Mets Blow 9th Inning Lead in Loss to Marlins

Greg Dobbs’ single with two outs in the ninth inning scored Emilio Bonifacio from second base with the winning run Friday night, and the Miami Marlins rallied to end the New York Mets’ five-game winning streak with a 6-5 victory.

The Marlins scored twice in the ninth off Frank Francisco to win for the ninth time in 10 games. They were coming off an 8-1 trip, the best in franchise history.

The Mets overcame an early 3-0 deficit and entered the ninth on the verge of their fourth consecutive comeback win.

The Marlins trailed 5-4 when Giancarlo Stanton led off the ninth with a double off Francisco (1-2). Stanton scored on a single by Emilio Bonifacio, who stole second, and Dobbs singled on the first pitch.
