Mets 6 Reds 3 with a Walk Off Grand Slam and Reversal of an Umpire's Call

It has been a family tradition to go to the first Saturday home game of the season.  We stopped by the Mets Hall of Fame and saw the exhibit for the late Ralph Kiner.
The game was pretty dull for 8 innings as the only highlight for the Mets was a 2 run homer by Curtis Granderson.  The same old story; good pitching and no hitting.  Going into the bottom of the 9th the Reds were leading 3-2.  Juan Lagares led off the inning by walking.  Anthony Recker tried a sacrifice bunt, but the catcher threw to second base as the umpire James Hoye called Lagares out.  Terry Collins ran out and took advantage of a new rule and called for a video review.  The out call was reverse leaving men on first and second with none out.  Ruben Tejada then walked to load the bases.  Ike Davis who lost the first base job to Lucas hit a pinch hit walk off grand slam to win the game for the Mets 6-3.
