    MIAMI -- With New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom coming off a one-hit shutout, Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez geared up for a pitching duel Saturday night.Jose knows he has Jacob on the other side of the field capable of throwing zeroes all night, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.DeGrom didnt blank Miami for long, however. He failed to make it out of the fourth inning, and Fernandez and the Marlins beat the Mets 7-2.DeGrom (6-5) allowed 10 hits and five runs, both season highs, and lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his shortest outing since August.I wasnt very good, deGrom said. Seemingly everything I threw went down the middle, and I paid for it.Giancarlo Stanton homered and had his first four-hit game since 2012, driving in three runs to give Fernandez (12-4) all the support he needed.Fernandez gave up two runs in seven innings to match his career high for victories, achieved in his 2013 rookie season. He also had two hits, hiking his average to .265, and drove in the first run.Even when I was at the plate, I was ready to do whatever it takes to win this game, Fernandez said. Nothing unusual there -- he improved to 26-1 with a 1.47 ERA in 37 starts at Marlins Park.Home Run Derby winner Stanton put Miami ahead to stay in the third inning when he hit a majestic two-run homer off the left-field scoreboard above the 401-foot sign. He added an RBI single in the fourth, and singled in the first and sixth, hiking his average to .241 after a prolonged slump.When asked what he saw from Stanton, deGrom answered with a frown.I saw him hit a ball pretty far over the wall, deGrom said.The right-hander allowed at least two baserunners in every inning he worked, and his ERA rose to 2.73.He didnt have command of any of his pitches, manager Terry Collins said. There were a lot of balls in the middle of the plate, and a lot of balls up. Very uncharacteristic, but you know it happens.DeGrom was throwing only in the low 90s in his final inning, several notches below his norm.He was probably tired, Collins said. Those were stressful innings from the start to when he came out of the game, but no Im not concerned.DeGroms best moment came at the plate, where he doubled to lead off the third, his first extra-base hit since July 2015. He scored on a single by Yoenis Cespedes, and James Loneys sacrifice fly gave the Mets a 2-1 lead.But that was all they managed against Fernandez. He hit 99 mph in the first inning, and his final pitch was a 98-mph fastball to Cespedes for strike three.Christian Yelich led off the Miami third with a single, and Stanton dented the scoreboard with a homer that landed between the words BALLS and STRIKES.I didnt break any lights, Stanton said, so that was good.Stanton went 3 for 3 versus deGrom. Yelich and Adeiny Hechavarria had two hits apiece against the Mets starter.Guys did a really good job with deGrom battling him and making him throw a bunch of pitches, Mattingly said. Weve been good with those type of guys. Its the soft-tossing guys weve had a lot of trouble with.SUZUKI UPDATEMiamis Ichiro Suzuki grounded out as a pinch hitter to end the eighth and remained four hits shy of 3,000.TRAINERS ROOMMets: 1B Lucas Duda (back) visited the team, took swings for the first time since his injury and said he hopes to be ready for a rehab assignment in a couple of weeks. I feel good. Im progressing on the right track, said Duda, who hasnt faced pitching yet.UP NEXTLHP Steven Matz (7-6, 3.56) is scheduled to start Sunday for the Mets in the rubber game of the series against RHP Jose Urena (1-1, 6.23).

New Melbourne Victory signing Mitch Austin sympathises with Central Coast fans sick of seeing their best players leave, but says he owes it to himself to try his luck at a bigger A-League force.Austin, 25, switched his allegiances last month, accepting overtures from coach Kevin Muscat to join the club.In doing so, he became the latest example of the talent drain away from the A-Leagues smallest club.In the last two seasons, senior players including Matt Simon (Sydney FC), Zac Anderson (Sydney FC), Liam Reddy (Western Sydney), Michael McGlinchey (Wellington) and Anthony Caceres (Melbourne City via Manchester City) have left the Mariners.Fewer senior players have gone the other way, though ex-Sky Blues pair Jacques Faty and Mickael Tavares could prove to be a welcome change.Austin said he held no bad feelings towards the club but his obligation was to his own career.I just felt at my age I needed to get to one of the bigger clubs to test myself, he said.You have sympathy.(But) they come out and say all the timme, they give people a go and move them on.dddddddddddd.Theyve got some fairly good players in for next year. I think theyll have a better campaign than last year.His first appearance in a navy blue shirt could be the visit of Italian mega-club Juventus later this month, followed by UEFA Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid.Considering his last match for the Mariners was a home derby with Newcastle Jets with just 7,355 in attendance, its quite the culture shock.When I played here (last season) there was 20, 20-odd thousand, he said.The atmosphere and the fans signing ... obviously I wasnt a Victory player but with that kind of atmosphere it spurs you on.That many people shouting and screaming, its what football is all about.Austin said his first goal would be to get into Muscats side.I dont think anyone comes to a club and walks into the team. Thats the first thing, he said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
