I was so pumped about this game! Mets going for the sweep! Reyes had an awful series! Citi Field was empty, I guess being that there was a threat of rain and it was an afternoon game. I sat in section 413 behind home plate with a friend. The rain held off until later in the game. Mets jumped out to an early lead after Nieuwenhuis tripled and Tejada hit a sacrifice fly to get him home. Neise looked great even though he gave up a homer. Then...the 9th inning! Heath Bell fell apart walking 4 and I just knew the Mets would win this game! Justin Turner was an unsung hero after battling Bell on 12 pitches he walks in the tying run and then...Nieuwenhuis was the hero!! Great game!!

This game was the first in many years that the Mets fielded a starting lineup that was entirely home grown from their farm system.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
