* The Happy WALK OFF Nightcap *
• Mets 6 - Cardinals - 5 •
Angel Pagan's pop powers the NY Mets to a walk off win over the Cardinals. The Mets turned around a rough start by R.A. Dickey into a bottom of the 10th victory. By the bottom of the 3rd Dickey and the Mets were trailing 4-0; but battery- mates Dickey and Josh "New Papa" Thole each drove in a run to cut the lead in half.

The Mets tied the game in the bottom of the 5th with a 2 out, 2 run, upper deck blast by Carlos "Enjoy Him While You Can Folks" Beltran. Beltran's blast came close to landing in SNY's special Pepsi Porch booth. The ball left the yard so quickly Mets Blob feared for Gary Cohen's life. No worry - unless Keith Hernandez was engrossed in a Citi Field Taco, the Gold Glover would have snatched the ball before it made contact with Cohen's Lindsey Nelson inspired shorts.

The game remained tied until the top of the 8th when Gerald Laird laid down a pretty bunt to bring the go ahead run in from third. Laird was inspired to bunt by Daniel Murphy who, for reasons known only to Daniel Murphy and Canadian Geese, was positioned in short left field. In the bottom of the 8th Thole brought Pagan in from third with a clutch 2 out single to pull the Mets even.

The game remained tied until the bottom of the 10th when Angel Pagan drilled a one out game winning home run that smashed off the Subway sign in deep right. Pagan's teammates mobbed him at the plate and the Citi Field faithful went home happy.
The Mets were given the opportunity to steal this game thanks to terrific relief work from Pedro Beato and Jason Isringhausen. Beato got Albert Pujols to pop up in the 7th, stranding a man on third; and Izzy pitched a scoreless 9th and 10th.

  1. Blob,

    Keith's gold fingers would have caught that ball, saving Cohen's balls so tightly wrapped in those sexy shorts, but it would have slipped out of his greasy fingers and popped Ronnie in the eye, alas, the Mets medical staff would make him wear a Pirate's patch for the remainder of the year ... arrrggggh
