    Mets-Marlins Try to Dodge Raindrops, Play Two



    -- The New York Mets and Miami Marlins are going to try again Thursday to play a doubleheader. It's hard to imagine the two games going much better for the Mets -- or much worse for the Marlins -- than their single game went Wednesday.

    The Mets and Marlins will hope Mother Nature finally cooperates Thursday, when they are scheduled to close out a four-game series with a single-gate doubleheader at Citi Field beginning at 3:10 p.m.

    Zack Wheeler allowed four hits over eight shutout innings Wednesday night, when the Mets earned a long-delayed 13-0 win. The two teams were slated to play a single-gate doubleheader because of a rainout Monday, but heavy rain pelted Citi Field for several hours Wednesday afternoon and evening and only one game could be played.

    "The challenge is to get back up going again after you've sat for so long," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said afterward. "Guys are coming around asking 'You got any word? You got any word?' You have to sit six hours and all of a sudden, you have to turn it on like a switch. And they did a pretty good job of it tonight."

    Wheeler threw the first pitch at 9:45 p.m., more than 5 1/2 hours later than scheduled. The final out was recorded at 12:15 a.m.

    "It was the same way (for both teams) -- just a long day, a lot of sitting around," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.

    The originally scheduled starters for Thursday night -- Mets left-hander Steven Matz (5-11, 4.17 ERA) and Marlins right-hander Sandy Alcantara (2-0, 0.75) -- will square off in the opener.

    The hurlers who were supposed to start Wednesday's second game -- New York left-hander Jason Vargas (5-9, 6.75) and Miami right-hander Jeff Brigham (0-1, 9.00) -- are slotted for the nightcap.

    With a win Thursday, the Mets (66-78) will assure themselves of no worse than a split for the 10th time in their last 11 series. New York is 7-1-2 in its last 10 series.

    The Marins (57-87) will need to sweep to earn only their fourth series win since the All-Star Break. Miami is 3-8-4 in 15 series in that span.

    Matz didn't factor into the decision in his most recent start Friday, when he gave up two runs over five innings as the Mets fell to the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3. He hasn't won in his last six starts (0-3) dating to July 31 but has allowed only four runs over 19 innings in his last three outings.

    Alcantara earned the win in his second big league start Sept. 5, when he allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings as the Marlins beat the Phillies 2-1. The outing was his first since he recorded the victory in his major league debut June 29, when he gave up one run over five innings as the Marlins cruised by the Mets 8-2.

    Vargas took the loss in his most recent start Sept. 4, when he gave up five runs (four earned) over 3 1/3 innings as the Mets fell to the Dodgers 11-4.

    Brigham will be making his second big league start and appearance. He lost his debut Sept. 2, when he allowed three runs over three innings as Miami fell to the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1.

    Matz is 3-2 with a 3.06 ERA in six career starts against the Marlins, and he gave up just one run in 5 1/3 innings to pick up a win over Miami this season. Vargas is 1-1 with a 3.27 ERA in two career starts against Miami, and he threw five shutout innings against the Marlins to get a win on May 21 this season.

          Mets hit back-to-back homers in 9th, stun Marlins 4-3



          by SCOTT ORGERA

          -- Michael Conforto and Todd Frazier hit back-to-back homers with two outs in the ninth inning, and the New York Mets stunned the Miami Marlins 4-3 on Thursday in the first game of a doubleheader.

          Kyle Barraclough entered with one out in the ninth and retired pinch-hitter Dominic Smith before Conforto lined a 1-0 changeup into the second deck in right to tie the game. Frazier followed by hitting a 1-1 pitch into the seats in left-center field, prompting his teammates to rush from the dugout and mob the veteran third baseman as he crossed home.

          It was Frazier's first walk-off homer since June 17, 2015, for the Cincinnati Reds against the White Sox.

          Barraclough (0-6) blew a save for the seventh time in 17 opportunities.

          Jerry Blevins (3-2) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win.

          Rookie starter Sandy Alcantara befuddled the Mets offense, permitting just two hits, with his only real blemish coming off the bat of the opposing pitcher. Steven Matz hit his first career homer, a two-run shot into the left-field seats in the second inning to tie the game at 2. It was the first homer by a Mets pitcher since Seth Lugo hit one on July 15, 2017.

          Peter O'Brien and Isaac Galloway went deep in the top of the second against Matz. Galloway's third long ball of the year traveled an estimated 408 feet into the second deck in left.

          Playing in front of a sparse crowd with several hundred fans scattered around Citi Field, both clubs then traded zeroes until the seventh.

          Matz retired 13 of 14 before allowing a double to Brian Anderson to start the inning and was lifted after getting Lewis Brinson to fly out. Peter O'Brien lined Drew Smith's first pitch into the right-field corner for a run-scoring single.

          Adam Conley pitched a scoreless eighth, stranding a runner left by Alcantara, and retired Jay Bruce to start the ninth before being lifted for Barraclough.

          Matz allowed three runs on three hits in 6 1/3 innings, walking two and striking out four.

          Alcantara also faced the Mets on June 29 in Miami, earning his first big league win behind five innings of one-run ball.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Marlins: OF Austin Dean was a late scratch because of nausea.

          Mets: 3B David Wright (back/shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 60-day disabled list when the team returns home Sept. 25, and is slated to start at third base on Sept. 29 against Miami in what could be the final game of his major league career. ... C Devin Mesoraco (bulging disk in back) is almost pain-free and could be close to returning, manager Mickey Callaway said.

          UP NEXT

          Marlins: RHP Jeff Brigham (0-1, 9.00 ERA) took the mound in the nightcap, making his second big league appearance.

          Mets: LHP Jason Vargas (5-9, 6.75 ERA) has won three of his last four starts, lasting at least 5 1/3 innings in four or five.
