It wasn't pretty, but the New York Mets avoided a five-game losing streak by defeating the Miami Marlins 2-1 at Citi Field. Kevin Plawecki provided the scoring for the Amazin's driving in a two-RBI single in the seventh inning and Jeurys Familia secured a five-out save to secure the victory.
Spot-starter Logan Verrett tossed six scoreless innings and the bullpen combination of Jim Henderson, Hansel Robles, Jerry Blevins and Familia surrendered just four hits and one run over the final three innings.
Yoenis Cespedes had a scary moment when he leapt into the left field stands after a flyball and collided with fans. Trainer Ray Ramirez made his way out to the Cuban outfielder, who appeared shaken after the incident, but remained in the game.
In his next at-bat, Cespedes took a pitch off his elbow and dodged another potential injury as he angrily trotted down the first base line.
