Extra Frames

The Mets and Angels went into extra innings yesterday, but the hometeam came out on top in one of the most exciting Mets games of the season. In the bottom of the ninth, the Mets were down 2-1 when Marlon Anderson had a pinch hit game tying inside the park homer to put the game into extra innings. The Angels looked to set to win it when they scored a run in the tenth on a Darin Erstad RBI single.

Then in the bottom of the tenth, Cliff Floyd came up in a huge way with a three run walk off homer. Kris Benson was awesome as he gave up only four hits in seven inning. Unfortunately he didn't get a decision. The bullpen really came through as well, as Aaron Heilman and Brandon Looper combined to throw three shutout innings to keep the Mets in the game.

The rubber game is this afternoon. Thankfully the Mets snapped their three game losing streak, and despite dropping into last place, they're still only four games. Each NL East team won their game yesterday, and the Nationals are still red hot with nine straight wins.
