ST vs. Dodgers: Win

Mets 1 Dodgers 0

Brady Clark was the hero, winning the game in dramatic style by getting in the way of a pitch with the bases loaded to force in the winning run.

Matt “The Windmill” Wise pitched one inning to earn the victory.

Actually, the real hero was Ezequiel Carrera, who entered the game to play leftfield and made an Endy-like, game-saving catch in the 8th to keep the Dodgers from scoring. The table was set for Carrera to win the ballgame when he came to bat with one out and runners on second and third in the ninth, but walked.
