NEW YORK —For Justin Turner and the New York Mets, this was a true walk-off
win. Stephon Gilmore Jersey . Turner drew a
bases-loaded walk in a sensational 13-pitch at-bat and Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit an
RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning as the Mets rallied past Heath Bell
and the Miami Marlins 3-2 Thursday. Pitching for the first time in a week, and
working in a steady drizzle, Bell (0-3) couldnt find the plate and sent the
Marlins to their fifth straight loss. The All-Star closer walked four and threw
a whopping 46 pitches. Turner batted for reliever Ramon Ramirez with one out.
The Mets pinch hitter deluxe fell behind in the count 0-2 and later fouled off
seven pitches before his walk tied it at 2. “That situation, I think its what
every kid dreams about,” Turner said. “Except that they dream about hitting it
out of the park, not drawing a walk.” After a forceout at the plate, Nieuwenhuis
hit a one-hopper off the right-field wall. Before that drive, the Mets were 0
for 16 with two walks when batting with the bases loaded this season. “My hands
are numb from clapping so hard,” Mets starting pitcher Jonathon Niese said. The
excitement, however, was tempered by the news that Mets starter Mike Pelfrey has
a partial tear of a ligament in his right elbow. Pelfrey said he is “99 per
cent” certain he will have reconstructive Tommy John surgery that will sideline
him until next year. The Mets trailed 2-1 when David Wright drew a leadoff walk
in the ninth. One-out passes to Ike Davis and Josh Thole loaded the bases for
Turner, whos 3 for 8 as a pinch hitter this year. With each foul ball, Turner
became more determined. After four straight fouls on a full count, Turner took a
fastball low and away. “When youre up there for that long, you kind of get that
locked-in feeling,” he said. “I dont know if hes ever thrown that many pitches
in an inning in his career.” The 46 were indeed the most Bell has thrown in a
save situation. In five other outings, hes tossed more. “I felt really good. I
felt that my pitches were there. I felt like I threw the pitches where I wanted
for the most part. I think 95 per cent of the time, I was right where I needed
to be,” Bell said. “Yeah, I did walk some guys.” As for the matchup with Turner,
“I thought Id get him, and then I just pulled on a fastball,” Bell said. “That
pitch, I wish I could have that one back.” The Mets finished off a three-game
sweep. They were helped by Bells third blown save in five chances during his
first year with the Marlins. It was the second time this series that the Marlins
walked four consecutive batters. Four pitchers combined to do it Tuesday night.
Ramirez (2-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Jose Reyes,
Hanley Ramirez and most of the Marlins remained stuck in hitting slumps. Miami
scored a total of only six runs during its five-game trip to Washington and Citi
Field. Reyes was hitless in four tries and went 1 for 12 in his first series
against his former team. Booed loudly in every at-bat, the fleet leadoff man
grounded into a close, inning-ending double play in the eighth with runners at
the corners. Ramirez, the former NL batting champion, also was hitless in four
at-bats and is an 0-for-20 rut. Niese and Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco each
pitched seven sharp innings. Niese gave up two runs on four hits in seven
innings, walking none and striking out six. Nolasco allowed one run and five
hits. The Mets won while starting an entirely homegrown lineup for the first
time since 1971, according to research provided to New York by the Elias Sports
Bureau. Gaby Sanchez made it 1-all with his first home run of the season, a long
drive leading off the Miami third. Omar Infante hit a leadoff double in the
Miami fifth and took third on a bloop single by Giancarlo Stanton—the Marlins
had been hitless in their previous 24 at-bats with runners in scoring position.
Befitting their recent offensive woes, the Marlins then went ahead without a
hit, getting a run when Sanchez bounced into a double play. Ramirez, Reyes and
Stanton all had early fielding problems. Stanton dropped a long fly to right
field by Nieuwenhuis leading off the Mets first for a triple and Ruben Tejada
followed with a sacrifice fly. Wright later grounded a double down the third
base line past Ramirez. The converted shortstop tapped his glove when the ball
was hit, anticipating a play, but let it get past him. A trainer came from the
dugout to check if Ramirez was OK. In the second, Reyes seemed to nonchalantly
chase a soft liner by Davis. The ball glanced off the All-Star shortstops glove
and was ruled a single. NOTES: Mets Triple-A OF Adam Loewen was put on the
disabled list with a stress fracture in his right foot. ... The Mets are 5-1 in
one-run games, the Marlins are 2-5. Mario Williams Jersey . The Ancaster, Ont.,
native became the first Canadian to break the one-minute mark in the even with a
stunning time of 59.85 seconds. “I knew I had it in me,” Dickens told
CTVOlympics. Donald Jones Jersey . Michel agreed to a
contract until the end of the season that will automatically be extended an
extra year if he manages to guide the Andalusian club to a top-four finish and a
place in next seasons Champions League. http://www.buffalobillsroom.com/scott-chandler-jerseys
. Pirog has held the title since July 2010 and was never seriously troubled by
Ishida in Moscow on Tuesday night. The Russian is hoping for a showdown with IBF
champion Daniel Geale of Australia. Rian Lindell Jersey . Wilin Rosario hit a
two-run homer and Colorado took advantage of four Dodgers errors to romp past
Los Angeles 13-3 Friday night for its season-high fifth straight win. Steve Johnson Jersey . Zeng clocked four
minutes 33 seconds to set the new record, beating Qu Xuelong from Tianjin to
take the first gold of this tournament. Seldom did I beat Qu. He is still the
best pursuit specialist in China.ARLINGTON, Texas—The Texas Rangers are
promoting top pitching prospect Martin Perez to the major leagues for the first
time. The Rangers said the left-hander will be recalled from Triple-A Round Rock
on Tuesday. They did not immediately announce a corresponding roster move. Perez
is 5-5 with a 4.59 ERA in 15 starts at Round Rock, but has allowed just twoo
runs on four hits in 16 innings in his last two starts, both wins. C.J. Spiller Jersey. The 21-year-old
Venezuelan signed with the Rangers as a teenager five years ago. Fellow Rangers
rookie Justin Grimm was roughed up in his second start for Texas on Monday
night. He gave up eight hits and six earned runs in one inning in an 8-2 loss to
Detroit. ’ ’ ’
