New York Mets are shutout by the Miami Marlins as Jacob deGrom suffers more hard luck


The New York Mets were defeated by the Miami Marlins on Saturday.  The game took place at Citi Field in Flushing, New York and the final score was 3-0.  Jacob deGrom started for the Mets and he pitched great.  The bullpen didn’t pitch very well and the offense didn’t do much at all. 

deGrom pitched eight innings giving up five hits and a run with no walks and 14 strikeouts.  He took his first loss of the season.  Edwin Diaz pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up three hits and two runs with a walk and Jeurys Familia pitched to one batter and struck him out. 

Trevor Rogers started for the Marlins and he pitched six innings giving up three hits and no runs.  He walked two and struck out ten.  Rogers picked up his first win of the season.  Dylan Floro pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout, Richard Bleier pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout and Yimi Garcia pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout. 

Brandon Nimmo had a hit and drew a walk, Dom Smith had a hit and Jeff McNeil drew a walk.  deGrom had a hit, Nimmo hit a double and the Mets were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base.  Lindor was caught stealing and McCann had a pickoff. 

Starling Marte had two hits, Jesus Aguilar had a hit and an RBI and Jazz Chisholm Jr. had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk.  Miguel Rojas had two hits and an RBI, Chad Wallach had a hit and Adam Duvall had a hit.  Wallach, Duvall and Marte each hit a double.  Chisholm Jr. hit a homerun and the Marlins were 2-6 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.  Marte had a stolen base and Wallach was picked off.  Wallach committed an error. 

In the second Chisholm Jr. hit a solo homerun to give the Marlins a 1-0 lead.  In the ninth Aguilar hit an RBI single and Rojas hit an RBI single giving the Marlins some breathing room with a 3-0 lead and that would be the final score. 

The two teams will play on Sunday afternoon.
