The Mets beat the Marlins in Miami this evening, something they've really struggled to do over, well, the last whole bunch of years. After scoring the first three runs of the game in the top of the third, the Mets soon found themselves trailing the Marlins.
Jeremy Hefner gave up three runs in the fourth inning, the last two of which scored on a would-be inning-ending ground ball that Omar Quintanilla booted with the bases loaded. Hefner gave up two more runs in the sixth inning to put the Mets behind by two, but the Mets came right back with three runs in the top of the seventh.
The Mets' bullpen kept the Marlins off the board for the rest of the game, though Bobby Parnell sure did make things interesting by allowing a couple of baserunners before getting Giancarlo Stanton to ground out to end the game.
