Coming off the excitement of a Subway Series sweep, the Mets' offense put up a stinker as they fell to the Marlins 5-1 in Miami. The defeat snapped their season best five game winning streak. Shaun Marcum got the start for the Mets and pitched well over the first six innings before it all unraveled in the seventh.
Both teams traded zeroes through the first six innings as Marcum and Jacob Turner both managed to easily shut down each lineup. In the bottom of the seventh, things caved in on Marcum as a double and a soft single put runners on the corners with nobody out. After a strikeout, Ed Lucas blooped a hit into right center to plate the first run and Jeff Mathis added another run with a sacrifice fly. With two outs, pinch hitter Jordan Brown drilled a double into the right center field gap, sticking a fork in Marcum as well as the Mets' chances to win.
