Mets RHP Rafael Montero turned in his second straight quality start Saturday night, allowing one run on six hits in six innings during the Mets' 8-1 win over the Marlins at Citi Field.
Montero kept the Marlins off the board until the sixth inning when Marcell Ozuna's RBI single plated Dee Gordon for the Marlins' only run of the game. In the end, Montero struck out five batters and walked three as he picked up his second win of the year.
Montero's outing came five days after he earned no-decision against the Yankees when he allowed two earned runs and struck out six batters across six innings of work. Over the last two starts, Montero has posted a 2.25 ERA with 11 strikeouts and five walks.
The 26-year-old is 2-8 with a 5.47 ERA in 24 games for the Mets this season.
