The Mets lost to the Marlins 3-2 on a walkoff hit in the ninth by J.T. Realmuto. The Mets’ exhausted bullpen was again pressed into service early when Noah Syndergaard left after six innings with another possible blister.
Noah Syndergaard was not his dominant self but he still put together a perfectly acceptable pitching performance through six innings. He only allowed two runs, one of which was unearned.
The bullpen bent but did not break when Rafael Montero loaded the bases, but the Mets got out of it unscathed when Jerry Blevins induced a flyout and Michael Conforto threw out a runner at the plate to end the threat.
The same could not be said for Josh Edgin who pitched a scoreless eighth but gave up the game winning hit in the ninth.
The offensive output came to a halt against the Marlins, even though starter Edinson Volquez was not sharp. They loaded the bases twice against him and came away with only one run on a Michael Conforto sacrifice fly. Lucas Duda added the other run with his fourth home run of the year but that was all they would get.
Full recap to follow.
