As the Mets lost some ground last night to the last place Braves, the NL West turned into an old fashion shootout between the Dodgers and Giants.
Former Met Justin Turner kicked things off and tied up the game in the 9th on an RBI single. I always liked Turner, and since the NLDS last year I always thought it was a shame that the Mets ended up letting him go. The guy turned into a spectacular hitter.
After that it was Adrian Gonzalez who took care of the gamer winner on a walk off double. Dodger Stadium went absolutely mad. I can only imagine this is reminiscent of when both teams had their great rivalry going in New York back in the 40s and 50s.
But it wouldn’t be September baseball without a bench clearing fight between Bumgarner and Puig:
The Giants just blew their 30th save of the season in quite a spectacular fashion. The Giants are going to have to pick things up and start playing like a team that wants to go to the post season and maybe stop counting on the fact that it’s an even year and a World Series is just destined to fall in their lap.
