Rich Hill close up road greys Miami good

The Mets dropped the second game of their three-game set to the Miami Marlins in 10 innings, 2-1.

Here are the takeaways…

1. Jeurys Familia, Aaron Loup, and Seth Lugo each tossed scoreless a inning in relief – Familia and Loup induced inning-ending 4-4-3 double plays, while Lugo worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam.

Michael Conforto was the inherited runner in the 10th, and a dropped fly ball that looked to be touched in fair territory by Jesus Sanchez was ruled foul. Javier Baez then struck out, but Conforto advanced on a Jeff McNeil groundout. Pinch-hitter Luis Guillorme walked, and Patrick Mazeika came off the bench for James McCann, but he grounded out to end the inning.

The Mets brought in Edwin Diaz to try to send the game to the 11th with Jazz Chisholm as the automatic runner. Chisholm went to third on a sacrifice bunt. Diaz struck out Sanchez, but Bryan De La Cruz, instead of possibly being intentionally walked with two hits already on the night, singled off the center field wall to give the Marlins a 2-1 win.

2. The Marlins created some traffic against Rich Hill in the second, and Alex Jackson singled in the first run of the game. That was all he’d allow, though, in his six innings of work, as he kept Miami off-balance all night. He struck out eight and walked none while allowing just five hits on 83 pitches. It was his second consecutive scoreless outing, and it tied his highest strikeout total as a Met. He has allowed five earned runs in his last four starts, spanning 22.0 innings (2.05 ERA).

3. But the Mets offense couldn’t muster much, as Sandy Alcantara had just 72 pitches through six innings, and one baserunner from innings three through six. But they finally got on the board in the seventh, as Conforto belted a solo home run to tie the game at one. Alcantara settled back down after that, tossing nine innings and striking out 14, and Conforto’s solo blast was the Mets’ only offense of the night.
