Recap: Miami vs. NY Mets

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Kelly Shoppach knocked in the go-ahead run with a single to highlight a four-run ninth inning, as the New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins, 5-3, in the middle test of a three-game set.

With runners on first and second Lucas Duda ripped a single to center to score Daniel Murphy.

After Mike Baxter popped out, Andres Torres walked to load the bases. Shoppach delivered a base hit up the middle. Marlins center fielder Justin Ruggiano charged the ball to attempt a throw home, but the ball bounced off the heel of his glove and rolled past him, allowing all three runners to score.

Frank Francisco pitched a perfect ninth to nail down the win for New York. It was his 23rd save of the year and sealed New York's sixth win in seven games.

Ramon Ramirez (3-3) earned the victory, despite giving up a run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Josh Johnson worked eight strong innings, allowing just one run on three hits while striking out four, but Steve Cishek (4-2) couldn't close the door in the ninth.

The Marlins got on the board in the third when Bryan Peterson doubled to score Donovan Solano.

New York tied the game in the fifth when Baxter scored on a Josh Thole groundout. Baxter broke up Johnson's no-hit bid with a leadoff double to left- center field then moved to third when Torres grounded out.

Miami took the lead once again in the sixth when Jose Reyes scored on Giancarlo Stanton's infield single. Back-to-back base hits from Reyes and Carlos Lee put runners on the corners before Stanton cued one down the first base line and beat Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner to the bag.

The Marlins added another run in the eighth when Lee singled home Reyes.
