Now that’s a whoopin.
The Miami Marlins announced their presence with authority upon arriving at Citi Field Monday night with a seven-run second inning, mauling the defending NL Champion New York Mets 10-3.
Giancarlo Stanton clubbed his second homer of the season, making his only hit count in a game where six of his teammates followed Dee Gordon‘s lead in posting multi-hit games. Neither starting pitcher made it out of the fifth inning in this one, something to monitor as both bullpens correspondingly have been heavily used already, with two games remaining in the series. This could be especially impactful for the Marlins, as both Jose Fernandez and Adam Conley can expect to be treated kindly by manager Don Mattingly in their second starts of the season Tuesday and Wednesday.
