May 7: Mets (16-17) 0, Marlins (19-15) 1 — Box Score
Miami Marlins starter Tom Koehler pitched eight spectacular innings, allowing just two hits, to give the Fish a chance to sweep the New York Mets. They did just that when Marcell Ozuna delivered a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth.
The story of the game from start to finish was Koehler on the hill. He threw 95 pitches and gave up just a first-inning double to David Wright and a Lucas Duda single in the eighth before exiting after eight frames.
On the other side, starter Zack Wheeler didn’t disappoint either. He also surrendered just two hits in six strong innings of work. He walked five and got a no-decision in the game.
With both starters out of the game in the ninth, Giancarlo Stanton started things off with a single, which was then followed by a Casey McGehee walk. Stanton advanced to third on a Garrett Jones fly out right before Ozuna’s heroics finished things off with a deep fly ball to center field.
Important things to note: Since April 18, the Marlins’ pitching staff has allowed four runs or less in a game in 16 of 18 contests. They are 13-5 as a team in that span … The Fish have gone 8-1 in their last nine games, outscoring opponents 49-26 … With his eight dazzling innings on Wednesday, Koehler dipped his ERA below 2.00 at 1.99. He has gone 15 consecutive innings in his last two starts without allowing a run (only five hits).
