Cincinnati could still win with a run in its half of the ninth. Oester got a one-out single, and went to second on a grounder by new catcher Sal Butera. Sisk intentionally walked Venable to get the righty-righty match-up against Buddy Bell. He popped up to Knight, standing on the bag at third, producing the rare fly-out/force-out.
The celebration/near forfeit after the Mattingly HR was surreal.
#17 Holy crap now that's a web gem.
It's a shame they never show a wider angle -- I would have loved to see Mex's positioning and at what point he charged in.
You catch a glimpse of Hernandez up next to the pitcher's mound on the replay at 2:30. The Mets are expecting Willis to bunt and then on top of that he tips it (when Orosco checks second base for the second time), so Hernandez could be pretty confident in committing himself to the charge.
One of the classic "necessity is the mother of invention" lineups
The position player he lifted was Diaz, his luckless catcher.
