Marlins-Mets preview

NEW YORK -- The Miami Marlins will only have to look across the field to find inspiration Wednesday night, when they make their latest attempt at snapping out of an extended offensive slump in the third game of a four-game series against the New York Mets at Citi Field.

The Mets hit three homers Monday as they beat the Marlins, 7-4, for their second straight win and their eighth victory in the last 10 games overall dating back to Aug. 20. New York has scored 60 runs in those 10 games after scoring 60 runs in 15 games from Aug. 4 through Aug. 19.

The surge -- which has vaulted the Mets (68-64) past the Marlins (67-65) in the National League East and drawn New York within 2 1/2 games of the St. Louis Cardinals in the race for the second NL wild card spot -- has been fueled by the return of Jose Reyes, Asdrubal Cabrera and Yoenis Cespedes, all of whom were on the disabled list earlier this month.
