Charlie Culberson hits walk off home run vs. Mets (Video)


 

Charlie Culberson came to the plate as a pinch hitter with one on in the ninth inning and the Rockies down one to the Mets.

With one swing of his mighty bat, Culberson gave the Rockies an 11-10 win over New York.

 

 

That was a real fun game for the Mets. The were up 6-0 after four innings, just taking a little Saturday drive through the countryside.

And then in the fifth, Jenrry Mejia drove their car right off a bridge into the river. And the current carried them over a water fall.

Mejia recorded only one out in the fifth, allowing 8 earned runs. So that wasn’t a very good performance by Mejia. At all.

The scrappy Mets quickly recovered, scoring two in the top of the sixth to tie it back up. They carried a 10-9 lead into the bottom of the ninth but Kyle Farnsworth couldn’t lock it down.

Charlie Culberson played the hero for Colorado with the two run blast off the 92-year-old Farnsworth.

So the Mets couldn’t hold onto a 6-0 lead, and then they couldn’t get the save in the ninth.

The bright spot for the Mets’ pitching-wise was Daisuke Matsuzaka who gave up just one run in 2 2/3 innings of relief.

Yeah, when Dice-K is your most effective pitcher on the evening, you might have a problem.
