Mets 5W: R. Hernandez (7-6)

L: Quantrill (1-2)Marlins 4

Florida's slender wild-card hopes were jolted after New York scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. It was the sixth loss in seven games for the Marlins.

A bizarre eighth inning included a 12-minute delay because of a light failure at Shea Stadium.
