Matt Harvey won his fifth straight decision, allowing five hits in 7 1/3 innings and singling in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning to lead the New York Mets over the Chicago Cubs, 3-2, on Friday.
Daniel Murphy and David Wright combined for five hits and three RBIs against Adam Wainwright, and the New York Mets snapped a six-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday.
“I don’t know what to say,” Gee said. “I didn’t feel all that bad tonight. I’m a ground-ball guy and I think seven ground balls got through. I don’t know what else to do.”
Lance Lynn overcame early control woes and St. Louis used a three-run seventh inning to beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Monday night.
“The Mets, when (starting pitcher Matt Harvey) doesn’t pitch now, are so bad that it is embarrassing,” Francesa said. “They are so listless. They are so unwatchable. This is as bad as I have ever seen it. This is Craig Swan bad for these Mets.”
Niese tied a career high by allowing eight runs, and walked more batters than he struck out for the fourth time in eight starts this season.
The Mets went 2-3 on last week’s road trip, losing two of three to the Marlins and splitting their rain-shortened two-game set in Atlanta.
I sincerely hope Davis proves me wrong and suddenly finds his stroke. I hope he can be the .270, 40-homer guy that we all envisioned him being. But I just don’t see that ever coming to fruition. And sooner or later, the Mets will have to make a decision about their first baseman.
Rain has forced the Braves to postpone their game Saturday against the Mets. A makeup date has yet to be determined.

Make it six losses in a row. And more abject futility. It’s enough to drive manager Terry Collins crazy.
“It’s not something I’m worried about,” Wright said before heading to treatment. “I just wouldn’t be any good to anybody today. Hopefully it’s just one day, and then I’ll be back in there.”
Jordany Valdespin hit a grand slam in the 10th inning and the New York Mets rallied past the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-3 Wednesday night to save early sensation Matt Harvey from his first loss of the season.
