MIAMI (AP) -The Mets' Pedro Martinez left early with a leg injury, and Robert Andino's first career home run with two outs in the 10th inning gave the Florida Marlins a 5-4 win over New York on Tuesday night.
Already coming off two injury-plagued seasons, Martinez strained his left hamstring in the fourth inning, after just 57 pitches.
The Mets bullpen more than picked up the slack in Martinez's absence, until Andino - who had just six extra-base hits in his first 81 major league at-bats - homered to left field off Matt Wise (0-1), the sixth Mets pitcher.
Justin Miller (1-0) allowed Brian Schneider's third hit of the game in the 10th, but retired Endy Chavez and Jose Reyes on flyouts to strand him there.
