New York Mets (46-56)-Miami Marlins(40-63)
HEFNER: Hefner had a second straight poor start after 10 straight great ones. He made it through just 4 1/3 innings, allowing five earned runs and striking out just three. In his previous start, he allowed eight earned runs in two innings.TURNER: Turner gave up two earned runs on six hits, picking up the loss as the Marlins' offense struggled behind him in a 2-1 loss to the Rockies. He has allowed two runs in each of his last three starts, 1-2 over that span.
WHEELER: Zack Wheeler had a solid outing vs. Atlanta, giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits over six innings. He continues to wrestle with his command. But when he pounds the zone, he's been tough to beat.EOVALDI: Rain was all that kept Nathan Eovaldi from his best outing of the year, as the righty threw six scoreless innings before a 93-minute delay forced him out. He allowed just three hits, striking out four and walking two.
MEJIA: Mejia's 2013 debut -- seven scoreless innings -- was impressive enough for the Mets to include him in their six-man rotation. His next turn will come against the Marlins, whom he faced in his MLB debut as a reliever in 2010.ALVAREZ: Alvarez has thrown 13 straight scoreless innings in his last two starts, allowing seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts. His fastball velocity maxed at 98 mph in his last outing. He even added a double at the plate.
HARVEY: For the second time this season Friday, Harvey earned a no-decision despite not allowing an earned run. He has just four wins over his last 17 starts despite a 2.41 ERA, 132 strikeouts and 20 walks over that stretch._________________________________________________KOEHLER: A New York native, Koehler will make his second start (third appearance) against the Mets. On June 9, he gave up four runs in seven innings in a no-decision. He also threw three scoreless innings of relief on April 29.
