Five Takeaway's from Tuesday's game
1) Zack Wheeler pitched eight scoreless innings, extending his scoreless streak to 15 innings. The right-hander struck out five Marlins batters, walking only one, and gave up eight hits. The win makes his record 9-6 on the season, and he now has a good chance of passing his personal best of 12 wins in a single season with nearly two months left in the season.
2) With his solo-shot in the fifth inning, Pete Alonso now has 36 home runs on the season, He is now only five home runs shy of tying Carlos Beltran and Todd Hundley for the most in a single season in team history. Beltran had 41 home runs for the Mets in 2006, while Hundley hit 41 home runs in 1996.
3) Wilson Ramos continued his hot hitting, blasting a three-run home run in the third inning. He now has 12 RBI and two home runs in the month of August.
4) It was another strong night for Jeff McNeil and J.D. Davis, as both outfielders had two hits. McNeil now has 43 multi-hit games through 114 games -- the team record for multi-hit games through this point in the season is 50 by Jose Reyes in 2011.
5) Marlins starting pitcher Hector Noesi's return to the big leagues did not go as hoped for, as he gave up five earned runs including two home runs in just 5.0 innings of work. It was Noesi's first MLB appearance since 2015 when he was a member of the Chicago White Sox.
