After the Mets opened the season by getting swept by the Nationals, it was all doom and gloom around Citi Field. New season, same old Mets. Well, maybe not. The Mets got back on track winning back-to-back game against the Reds. And in the case of the second W, they did it in dramatic fashion.
Heading in to the bottom of the ninth, the Mets were down 3-2. But New York loaded the bases for pinch hitter Ike Davis — and he seized the opportunity. Davis jacked the only thing more exciting than a walk-off home run: a walk-off grand slam!
Is this the start of something big for the Mets? Maybe. (New York lost the third game of the series on Sunday, 2-1.) But Mets fans know better than to get their hopes up too early in the season.
