Either New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy got lucky or he converted one of the more creative put-outs you will see all season.
It is rare that a booted groundball in the 9th inning of a one-run game turns out to be a good thing, but that is exactly what happened for Murphy here.

The Mets went on to win this game in dramatic walk-off fashion. That makes this out at second base, no matter how goofy or fluky, an important one as it set up the Mets to eventually pull this one out in the bottom of the 9th inning.
Hey, it’s a 4-3 putout in the score book, right?
