The Miami Marlins continue getting good news following a very fun 2014 season.
Jacob deGrom had a tiebreaking single and again shut down the Marlins with seven impressive innings, David Wright doubled twice and drove in two runs, and the New York Mets completed a three-game sweep of Miamiwith a 9-1 victory on Sunday.
Jacob deGrom’s last outing may have brought back memories of the first time he faced the Miami Marlins. The rookie starter earned his first home win his last time on the mound and will try to help the New York Mets complete a three-game sweep of Miami on Sunday at Citi Field.
Chris Young and rookie Eric Campbell delivered big hits off the bench in the late innings to rally the surging New York Mets past the Miami Marlins 5-4 on Saturday.
Left fielder Marcell Ozuna cut down the potential tying run at the plate in the eighth and ninth innings — including Kirk Nieuwenhuis to end the game — to help the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-2 on Friday night.
Much like Miami’s suddenly respectable offense, Tom Koehler has hardly resembled the pitcher who struggled on the mound throughout much of 2013. The Bronx native will try to extend his dominant run at Marlins Park while avenging a recent defeat to the New York Mets.
Dillon Gee pitched three-hit ball over eight innings, Chris Young hit a two-run homer and the New York Mets beat Miami 4-0 Sunday to take two of three from the Marlins.
Chris Young’s first start in the majors in 19 months was likely everything he and Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon could have hoped for.
Ike Davis and Travis d’Arnaud each hit a two-run homer, leading the New York Mets to a 10-2 rout of a Miami Marlins split squad Saturday.
Doug Fister pitched 3 2-3 scoreless innings in only his second spring training start and Danny Espinosa hit two home runs, his second a game-ending shot that lifted the Washington Nationals to a 6-5 win over a Miami Marlins’ split-squad Saturday.
