Final Score: Marlins 8, Mets 1-Cold bats and a shaky bullpen

New, comments

The offense continues to struggle at the start of the season.

MLB: Miami Marlins at New York Mets Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets dropped the second game to the Marlins by a score of 8-1. Robert Gsellman made his first start of the season and struggled, but bore down when he needed to. He made it through five innings and gave up three runs, but he struck out seven Marlin batters. He also had some tough luck when Curtis Granderson misplayed a ball hit right at him by J.T. Realmuto which became a triple, and eventually a run.

It was another tough night for the bullpen. Josh Smoker had a nice bounce back appearance but the rest of the bullpen did not fare as well. Hansel Robles, Paul Sewald, and Rafael Montero were all erratic and gave up runs.

The offense was stagnant against starter Adam Conley until the fifth when Lucas Duda hit a solo shot to left to break up the no-hitter. Yoenis Cespedes gave a ball a ride in the eighth but Christian Yellich made a leaping grab to end any semblance of offense.

Full recap to follow.
