New York Mets
The Miami Marlins needed extras to beat the New York Mets again Sunday, but only 10 innings instead of 20.
After continuing their woes against the lowly Miami Marlins, the New York Mets are hoping a healthier Jonathon Niese can provide them the spark they need.
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.
After the Miami Marlins surprisingly swept the New York Mets last weekend, Tropical Storm Andrea could wash out the teams’ meeting Friday night at Citi Field and a scheduled matchup of two of the best young pitchers in baseball.
Cole Hamels had a season-high 11 strikeouts in seven dominant innings, Domonic Brown hit another homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 6-1 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep and even their record for the first time since they were 6-6.
The Philadelphia Phillies have been scoring at a solid pace during their winning streak that has brought them to within a victory of reaching .500 for the first time since April.
The Miami Marlins are on the verge of their longest win streak of the season but could have a formidable challenge on their hands.
Marcell Ozuna drove in four runs and Greg Dobbs hit a three-run homer to help the Miami Marlins complete a three-game sweep over the New York Mets with an 11-6 win on Sunday.
One-third of the Miami Marlins’ victories have come against the New York Mets.
The Miami Marlins continue their pursuit of a dubious place in the annals of baseball history as they continue to lose games at a clip not seen since the worst team of the modern era of baseball, the 1962 New York Mets.
