Recap


Marlins 6, Mets 5: Greg Dobbs singled home Emilio Bonifacio to cap a two-run rally in the bottom of the ninth, sending Florida to its ninth victory in 10 games and ending New York’s five-game winning streak.

Dobbs delivered a looping single to right field off New York closer Frank Francisco (1-2), easily scoring the speedy Bonifacio.

Miami led 3-0 early, fell behind 5-3 in the eighth, then pulled within 5-4 in the eighth on Omar Infante’s double.

Francisco gave up a double to Giancarlo Stanton to lead off the ninth. After Gaby Sanchez advanced Stanton on a sacrifice fly, Bonifacio singled through a drawn-in infield to tie the score at 5-5.

Bonifacio stole his 17th base of the season to move into scoring position. John Buck struck out to set the stage for Dobbs' heroics.

Heath Bell (1-3), recently demoted as Miami’s closer, got the victory.

Trailing 3-2 entering the eighth, New York tied the game on Kirk Nieuwenhuis’ double to right, scoring David Wright. Mike Baxter followed with the go-ahead double off Edward Mujica, giving the Mets a 5-3 advantage.

The Marlins jumped on New York starter Johan Santana in the first, scoring three times. Austin Kearns delivered the big hit, a two-run homer to left to put Miami ahead 3-0.

Santana settled down after that, shutting out the Marlins the next five innings. The lefthander gave up six hits in six innings, with no walks and seven strikeouts.
