This was a great victory for the Mets, as it was the type of game the Mets generally blow and the Nats generally win (at least for the first half of 2005). Close game all night, the Mets got in some trouble in the ninth inning but Heilman got out of it.

In the eleventh, Piazza hit an RBI single (his second RBI of the game) to score Beltran. In theory, this should have brought up David Wright with Piazza on first and Floyd on third and one out, but Piazza was then thrown out by the catcher trying to stretch it to a double, and then Floyd was thrown out trying to sneak home on the Piazza play. Typical Mets concentration blunder, but it wasn't costly as Looper closed the game for a big 3-1 series victory. Beginning with the first game of this series, the Nats took a horrible dive, falling out of the division lead and back to the pack. As of my writing this, they are two games out of the wild card race but still fading.

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.
