This is it. It's do or die. Fourth and inches. First and goal. The Mets have their backs against the wall. They're between a rock and a hard place. There's no turning back. They're down to their last chance. They've gotta lay it all on the line. All of their chips are on the table. Gotta leave it all out there on the field. It's only one game. Take it one game at a time. One inning at a time. One at-bat, one pitch at a time. Just go out there and execute their game plan. This is why they play the games folks. They're in it to win it. They're still very much alive. They're still in the mix. They have to run the table. They have to win out. They have to remember what got them here. They control their own destiny. This team has a chance to do something special. They're not just happy to be here. In the playoffs anything can happen. They have to do the things they've been doing all season. A win tonight will force a decisive game seven. They're behind the eight ball. They're in a must-win situation. They need a win to stave off elimination. This is for all the marbles. There's no tomorrow. If you lose, you go home. They're down but not out. It's go time.
