Jerry Manuel is confident the New York Mets will one day take their home success on the road. Until then, the manager sure is enjoying the games at Citi Field.

Jeff Francoeur hit a tying, three-run homer in the seventh inning and the Mets rallied to beat the visiting Florida Marlins, 7-6, yesterday, running their home winning streak to eight games.

The Mets improved to 18-4 in their last 22 games at Citi Field.

Angel Pagan had a two-run single in New York's three-run sixth and scored the go-ahead run when Ike Davis grounded into a doubleplay in the eighth.

The Marlins led 5-0 and 6-3 before absorbing their fourth loss in five games. But there is help on the way, with highly touted slugger Mike Stanton scheduled to make his major league debut tomorrow at Philadelphia.

"I'm happy for the young man to come out and be part of this team and help us," manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Stanton wowed the Marlins during spring training with his power, but the 20-year-old outfielder was sent to Double A Jacksonville for seasoning. He responded by dominating the Southern League, hitting .311 with 21 homers and 52 RBI in 52 games to earn the promotion to the majors.

Florida also called up reliever Rick Vanden Hurk and speedy utilityman Emilio Bonifacio from Triple A New Orleans after yesterday's game.
