Mets rally falls short

Was it asking too much that the Mets win 2 games with walk off hits in the bottom of the 9th?  Castillo had a chance to win it but was walked with 2 outs to load the bases. Up comes Reyes who before this series was hitting like.500 over 6-7 games. Now of course he is 0 for the Marlin series and he grounded out to first as the Mets lost 5-4 to the fish.  

Wright had lead off the inning with a solo shot to straight centerfield to bring the Mets to 5-4 and then Davis and Thole duplicated what they did Tuesday night by getting on again with hits and Hessman grounded out weakly that moved up the runners.  Stage was set but not meant to be . 

Misch pitched ok allowing 4 runs, earned over 6 innings and Igarashi gave up the 5th run which was manufactured by a trple by Morrison . Pagan also threw out Helms a tht eplate earlier in the game to prevent the fish from adding more runs.

The Mets only mustered 7 hits and 3 of those came in the 9th. Frenchy had another decent nite with 2 hits and a rbi. He has been crowding the plate and if you can believe this he leads the team in pitches per plate appearance for the month of August.   

The Mets blew a chance to gain on the Phillies and Braves who both lost. Mets try to win the series tonight with Niese heading to the mound.

What was more frustrating was that (I believe) Reyes grounded out on the first pitch after the walk to Castillo. Have to be more patient there.
