MORE: 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.

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.
