One of the good things about Spring Training as a team is that you can have games, where you can just completely have things go wrong and the team gets whatever errors and mistakes out of their system. The New York Mets ran into that on Sunday, in their 10-2 loss to the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Miami using a four run First Inning, found a great rhythm offensively and never looked back in earning the victory over New York.
One of the heroes on the offensive side for the Marlins was Jesus Aguilar who had a double and a homer in the game. New York saw a bit of an offensive spark thanks to Brandon Nimmo who had a homer in the Top of the Third Inning and Wilfredo Tovar who had a homer in the Top of the Ninth Innings.
Mike Montgomery saw his Spring Training record go to a 1-01 mark thanks to a 2.2 Inning Performance on the Mound for New York. Montgomery gave up six hits, giving up five runs and striking out two batters in going up against a tough Miami lineup. Meanwhile for the Marlins Daniel Castano, tossed 4.2 innings, giving up five hits and striking out five batters to improve his Spring Training record to 2-1.
