At least, that’s what it looks like in this video clip. Sure, they came from behind to beat the beleaguered Yankees in a go-nowhere season but man, at least they had some fun with it. Scratching out two runs against Mariano Rivera on three consecutive bleeders? Whatever. There are no pictures in the box score and this win might well be the highlight of their season.
As was repeated ad nauseum last night, this was the first time in his career that Mariano Rivera blew a save and failed to record an out. Just the third appearance in which he failed to get anybody out of the 1072 career appearances.
So celebrate, weak sisters of Gotham. Last night was your night, you deserve to whoop it up a little bit.
