This may have been the ugliest game the Miami Marlins have played all season long. The Fish suffered an embarrassment on every front in tonight's 7-3 trouncing by the New York Mets. In fact, the fact that the score was even as close as four runs was a miracle. The Marlins misplayed balls defensive in the first three innings against a Mets offense that had been struggling to score. From a Gil Velazquez missed popup to Jose Reyes forgetting the number of outs and failing to attempt a double play, the Marlins gave back numerous outs to an opportunistic Mets offense. Do not let the one-error count fool you; the Marlins were terrible on defense.

Jacob Turner made a mediocre start against the Mets, but his defense did him no favors on the way to six runs allowed (three earned). The offense did nothing either, and beyond all of that, Justin Ruggiano left the game with a right shoulder sprain. All in all, the Marlins suffered one of the worst losses of the season.
