The Mets were dead to rights Rivera on the mound with 2 outs and 2 strikes. The game is over.
But somehow the unexpected happened. The Mets season could have been done. Going 2 under .500 with a West coast road trip coming may have put theMets too far under to recover. But Ronnie Paulino came through against the greatest closer in history. The Mets showed patience at the plate. The bullpen held on. And the biggest surprise? Jason Bay came through in the clutch.
Losing 2 out of 3 at home is nothing to be happy about, but Sunday's win was an unbelievable comeback that hopefully this team can build on.
