The Mets picked a fine time to begin a losing streak. After winning 5 in a row during the last road trip the Mets lost the last 2 to the Nationals and lost last night to the Marlins 7-3 with the assistance of block head instincts by Mr Murphy. Not what you need to do when the team that is leading the Wild Card chase finally lost 2 in a row. The Braves who seemed to win every night lost last night to the Nationals.
The big winner has been the D Backs who have won 3 straight. They are winners of 7 out of 10 and are 2.5 games out of the Wild Card lead. With there win last night against the Giants, who have lost 4 of 5 with Beltran in the lineup, are only 1 game up on the D-Backs.
Mets have 2 more against the Fish and then have a 3 game series against the Braves this weekend which could be do or die for the Mets. Wild Card Standings Below.
