The Miami Marlins didn’t lead on Tuesday until the end of the game but that was good enough for the 2-1 victory over the New York Mets which was their third straight win.   Kevin Slowey pitched a masterful eight innings but was a victim once again of low run support.   The third consecutive win gives Miami it’s longest winning streak of the year and improves their record to 8-19. Slowey struck out eight in his eight innings on the mound and allowed only one run on four hits.  It was the longest outing for a Marlins’ starter this year which the team needed after a 15 inning game a day earlier.  Slowey remained 0-2 on the year as the Marlins were unable to score until after he exited but he did lower his E.R.A to a sparkling 2.15.  Ryan Webb was credited with the win after pitching a scoreless ninth to keep the deficit at one.   Webb is now 1-1 on the season with a great 2.35 E.R.A of his own. Things were quiet for the Marlins’ offense until the bottom of the ninth with two of the team’s five hits coming in that inning.   The winning run was scored by Juan Pierre on a wild pitch after Donovan Solano had singled.   Solano had a big day with another hit earlier in the game and his fourth run batted in of the season.    With runners in scoring position, the Marlins were 1-1 as a team making the most of the lone opportunity they had. Miami will try to make it four wins in a row on Wednesday with Wade LeBlanc scheduled to start.
