Make that seven losses in a row for the Florida Marlins.
The New York Mets (9-10) beat the Florida Marlins (11-8) by a score of 7-1.
The Mini Recap
John Maine was about as good as the Mets could hope for tonight. Though he walked three over six innings, he only allowed one hit. The lone single came in the first inning off the bat of Jorge Cantu, and plated Emilio Bonifacio for an unearned run. Sean Green, J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez finished out the final three innings for the win.
The Mets bats got off to a hot start, as they scored six runs in the first inning. Four of those runs came when Omir Santos hit a two-out grand slam over the left field wall, the first home run of his career. Gary Sheffield and David Wright had earlier picked up RBI singles and a Ryan Church sac-fly in the 8th brought in the Mets final run.
An all-around good game from the Mets. Great to see.
