Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda power Mets in 11-2 blowout over Phillies

It was a hard job the Mets asked of Zack Wheeler last season. At 23-years old, he was not expected to follow in the footsteps of Matt Harvey. They would never ask that of him. The Mets were asking Wheeler to be a good, young pitcher maturing under the gun in the major leagues.

For Wheeler, Duda stats caught up to skills

Put your trust in the numbers, have a little patience and you’ll be rewarded. That’s been the story of the season for both Wednesday’s starting pitcher, Zack Wheeler, and Lucas Duda, who should be back in the lineup at first base for the 12:10 p.m. start against Philadelphia. Wheeler was 1-5 with a 4.63 ERA through 10 outings, entering his start against the Phillies on May 29. He allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings in a 4-1 win that day.

Terry Collins defends giving Lucas Duda, Ruben Tejada a night off

Surely, one of the joys of managing in New York must be having to defend every single lineup move. Before last night's game against the Phillies, Mets manager Terry Collins was asked why he wasn't starting Lucas Duda at first base, despite Duda's hot streak since the All-Star break and Collins' stated intention of keeping Duda in the lineup to improve his batting against lefthanded pitchers; and why he hasn't been giving Wilmer Flores more starts at shortstop.

Duda supplies power, 'happy to contribute'

Lucas Duda provided the winning hits in the New York Mets' two victories in the four-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers. Both were two-run homers that Duda crushed over the right-field fence at Miller Park. Friday night, the big blow came in the top of the ninth when the Mets rallied for three runs and beat the Brewers 3-2. Sunday, his career-high 18th home run, another two-run shot, produced a 2-0 lead that starter Jacob deGrom and relievers Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia made stand up for a victory that sent the Mets home with a .

Rapid Reaction: Mets 2, Brewers 0

MILWAUKEE -- Lucas Duda and Jacob deGrom made sure the New York Mets headed home for the first time since the All-Star break with a big 2-0 victory over Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday. The Mets finished their 10-game road trip at .500, going (1-2) in San Diego, (2-1) in Seattle and (2-2) in Milwaukee. Duda’s team-leading and career-high 18th home run was just as majestic as Friday night’s game-winning, two-run shot in the top of the ninth.
