You never think a game started by Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom is going to end up 11-10. Actually, not much of what happened at the end of last night’s Nats-Mets game was that thinkable before it began. Scherzer and deGrom had pedestrian outings… and then things got weird. Very weird.
In the end? A walk-off home run for Kurt Suzuki, giving the home team (my home team) a one-run victory. Which capped off a seven-run ninth inning rally. After letting a one-run deficit balloon to a six-run deficit in the ninth.
It was the kind of game you knew would end with a rally that came up just short. Isn’t that how it usually goes?
This one defied all logic.
