    Marlins Hoping Urena Can Get By Rough Start Against Mets



    MIAMI, FL -- Miami Marlins starter Jose Urena will look to bounce back from a painful Opening Day start when he opposes the New York Mets on Tuesday night.

    Urena, who started on Opening Day for the second straight season, gave up four earned runs in his 4 2/3 innings against the Colorado Rockies. All four came after the right-hander was hit on the left leg by David Dahl's line drive in the second inning, which caused some tightness and swelling.

    By the next day Urena (0-1, 9.64) was on the mend.

    "It's pretty good. It feels better," Urena told the Miami Herald. "I just did kind of a complete workout like I do my routine all the time after I pitch, so everything was fine. It was a little swelling."

    The Mets will send No. 5 starter Jason Vargas to the mound. Vargas struggled through the first half of last season, going 2-8 with an 8.75 ERA. He rebounded to finish 5-1 with a 2.62 ERA. That and a strong spring have the left-hander in the rotation, at least for now.

    The New York Post reported Sunday that the Mets have been in contact with Scott Boras, the agent for Dallas Keuchel, to gauge interest.

    The 36-year-old Vargas is 2-1 with a 3.18 ERA in three starts against the Marlins.

    Urena, 27, is 5-5 with a 3.38 ERA against the Mets in 14 games, 10 of them starts.

    The Mets (3-1) used a four-run ninth inning to take the series opener 7-3 on Monday. Ahmed Rosario singled home a run off Drew Steckenrider and rookie Pete Alonso followed with a three-run homer, his first in the Majors.

    "It was awesome," Alonso told reporters. "I kind of had a rough go the first four AB's and to step up like that and help my team, that was really fun. That was really cool."

    Through four games, Alonso is 7-for-17 (.412) with three doubles, a homer and six RBIs. Prior to the homer, he had been hitless in four at-bats on the night.

    New York closer Edwin Diaz loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the ninth before striking out three straight batters.

    Juan Lagares homered for New York to tie the game 3-3 in the seventh.

    "We have to come out this series and play like they are the Nationals," Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters before the game. "We can't let up. These are the games, these are the series that mean just as much. You look up at the end of the year and you need to have taken care of business, whether it's the Nationals or the Marlins."

    Starlin Castro (three RBIs) gave the Marlins (2-3) the early lead with a two-run homer in the first inning.

    Miami's Caleb Smith made his first start since shoulder surgery ended his rookie season last June. The 27-year-old left-hander allowed two runs while striking out eight in five innings of a no-decision.

    "I thought Smitty was OK. Honestly, he didn't seem sharp to me," manager Don Mattingly told the Herald. "I think fastball command was not great tonight. But he hung in there. It's not as clean as we've seen him in some outings in spring."

          Mets Score 5 in the 1st, Wilson Escapes Jams to Beat Marlins


          by STEVEN WINE

          MIAMI, FL -- Mets reliever Justin Wilson stood at his locker 30 minutes after Tuesday's game fanning himself with his shirt.

          "Can't stop sweating," he said.

          No wonder. Wilson escaped jams in the eighth and ninth innings to earn his first save since 2017, and New York held on to beat the Miami Marlins 6-5.

          Wilson wasn't the only Met to sweat. The Marlins went 1 for 10 against Jason Vargas (1-0), who was hit hard but allowed only two runs in five innings in his season debut. Miami totaled 16 hits but left 14 runners on base.

          "It got a little hairy," said Mets manager Mickey Callaway, whose team nearly squandered an early five-run lead. "The guys made pitches when they needed to."

          Miami's Jorge Alfaro went 0 for 4 and stranded seven, including the potential tying run at third when he struck out against Wilson to end the eighth inning.

          Wilson hit a batter and allowed a single in the ninth but escaped when Miguel Rojas lined into a game-ending double play , with Lewis Brinson caught too far off second and doing a face plant as he tried to get back to the base.

          "We capitalized on maybe a baserunning error there at the end," Callaway said.

          Wilson said he wasn't thinking about a potential double play when Rojas hit the liner.

          "No, I was thinking, `Bad pitch,'" Wilson said.

          The left-hander worked the final 1 1/3 innings because the Callaway wanted to rest closer Edwin Diaz and reliever Jeurys Familia.

          Amed Rosario hit a two-run double in the Mets' five-run first inning against Jose Urena (0-2). Wilson Ramos and Dominic Smith each had two hits and an RBI for the Mets, who improved to 4-1.

          Brandon Nimmo earned a painful RBI when he was hit on the left knuckle by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh. He was awarded first base when a replay review overturned the original ruling that he had fouled the pitch off.

          Nimmo left the game after the inning. X-rays were negative, but the ball left lace marks on his the back of his hand.

          "It's stiff and tender," he said. "We'll have to see how it feels Wednesday."

          Starlin Castro hit his second homer for Miami. Brian Anderson doubled home a run, and Brinson and Peter O'Brien delivered RBI singles in the seventh.

          "You are disappointed you don't win that game," manager Don Mattingly said. "But on the backside of that, you are extremely proud. That was a battle all night. Guys just kept coming. That is a really good indication of who we are and who we are going to be."

          THE DAY AFTER

          Before the game, Mattingly walked back his criticism of the umpires following Monday's loss . He had suggested the crew was piling on a team that's not expected to contend.

          "It was fairly emotional after the game," Mattingly said. "That plays into your words. I know the umpires are trying to get it right. It's not that there's a conspiracy or anything against the Marlins. That's probably an area I regret, going that far."

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Mets: OF Juan Lagares was back in the lineup after getting hit on the right hand by a pitch Monday. ... INF Todd Frazier (left oblique) and C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) will begin rehabilitation assignments Thursday at Class A St. Lucie. ... RHP Seth Lugo, who gave up three runs in 1 1/3 innings, has been battling an illness the past several days, Callaway said.

          Marlins: Alfaro was hit on the left hand by a pitch but stayed in the game.

          UP NEXT

          RHP Jacob deGrom (1-0, 0.00), who struck out 10 in six scoreless innings against the Nationals on opening day, will start Wednesday against RHP Trevor Richards (0-0, 1.50). deGrom is 4-6 against the Marlins, who have beaten him more than any other team, with a 3.60 ERA.

              Between here & Refugees, I believe you are right about MLB-TV.

              I'm threatening a boycott of all MLB products by local fans if they don't lift the restriction.

              You do remember what they say about the squeaky wheel.

              I had a friend whose son worked in the marketing department for the Angels a few years ago. The Mets played the Angels in an interleague game. His son got me a copy of the Met's Press Guide. It was a soft cover book about 300-400 pages packed with great info on each player, team and individual records. It was awesome. Games Notes x 1,000!
