On Monday night, the New York Mets entered the ninth inning trailing 2-0 against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Mets just couldn’t produce anything against Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas, and looked destined to drop the game.
To make matters worse, they were going to face Giovanny Gallegos, the Cards’ closer, known for his incredible strikeout ability.
And Gallegos was close to clearing up his own mess, because he had the Mets at two outs.
A run had already scored, in part because of a rare Nolan Arenado fielding blunder.
When Dom Smith stepped to the plate with runners on second and third, he hit the ball hard towards first base.
Paul Goldschmidt had some issues fielding the ball, but still appeared to have to make the play.
Gallegos, however, was a bit late to covering the base, and Smith was safe.
The game was tied when the runner at third scored upon the ball leaving Smith’s bat.
But Jeff McNeil, who was at second, scored from the keystone.
An Incredible Comeback
The Mets were up 3-2!
Brandon Nimmo later hit a two-run home run to make things 5-2, and that would be the final score.
The win probability gods weren’t on the Mets’ side… until the ninth inning.
Look at this incredible chart.
There’s a lot of fight in this team. 💪 #LGM
