Marlins reach the .500 mark with win

The Florida Marlins are back to .500 after their 4-3 comeback victory over the New York Mets Tuesday. It was another Marlins patented come from behind victories as they did it in the top of the ninth inning as Justin Turner’s error led to two Florida runs for the win.

Turner turned what could have been an inning-ending double play into go-ahead runs for Florida. Bryan Petersen’s ground ball to Turner allowed Logan Morrison and Mike Cameron to both score and to move Petersen to third.

In the bottom of the ninth, closer Leo Nunez replaced reliever Steve Cishek and closed down the door for his 31st save of the season with Cishek moving to 2-1.

Florida was also lead by Omar Infante’s two home runs. They were both solo shots off of Mets’ starter Chris Capuano.

With the win, the Marlins are now tied for third in the NL East with the Mets and will try to move above them in the division Wednesday (if it doesn’t rain). Clay Hensley (1-3, 3.09 ERA) will take on the hot Dillon Gee (10-3, 3.69 ERA).

    I only have a couple of comments:

    1. Peterson didn’t go to 3rd on the error in the 9th, John Buck did.
    2. Nunez replaced Randy Choate, not Cishek. Choate walked the lead off hitter in the 9th after HE relieved Cishek.
    3. Florida was LED by Infante’s HR’s, not lead. Grammer is fun, learn it, love it, use it!
    4. victories in the 1st paragraph should be victory as the sentence does not imply anything but singular. Had you said “it was another ONE OF the Florida Marlins patented come from behind victories” that would have worked.
