Bullpen Tries To Blow It, But Mets Hold On To Beat Marlins

Things got a little shaky in the ninth inning, but the Mets were able to hold on, beating the Marlins by a score of 7-5. This was the 3,800th franchise win for the Mets.

  • Miguel Batista pitched six innings, giving up two runs on six hits, while striking out three and walking three. This was Batista's 100th career win.
  • Lucas Duda got the Mets on the board after drawing a bases loaded walk in the third inning. David Wright then followed with a big two-run single. Duda would go on to score the fourth run of the inning on a passed ball.
  • The Mets would score three more runs in the eighth inning. With a runner on, Duda hit his 16th double of the season to drive in a run. Duda would once again come around to score after Angel Pagan hit a sacrifice bunt and Marlins pitcher Steve Cishek threw the ball away. A few batters later, Mike Nickeas hit an RBI single to left field.
  • Josh Thole left the game in the second inning after taking a pitch off his left wrist. X-rays were negative, but Thole will see a hand specialist.
  • D.J. Carrasco was charged with three runs in his two-thirds of an inning of work. After giving up a two-run single to Emilio Bonifacio, Carrasco was taken out, and Bobby Parnell entered the game. He allowed Bonifacio to score, but was then able to get Greg Dobbs to pop out and end the game.

Next Up: The Mets head to Washington D.C. for a weekend series with the Nationals. R.A. Dickey will take the mound against Ross Detwiler. Game time is 7:05 p.m.
