The Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets 2-1 in the second game of a four-game series. The Marlins got a strong performance from starting pitcher Jesús Luzardo, who allowed just one run on four hits over five innings. The Mets were led by Pete Alonso, who hit his first home run of the season.
The Marlins scored the game’s first run in the bottom of the first inning on a sacrifice fly by Jesús Sánchez. The Mets tied the game in the top of the third inning on a solo home run by Alonso. The Marlins regained the lead in the bottom of the fifth inning on a solo home run by Jorge Soler. The Marlins held on for the win, thanks to a strong performance from their bullpen.
Luzardo was the story of the game for the Marlins. The 25-year-old left-hander struck out seven batters and walked just one. He allowed just four hits, including the solo home run to Alonso. Luzardo was in complete control for most of the game, and he was the main reason the Marlins were able to win.
The Marlins also got a strong performance from their bullpen. Anthony Bass pitched a scoreless eighth inning, and Dylan Floro pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first save of the season. The Marlins’ bullpen has been a strength in recent years, and they showed that again in the season opener.
The Mets were led by Alonso, who hit his first home run of the season. Alonso is one of the best power hitters in baseball, and he will be a threat to hit home runs all season long. The Mets also got a solid performance from starting pitcher David Peterson, who allowed just two runs on seven hits over six innings.
The Mets were able to tie the game in the third inning, but they were unable to take the lead. The Marlins’ bullpen was too strong, and the Mets were unable to score any runs in the late innings.
The Marlins will look to build on their victory when they take on the Mets again on Saturday. The Mets will look to bounce back and get their second win of the season.
