PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Mets came within an out of a one-hit shutout and beat the Miami Marlins, 4-1, Thursday at Tradition Field.

The lone hit through 8 2/3 innings came on a sixth-inning infield single by Juan Pierre against Josh Edgin. The lone run came on a two-out homer in the ninth by J.T. Realmuto against submariner Greg Burke.

After 4 1/3 no-hit innings by Matt Harvey, Pedro Feliciano, Edgin, Brandon Lyon and Scott Rice carried the shutout bid to the ninth.

Anthony Recker opened the scoring with an RBI single against Ricky Nolasco in the second. Matt den Dekker added a solo homer in the fifth against Mitch Talbot. Andrew Brown had an RBI double and Justin Turner drove in a run with a single an inning later, also against Talbot.

Game tidbits:

BUCK SHOT: Talbot plunked John Buck on the arm with a sixth-inning pitch, but Buck said it was a nonissue postgame.

OUT AND ABOUT: Turner logged two innings in left field -- his first outfield action since his first season as a professional, in 2006.
