It’s hard to believe that this team couldn’t generate any juice from Johan Santana’s performance yesterday. But the Mets just couldn’t get any offense going after scoring two runs in the sixth inning.
Oliver Perez did a decent job giving up only two runs over 5.1 innings. The killer was Scott Schoenweiss and Luis Ayala giving up back to back homers to Helms and Uggla in the eighth inning. That capped the win for the Marlins.
Shea Stadium goes out sadly with the Milwaukee Brewers sealing the Wild Card spot with a win today.
