The Marlins and Sandy Alcantara go for the series win against the Mets

Now that Sandy Alcantara has experienced the high point of his career at the All-Star game this past week, can the right-hander step on the mound and win his first start for the Marlins in the second half of the season?

Jacob deGrom, who was Alcantara’s teammate for the National League in the Midsummer Classic, will take the mound for the New York Mets. Both pitchers hope to use the break from the regular season as a springboard to a better record.

Alcantara pitched a scoreless eighth inning on Monday night.
