You can't write this stuff! From almost-traded to team hero! Wilmer Flores hits walk-off HR!!!!

I promise baseball is not scripted but mannnn you could not have written a better ending to tonight's game. The NL-East second place Mets played the first place Nationals in the most important series of the season to date. It was also the first game for Wilmer Flores after his almost-trade on Wednesday that left him in tears during the middle of a game.

In the first inning, Flores performs a beautiful diving catch that earns him a standing ovation from the crowd.

In his next at bat he drives in the first run of the game for the Mets with an RBI single and the crowd loses their shit. It felt like a playoff game.

The Nationals tie and the game is 1-1 as we go to extra-innings. Bryce Harper is ejected in the 11th inning for arguing a (bad) call. On to the bottom of the 12th. Wilmer Flores is the first batter up and on the third pitch hits this bomb to give the Mets the 2-1 win over the Nats.

Every time Flores came to plate in tonight's game (5 times in total I believe), he received a standing ovation from the home crowd. This week has been an absolute emotional roller coaster for the young Flores but it must feel great to know the entire city is on his side.
