Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Nick Green hit a game-winning sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 15th inning as the Miami Marlins fought and rallied for a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets Monday in the opener of a three-game test.

Trailing 3-2 through the first half of the 15th, Greg Dobbs singled to center with one out. Justin Ruggiano walked and Rob Brantly poked a single to right to tie the game. Green, who finished with two hits, plated Ruggiano with a deep fly to left field for the difference-maker.

Reliever Jon Rauch (1-2) picked up the win after lasting three innings and allowing one run, while striking out five in the victory. Brantly finished 3- for-7 with an RBI and Green drove in two for the Marlins, who have won two straight for the first time since October 1-2 of 2012. That was also the last time the Mets came to town.

John Buck had the game's only homer, a two-run blast, and Ruben Tejada hit a tie-breaking infield single in the top of the 15th for the Mets, who extended their season-high losing streak to five games. Shaun Marcum (0-2) was dealt with the loss in three innings of relief, allowing both crucial runs on four hits.

Bobby Parnell had a blown save, his second of the season, in the ninth.
