The Mets beat the Miami Marlins, 5-3, on Tuesday afternoon.

Here are the takeaways...

  • Francisco Lindor hit another home run, ripping a solo shot down the left field line in the fifth inning. He finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI.

  • Marcus Stroman got the start for the Mets and pitched into the sixth inning, leaving runners on first and second and no one out for Jacob Barnes, who got two strikeouts and a pop out to escape the jam. Stroman's final line: 5 IP, three runs on nine hits with no walks and three strikeouts.

  • J.D. Davis made a sparkling play at third base, snagging a sharp short hop off to his right side before getting the force out at second base. He also hit a long solo homer to left field.

  • The Mets scored three runs in the third inning, due in part to some shoddy defense by Marlins center fielder Starling Marte. After a Kevin Pillar triple leading off the inning, Nimmo tripled just out of the reach of Marte with two outs to drive in Pillar before Lindor ripped a double down the left field line to drive Nimmo home. After Michael Conforto was hit by a pitch, Pete Alonso singled to drive in Lindor.

  • Trevor May tossed a scoreless eighth inning.

WHAT'S NEXT

The Mets travel to play the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday at 1:05 p.m.

Taijuan Walker is scheduled to get the start for New York.
