Season series: Mets lead 7-3
The good news for the Marlins as Tuesday’s series opener at Citi Field was washed out was that the Chicago Cubs lost Tuesday, so Miami climbed to just a half-game back. The Cincinnati Reds are breathing down the necks of the Marlins, sitting just a game behind, although Miami has 2 games in hand on Cincinnati. The Arizona Diamondbacks won Tuesday, and are 1 1/2 games clear of the Marlins in the 2nd Wild Card spot.
Miami picked up 2 crucial wins in a 3-game set against the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend, and it is a respectable 6-3 in the past 9 games overall. Of course, 2 of those 3 losses came at home against the Mets Sept. 18-20 in South Florida.
