It’s arguably a many sparkling play in baseball, and it happened on Wednesday night during the Mets’ 9-4 win over a Phillies during Citi Field.
Ruben Tejada strike an inside-the-park homer.
With a curtain on second and dual outs in a second inning, Tejada strike a shoal cocktail fly down a right-field line. Domonic Brown charged in and reached down though could not make a catch, and a round bounced by him as he flipped conduct over heels over a low maintaining wall.
Second baseman Cesar Hernandez finally chased down a round in a right-field corner, and Tejada slid home safely though a send chuck to a plate.
“Things only seem to occur when we play a Mets,” Phillies halt manager Pete Mackanin said.
It was formidable to tell what partial of his physique Brown landed on. But after a play, he climbed over a wall and behind onto a margin as a Phillies tutor hustled out to check on him.
Brown primarily remained in a game, though was private in a bottom of a fourth.
The home run was Tejada’s third of a year. He finished a night 2-for-4 with 4 RBIs and is hitting .257 for a season.
The Nationals degraded a Cardinals on Wednesday night, so a Mets’ lead in a National League East stays 6 1/2 games.
