Mets RHP Zack Wheeler's scoreless innings streak may have snapped, but he secured yet another win in his start Friday night.
Wheeler entered this contest with the Marlins not allowing a single run over his last two starts. And he kept that streak going to start his night.
The righty got seven straight Marlins hitters out before an error by Amed Rosario allowed Miguel Rojas on base in the bottom of the third. Wheeler, though, would get out of the inning without letting the error hurt him.
Wheeler would keep his no hit bid going through the fourth inning, but Martin Prado eventually put the Marlins in the hit column with a single to left field. But Wheeler kept that scoreless streak going after setting down three straight to end the frame.
However, after a scoreless sixth inning, the Marlins finally broke Wheeler's coveted streak. It was Rojas who launched a two-run homer on Wheeler's 102nd pitch of the night. His streak, then, ended at 22 2/3 innings, which was the longest in the National League.
Wheeler's night would end with a strikeout to JT Riddle, and though the streak ended, he set himself up for his fifth straight win.
It was a successful night that saw Wheeler go at least six innings for five straight starts. Overall, he allowed the two runs on four hits while striking out eight and walking one over seven innings.
