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