Wilson Ramos talked himself into the lineup. His calm approach at the plate took care of the rest.
The New York Mets couldn't hit. And on the game's final play they didn't throw or catch very well, either.
Zack Wheeler pitched effectively, New York's hitters lashed balls all over Chase Field and the Mets walked away with a much-needed win.
Zack Wheeler's latest trip to his home state was ruined by Jason Heyward and Ervin Santana.
The Mets have chosen right-hander Dillon Gee as their Opening Day starter, manager Terry Collins announced on Tuesday.
Even Zack Wheeler admits the Mets could be working towards 2015. He has a hard time not thinking about the future and wondering what the team will be capable of.
As they've done for two years running, the New York Mets are inviting their top pitching prospect to spring training to compete for a roster spot.
"It's been a bunch of bad starts in a row here," said Wheeler, who has not won since April 14, "so I need to hurry up and turn it around and get back on the right track."
"It has been very difficult," Wheeler said. "We haven't played well this series. It's a tough road trip, but I think we have a good group of guys, and I think we can turn it around when we get back home."
