K-Rod, A-Rod, E-4

You'll be hard pressed to find anyone who saw a game end the way the Yankees-Mets game ended this evening. Mets up by 1, 2 on, 2 outs, bottom of the 9th. K-Rod facing A-Rod. A routine pop-up to 2nd baseman Luis Castillo. And nothing was routine.

Castillo dropped the ball. Derek Jeter scored easily with the tying run. Mark Teixeira ran hard from 1st base and was waved home by 3rd base coach Rob Thomson. To make matters worse for Castillo, he threw to 2nd base. Teixeira easily beat the relay home and the Yankees pulled out the most improbable victory imaginable, 9-8.
