Miami — Adam Ottavino has recently been an ace in the Mets bullpen, but was inevitably stabbed nine times on Sunday.
Nick Fortes started a two-out walk-off home run against Ottavino, losing the Mets to the Marlins at LoanDepot Park 3-2. Mets wasted the opportunity to wipe out the first road series of the season.
Shortly after Luis Guillorme stretched out to steal a single from Jesús Aguilar, Fortes fired an Ottavino slider in the left field to begin the Marlins celebration. Ottavino has only admitted one earned run in the last 19 appearances.
8th time, J.D. Davis reached third base as much as the Mets' Gore Head Run, but James McCann attacked to end the threat.
David Peterson made his second strong start against the Marlins in less than a week at the Mets. A left-handed player awaiting childcare leave for his son's childbirth threw 7 innings, allowed 2 earned runs with 4 hits with 8 strikeouts, and lowered the ERA to 3.10.
It followed a performance against Miami on Monday when Peterson threw 5¹ / ₃ scoreless innings. The best left-handed work of the season was on the streets, pitching to 2.17 ERA with six appearances.
On this day, Peterson retired 12 of the last 13 batters he faced when he finished seven innings for the first time this season. Peterson's previous high was six innings thrown in his victory in San Francisco on May 23. The home run that cleared the mid-level handrail is Nimo's fifth time this season.
Before the innings were completed, Mets made another run. Starling Marte doubled just inside the third base line, and Pete Alonso hit a bloop on first base to win a double, win Marte and extend Alonso's MLB lead to 69 at RBI.
Jon Berti's double first led the Marlins to win their first run on Garrett Cooper's sacrifice fly. Peterson surrendered Solohomer to Miguel Rojas in 3rd place, drawing 2-2.
Peterson was efficient and retired from the side in turn with 4, 6 and 7 innings. For the fifth time, he defeated Berti after surrendering a two-out double to Erik Gonzalez.
