National League Preview from The Sports Network



Tuesday, April 30th (All times eastern)

New York Mets (10-14) at Miami Marlins (7-19), 7:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Jeremy Hefner (0-2, 5.14) Miami - Kevin Slowey (0-2, 2.43)

(Sports Network) - Tough-luck right-hander Kevin Slowey can make it two straight wins for the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night when they host the New York Mets in the second of three games at Marlins Park.

Slowey, a 13-game winner with the Minnesota Twins in 2010, is winless in 19 big-league outings since, including 14 with the Twins in 2011 and five more this season since signing with Miami in the offseason.

He's allowed three runs or less in each of five appearances with the Marlins, but has emerged with a pair of losses and three no-decisions for his trouble.

The Marlins are 1-4 in games he's pitched and have been outscored, 12-6.

Slowey lost his lone career start against New York after allowing five runs on six hits in six innings.

He's opposed by second-year righty Jeremy Hafner, who also makes a sixth attempt at a first win in 2013.

The 27-year-old was beaten in starts against the Marlins and Philadelphia while allowing 11 hits and six runs in nine innings on April 5 and 10, then gave up two runs in a one-inning relief outing on April 18 in Colorado.

Two starts since have yielded two no-decisions, first against Washington and then against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Hefner is 2-4 in 14 career road appearances with a 4.91 earned run average.

On Monday, Nick Green hit a game-winning sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 15th inning as the Marlins rallied for a 4-3 victory.

After the Mets plated a run in the top of the 15th, Greg Dobbs singled to center with one out in the bottom half. Justin Ruggiano walked and Rob Brantly poked a single to right to tie the game. Green, who finished with two hits, plated Ruggiano with a deep fly to left field for the difference-maker.

"We've lost a lot of one-run games, and those can be devastating to a team. These guys are resilient. They keep battling," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.

Reliever Jon Rauch (1-2) picked up the win after lasting three innings and allowing one run, while striking out five in the victory. Brantly finished 3- for-7 with an RBI and Green drove in two for the Marlins, who have won two straight for the first time since October 1-2 of 2012.

That was also the last time the Mets came to town.

Miami outfielder Giancarlo Stanton left the game in the 10th with a hamstring injury. He hit a slow-roller to the pitcher and tried to beat out the throw, but hit first base and was visibly in pain and fell to the ground.

John Buck had the game's only homer, a two-run blast, and Ruben Tejada hit a tie-breaking infield single in the top of the 15th for the Mets, who have lost a season-high five straight games.

Shaun Marcum (0-2) was dealt with the loss after working 1 2/3 innings in relief and allowing both crucial runs.

"We just can't drive in any runs," Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Bobby Parnell had a blown save, his second of the season, in the ninth.

The Mets won two of three games between the teams in an early April series and took 12 of 18 last season. The Marlins last won the season series in 2010.
