Jose Reyes was happy to be leaving the Big Apple and returning to Miami, and not because he was booed by Mets fans throughout the three-game series. His homecoming didn't turn out the way he had hoped. "We lost all three games and I didn't do anything here," Reyes said after going hitless in his four at-bats Thursday. Reyes had only one hit in the series and last year's National League batting champ is hitting just .205. He's not the only member in the top third of the Marlins order now struggling at the plate. Hanley Ramirez didn't get a hit the entire road trip and Emilio Bonifacio had just one. The team's top three hitters — Reyes, Bonifacio and Ramirez — combined to go 4 for 57 on the trip, capped by a 0-for-12 effort Thursday. "We need to start hitting and getting on base, do something," Reyes said. "Right now, it's not going the way we want it to. It's not looking too good the way we're playing right now. We're better than what we're showing right now. We haven't played the way we're supposed to play."
