PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler took a step back Wednesday in the Mets' 15-9 loss to the Miami Marlins, a shaky sign for New York with opening day less than two weeks away.
Matz gave up five runs and eight hits in four innings, including one run in the first and four in the second.
"I was up in the zone. Last time I was up out of the zone and had some walks," Matz said. "This time (the fastballs) were up in the zone and they were able to get their barrels to it more."
