Mets blank Marlins in series finale

The New York Mets secured another series victory on Monday afternoon as they blanked the Miami Marlins, 6-0, at Citi Field. New York won the series by taking three of four.

David Peterson started on the mound for the Mets and had his best outing of the season. The left-hander tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out a season-high seven batters. The bullpen was just as good as Adam Ottavino, Drew Smith, and Yoan López had scoreless outings.

New York jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the first inning on Mark Canha’s bases-loaded walk.

The Mets plated a pair of runs in the fourth to extend the lead to 3-0. Eduardo Escobar lifted a sacrifice fly, and Jeff McNeil scored on a wild pitch.

Pete Alonso launched a sacrifice fly in the fifth to make it 4-0.

Escobar collected two more RBIs in the eighth with a single to cap off the scoring.

Brandon Nimmo had a three-hit game, and Luis Guillorme had two.

The Mets will head to Houston to begin a two-game set with the Astros on Tuesday night. The first pitch is slated for 8:10 p.m.
