The New York Mets are competing for a wildcard spot as the Major League Baseball season winds down. Every game from here on out is of great importance, meaning the play Atlanta’s Ender Inciarte made on Wednesday could have a profound impact on the National League playoff picture.
The Braves centerfield robbed Yoenis Cespedes of a game-winning three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to preserve a 4-3 victory. His incredible grab is one of the plays of the year considering the situation and degree of difficulty.
It’s also a reminder that Little Big League‘s ending was very disappointing to young audiences. Mets fans are now remembering just how unsatisfying it is to lose a game like this, even if there’s an appreciation for the dramatics.
