Video: Mets ball boy commits big blunder

A ball boy runs across

A New York Mets ball boy inadvertently invited the wrath of Max Scherzer on Saturday night.

Scherzer pitched a dominant 7 innings, striking out 11 in his Mets’ 6-2 win over the Atlanta Braves in the second game of a doubleheader. Scherzer was getting set to face Travis d’Arnau to start the fifth when he was interrupted.

An overzealous Mets ball boy ran across the field behind the umpire to clear the on-deck circle. That caused Scherzer to stop his motion just as he was on his way to delivering a pitch.

“Oh crap!” the Braves’ announcer said.

What terrible timing by the ball boy. What was he thinking? Just about the last person whom you want to interrupt in the middle of an inning is Scherzer. He was asking for trouble.
