The New York Mets picked up their fourth consecutive victory on Fridy night with a 6-4 win over the Miami Marlins at LoanDepot Park.

Chris Bassitt started on for New York and surrendered four runs on six hits over six innings while walking four and striking out two.

Miami opened the scoring in the bottom of the first inning. Miguel Rojas smoked a bases-clearing double to give the Marlins an early 3-0 lead.

The Mets responded in the top of the second. Brandon Nimmo put New York on the board with an RBI double. Then, Starling Marte hammered a two-run triple to tie the game, 3-3. However, the Marlins regained the lead in the bottom of the inning. Joey Wendle grounded into a double play but a run scored to make it 4-3.

New York notted the game again in the top of the fourth as Marte launched his 11th home run of the season over the center-field wall.

Brandon Nimmo gave the Mets a 6-4 lead in the top of the eighth with a two-run homer over the wall in right-center and that ended up being the difference in the game as the bullpen held the lead. That was Nimmo’s 10th long ball of the season.

Adam Ottavino, Trevor Williams, and Edwin Díaz had scoreless outings.

Carlos Carrasco will get the ball on Saturday as the Mets look to secure a series win. The first pitch is slated for 6:10 p.m.
