Right-hander Jordan Yamamoto ended his season on a good note Thursday night at Citi Field. He pitched six shutout innings and struck out a career-high 10 batters as the Marlins edged the Mets, 4-2, thanks to a go-ahead home run by Curtis Granderson.
This season has been inconsistent for Yamamoto, and it didn’t help that he missed a good portion of September because of a forearm strain.
However, against the Mets, Yamamoto showed that he has fully recovered from injury. At one point, he retired 17 out of 19 hitters and struck out the side in the fifth inning.
There was no score when Yamamoto left the game and he ended up with a no-decision. Reliever Jeff Brigham earned the victory after Tyler Heineman tied the game at 2 with a two-run homer and Granderson hit a solo homer to give Miami the lead — all against Zack Wheeler in the eighth inning.
