NEW YORK -- With a handful of boppers in their new-look lineup, these Miami Marlins are a legitimate comeback threat. Anthony DeSclafani Jersey . Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered leading off the 10th inning, Giancarlo Stanton also went deep and Miami rallied from four runs down to beat the New York Mets 7-6 on Saturday night. Stanton hit a two-run shot and Miami climbed out of a 5-1 hole with a five-run sixth capped by pinch-hitter Reed Johnsons two-run double. Stantons seventh home run of the season gave him 29 RBIs, most in the majors. "There wasnt any point we thought we were out of this game," Saltalamacchia said. "With our lineup, theres no doubt were going to put up runs." Bobby Abreu hit his first major league homer since 2012 and Lucas Duda had a two-run single for the Mets, who had won three straight and five of six. New York was trying to move four games over .500 for the first time since July 14, 2012. Mike Dunn (2-3) struck out four in two hitless innings and Steve Cishek earned his fifth save, one night after coughing up a ninth-inning lead for his first blown save since June 4, 2013. Cishek had converted a team-record 33 straight chances before Friday. "These guys have a lot of fight in them. I wasnt worried that they were going to get down on themselves," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Definitely something to build off of tonight." Saltalamacchia, who hit a tying homer Friday, sent a 2-2 pitch from Kyle Farnsworth (0-1) off a railing just above the left-centre fence. The ball caromed back onto the field and Saltalamacchia initially stopped at second base, but the umpires quickly waved him home without looking at a replay. "It was supposed to be a fastball away, came over the middle," Farnsworth said. "If Im going to get beat, Im going to get beat with my best pitch and he put a good swing on it, went opposite field." "Hes trying to do one thing -- hit the ball out of the park. Im looking to be aggressive," the reliever added. "Just one of those cases of old-fashioned hardball." Miami is 2-9 on the road and 3-11 against NL East opponents. But the offence is certainly dangerous; the previously punchless Marlins began the day third in the NL in runs and batting average. Mets starter Jenrry Mejia, backed by two outstanding plays from shortstop Omar Quintanilla, took a 5-1 lead into the sixth, when the first three Marlins batters swung at the first pitch and hit the ball hard. "It caught me by surprise, thats for sure," Mets catcher Travis dArnaud said. Marcell Ozuna doubled, Stanton homered to right-centre and Casey McGehee singled as rain began to fall. Two outs later, Adeiny Hechavarria chased Mejia with an RBI single. Johnson went after Carlos Torres first pitch and sliced a high fly that landed just fair in the right-field corner to give Miami a 6-5 advantage. "We saw what we can do in one inning. We have to keep that confidence up tomorrow," Stanton said. Mejia was charged with six runs and eight hits. New York starters had gone straight 11 games without allowing more than three runs. Saltalamacchias passed ball and Hechavarrias throwing error from shortstop let the Mets tie it in the bottom half. Five hitters in New Yorks lineup entered batting .375 or better with at least one home run against Marlins starter Kevin Slowey. One of those was the 40-year-old Abreu, who made his second start for the Mets since getting called up Monday from Triple-A Las Vegas. Abreu, who didnt play in the majors last season, hit a two-run shot in the first inning to give New York a 3-0 lead. It was his first big league homer since Sept. 28, 2012, with the Los Angeles Dodgers against Colorado. "Feels good, man. A relief, Id say, after one year off," Abreu said. Shoddy defence by the Marlins led to New Yorks first run, on David Wrights sacrifice fly. Derek Dietrich hit an RBI single in the second, snapping Mejias scoreless streak at a career-best 14 2-3 innings. NOTES: Sloweys previous outing at Citi Field was a memorable one. He struck out eight over seven shutout innings, setting club records for strikeouts and innings in a relief appearance, to earn the win in Miamis 20-inning victory last June 8. ... New York native Tom Koehler (2-1, 2.13 ERA) faces Mets RHP Dillon Gee (1-1, 3.58 ERA) in the series finale Sunday. ... Abreu is 8 for 20 (.400) with four home runs against Slowey. ... Mets manager Terry Collins won a replay challenge in the top of the ninth after Christian Yelich was called safe at first on a bunt. The ruling was overturned following a review that lasted 2 minutes, 8 seconds. ... Mets 2B Daniel Murphy was ejected by plate umpire Seth Buckminster for protesting a called third strike in the bottom of the 10th. Joey Votto Jersey . Dwyane Wade took over in the fourth quarter. Michael Lorenzen Jersey . - The Green Bay Packers got back to work on Friday without star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. http://www.redsauthenticproshop.com/authentic-brandon-finnegan-reds-jersey/ . He insists hes not counting. "If youre thinking hits, youre not paying attention to wins," Altuve said Sunday after leading the Houston Astros past the Texas Rangers 3-2.TORONTO -- Milos Raonic wasnt at his best but was relieved to stay alive at the Rogers Cup. Despite a serve that was intimidating but not perfect and some erratic play, Raonic won two tiebreaks to beat American Jack Sock 4-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4) on centre court Wednesday night at Rexall Centre. "All the difficulties getting through that match, facing break points two of my service games consecutively, doing a poor job in converting the chances I had," Raonic said. "All those things that maybe if it doesnt go your way you wouldve said, I wish I did this differently, and this