Miami Marlins: Jose Reyes’ Hitting Streak Ends In Loss To New York Mets
All of the momentum that the Miami Marlins were building in the four-game series against their division rival New York Mets was lost Thursday afternoon. Potential NL Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey completely shut down the Marlins and pitched the Mets to a 6-1 victory to improve to 15-3 on the season.
Dickey pitched all nine innings of the ball game striking out 10 Marlins batters. Dickey did not walk anybody in the game either. He threw 118 pitched, 84 of them for strikes.
The Marlins sent out Josh Johnson to the mound put it gave the team a negative result. In Johnson’s six innings of work, he allowed three earned runs on eight hits. He struck out four batters and gave up a solo home run to Andres Torres. Torres also had a triple in the game as well.
The Marlins bats were not a big help either after putting up 13 runs the night before.
A Justin Ruggiano home run was the only run to cross the plate against Dickey. Ruggiano finished the day 2-for-4 as he had a single as well.
Jose Reyes was riding a 26-game hitting streaking coming to the afternoon but ended the day 0-for-4.
Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was given the day off to rest.
The Marlins are now 51-61 on the season and have the Los Angeles Dodgers coming into Miami Friday for a three game series. The team needs to get back to its winning ways and a series win against the Dodgers would be a huge boost.
