The Cardinals out-Mets’d the Mets with game-ending blunder

first_imgMORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNMets closer Edwin Diaz entered the game in the ninth inning looking to record his 15th save of the season with his team up by two runs. After Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina singled home Paul DeJong with two outs to make it a one-run game, St. Louis opted to pinch-run for the not-so-swift-of-foot Molina. The only problem was that the Cardinals had just backup catcher/potential pinch hitter Matt Wieters available on the bench, so Jack Flaherty, their No. 2 starting pitcher, came in to run. St. Louis’ next batter, Kolten Wong, dropped a blooper into shallow right field between a lunging Michael Conforto and a sprinting Jeff McNeil, sending Flaherty barreling toward home from first. McNeil tossed the ball to a waiting Mets catcher Wilson Ramos, who casually caught it with enough time to stand up and tag out a stumbling Flaherty, who began losing his footing after rounding third. Squirrel saves the day! #MetsWin pic.twitter.com/JziQqlD0rN— New York Mets (@Mets) June 16, 2019Diaz flashed a giant smile, knowing the Cardinals had just out-Mets’d the Mets.In similar Mets fashion, plate umpire Brian O’Nora had to leave the game early after taking a pitch to the groin area. After trying to tough out the next few pitches, O’Nora was seen vomiting as he made his way through the Mets’ dugout.The Cardinals and Mets are in a delay. Home-plate umpire Brian O’Nora just ran off the field, seemingly vomiting.— Tim Healey (@timbhealey) June 16, 2019The Mets improved to 34-36 on the season. The Cardinals fell to 35-34. It’s not too hard to imagine a Mets game being decided by a baserunning blunder. It is the Mets, after all.Only on Saturday night, the Amazin’s were the beneficiary of a questionable decision on the basepaths in their 8-7 win over the Cardinals.last_img read more

Reid eyeing podium at Caribbean Jr Cycling Champs

first_imgDespite finishing a disappointing eighth at the Easter International Cycling Grand Prix, in Trinidad and Tobago in April, Kingston Criterium Junior champion, 17-year-old Brandon Reid, said the experience was an eye-opening one.He learnt a lot from the experience and has been taking steps to make the necessary improvement and he is now eyeing a podium finish at the Caribbean Junior Championship later this year.’EYE-OPENING'”That experience (Easter Grand Prix) was an eye-opening one. In the first race, my position wasn’t good and I did not place well. But in the second race, I went to the front and led for most of the way, but the guys came back and covered me in the last 150 metres.”So I now know that I have a lot more improvement to make. I need more training and I have been going to the gym and doing some more miles, but I’ll be back again next year and I will do better,” he said.With the local circuit providing little competition for this young rider in his category, his next international test will be the Caribbean Junior Championship where he will again face riders like Easter Grand Prix winner Jabari Whiteman of Trinidad and Tobago, among others. But he believes he is putting in the work and will get his just reward when the time comes.”The Easter Grand Prix is not until next year again, but I will be going to the Caribbean junior Championship in June to represent the country and I expect to get a podium finish because I have been getting more power in the legs to get that quick muscle fibre going. There are some opponents I have to watch, but as long as I put in the work, it will pay off,” he said.last_img read more
