Mets proves to be in the best NL team with the Dodgers victory

They were growing for three hours and 59 minutes, shaking and holding and counting. They’ve all made some exciting comeback. They both hit the steering wheel. Now, when the clock struck 5:10 pm and 8:10 pm, another boxer, Adonis Medina, stepped back to retrieve his running ball.

And he found. The ball bounced off Dodger’s keeper Will Smith, who then left off his bat. The tie and win were the first of the 10th. Medina, who appeared in the top 10 in her name, was the Buck Showalter’s last hope, as well as her last arm, and was asked to defend a 5-4 low-scoring 10th place finish.

And as the ball bounced away from Smith’s bat, as Smith was tossed about fruitless, as the Mets began to walk out of the team he visited Dodger Stadium, suddenly and spectacularly and clearly: He did just that. He had saved the game, and did so with a little nervous energy.

“The last person stopped, I think,” Showalter said.

“I’m always confident,” Medina later said.

Do they have? Well, it was probably JD Davis who spoke clearly on behalf of his teammates.

“Adonis Medina, father,” Davis said. “Adonis Madina!

So this big Chavez Ravine show would end with a recording, with the Mets dropping the first two games against the Dodgers, and then winning several times over the weekend and Sunday to win four games. The rest of the baseball team desperately wanted to know: Were the Mets as good as their history, or were they made with an easy-to-use system for the first season?

Can they really look at the powerful Dodgers in the eye?

As they prepared for their second, three-day, 10-day, 10-day road trip, they had given a satisfying answer. Yes. Yes, they could.

“It would be nice to take a bus to San Diego,” Davis said.

What the Mets have learned is that when they play in this game as they played in the first 56 games of the season, it doesn’t matter what logo the team has. The Mets overcame a 4-1 deficit on Saturday and then a 2-0 hole Sunday – it was 2-1, the Dodgers, in the eighth – with an open record from suppliers.

Here came Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso, passing through the eighth door to tie the game on Sunday. Here comes Davis, thrilled to move Alonso to third place and perform well (and, after that, drive in the top 10 games). Here was Eduardo Escobar, whose weather has been extremely difficult, driving on a forward journey with a sac fly that he received stiffly. And Tomas Nido adds an RBI of insurance.

And, of course, here was Adonis Madina.

Showalter opted to use the eighth Edwin Diaz with the Dodgers for sending Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner – “three MVPs,” called them – and they looked like a smart stoke. Seth Lugo then handed the homer to Smith with a two-out run-scoring single and it looked like the game could take place along with a 13-12 loss to the Giants a few weeks ago due to a dyspeptic defeat.

On the contrary?

The Mets did not need a bus for a two-hour drive to Gaslight District.

Escobar said: “It looked like a game.” We know how good the Dodger team is. But we know we are also a good team. ”

For the first time this week, Showalter has been trying to reaffirm what others might want to take over the weekend in LA. A lot of noise was all around the tour, which until the Angels got on the plane showed the three competitors for the Mets to complete. It is that little noise that enters the house of Mets.

“They don’t have wires like that,” Showalter said. “To play any game like [we played today] you must continue to embrace the competition. ”

Most of these games, however, come with a signature dedication to courage, and do small things well. Mets owner Steve Cohen – who may not need a plane to return to New York over the weekend – said more when he arrived at Dodger Stadium earlier in the week. This was not lost on his staff.

“It’s like Uncle Stevie said,” Davis said, laughing. “This team has its ups and downs.”
