The New York Mets road trip came to a disastrous end, as they Miami Marlins swept them in the three-game series. The Mets fell under .500 for the first time since April 19th, losing six of their last seven games as the Marlins pitching staff mowed down the Mets lineup every night. The Mets were unable to get anything going against a Marlins team that has been dominant at home with a 17-5 record. Here are some things to take away from the series.
The Mets starting pitchers were able to bounce back after ugly performances against the Colorado Rockies in
All three starters, Jon Niese, Bartolo Colon and Zack Wheeler, threw quality
starts and lasted at least six innings. Niese continues to toss gem after gem
