Realmuto’s heroics lift Marlins over Mets


J.T. Realmuto hit a game-ending RBI double with two out in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins snapped the New York Mets’ five-game win streak with a 3-2 victory on Friday night.

The Marlins avoided extra innings after a 16-inning loss to the Mets on Thursday.

New York’s Noah Syndergaard allowed two runs, one earned, in six innings, and his ERA soared to 0.95. Syndergaard struck out four and still hasn’t walked a batter in 19 innings this season.

Miguel Rojas had three hits for Miami and walked to lead off the ninth against Josh Edgin (0-1). Realmuto hit a 3-2 pitch into the right-center field gap, and Rojas scored without a play.

Realmuto’s first career game-ending hit produced the first run for Miami against New York’s bullpen in 14 innings in the series.

The Mets’ Lucas Duda hit his fourth homer in the fifth.

New York slugger Yoenis Cespedes, who hit two homers Thursday while battling the flu, was limited to a pinch-hitting role in the eighth, when he struck out. In the wake of the marathon win, Mets second baseman Neil Walker and catcher Travis d’Arnaud were given the night off.

Slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who is 0-for-11 against Syndergaard, was held out of Miami’s starting lineup. He struck out as a pinch-hitter in the seventh.

Marlins starter Edinson Volquez walked four in 4 2/3 innings but allowed only two runs. His start was pushed up a day so he could replace Adam Conley, who pitched the 16th inning and took the loss Thursday.

Jose Reyes went from first to third on a sacrifice bunt in the sixth, but Marlins reliever Jarlin Garcia — making his major league debut — escaped the jam to keep the score at 2-all. A.J. Ramos (1-1), Miami’s sixth pitcher, worked around a walk in a scoreless ninth.

A throwing error by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera led to an unearned run in the first inning against Syndergaard. Christian Yelich had a sacrifice fly.

Syndergaard gave up three consecutive singles in the fifth, including Dee Gordon’s game-tying hit.

New York left fielder Michael Conforto threw out Rojas trying to score from third on a flyout in the seventh. The call stood following a review, which drew boos from spectators who saw the replays differently.

The Marlins won despite going 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position.

PITCHING CHANGES

Both teams made moves before the game to reinforce weary bullpens. The Mets recalled left-hander Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned infielder T.J. Rivera to Las Vegas. The Marlins recalled Garcia from Double-A Jacksonville.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Marlins: 3B Martin Prado (right hamstring) is on schedule to rejoin the team Monday for the start of a nine-game trip. … SS Adeiny Hechavarria (strained left oblique) is expected to go on a rehab assignment before returning.

UP NEXT

RHP Jacob deGrom (0-0, 1.50 ERA) is scheduled to start Saturday for the Mets against LHP Conley (1-1, 3.00 ERA), who pitched emergency relief Thursday and gave up Travis d’Arnaud’s game-winning homer.
