The Mets beat the Marlins yesterday with a 8-4 final score. The Mets collected 15 hits, including a 4 hit game from Robinson Cano. Cano went 4 for 4 with a double, 2 runs scored and a RBI.
Other solid performances came from Starling Marte (2-4, R, 2RBI, 2B, BB), Pete Alonso (2-4, 2 2B, 2R), Tomas Nido (3-4, RBI, R) and Eduardo Escobar (1-4, HR, R, RBI)
The offense was just enough for Chris Bassitt as he struggled over his 5 innings of work. Bassitt allowed 2 homeruns and 4 runs overall, getting hit charged for 3 in the 4th. Bassitt bounced back with a good 5th to end on a high note in his final tune up. Bassitt struck out 6, allowing 6 hits and 2 walks.
Bassitt was relieved by Chasen Shreve, who kept his fabulous spring going with another hitless inning. Shreve has now pitched 4 hitless innings with just one walk and 6 strikeouts this spring. He will most likely make the team as a lefty reliever with newly acquired Joely Rodriguez.
Trevor Williams finished it off with 3 scoreless frames of his own. Williams allowed three hits and worked out of a bases loaded gem in the ninth, but got the job done. He also got help from a fine diving catch from Jaylen Palmer in center.
Today the Mets will face the Astros at Palm Beach as Carlos Carrasco gets the start for his final tune up. The game will start at 12.05PM and can be watched on MLB.tv (Houston feed)
