Campos pitched the final two innings to earn his first save of the season. He got Jose Devers to fly out with two runners on to end the game.

Nick Meyer went 2 for 3. He ripped a critical two-out RBI hit in the fourth to put the Mets up 2-0.

Luis Carpio went 2 for 3 with a triple and a run.

In game 1, Jupiter's Lazaro Alonso crushed a walk-off RBI double in extra innings to break a 1-1 tie.
