If there was ever a game the Mets were destined to lose it was today's game against the Pirates. They were down five runs. They were playing a make-up game in between two tough series and had Redding on the mound.

But somehow they came back.

Tatis finally produced. Church is showing Wright how to hit when it counts. Sean Green was sharp yet again. The defense was solid.

K-Rod had to make things too exciting, but was given a chance at redemption thanks to Church's single in the 10th.

I fully expected a loss today, but this team is painfully surprising at times. It's on to Philly. What waits for this team is anyone's guess, but one thing is for certain it won't be easy.
