Jay Bruce homers twice to help Mets past Rangers

Jay Bruce homers twice to help Mets past Rangers

He suddenly stopped running between first and second base, briefly holding out both hands and unsure if he had homered or not.

Although they really tried to turn their second of two games in Texas into a signature 2017 loss, the New York Mets were able to avoid catastrophe and beat the Rangers on Wednesday night.

The Mets led 3-1 after Bruce went the opposite way in the sixth for his 14th homer, a solo shot just over the 14-foot wall in left. "We had no indication at all at the end of a year ago that we'd be going through what we're going through", he said.

"We certainly needed one like that I can tell you".

Said Bruce, "It was just super high".

"Honestly I didn't know what to expect coming in", Wheeler said.

Texas, though, was still leading 5-4 after three frames.

While Darvish gave the rest of the Mets' hitter fits, Bruce nearly single handedly carried the offense against Texas' ace, and notched two of the Mets' three hits against Darvish.

"Those are fun", Hoying said. "I was lucky enough I made some quality pitches to do that". He pitched 3.1 innings, allowing eight hits, four runs, and striking out two batters.

The Rangers, as they have so often done this year, scored the first run of the game; Delino DeShields' leadoff single up the middle was followed by a Shin-Soo Choo walk and an Elvis Andrus single into the fiery blinding sunosphere in left field.

With Rangers hitters swinging and missing at a record pace, and the Houston Astros off to a franchise-best start after a weekend series sweep of their instate division rival, two-time defending champion Texas went into its off day the first Monday of June already with a 15-game deficit.

"It got a little worse". This will be the first game of his career against the Rangers. We'll see where he is at and have the doctor look at him.

Texas closer Matt Bush (2-1) took over to start the ninth. The right-hander gave up eight runs and 10 hits to the Rangers, after Milwaukee had seven runs and eight hits off him six days earlier.

Zack Wheeler produced a stellar start and Jay Bruce homered twice off Yu Darvish before Jerry Blevins wasted the lead, but the Mets (25-32) rebounded for a series split.

"I didn't honestly have a clue where the ball was going the first inning but after that settled down and found it quick", Wheeler said.

Beltre sat out the first two months of the 2017 season with a calf injury, but returned to the lineup for Texas on May 29.

The power display didn't hold up as deGrom (4-3) was rocked in his first career outing against Texas. Texas last month matched an Major League Baseball record for a nine-inning game with 20 strikeouts against five Boston pitchers. NY is 2-2, but its 180-166 record against AL teams is the best among NL teams since interleague play began in 1997. "Adrian plays with a different goal than most". He had been tied with Miami's Ichiro Suzuki at 299. "Sort of the main goal staying healthy and give the team a chance to win".

Mike Napoli is on the disabled list. It's part of what makes the prospect of a six-man rotation so appealing to the Mets, because the last thing they need to ponder now is removing their most reliable arm from the rotation.
