The Mets continued to find themselves in the offensive doldrums as they fell to the Marlins 2-1 on Tuesday night. That drops the Mets' record to 2-5 on the year and ensures that they will never ever make the playoffs again. Ever.
The Mets will have a chance to avoid a sweep against the Marlins as Logan Verrett fills in for Jacob deGrom in the final game of the series this afternoon. The Mets' bright spot last night was Noah Syndergaard's continued brilliance, which was on full display as he struck out 12 batters.
The Mets' only run came off a first inning RBI single from Lucas Duda that you can check out here.
Travis d'Arnaud made a beautiful play in the sixth to throw out Christian Yelich at third base.
One big moment in the game came when Ichiro Suzuki passed Marlins hitting coach Barry Bonds on the all-time hits list in the seventh with his 2,936th hit. You can check it out here.
The Marlins eventually took the lead, however, and the Mets were able to get nothing going against the mighty David Phelps.
After the game, Terry Collins talked about Syndergaard's continued good run of pitching and the lack of offense from the Mets.
