Wheeler Tosses 1st Shutout; Mets Top Marlins 1-0
MIAMI (AP) — Zack Wheeler tossed his first shutout and made David Wright’s first-inning home run hold up in the New York Mets’ 1-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Thursday night.
Wheeler (3-7) outdueled Marlins starter Andrew Heaney, who made his major league debut, in the longest outing of his career.
New York, which won at St. Louis on Wednesday, has consecutive victories for the first time since a three-game streak from May 31-June 2. The Mets had dropped eight straight on the road before Wednesday.
Wheeler, the No. 6 pick in the 2009 draft, struck out eight. He allowed three hits and one walk as 70 of his 111 pitches went for strikes. He pitched to only one batter over the minimum and was helped by three double plays.
