Marlins Drop Series to Mets

The Mets won Sunday's series finale 3-0 to take two of three from the Marlins

The Miami Marlins were beaten 3-0 by the New York Mets on Sunday at Marlins Park.

With the loss, Miami dropped the series to New York and now only had a half-game edge in the Wild-Card race. The Mets had entered the series 1.5 games behind the Marlins for the final playoff spot in the National League.

Jose Urena made the start for Miami and gave his team a chance to win. The right-hander lasted six innings in which he allowed one run on four hits while walking none. Urena has had two solid starts in a row since returning from New Orleans.

Kyle Barraclough had a tough outing in relief. The usually dependable reliever allowed a pair of runs in his 0.2 innings of work. This extended a one-run deficit into a three-run one for Miami.

Despite Miami's lack of runs, Martin Prado still had a solid day. The third baseman was 3-3 and also walked in the loss.

The Marlins were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base. Miami had its chances to score but could not find the big hit all game long.

Jarred Cosart will be recalled from AAA to start on Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies.
