Worth noting

• The Mets tweaked their lineup again on Thursday after being shut out by the Marlins, 13-0, on Wednesday night. David Wright shifted to the cleanup spot for the ninth time this season, with Daniel Murphy batting third and Ike Davis fifth. But the personnel was the same, with Mike Baxter and Jordany Valdespin manning the corner outfield positions and Jason Bay on the bench.

• Brittany Viola's Olympic run came to an end Thursday morning, when the daughter of former Mets pitcher Frank Viola finished in 15th place in the semifinals of the women's 10-meter diving competition. With Frank and the rest of her family in attendance in London, Viola had been one of two American divers to reach the semifinals.
