Mets Win 7-6 Over Cubs In Bottom Of Ninth

The Mets and Cubs played through the rain tonight to finish nine innings, and the Mets needed every one of them. Pedro Martinez was bad again giving up five runs over six innings, including two runs in the first inning.

Ricardo Rincon came in and gave up a first pitch homer to Micah Hoffpauir, his second homer of the night. It looked like the game and possibly the season was lost.

Surprisingly, the Mets fought back scoring runs in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings. Carlos Beltran had the big RBI single in the ninth to score Jose Reyes with the winning run.

It’s a dramatic victory that showed this team isn’t dead yet.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
