Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Donovan Solano drove home the game-winning run
with a single in the bottom of the 11th, as the Miami Marlins defeated the New
York Mets, 4-3, on Tuesday.
Jose Reyes tripled to leadoff the inning and Colin McHugh (0-4) intentionally
walked Giancarlo Stanton and Carlos Lee before Solano stroked a base hit up
Chad Gaudin (4-2) pitched a perfect top of the 11th to pick up the victory for
the Marlins, who will go for the series sweep in Wednesday's season finale.
Adam Greenberg, who got his first major league at-bat since July 9, 2005,
struck out on three pitches. The Marlins signed the 31-year-old to a one-day
contract earlier on Tuesday.
Former Marlins pitcher Valerio De Los Santos hit Greenberg in the head during
his major league debut with the Chicago Cubs over seven years ago. The
incident derailed his career, as he suffered from vertigo and vision problems
for some time thereafter.
Scott Hairston and David Wright drove in a run apiece for the Mets, who have
lost four in a row on the heels of a three-game winning streak.
