game-tying hit on a heck of an at-bat. It’s even harder to have that kind of plate discipline when you play as infrequently as Quintanilla does.

3. Zack Wheeler: This is a tentative “Up,” because Wheeler knows he must be more efficient. Six innings in 110 pitches is not going to cut it for a Mets team still trying to find a back-end bullpen mix that works. But boy was Wheeler sharp when he needed to be.

Three Down
1. Chris Young: A tough 0-for-4 from Young, who had been showing real signs of light at the plate in recent days. Any offense from Young would be much-appreciated by the Mets.

2. Gonzalez Germen: Five straight outs followed by two straight homers. Germen easily could have been the losing pitcher in this game, had things not broken in the other direction.

3. Eric Young: This is a real tough “Down” to give, but Young easily could have been 0-for-4 had his third-inning single been ruled an error on the shortstop. Still, consider this a “Down” by default, because everyone else on the team deserved it even less.
