Unhappy Recap: Cardinals 5 Mets 0

A complete and utter disaster. Steve Trachsel pitched one of the worst games any starter has ever pitched in the playoffs. He faced 12 batters, walked 5 of them and allowed 5 hits including a home run by the pitcher.

But it probably wouldn't have mattered. The Mets could not hit Jeff Suppan. He went 8 innings and allowed only 3 hits.

The momentum in this series is now squarely in the Cardinals camp.

The only positives for the Mets were a triple by Jose Reyes and 6 great innings from Darren Oliver out of the pen. He gave Heilman, Wagner, Mota, Feliciano and Bradford a day off which they may very well need. That is why Tim McCarver was wrong for criticizing Willie for leaving Oliver in the game. The Mets had to give up on Game 3 and try to save the bullpen for Games 4 & 5.
