Dugout Digest – a very Mets walk off

When the Mets are involved in a walk off win, chances are that it won’t be normal. Last Saturday, Ike Davis hit a grand slam to push New York past the Reds. Last night, Jeurys Familia had a chance to allow the same walk off to Hank Conger – but instead, he surpassed all of that drama and just plunked Conger instead to give the Angels a 5-4, 11 inning win.
