Final Score: Miami Marlins: 4 New York Mets: 2
Mets Drop Series Opener to Marlins
The return home for the Mets from an 11 game road trip did not go as hoped, as the Mets fell to the Marlins 4-2. The loss makes it eight home defeats in a row, leaving the Mets winless at Citi Field since the All-Star break. The Mets are falling further below .500 and after coming into the second half with high expectations now sit only three games ahead of the cellar in the National League East division.
