Hometown Hero

New York Mets Record: 44-35

C urrent Streak: L1 (WAS)

Five Infielders. That's what the New york Mets had in the decisive play of Thurday nights grudge match between the New York Mets and the Washington Nationals. It was a weird sight to see in D.C.. Left Fielder Jesus Feliciano made the move to move to the infield for a even more chance of turning two with the bases loaded and with one out and Virginian Born power-hitting Ryan Zimmerman coming up in the Bottom of the 9th. Earlier In the Game, the Nats had just tied it up 1-1 in the 7th, when Nyger Morgan hit a single to bring in Ian Desmond. That was the Turning Point. And the nats were falling head over heels after they saw another "What Zim Does" Moment. Yep,Ryan hit a fly ball to one of the best arms in the Majors,Jeff Francoeur. Jeff got it there but to late. As Willie Harris jumped up and down and Ryan got the traditional pie-in-the-face,the Mets just Stood in Aw. Their lead had suddenly evaporated. Just like in the Water Cycle. And they couldn't do anything It was about the big cumulonimbus cloud that stood above them. All they could do was watch and watch as their 35th loss sank in to the bottom of their hearts. It was a Sad moment in Mets town.
