Wittgren pitched three ideal innings in Thursday's 16-inning loss.
Five hours and 38 minutes into the game, the New York Mets were able to walk away victorious. The challenge will be to show the 2016 comparisons can cease come Sunday though, seeing as how that was the only series the Marlins won against them. "Once you're in it you kind of just roll with it".
D'Arnaud's homer came on the 475th pitch of the night, and the first from Adam Conley (1-1), who had been scheduled to start Friday's game. "The ball got to me pretty quickly". "The first inning I felt really strong. It's a tough position to be in".
The Marlins tied the game in the bottom of the fifth after three straight singles off Syndergaard by Miguel Rojas, Tyler Moore, and Dee Gordon. Syndergaard suffered fingernail injuries to his index and middle fingers while pitching and began bleeding toward the end of his six-inning start. Wittgren pitched three scoreless innings and is the lone pitcher in Miami's bullpen who still has minor league options remaining. J.T. Riddle fouled out to catcher Rene Rivera and Gordon flied out to left. But in the bottom of the ninth Friday night, the Marlins' J.T. Realmuto ripped a run-scoring double to right-centerfield off lefthander Josh Edgin, sending the Mets to a 3-2 loss.
Said Collins: "That's just what we're facing when you have a night like last night". "When I started to realize there weren't a whole lot of pitchers left, I could have used a day off, but I felt good and chose to tell them I could do this", he said.
Conforto led the charge as the Mets capped a three-game sweep of Philadelphia on Wednesday, finishing 2-for-4 with three runs scored in just his second start of the season. Christian Yelich put the Marlins on the board with a sacrifice fly, but that was all Syndergaard would allow in that inning. Chris Young lifted a fly ball to left that looked more than deep enough to bring the tying run home.
CHICAGO - Brett Anderson beat his former team with five solid innings, center fielder Albert Almora Jr. made two outstanding catches against the ivy and Chicago beat Los Angeles.
The Marlins challenged the ruling, but it was upheld after review.
"I was confused", he said. "I felt the tag right here on my back".
Jose Reyes went from first to third on a sacrifice bunt in the sixth, but Marlins reliever Jarlin Garcia - making his major league debut - escaped the jam to keep the score at 2-all.
Looking to rediscover the form that produced three double-digit victory seasons in four years with Baltimore before going 5-5 with Miami last season, Chen threw 63 of his 86 pitches for strikes against NY.
After falling victim to the rare walk-off outfield assist, the Mets waited. and waited. and waited, until finally, they got their revenge.
