Dillon Gee had an uneven start allowing four earned runs over the course of five-and-two-thirds innings. However, the Mets offense picked up its starting pitcher, and the bullpen held the lead resulting in the Mets fifth straight win.
Gee began the game with a rough first inning. Christian Yelich singled and Giancarlo Stanton followed with an opposite field homerun. He then retired the next nine batters, five via strikeout, before surrendering a solo homerun to Martin Prado in the fourth inning. Gee ran into trouble again in the top of the sixth inning. With two outs recorded, Stanton walked, Prado singled, and Michael Morse walked to load the bases. Rafael Montero entered the game and walked Marcell Ozuna to force in a run. The Marlins would add one more run in the seventh inning.
The Mets received offensive contributions from a handful of players. Wilmer Flores tied the game in the fifth inning with a three-run homerun. Lucas Duda stayed hot and finished the game three-for-four with two doubles. Michael Cuddyer also had a multi-hit game with two singles and two RBI.
