With a combined no-hitter going for the Marlins on the New York Mets until the eighth, a late rally was halted by a J.T. Riddle walk-off HR.

After a solid six-inning start from Matt Harvey, the New York Mets fell in the bottom of the ninth on a walk-off two-run bomb by Miami Marlins shortstop J.T. Riddle off replacement closer Addison Reed.

Another Late Loss

The bullpen has been a growing issue this season, and Reed couldn’t hold steady after the Mets tied up the game 2-2 in the top of the ninth.

Leading up to the tie, Asdrubal Cabrera hit a pinch-hit single, scoring Travis d’Arnaud and pinch-runner Juan Lagares, after Wilmer Flores hit a hustle double due to a Giancarlo Stanton boot in right field.

Riddle smacked his first career home run off of Reed in the bottom of the ninth, just after Yoenis Cespedes made an incredible bare-handed grab and throw to the cut-off man Cabrera, who gunned out left fielder Marcell Ozuna at home.

Nearly a No-Hitter

The Marlins had a combined no-no going until Neil Walker cracked a single through the shift with two outs in the eighth. The Mets had walked five times off starter Dan Straily, who was pulled after 5.1 innings by manager Don Mattingly with 93 pitches thrown.

Lineup inconsistency has become a highlighted issue again early this season, and it hasn’t been more prevalent in any game than this one so far. After almost being no-hit, the Mets produced five hits over the last 1.1 innings on the day.

What Else To Know From Today

Harvey had another solid start, as his final line read as follows: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K — the unearned run was due to a Harvey error on a pick-off throw to first.

Walker reached base in all four of his plate appearances today, walking three times and knocking the single that broke up the no-no. Manager Terry Collins annointed him with the second spot in the lineup today against the righty Straily.

d’Arnaud received a hard knock in the head while behind the plate today, and Collins talked in a postgame press conference about being worried, especially since the backstop had his eyes shut when he came to check on him.

Jose Reyes struggled yet again, going 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout, bringing his batting average on the year to .087. Jay Bruce also had his fair share of issues on the day, as he struck out three times in four at-bats.
