    Mets Face Marlins as Cloud Hangs Over Manager Callaway



    MIAMI, FL -- The Miami Marlins will be looking for their first sweep of the season and their first three-game winning streak of the year when they play host to the New York Mets on Sunday.

    New York, meanwhile, may be playing for manager Mickey Callaway's job.

    Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, who is new to the team this year, inherited Callaway as his manager and speculation is rampant that Van Wagenen could replace him if the team's four-game skid were to continue.

    Van Wagenen came to town confidently stating that the Mets were the team to beat in the National League East, but offseason deals for Robinson Cano, Jeurys Familia, Jed Lowrie, Justin Wilson and Keon Broxton have failed to produce. His failure to bring in Gio Gonzalez and his decision to return Travis d'Arnaud to the roster, only to cut him a month later, look dubious.

    Yet, Callaway is the one on the hot seat, and Van Wagenen did little to release the pressure when asked about his manager this weekend.

    "Mickey has been accountable for what we all want," the GM said. "We have played well at times. I think Mickey knows what's in front of us."

    What's in front of the Mets on Sunday is that they will be desperate for a strong performance from veteran right-hander Noah Syndergaard (3-3, 4.74), who has great stuff but is having his most inconsistent season and has produced the highest ERA of his career.

    Syndergaard threw a complete-game shutout to beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 on May 2. He also beat the Washington Nationals in his most recent start, earning a 6-2 win on May 14 by allowing just two runs in eight innings.

    However, Syndergaard has not thrown consecutive quality starts this season. In fact, he has allowed at least four earned runs in six of his nine starts.

    This will be his first matchup against Miami this year, but in eight career starts against the Marlins, he is 6-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings.

    Syndergaard, who has reached 100 mph on the radar gun, will match up on Sunday against Marlins right-hander Sandy Alcantara, who throws just as hard.

    Alcantara (1-4, 5.11 ERA) will be making his 15th career major-league start. He has pitched reasonably well in four career starts against the Mets - 1-2, 2.92 ERA. This year, though, he is 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA against the Mets. He faced New York last Saturday, allowing four runs in 5 2/3 innings.

    One concern for Alcantara is that he seems to be regressing. In six starts last year, he went 2-3 with a 3.44 ERA. This year, in his three most recent starts, he has a 6.19 ERA.

    Alcantara will likely be without his starting catcher, Jorge Alfaro, who had three RBIs, two hits and one homer in Friday's 8-6 win over the Mets but left Saturday's game due to a strained left calf. The Marlins would miss his power bat and strong arm if he is put on the injured list.

    Even so, Friday's win "relaxed" the Marlins, according to Jon Berti, who homered and then walked and scored Miami's second run in Saturday's 2-0 win.

    "It helped loosen us up," Berti said on Saturday. "Guys were pressing, myself included. With a win like that, it eased tensions."

          Alcantara Pitches 2-hitter, Miami Beats Reeling Mets 3-0


          by STEVEN WINE

          MIAMI, FL -- The New York Mets aren't hitting, and another lapse by slugger Robinson Cano raised questions about how hard they're trying.

          None of which helps the shaky job security of manager Mickey Callaway.

          Sandy Alcantara needed just 89 pitches to throw a two-hitter in a duel with Noah Syndergaard, and the lowly Miami Marlins beat the reeling Mets 3-0 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.

          A day after being shut out on one hit, the Mets dropped their fifth in row. And for the second time in three games, Cano failed to run hard after hitting a ground ball.

          The latest unsightly defeat against a team with the worst record in the majors is sure to intensify speculation about Callaway's status as the team returns to New York. The Mets (20-25) have their longest losing streak of the year and are a season-worst five games under .500.

          "I understand that everybody is disappointed - the fans, the ownership, myself, the team - because this is not who we are," Callaway said.

          Callaway again found himself defending Cano, who failed to run when he hit a grounder that bounced off the dirt behind home plate and rolled a few feet fair. Cano stood at the plate questioning the call while the Marlins completed a 2-6-3 double play.

          "I saw the ball hit and it didn't even hit the plate, it hit behind the plate," Cano said. "I thought it was a foul ball."

          On Friday, Cano jogged to first when he grounded into an inning-ending 1-6-3 double play, and later told Callaway he thought there were two out.

          "Things are piling up on Robbie right now," Callaway said when asked about Cano's latest bad look. "Come one, let's face it - the ball lands foul and spins into fair territory. He saw it hit foul, and by the time he looked back up the ball had spun into fair territory and the play was over. Stuff happens like that when things are going bad."

          Syndergaard (3-4) allowed two runs in seven innings, and afterward defended Callaway, who is in his second year as manager.

          "I respect the hell out of Mickey," Syndergaard said. "It's kind of bull what's going on right now with the speculation that there could be a change, because we're still early in the season and just one small step from putting this all together. It's certainly not on him."

          Part of the Mets' problem was Alcantara (2-4), who struck out eight, walked one and retired the last six batters for the Marlins' first complete game shutout since Edinson Volquez tossed a no-hitter against Arizona in June 2017. It was the first complete game for Alcantara, a 23-year-old righty acquired from St. Louis in a trade for Marcell Ozuna before last season.

          "I felt great," Alcantara said. "I felt like a superstar about my complete game."

          He also had a bunt single to set up the first run, and made a nifty behind-the-back grab of J.D. Davis' one-hopper in the first inning.

          The Marlins (13-31), who came into the series with a seven-game losing streak, have their first three-game winning streak of the season. Their bandwagon is growing - the crowd of 15,983 was the biggest at Marlins Park since opening day.

          Miami became the first team to hold its opponent to three hits or less in consecutive shutouts since Philadelphia limited Atlanta to three hits on Sept. 1-2, 2014.

          The Marlins won with six hits. Curtis Granderson hit his fifth homer for their final run in the eighth.

          MATCHUP

          Alcantara has made five of his 15 career starts against the Mets, and has an ERA of 2.14 with a 2-2 record.

          PACE OF PLAY

          The game took 1:59 to play. The first 19 batters went down in order, and the first three innings took only 31 minutes.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Mets: LHP Luis Avilan (left elbow) is expected to begin playing catch soon.

          Marlins: C Jorge Alfaro (left calf strain) might return to the lineup Tuesday. ... INF-OF Jon Berti (strained left oblique) was scratched from the lineup and is day to day.

          UP NEXT

          Mets: They begin a four-game series against Washington at home Monday with the starting pitcher to be announced.

          Marlins: Following an off day, LHP Caleb Smith (3-1, 2.25) is scheduled to start Tuesday when Miami begins a seven-game trip in Detroit. Opponents are batting .180 against him, which ranks second among National League starters.
