Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

The Mets really put themselves in a tough spot. They dropped the first game of the series against the Marlins last night, which lowered their elimination number to 2.

In the next few innings they allowed 2 runs before Matz allowed his first career grand slam in the 6th inning making it 6-0 Marlins. Amed Rosario responded with a grand slam of his own but a defensive miscue by the Mets in the next frame made it 8-4 and the Mets would never recover.
