Ronny Mauricio made his Major League debut, and the New York Mets (62-73) held on for a 2-1 victory over the red-hot Seattle Mariners (76-58) in the series opener on Friday night at Citi Field.

Box Score

Mauricio smoked a 117.3 mph double in his first big-league plate appearance, the hardest ball put in play by any Met this season. The 22-year-old also singled, becoming the first Mets player with multiple hits in his MLB debut since Steven Matz on June 28, 2015.

Brandon Nimmo smacked a game-tying solo home run, his 20th of the season. Daniel Vogelbach plated what ended up being the game-winning run with a two-out RBI single in the eighth.

Kodai Senga continued his strong season, tossing seven innings of one-run ball while striking out 12, tying his career high. Phil Bickford and Drew Smith combined to get the final six outs without giving up a run.

The Mets will try to win the series on Saturday at 7:10 p.m. David Peterson will take the ball.
