On (unofficial) Kevin Burkhardt Night at Citi Field, the Marlins scored twice in the first in odd fashion, one run coming in on a wild pitch that was actually an HBP (long story) and a swinging bunt. They added to their lead with a two-out walk that came around to score in the second. After squandering many chances in the first few innings, the Mets finally got on the board with a two-out, two-run single by Lucas Duda in fifth, but Miami stretched their lead on an RBI double by Christian Yelich in the seventh. New York scraped together a run without benefit of a hit in the eighth but nought else against the Miami bullpen.
Full recap to come.
