NEW YORK -- Jonathon Niese pitched a shutout. He lined a game-breaking double. He worked out a key walk. And he ran through a stop sign to score the first run. Now that truly is a complete game. Niese threw a three-hitter and drove in three runs as the New York Mets put aside a devastating injury and a surprising trade, beating the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 Tuesday night to end a five-game losing streak. "It was an overall great win for us," Niese said. Thanks to a great overall effort by him. "One-man show by Niese," Phillies interim manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Pretty stress-free." Niese struck out five and walked one in his second career shutout in 112 major league starts. The Mets took advantage of several poor throws to win several hours after trading veterans Marlon Byrd and John Buck to Pittsburgh. It was Byrd T-shirt giveaway night at Citi Field. Minus the teams RBIs leader, Niese (6-6) handled matters at the plate and on the mound. Good timing, considering ace Matt Harvey was diagnosed this week with a partial tear in his elbow. "They want to pick each other up," Mets manager Terry Collins said. Niese retired 17 straight batters and scored the first run by running through third base coach Tim Teufels late stop sign. "I had my mind made up," Niese said. Niese improved to 3-0 in four starts since coming off the disabled list because of a partially torn rotator cuff. "Its kind of rewarding to know Im 100 per cent now," he said. After Michael Young led off the second inning with a single, the left-hander didnt permit another runner until Young doubled to begin the eighth. Nieses other shutout came in 2010. He popped his left hand into his mitt after Chase Utley flied out to finish this one on his 113th pitch. Niese pitched his third career complete game. He also became the first Mets pitcher to drive in at least three runs since Al Leiter in 1999. Asked whether he was more proud of pitching or hitting, Niese said: "Both." The Phillies had won five of their last six under Sandberg, yet looked punchless against Niese. Then again, neither team had a player in the starting lineup batting above .276. Pitching a day after his 29th birthday, Kyle Kendrick (10-11) went six innings and allowed five runs, only one of them earned. He made a wild pickoff toss to second base, too. Kendrick had won all three of his starts against the Mets this year. But he hasnt done well lately overall, going 1-5 in his last seven starts. Niese toted a .162 career average to the batters box in the third and earned a one-out walk on a 3-2 pitch. He moved up on a bunt by Eric Young Jr. and then took off on Daniel Murphys single, easily beating an off-target throw home by right fielder John Mayberry Jr. A wild throw by first baseman Kevin Frandsen helped the Mets load the bases in a four-run sixth. Travis dArnaud lofted a fly to medium-shallow centre field, and Andrew Brown scored without a problem on Roger Bernadinas weak throw home. Niese came up with two outs after an intentional walk and lined a bases-loaded double to the gap in left-centre field. The three RBIs on that hit matched his combined total from the past three years. "He just got lucky," Kendrick said. NOTES: Phillies OF Domonic Brown was out with a sore right heel. He hasnt started since being pulled from Saturdays game. Sandberg said Brown "still feels it" but "seems to be getting better." ... The Mets said RHP Jeremy Hefner will soon have Tommy John surgery. He got a second opinion from noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews before making the decision. ... Phillies LHP Cole Hamels (5-13, 3.62) starts Wednesday night vs. Mets RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka, hit hard by Detroit on Friday in his season debut. ... Kendrick made his 150th career start and is 64-53. He has not pitched past the sixth inning in his last eight starts. ... The Phillies were shut out for the 13th time; only Miami with 15 has been blanked more. Joe Klecko Jersey .

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Matt Kuchar saw his well-struck 5-iron on the 18th hole at the RBC Heritage come up way short of the target and settle in a front bunker. "Well," he thought as he walked toward the shot, "there are a lot worse places to be." For Kuchar, there was no better place -- and no better shot in the tournament. He followed with a stunning hole-out on Harbour Town Golf Links closing, lighthouse hole, to overcome a four-shot deficit for a one-stroke victory and end nearly a month of Sundays where he came close to a title only to lose at the end. Kuchar shot a 64 to finish at 11-under 273, one stroke ahead of Luke Donald, who had his third second place and fifth top-three finish here in the past six years. Donalds latest chance ended Kuchars winning shot. He hit it solid, felt it was a good line and watched it rattle home. "I heard the crowd go crazy," Kuchar said. "Then I went crazy." Kuchar punched the air to celebrate, grabbed his cap and swung it around to the cheers of the crowd. It was Kuchars seventh career PGA Tour victory. He earned $1.044 million and his first trophy since the Memorial last June. It also followed a stretch of golf were Kuchar was in contention nearly every week. He was two shots behind winner Steven Bowditch at the Texas Open on March 30, then lost a playoff at the Houston Open a week later on Matt Jones 42-yard chip in. Kuchar was in the mix at Augusta National a week ago, having a share of the lead on Sunday before a four-putt double bogey at the fourth hole dropped him from contention. Kuchar, at No. 6 in the world the highest-ranked golfer here, couldve taken a break like other top competitors, but hoped the momentum would carry into Harbour Town. "Its awfully sweet to have another chance," Kuchar said. Kuchar made up the four shots on Donald with seven birdies in his first 10 holes. Then nearly gave away another tournament when he three-putted from less than eight feet away at the par-3 17th, a bogey that dropped him into a tie for the top spot -- and set up the dramatic 72nd hole. "I was in a little bit of shock," Kuchar said. "But I think I did a good job of shaking things off.dddddddddddd" Donald had two holes to catch Kuchar but couldnt do it. He missed a 28-foot birdie putt at the 17th hole, then saw his try at a chip-in birdie slide past the cup. "Finishing second isnt what I was hoping for," he said. "Disappointed, obviously, not to have won. Usually a solid 69 on a windy day with a two-shot lead is enough to get it done on Sundays. Its tough to win out here and hats off to Matt for a superb round." Donald was at 10-under 274 after his 69. Ben Martin, who turned pro in 2010, shot 67 to finish tied for third at 9 under with John Huh, who shot 68. Sunday finally brought the sunshine the tournament had lacked all week. Players got the bonus of easy, softened greens from three days of moisture. The birdies were flying from the start, and Kuchar took full advantage. He birdied the first and second holes, then added a third from 20 feet or so at No. 4. "When I made that putt, I knew it was going to be a really good day," he said. That Donald was in the chase again here was no surprise. The steady Englishman, once No. 1 in the world, says Harbour Towns tight fairways and small greens are a perfect layout for a player such as him who isnt the longest hitter on tour. Donald said a gust of wind in his swing led to him driving the ball way left out of bounds on the sixth hole for a double bogey. He climbed back into the hunt with birdies on the seventh and ninth, but hooked his drive into the water left on No. 10 for a bogey. "It was just a poor swing," he said. "I flipped it." Donald kept charging, though, and drew within a stroke of Kuchars lead with consecutive birdies on the 11th and 12th holes. He could get no closer, finishing his round with six pars. Martin, who had missed seven cuts in his past eight tournaments, reached 10 under with back-to-back birdies on the 13th and 14th holes. Martins run ended when he couldnt squeeze through some pine trees after driving into the rough at the par-5 15th. His ball struck a tree and scooted into more trouble across the fairway. He took bogey to drop two shots off the lead. ' ' '
