Matthew Cerrone, MetsBlog.com:
I like that the Mets were aggressive tonight on the base paths, but they were gunned down time and time again, whether it was Wright’s double in the corner or Ike Davis at the plate… Nevertheless, they are currently the worst offense in baseball over the last week or so. It’s been brutal. They had the right approach tonight. Hopefully it plays out better tomorrow. Frankly, the only thing you really need to know at this point is if the Marlins beat the Dodgers later tonight in Los Angeles, the Mets will begin tomorrow in last place in the National League East. June seems like a lifetime ago…
