Baseball is a crazy game.
Time and time again, we think we have it mapped out, but we don’t.
That’s what the unexpected happens.
And that’s what happened last night in Philadelphia, when the New York Mets erased a seven-run deficit and came back to beat their division rivals, the Philadelphia Phillies.
New York had scratched out a run in the top of the sixth, but most of the damage was done in the top of the ninth, when the Mets put up a seven-spot to take the lead.
Prior to last night’s jaw-dropping comeback, New York had lost their previous 330 games over the last 25 seasons when trailing by six or more entering the ninth inning.
The Mets score 7 runs in the top of the 9th to come back and beat the Phillies.

Mets Stun Phils
The Mets made some history last night, and it came less than a week after they had thrown a combined no-hitter against the Phils.
This Mets’ team might just be built different.
They accomplished something that had not been done in 25 years.
Rarely do you see a comeback this epic, but the Mets pulled it off and stunned the crowd at Citizens Bank Park.
That’s one way to prove to the baseball world that your team means business.
This team is proving to be a juggernaut that is capable of pulling off anything, no matter how insurmountable it may seem.
Not even a 7-0 lead is too much for these Mets.
Certainly, being down six to start the ninth after they had previously picked up one run isn’t too much either.
How did they do this, you ask?
Aside from having a never say die attitude and not quitting even when all odds are against them, this team is just built different from previous Mets’ teams.
This team is battle tested and battle scary.
