Suckiest suck that ever sucked: Billy Wagner - 1ip, 2h, 2r, 2er, 2bb, 2k

The Mets as a whole could easily win this award for always failing to tack on runs in games like this. Billy Wagner has been something resembling perfect this season whenever he has been called upon and he finally came up short. He gets the blame for giving up the tying and go-ahead runs in the ninth but the Mets have a number of opportunities to tack on additional runs and always failed to do so.

Carlos Beltran also made a terrible read of Hanley Ramirez's flyball that plated those two runs in the ninth, but he also hit a homerun that accounted for the Mets' only three runs. The Braves lost and this would have been a great game to make up for losing two-of-three to Atlanta, but it wasn't meant to be.
