    Mets Aim for Series Win Over Marlins



    The weekend began with first-year general manager Brodie Van Wagenen admitting this season is a disappointment and defending the trade that brought Robinson Cano to the New York Mets for two highly regarded prospects.

    For one night, the Mets did not experience much disappointment thanks to an impressive swing by Cano, who hit a tie breaking two-run homer in the eighth inning of Saturday's 4-2 win.

    On Sunday, the Mets can get their first road series win in more than three months and second overall when they conclude a three-game set with the Miami Marlins.

    New York is 18-32 on the road this season and 11-31 in its last 42 road games since winning seven of its first eight road contests. The Mets are in a position to get their first road series win since sweeping Miami April 1-3 as part of their 9-4 start to the season.

    The Mets are 32-47 overall since then, however, and own the second-worst record in the National League after Van Wagenen declared "come get us" to the rest of the NL East in January shortly after obtaining Cano from the Mariners along with Edwin Diaz for Justin Dunn and Jarred Kelenic, who participated in last week's Future's Game.

    Cano enters Sunday with five homers after hitting his first since June 17. He also drove in two runs for the first time since April 15 and only the third time overall.

    "I don't know if you noticed I've been hit twice, three times on my hand," Cano said. "That's not an excuse. I'm the kind of guy even if it bothers me, I would never say anything. I would like to be able to go out and contribute any way or anyhow."

    After one of his biggest hits of a disappointing season, Cano is batting .240 with five homers and 20 RBIs.

    "You don't put up a Hall of Fame career without having pride in yourself and wanting to prove to people that you're one of the best," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "There's no doubt. He has that."

    The Mets also got a strong outing from Noah Syndergaard and will hope Jacob deGrom (4-7, 3.27) can do the same. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner has produced a 2.68 ERA in his last seven starts with 61 strikeouts and seven walks but the Mets are 1-6 in those games.

    He last pitched July 5 at home against Philadelphia when he allowed two runs, three hits and struck out 10 in seven innings of a no-decision in a 7-2 loss.

    The right-hander is 6-7 with a 3.55 ERA in 19 career starts against Miami, which tagged him for seven runs on nine hits May 17.

    The Marlins swept the Mets at home May 17-19 and won the series opener 8-4 Friday. They scored both runs in the fourth inning Saturday, struck out 12 times and lost for the 10th time in their last 14 games.

    Sandy Alcantara (4-8, 3.82) gets the nod for Miami in his first start since appearing in the All-Star Game. Alcantara last started July 3 in Washington, when he allowed two runs on four hits in 5 2/3 innings of a 3-1 loss while opposing Stephen Strasburg.

    "I think I had a pretty good game," Alcantara told reporters after allowing a two-run homer to Brian Dozier. "I just missed a spot with my pitch and they hit a homer."

    Alcantara is 2-2 with a 2.14 ERA in five career starts against the Mets. On May 19, he pitched a two-hitter against New York in a game that lasted one hour, 59 minutes.

          Cano homers in 2nd straight game, Mets top Marlins 6-2


          by CHRISTOPHER STOCK

          MIAMI, FL -- Jeff McNeil joked with manager Mickey Callaway moments before leading off the game about hitting a home run on the first pitch.

          Callaway requested McNeil have an 11-pitch at-bat ending with a homer, but McNeil had other plans.

          "I just laughed and I said I'll do it on the first pitch," McNeil said.

          McNeil's home run started the momentum for the Mets and Robinson Cano continued it as he homered for the second consecutive game to help lead New York to a 6-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

          "(Cano) is obviously barrelling the ball up and the last couple days he's actually getting it in the air and having some good results as far as extra-base hits and homers," Callaway said.

          Cano finished 4 for 5 for his first four-hit game since May 7 at San Diego and came a day after he hit a tie breaking go-ahead homer in the eighth in the Mets' victory.

          "It's good to see," Callaway said.

          Jacob deGrom (5-7) pitched five innings and allowed six hits and one run for the Mets. He struck out six and walked three.

          "Today was a battle," deGrom said. "First inning felt good. Second inning on felt like I was flying open a little bit and having a hard time commanding the baseball."

          McNeil knocked in a pair of runs while Pete Alonso, Michael Conforto, and Adeiny Hechavarria each drove in one.

          It was the first road series win for the Mets since sweeping the Marlins on April 1-3.

          "It feels like more than a few months," Callaway said. "It's a good way to start the second half. We've got to keep it rolling."

          Miami's Sandy Alcantara (4-9) tossed six innings, allowing nine hits and four runs.

          Jeurys Familia loaded the bases in the seventh with one out and a 5-1 lead. Seth Lugo entered and got a called strike three on Brian Anderson and Starlin Castro bounced out to end the threat.

          "We had the bases loaded with Familia right there, but we had a tough day at the plate," Miguel Rojas said.

          Alonso hit a sacrifice fly in the eighth to cap the scoring for the Mets.

          Miami's Garrett Cooper hit his 10th home run of the season in the ninth.

          McNeil led off the game with a home run, his eighth, on the first pitch thrown by Alcantara. It was McNeil's second leadoff homer of the season. He also knocked in a run in the sixth on a fielder's choice. He is hitting .402 (35 for 87) with five home runs and 18 RBIs in his past 21 games.

          Rojas, who went 3 for 5, tied the game at 1 with an RBI single in the second.

          The Mets scored twice in the fourth on a ground out by Hechavarria and a base hit by Conforto.

          "It could have gotten really ugly right there, but (Alcantara) was able to limit the damage," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.

          McNeil's groundout extended the lead to 4-1.

          "I think I was throwing a pretty good game," Alcantara said. "They got a lot of soft contact off of me for runs, but I never give up. I want to continue attacking the hitters"

          Cano's sixth home run of the season went over the right-field wall in the seventh for a 5-1 lead.

          It was the first time Cano has homered in consecutive games since Sept. 2-3, 2017, while with Seattle.

          ROSARIO BENCHED

          Mets shortstop Amed Rosario did not start for what he believes was for not running out a fly ball that dropped during Saturday's game.

          "I think it was because of the consequences of me not running out that flyball," Rosario said through a translator.

          Callaway said: "I wouldn't call it disciplinary."

          The Mets were leading 4-2 in the eighth when Rosario hit a fly ball to right-center that was misplayed by the Marlins' outfielders, dropping in for a single.

          "He knows that he needs to be on second in that situation and a few guys hit him up right after it happened," Callaway said.

          Rosario entered Sunday's game in the seventh and doubled in his only at-bat.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Marlins: IF Martin Prado (hamstring) began a rehab assignment with Double-A Jacksonville on Sunday. ... RHP Tayron Guerrero (finger) continued his rehab by throwing a scoreless inning for Class A Jupiter.

          UP NEXT

          Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (6-6, 4.69 ERA) opens a two-game set at Minnesota on Tuesday. Wheeler allowed six runs in five innings in his previous start against Philadelphia on July 7.

          Marlins: RHP Jordan Yamamoto (3-0, 1.24) begins a three-game series against San Diego on Tuesday. Yamamoto has the third-best ERA in the majors since making his debut on June 12.
