Video: Justin Turner's Clutch PA That Set the Stage for the New York Mets Sweep of the Miami Marlins
In case you missed Thursday's game at Citi Field, the New York Mets swept the Miami Marlins in grand fashion, coming back to rally for two runs in the bottom of the 9th inning off former Met Heath Bell.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis was the hero, as the rookie center fielder lined a two-out gamewinning RBI single over the head of Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton for the walkoff winner.
However, the turning point of the game (no pun intended) was Justin Turner' pinch-hit, 13-pitch plate appearance two batters prior, in which he drew a walk to drive in the tying run.
Turner's had a knack for coming up clutch in big spots in his Mets career, and today was no different.
Bell, just like his former Met teammate Jose Reyes signed a big money deal in the offseason with Miami, was a total bust in his return to Citi Field this week.
How sweep it is!
