Hoboken the home of baseball and a very fine Mighty Petz win

There's a special meeting tonight where the surplus will be under threat (again) by the Hoboken Sopranos but Hoboken is after all the birthplace of baseball.  Last night was one grand game where the legend of Matt Harvey continues and a walk off home run ended the game in extra innings.

Jordany Valdespin escapes the scrum (l) after hitting a walk off grand slam in the 10th inning last night at CitiField.
The win over the LA Dodgers was celebrated by a delirious Mighty Petz crowd.  (They'll make great pets.)

 More surprises at the jump


Not since Doc Gooden have the Mets had a figure like rookie Matt Harvey on the mound.  He didn't get the W
but escaped a loss seeing his ERA ballon to 1.94 with seven strikeouts in six innings.

A ball caught down the right field line in the 10th inning off Bobby Parnell via A. J. Ellis.  Thank you Bobby.
