We Needed That

Not the best seats or the best photo, but that was our vantage last night thanks to the gang at Alacra.

And Josh and I and our friends Steve and Max saw a gem of a game from Tom Glavine who got himself out of a bad streak with 8+ innings of great pitching.

We also saw Sean Green wake up from his injury related slumber. And we saw Beltran belt one over the wall too.

The best moment of the night was watching Glavine (who was 2 for 3 bringing his average this year to .333) try to get home from first on Jose Reyes’ deep shot over the center fielder’s glove. Reyes got to third before Glavine got home and he was tagged out.

Playoff quality ball was back at Shea last night. It’s been an awful stretch for us Mets fans and let’s hope this is the beginning of some better times. It sure felt like a breakout game.
