Final Score: Mets 4, Marlins 3 — 90 wins? How about 100?

Mike Stobe

Curtis Granderson's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Mets a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over the Marlins. The Mets have won three games in a row and five of their last six.

Curtis Granderson's game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning completed a come-from-behind win for the Mets that put our heroes' record at 13-10. The Mets have won three games in a row and five of their last six. Pretty damn good!

The Metsies entered the ninth down 3-2 with tough Marlins closer Steve Cishek entering the game. The Mets got the best of Cishek, though, starting with a bloop single by Lucas Duda. Travis d'Arnaud then sacrifice bunted Duda to second base (note: questionable bunt call by Terry Collins). After Bobby Abreu lined out, Omar Quintanilla stepped to the plate. The count ran to 2-2 and things were looking grim. However, Q shocked us all by hitting a game-tying RBI single to plate Duda.

Next up was pinch hitter Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who ripped a double to the gap in left center field. If not for a great play by Marlins center fielder Marcell Ozuna to cut the ball off, Quintanilla probably would have scored. Instead, he pulled up at third base. No bother: Granderson's single meant Q could jog home for the game-winning run.

Lost in the ninth inning theatrics was a strong start by Zack Wheeler, who struck out ten(!), walked three, and gave up one run in six innings. Wheeler got out of a first-and-third jam in the sixth inning when he struck out two batters in a row to end the frame. Gonzalez Germen gave up back-to-back solo home runs in the eighth inning that temporarily gave the Marlins the lead. He was due to give up some dingers; he had allowed just two in 47.2 career MLB innings. That's fewer than expected for a fly-ball pitcher like Germen.

The Mets' other two runs came on a David Wright RBI single and Daniel Murphy RBI double, both coming in the third inning.
