  Mets lose 2-1 against the Marlins in 20 innings. Harvey leaves the mound due to tightness in his lower back. Saturday marks a difficult day at Citi Field. The New York Mets lost 2-1 in a 20-inning battle against the Marlins, a team with one of the worst records in baseball. The tough loss was the longest game in Citi Field history. Coming off from a 10-1 win against the Nationals Thursday, the Mets couldn’t continue carry that momentum into the series against Miami. Defensively, the game revolved around two pitchers battling it out, Matt Harvey and Jose Fernandez. The competition between the two lasted just before the seventh inning when Fernandez was removed from the game and Harvey just after. From a disgruntled crowd and premature departure, Matt Harvey left the mound due to tightness in his lower back. However, Harvey received a standing ovation from the worried fans for his strong performance, allowing only one run and six hits to the Marlins. This familiar matchup wasn’t the first time the two have faced each other. Coming off a sweep against the Mets in Miami, Fernandez and Harvey were once again set up for another rematch. The marathon lasted 6 hours and 25 minutes. A new record for the franchise, the Mets went 0-19 with runners in scoring position. Both teams struggled offensively. Ike Davis led with a walk and was brought home by Juan Lagares’s double to left center in the second inning. Ike was the only player to score for the Mets and were shut out for 18 innings until Marlins infielder, Adeiny Hechavarria, hit the single to bring in the decisive run to end the scoreless streak in the 20th. Shaun Marcum closed the game and received the loss for the Mets while Steve Cishek got the save for the Marlins. Can the Mets bounce back from last night and pull out a win or will defeat overcome their ability. The Mets will face one more game today against the Fish at 1:10pm.
