They had leads of 3-0 and 4-3 but no matter since the bullpen did the Mets in again and the Mets lost today to the Astros 6-4 in 10 innings.
Ollie Perez left with one out in the 7th inning and gave way to AAron Heilman who didn't record an out.
With the score tied at 4 the Mets again struggled to men on base in the latter innings while the Astros scored in the 10th inning off of Pedro Feliciano with 2 solo home runs by Brad Asmus and Daren Estad.
The lone bright spot today was Carlos Beltran's 2 home runs from the left side of the plate. He had 3 rbis on the day.
The Mets wait on tonight's Philly-Dodger game to see if the Mets have more then 1/2 game lead
