Javier Baez looks down after hitting home run

Marcus Stromans hot performance wasn’t enough as the Mets collapsed late and fell to the Marlins, 3-2.

Here’s a few takeaways from the game:

1. Javier Baez put the Mets on the board in the top half of the first inning, starting things with a ground rule double before coming home on a wild pitch after back-to-back walks.

2. Baez then extended the Mets’ lead with a solo home run to deep center in the top of the third. It was his third home run of the month and seventh as a Met.

3. Things remained quiet from there until the bottom of the sixth, when the Marlins finally came across home plate for the first time. Stroman hit Eddy Alvarez with a pitch and then gave up a single to Miguel Rojas to put runners on the corners.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. grounded into a fielder’s choice that got Rojas out at second, but Alvarez scored to cut the lead in half at 2-1.

4. Stroman exited after 6.1 innings of work, allowing one earned run on four hits and no walks to go along with seven strikeouts.

With Brad Hand in for Stroman later in the seventh, the Marlins tied the game on an infield single and throwing error by Hand to tie the game at 2-2.

5. The Mets had a huge shot at regaining the lead after Pete Alonso led off the top of the eighth with a triple. But two groundouts, an intentional walk to Michael Conforto and another groundout ended those chances.

The Marlins responded with a Chisholm Jr. solo home run in the next half inning to take their first lead of the game with the Mets down to their last three outs.

The Mets were unable to respond, falling in 3-2 in a game they seemed to have control of.
