Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the bottom of the 8th inning when Angel Pagan turned a single into a hustle double. That allowed Carlos Beltran to single him in to tie the game 5-5 which eventually led to Luis Castillo’s game winning hit in the bottom of the 9th. The Mets don’t win tonight without Pagan’s hustle double.
