Jason Bay's fifth career grand slam provided the other four runs in the inning. The Marlins scored their only run in the fifth inning when Justin Ruggiano hit an RBI double.

Chris Young got his fourth victory of the season for the Mets. Young started and went five innings, giving up five hits, but just one earned run. Mark Buehrle took the loss for the Marlins after going seven innings, giving up seven hits and five earned runs.

Mets At Marlins Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The Mets look to continue their winning ways against the Marlins on Sunday, as New York's Chris Young (3-7, 4.64 ERA) will take the mound against Miami's Mark Buehrle (12-11, 3.62 ERA) in hopes for a Mets sweep.

During yesterday's game, the Mets rallied from a two-run deficit with a four run top of the ninth, handing the loss and blown save to Miami's Steve Cishek. Until that point, New York had no answer for Marlins ace Josh Johnson, who pitched eight full innings of baseball, giving up three hits and an earned run. Lucas Duda began the Mets rally in the eigth with an RBI single before Kelly Shoppach cleared the bases to add three more runs in the inning.

New York won 5-3.

Chris Young's last outing for the Mets was not a good one, as the Phillies earned five runs off of him in just over four innings. New York may still have concerns with Young's shoulder, as this is his first season back from surgery.

The game will begin at 1:10 p.m. ET in Miami's Marlins Park, and will be televised by SNY in New York and FS-F HD in Florida.

Mets 5, Marlins 3: New York Rallies To Win In Miami

The New York Mets made it two in a row down in Florida on Saturday night, beating the Miami Marlins 5-3 at Marlins Park.

New York couldn't get anything going against Josh Johnson, who went eight strong innings while allowing just one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four.

Luckily for the Mets he ran out of gas. Steve Cishek came in to relieve Johnson in the ninth and was tattooed for four runs (three earned) in just 0.2 innings.

Lucas Duda started the rally with an RBI single off Cishek to cut the Marlins lead to 3-2. Kelly Shoppach then followed with his first clutch hit in blue and orange, singling David Wright and Jason Bay home. Andres Torres also scored on the play due to an error, making the score 5-3.

Jeremy Hefner pitched admirably for the Amazins', ultimately taking the no-decision. The youngster scattered six hits in as many innings, surrendering two runs in the process.

Mets At Marlins Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Mets will look to win their sixth out of seven, as they make a play for third place in the National League East.

They'll look to Jeremy Hefner for a second straight stellar outing, after he pitched eight innings and allowed one run on Sunday.

He'll face off against Josh Johnson, who really struggled in his last outing, surrendering ten hits and six earned runs in just three innings of work. The big righty hasn't won a game since Aug. 3.

The Mets' pitching is the primary cause of their recent hot streak. Cy Young hopeful R.A. Dickey has been masterful, but Jon Niese, Matt Harvey, and Jeremy Hefner also deserve credit.

Meanwhile, New York's offense continues to struggle, as they've scored more than three runs just once in their last 13 games. The Mets won last night, despite mustering only four hits.

Saturday's game is scheduled for 7:10 PM, and can be found on SNY.

Mets 3, Marlins 0: R.A. Dickey Dazzles In Complete Game Shutout

The New York Mets breezed to a 3-0 win over the Marlins on Friday night, opening the series in Miami with a game that lasted just over two hours. R.A. Dickey went the distance for the Mets, giving up just five hits for the shutout victory. He struck out seven on his way to a league-leading 17th win of the season. Dickey had the knuckleball dancing to perfection, mixing up the Fish and notching his fifth complete game and third shutout of this miraculous season.

Nate Eovaldi wasn't exactly a gas can on the other side for the Marlins, but he could not match Dickey. The Mets scored three runs on just four hits against Eovaldi, but it would be more than enough. Ike Davis was responsible for knocking in all three runs. The first came on a sac fly that scored Ruben Tejada. Davis would then get his first hit of the night in the seventh, and this one would leave the yard. The two-run homer pushed the lead to 3-0, where it would remain as Dickey sealed up the final three innings.

Jeremy Hefner will take the ball for New York on Saturday and try to clinch the series against Josh Johnson.
