After giving up their early lead, the Miami Marlins took advantage of the New York Mets’ miscues late. Giancarlo Stanton hit his 34th home run and the Marlins scored three runs in the eighth inning to beat the Mets 9-6 on Monday. ”It was back and forth, a few different lead changes there, we kept pushing and that was the biggest key to finish it off,” Stanton said. Miami capitalized on some wildness by Mets reliever Jeurys Familia (2-4) in the eighth.

Alex Wood finally found his way onto the right side of a 1-0 game. The Braves left-hander, who lost 1-0 decisions earlier this season against the Philadelphia Phillies and the Marlins, pitched eight scoreless innings and matched his career high with 12 strikeouts Sunday in Atlanta’s 1-0 win over Miami. A second-inning homer by catcher Evan Gattis produced the game’s only run. Wood (10-10) retired the last eight men he faced before turning the game over to closer Craig Kimbrel, who pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 41st save.

Mets starter Dillon Gee called it the hottest game he’s pitched in all year. Anthony Recker snapped a sixth-inning tie with a three-run homer in a rare start, and the Mets held off Philadelphia 6-5 Sunday to avoid dropping into last place. ”Anytime you get a chance to play, you just want to contribute,” Recker said. ”We’ve got a few guys on the bench that haven’t been seeing a lot of time, so when we get our chance we really want to be able to do our part.” Wilmer Flores had three hits and made two sparkling defensive plays at shortstop in the final two innings to help New York hang on.

Jake Peavy appreciated the effort of his defense. The Giants infielders were just as happy about his pitching. Peavy took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and finished with a one-hitter over 7 2-3 innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Saturday night. ”Any time you can beat a team in first place you feel good about what you’re doing.” The right-hander got the first out of the eighth on a nice backhand grab by third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

Right-hander Jerome Williams continued his renaissance with Philadelphia by carrying a one-hitter into the seventh inning Saturday night and the Phillies busted out for five runs in the sixth inning of a 7-2 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field. The Phillies (62-73) have won seven of their last 10 to move within a half-game of the Mets (63-73) for fourth place in the National League East. The Phillies were last in fourth place on June 27, the same day the Mets were last in last place. The Mets have lost eight of 12.

Zack Greinke is unbeaten against the NL West this year and has never lost to the San Diego Padres. His mound opponent, Ian Kennedy, hasn’t beaten the Los Angeles Dodgers over the last two seasons. The visiting Dodgers have to like their chances of evening this three-game set Saturday night behind Greinke, whose teams are 6-0 in his outings against the Padres. The right-hander took advantage of two extra days of rest to limit the New York Mets to four runs in seven innings last Saturday in a 7-4 win.

Jacob deGrom pitched seven crisp innings and the Mets scored the tiebreaking runs when left fielder Grady Sizemore dropped an easy pop fly, handing New York a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night. Eric Campbell stole home on a double steal, and Travis d’Arnaud hit an RBI single to help the Mets stay out of the NL East cellar with their 12th victory in 17 games against Philadelphia this year. Cody Asche had a run-scoring single for the Phillies, who had won four straight and six of seven. A victory in the series opener would have pushed last-place Philadelphia past New York, but Sizemore’s two-out error with the bases loaded in the seventh cost them.
