Thor set the tone for this game with the first pitch. Up and in. Knock him on his butt. Ready to roll. His six innings were about as good as your could ask out of him, victimized by some funky fielding and bloop hits. But getting Alex Rios out with the bases loaded? A true gut-check moment for him and for the Mets. Definitely the biggest tipping point in the game, and Syndergaard came up big. I like that Terry Collins stuck with the young pitcher in the tough spot — and had it pay off.
Wright and Granderson powered the Mets to a strong offensive game, something the Mets sorely lacked in Games 1 and 2. Also, welcome back Juan Uribe! Dude hasn’t faced major league pitching in over a month? No bother… here’s an RBI single in the World Series.
Pretty much everyone contributed to the Mets offensive outburt in some way, outside of Sports Illustrated cover star Daniel Murphy. He had to cool off eventually, right?
