Game Recap: Mets routed by Marlins 13-2

By Danny Abriano

With help from a blown call, Zack Wheeler gave up six runs in the second and the Marlins piled on Mets relievers as New York lost by the score of 13-2 at Tradition Field on Monday.

Game Recap:

Zack Wheeler breezed through the first inning but walked a pair, hit a pair, and gave up six runs in the second, with four of those runs coming after a would-be inning-ending play was blown by the first base umpire. Three of the runs scored after Wheeler departed due to reaching his pitch count.

After Wheeler departed, the Marlins continued to tee off on Mets relievers.

The Mets scored their only runs courtesy of a sacrifice fly by Curtis Granderson and an RBI double off the bat of Gavin Cecchini.

Wheeler, who was dealing with a miniscule strike zone, noted after the game that he was intently working on trying to hit the inside corner.


  • Zack Wheeler allowed six runs on two hits, two walks, and two hit batsmen in 1.2 innings of work. He struck out three.
  • Josh Edgin gave up two runs in 0.1 IP after surrendering back-to-back triples to lefty batters and Sean Gilmartin allowed a three-run homer to a right-handed hitter in his inning of work.