and this in these situations, all that, lets say weight that might be on your shoulders, its the relief of that just sort of getting off." Amid chants of "Lets Go Milos," Raonic kept Canadian hope alive in the tournament. On Tuesday, all four men who played singles were eliminated, and Eugenie Bouchard bowed out in Montreal. Raonic cranked his serve up past 200 kilometres per hour, finishing with 15 aces that helped offset some struggles against Sock, who played some of his best tennis even in defeat. Raonic won 79 per cent of his first-serve points, below his stellar average, and failing to be perfect cost him the first set. The 23-year-old held serve in the second set before blowing Sock out in the tiebreak. Raonic needed another tiebreak -- this one tenser -- to finish off the match. "When you play him, usually when you get down a break, it usually means the sets over," Sock said. "Thats why he kind of is where he is though, he kind of comes up big in those moments." Raonic is something of a tiebreak specialist, and this match was no different. "I feel good in those situations," he said. "Especially if things are not going throughout the set the way I wouldve liked, Im not converting opportunities or giving away too many opportunities, I know that if I can get it to a tiebreak I can sort of tip the things in my favour." One thing that tipped the scales in Raonics favour was the crowd. Sock loved the "electric" and "fun" atmosphere but not everything he heard. "A couple of them were a little more rude than I thought," Sock said. "I thought he got treated pretty well last week in the States, and there were some pretty inappropriate comments tonight." Sock blamed himself for missed opportunities, adding that "the fans saying anything didnt change whether I missed those forehands by two inches or not." For his part, Raonic said he has "listened to much worse playing in other countries." Julien Benneteau of France awaits Raonic in the third round Thursday night. Benneteau upset 11th-seeded Ernests Gulbis Wednesday after beating former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt in the first round. Raonic said he didnt expect his first match at the Rogers Cup to be perfect. Moving forward, he hopes for improvement. "I expect to play a little bit better tomorrow, but I dont know what that is," Raonic said. By edging Sock, Raonic can keep his recent momentum going. He won last weeks Citi Open in Washington by beating Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil in the first-ever all-Canadiian final a month after becoming the first Canadian to reach the Wimbledon semifinals. Scott Feldman Jersey. Raonic came into the week tied for his career high in the rankings at No. 6 and now has a chance to keep climbing the ladder. The man atop those rankings, Novak Djokovic, got pushed to the limit earlier in the day before beating Gael Monfils 6-2, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (2) in an emotional match. Monfils pulled out all the stops by hitting a between-the-legs shot and throwing his racket to hit the ball, and each player tried to ignite the crowd to get louder. "Hes probably the only guy in the world, tennis player, that I would pay a ticket to watch the match," Djokovic said of Monfils. "He loves jumping around, sliding, hes very unpredictable. You dont know what his next move is, so thats why hes so interesting." Monfils didnt endear himself to fans by arguing with chair umpire Gerry Armstrong after receiving a time violation, even as they were captivated by his dazzling play on the court. As a result, Djokovic had support behind him as he came back from a three games to one deficit in the third set. After finishing off two-hour, 40-minute classic in a lopsided tiebreak, Djokovic fist-pumped and yelled with excitement. Except for when he chided Armstrong for giving him a warning "for nothing" when he switched his racket, Monfils looked to be enjoying himself for most of the match. The most memorable part of the match was when Monfils threw his racket and kept running without it -- for "fun." Monfils made Djokovic had to earn this victory. "Hes simply the best at the moment," Monfils said of Djokovic. "At some stage of the match, you knew that you could not ace him or have any free points with your serve. This is tough. And then his timing is great, hes always on time, run good, different attacks. I think hes just the No. 1 for a reason." By avoiding what wouldve been the biggest upset of the tournament thus far, Djokovic kept alive the possibility of facing eighth-seeded Andy Murray in the quarter-finals. Murray had little trouble winning his opening match in Toronto, as he beat 19-year-old Australian Nick Kyrgios 6-2, 6-2 in the first match of the day on centre court. Murray could have a major challenge in the near future in the form of Djokovic. "Its a tough draw, but its also good to play against someone like a Novak if you get that opportunity in the buildup to the U.S. Open," said Murray, who gets 12th-seeded Richard Gasquet in the next round. "You really see where your game is at." In other action, Gasquet beat hard-serving Ivo Karlovic 5-7, 7-6 (5), 6-3, fifth-seeded David Ferrer beat American qualifier Michael Russell 6-4, 2-6, 6-1, seventh-seeded Grigr Dimitrov beat Donald Young 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 15th-seeded Marin Cilic beat Malek Jaziri 4-6, 6-0, 7-6 (4), 17th-seeded Tommy Robredo beat Gilles Simon 7-5, 6-4, Kevin Anderson beat 16th-seeded Fabio Fognini 7-5, 6-2, Ivan Dodig beat Andreas Seppi 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (5) and Feliciano Lopez beat Tim Smyczek 7-5, 6-4. In doubles, Canadian Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic beat Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 6-4.
