Miami Marlins starter Tom Koehler could have plenty of support in what figures to be a sparse Citi Field crowd Sunday as he tries to end his second seven-start winless run of 2013.
Two full games, plus two more innings. A total of 561 pitches. And when it was finally (FINALLY!) over, the worst team in baseball had its 17th win of the season.
The Miami Marlins sure worked hard for this one.
Marlon Byrd grounded a two-run single just inside third base in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the New York Mets a 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Jose Reyes extended his hitting streak to a career-high 25 games with an infield single that set up Miami’s big inning, and the Marlins extended the New York Mets’ home losing skid to a month with a 4-2 win Tuesday night.
