MLB Scores: New York Mets 9, Miami Marlins 1

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Marlins fell to the New York Mets 9-1 on Sunday afternoon. Brad Hand exited early with an injury, and the Marlins' offense couldn't rally against Jacob deGrom.

Instead of heading into the All-Star break with a bit of optimism, the Miami Marlins will head into the days off deflated. Miami was swept by the Mets following a 9-1 loss to New York on Sunday afternoon, and the Marlins won just three of nine games on the road trip.

Brad Hand pitched well early, despite allowing a sacrifice fly off the bat of Chris Young with runners on first and third and nobody out to give the Mets a 1-0 edge,

A Jacob deGrom RBI single and Curtis Granderson RBI double against Hand in the fourth gave the Mets a three run advantage, and Hand subsequently left the game with a contusion after being hit by a line drive.

In his four innings of work, Hand walked two and struck out just one Met.

deGrom pitched well against the Marlins in his last outing against Miami, and did the same on Sunday. Aside from a Marcell Ozuna infield RBI single in the top of the fourth that tied the game at one, drGrom held the Marlins off the board. In seven innings, he struck out eight.

Juan Lagares and David Wright RBI doubles against Jacob Turner in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively, made it a 5-1 contest, and the struggles of Kevin Gregg and Chris Hatcher in the bottom of the eighth led to the Mets adding four runs and putting the game out of reach for the Marlins, who have had difficulty scoring runs on the road trip.

Miami returns home to host the Giants for a weekend series following the All-Star break.
