Another night, another deflating loss for Jason Isringhausen and the New York Mets.
After surrendering a 10th-inning grand slam to Mike Stanton in Monday's series-opening loss, Isringhausen allowed two runs in the top of the ninth as the Mets fell, 4-3, to the Florida Marlins.
The Marlins loaded the bases with one down against Isringhausen (2-2) before pinch-hitter Bryan Petersen dribbled a grounder toward second. Justin Turner fielded the ball and made an errant throw to first baseman Lucas Duda, allowing the tying and go-ahead runs to cross the plate.
Steve Cishek (2-1) threw two scoreless frames to earn the win, and Leo Nunez recorded his 31st save of the season after entering in the ninth with a runner aboard and closing the door.
Omar Infante belted two home runs for the Marlins, who moved to .500 for the first time since June 12.
The loss ruined a strong outing from Mets starter Chris Capuano, who allowed two runs on four hits over six innings and also scored a run.
Jose Reyes added a home run for the Mets, losers of four in a row.
