Reeling Mets Edged By Marlins
Juan Pierre scored standing up on a wild pitch with none out in the ninth, and the Miami Marlins came from behind in the final inning for the second consecutive game to beat the reeling New York Mets 2-1 Tuesday night.
The Mets have lost a season-worst six games in a row. They were beaten Monday when Miami scored twice in the 15th inning to win 4-3.
New York’s Jeremy Hefner (0-3) took a 1-0 lead and a three-hitter into the ninth but couldn’t get another out.
Chris Coghlan singled to start the inning and advanced on a passed ball. When Juan Pierre bunted, Coghlan beat catcher Anthony Recker’s throw to third, although the Mets argued that Coghlan overslid the bag.
