Justin Turner went to the plate in the ninth inning Sunday with soaring confidence against Miami's Heath Bell, thanks to a 13-pitch battle the two had April 26 at Citi Field.

Turner walked with the bases loaded that day in Queens, driving in the tying run in a 3-2 Mets win. Sunday, he lashed a pinch-hit, two-run double off Bell that snapped a 2-2 tie, though the Met bullpen ultimately wasted his heroics.

"It wasn't too long ago so it was still pretty fresh in my mind," Turner said of the earlier at-bat.

"I feel pretty comfortable in the box up there against him and again he didn't really have good command of that breaking ball. It makes him a little more one-dimensional and I worked the count to 3-2 and with bases loaded he's got to throw a fastball there."
