Mets falter in the 7th

Off the highs of the Mets series against the New York Yankees, they traveled to Miami to face the Marlins.

Shaun Marcum, who dazzled before a national audience on Sunday, looked to do the same through 6 innings, getting out of a jam in the 5th inning when he got Jeff Mathis to ground into a double play with the bases loaded. 

But the 7th inning proved too much for Marcum. 

Derek Dietrich led off the inning with a double, and was able to move to 3rd on Marcell Ozuna's single.  After Chris Coghlan struck out, Ed Lucas broke a scoreless tie with a single to right, scoring Dietrich.  A Jeff Mathis sac-fly brought home Ozuna, then Jordan Brown chased Marcum from the game with his two-RBI double.

The damage was done, as the Mets left the inning 4-0, and would lose to the Miami Marlins 5-1 to end both the Mets five-game win streak and the Marlins nine-game losing skid.

The Mets failed to figure out Jacob Turner, who made his season debut after playing with New Orleans to start off the 2013 season.  Turner pitched 7 innings, striking out 3 and giving up 5 hits.
