Seven things to know about Tuesday's game
1) Amed Rosario, fresh off his go-ahead RBI base hit the night before, delivered the big blow in the first inning with a two-RBI double to put them up 4-0. He finished the game 1-for-4.
2) After Edwin Diaz threw 29 pitches in relief on Monday, Justin Wilson was called on for a five-out save and escaped a ninth-inning scare when he got out of a first and second one-out jam with a game-ending line drive double-play at Rosario.
3) Seth Lugo made the game a little interesting in the late innings, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk in 1.1 innings as he let the Marlins back into the game.
4) Brandon Nimmo left the game in the seventh inning after he was hit by a pitch on the hand but X-rays came back negative. He will be re-evaluated on Wednesday.
5) Jason Vargas settled in after allowing a run in the first, allowing just two earned runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings and striking out two to pick up the win.
6) Dominic Smith picked up right where he left off in Spring Training in his first start of the season, going 2-for-5 with an RBI and run scored.
7) Wilson Ramos also had a nice 2-for-5 day with two runs scored and an RBI single in the five-run first.
Jacob deGrom (1-0, 0.00 ERA) makes his second start of the season when the Mets face Trevor Richards (0-0, 1.50 ERA) and the Marlins on Wednesday at 6:10 p.m. at Marlins Park.
