Mets win 8th straight with late inning rally

In his first big league start, Jarlin Garcia didn’t allow a hit in six innings, but the left-hander didn’t conserve enough pitches to work any deeper into the game. After he was lifted, Adrian Gonzalez delivered the go-ahead two-run single as the Mets rallied to a 4-1 win over the Marlins on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep at Marlins Park.

The Mets (10-1) have won eight straight and improved their best start in franchise history. For the second straight game, they got to the Marlins’ bullpen in the eighth inning.

New York’s first hit came on a two-out single in the seventh by Todd Frazier off Drew Steckenrider. In the decisive four-run eighth, Kevin Plawecki was struck by a Tayron Guerrero 98-mph fastball. With one out, Chris O’Grady relieved Guerrero to face pinch-hitter Michael Conforto, who doubled. Gonzalez’s pinch-hit two-run single put New York in front for good. Wilmer Flores knocked an RBI ground-rule double and Frazier hit a sacrifice fly off Junichi Tazawa.
