Mets Game Notes
Very strange game, in that the Mets went ahead first and held the lead through the final out. Also strange that after getting ahead, they tacked on another four runs thanks to a grand slam by their catcher. Further strange that Jenrry Mejia closed out the game to earn a save without incident.
Did I miss any other weird things?
That was great hitting by Taylor Teagarden, by the way. And a nice homer by Daniel Murphy to drive in the first two runs of the game. Baseball is all about the homers, so I won’t bother dwelling over all the details.
One of the highlights: Keith Hernandez discussing the game in which he drove in the most “rib eye steaks.” He explained that he drove in 7 runs the day after his divorce was finalized, and said to a beat writer, “if I got divorced every week, I’d be in the Hall of Fame. I’d be broke, but I’d be in the Hall of Fame.”
