Like yesterday, the Mets and Marlins went to extra innings this afternoon. This time, however, the Mets lost in the tenth inning instead of the twentieth, and they've now lost the last five games they've played against the Marlins.
Having taken a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the third, the Mets allowed Miami to score twice in the sixth and once in the eighth to tie the game. Bobby Parnell pitched a scoreless ninth, but he gave up a pair of singles in the tenth before a Daniel Murphy error allowed the Marlins to score the go-ahead run. With that, Robert Carson took over and allowed a sacrifice fly and a two-run home run. It was the eighth home run Carson has allowed in just eighteen innings of work this year.
Trailing 8-4 in the bottom of the inning, the Mets did not score.
