MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — The Miami Marlins rout the New York Mets 8-6 Friday night, snap a seven-game losing skid.
The Marlins scored for the first time in 27 innings and pounded Jacob deGrom.
Garrett Cooper’s two-run single in the third brought home Miami’s first runs since Saturday — also against deGrom. Jorge Alfaro hit a 456-foot home run, only the Marlins’ second homer this month, and drove in three. Brian Anderson doubled twice and scored twice.
DeGrom (3-5) gave up nine hits, and the run total against him was a season high. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner’s ERA rose from 3.
