Jacob deGrom is either baseball's most patient man or the owner of its best poker face. Either way, perhaps the New York Mets can do Sunday for Marcus Stroman what they've yet to do for their two-time Cy Young Award winner.

The Mets will look to snap out of their early season offensive doldrums and win a series against the visiting Miami Marlins Sunday afternoon, when the National League East rivals are scheduled to play the rubber game of a three-game set.

Stroman (1-0, 1.50 ERA) is slated to make his second start of the season. The Marlins had not announced a starter as of late Saturday.

Another brilliant outing by deGrom didn't result in a win for the ace right-hander Saturday, when he tied a career high with 14 strikeouts but took the loss after giving up a homer to Jazz Chisholm in the second inning of the Marlins' 3-0 win.

DeGrom, who allowed five hits and walked none over eight innings, has thrown at least seven innings, allowed two runs or fewer and not earned a win a major league-high 34 times since he debuted in 2014.

"This is something that we're definitely familiar with and we want to try and stop this from happening in the future," Mets center fielder Brandon Nimmo said.

So far this season, it's been more of the same for deGrom, who is 0-1 despite an 0.64 ERA with 21 strikeouts and two walks in 14 innings. He exited with a two-run lead Monday night against the Philadelphia Phillies, who came back against the Mets' bullpen to earn a 5-3 win in New York's season opener.

DeGrom said Saturday he thinks the Mets' offensive struggles -- they've scored five runs in the last three games and are batting .146 (6-for-41) with runners in scoring position this season -- might be a result of the delay they experienced when a series against the Washington Nationals scheduled to begin April 1 was postponed due to the Nationals' coronavirus outbreak.

"I think it definitely didn't help us, having that little bit of time off," deGrom said. "These guys ramped up and then didn't really get to see live pitching for a number of days. I think that has a lot to do with it. Hopefully we get going here soon and start a winning streak."

The Marlins are hoping Saturday's win serves as a much-needed spark. Miami has lost five of its first seven and has scored 24 runs, which includes a 12-run outburst against the Tampa Bay Rays on April 3.

But Taylor Rogers struck out 10 over six innings Saturday before a trio of relievers set down the final nine Mets batters. The Marlins added a pair of ninth-inning insurance runs to seal Rogers' second big league win -- and his second against the Mets and deGrom at Citi Field. He also earned the victory in Miami's 5-3 win last Aug. 31.

"He's the best in baseball," Rogers said. "You always have to bring your best and then some. Just to see that not only me but our whole team can go out and compete with the best just shows you how good we all are."

Stroman earned the win Tuesday, when he allowed one run over six innings as the Mets beat the Phillies, 8-4. He has never opposed the Marlins.

Miami Marlins vs. New York Mets Recap APR 10TH 2021

The Miami Marlins made an extra trip to New York worth their while, saddling Mets ace Jacob deGrom with his first loss of the season while earning a 5-3 victory in a makeup game Monday afternoon.

The Marlins scored four runs off deGrom (2-1) in the sixth inning, with three of them unearned.

Marlins rookie starter Trevor Rogers (1-0) gave up two runs on two hits over five innings with two walks and five strikeouts to earn his first career victory in his second career appearance. He also started against the Mets on Tuesday and went four scoreless innings in a no-decision.

Monday's game was scheduled to make up for a contest on Thursday when both teams declined to play while recognizing an MLB-wide social justice movement. The Marlins flew from Miami to New York for the one game and will return to play at home Tuesday.

deGrom retired the first eight Miami batters of the game, five on strikeouts, but the Marlins' breakthrough came quickly in the sixth. Trailing 2-0, Miami's Garrett Cooper hit a leadoff home run, his second.

After Matt Joyce reached on a fielding error by Mets first baseman Pete Alonso, Lewin Diaz's one-out RBI double tied the game 2-2 and the Marlins took a 3-2 lead on Miguel Rojas' two-out RBI single. Jorge Alfaro added an RBI double in the inning to make it 4-2.

It was deGrom's fourth consecutive start against the Marlins. The right-hander gave up a combined three earned runs in the prior three and is 1-1 against Miami

The Mets took a 2-0 lead in the third inning. Jeff McNeil doubled to drive in Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith delivered a sacrifice fly to score Brandon Nimmo.

In the sixth, the Mets cut the deficit to 4-3 on a home run by Robinson Cano, his sixth of the season. The Marlins' Brian Anderson made it a two-run lead again at 5-3 in the seventh with his fifth home run of the season.

Marlins right-hander Brandon Kintzler earned his seventh save with a scoreless ninth inning. The Mets lost their fourth consecutive game, while the Marlins ended a four-game losing streak.

During the game, the Marlins traded second baseman Jonathan Villar to the Blue Jays and acquired outfielder Starling Marte from the Diamondbacks. The Mets acquired catcher Robinson Chirinos from the Texas Rangers.

With the victory, the Marlins improved to 14-7 on the road this season. They are just 1-8 at home.
