The New York Mets (2-1) bounced back with a 6-2 win over the Miami Marlins (1-2) on Saturday evening at LoanDepot Park.
New York fell behind in the second inning but scored five unanswered runs to claim the victory.
Mark Canha and Omar Narváez provided most of the offense. Canha crushed his first home run of the season and smoked an RBI single while finishing a triple shy of the cycle. Narváez drove in two runs with a single and a sacrifice fly.
Pete Alonso and Starling Marte also contributed with RBI doubles. Six of the nine starters had at least a hit as the team recorded 12 hits.
Tylor Megill, who started in place of the injured Justin Verlander, tossed five innings of two-run ball, with the only blemish coming via a home run.
Dennis Santana (1.0 IP), Drew Smith (0.2 IP), Brooks Raley (0.1 IP), Adam Ottavino (1.0 IP), and David Robertson (1.0 IP) combined to get the final 12 outs without giving up a run.
The Mets will try to take three of four from the Marlins on Sunday when they send Kodai Senga to the mound for his Major League debut. The first pitch is slated for 1:40 p.m.
