I’m starting to feel like that Indians fan from the movie “Major League”.
Indians Fan #1: No way, too high. Too high.
Indians Fan #2: “Too high”? What does that mean. “too high”?
Indians Fan #1: Too high, I thought. Because of the trajectory of the ball, it looked way too high.

You know it was hit hard, if the pitcher (Lugo) and catcher looks up like gophers and the pitcher doesn’t even react. That happened way too often.
But before the game, it’s nice to see the players still interacting with the fans for autographs.
But the game itself. Clockwise , from upper left.
- Nice play on a Jay Bruce liner to second
- Liner by Granderson, to right. Great sliding play not pictured (queue Indians drums)
- Granderson realizing how the game was going to go
- Nice play at second by Reynolds on a grounder in the hole
- Intensity at the plate by Cespedes
- One of the errors by the Mets on grounder to second (queue Indians drums)
- Nice play at short on a grounder
- Armchair General of the Mets assessing the situation
- Cespedes again
- Nice play at second, again by Reynolds
- Granderson lining up a shot up the middle for a single
- (Bottom) d’Arnaud looking the fastball into the mit.
- Wilmer Flores looking the ball into the mit.
- Nice turn at second, for the double play
- Nice backing up the right fielder, by Comforto
- d’Arnaud, late on the high heat (queue Indians drums)
- (center on way up) Granderson and Comforto have a moment
- Just out of reach by the shortstop on a hard hit grounder in the hole.
- Mariners love their big Canadian pitcher (except when they goto Mt Rainier)
- Reyes hit on forearm by a pitch. (queue “Wild thing, you make my heart sing…”)
- Throw back to first
- Another error by the Mets, Cespedes loses a fly in the high sun (queue Indians drums)
- (center) Rip by Cano, over first baseman.
Seriously, they might have been trying to climb the barbed wire last night.
