Play of the Game: Logan Morrisons singled to right field in the sixth inning. Juan Pierre scored. Christian Yelich advanced to third base. (+0.179 WPA)

The Miami Marlins pulled out a win against the New York Mets' best pitcher and on one of his numerous good outings. Matt Harvey struck out eight Marlins hitters in 5 2/3 innings, but it was that last out in the sixth inning that proved to be the most difficult. After two singles by Juan Pierre and Christian Yelich, Adeiny Hechavarria and Giancarlo Stanton failed to move the runners home. But Logan Morrison delivered a single to score Pierre from second, and Yelich and Morrison came home as well on a Donovan Solano single.

They also survived as rough a shutout as a pitcher like Tom Koehler could throw. While his counterpart struck out eight and walked none, Koehler struck out just five and also walked five batters in his six innings of work. The difference between the two was that Koehler never ran into too much trouble, thanks in part to his defense. Jake Marisnick recorded a double play on a caught fly ball, catching David Wright sleeping at first base. The Fish recorded another double play to help erase the nine baserunners Koehler allowed.

The bullpen also delivered by shutting out the Mets over the last three innings. A.J. Ramos pitched two solid innings of no-hit ball, and Steve Cishek recovered from his night of rest by striking out two en route to his 23rd save.
