Mets At Marlins Final Score: Mets Lose 6-5 In The Ninth

The New York Mets staged a late comeback Friday night before losing the lead in the bottom of the ninth, ultimately losing 6-5. They spent most of the game trailing the Miami Marlins before scoring one run in the seventh inning and adding three in the eighth. Kirk Nieuwenhuis played a key role, pinch hitting for Scott Hairston scoring David Wright on a double to deep right to start the scoring in the eigth. Wright had a productive night, going 3-4 with two singles and a double.

The bottom of the ninth would be where things fell apart, with Giancarlo Stanton leading off with a double off Frank Francisco and advancing to third on a fly out by Gaby Sanchez. The tying run stood 90 feet away from home as Francisco faced Emilio Bonifacio, who singled to right to tie the game. Bonifacio stole second to move into scoring position, and a pinch hitting Greg Dobbs won things for the Marlins with a single.

Johan Santana threw six inning for the Mets, striking out seven and giving up three earned runs. Heath Bell gets the win for the Marlins, his first of the year.
