    National League Game Summary - New York at Miami



    (Monday, April 29th)

    Final Score: Miami 4, New York 3 (15 innings)

    Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Nick Green hit a game-winning sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 15th inning as the Miami Marlins rallied for a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets Monday in the opener of a three-game test.

    After the Mets plated a run in the top of the 15th, Greg Dobbs singled to center with one out in the bottom half. Justin Ruggiano walked and Rob Brantly poked a single to right to tie the game. Green, who finished with two hits, plated Ruggiano with a deep fly to left field for the difference-maker.

    "We've lost a lot of one-run games, and those can be devastating to a team. These guys are resilient. They keep battling," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.

    Reliever Jon Rauch (1-2) picked up the win after lasting three innings and allowing one run, while striking out five in the victory. Brantly finished 3- for-7 with an RBI and Green drove in two for the Marlins, who have won two straight for the first time since October 1-2 of 2012. That was also the last time the Mets came to town.

    Miami outfielder Giancarlo Stanton left the game in the 10th with a hamstring injury. He hit a slow-roller to the pitcher and tried to beat out the throw, but hit first base and was visibly in pain and fell to the ground.

    John Buck had the game's only homer, a two-run blast, and Ruben Tejada hit a tie-breaking infield single in the top of the 15th for the Mets, who have lost a season-high five straight games. Shaun Marcum (0-2) was dealt with the loss after working 1 2/3 innings in relief and allowing both crucial runs.

    "We just can't drive in any runs," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

    Bobby Parnell had a blown save, his second of the season, in the ninth.

    New York, which finished 1-for-18 with runners in scoring position, finally broke through in the top of the 15th. Lucas Duda doubled to the gap in right- center with one down and moved to third on a ground out. Ike Davis was intentionally walked before both he and Duda advanced one base on a wild pitch. Tejada then hit a chopping infield single in between third and short to score Duda and give the Mets a 3-2 advantage.

    Buck's fourth-inning, two-run homer stood as the difference for the visitors for the majority of the game. That was until the ninth, when Parnell served up a leadoff double to Ruggiano.

    Brantly followed with a bloop single to center to put runners on the corners before Green tied the game at 2-2 with a sac fly to center. Parnell, though, escaped the inning as Chris Coghlan grounded into a inning-ending double play.

    Mets starter Matt Harvey lasted 5 1/3 innings and gave up one run on seven hits while striking out seven. The righty was looking to become the third Mets starter in franchise history to go 5-0 in April, but ends the month with a no-decision in his last two starts.

    Miami starter Jose Fernandez lasted four innings and yielded two runs on three hits and three walks and also struck out four.

    In the fourth, Duda drew a walk to open up the frame and Buck followed with a blast that hit off the Marlins home run statue in deep center field and gave the Mets a 2-1 lead.

    It was Buck's ninth homer of the young season -- which is tied for the most in Mets history for the month -- and 25th RBI, one behind Jeff Kent's 1994 April team record.

    In the third, Juan Pierre smacked a leadoff single and advanced to third on Donovan Solano's liner up the middle. Stanton then grounded into a 4-6-3 double play that plated Pierre to make it 1-0.

    Game Notes

    New York's David Wright was held out of the starting lineup due to a stiff neck, but appeared as a pinch-hitter in the 13th and struck out ... Buck now shares the Mets' April home run record with Dave Kingman (1976) and Carlos Delgado (2006) ... Harvey has allowed 21 hits over 40 1/3 innings in six starts this season ... It was the longest Mets game since a 20-inning, 2-1 win on April 17, 2010 at St. Louis ... Game time: 5 hours, 31 minutes ... Dwight Gooden (1988) and Pedro Martinez (2006) are the only Mets starters to go 5-0 in April.
