Yes that is a Pegasus. You honestly would stand a better chance of seeing one of them than what im about to tell you. Ill separate it into two statements just to give each its due merritt:
1) The Mets hit TWO grand slams tonight
2) One of the Mets to hit the grand slam…is JASON BAY!!!
Yeah…I wouldn’t believe it either if someone told me but it happened! Mets pounded the Tigers 14-3 to FINALLY climb above .500 for the first time since April! As usual, Jose Reyes got the party started with a single in the 1st. Willie Harris and Carlos Beltran popped out but Jose advanced on Beltrans. Daniel Murphy doubled to drive Reyes home and Angel followed suit with a double of his own to drive in Murphy. Bay grounded out to finish the inning. R.A. Dickey was awesome the whole night, going 7 innings and giving up two runs on solo shots. Fast forward to the 4th where Josh Thole hit a solo shot to put the Mets ahead 3-0. Jose would triple on the very next pitch and so would Harris to drive in Jose. Beltran would single to move Harris to second and Murph would single to drive in Harris. On a wild pitch, both runners advanced and Angel drew a walk. Then
hell froze over Jason Bay hit the grand slam. Duda would end the inning but by the end of that one, Mets were up 7-0.
In what is the most appropriate representation of tonights game, the very next inning started off with a walk to Justin Turner. Thole would strike out but Jose(again) would double to move Turner to 3rd. Willie Harris got hit by the pitch and wouldnt you know it…Carlos Beltran hit the Mets 2ND GRAND SLAM OF THE NIGHT! This put the Mets up 13-0 and pretty much sealed the deal. Mets would score once more in the 8th but what the hell…METS HIT 2 GRAND SLAMS IN ONE GAME!! 36 runs in their last 3 games, 1st grand slam since 2009, second time in team history to hit 2 grand slams in a game, 4 hits for Reyes(another multi-hit game and 15th triple) and last but not least finally over .500 at 40-39.
