Mets 9th & Extra Inning Recap - Relievers Backwards, Last Chances Stranded as Mets Lose, 7-5 in 10

I’m gonna make this simple for all of us.


Also, check out Rich Sparago’s much more thorough 1st part of the May 24th game against the Mets and the Braves.


Ramiro Pena hit a grounder double on first pitch of the 9th off Bobby Parnell. Daniel Murphy couldn’t get to it, and Rick Ankiel was too far back and couldn’t get to it quick enough.

Andrelton Simmons bunted towards 3rd, no one covering 3rd, Wright goes to 1st, Pena goes to 3rd.

Jason Heyward walked.

Justin Upton grounded on on a 2-1 pitch to Ruben Tejada, who turns the 6-4-3 double play.


Anthony Varvaro stayed in.


David Wright grounds out to Simmons on a back-handed play.

Justin Upton lost his footing as he got on the warning track, but stayed with it on a wind-aided out by Lucas Duda.

And Marlon Byrd struck out to take us into extra innings.


Juan Lagares in in center, Ankiel moved over to right, Duda in left, Byrd out of the game. Brandon Lyon on the mound to face Freddy Freeman.

Freeman on 1st with a walk, after Lyon got ahead of him.

Brian McCann whistled ball by Ike Davis and it headed into the right field corner, Freeman headed to 3rd. Jordan Shafer ran for McCann.

Dan Uggla shot it into left and Atlanta took a 6-5 lead. 1st and 3rd, nobody out.

Off the bench, Chris Johnson swung through a foul tip, clung to by John Buck.

B.J. Upton, 0-4 before tonight’s encore, laid down a bunt for the safety squeeze, Shafer wasn’t heading down the line when Lyon threw the pitch, but he still scored on a very close play with John Buck blocking most of the plate with Lyon shuffling him the ball. 7-5 Braves.

Craig Kimbrel up in the bullpen.

Ramiro Pena up again, hit it to center field, Juan Lagares made an excellent shoe-string catch that was dropped in the transfer but correctly ruled a catch for the 2nd out.

Andrelton Simmons slapped it into left but Duda made the catch. Onto the bottom of the 10th.


John Buck got hit on what would have been the 4th ball of the at bat. Ike headed up to the plate.

Ike Davis looped it into left-center field. John Buck headed to 2nd. Ruben on his way up.

Tejada pop-bunted it out to new catcher Gerald Laird. 1st out. Justin Turner pinch-hit for the pitcher’s spot.

Justin Turner dribbled the ball for a 4-6-3 double play. Mets lose.


But Ike got a hit. And in a big spot.

So, there’s always a silver lining.
