Atlanta, Georgia 2021-08-02 22:55:14 –
Lewis Brinson started at the third cleanup spot in his career, delaying one Grand Slam and defeating host Miami Marlins 6-3 against the New York Mets on Monday night.
Miami relief player Dylan Floro inherited the grand slam two-out situation for the eighth time and escaped the jam with Brandon Drury on the grounder. So the score was kept 5-3 and Floro made nine saves for the third time in six tries this season.
1st place Mets lost 4 games in 2 consecutive games out of the last 5 games. The Marlins have lost four games in a row.
Hess Luzard (3-4), who made his Marlins debut, won. Luzard, who won from Oakland Athletics last week, allowed four hits, three walks and three runs while hitting five in five innings.
The game also marked the Marlins debut of catcher Alex Jackson, which was acquired from the Atlanta Braves last week. He went 0-4.
Tylor Megill (1-1) was the second-best in Mets history after Nolan Ryan, scoring 2.04 ERA in the first seven starts. His ERA rose to 2.68.
Mets center fielder Brandon Nimmo missed the start three times in a row after being scratched from the lineup due to a hamstring injury. He grounded as a seven-time pinch hitter.
New York shortstop Javier Baez seemed to have injured his left ankle in the third inning, but the match remained.
Miami loaded the bass to first base without a singles out by Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Miguel Rojas, with Jesús Aguilar first due to catcher interference with James McCann. Brinson then poked Homer in his opposite field for the second Grand Slam of his career.
Mets put the runner in the corner second without an out when Baez walked and JD Davis hit a single. When Luzard bounced in a wild pitch, Baez scored and Davis scored with Drury’s double.
New York reduced the deficit to 4-3 in the third place with a 399-foot solo blast to the left of Pete Alonso.
In Miami, Brinson chopped up infield hits and scored a double with Isan Diaz, extending the lead to 5-3 in the bottom of the third inning.
Lojas tripled, scoring in 8th place, extending Miami’s lead to 6-3, and the Marlins held up from there.
