The New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins, 5-1, on Wednesday for their second win against Ozzie Guillen's squad in as many nights. The Mets scored two runs in the sixth inning and three runs in the eighth for the win. Once again, the Marlins' offense never got going, with just six hits on the night.
Miami took a brief 1-0 lead in the fifth inning on a Omar Infante home run to left field. R.A. Dickey started on the mound for the Mets, and was taken yard on just his second hit against for the game. He played through seven innings, giving up three hits and just one earned run with seven strikeouts.
Mark Buehrle started seven innings for the Marlins. He gave the lead back to the Mets in the sixth on a two-run home run by David Wright that also scored Daniel Murphy. Mike Dunn came in for Buehrle in the eighth but lasted just five batters. He was credited with two earned runs after giving up a double to Ruben Tejada, followed by an intentional walk on Wright and a single to Lucas Duda to extend the Mets' lead to 3-1.
Ryan Webb gave up a double to Mike Baxter, scoring Wright and Duda to cap scoring for the game. Jose Reyes struggled once again from the plate, going 1-for-4 after a 0-for-4 performance in the leadoff spot Tuesday. Jon Rauch, Bobby Parnell, Tim Byrdak and Manny Acosta gave up three hits in two innings of relief for Dickey.
