Clutch-Tron: Mets 5, Marlins 4

That. Was. Awesome! It doesn't even matter that Luis Ayala almost blew the whole thing in the bottom of the ninth. This is what you live for. Last at-bat, two outs, nobody on. A couple of singles and a scrappy HBP load the bases. Carlos Beltran strolls to the plate, the import of a tight pennant race and a season's worth of non-clutch blog comments weighing heavily on his mind. Does the patient Beltran take a few pitches to work the count into his favor? No. He doesn't. The count is already in his favor, he remarks to himself. A first-pitch offering from Kevin Gregg is en route, and Beltran shifts his weight and calmly crushes the pitch into the right-field stands. Mets 5, Marlins 2 3 4.
