“It’s disappointing in how we played,” third baseman David Wright said. “We didn’t really do anything right tonight, and that’s troublesome because it was a big game for us, the ability to take two out of three from the first-place team.”
The loss really set the Mets back last night, and they now find themselves 7 1/2 games behind the first place Braves.
Eric Simon of Amazin Avenue points out that even if the Braves play .500 ball for the rest of the season, the Mets would have to go 35-19 just to end the season in a tie. Things are starting to look bleak.
David Wright talks a little about what went wrong and also discusses the Mets’ three-error sixth inning in this video from ESPN.
