The New York Mets spotted the Florida Marlins 7 runs – a formula that seldom leads to a win – and the comeback fell short Sunday for a 10-8 loss.
The Marlins’ completion of their four-game sweep handed the Mets their fifth straight loss.
Mets’ starter Jonathon Niese lost his no-hitter in the first inning on a Gaby Sanchez single, advancing our NoNoHitters.com count to 7,682 New York Mets games with no no-no.
Niese threw just two innings before injuring a hamstring fielding a bunt, giving up five runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk.
Alex Cora and David Wright each had two RBIs for the Mets.
