Nathan Eovaldi takes the loss for Miami. He went seven innings, giving up four hits and three runs while striking out one and issuing one walk. Wade LeBlanc and Steve Cishek held the Mets without a hit, but Miami was unable to rally. The Marlins were 0-4 with men in scoring position and left seven on base. Justin Ruggiano led the team at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a pair of singles.
