Mets-Marlins Score: Duda's Blast Ties Game In 9th, But Stanton Wins It In 10th WIth Grand Slam, 7-3

Flushing, NY (Sports Network) – Mike Stanton hit a grand slam in the top of the 10th inning Monday to give the Marlins a 7-3 win over the Mets in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Florida used three straight singles from Gaby Sanchez, Hanley Ramirez and DeWayne Wise to load the bases, and Stanton cracked a 3-2 cutter from Jason Isringhausen over the left field wall for his second career grand slam.

Omar Infante collected three hits, including a triple, and Sanchez added a pair of RBI for the Marlins, who have won seven of their last nine games.

Leo Nunez (1-2) gave up the lead in the ninth, but picked up the win courtesy of Stanton’s moonshot. He also absorbed his fourth blown save of the season

Isringhausen (2-1) was tagged with the loss for the Mets, who have lost three consecutive games.

Lucas Duda and Jason Bay smacked home runs for New York.
