There was always an uneasy feeling about yesterday, beginning in the first inning when Andres Torres was picked off, costing the Mets a run.
The Mets were poised to complete a four-game sweep of the Dodgers, but there was never that growing sense of anticipation. Three errors, an offensive shutdown and the bullpen combined to throw away what could have been a watershed moment in this season.
Nope: Dodgers, 8-3 over the Mets.
Believe me, I thought it. The Mets sweep, then roll the reeling Phillies as they head into the break at least ten games over .500.
The onus is on the defense, but remember it is up to Dillon Gee and the relievers to put adversity behind them.
