Mets Game Recap: Mets 7 Cardinals 8
July 28, 2010
First let me say that I was at tonight’s game along with a bunch of my fellow Mets bloggers. I’ll have more on this tomorrow but I left the game at the end of the 7th inning to begin my long trek back home in New Jersey. I got home just in time to see Albert Pujols single in the game winning run in the 13th inning.

Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the top the the 13th inning when Albert Pujols singled in the game winning run. The Mets battled back from a 6 run deficit to tie the game in the bottom of the 8th but the Cardinals eventually were able to pull out the win.
