METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 13, 2006 GAME:Steven G.
December 19, 2012
David Wright saved this game. In the bottom of the ninth, with the Mets up by two and Billy Wagner on the mound, Mets nemesis Pat Burrell came to the plate with a runner on first. Burrell hit a smash down the third base line that looked like an extra-base hit off the bat. Wright dove for it, but the ball hit the dirt in front of the bag and took a weird bounce. Reacting instantly, Wright reached up and grabbed it (maybe with his bare hand), got up and fired the ball to the second baseman, who threw on to first for the double play. I still remember the incredulous call by Harry Kalas: "Are you kidding me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??"
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
