The Mets dropped the first game of their three game set with the Marlins, 13-1 at Marlins Park in Miami. After a somewhat promising weekend, the Mets looked about as poor as they have all season, and got some truly awful pitching. Dan Straily started for the Marlins, and struck out eight over his five innings of work.
Matt Harvey got hit early and hard, giving up twelve hits, two walks, and seven runs in his four plus innings of work. Harvey’s outing was punctuation by a three-run home run by Giancarlo Stanton, his 55th of the year. The bullpen didn’t help matters much, with Tommy Milone and Hansel Robles giving up two and three runs apiece, respectively, while each recording only one out in the fifth. Jacob Rhame gave up a solo home run to Marcell Ozuna in the seventh, which would be the last bit of Miami scoring.
The sole bit of Mets’ offense came in the top of the fourth inning. Brandon Nimmo drew a walk, and was erased on a Juan Lagares fielder’s choice. Lagares then stole second base, and eventually scored on a Gavin Cecchini single. Despite drawing 12 walks against Marlins pitching, only one run scored all night.
Because he recorded the final nine outs, Vance Worley got a save, despite the Marlins winning by a dozen runs.
