Mets' Kirk Nieuwenhuis goes 4 for 4, drives in four runs Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mets outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis had a big night at the plate in Saturday's 15-2 shellacking of the Dodgers. Nieuwenhuis went 4 for 4 with a double, four RBI and two runs scored. 

This was the second four-hit and four-RBI game of Nieuwenhuis' career. He has been hitting the ball very well since returning to the Mets in early July. In 14 games since rejoining the club, he's batting .375 with five doubles, three homers and 10 RBI.

Mets LF John Mayberry back in lineup, Nieuwenhuis out
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Mets left fielder John Mayberry is in his team's starting lineup for the first time since Monday.

Mayberry is replacing Kirk Nieuwenhuis in left field, while also batting out of the cleanup spot.

Mayberry has struggled mightily as of late, going 0 for 13 in his last seven games.

Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis drives in pair in loss
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Mets outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who continues to get playing time in the absence of left-fielder Michael Cuddyer, got the team on the board in the fourth inning with an two-run double in what would eventually be a 4-3 loss to the Nationals on Wednesday. 

Nieuwenhuis has been one of the Mets' hitters who has struggled with runners in scoring position, but a deep drive to left-center off Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann drove in Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy. 

Even with the hit, Nieuwenhuis' average remains at .169 on the season.

Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) not in lineup
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Injured Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, as the team continues to debate whether to put him on the disabled list. 

Cuddyer has now missed two straight contests after coming out of Sunday's game. He is listed on the lineup as being available, but it seems doubtful the Mets would use him in a pinch-hitting situation. 

Kirk Nieuwenhuis will take Cuddyer's spot in left field and hit sixth, even though he comes into the game with a .163 average.
