7,701: Mets come from behind to sweep Marlins with 7-6 win

Bring out the brooms

Jeff Francouer hit a three-run game-tying homer and Angel Pagan scored the winning run on a double play Sunday as the Mets completed a three-game sweep of the Florida Marlins with a 7-6 victory.

It was the Mets’ eighth straight home victory.

Mets’ starter Hisanori Takahashi took his no-hitter into the fourth inning, one the squad’s deeper outings, but gave it up on a Dan Uggla home run for the 7,701st Mets game with no no-no. Though Takahashi looked good early, he wound up giving up five runs on six hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings of work.

Pagan was 2-for-4 with two RBIs and Francoeur was 2-for-4 with his three RBIs coming off that single crack of the bat in the seventh inning.

Chris Carter also had an RBI with a pinch-hit single in the sixth.

With the game tied at six in the eighth and runners at first-and-third, Marlins Manager Fredi Gonzalez decided to play for the double play. Ike Davis complied, and Pagan was able to score what was to be the winning run.
