The Mets were able to pick up a 5-3 victory on Opening Day thanks to a seventh-inning go-ahead two-run double from Brandon Nimmo. Miami bounced back on Friday with a 2-1 win in which solo homers from Jorge Soler and Jazz Chisholm were all the offense they needed. The Mets finished 2022 with a 101-61 record. However, they were eliminated in the Wild Card round. The Marlins were just 69-93. The teams finished second and fourth in the NL East, respectively.
