Capuano dissects sixth swoon
By Adam Rubin
Chris Capuano offered this analysis of the Marlins' four-run sixth inning.
The inning began with an infield single by Emilio Bonifacio. Omar Infante then belted a triple to right-center. Gaby Sanchez followed with a two-run homer. With two out, Logan Morrison added a solo homer that gave Florida a 4-2 lead en route to an 8-5 win.
Sanchez had two homers and four RBIs. He is now hitting .384 (38-for-99) with six homers and 22 RBIs in his career against the Mets.
"It was three at-bats for me," Capuano said. "Bonifacio I made a great pitch to. He beat out that single there. Infante, I fell behind 2-0 and came with a fastball and left it up a little bit that he hit. And then the first pitch to Sanchez was a breaking ball. In retrospect, I didn't execute it as well as I could have. It kind of hung up in the middle there. On Morrison there, I thought I made a pretty good pitch -- the 0-1 pitch. Didn't get a call. Went to 2-1, and left a breaking ball up again. It was really two breaking balls that I kind of left up in the zone that hurt me."
