NEW YORK — With two games to go, the Mets don't look like a playoff team at all.

New York's offense fizzled and Mike Pelfrey lost to Florida for the fourth time this season, a 6-1 defeat Friday night that put the Mets' postseason chances in peril.

Josh Willingham homered and Hanley Ramirez had four hits for the Marlins, who knocked New York out of the playoff race on the final weekend last season.

The Marlins want to do it again, and they haven't hesitated to say so.

The Mets, who began the night tied atop the wild-card standings with Milwaukee, fell two games behind first-place Philadelphia, which beat Washington 8-4. They will send ace Johan Santana to the mound Saturday on three days' rest.
