Heroes And Zeroes: Marlins 7, Mets 3

Stanton and Ichiro! go deep in Miami's series win over New York.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Heroes and Zeroes is a series of articles which focus on the players who had the most impact at the plate and on the mound. I used the Wins Probability Added (WPA) chart at to help sort out the details.


Giancarlo Stanton (MIA) .298

Stanton, batting third for the Marlins, came to bat down by two with one out and Martin Prado on first in the first inning, and hit a two run blast to even the score (+18.7%). He lined out to shortstop for the second out of the third (-1.8%), singled with two out and Donovan Solano on third in the fifth to tie the game at three (+14.7%), and struck out swinging with a man on first to end the seventh (-1.8%).

Michael Cuddyer (NYM) .195

Cuddyer, batting cleanup for the Mets, hit a two-out, two-run blast in the top of the first inning (+19.8%). He flew out to right to end the third (-1.0%), flew out to center with a man on first to end the fifth (-2.3%), and slapped an infield single with two out in the seventh (+3.1%).

Dee Gordon (MIA) .169

Gordon got his average back up above .400 with a two-hit night. Leading off for the Fish, he singled to shortstop in the first inning (+3.9%), flew out to center with a man on second to close out the second (-3.4%), and singled to right with a man on first with nobody out in the fifth (+8.6%). With one out in the seventh, he hit a sacrifice fly to score Adeiny Hechavarria and give Miami a 4-3 lead (+7.9%).

Duda batted third for the Mets, singling to center with two out in the first (+1.2%), later scoring on Cuddyer's home run. With one out in the third inning, he hit an RBI ground out to score Curtis Granderson (+2.9%). He drew a walk in the fifth (+1.3%) before doing the Mets some damage in the eighth inning by erasing Juan Lagares with a 3-4-3 double play (-17.8%).

Martin Prado (MIA) -.210

Prado, batting second for Miami, started his night by grounding into a fielders' choice which erased Dee Gordon (-3.5%), then scored on Stanton's home run. He flew out to center to open the third (-2.7%), and grounded into a double play with nobody out and two on in the fifth (-15.8%). He added a single to right field with two out in the seventh (+1.0%).

Bartolo Colon (NYM) -.320

Colon pitched long enough to qualify for a quality start, but allowed too many runs. He didn't walk anyone, but gave up nine hits and struck out two in 6.2 innings, allowing four earned runs (including Stanton's long ball).
