Zack Wheeler Takes No-Hitter into 7th, Mets Win in 10
Zack Wheeler took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Tuesday night in Miami and the Mets eventually beat the Marlins in 10 innings.
David Wright led off the fourth inning with a double and advanced to third on a line out. With two outs John Buck walked and Juan Lagares followed with a triple to give the Mets a 2-0 lead.
The Marlins finally got to Wheeler in the seventh. With one out he walked Logan Morrison and then Ed Lucas got Miami’s first hit of the game. Back to back singles by Donovan Solano and Josh Marisnick tied the game at two.
Zack Wheeler was done after seven innings and just 87 pitches, allowing two runs on three hits. He walked three and struck out five.
So the Mets went to extra innings once again. Singles by David Wright, Marlon Byrd and a walk to Ike David loaded the bases with no outs in the 10th inning. John Buck then came through with a two-run double to give the Mets a 4-2 lead. Juan Lagares sacrificed for some reason. Omar Quintanilla was intentionally walked t o load the bases again and Josh Satin hit a grounder to third; Davis was forced at home. Eric Young grounded out to end the inning.
Bobby Parnell came on in the bottom of the 10th and closed things out, courtesy of two good plays on the infield.
Mets win 4-2.
