Miami is still seeking its first win over the Mets in 2015. Jacob deGrom pitched well and a ninth inning rally fell short as the Marlins fell to the Mets 5-4 on Saturday night.
Mat Latos turned in his longest outing of the season, tossing five innings while allowing two runs, striking out five and walking one. A Juan Lagares sacrifice fly opened the scoring in the bottom of the second, and Travis D'Arnaud homered in the third to give the Mets an early two run edge.
Jose Urena struggled in the sixth, allowing an Eric Campbell RBI single and Wilmer Flores two-run home run which pushed the Mets' lead to five.
Jacob deGrom continued to have success against the Marlins, logging seven shutout innings while striking out eight and allowing six hits.
The Marlins didn't get on the board until the eighth, when a Dee Gordon RBI single gave the club its first run of the night. Michael Morse homered against Carlos Torres in the ninth, and Gordon added a two-RBI single to draw the Marlins within a run. However, Alex Torres retired Christian Yelich to end the rally.
Brad Hand pitched an inning in relief for the Marlins, who face the Mets on Sunday afternoon.
