Final Score: Mets 1, Marlins 0 — Zack Wheeler throws three-hit shutout

Rob Foldy

Zack Wheeler threw the best game of his career tonight, a three-hit shutout. He struck out eight Marlins and David Wright's first inning solo home run was all the run support he needed.

Almost exactly one year after his major league debut, Zack Wheeler threw a masterful three-hit shutout against the Marlins tonight. He struck out eight, walked one, and all three hits he allowed were singles. Amazin'.

It was, unsurprisingly, the best start of Wheeler's young career. His game score was 88, topping the 75 he posted a couple weeks ago against the Cubs. I think he's improving, folks. In addition to the heat Wheeler was throwing all night, he induced three double plays to effectively erase three of the baserunners he allowed.

David Wright hit a solo home run off Marlins starter Andrew Heaney in the first inning, providing Wheeler the only run support he would need. It was an impressive bomb that hit the Marlins' home run sculpture in center field. Heaney impressed in his major league debut, throwing six innings while allowing just the one run on four hits.

A 1-0 Mets win, lasting just two hours, 35 minutes, and featuring a shutout by one of the Mets' rising aces? I'll take it!
