Ozuna's 4 RBIs propels Miami to sweep of Mets

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) — Marcell Ozuna drove in four runs and Greg Dobbs hit a three-run homer to help the Miami Marlins complete a three-game sweep over the New York Mets with an 11-6 win on Sunday.

Ed Lucas and Chris Coghlan each had four hits and two RBIs for the Marlins, who tied a season-high with 16 hits and swept the Mets in Miami for the first time since May 28-30, 2004.

It was the first sweep for Miami since taking three from Philadelphia from June 29-July 1, 2012.

Ike Davis homered and drove in three runs, and Lucas Duda and Omar Quintanilla also hit homers for New York, which came to Miami on a five-game winning streak including a four-game sweep over the Yankees.

Mets starter Matt Harvey had a 1.85 ERA coming into the game, but battled through five innings allowing season-highs in hits (10) and runs (four) in his shortest start of the season. He walked five and struck out two.

Still, Harvey left the game with a 6-4 lead and was relieved by Scott Rice (3-4), who issued three consecutive walks with one out in the sixth.

Ozuna took advantage of Rice's lack of control with a two-run double to left to tie the game at 6-all. Coghlan's RBI groundout gave the Marlins a 7-6 lead after leading 3-0 and 4-1 earlier in the game.

Lucas had an RBI double before Dobbs' hit a three-run homer in the eighth to cap the scoring for the Marlins.

Kevin Slowey started for Miami and allowed six runs in 4 1-3 innings. Wade LeBlanc (1-5) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings in relief for the win.

Ozuna, who snapped a 16-game hitting streak on Saturday, hit a two-run triple in his first at-bat. Coglan followed with a bloop double to score Ozuna for an early 3-0 lead.

Duda's 10th home run of the season cut the deficit to 3-1.

Lucas had an RBI single in the second to push the Marlins lead to 4-1.

Quintanilla's solo home run pulled the Mets within a run before Davis hit a two-run home run to center field to tie the game at 4-all in the fourth.

After LeBlanc relieved Slowey, Marlon Byrd and Davis delivered back-to-back RBI singles to give the Mets a 6-4 lead.

NOTES: Harvey's previous shortest start also came against the Marlins when he allowed one run in 5 1-3 innings at Miami on April 29. ... Mets LHP Jonathon Niese (shoulder) is expected to re-join the starting rotation on Saturday if his bullpen session goes well on Tuesday. ... Marlins 1B Casey Kotchman (hamstring) is eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list on Monday and plans on making the road trip beginning in Philadelphia. "I'll be excited to put this uniform on and play," Kotchman said. ... The Marlins will send RHP Tom Koehler (0-3, 3.22 ERA) to the mound against the Phillies RHP Kyle Kendrick (5-3, 3.27 ERA). ... The Mets are off on Monday and will begin a three-game series at Washington on Tuesday with RHP Jeremy Hefner (1-5, 4.74 ERA) on the hill against RHP Jordan Zimmermann (8-3, 2.37 ERA).
