Near Sweep

How sweet would it be for the Mets to complete a sweep of a three game series at Yankee Stadium? Well, we almost found that out last night. The Mets took a one-run lead into the ninth innning. Braden Looper walked the leadoff hitter, and it was downhill from there.

Looper: "Basically, we had a one-run lead and should have won the game and I didn't get the job done. I stunk." Exactly. A team that is going places doesn't lose games like this. Yes, it's only one game, but over a season, losses like these add up.
