MIAMI (AP) — Zack Wheeler struggled with his command on the mound early, and reliever Jeurys Familia and the New York Mets struggled in the field late.
Miami took advantage of some wildness by Familia (2-4) in the eighth. Familia had two throwing errors and a wild pitch, leading to the three tiebreaking runs as the Marlins snapped a five-game losing streak to the Mets with a 9-6 win Monday.
