Mets Vs. Marlins, Game 3 Final Score: Ninth-Inning Rally Propels New York To Sweep

Rookie outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis' two-out, bases-load single to right field was the cap on a two-run ninth inning rally for the New York Mets who completed a three-game series sweep of the Miami Marlins on Thursday. The victory helped the Mets (11-8) earn their second sweep and third series win in the month of April.

New York entered the bottom of the ninth down 2-1, and rallied behind four walks from Marlins big-money closer Heath Bell. David Wright, Ike Davis, Josh Thole and Justin Turner each walked, respectfully, which allowed the score to be tied at 2-2. After Scott Hairston grounded out for the second out, Nieuwenhuis hit a 1-0 pitch over the head of a drawn-in Mike Stanton in right field.

Ramon Ramirez earned the win, as he tossed two-scoreless innings of relief. Ramirez came in for starting pitcher Jon Niese who tossed seven innings allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six.

Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-5 at the plate for the Mets, who as a team collected just six hits.

On Friday, New York travels West to take on the Colorado Rockies in a three-game set at Coors Field.

Mike Pelfrey Injury Update: Mets' Right-Hander Could See Dr. James Andrews, According To Reports

As former New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes get set to make his return at Citi Field Tuesday, his former squad is quickly dealing with some early-season roster troubles. The most critical dealing with right-handed pitcher Mike Pelfrey who was placed on the disable list with elbow swelling and is now considering seeing the dreaded Dr. James Andrews.

Now, its not official that Pelfrey is going to make a trip to see Andrews as the Mets are hoping rest will bring down the swelling and pain, however, it seems New York might be preparing for the worst.

In the meantime, Pelfrey's spot in the rotation will be taken over by Chris Schwinden, who's 2-2 with a 2.05 ERA with the Mets' Triple-A affiliate, Buffalo Bison, this season. Last season, Schwinden made four starts for the Mets, going 0-2 with a 4.71 ERA.

Mike Pelfrey Injury Update: Mets' Starter To Miss Next Start, Possibly More

As the New York Mets prepare for a three-game set with the Miami Marlins, the team received some bad news about starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey Tuesday as the right-hander will miss his next start due to elbow swelling. Pelfrey could miss more time if it's a ligament tear, which manager Sandy Alderson said it could be.

The Mets will replace him with Robert Carson, but only for a few days before Chris Schwinden is set to start for Pelfrey.

So far this season, Pelfrey has been one of the many early-season bright spots in the Mets' rotation as he's compiled a 2.29 ERA in 19 1/2-innings. New York went 2-1 in his three starts and allowed no home runs while he was on the mound.

Unfortunately, this is the second player Tuesday to go on the DL for the Mets. They placed outfielder Jason Bay on the DL earlier in the day.

Jason Bay Injury Update: New York Mets Place Bay On DL, Recall Zach Lutz

The New York Mets announced Tuesday that they have placed outfielder Jason Bay on the 15-day disabled list with a broken rib and recalled infielder Zach Lutz from Triple-A.

Bay injured himself Monday when he went all-out in a diving attempt to catch Gregor Blanco's rope to left field during the fourth inning of the Mets' 6-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Bay remained in the game for several innings, drawing a walk in the sixth frame, but left in the eighth inning after experiencing discomfort.

Said Bay: "Originally it felt like I jarred my shoulder a little bit. A few innings went on, I started having a little discomfort where I landed on my ribs there. I don't know much more about it."
