Game 54: Mets 8 - Dodgers 4
The Mets were 6 outs away from a 2-game losing streak and a plunge back to 2 games under .500. They looked dead all day against Chad Billingsley. It was that close to losing those good vibes from the little 3-game winning streak of mid-week.
Yet you just had the feeling that maybe they could do something. They've shown enough life lately so that losing games where they're behind isn't a foregone conclusion.
