Mets 90-55 after 145 played

ReyesglavineIt could have been the night it all was over.

Alas, a late Philly rally over the Braves in their opener of their twin bill dashed the hopes of the Mets clinching the NL East on Wednesday, and the Phils carried the momentum into the nightcap. All the sweep did was delay the inevitable, of course.

Carlos Delgado resumed his role as Captain Clutch, forcing extra innings in Miami, then the Mets let the Marlins do the rest, and their sloppy play led to a 7-4 NY victory.
