The bottom of the 5th.
Even if you truly dislike the Dog Ass Mets, you had to feel for their young pitcher.
Jacob deGrom simply could not get that 3rd out, and the Kansas City Royals just smacked him around like a ragdoll.
Walk single single ground out line drive out single single single ground out.
I shortened the damage with that sentence, but at the end of that sentence there were 4 runs and KC never looked back.
Because on the other side was ex-Red Johnny Cueto calmly going the distance and giving up only 2 hits to Lucas Duda all. Night. Long.
The Dog Ass Mets had the long flight back to NY and surely are welcoming the night off.
Had the Tuesday night game not gone over 5 hours with the Mets using 6 pitchers, don't you think deGrom would have been lifted earlier before all that mental damage was done?
He looked like a boxer on the brink of going down - you could see the little birds flying around his head.
Like Samson, maybe they cut off all his hair and he's got nothing left.
We'll see in game 6.
If it goes that long.
