The Ninth Inning Of Today's Mets-Giants Game Was About The Worst Ever

The Mets tried valiantly to lose today's matinee against the Giants, only to have their LOLMets returned twofold. An outfield blunder by Ruben Tejada and Kirk Nieuwenhuis on what should have been the final play of the game in the top of the ninth allowed San Francisco to tie the game, but the Giants (thanks to having Aubrey Huff playing a clueless—if "for the first time ever in his career"—second base and a Buster Posey throwing error) ended up allowing Tejada to score in the bottom of the frame. Tallied up, it's a three-run lead squandered, three defensive mistakes, and the ugliest ninth inning we've seen in the majors for some time.
