The New York Mets bounced back from Friday’s series-opening loss to the Miami Marlins with an 11-3 victory on Saturday night at LoanDepot Park.
Carlos Carrasco, who struggled in his last outing, tossed six innings of one-run ball for the Mets.
New York’s offense came alive as they pounded out 11 runs on 16 hits, with eight coming in the fourth inning. Mark Canha led the way with his first career grand slam. Francisco Lindor also went deep, while Jeff McNeil and Eduardo Escobar drove in a pair of runs. Five of the nine players in the starting lineup recorded multi-hit games.
The Mets will try to take two of three from the Marlins on Sunday at 1:40 p.m.
