Milwaukee's Finest

* Tuesday's game was the 179th Mets road extra-inning win, their fourth this season (yes, we're charting those now too).

* It's the Mets first road extra-inning win in Milwaukee in team history.

* The last person to hit a game-winning sacrifice fly in a road extra-inning win for the Mets (before Endy Chavez) was in Miller Park on Tuesday. Mike Cameron had one for the Mets against the Pirates, September 18, 2004.

* The Mets last 6-5 road extra-inning win prior to this one featured an unusual game-winning hit, a Rey Ordonez home run to beat the Marlins in the 10th inning, on May 31, 2002.

* This was the 6th time this season that a Mets pitcher got a win, while pitching 1/3 of an inning. That is a franchise record, breaking the previous mark of five such regular season wins in 2000.

*Lastly, Here are some minutiae bits on Daniel Murphy that came into play Tuesday (thanks BB-Reference).

- He's 7-for-11 with three walks in plate appearances that came in a tie game.
- He's 3-for-7 with four walks as a pinch-hitter.
- He's 11-for-27 (.407 BA) with eight walks when batting in the 7th inning or later.
(That includes a current streak of 8 consecutive times reaching base)
- He's 13-for-27 (.481 BA) with six walks against relief pitchers.
- He's 15-for-41 (.366 BA) away from Shea Stadium.
- He's 15-for-44 (.341 BA) with eight walks with no one on base.
- The Mets are 19-10 when he plays (13-5 when he starts)

The best Mets ejections I know

When you think of the Mets and famous ejections, I'm guessing you first think of the famous Bobby Valentine mustache game, when after Valentine got tossed, he returned to the dugout in disguise. You know it. You love it. I remember being amused when I asked Bobby V about it while we were working on Baseball Tonight, how he simply said "It worked. We won the game." (true) But the Bobby V mustache game of June 9, 1999 is one of many, many memorable Mets ejection stories. And now thanks to Retrosheet and the magic of , we have a convenient means for being able to share them. Ever since Retrosheet's David Smith recently announced that the Retrosheet ejection database was posted online , I've been a kid in a candy store. I've organized the data and done some lookups of media coverage around the games that interested me post. Those newspaper accounts fill in a lot of blanks. Without further ado (and with more work to do), here are some of my findings
