7/10/2013 @ SAN FRANCISCO  
ARIZONA: HITTING: Arizona's offense placed ninth in the majors in runs (4.5 per game), homers (172) and OPS (.736), thanks in big part to its young outfield trio. OF JUSTIN UPTON, 24, had a career year and led his team with a .289 BA, 31 HR, 88 RBI, 105 runs and a .369 OBP. OF GERARDO PARRA may have won a Gold Glove, but OF JASON KUBEL is the new leftfielder. Kubel's power numbers will improve in the desert. OF CHRIS YOUNG's .236 BA was poor, but his .331 OBP allowed him to score 89 times and swipe a team-high 22 SB. 1B PAUL GOLDSCHMIDT, 24, belted 30 homers in 103 Double-A games and continued his power in the majors with eight bombs in 156 at-bats. 3B RYAN ROBERTS (19 HR, 86 runs) and C MIGUEL MONTERO (18 HR, 86 RBI) also had career-best seasons. 2B AARON HILL was a great midseason acquisition from Toronto, tallying an .878 OPS in 33 games with Arizona. SS STEPHEN DREW batted only .252 with 5 HR in half a season before fracturing his ankle. He'll probably return in early May, and speedy WILLIE BLOOMQUIST will replace him in the starting lineup.
STARTING PITCHING: D-backs starters won 71 games, sixth-most in baseball. IAN KENNEDY won 21 of those contests and led the team with a 2.88 ERA and 198 strikeouts. He also held batters to a .210 BA at hitter-friendly Chase Field. DANIEL HUDSON was strong in all facets as well, notching 16 wins, 169 K and a 3.49 ERA. He pitches like a seasoned veteran, but he's only 25. Newcomer TREVOR CAHILL was 6-1 with a 1.79 ERA in his first 10 starts before finishing 6-13 with a 5.25 ERA. Don't expect a huge comeback going from a pitcher's park to a hitter's park. The Diamondbacks brought back innings eater JOE SAUNDERS, which closed the door for stud prospect WADE MILEY to begin 2012 in Arizona's starting rotation. Once the first-round draft pick from 2008 cuts down on his walks, everything else should fall into place, and he should be pitching for the big club come September. JOSH COLLMENTER burst on the scene with his crazy delivery and was unhittable in his first six starts (1.05 ERA, 0.76 WHIP). He predictably tailed off, but still led the rotation with a 1.07 WHIP, walking just 28 batters in 154.1 innings.
RELIEF PITCHING: Arizona led the majors with 58 saves, as J.J. PUTZ tallied 45 of those. He didn't allow a run in his final 18 appearances, finishing with a 2.17 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 9.5 K per 9 IP. He was unhittable on the road, giving up just one run on nine hits in 24.1 innings (.113 opp. BA). Putz does have a history of being injured, and if he gets hurt again, DAVID HERNANDEZ proved a worthy replacement, saving 11 games last year and posting a strong 10.0 K per 9 IP rate. He held opponents to a meager .193 BA. BRAD ZIEGLER was even better after Arizona acquired him at the deadline. In 23 appearances with the D-backs, the side-arming Ziegler notched a 1.74 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.
NY METS: HITTING: The Mets will be moving in the fences at Citi Field by as much as 12 feet and reducing the height to eight feet, making the park more homer-friendly. The loss of Jose Reyes and his NL-leading average at the top of the order weakens an already subpar lineup. 3B DAVID WRIGHT is coming off his worst season (.254 BA, 14 HR, 61 RBI) and could be traded at the July 31 deadline. New OF ANDRES TORRES provides very little at the plate (.221 BA, .312 OBP), but the future is bright for youngsters OF LUCAS DUDA (.852 OPS) and 1B IKE DAVIS (.926 OPS), who missed most of 2011 with an ankle injury. OF JASON BAY (.245 BA) continues to be a colossal bust. SS RUBEN TEJADA will be tasked with trying to replace Reyes. The 22-year-old made great strides last year, batting .319 after August 1. DANIEL MURPHY hit .320 last year, and will start at second, possibly losing AB in a platoon with JUSTIN TURNER. C JOSH THOLE hits well enough to be an above-average starting catcher.
STARTING PITCHING: With the fences moving forward at Citi Field, the entire Mets pitching staff takes a hit. JOHAN SANTANA will be ready for Opening Day, but it's hard to have much faith that he'll remain healthy for an entire season. His velocity on his fastball is not what it used to be, topping out in the high-80's. MIKE PELFREY benefitted most from the pitcher-friendly ballpark with serviceable home numbers (3.94 ERA, 1.38 WHIP) and atrocious road statistics (5.49 ERA, 1.56 WHIP). JONATHON NIESE was also much better at Citi Field (3.54 ERA) than he was on the road (5.33 ERA), but he posted 14 games of 6+ strikeouts for the second straight season. DILLON GEE began the season 7-0 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.08 WHIP, but closed the 2011 campaign with a 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in his final 17 starts. Knuckle-balling R.A. DICKEY posted a second straight solid season with New York, notching a 3.28 ERA and a solid 1.23 WHIP. At age 37, he hopes to keep his pitches dancing in the smaller home ballpark.
RELIEF PITCHING: Two former Blue Jays late-innings relievers, FRANK FRANCISCO and JON RAUCH, were signed from Toronto to pitch at the back of the bullpen. Francisco will likely get first crack at the ninth-inning role, saving 17 games last year and keeping his strikeout rate above one per inning for the fourth straight year. Rauch is an imposing figure at 6-foot-11, but he posted a 1.35 WHIP and paltry 6.2 strikeout rate last year. But 52 saves since 2008 makes him a worthy candidate for ninth-inning duty. RAMON RAMIREZ was part of the Andres Torres/Angel Pagan trade and he should be a valuable set-up man. He had a strong two-year stint with San Francisco, posting a 2.07 ERA and 1.09 WHIP.

