Marlins Win On Mets Error

NEW YORK (AP) – Rookie second baseman Justin Turner committed a crucial throwing error in the ninth inning, allowing the Florida Marlins to score two runs and rally past the New York Mets 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Omar Infante hit a pair of solo shots for Florida, giving him three homers this season, but star shortstop Hanley Ramirez left the game in pain after spraining his left shoulder while diving for a ball in the outfield. He is day to day.

Jose Reyes homered and Chris Capuano pitched six effective innings for the Mets, who have lost four straight following a five-game winning streak.

New York led 3-2 entering the ninth, but Jason Isringhausen quickly got in trouble with a leadoff walk to Logan Morrison.
