Final Score: Marlins 2, Mets 1 - Extra inning, extra frustrating

Luis Rojas blows the game for the Mets with an incredibly dumb pitching decision.

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets and the Marlins went toe to toe tonight in Miami in a pitcher’s duel that was the polar opposite of last night’s sloppy slugfest. However, due to some ill-advised managing by Luis Rojas, the Mets lost the game 2-1 in extra innings.

Sandy Alcantara lived up to his ace status, throwing a nine-inning, one run effort, striking out 14 and walking just one. Rich Hill also threw one of his best starts as a Met, going six innings and just allowing one run.

The game was tied 1-1 from the seventh inning on, until Rojas decided to let Edwin Diaz pitch to the red-hot Bryan De La Cruz, who hit a rocket off the center field wall to score the winning run.

Full recap to follow.