(Corrects Parra's strikeouts vs. Harvey)

*Diamondbacks-Mets Preview* ===========================


Arizona (42-41) at New York (35-45), 7:10 p.m. EDT

The Mets hope Tuesday marked a new era at Citi Field.

New York will look to translate the momentum gained from a seven-run seventh inning into a third win in three nights over the slumping Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.

The Mets (35-45) had been held to five runs or fewer in 30 straight home games when they came up to bat following the seventh-inning stretch Tuesday. During that span, they hit .209, while being held to 20 home runs and nine stolen bases.

On Monday, they nearly approached a mark of futility set earlier in the season when they left 22 runners on base in a 20-inning loss to Miami, leaving 20 on base. On Tuesday, however, they were deadly efficient, stranding just three runners in their 9-1 victory over the Diamondbacks (42-41). They refused to let a lengthy rain delay get in their way, finishing 6 of 8 with runners in scoring position.

"I know we haven't scored a lot of runs here in this ballpark, so seven was pretty good," manager Terry Collins said. "Just took an hour and a half to finally get them."

Matt Harvey (7-1, 2.00 ERA) would gladly wait an hour and a half for seven runs. The right-hander had a shot at three straight wins for the first time since he opened the season 4-0 after four starts, but the Mets bullpen coughed up a 4-1 lead to deny him the win. He certainly pitched well enough to earn his eighth victory, allowing a run and three hits over seven innings in a 6-4 loss to Washington Friday.

It marked the sixth time this season that Harvey has surrendered a single run or fewer yet failed to pick up the win. He finished with 11 strikeouts, the fifth time he has recorded 10 or more this season.

"I think you'd rather face anyone now except him," said Washington third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who went 1 for 3 against Harvey with a single and a strikeout.

Harvey recorded his first double-digit strikeout performance in his major league debut against Arizona on July 26. In his only career appearance against the Diamondbacks, Harvey struck out 11 and allowed three hits in 5 1-3 scoreless innings. He fanned Paul Goldschmidt three times and Gerardo Parra twice.

Parra missed Tuesday's game after sustaining a bandaged arm and scrapes on his face while attempting a diving catch on the warning track the previous night, but manager Kirk Gibson said he had been due for a day off regardless. The right fielder had been slumping with just four singles in his last 28 at-bats. Shortstop Didi Gregorius was no different with a .185 average since June 8. He went 0 for 3 Tuesday. Overall, Arizona is averaging 2.7 runs per game while losing eight of nine.

"We're not really clicking on anything right now," Arizona pitcher Patrick Corbin said.

Randall Delgado (0-2, 4.05) will look to help snap the Diamondbacks' season-worst five-game skid and his own personal nine-start winless streak.

In his last nine starts, he is 0-6 with a 4.28 ERA, hampered by six runs of support during that stretch.

Delgado allowed two runs, eight hits and three walks in six innings of a 3-0 loss to Atlanta on Friday.

Delgado is just one of many struggling Arizona pitchers at the moment. The Diamondbacks have a 6.85 ERA during their five-game slide and have allowed a .330 average to opposing batters.
