PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) -- Placido Polanco was 2 for 3 with a double in his return from an oblique strain that had sidelined him since March 1, and the Miami Marlins beat the Mets 4-2 Saturday as Justin Turner became the latest New York player to get hurt. Turner, the leading candidate to replace injured third baseman David Wright, sprained his right ankle in the fourth inning. Chris Coghlan was 2 for 4, including a RBI triple in the fourth off Shaun Marcum. Marlins prospect Christian Yelich added an opposite-field home run to left in the eighth against Jeurys Familia. Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez, in his return from the Venezuelan team at the World Baseball Classic, gave up one run and three hits in 3 2-3 innings. Kevin Slowey, who is competing for a rotation spot, gave up one run and two hits in 4 1-3 innings with four strikeouts and a walk. Marcum allowed two runs and five hits in four innings.
