The Mets ended their three-game winning streak by losing Tuesday night. They also may have lost Michael Conforto and Robert Gsellman, as they dropped back to eight games under .500 with 86 games to play in the season.
The Mets will try to bounce back tonight in Miami against the Marlins at 7:10 pm ET. Steven Matz (1-1, 3.60 ERA) will start for the Mets. Jeff Locke (0-3, 5.70 ERA) will start for the Marlins.
In Case You Missed It
The Mets lost on Tuesday, 6-3, in the first game of a three-game series with the Marlins. Gsellman exited the game in the fourth inning after suffering a left hamstring strain running to first base.
Michael Conforto was out of the lineup for Tuesday's game as he continues to battle a bruised left hand, which has left him unable to swing a bat.
Former Mets pitcher Anthony Young passed away on Tuesday after batting a brain tumor, the team announced. He was 51 years old.
