David Wright said it was the kind of game that helps a team regain its swagger. Not once in 24 games this season when they trailed after the eighth inning have the Mets come back; they did it twice tonight.
After Oliver Perez coughed up a 4-1 lead, Endy Chavez tied the game with a homer in the ninth. Florida regained the lead in the 12th on its fourth homer of the game, but Fernando Tatis won it with a two-run double.
“These are the type of games that could jumpstart us,’’ Wright said.
The Mets had said things like that before this year, but this time there was a sense it could really happen.
The room will be open all night. Let’s hear what you have to say.
