Mets top Marlins to help playoff chances

Noah Syndergaard said he should be back for his next scheduled start after missing Saturday

Mattingly said he can see the correlation to what the Yankees lost in Munson and what the Marlins lost in Fernandez.

The Mets now take Thursday off before concluding the regular season with a three-game weekend series at the Philadelphia Phillies.

Noah Syndergaard struck out eight and allowed one run in six innings Tuesday night, and the Mets totaled 19 hits to beat the grieving Miami Marlins 12-1.

The game was Miami's second since the death of ace Jose Fernandez in a boating accident.

"I'm sure our guys are exhausted", Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. "I think our guys did the best they possibly could in this situation". "It's just hard to make up emotion". Since joining the Mets, in 46 games he has hit just.196 with six home runs and 14 RBI.

The Mets trailed 2-0 early before James Loney hit a two-run homer in the second to tie it. Jose Reyes gave NY a one-run lead in the fourth with a two-out double. Bruce hit six of those 11 pitches foul, and one of them bounced on the top of the dugout and then ricocheted off the arm of a young Mets fan. They wore T-shirts reading "RIP" while clustering around the limousine carrying Fernandez's casket to church for a viewing.

Manager Terry Collins said Bruce is no longer letting pitches get too deep on him before swinging.

Colon tossed only 47 pitches before getting knocked out in the first inning on Monday in Miami, so coming back on short rest might not be overly taxing.

She added that she wanted a toxicology analysis of his tissue carried out, so made a decision to travel with the body part. When she arrived in Graz and the authorities discovered the container, they chose to call a doctor to the scene.

"I told Donnie, what he had to go through the past three days and what he has to go through tomorrow, you don't wish that on anybody", Collins said.

Chaos still lurks on the horizon in the form of a three-team tie for the National League's two wild cards, a headache that the Mets would do well to avoid. Jose Reyes followed with a double of his own to score Lugo, giving the Mets a 3-2 lead.

Bruce gave the Mets the lead for good Tuesday with a towering two-run bomb into the upper deck in an eventual 12-1 win over Miami, and he added another two-run shot Wednesday.

"That's not something that I would ever recommend to any ballplayer in Cuba, to maybe leave the way that we did", Cespedes said through a translator, "but those who have I very much admire". "We had games to play that are very meaningful to us". One night after a heart-tugging victory over NY filled with tributes to their teammate, emotions were more subdued, and Miami's bats were, too.

The Marlins jumped in front early in this game, getting the first two men on against Mets' starter Seth Lugo before Martin Prado drove in two runs with a single, giving Miami a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first.

Four relievers completed a seven-hitter, and Jeurys Familia pitched a ideal ninth for his 50th save - with Fernandez on his mind.

When the series finale ended, several Marlins kneeled at the mound, honoring Fernandez one last time before leaving the field. They will attend a private funeral for Fernandez.

"At the end of the day, we don't want people to feel sorry for what happened to the team, or the results", Prado said. "But the lovely thing about this is we've been together all these days".

For the 13th consecutive season, the Marlins will be spending October at home.
