Snydergaard exits early, Mets lose to Marlins 3-2

Straily, who entered with a 7.56 ERA in his first two starts, tossed 5 1-3 no-hit innings before being lifted after issuing a pair of walks.

The Marlins (7-5) took three of four in the weekend series against NY (7-6). Flores slammed his batting helmet into his leg while Ozuna flashed a big smile to his teammates.

Charlie Blackmon led off the game with a homer and Nolan Arenado celebrated his 26th birthday with a two-run double to cap a three-run first inning as the Rockies took three of the four games in the series.

Travis d'Arnaud led off the 16th inning with a home run, giving him a career-high four hits, and the Mets beat the Miami Marlins 9-8 for their fifth consecutive victory.

Both homers came off reliever Fernando Salas (0-1). He gave up only one earned run and six hits over six innings helping keep the Mets in the game throughout.

Straily was leaving some balls high in the zone and it didn't help that he had already thrown 93 pitches. Realmuto hit a 3-2 pitch that reached the right-center field wall on one bounce, and Rojas scored without a play.

"I didn't even see it go out", Riddle said.

Miami Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna robbed Wilmer Flores and the Mets of extra bases and their first hit on Sunday afternoon.

Acquired from Minnesota in November 2015, Hicks hit.217 with 31 RBIs in a miserable first season with NY. Cabrera's relay to the plate cut down Ozuna, though the Marlins unsuccessfully challenged, alleging that catcher d'Arnaud improperly blocked the plate.

A throwing error by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera led to an unearned run in the first inning against Syndergaard.

Miami almost went up 3-2 in the seventh.

The Marlins almost won it one batter before Riddle when Miguel Rojas drove a double to left that started Marcell Ozuna racing around the bases on an attempt to score from first.

New York Mets' Matt Harvey delivers a pitch during the first inning of a baseball game against the Miami Marlins, Sunday, April 16, 2017, in Miami.

Mike Leake outpitched 2016 NL Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer, Stephen Piscotty homered and had five RBIs, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Washington Nationals 6-1 to avoid a three-game sweep. The last time rain forced cancellation of a game at AT&T Park was in April 2006.

Ozuna is having a strong series against the Mets with two home runs and five RBIs on the weekend. The Marlins recalled Garcia from Double-A Jacksonville.

NOTES: Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard, the first pitcher in franchise history to start the season with 20 strikeouts and no walks, is unlikely to miss time despite two cracked and bloody nails on his pitching hand. Chris Rusin (1-0) pitched the next 3 1/3 innings, allowing one run and two hits.
