Kodai Senga, Tommy Pham lead Mets to series win over Marlins

Kodai Senga put together an impressive Major League debut on the mound, and Tommy Pham had a big day at the plate as the New York Mets (3-1) picked up a 5-1 victory over the Miami Marlins (1-3) on Sunday afternoon at LoanDepot Park to secure a series win.

After a shaky 36-pitch first inning in which he allowed the only run, Senga settled in and struck out eight batters over 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander retired 15 of his final 17 batters while he ran his fastball to 99 mph and showcased his ghost fork pitch.

Pham collected three hits and drove in three runs, including his first home run with the Mets. He has four hits in his last five at-bats after going hitless in the first two games.

Jeff McNeil plated New York’s other run with a soft infield single. Mark Canha also recorded another hit.

Dennis Santana (0.2 IP), John Curtiss (1.0 IP), and Stephen Nogosek (2.0 IP) notched scoreless outings out of the bullpen.

The Mets will begin a three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday afternoon at American Family Field. Carlos Carrasco will make his season debut. The first pitch is slated for 2:10 p.m.
