The New York Mets have not won a road series since April. New York’s bats spoke loud on the road against the Miami Marlins as they had 12 hits, including Jeff McNeil’s solo home run off Sandy Alcantara to lead off the game which sparked the Mets to a 6-2 win over Miami.
Miguel Rojas had an RBI single in the second-inning for the Marlins and it tied the game at one.
New York scored two runs in the fourth-inning on a RBI ground out by Adeiny Hechavarria and a RBI single by Michael Conforto.
Jeff McNeil reached base on a fielder’s choice in the sixth-inning and it allowed the New York Mets to score another run.
Robinson Cano hit a solo home run in the seventh-inning off of Elieser Hernandez. It was Cano’s second home run in the series. He only hit four home runs in the first-half of the regular season. Maybe Robinson Cano is finally getting the message across to him.
Pete Alonso had a sacarfice fly in the eighth-inning for New York.
Garrett Cooper hit a solo home run in the ninth-inning for Miami off of Robert Gsellman.
Jacob deGrom (5-7) was the winning pitcher for the Mets. He pitched five innings and gave up six hits and one run. Jacob deGrom walked one batter and struck out three.
The bullpen pitched well except for Jeurys Familia (not a surprise). When the game was 5-1 in the seventh-inning, the bases were loaded with one out and Seth Lugo came into the game. Lugo struck out the next batter and he was able to get another batter to ground out.
The Miami Marlins had 11 hits in the game, but they left a lot of runners on base.
Sandy Alcantara (4-9) was the losing pitcher for Miami. He pitched six innings and gave up nine hits and four runs. Alcantara walked two batters and struck out six.
New York’s next series will be on the road for a two-game set against the Minnesota Twins which begins on Tuesday night.
Miami’s next series will be at home for a two-game set against the San Diego Padres which begins on Tuesday night.
