Cardinals 9 Mets 5 as the Bullpen Implodes

The Thursday Night game was suspended in a 4-4 tie as wet grounds prevented the game from resuming.  The game was picked up in the bottom of the 9th inning at 6 PM on Friday, but the Cardinals scored in the top of the 10th to win 5-4.  We left the house at 6 PM, and by the time we arrived at Citi Field that game was completed.

The regularly scheduled game began at 7:10 PM with Steven Matz starting for the Mets.  The Cardinals led the game 4-2 in the middle of the 7th inning.  The Mets scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 7th and took a 5-4 lead.  Mickey Callaway brought in Jeurys Familia in the 8th inning who promptly gave up a game tieing home run to Paul DeJong.  Later in the inning, he gave up a 3-run home to Dexter Fowler to make the score 8-5.  Familia was given a 3-year $30 million contract and he has just sucked this season with a 6.75 ERA.  The Cards scored 1 more run off Hector Santiago in the 9th inning to make the final score 9-5.
