Final Score: Mets 4, Marlins 2 — Wheeler shines, Mets win in tenth inning

New, comments

For the second straight night, the Mets won a game in Miami.

Mike Ehrmann

The Mets beat the Marlins in ten innings this evening in Miami, as hard as that may be to believe. Zack Wheeler made his best start in the big leagues; he allowed just two runs in seven innings with five strikeouts and three walks. That might not sound great, but he threw just 87 pitches and held a no-hitter as late as the seventh inning.

Juan Lagares got the Mets on the board first with a two-run triple in the fourth inning. Wheeler allowed both of his runs after his no-hit bid was broken up in the seventh. The game remained tied until the top of the tenth inning, but John Buck hit a bases-loaded single to score two runs. With a two-run lead, Bobby Parnell allowed just a walk in a scoreless bottom half of the inning.

Game Thread Roll Call

The roll call tool has confirmed what I earlier assumed to be true.

Nice job by MetsFan4Decades; her effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
