MIAMI -- The Mets wrapped up their season with a 4-2 victory Wednesday over the Marlins and Stony Brook product Tom Koehler. In his first big league start, he allowed three runs in six innings, including home runs to Andres Torres and Scott Hairston.

Ike Davis also hit a homer for the Mets, who finished 74-88 in a season that manager Terry Collins said began with "zero expectations."

Following the game, Collins addressed the team, praising them for their approach despite a season that unraveled.

David Wright, who called the season bittersweet, said no extension talks have been scheduled. Wright said he will retain agents Sam and Seth Levinson, whose ACES firm is under investigation for potential links to performance-enhancing drugs."I've seen the way they've represented me," Wright said. "I've seen the way they've represented their clients. Everything I've see has been nothing but integrity. They've done a heck of a job for me, so it's a no brainer for me."
