MLB: New York Mets at San Francisco Giants John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

If you were sleeping, the Mets played one of the craziest games of baseball in recent memory. Down 8-2, the Mets clawed their way back in the late innings, including a seven run 8th inning to take the lead twice, only to have Edwin Diaz blow a save in the bottom of the ninth, as the Mets lost the game 13-12. The rubber match of the three-game series will be this afternoon as the Mets look to avoid losing their second series of the season.
