Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Marlon Byrd's two-run single in the ninth inning gave the New York Mets a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the Miami Marlins in a rubber match on Sunday.

Steve Cishek (0-1) led off the ninth on the mound and got the first out, but then nicked Ruben Tejada with a pitch. Kirk Niuewenhuis then dropped a single into left field that saw Tejada move to third and Nieuwenhuis take second on Juan Pierre's throw to third.

With the infield in, Byrd ripped a pitch down the third base line and past a diving Chris Valaika, scoring both runners for the victory.
