On Thursday, the Mets did to the Cardinals what losing teams did to the Mets in 2007 and 2008: played spoiler. And in dramatic fashion, putting up a 6-spot in the top of the ninth. Bobby Parnell pitched a 1-2-3 bottom half to earn the save. It’s nice to see that this team doesn’t roll over, even in the last week of the season.
