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.
David Wright has been on quite a tear despite his recent injury and had his best performance of the season in the opener of this three-game home series against Miami.
The Miami Marlins are among the best offensive teams in baseball, and that’s mostly due to their success at home.
Casey McGehee hit a sharp grounder that caromed into right field off the back of reliever Gonzalez Germen’s foot, allowing the winning run to score, and the Miami Marlins rallied late from a three-run deficit Monday night to beat the New York Mets 4-3.
Giancarlo Stanton displays his power so frequently that Miami Marlins manager Mike Redmond doesn’t even bat an eye during flight of one of Stanton’s tape-measure home runs.
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.
Miami Marlins starter Tom Koehler could have plenty of support in what figures to be a sparse Citi Field crowd Sunday as he tries to end his second seven-start winless run of 2013.
David Wright is getting close to coming off the disabled list. The punchless New York Mets sure could use him, if only to make their lineup a little more competitive the rest of the way.
After continuing their woes against the lowly Miami Marlins, the New York Mets are hoping a healthier Jonathon Niese can provide them the spark they need.
