Game Preview: Mets @ Marlins

The Mets offense from Sunday came back last night as the Amazin’s beat the Marlins 12-1 and look to do it again today as they maintain a hold on the top Wild Card spot. Last night’s offense was punctuated by a positive performance, including a homer, from Jay Bruce, a monster shot from Cespedes, and a bases clearing double for Duda. Both the Giants and the Cardinals won last night so the race remains tight.

Seth Lugo gets the nod for the Amazin’s. He is 4-2 this season over 16 games, 7 starts, over 58.2 innings with a 2.61 ERA. He’s coming off of his first start allowing 3 ER since August 19th.
