MIAMI -- Nick Green drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly and the Miami Marlins rallied for two runs in the 15th inning to beat the Mets 4-3 on Monday night, handing New York its fifth consecutive loss.

Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton limped out of the game in the 10th inning with a strained right hamstring. He hit a tapper in front of the plate and clutched his leg just before crossing first base, then fell face-first to the turf.

Miami trailed 3-2 when Greg Dobbs singled with one out in the 15th against Shaun Marcum (0-2), a starter working out of the bullpen after the Mets ran out of relievers. Justin Ruggiano walked and Rob Brantly hit an RBI single to right, with Dobbs barely beating the throw home.

Green followed with fly ball to left field, and Ruggiano scored easily from third.
