Mets Settle Marlins

     The Miami Marlins failed to sweep the New York Mets for the first time in Citi Field since 2009 as they lost 2-1 on Wednesday. The Fish completed their five-game road trip with a 3-2 record.
     It was not until the seventh inning when one of the clubs scored. Miami(3-4) left the bases loaded with none out at the top of the frame as reliever Jerry Blevins pitched the last three outs. New York(3-5) capitalized on the situation in the bottom of the seventh against Dustin McGowan.
     Wilmer Flores began with a base hit to center field and moved to third on a single to right field by Asdrubal Cabrera. After Juan Lagares grounded out to the pitcher, Kevin Plawecki bashed a single into left field to drive in Flores and Cabrera for a Mets 2-0 lead.
     In the eighth inning, Christian Yelich picked up a one-out single into center field off Blevins. Jeurys Familia entered the game for the Mets to pitch and Giancarlo Stanton flied out to center. Martin Prado singled to left field then Justin Bour hit an opposite-field single into left and Yelich scored to make it 2-1.
