Montero shuts down Marlins in Mets' 8-1 win

NEW YORK (AP) Rafael Montero pitched six strong innings in his best effort of the season, Wilmer Flores and Kevin Plawecki each hit long two-run homers to help the New York Mets snap a five-game losing streak with an 8-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Conforto each drove in a run for the Mets, who scored seven runs in the sixth - their season high for an inning - after being held to just three base runners over the first five innings by Vance Worley (2-3). New York began the day with an NL-worst .221 batting average in August.

Aided by five double plays, Montero (2-8) kept the Marlins off-balance with a fastball-slider combination to allow a run and six hits. The right-hander walked three and struck out five. Montero entered the game with a 5.80 ERA and has dealt with wildness and inconsistency over his four-year career.
