The Good, The Bad, and The Extra Marlins Recap: Miami Marlins vs New York Mets 9/15/13

For the last game of the season series between the Mets and the Marlins could we end the series with a W? Welcome to this edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Extra. Quick recap– The Good: We took the season series from the Mets; The Bad: We Lost; and The Extra: It was a 12 inning game. So let’s see how this game turned out.

The Good:

The Marlins posted a winning record this year against the Mets, going 11-8! This is another nice bright side to this year season.  Another good thing in this game was Tom Koehler, who went 8 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 H, and 5 Ks. It was a good day for Koehler, but was it a good day for the Marlins?

The Bad:

We lost to the Mets 1-0; who also took the series 3-1. Let’s see how the Mets pulled off the victory.

The Extra:

This game went 12 innings, because the Marlins just couldn’t score a run.  We went 0-12 with runners in scoring position, and left 11 runners on base. With no offense the Marlins could not help the good pitching that they had; something had to give and the Mets took advantage of it.

Our season is done with the Mets and what a season it was with them. Good luck to the Mets in the off season, and may they give us the same challenge next year. Until the next time as always: Let’s Go Marlins!

    What was the point of this comment? Pescado fans focus on why the Marlinos lost. Have you ever thought about giving credit to the other guy, Gee, who also pitched good enough to win? I heard no mention of him in your message. Zero for 12 with men in scoring position you say. Is it more about an inept offense, bad luck or just better pitching? I am tired about outright bias and for once would ask what’s wrong with looking at the facts. Until next year, Let’s go Metzies!
