After losing game one of a doubleheader to the Detroit Tigers to fall to 0-5 on the season, the New York Mets picked up their first win of the season in game two after a ninth-inning comeback.

Trailing 1-0 going into the ninth after not recording a hit in the game until the eighth, it looked like the Mets would fall to 0-6, keeping them out of the win column. Slugger Pete Alonso led off the ninth inning with a solo home run to tie the game to give the team new life.

After Brett Baty walked and Starling Marte advanced him to second on a bunt, Tyrone Taylor sent the Citi Field crowd home happy with a walk-off single to left field, giving the Mets their first win and making the Miami Marlins the only winless team in MLB.

The thrilling conclusion was made even more intense when John DeMarsico, SNY’s Mets director, tweeted a video of how Alonso’s home run and Taylor’s walk-off single looked from the production truck.

It’s easy to take a television broadcast for granted as a viewer. By and large, you won’t experience any issues and everything will be seamless. It’s always fascinating to get a behind-the-scenes look at just what goes into making it happen. DeMarsico and SNY did a great job here.
