Zack Wheeler pitched three scoreless innings in his second start of the spring, as the Mets defeated the Braves by the score of 8-2 at Tradition Field on Sunday. Wheeler allowed just three hits, walked one and struck out three in the game and has now tossed six scoreless innings this Spring.
What else happened:
Kyle Farnsworth followed Wheeler and threw two scoreless innings of relief allowing just one hit, while Jose Valverde pitched a perfect sixth inning. Lefthander Josh Edgin allowed a Braves run in the seventh to tie the game at 1-1.
Anthony Seratelli went 1-for-2 and scored a run after stealing second and third base.
Curtis Granderson went 1-for-3 with a run scored and is batting .357 this Spring.
Bobby Parnell made his Grapefruit League debut and allowed a run on one hit while striking out one in the ninth. “I felt like I was in the zone, especially at the end, had my second gear …it went really well”
The Mets remain home and host the Miami Marlins in Port St. Lucie tomorrow at 1:05 PM as Bartolo Colon makes his first start of the Spring for the Mets.
