Evans' Big Hits Help Mets In Win Over Fish

It was a long night, but after one rain delay and twelve innings, the Mets were able to beat the Marlins by a score of 7-4.

  • Miguel Batista went six innings, giving up one run on five hits, while striking out three and walking four.
  • Nick Evans had not one, not two, but three tie-breaking singles in the game.
  • The Mets went into the bottom of the ninth inning, leading the Marlins, 4-2. Bobby Parnell then entered the game and you can guess what happened next. Parnell blew his second consecutive save opportunity, giving up a two-run double to Mike Cameron.
  • Josh Stinson recorded his first Major League save, throwing a 1-2-3 12th inning.

Next Up: The Mets finish up their series with the Marlins on Thursday. R.A. Dickey gets the start. Game time is 5:10 p.m.
