NEW YORK (AP) - Mets collapse, the sequel.
Doomed by a dreadful bullpen that failed them again Sunday, the
New York Mets completed their second consecutive September slide
with a 4-2 loss to Florida that knocked them out of playoff
contention in the final game at Shea Stadium.
Scott Schoeneweis and Luis Ayala served up back-to-back homers
in the eighth inning that put the pesky Marlins ahead, and New York
(89-73) lost out to Milwaukee (90-72) for the NL wild card on the
last day of the season.
