Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the fact that the Mets offense did not get a hit after the 6th inning. Everyone is so quick to point the finger at Jerry Manuel and Oliver Perez but the bottom line is the Mets bats went to sleep in the late part of the game and that is the reason they lost this game. Bottom line.
