Marlins at Mets, Port St. Lucie, FL

This was one of if not the last Spring Training game for both teams. The stadium was very nice and larger than most other Spring Training parks. Parking was $5 and tickets were $12-30. It was not sold out but it was about 70% full (about 5,500).

The pictures are here. They include some shots from Ft. Pierce Inlet and Vero Beach.

Marlins ace Josh Johnson started the game and seemed to be mostly just working on locating his fastball. I didn't see any breaking pitches. This is likely because he didn't want to show a divisional rival too much before the season. This resulted in him giving up some homeruns to David Wright and Jason Bay. Closer Leo Nuñez was effective in relief but the Marlins still lost 3-5.
