Mets Blog published story saying Mets won 4-2; Dodgers came back and won 5-4 in 12
SNY TV’s Mets Blog tempted fate on Wednesday night by publishing a story prior to the game’s end saying the Mets beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2, and the move backfired.
Mets Blog published the story at 1:16 a.m. ET prior to the Dodgers coming up to bat in the ninth inning. Andre Ethier hit a pinch-hit 2-run home run to tie the game, and then Adrian Gonzalez provided a walk-off hit to end the game 5-4 in the 12th.
Mets Blog pulled the story after Ethier’s home run tied the game, but you can see it below:
The Dodgers have now gone 40-8 over their last 48 games, which is second only to the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals for a 48-game stretch. They have won 12 straight 1-run games and are an incredible 23-3 since the all-star break.
The Dodgers have eight straight wins and 13 victories in their last 14 contests. No team is hotter than the Dodgers. I guess the folks at Mets Blog missed that point.
