Well, Justin Verlander is so far still a Met and we've waiting long enough for his start. A fun matchup since he will face Johnny Cueto, back as a Marlin in time to fill the sport for Trevor Rogers who has missed 2 months and is still not rehabbing - a threshold for us not using a card.
Update - Verlander 6 shutout innings, and Cueto gave up 3 runs in 5.2 innings. However it was newly traded David Robertson who kept it from getting worse by coming in with bases loaded to get his recent teammate Tommy Pham to ground out as shown in this photo.
And Verlander perhaps a fitting Mets end. After 6 scoreless innings the Mets horrible fielding resulted in a bad news bears 7th inning as 5 runs scored on an error and allowing 3 clutch defense plays to go through for hits. It was almost a disasterous David Robertson win and Verlander loss in what could be his finale, but the Mets did tie it so neither got the decision, before the Marlins scored in the 9th to win 6-5.
Our second game was a 5-1 Marlins Win to cap a 4 games to 2 series. The game was rained out after 4 1-2 innings. Cooper hit a grandslam in the 3rd inning to break a 1-1 tie, the with he tying run at the plate and bases loaded in the top of the 5th, Wendle made a diving catch on a clutch defensive play and doubled off the runner as the last play if the game before the rains halted the game.
