FIRST EVER METS INSTANT REPLAY CHALLENGE IS A SUCCESS! Hopefully Ike can take his 9th inning home run, and make it a postive.

My first visit to Citi in 2014 and it was a PUT IT IN THE BOOKS AND THEN SOME!!!! Partly sunny and 52 degrees but windy (I don't know why Citi Field didn't get a retractable roof, it would make it more comfortable on those cold April days but it is what it is). If life were fair, the Coupons would've ordered a RR but then again ILWF, I would be soaking in a jacuzzi with Kaitlyn Monte. Thank you Ike Davis for the walkoff Grand Slam in the 9th!!!

I listened to the radio broadcast. Gee pitched a good game; went into the 8th. Besides Curtis Granderson's first home run for the Mets in the 6th, the Mets bats were quiet for most of the game, spoiling a good pitching performance.
Down 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth, Lagares walked, bringing up my man Recker. I was like, all right buddy, show everyone how clutch you are. But Terry Collins had him bunting, which makes sense I guess. His bunt led to a close play at second base, and an out call. For a second, things looked bad, but then Terry ran out of the dugout and challenged the call. The Mets won the challenge, and Tejada walked. Then-
Ike came up and hit the slam. Man, that was awesome. I loved Josh Lewin's call- it was something like- "the forgotten man! Ike Davis! We remember you buddy!"

The 0-1, curve, socked in the air to right field- that's up- that's to the track, that's to the wall- A SLAM! BALLGAME! DAVIS WINS IT! ... (noise of crowd cheering) ...THEY'RE GONNA MOB HIM- THEY'RE GONNA MOB HIM AT HOME PLATE! THE METS WIN IT ON A WALK-OFF SLAM, FROM THE FORGOTTEN MAN! IKE DAVIS! WE REMEMBER YA KID! THEY'RE JUMPIN' ON HIM AT HOME PLATE! THE METS WIN! ... HOME RUN, RIGHT FIELD, IKE DAVIS, AND YOUR FINAL IS 6 TO 3!
Ike was traded yesterday. We'll remember ya, kid. Thanks for the memories.

Ike's final HR as a Met and it was literally in grand fashion.
