What would have been a four game sweep over the Mets by the San Francisco Giants was blown by a missed call by home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi.
A critical play at home was shown by television replays to be a clear call that should have given the Giants the game but instead, the game was handed to the Mets.
If called properly that would have been Met’s closer Francisco Rodriguez’s fifth blown save and the fourth straight loss to the Giants! Honestly, for saving Rodriguez from the embarrassment and the Mets from that bad of a sweep, who could blame the ump? Sometimes your heart just reaches out for the underdog.
After 10 innings, the Mets were more than happy to take their 4-3 victory over the Giants.
