Morse’s single in 8th lifts Marlins to 4-3 win over Mets
MIAMI (AP) -- Michael Morse hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning that sent the Miami Marlins to a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night.
It was the Marlins' first win against the Mets this season in six tries. Miami has won six of seven overall.
Steve Cishek, who blew a save in Monday's 3-1 loss to New York by allowing a three-run homer to Daniel Murphy in the ninth, walked leadoff hitter Curtis Granderson before earning his second save of the year in four opportunities.
Bryan Morris (3-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win.
Juan Lagares hit a three-run double and Murphy had three hits for the Mets (15-6), who lost for only the third time in 16 games.
