David Wright refused to make excuses for two lethargic losses to Miami. Still, he's looking forward to a baseball youth jerseys brief youth baseball jerseys break before the rival Yankees come to Citi Field for a tantalizing three-game series between teams making a playoff push.
Adam Conley slowed the Mets' pursuit of a National discount youth baseball jerseys League East title with a career-high seven innings, and the streaking Marlins handed New York a 6-0 loss Wednesday night.
''There's going to be days where we get outplayed and today we got outplayed in every area of the game,'' Wright said. ''I think the off day is coming at a good time.''
Entering with an 8 youth custom team baseball jerseys 1-2 game lead over Washington in the division, manager Terry Collins chose to rest his left-handed hitters against Conley, a 25-year-old lefty. With reserve outfielder Juan Lagares leading off, the Mets were shut out for the first time since July 23, and they lost consecutive games for first time since losing to Boston on Aug. 28-29.
The Nationals cut the customized youth baseball jerseys lead by a game with a 12-2 victory at Philadelphia. New York's magic number for the division title remained 10.
''We had such an emotional high going coming out of Atlanta,'' Collins said. ''I think you're seeing a little bit of a drainage. ... I think we need to just get away for a little bit.''
Rookie Steven Matz is set to start the opener Friday night against the Yankees, who will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound.
Facing a makeshift lineup of all right-handers, Conley (4-1) had the best start of his young career in front of his wife and infant daughter. He allowed three hits and struck out six as Miami beat New York for a second straight night to secure its fifth straight series win - matching a franchise record set in 2003 for most consecutive series won in one season, according to STATS.
