Mets Beat Marlins in Final 2012 Game
Well, those who have been saying that that this Mets season cannot end soon enough have gotten their wish — the season is over. I don’t know about you, but I’m sad; I always am when the season ends. As disappointing as they were this season, I’d rather watch a crummy Mets game than none at all. At least they went out on a winning note Wednesday.
Andres Torres got the Mets on the board in the third with a rare home run to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. Torres hit just three homers all season.
Ike Davis doubled in the fifth and Scott Hairston followed with his 20th long ball of the year to extend the lead to 3-0.
Davis hit an opposite field shot in the sixth to make it a 4-0 game. Davis’s 32nd home run of the year gave him his 90th RBI.
Jeremy Hefner pitched extremely well against a Marlins team that looked like it wanted to pack up and get out as soon as possible. He left with one out in the eighth and two runners on base. One of them scored on a passed ball to make it a 4-2 game.
Mets win 4-2 and end the season with a record of 74-88, three games worse than last 2011.
