The Mets had a late rally yesterday against the Atlanta Braves, but Chipper Jones spoiled that with an RBI single in the 9th which gave the Braves the 6-5 win. That loss drops the Mets a full game in the NL Wild Card race.  They sit 9 games behind Atlanta, and Arizona and St. Louis sit in the second and third places spots currently. After a promising summer, everything seems to be slipping away from a team that was showing huge potential.

Not only did the Mets lose the game yesterday, they also lose two of their big hitters as well.  Jose Reyes and Daniel Murphy both left the game due to injury.  Reyes suffered stiffness in his hamstring and left in the bottom of the second inning.  It’s the same hamstring that he injured last month that had him out for 16 games, no word yet as to whether or not this will take him out or not.

Murphy suffered the more serious injury however.  He was making a play at second base when Braves left fielder Jose Costanza slid into Murphy’s knee, causing a grade 2 MCL tear.  He is done for the season with that injury.  No surgery required, but there is a 4 month recovery period.  Murphy and Reyes were 2 of the Mets most dangerous and productive hitters, so their absence will be felt.

The Mets sit at 3rd place in the NL East, 17.5 games back of the first place Philles.  Hopes of the post season are fading fast, and the injuries are not helping the cause.
