Preview: Cardinals at Mets

The New York Mets signed Curtis Granderson to a four-year, $60 million contract during the offseason, and still are waiting to get any sort of return on their investment. Granderson carries a .116 batting average into the third contest of a four-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday while in a 4-for-50 rut and hitless in his last 22 at-bats. "I wish I knew," Granderson told reporters when asked about the slump. "Because if I knew, I would hopefully be able to figure it out."

Mets 4, Braves 3 (14)

Mets 4, Braves 3 (14): Curtis Granderson’s sacrifice fly scored Kirk Nieuwenhuis with the game-winner as host New York salvaged the final game of a weekend set. Granderson, hitless in his last 16 at-bats, lofted a fly ball into left-center field with one out, and Nieuwenhuis – who walked off Gus Schlosser (0-1) leading off the 14th – easily beat Justin Upton’s throw to the plate. David Wright extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a 4-for-6 performance and Lucas Duda added two hits for New York.

MLB Team Report - New York Mets - INSIDE PITCH PHOENIX -- Even though injuries are thinning the New York Mets' ranks of available outfielders, Lucas Duda is not an option to play the outfield on a regular or even semi-regular basis, manager Terry Collins said. Duda played left field on an emergency basis for the final three innings of the Mets' 7-3 victory Monday in Arizona, but it will take another emergency to send Duda out there again, although he told reporters he is more than willing.

RHP Jenrry Mejia was removed after giving up two hits in five shutout innings when a blister tore open on the top of his right middle finger. "He's got one hell of a blister," manager Terry Collins said. "Tore it up completely. Ripped open. I would say there is a concern." Mejia retired the first nine batters before issuing a walk to Arizona leadoff hitter RF Gerardo Parra in the fourth inning.

1B Lucas Duda tied a career high with four hits, all singles, while driving in two runs and scoring one. "Just lucky, I guess," said Duda, who finished the game in left field after injuries claimed RF Curtis Granderson and CF Juan Lagares. Duda has four four-hit games, the last coming June 17, 2013, at Atlanta. He is 9-for-22 on the Mets' road trip.
