The New York Mets (33-40) look to make it two in a row against the Miami Marlins (36-36) Friday evening at Marlins Park. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM. Zack Wheeler dominated in the series opener Thursday night, three-hitting the Marlins for his first career shutout. The Mets however, were only able to scrape together one run on six hits with a David Wright solo homer providing the decisive run. They'll need to be better offensively in what should be another pitcher's duel Friday night.
