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 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?

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