The Mets lost to the Marlins for the second time in as many games, this time giving up nine runs and scoring just five. Jon Niese was bad once again, as he gave up five runs—one of which was unearned—in four innings on seven hits, two of which were home runs. He now has a 4.42 ERA and 4.69 FIP on the season.
After scoring first with a run in the bottom of the first but failing to capitalize on an opportunity to do much more, the Mets were down 5-1 until Curtis Granderson singled in a run and Ruben Tejada hit a bases-clearing triple to tie the game at five in the fourth. But the Mets did not score again, and the Marlins managed two runs against Hansel Robles in the seventh and two more against Alex Torres in the ninth.
