Bay To The Rescue, Mets Win In Walk-Off Fashion

It took ten innings, but the Mets were finally able to get a win out of this Subway Series. They beat the Yankees by a score of 3-2.

  • With the bases loaded in the bottom of the tenth, Jason Bay had the game winning hit with a single to right field.
  • R.A. Dickey went five innings before leaving with a tight left glute. I can't make this up, folks. Dickey allowed one run on two hits, while striking out three and walking two. He retired the first eight batters to start the game.
  • Jason Isringhausen allowed the Yankees second run to score in the eighth inning. After giving up a triple to Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson drove him home on a sacrifice fly to right field.
  • The Mets first run of the game was in the first inning on an RBI single off the bat of Daniel Murphy. Murphy finished the day going 3-4 at the plate.
  • Facing Mariano Rivera with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Jason Bay drew a walk and advanced to second on a single by Lucas Duda. Ronny Paulino, pinch-hitting for Josh Thole, then singled to drive home Bay and tie the game. Ruben Tejada then reached on a fielding error by Ramiro Pena. Duda was waived home on the play and thrown out at the plate, sending the game to extra innings.
  • The Mets announced that Jose Reyes has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, which according to Sandy Alderson, is the most benign strain. Reyes will be watched over the next few days, but as of right now, he will not be placed on the disabled list. It's not clear, however, when exactly he will play next. According to Alderson, they will see how he feels in next few days, and according to Terry Collins, he may not play until after the All-Star game. In other one knows.

Next up: The Mets head west to take on the Dodgers. Chris Capuano will get the start for New York. Game time is 9:1o p.m.
