Marlins Vs. Mets Recap: Miami Takes Series Opener 4-2 As Giancarlo Stanton Returns With RBI

After a rough weekend in Washington, the Miami Marlins headed north to Citi Field for a three-game set with the Mets. And Ozzie Guillen's club opened their series in New York with a 4-2 victory. Wade LeBlanc got a spot start for the Fish and gave up just one run in four innings before handing things over to an array of bullpen arms. Carlos Zambrano was credited with the win, pitching 1.1 scoreless innings as the second of five relievers used by Guillen. Steve Cishek came on in the ninth and struck out two of three batters faced to earn his seventh save of the season.

Jose Reyes extended his hitting streak to 25 games during a big fourth-inning rally for the Fish. Miami put a four-spot up on the board against Jonathon Niese and that would be enough to clinch the win. Reyes reach on an infield single to put men on first and second for Carlos Lee, and the slugger brought home Justin Ruggiano from second with a single to left.

Giancarlo Stanton, who was just activated off the DL, knocked in Reyes with a sacrifice fly to centerfield that pushed the lead to 2-0. A John Buck double rounded out the rally, as he ripped one to right to score Lee and Austin Kearns. The four-run rally featured five hits in the inning and it would give the bullpen a nice cushion to work with to close the door.
