Walk-Off win #336 was a bit of an adventure, eh? * It was the 5th walk-off win this calendar month. My initial research indicates that is a first in franchise history * It was the first to go at least 16 innings since that 1-0, 17-inning Kenny Greer only MLB win classic against the Cardinals on September 29, 1993 * It's the longest decided by a HR since Dave Kingman hit one in the last of the 17th to beat the Expos on June 10, 1983 * It's the second to go exactly 16 innings. The only other took place on September 1, 1963, won on a two-run HR in the 16th by Tim Harkness. By coincidence, just a few days ago, I received an e-mail from an attendee of this game. * It is the 8th decided by a 9-8 score (we had one last year- Mike Piazza walk-off walk vs Milwaukee on August 2, 2005) * Carlos Beltran is the 3rd Met to go 3-for-7 and collect a walk-off hit, joining the previously mentioned Harkness and Del Unser (September 16, 1975, 18-inning walk-off walk vs Expos) * It's the first
A blog devoted to cataloguing New York Mets walk-offs and other trivia. For those unaware of the definition of walk-off just replace the term with the words "game-ending" and you should have a much better understanding of the phrase.
