5-run 7th caps rally as Mets down Marlins

After watching the Marlins send 11 to the plate and score six times in the fourth inning, the Mets responded with their own big frame in the seventh. Eleven hitters went to the plate, and backed by T.J. Rivera’s two-run double and Wilmer Flores’ two-out bases-loaded walk, New York stunned Miami, 8-7, on Friday night at Citi Field to take the series opener.
