Mets Vs. Marlins final score: Miami topples New York, 3-2

The Miami Marlins took care of business in the opener of their three-game series against the New York Mets on Monday night, winning 3-2 at Marlins Park.

After falling behind 2-0, the Marlins began their rally in the sixth inning with a home run off the hot bat of Giancarlo Stanton, his 37th of the year. In the bottom of the seventh, Miami tied the affair on a Jose Reyes sacrifice fly before plating the eventual game-winning tally with a Rob Blantly RBI double.

Wade LeBlanc started the contest and earned a no-decision. The southpaw lasted five innings and allowed just one unearned runs on seven hits.

Heath Bell earned his fourth win of the season by hurling a shutout eighth inning.

Jeurys Familia toed the rubber for New York but only threw four innings despite surrendering one hit. Familia was undone with wildness, walking six on the night.

Gorkys Hernandez was a thorn in the Mets' side, collecting hits in all three at-bats along with a walk.
