WALKOFF WALK

Jose Reyes singled for the Mets with two outs in the bottom of the 9th of a 4-4 game. Everyone knew he was going to steal, so Wuertz threw to first a number of times, before delivering a pitchout to Endy Chavez, but Reyes was safe at 2nd anyway. Three more balls to Chavez put runners on 1st & 2nd. Carlos Beltran received three straight balls before being intentionally walked. The Shea crowd was going crazy as Carlos Delgado fought through a ten pitch at bat, before Michael walked him too, forcing in the winning run. 5-4 Mets over the Cubbies.

Later I was watching Greg Maddux on TV dispose of the Cincinnati Reds in a complete game, little over 90 pitch gem. The Reds announcers said that Maddux has only gotten to a 3-0 count on 18 batters, in his career, AMAZING!
