W: Z. Wheeler (3-7) L: A. Heaney (0-1)
HR: NYM - D. Wright (6) MIA - None
Recap:Zack Wheeler and the New York Mets got the best of Andrew Heaney during the Marlins prospect's major-league debut.
Wheeler tossed his first shutout and made David Wright's first-inning home run hold up in the Mets' 1-0 victory over Miami on Thursday night.
Wheeler (3-7) outdueled Heaney in the longest outing of the Mets starter's career.
New York, which won at St. Louis on Wednesday, has consecutive victories for the first time since a three-game streak from May 31-June 2. The Mets had dropped eight straight on the road before Wednesday.
Wheeler, the No. 6 pick in the 2009 draft, struck out eight. He allowed three hits and one walk, and 70 of his 111 pitches were strikes.
He pitched to only one batter over the minimum and was helped by three double plays.
The 24-year old right-hander lowered his ERA to 0.96 in four starts against the Marlins.
Heaney (0-1) gave up four hits in six innings, allowing only Wright's home run. The 23-year old lefty, the ninth pick in the 2012 draft, struck out three and walked one.
It was a battle between two young starters that could see a lot of each other in coming years in the NL East.
Heaney allowed an infield hit to Eric Young, Jr. to begin the game, but got Daniel Murphy to bounce into a double play. Wright then hit his sixth homer of the season off the sculpture in deep left-center field.
No one else got into scoring position against Heaney.
Bryan Morris relieved Heaney in the seventh and faced a bases loaded situation, but he got Wheeler to ground out and end the threat.
Wheeler, who made his much-anticipated debut a year and a day before Heaney, complimented his mound opponent.
Kevin Gregg pitched the ninth in his season debut with Miami. He earned 61 saves for the Marlins in 2007-08.
Reed Johnson singled in the ninth off Wheeler with two outs, but Rafael Furcal lined out to center to end the game. Wheeler threw a 95 mph fastball on his final pitch.
