The Miami Marlins knocked out prized New York Mets lefty Steven Matz early and went on to a 10-3 win in New York. Miami put the game away early, scoring seven runs in the second inning and one in the third to build an 8-0 lead. Matz was knocked out in the second inning after giving up all seven runs scored in the inning.
Miami Marlins Manager Don Mattingly explained that his team had a good approach against Matz in the second inning.
Giancarlo (John Carlo) Stanton hit a two-run homer off Matz in the second inning and he says getting runners in scoring position was key.
Pitcher Jared Cosart made his first start of the season for the Marlins in last night’s game, but he ran into some control problems and left in the fifth inning. The pitcher allowed four hits, three runs, walked three and struck out three. Four Marlin relievers combined to keep the Mets scoreless the rest of the way.
