    Mets, Padres Tangle in Matchup of Fringe Contenders



    Jason Vargas and Robinson Cano each turned back the clock Tuesday night and did something their younger selves rarely or ever accomplished. It's going to take a lot more than one game, though, for the New York Mets to reset the clock on their 2019 season.

    The Mets envision building on the momentum created by Vargas and Cano when New York hosts the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night in the middle game of a three-game series.

    Noah Syndergaard (7-4, 4.36 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for the Mets against the Padres' Dinelson Lamet (0-2, 5.14 ERA) in a battle of right-handers.

    Vargas and Cano lifted the Mets to victory Tuesday night, when Vargas earned by allowing only one hit in six scoreless innings and Cano enjoyed the first three-homer game of his career as he accounted for all of New York's runs in a 5-2 win.

    It was just the third time in 235 career starts that Vargas limited an opponent to one hit over at least six innings. Cano's three-homer game was the 14th in Mets' history and only the third in a home game.

    Unfortunately for the Mets, the big night by their two 36-year-old veterans did little to change the club's daunting long-term prospects. At 46-54, New York is tied with the Pittsburgh Pirates for the second-worst record in the National League. The two teams are seven games behind the second wild card, the St. Louis Cardinals.

    "We're working hard to right everything that's gone bad, and that's what we'll always do," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday night. "We wish our record was better at this point. Obviously, that's something we regret at this point."

    A poor start to the second half has left the Padres alongside the Mets as afterthoughts in the NL wild-card race. San Diego has lost eight of 10 since the All-Star break to fall to 47-53.

    But even if the Padres never get back into the race, the second half will be full of pivotal moments for one of the youngest starting rotations in baseball.

    Lamet, 27, is scheduled Wednesday to make his fourth start since returning from Tommy John surgery. He didn't factor into the decision on July 18, when he allowed three runs (one earned) over four innings as San Diego fell to the Miami Marlins, 4-3.

    Lamet, who went under the knife in April 2018, has struck out 19 but walked six in 14 innings over his first three starts.

    "The more I'm on the mound, the better I feel," Lamet told reporters after his last start. "The more batters I face, the better I feel."

    Syndergaard didn't factor into the decision on July 18, when he gave up one run over seven innings as the Mets fell to the San Francisco Giants 3-2 in 16 innings.

    Syndergaard is 1-2 with a 4.88 ERA in four career starts against the Padres. Lamet will be facing the Mets for the first time since his major league debut on May 25, 2017, when he earned the win after allowing one run over five innings in the Padres' 4-3 victory.

          Tatis, Padres Beat Mets 7-2, 3rd Win in 11 Games Since Break



          by JERRY BEACH

          -- The San Diego Padres have been linked to Noah Syndergaard in trade talks for the better part of a year. Who knows if there's a deal to be made, but there's little doubt the New York Mets would love to have some of the relievers the Padres rolled out at Citi Field on Wednesday night.

          Matt Strahm, the first of four Padres relievers, struck out four over two perfect innings to earn the win as San Diego received five scoreless innings from its bullpen in a 7-2 victory over the Mets.

          The relief outing was the longest of the season for Strahm (4-7), who made his first 15 appearances as a starter before moving to the bullpen following the All-Star break. Strahm made five starts and 36 relief appearances last year, his first with the Padres.

          "You can see him in the fifth and the sixth, you can turn around and see him in the eighth the next day," Padres manager Andy Green said. "He can pitch just about anywhere for us. Great bridge piece for us today."

          Strahm isn't the only pitcher who can handle length in relief for the Padres, who also have former starters Cal Quantrill, Logan Allen and Luis Perdomo in the bullpen as they take give rotation auditions to Adrian Morejon and Dinelson Lamet.

          The latter started and allowed two runs while throwing 80 pitches over four innings in his fourth start since returning from Tommy John surgery.

          "To go out there and give up two runs and then turn it over to `Strahmy' and the rest of the guys, that's a good recipe for a win there," Padres catcher Austin Hedges said.

          Quantrill threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. After Craig Stammen escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh and Andres Munoz worked around a walk in the eighth, Perdomo tossed a hitless ninth and has thrown 3 1/3 scoreless innings over his last two appearances.

          Over the last seven games, Padres relievers have posted a 1.27 ERA.

          "We do have some weapons now, kind of the way our bullpen's been reconstructed," Green said. "Those choices we're going to have in the fifth, sixth inning sometimes are going to be good choices."

          The Mets, on the other hand, have very few choices once the starter exits the game.

          Syndergaard (7-5) allowed three earned over seven innings and retired 10 of the final 11 batters he faced before former New York closer Jeurys Familia gave up two runs while recording just one out in the eighth.

          Familia has a 7.36 ERA in the first year of a three-year, $30 million deal. Mets relievers have combined for a 5.33 ERA.

          "We've got to keep on pitching him," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "We've got to pick situations where we think he's going to succeed, bottom of the lineup when you're down like tonight, and stick with it."

          The Mets wobbled Lamet in the first, when Jeff McNeil hit a leadoff double and scored on Michael Conforto's single. Lamet retired Amed Rosario on a flyball with the bases loaded to end the inning.

          Hedges tied the game with an RBI single in the second before the Padres scored three times in the third, when they were helped by a pair of one-out walks by Syndergaard and two misplays in left field by Dominic Smith with two outs.

          After Eric Hosmer's sacrifice fly gave the Padres the lead for good, Hunter Renfroe hit an RBI single and went to second on Smith's first error. Franmil Reyes followed with a run-scoring double and took third when Smith's throw sailed off the glove of Rosario at shortstop

          Conforto doubled in the third on scored on Robinson Cano's groundout.

          The Padres added insurance runs in the eighth when Hedges doubled home a run and Fernando Tatis Jr., who had three hits, had an RBI single. Renfroe had a sacrifice fly in the ninth.

          HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, JEFF

          McNeil celebrated the first anniversary of his big league callup by going 1 for 3. McNeil, who debuted against the Padres and singled in his only at-bat at Citi Field, is batting a major league-leading .342 this season and is hitting .337 with 57 extra-base hits in his first 150 games. He appeared in the All-Star Game earlier this month.

          "You saw what happened the last two months of last season, you're like man, that was really good," Callaway said. "You go into the season going, OK, hopefully he can do something close to what he was doing. And he's eclipsed all of that.

          "He's hitting like Pete Rose, Wade Boggs, Ichiro (Suzuki). It's unbelievable,"
          he said.

          McNeil's first 150 games do indeed compare favorably to those produced by that iconic trio. Boggs hit .357 with 35 extra-base hits and 64 RBIs in his first 150 games in 1982-83. Rose hit .271 with 37 extra-base hits and 40 RBIs in his first 150 games in 1963. And Suzuki hit .348 with 47 extra-base hits and 68 RBIs in his first 150 games in 2001.

          "He continues to do it and you don't see many weeks where he hasn't done it on a consistent basis," Callaway said.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Padres: OF Travis Jankowski went 1 for 5 Tuesday night for Triple-A El Paso. He missed the first 99 games of the season with a broken left wrist before he was activated from the injured list and optioned on Monday.

          Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (right shoulder) felt fine after throwing off the mound Tuesday and is slated to come off the injured list to start Friday night against the Pirates.

          UP NEXT

          Padres: LHP Eric Lauer (5-7, 4.31 ERA) will look to snap a six-start winless streak. He is 0-3 with a 4.60 ERA since beating Philadelphia on June 3.

          Mets: NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom (5-7, 3.02 ERA) is aiming to win consecutive starts for just the second time this year.
