Notable performances:

Notes: The night in South Florida belonged to Gaby Sanchez of the Marlins. He had a great night, hitting two home runs and going 3 for 4 with four RBI. Omar Infante, Logan Morrison, and John Buck each had an RBI, leading the Marlins to score eight runs.

Chris Capuano, who started for the Mets was solid, but allowed four runs in the sixth inning on two home runs and an Infante triple. He left the game after six innings and just 90 pitches. Clay Hensley was better for the Marlins, allowing two runs on five hits, but leaving after five innings and 86 pitches. The only killer for him was a two-run single in the fifth by David Wright that put the Mets up 2-0. The Marline fought back, though, tagging the Met bullpen for four runs in just two innings on Gaby Sanchez’s second home run, and two run-scoring singles by Omar Infante and John Buck. Here is a summary of the Mets bullpen, whichh was nothing to rave about for the second straight night:

The Mets started to mount a comeback in the top of the ninth off Leo Nunez, with Lucas Duda hitting his first home run of the season and Jose Reyes hitting his first home run since coming off the DL.

Mike Cameron made a great catch in the outfield tonight for the Marlins. It was great to see Mike again. I loved him on the Mets. If he hadn’t collided with Beltran in that ugly accident a few years ago, his stay with the Mets would have been much more enjoyable and would have lasted much longer. The 38 year-old can still really fly in the outfield.

Next: at Marlins 1:10 start
