An unbelievably thrilling 9th inning led to a 3-2 Homegrown-Mets win, sweeping the Store-Bought Marlins out of town.
What can you say about Turner's At-Bat? I was pacing back and forth at work, exclaiming after every foul ball. He laid off all the breaking pitches and didn't let the strikes go by him. Fantasic. I went to softball with a smile on my face rather than an "Oh Well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad." I woulda been lying to myself, however. In this instance, coming off of that Giants series and with the heightened emotions of Reyes returning, I feel it was sweep or bust. Awesome.
And props to Ramon Ramirez for 2 scoreless innings.
I am traveling to Denver this weekend to see some friends, some family, and some Mets. Saturday and Sunday I will be at Coors Field. I want a 14 on the left side of the column by the time I get home. Keep it up, Orange and Blue.
LET'S. GO. METS.
