big deal for the mets to give up that lead in the ninth and still manage to win the ball game. len: yeah. ground ball towards right. carpenter the spinning play to get zobrist. jim: not a lot of pace ground ball. but carpenter with a fine play. len: by the way, for those of you who love the wind or hate the wind, familia gave up two runs in the ninth to send that game to extras. he gets the pitching win for the mets. because them's the rules. that's going to go fair.

a chance to clinch tomorrow. otherwise it will happen on the home stand. len: bounced to first foul. jim: early game tomorrow 12:45 first pitch. jon lester 16-4 with a 2.51 agains he has been their best. 14-7 with a 3.05. len: outside corner. it is 0-2. jim: bowman in his minor league career coming up through the mets system. almost exclusively a starting
a lot of times it is difficult for a contending team to carry a rule five draft pick. you take a maker in the rule five draft, he has to stay on your major league roster the entire year or you have to offer him back to the team you drafted him from. so, that's an easy thing for teams not in contention. you prefer to carry a guy who might not be major league ready but they identified this guy as ready to contribute and he's had a nice year. len: hector rondon a few years ago was a rule five pick taken by the cubs. shallow center but it will hold up for grichuk. jim: 30-man roster -- 40-man roster they can protect and then in that rule five draft, players have to have a certain amount of
eligible to be drafted. so, people can be drafted and players can be drafted on the february roster and they have to be kept in triple-a. len: good timing because last year prior to 2015, willson contreras was exposed to that rule five draft. he remained in the organization. won a battle title at became one of the top catching prospects if the game. jim: there's been a lot of conversation around major league baseball within the industry people saying how did they miss on this guy. he was out there. they had a chance to draft him. and likewise the cubs with a big exhale saying we got away with one. len: and i don't know if there was anything to miss because
look at his profile and his numbers, there wasn't anything that jumped out. sometimes it just happens. and the light goes on. as he grounds back to bowman. jim: but when you watch contreras play now, you do wonder -- len: i can't imagine him not being an above average player at any level. jim: even if the numbers and the performance once there, if you were paying attention and scouting these guys, you would see the skill set. you like the body, the way he throws the ball, certainly would have intrigued you. minor league career he got better and better in terms of walking more frequently.

len: cardinals lead the cubs 4-2. here's felix pena. a rookie right-hander pitching for the seventh time. jim: 4.1 innings of work. he allowed two runs in a third of an inning in his second big league appearance. that was in san diego back on august 23rdrdrd. otherwise he has pitched scoreless baseball. runs in a t of an len: fastballs and sliders from felix.
5-3 with a 2.92 e.r.a. home runs nine in 52.1. he's walked a fair number of batters. jim: he hasn't been good this year as he had been in the past. last year he allowed four home runs all year in 74.2 innings. he is a lefty, but always been good against right-handed hitters because they have an outstanding changeup. velocity this year down a tick or two from when he first showed up in the big leagues with the cardinals back in 2013. len: gave up three home runs in
days at wrigley field last october. anthony rizzo hit two and kyle schwarber's video board blast. siegrist after fowler a swing and a miss 0-2. jim: gave up a game winner the other day to ryan braun when the brewers were here. len: ninth inning, cardinals. inside. dexter a home run to start the ball game. then walked twice. was called out. looking at a pitch well off the plate last time up. jim: looks like oh is unavailable as the cardinal
sort of match-up situation. i think matheny wants kevin siegrist to get the save tonight. jim: oh no, or no oh. len: the post dispatch might want the hire you tonight to write some headlines. jim: no go for oh. no len: two balls, two strikes. big leg kick by siegrist. jam shot bouncer back to the mound. one out. hyundai player of the game. wasn't always pretty but alex reyes, the rooker right-hander. he walked six in 4.1 but he
jim: teetering. one swing of the bat and it would have been a different story. bottom line he allowed nothing in 4.1. pitched around six walks. len: cubs need a base runner to get the tying run to the plate. or maybe back-to-back home runs. that would work too. jim: they entered the ball game with the bases loaded, two out in the second and struck out
len: 1-1 pitch. out in front. pulled it foul. yankees shut out the dodgers 3-0. mariners are hot. they got another lead in anaheim 4-0 in the fourth. as the m's look for their seventh consecutive win. agai sox. blue jays lost at home 6-2 to tampa bay. the royals have caught the jays and both those teams two back of boston in the east. still 2-2.
minnesota. so, they are now two out in the wild card. we talked about this earlier. are you rooting for like a six-way tie? jim: yes. absolutely.
