Marlins look to continue roll vs. Mets

NEW YORK -- The goal for the Miami Marlins down the stretch is a more tangible and harder to achieve one than the objective identified by the New York Mets. But regardless of whether or not they climb back to .500 and inch into the National League wild-card race, the Marlins are far likely to enjoy a smoother ride than the dismantled Mets.

The Marlins will look to take another step closer to .500 on Saturday night, when they visit the Mets in the middle game of a three-game series at Citi Field. Miami's Vance Worley (2-2, 4.97 ERA) is scheduled to oppose New York's Rafael Montero (1-8, 5.80 ERA) in a battle of right-handers.

The Marlins earned their sixth win in the last seven games Friday by edging the Mets, 3-1, to improve to 59-61 -- the closest they have been to .500 since May 3. With a victory Saturday, Miami will be one game under .500 for the first time since May 1.
