For the first sixth innings. the Miami Marlins were no-hit by top pitching prospect Zack Wheeler.

Wheeler and the New York Mets grabbed an early lead against Nathan Eovaldi and the Fish. In the fourth inning, David Wright led off the inning with a double, but Eovaldi was able to eke out two outs directly after. With two outs, John Buck forced a walk and it paid off, as Juan Lugares tripled in both runners. The Fish got out of it by getting Wheeler out, but the damage was done and the Mets had the lead.

Eovaldi had a mediocre outing, as he walked five batters (one intentional) and struck out just four hitters. The good news is the fastball found some extra life, as he was averaging 97 mph on the fastball. However, he only had eight whiffs in 104 pitches and threw 36 balls versus 18 strikes, a two-to-one ratio.

Meanwhile, the Marlins almost got no-hit, as they entered the seventh with just two walks and no hits to their name against the rookie Wheeler. But the seventh inning erupted in station-to-station baseball. Logan Morrison walked, followed by three straight singles by Ed Lucas, Donovan Solano, and Jake Marisnick. Jeff Mathis ruined the party with a double-play grounder, but the Fish had tied the game.

Three innings later, the Fish finally fell, as this time, it was Steve Cishek who suffered the loss. He quickly loaded the basis with two singles and a walk, then Buck beat his former team again with a two-run single that proved to be the game winner.
