Recap:
Rob Brantly's RBI double in the eighth inning lifted the Miami Marlins to a 3-2 win over the New York Mets on Monday.

Carlos Lee opened the frame with a walk then moved to second on a wild pitch. Brantly followed with a line drive double to left field to knock in Lee.

"I got a pitch up in the zone away and got a good piece of the bat on it," Brantly said of the winning hit.

Giancarlo Stanton hit a solo homer and Jose Reyes knocked in a run for the Marlins, who won for just the second time in 11 games.

Heath Bell (4-5) earned the win with a scoreless eight and Steve Cishek tossed a perfect ninth for his 15th save of the season.

Mike Baxter and David Wright drove in one run apiece for the Mets, who have dropped three straight.

Ramon Ramirez (3-4) was pegged with the loss after giving up Brantly's double. Jeurys Familia made his first career start and gave up one hit over four scoreless innings, but walked six batters.

"Too many walks," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Familia's outing. "There's work ahead...but it's fun to work with when you have arms like that."

The Mets took an early 1-0 lead when Wright ripped a single to center field to score Ronny Cedeno in the fifth inning.

Baxter's pinch-hit RBI double in the sixth gave New York a 2-0 lead, but the Marlins scored a run in both the sixth and seventh innings to tie the game.

Stanton roped a solo homer to left-center field in the sixth before Reyes' sacrifice fly in the seventh tied the game at 2-2.

Game Notes

Marlins second baseman Donovan Solano had a 10-game hitting streak snapped ... Gorkys Hernandez went 3-for-3 for Miami ... The Mets had won seven straight against the Marlins entering the game ... New York starter R.A. Dickey will make his final start of the season Tuesday and looks to tie Washington Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez for the MLB lead in wins with 21.
