Mets Vs. Marlins: New York Falls 13-0

Gone are the New York Mets of the season's first half, a team blowing past expectations and tantalizing fans with possibilities that seemed absurd in March. The Mets lost their third game in a row on Wednesday night, dropping a one-sided affair to the visiting Miami Marlins by a final score of 13-0.

Miami used the long ball to jump out to an early lead. Former Met Jose Reyes hit a solo shot in the first with two outs that extended his hitting streak to 26 games. Giancarlo Stanton added to the damage with a two-run homer after Chris Young walked Carlos Lee. Things got worse in the fifth inning. Lee drove in two with a single to shallow left field, and Stanton belted his second homer of the night to drive home Lee and make it a 7-0 game.

Young, who got the loss, failed to make it out of the fifth inning, giving way to Ramon Ramirez to pick up the last two outs.

Garrett Olson was tagged for another four runs in the eighth inning.

The Mets get one more go at the Marlins on Thursday at 12:10 p.m.
