The Mets’ weaknesses conspired against them again last night. The bullpen blew another lead and the offense floundered late in a 4-3 loss to the Marlins. Aaron Heilman walked four in the ninth to score the winning run after Duaner Sanchez gave up a solo homer to Mike Jacobs to tie it in the eighth.
The notebook had reaction from Mike Pelfrey, who hit Cody Ross with a pitch in the second inning, causing the benches to clear. I also have Jerry Manuel’s thoughts on Ryan Church and three injuries to watch in the bullpen.
