The Miami Marlins (56-80) salvaged the final game of their six-game road trip on Thursday and return home on Friday to host the National League East-leading New York Mets (87-51) for a three-game series at loanDepot park that opens on Friday. Miami snapped its nine-game losing streak while the Mets were off Thursday after a doubleheader sweep on Wednesday at Pittsburgh. New York has a half-game lead over the Braves in the NL East, down from a 10-and-a-half game lead it once had back on June 1. The Mets lead the Marlins 10-4 in the season series. This is an important series New York and its hopes of winning the NL East.
