Mets GIF Of The Game: Marlon Byrd hit in the butt, Eric Young scores and jumps, and Jenrry Mejia strikes out seven

Relay throw hits Marlon Byrd in the butt

In the bottom of the first, Ike Davis's opposite-field double down the line sent Marlon Byrd from first to third. The relay throw — which drew much criticism from Keith Hernandez for Troy Tulowitzki being out of position — bounced once and struck Byrd right in the keister (h/t @_mistermet and @chrismcshane).

Eric Young scores go-ahead run, jumps for joy

In the bottom of the eighth, Eric Young scored from second with the go-ahead run on Juan Lagares's infield single. Young was kind of excited about it (h/t @tomthirtysix).

Jenrry Mejia strikes out seven
