The Marlins were confident they would be able to win the series with a victory on Tuesday night, but Nathan Eovaldi's struggles continued and the Marlins' offense couldn't rally against Bartolo Colon in a 9-1 loss to the Mets in game two of the three game set.
Miami got on the board first against Bartolo Colon in the third. Reed Johnson doubled before a Christian Yelich infield single gave the Marlins a 1-0 edge.
Eovaldi had difficulty throwing strikes in the fourth, and the Mets took advantage. Travis d'Arnaud doubled with one out, and a Wilmer Flores RBI double tied the game. Eovaldi couldn't get out of the inning, as Curtis Granderson added an RBI single before a Ruben Tejada double made it a 4-1 contest.
In four and a third innings, Eovaldi allowed six runs while walking and striking out two.
Colon pitched out of a bases loaded one out jam in the top of the fifth, and Flores' three-run home run to left field against Brad Penny made it a six run game.
Flores added a two-run home run against Penny in the seventh as the Mets continued to add on.
Andrew Heaney pitched well in the final inning and two thirds for the Marlins, who can still win the series with a victory on Wednesday.
