Marlins top Mets 7-3, take series from NL East leaders
MIAMI (AP) -- Giancarlo Stanton homered and drove in three runs, Ichiro Suzuki added a three-run homer in the eighth to blow the game open and the Miami Marlins topped the New York Mets 7-3 on Wednesday night.
Dee Gordon had two hits and his sacrifice fly in the seventh put the Marlins ahead for good, adding to a night where he raised his average to .409. Ichiro's first home run since July 25 -- his second in his last 487 at-bats -- capped the scoring as Miami took two out of three from the NL East leaders.
Sam Dyson (1-0) worked two perfect innings of relief after starter Mat Latos left in the fifth with a left hamstring strain.
Colon (4-1) failed in his bid to be the majors' first five-game winner in 2015, allowing nine hits and four runs in 6 2-3 innings.
