With the Mets fighting to avoid another September collapse, Daniel Murphy led off the 9th inning of a tie game against the Chicago Cubs at Shea with a promising triple. After a David Wright strikeout, and intentional walks to Carlos Delgado and Carlos Beltran, Ryan Church and Ramon Castro couldn't advance any runners with the bases loaded, and the Mets went on to lose 9-6 in 10 innings. In terms of bad losses during the collapse of 2008 this ranked high on the "We're Really Screwed" meter.
