The Streak is Over: The Marlins face the Mets in Game 2

And after seven losses in a row, the Miami Marlins exhaled a bit, sending New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom to the showers in an 8-6 win to snap a losing streak that had some of us wondering if manager Don Mattingly’s future was in jeopardy.

On Friday night, the Marlins proved they could break out the lumber and challenge one of the best pitchers in baseball. And for one night, talk about how bad this baseball team has been did not seem to matter. The third time facing deGrom, the reigning National League Cy Young Award winner was the charm.
