New York Mets Beat Marlins for Series Sweep in Reyes Return

April 26 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Mets scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins and a three-game series sweep, spoiling Jose Reyes’s return to Citi Field after leaving the franchise as a free agent in December.

With the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, Mets’ pinch hitter Justin Turner worked a 13-pitch at-bat against Miami closer Heath Bell, drawing a walk to tie the game. With two outs, Kirk Nieuwenhuis singled over the head of Giancarlo Stanton in right field to win the game.

Jonathon Niese pitched seven innings for the Mets (11-8), allowing two earned runs on four hits while striking out six without a walk. Ricky Nolasco also pitched seven innings for Miami (7-11), giving up an earned run on five hits, with five strikeouts and a walk.

Reyes, the shortstop who played his first nine Major League Baseball seasons with the Mets, is averaging .205 with five doubles and two runs batted in following an 0-for-4 afternoon.

Bell (0-3), who threw 46 pitches and had his third blown save of the year, took the loss. Ramon Martinez (2-1) pitched two innings for the victory.
