Goodbye Shea, goodbye postseason and goodbye to ever seeing a no-hitter at the Mets’ home since 1964.
In an eighth inning that mirrored many other Mets bullpen giveaways this year, the Marlins’ Wes Helms and Dan Uggla hit back-to-back homers off Scott Schoeneweis and Luis Ayala respectively to end the Mets season in a 4-2 loss. The Milwaukee Brewers clinched the N.L. wild-card spot Sunday with their win over the Chicago Cubs.
It’s only fitting that our patchwork bullpen would end the season.
The NoNoHitters.com count will remain at 7,482 games until next spring when the Mets begin their tenure at Citi Field, as Dan Uggla hit an infield single that went off Oliver Perez’s hand and rolled to second.
Shea, on the other hand, retires having seen just two no-hitters, neither by a Mets’ pitcher.
