Ozuna goes deep, Conley pitches Marlins past Mets 8-1

Wheeler had a strong first inning, but he struggled from there.

Giancarlo Stanton and leadoff batter J.T. Realmuto each got three hits for Miami.

NY completes the first turn of its rotation Saturday when RHP Robert Gsellman starts against Adam Conley, the third straight left-handed starter to face the Mets.

But the Mets may have the flawless solution to halting the Miami momentum in their fireballing ace Noah Syndergaard - who in 2016 had the highest average pitch velocity of any Major League starting pitcher. "We have that kind of lineup we think that can kind of nick you all over".

Wheeler threw a flawless first inning in his first major league action since September 25, 2014 but was charged with five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four over four innings.

"We don't have to talk about that anymore", Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. Although they missed one another, they also missed the ball, which glanced off Cespedes' glove for a two-base error, with Dietrich stopping at third. "I think it flared up in the last start just 'cause I haven't been really used to this colder environment".

"I fully expected that because I've never seen it", Cecil said before St. Louis played Cincinnati on Friday.

But that will come-this was a rough night weather-wise for any pitcher to command breaking pitches let alone someone who has not appeared in a regular season game since 2014.

"I was just out of my mechanics a little bit", Gsellman said. The Marlins scored 8 runs in Saturday's match and won their game against NYK, the left-hander Adam Conley combined with four relievers on a three-hitter.

"I had a lot of adrenaline in that first inning", Wheeler said.

Working on the first base edge of the pitching rubber on a blustery night with food wrappers and napkins blowing across the field, Wheeler worked a 1-2-3 first and retired Giancarlo Stanton leading off the second on a deep fly to left into a 22 miles per hour wind.

Syndergaard (1-0) allowed two runs - one earned - and five hits in seven innings to improve to 3-0 with a 1.67 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 27 innings against Miami.

"He certainly didn't have his sinker tonight early in the game at all", Collins said. In his first win of the season, Chen allowed just one run in six innings of work. Bruce homered to center in the fifth and Conforto, who was making his first start of the season, followed with a blast to right in the sixth. The Marlins also put two runners in scoring position in the fifth, thanks in part to Volquez's two-strike sacrifice bunt, but didn't plate another. Conley was shaken after that and issued back-to-back walks to Travis d'Arnaud and pinch hitter T.J. "Ces" ought to have five or six home runs by now. New York Mets National League East game, and offers a seven-day free trial. Although Syndergaard did not get the win, he pitched six shutout innings before bowing out with a blister on his right middle finger.

After Edinson Volquez struck out looking, Dee Gordon lined a two-run double down the left-field line, cutting Miami's deficit to 3-2.

On the other side, Mets third baseman Jose Reyes sat at the start in favour of Wilmer Flores. The hard-throwing righty has been putting a cream on it.
