New York got on the board in the second inning with a three run homer from rookie Michael Conforto that drove in Kelly Johnson and Travis d' Arnaud. Jumping ahead to the fifth inning, Koehler gave up a double to Yoenis Cespedes that drove in Curtis Granderson. Later in the inning, Milmer Flores hit a double that drove in Cespedes. After this Koehler was removed after 4.1 innings of work and six earned runs allowed.
Andre Rienzo was brought into finish off the fifth. The second batter he faced, Kelly Johnson, grounded but but drove in Wilmer Flores to score. In the sixth inning, Rienzo would give up a double to Cespedes that allowed Conforto and Granderson to score. Later Cespedes would score because of a wild pitch from Rienzo.
Chris Reed was brought in by Miami to pitch two innings. He would go on to give up a single to Curtis Granderson that allowed Johnson and Conforto to score.
