Flushing, NY (Aug 3) – The New York Mets were defeated by the Florida Marlins by the score of 4-3 on Tuesday night. Chris Capuano made the start and pitched well, Jason Isringhausen for the second night in a row blew the save and he took the loss. The offense continues to struggle at home as well as the Mets as a whole.

Manny Acosta pitched an inning giving up a hit and Isringhausen pitched an inning giving up a hit and two runs with one of them being earned. He walked one and struck out one, Isringhausen saw his record drop to 2-2.

Lucas Duda had a hit and an RBI, Ronny Paulino had a walk and Capuano had a hit. Turner had a double Reyes had a homerun. The Mets were 0-6 with runners in scoring position and they left six men on base. Pagan had a stolen base and Hairston was caught stealing. Turner made a throwing error and Nickeas had a passed ball.
In the first inning, the Marlins took a 1-0 lead on a solo homerun by Omar Infante. In the bottom of the third inning, Reyes hit a solo homerun to tie the game at one. In the fifth inning, Infante hit another solo homerun to make it 2-1 Marlins. Wright hit a groundout in the fifth inning to tie the game at two. In the sixth inning, Duda hit a sacrifice fly to make it 3-2 Mets. The Marlins scored and won the game in the ninth on an error. Bryan Peterson reached on a throwing error by Turner allowing two runs to score and making it a 4-3 game and the Marlins would win by that score.
The Mets are back at the 500 mark after losing four in a row. The Mets are owned by the Marlins, they never seem to beat them. The Mets also are not very good at Citi Field. They have played very well on the road this season but cannot get it together at home. The Mets in the last three nights have had very painful losses. It seems that they always find a new way to lose and they need to end that soon.
