Mets fail to capitalize on opportunities in series opener

The Mets fell to the Marlins 4-3 in the series opener in part due to a poor performance by David Peterson and in part due to a failure by the offense to cash in on RBI situations in the later innings.

The struggling Marlins offense had no problems getting to David Peterson early, as Garrett Cooper got the Marlins on the board with a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning. Despite striking out seven batters in the 3 23 innings he pitched, Peterson failed to record a clean inning.
