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. Mariners Sam Tuivailala Jersey . 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.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have spent a good portion of the past two weeks on the road and had mixed results. Theyre headed home for a long break with a nice road win, thanks to their top line. Eric Staal had a goal and two assists, Jeff Skinner scored for the third straight game and the Hurricanes ended a four-game road trip with a 3-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night. "Its a big win for us. You look at the standings, you have to pick up points wherever you can," Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said. "But its the way we won. At the end of a long road trip, we fought and played hard to beat a good hockey team." Playing on the road for the sixth time in seven games since Dec. 3, the Hurricanes withstood an initial flurry and goal by Phoenix to pull out an impressive road victory before getting five days off. Justin Peters was solid and made some big saves down the stretch, stopping 37 shots. Nathan Gerbe tied the game in the second period and Skinner put the Hurricanes ahead early in the third with his eighth goal in six games. Staal put the finishing touches on it with an empty-net goal, giving his line -- he skates with Skinner and Tuomo Ruutu -- 16 goals and 17 assists since Skinners return from injured reserve on Nov. 21 "We are getting chances," Skinner said. "Sometimes thats the way it goes, it goes in, sometimes it doesnt. We got some chances and I was lucky to capitalize on them." Phoenix played a solid game, going up 1-0 in the first period on Paul Bissonnettes first goal in two years. The Coyotes had plenty of chances over the next two periods, but couldnt get anything else past Peters, and lost a key faceoff in the third that led to Skinners goal. "We werent bad tonight, but we could have been way better," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "We could have used a spark from somebody tonight and it didnt come." Coming off a difficult stretch, the Coyotes had earned points in three straight games, including a 6-3 win over the Islanders on Thursday, despite missing several key players. Phoenix was short-handed again against Carolina. Captain Shane DDoan missed his fourth straight game with an illness, defenceman Derek Morris was out for the fourth straight game and left wing Lauri Korpikoski sat out his 11th straight. Mariners Mitch Haniger Jersey. The Coyotes have been getting by with production throughout their lines and the start of Saturdays game was no different. Generating some good early chances, Phoenix scored midway through the first period, when Jeff Halpern kept the puck in Carolinas zone and found Connor Murphy at the right point. He fed a pass to Bissonnette in the crease and the fourth-liner redirected it in for his first goal since Nov. 19, 2011, against Buffalo and first at home since 2010. "Its just good for confidence, just getting chemistry with our line," Bissonnette said. "Weve got guys in and out of the lineup and our line keeps changing, so its nice to play with the same guys and get comfortable." The Hurricanes took over after that. Gerbe tied it at 8:50 of the second period, keeping it on a 2-on-1 and beating Smith to the glove side with a wrister for his seventh of the season. Peters made a huge save late in the second period, stopping Antoine Vermette on a breakaway, and Skinner put the Hurricanes up by scooping up a loose puck off a faceoff and whipping a shot past Smith 3 minutes into the third to score in his third straight game. Peters turned the Coyotes away when they turned up the pressure late, including a spectacular save against Mike Ribeiro. "We talk about timely goals; he made some really timely saves at the right time of the game," Muller said. "He looks real confident." So do the Hurricanes after a big road win.
