One day after the Mets concluded their series against the Reds with a come from behind victory, the Mets wasted no time getting a good start in their four game series against the Marlins, winning 10-0.
Trevor Williams took the mound, and had his best game of the season, pitching seven scoreless innings. Williams allowed just two hits scattered across those seven innings, while also striking out seven batters.
However, the big story of the night was at the plate for the Mets. After a lackluster performance on Tuesday in Cincinnati from the lineup, as well as for the first eight innings last night, the Mets’ bats have come back to life in a big way.
The first two runs of the game were scored in the bottom of the third inning, the first thanks to an RBI double by Brandon Nimmo. Francisco Lindor then reached first base safely on an infield single, and Nimmo was able to score thanks to a throwing error by Marlins shortstop Miguel Rojas.
In the fourth inning, the Mets broke the game open against Marlins starter Daniel Castano. First, J.D. Davis had a two-run single, and then James McCann was able to break through in a big way, smashing a three-run home run deep over the left field wall, 407 feet to be exact, making it 6-0 Mets.
The icing on the cake came in the fifth inning, thanks to J.D. Davis, who hit a grand slam, putting the Mets up 10-0. From there, no more runs were scored on the night, as Jake Reed threw two scoreless innings in relief of Trevor Williams.
