Catcher John Buck was one of the many overpaid free agents the Miami Marlins brought in last season only to send them away in less than a year. Tuesday, Buck made them pay with a two-run, 10th inning hit to lift the New York Mets to a 4-2 victory over the Fish.
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.
Matt Harvey didn’t mind that it felt more like he was pitching in New York than in Florida.
Casey Coleman had a career-high seven strikeouts in 5 2-3 shutout innings Thursday, and the Chicago Cubs completed a two-game series sweep by beating the Florida Marlins 5-1.
