Mets Lose To Marlins in Extra Innings

Flushing, NY (Sports Network) – Burke Badenhop accomplished a rare feat for a

reliever on Monday, picking up the win and knocking in the game-winner in the

11th to lift the Marlins over the Mets, 2-1, in a rain-soaked pitching duel.

A lucky bounce helped Badenhop (1-0) get out of a 10th-inning jam, and with a

thin bench, Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez let the reliever hit with runners

on first and second and two outs in the 11th.

In his 29th career plate appearance and second in the past two years, Badenhop

worked a full count on Ryota Igarashi (2-1) and laced a single up the middle

to plate Mike Stanton, who had tied the game with a home run in the seventh.

It was Florida’s only hit in 11 chances with runners in scoring position.

Not to be outdone, the Mets used pitcher Jon Niese as a pinch-hitter with two

outs in the final frame, and Niese laced one to left-center and legged out a

triple when Emilio Bonifacio couldn’t make the running grab.

Leo Nunez recovered, though, striking out Jose Reyes to notch his 15th save.
