New York Mets
Both of Flores’ long balls came against reliever Brad Penny -- a three-run shot in the fifth and a two-run shot in the seventh.
Flores is now 8-for-15 with two doubles, one triple, three homers and 10 RBIs in his past four games.
He also had a six-RBI game on June 2 against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Hits scattered: Bartolo Colon earned the win despite surrendering 12 hits. Colon stranded the bases loaded in the fifth inning and preserved a 4-1 lead by striking out Marcell Ozuna and getting Garrett Jones to ground out.
Colon’s final line: 7.2 IP, 12 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K.
It matched the second-most hits surrendered in franchise history by a starting pitcher who allowed one run or fewer. Jason Isringhausen allowed one run and 13 hits in 7 1/3 innings against the Phillies on Sept. 15, 1995. Bobby J. Jones allowed 12 hits in 7 1/3 scoreless innings against the Atlanta Braves on June 10, 1996.
Injury report: Juan Lagares departed the game after four innings with what the team labeled a hyperextended right elbow.
Penned: Rafael Montero made his first relief appearance since reverting to a relief role after last Wednesday's start against the Rockies. He handled the ninth inning in scoreless fashion despite allowing the first two batters to reach.
What’s next: The Mets (73-79) and Marlins (73-77) complete their season series Wednesday at 7:10 p.m. Dillon Gee (7-7, 3.80 ERA) opposes right-hander Henderson Alvarez (10-6, 2.81). The Mets already have clinched the season series, 11-7.
