Morning Briefing: Salvage a split?

AM ET
NEW YORK

FIRST PITCH: The Mets look to salvage a split of a four-game series against the wild card-leading Giants in Monday’s matinee finale at Citi Field.

Dillon Gee (4-4, 3.77 ERA) opposes right-hander Tim Hudson (8-8, 2.71) in the 12:10 p.m. game.

Gee has surrendered 15 runs in 16 2/3 innings in three second-half starts.

Hudson is the active wins leader against the Mets with 17 career victories.

Monday’s news reports:

• In his first start since the non-waiver trade deadline passed, Bartolo Colon surrendered six runs in 4 2/3 innings and served up homers to Hunter Pence and Brandon Belt as the Giants routed the Mets, 9-0, Sunday at Citi Field. Madison Bumgarner became the second Giants pitcher in three days to toss a complete-game two-hitter, joining Ryan Vogelsong (on Friday).

The Mets now trail the NL East-leading Nationals by eight games, and are 6.5 games out of a wild-card spot.

The last time two pitchers in the same series tossed complete-game two-hitters or better against the Mets came in 1965, when the Dodgers’ Sandy Koufax and Claude Osteen accomplished it, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Colon was bidding to become the third pitcher to notch his 200th win in a Mets uniform. He also was bidding to become the third active pitcher and the third Dominican-born pitcher to reach that plateau.

Orel Hershiser and Pedro Martinez won No. 200 as a Met. Hudson (213 career wins) and CC Sabathia (208) are the lone active pitchers to have reached that total. Juan Marichal (243) and Martinez (219) are the lone Dominican-born pitchers to have reached 200 wins.

Colon’s next crack will be Friday in Philadelphia. He has a 1.45 ERA in his 10 wins this season. He has a 6.91 ERA in his other 12 starts.

Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy and Travis d'Arnaud all were out of Sunday’s starting lineup.

Read game recaps in the San Francisco Chronicle, Post, Daily News, Newsday, Times, Star Ledger, Record and at MLB.com.

• The slumping David Wright insists he feels fine, despite dealing with a balky left shoulder this summer. Wright had one of the Mets’ two hits on Sunday, but is batting .197 in his past 18 games. Read more in the Post, Daily News, Star Ledger and Newsday.

Matt Harvey's first serious mound session since undergoing Tommy John surgery is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Read more in the Post.

• Read more on Colon in the Daily News.

• Anthony McCarron in the Daily News delves into Terry Collins sitting Duda on Sunday. Collins cited the southpaw Bumgarner’s cross-body delivery as being difficult for a lefty batter, although Bumgarner entered the start with lefties hitting .256 and righties hitting .259 against him this season.

• Cory Mazzoni allowed one run in six innings and Matt Reynolds went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer against ex-Met Philip Humber as Las Vegas beat Sacramento, 7-2, on Sunday. Reynolds drove in three runs. Steven Matz limited Bowie to one unearned run in six innings to shave his Double-A ERA to 2.85, but the BaySox rallied against Binghamton’s bullpen for an 8-2 win. Luis Cessa allowed five runs in six innings and Clearwater beat St. Lucie, 5-1.

John Gant took a perfect-game bid two outs into the seventh inning and ultimately stranded the bases loaded that inning and Champ Stuart delivered an RBI single in the eighth as Savannah edged Hickory, 1-0. Starter Gaby Almonte allowed four runs in 3 2/3 innings and dropped to 0-5 as Pulaski blanked Kingsport, 4-0. Michael Conforto’s solo homer accounted for the lone run in Brooklyn’s 5-1 loss to Connecticut.

BIRTHDAYS: '69 Met Cleon Jones turns 72. ... Dallas Green is 80. ... Original Met Joe Pignatano is 85.
