Mets Fall to Marlins For 8th Straight Home Loss
Jose Reyes extended his hitting streak to a career-high 25 games with an infield single that set up Miami’s big inning, and the Marlins extended the New York Mets’ home losing skid to a month with a 4-2 win Tuesday night.
Booed again at Citi Field, Reyes beat out a trickler that helped the Marlins score four times in the fourth. The former Mets All-Star shortstop has the longest hitting string in the majors this year.
Giancarlo Stanton hit a sacrifice fly after being activated from the disabled list for the Marlins.
On the day the Mets unveiled the logo for the 2013 All-Star game at Citi Field and attached the insignia to the center-field scoreboard, they lost their eighth in a row at home. Their previous win in the park came July 7 against the Cubs.
