Marlins 1, Mets 0

MIAMI — Racing to beat a throw from centerfield with the game on the line, Giancarlo Stanton slid and reached out with his left hand to tag the plate.

Home sweet home. Stanton and the surprising Marlins won another thriller in their ballpark Wednesday.

Stanton scored on Marcell Ozuna's one-out sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, and Miami beat the Mets 1-0. The Marlins completed a three-game sweep, finished 8-1 on their homestand and improved to 17-5 at home, best in the majors.

"We have complete confidence," said Casey McGehee, who drew a key walk during the ninth-inning rally. "There was never a doubt in my mind we were going to get that game, no matter how long it took. That's the way it's supposed to be."

The Marlins have won three of their past four games with walkoffs.

"They put a lot of strain on guys' hearts," said Tom Koehler, who pitched eight innings to match a career high and didn't allow a run for the second start in a row, improving his ERA to 1.99.
