Marlins 8, Mets 4: Bullpen Meltdown In Full Effect

MIAMI, FL - MAY 13: Giancarlo Stanton #27 of the Miami Marlins tosses the bat as he watches his walk off grand slam during a game against the New York Mets at Marlins Park on May 13, 2012 in Miami, Florida. The Marlins defeated the Mets 8-4. (Photo by Sarah Glenn/Getty Images)

The Mets scored a couple of runs against Carlos Zambrano, and the bullpen blew the lead. They scored another pair of runs in the ninth inning against Heath Bell, and the bullpen blew that lead, too, but worse. They really, really blew it, and the Mets dropped the rubber game of the series as a result.

We knew it was over when...

Giancarlo Stanton stepped into the batter's box against Manny Acosta with the bases loaded and two outs and the game tied in the bottom of the ninth.

What else?

After giving up a triple, a walk, and a run-scoring single, Frank Francisco went ballistic on the home plate umpire. He may have had a point about the strike zone, but his tirade was embarrassing.
