Michael Conforto got booed. Edwin Diaz got booed. Jacob deGrom got shafted.

Saturday afternoon at Citi Field had zero offensive and bullpen highlights from the Mets, turning what should have been a celebrated deGrom performance into just another frustrating day for the stud right-hander.

DeGrom matched a career high with 14 strikeouts, but the Mets lost 3-0 to the Marlins in just their latest display of lineup and bullpen malfeasance to begin the season.

The Mets (2-3) managed just three hits and watched as their closer Diaz was removed with two outs in the ninth after allowing two earned runs. Conforto struck out three times and went 0-for-4. In the home opener two days earlier, he leaned into a pitch with the bases loaded in the ninth to force in the game-winning run.

It was a second straight superb deGrom start that ended with a Mets loss. In Monday’s season opener in Philadelphia, he pitched six shutout innings (removed after 77 pitches) and watched the bullpen implode in the eighth inning.

On this day, he allowed one run on five hits over eight innings, reaching 14 strikeouts for the fourth time in his career.

Left-hander Trevor Rogers manhandled the Mets, allowing just three hits with 10 strikeouts and two walks over six innings. Brandon Nimmo’s double leading off the game for the Mets was the only extra-base hit against Rogers.

Boos for the struggling Conforto intensified in the sixth, with his third straight strikeout against Rogers. Pete Alonso followed with a strikeout, leaving runners stranded at first and third after deGrom had reached on an infield single to lead off the inning and Brandon Nimmo walked. The rally began to stall when Francisco Lindor was retired, preceding the strikeouts of Conforto and Alonso.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. jumped a 100 mph fastball from deGrom in the second inning, crushing it into the second deck in right field to give the Marlins a 1-0 lead. Leading into that at-bat, deGrom had struck out four of the five batters he faced.

DeGrom’s strikeout of Rogers to end the fifth was his 10th of the afternoon, moving him alone into second place in franchise history (he was previously tied with Dwight Gooden) for games reaching double digits. DeGrom has 47 career double-digit strikeout games and trails only Tom Seaver (60) in Mets history.

5 things to know for August 17: Primaries, Covid, Hearing aids, Water cuts, Ukraine

(CNN)High inflation and rising interest rates are fueling fears that a recession could be around the corner. But Warren Buffett -- one of the savviest investors of all time -- is still betting on America's economy. While Buffett has reduced stakes in companies like Kroger and General Motors, market watchers say his willingness to keep buying elsewhere signals his ongoing confidence in where the economy and the financial markets are headed.

Here's what you need to know to Get Up to Speed and On with Your Day. (You can get "5 Things You Need to Know Today" delivered to your inbox daily. Sign up here.)1. PrimariesThe near-term political fate of Republican Rep. Liz Cheney was decided Tuesday after Wyoming voters ousted her from her House seat. "This primary election is over, but now the real work begins," Cheney said, delivering scathing remarks about former President Donald Trump, after losing to Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman. In her concession speech, Cheney vowed to continue to fight the former President's election lies and steer the GOP away from his influence. Since the January 6, 2021, insurrection at the US Capitol, Cheney has become the Republican Party's most forceful critic of Trump and has helped lead the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot. She is the eighth of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump to now exit the House. Separately, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska is squaring off in the first of what's likely to be two rounds against the Trump-endorsed Kelly Tshibaka. Former Gov. Sarah Palin, meanwhile, is attempting a political comeback in a special election for the state's lone House seat.Read More2. Covid-19The White House says a new type of Covid-19 vaccine specially designed to protect against the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants will be available next month. If the shots meet FDA standards, they will likely be available in early to mid-September, White House Covid-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha said on Tuesday. The Biden administration is currently trying to "get out of the acute emergency phase" where the US government is buying the vaccines, treatments, and diagnostic tests. "My hope is that in 2023, you're going to see the commercialization of almost all of these products," Jha said. "Some of that is actually going to begin this fall, in the days and weeks ahead," he added. Separately, first lady Dr. Jill Biden tested positive for Covid-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms, her spokesperson said Tuesday.

Hearing aidsHearing aids should get cheaper and possibly even better due to a long-awaited rule change that the FDA announced Tuesday. Instead of getting a prescription, visiting a hearing health professional and having a custom fitting, people with mild to moderate hearing loss will be able to buy hearing aids directly from a store or online. This move will make hearing aids much more widely available across the country, FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf said. Data shows about 1 in 8 people in the US ages 12 and older has hearing loss in both ears, and the rate increases significantly with age. About a quarter of people 65 to 74 have hearing loss, and that goes up to 50% around age 75. But only about 16% of the tens of millions of people with hearing loss use a hearing aid. The FDA estimates people could see over-the-counter hearing aids on the market as early as October.4. Water cutsThe federal government is implementing new mandatory water cuts for the Southwest US due to an extraordinary drought that is drying up the Colorado River and draining the nation's largest reservoirs -- Lake Mead and Lake Powell. The federal government announced Tuesday the Colorado River will operate in a Tier 2 shortage condition for the first time starting in January. This means Arizona, Nevada and Mexico will have to further reduce their Colorado River use beginning in January, or the federal government may step in and take control of the states' water management plans. As a result, states, water managers and tribes are now back at the negotiating table to figure out how to solve the West's water crisis.

UkraineAs the war in Ukraine rages on, Russian forces are now using up to 60,000 rounds of ammunition each day, a Ukrainian official said. That estimate is in line with many made by Western analysts about the volume of ammunition being used by Russian forces after a relative lull in early July. Russia's main efforts are concentrated on "pushing Ukrainian troops back from the Donetsk oblast," the commander-in-chief of Ukraine's armed forces said. Meanwhile, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Moscow has "no need" to use nuclear weapons to achieve its objectives in Ukraine. This comes after Ukraine called for tougher sanctions against Russia for "nuclear blackmail" following various explosions around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.
