What You Should Know
Juan Lagares was the man tonight. He turned in the first 4-hit effort of his short major league career and scored 3 runs along the way out of the leadoff spot.
Jon Niese turned in a less than impressive outing but was able to muscle through 6 innings of work despite not having his best stuff. He improves to 8-10 as the offense picked him up. His final line includes 10 hits, 6 earned runs and just 4 strikeouts. Niese’s counterpart Brad Penny lasted just 3 innings.
David Wright and Travis d’Arnaud each contributed three hit games as they both try to end the season strong. Two of Wright’s hits were doubles, his first extra-base hits since Aug. 7th.
Two games down in Miami. 29 runs scored. So far, the Mets and Marlins have scored a combined 29 runs in this series.
