 to move up five spots NEW YORK -- Taylor Teagarden had no idea how much of a relief his grand slam was to the scuffling New York Mets until his teammates were congratulating him for the rare hit with the bases loaded. Teagarden homered in his Mets debut, Daniel Murphy had a two-run shot and New York beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 Tuesday night to snap a six-game skid. "If I could help get the monkey off the back, whatever it takes," Teagarden said. Called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday to replace demoted catcher Travis dArnaud, Teagarden connected for his second career slam after Marco Estrada walked the bases loaded in the sixth inning. The 30-year-old Teagarden had struck out in his first two at-bats. He said his teammates let him know just how poorly theyve done with the bases loaded after he returned to the dugout. Playing in front of a season-low Citi Field crowd of 20,206 that booed Ryan Braun in each of his four plate appearances, the Mets improved to 11 for 64 (.172) with the sacks full. "He didnt know you werent supposed to get a hit," manager Terry Collins said with a big grin. Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-0) pitched six effective innings and Murphy homered off Estrada in the third. Before the game, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Collins job is secure after the team returned from a 4-7 road trip a season-worst seven games under .500. Outhit 6-5, the Mets scored their most runs in 16 home games since a 7-6 loss in 10 innings to Miami on April 26. Matsuzaka was hit high on the outside of his right thigh by a line drive in the sixth. Making his third start of the year, the right-hander recovered to throw out Carlos Gomez and finished the inning. Collins said the plan was to send Matsuzaka out for the start of the seventh because he was at 100 pitches. "Pitch-count wise I think I wouldve been able to go into the next inning fine," Matsuzaka said through a translator. "Right now its not too bad, but it should start swelling I think by tomorrow, so well see what happens." Estrada (5-3) has given up a major league-worst 20 homers this season, and both long balls Tuesday followed walks. "I threw a lot of close pitches. Guys just laid off of them," Estrada said. "I dont understand why Im walking so many guys right now. Ive got to figure this out now because its getting out of hand." Murphy connected after Ruben Tejada walked with two outs in the third, the ball just clearing the right field wall for a 2-0 lead. Murphy, who spent his off day Monday participating in a White House summit on working families, has five homers. The Brewers cut the lead in half in the fourth after Khris Davis was hit by a pitch from Matsuzaka. Running on a full-count pitch to Lyle Overbay, Davis scored from first when Overbay hit a sharp grounder inside first base for a run-scoring double. Matsuzaka, however, kept the NL Central leaders in check. He allowed three hits and three walks, striking out five. Estrada walked David Wright and Curtis Granderson with one out in the sixth. After Chris Young struck out, Lucas Duda walked to load the bases. Teagardens drive hit off the top of the wall down the right field line and ricocheted into the seats for his first slam since 2008 with Texas. "I think the at-bats leading up were really good, too," Murphy said. Gomez, traded by the Mets to Minnesota as part of the deal that brought Johan Santana to New York in February 2008, had an RBI double in the eighth off Jeurys Familia. NOTES: Mets RHP Matt Harvey (Tommy John surgery) was scheduled to throw off a slope but that was pushed back. Alderson said Harvey is doing well. The schedule was changed because the teams doctors didnt want Harvey pitching too soon. ... Mets RHP Gonzalez Germen (virus and abscess) was activated from the 15-day DL after the game. LHP Scott Rice was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas. ... OF Eric Young Jr. (hamstring) has started running, but not at full speed. He has also been hitting. ... Brewers RHP Tyler Thornburg (elbow soreness) had an MRI. Manager Ron Roenicke said the team is waiting for a radiologist to examine the results before revealing anything. He did say its not an injury that would require Tommy John surgery.

I was watching the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks Monday night and as the Kings bus rolled back up the freeway with a 2-0 series lead, I want to share a couple of insights from the game. It is obvious to anyone that dials into this series that a clear rivalry exists between these two teams beyond just geographic location. Finishing hard checks and delivering punishing hits, while a given in every playoff series, is often taken to excess when teams really dislike each other. Particular value is placed upon making solid contact and delivering punishing hits whenever possible on key targets; Drew Doughty, Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf certainly make the list, as do others. Jonathan Quick has regained his Conn Smythe Trophy winning form and is likely to become a primary target moving forward. The Ducks need to find a way to solve that obstacle in quick order if they are to jump back into this series! Game 3 becomes pivotal and the referees had better come to work with their radar up and head on a swivel. The goal crease at both ends of the rink needs to be a key focus of their attention. At 3:21 of the second period in Game 2, Quick was assessed a minor penalty for roughing after Corey Perry, and to a lesser degree Jake Muzzin, crashed into the Kings netminder (Click here for the viz).dddddddddddd By all appearance, Perry took full advantage of a retraining hook by Muzzin to make more solid contact with Quick inside the crease. Quick had covered the puck after it was sent his way from above the top of the face-off circle. Muzzin then implemented the hook on Perry above the hash marks in an effort to keep the Ducks player away from his most valuable goalkeeper. Referee Steve Kozari curled below the goal line and assumed a position directly behind the net as Perry and Muzzin were falling toward the goal crease. The referee missed a golden opportunity to send a message and acknowledge both the illegal restraint by Muzzin and the lack of effort by Perry to avoid or minimize contact with the goalkeeper. A much better awareness by the referees is required relative to contact with the goalkeepers at both ends of the ice as this series moves forward. The other thing I want to share with you is a little slice of "nasty" that Ryan Getzlaf extended to Dustin Brown after the two players were getting back to their feet following a collision and fall to the ice well away from the play once Getzlaf dumped the puck into the Kings end zone. The stick blade neck shave (Click here for the viz) that Getzlaf provided Brown free of charge (no penalty) signals not only the dislike players from both teams have for one another but also demonstrates the need for better awareness from the non-action referee (players away from the puck).
