6 runs in the 8th inning!!
Who do the Mets think they are? Kind of reminds me of the 2000 Mets with the fight these guys show night in and night out. This ball club can come from behind to win. We’re coming off a weekend of back to back walk off home run wins. Who would’ve thought the stupid slogan for the 2010 season (We Believe In Comebacks) would ring so true this season.
Now, I’m pretty sure the 2006 Mets weren’t very adept at this skill and they are still considered by many to be the gold standard of Mets teams in the past decade. For the past few years, the Mets have lived by the mantra: score lots of runs early, hold the lead, win. But they were never the team that was able to come from behind late in a game.
This 2010 Mets team however, shows a ton of fight and does possess the ability to come from behind to win games. I like this type of team better. They are gamers. They are here to play a full 9 innings. They are winners.
The icing on the cake tonight is Ike’s third flip catch over the dugout railing.
To honor the winners I will link to the MLB.com video of Chris Carter (the anti-Catalanatto) hitting the RBI double that put the Mets in the lead.
