Marlins Drop Series Opener to Mets

The Marlins fell to the Mets by a final score of 6-2 in the series opening game on Friday

The Miami Marlins had their three-game win streak come to an end with a 6-2 loss to the New York Mets on Friday.

Tom Koehler started the game for Miami and lasted six innings. In his time on the mound, Koehler allowed three runs on six hits and ended up with the loss. Koehler struck out six and only walked one in what was a quality start despite the defeat.

That third run off of Koehler actually was an inherited runner that scored while Mike Dunn was on the mound. The lefty reliever allowed a two-run home run which ended up being the game-winner.

Cody Hall would give up two runs in the ninth which put the game out of reach for Miami. This was Hall's first appearance with Miami after being brought up from the minor leagues recently.

Marcell Ozuna hit his 11th home run of the season and added an additional run batted in during the game. Ozuna now has 29 RBI this season.

Justin Bour and Christian Yelich each doubled for Miami. The two-base hits were the eighth of the year for Bour, and the 16th of the season for Yelich. With seven total hits in the game, the Marlins saw nearly half of them go for extra bases.

Miami had its chances to score but failed to do so. With runners in scoring position, the Marlins were 0-5.

The Marlins will turn to Justin Nicolino for Saturday's start against the Mets.
