On Tuesday night the New York Mets suffered a 7-6 loss against the Florida Marlins in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Tuesday’s game was the second game of a three game series, and the mets were looking for a win after Monday night when they suffered a more painful loss ending with a score of 10-3.
Jason Bay, in his first season with the Mets, hit a fly ball in the top of the first inning in order to bring in Angel Pagan. Pagan scored the first run of the game for the Mets, and during the top of the third inning the Mets were able to score two more runs making the score 3-0.
However, the Marlins put an end to their lead by scoring a total of six runs in the bottom of the third. The fourth, fifth, and sixth innings were scoreless until the Mets got another run in the top of the seventh. Finally in the top of the ninth inning the Mets rallied, and were able to put two more points on the board tying the score 6-6.
Despite the great fight by the New York Mets in the ninth inning, the Marlins proved to be unstoppable for the second night in a row. Dan Uggla hit a single, which allowed Jorge Cantu to score another one for the Marlins.
The Marlins may have won on Monday and Tuesday, but the New York Mets will have a chance to redeem themselves. The Mets will play their next and final game in this three game series against the Florida Marlins on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.
