Damn if Damion Easley didn’t do it again. For the third time in less than two weeks Easley pulled the Mets’ bacon out of the fire with a late homer.
On April 24, his homer in the 10th kept alive a game against Colorado. He homered to beat Washington last weekend. Then last night.
Jose Valentin took Kaz Matsui’s job last year when the latter was injured. With Valentin to be out for over a month, don’t bet against Easley doing the same.
