Final score: Marlins 4, Mets 3 — Let's check out for Kevin

While SNY paid tribute to Kevin Burkhardt, the Mets did little against Henderson Alvarez and the Miami bullpen as they dropped their last meeting of the year against the Marlins.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

On (unofficial) Kevin Burkhardt Night at Citi Field, the Marlins scored twice in the first in odd fashion, one run coming in on a wild pitch that was actually an HBP (long story) and a swinging bunt. They added to their lead with a two-out walk that came around to score in the second. After squandering many chances in the first few innings, the Mets finally got on the board with a two-out, two-run single by Lucas Duda in fifth, but Miami stretched their lead on an RBI double by Christian Yelich in the seventh. New York scraped together a run without benefit of a hit in the eighth but nought else against the Miami bullpen.

Full recap to come.
