The New York Mets are shutout in a rough day

The New York Mets were defeated by the Miami Marlins on Sunday afternoon.  The game took place at Citi Field in Flushing, New York and the final score was 7-0.  The story though was off the field as Matt Harvey who was supposed to make the start was suspended by the team for three games.  The reason was unclear.  Adam Wilk made the start for the Mets and he didn’t pitch very well but the bullpen was good.  The Mets managed one hit on offense. 

Wilk lost his first game of the season pitching 3 2/3 innings and giving up eight hits and six runs with five of them being earned.  He walked one and struck out two.  Paul Sewald pitched 3 1/3 innings giving up four hits and a run with six strikeouts, Josh Edgin pitched an inning giving up a hit and Fernando Salas pitched to two batters and retired them both.  Josh Smoker pitched 1/3 of an inning and walked two. 

Jose Urena pitched six innings giving up one hit and no runs with a walk and two strikeouts.  David Phelps pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout, Nick Wittgren pitched a perfect inning with two strikeouts and A.J. Ramos pitched an inning with a walk and a strikeout. 

T.J. Rivera drew a walk, Neil Walker drew a walk and Rene Rivera had a hit.  The Mets were 0-2 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.  Granderson committed an error. 

Christian Yelich had a hit and drew a walk, Marcell Ozuna had two hits and Giancarlo Stanton had two hits and four RBI.  Martin Prado had a hit, Justin Bour drew a walk and Derek Dietrich had three hits, an RBI and drew a walk.  A.J. Ellis had a hit, Adeiny Hechavarria had two hits and an RBI and Ichiro Suzuki had a hit.  Ozuna, Yelich, Dietrich and Suzuki each hit a double.  Stanton hit two homeruns and Hechavarria hit a homerun.  The Marlins were 2-8 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base.  Gordon committed an error. 

In the first Stanton hit a three-run homerun to give the Marlins a 3-0 lead.  In the third Stanton hit a solo homerun to push the lead to 4-0.  In the fourth Hechavarria hit a solo homerun to extend the lead to 5-0.  A wild pitch pushed the lead to 6-0 and in the seventh Dietrich hit an RBI double to make it 7-0 which was the final score.
