The New York Mets shocked the world with their seven-point comeback against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Phils had led 7-0 in the top of the sixth inning before the Mets retired a run.
But in the ninth, chaos was unleashed and the Mets stormed back, shocking the crowd at Citizens Bank Park and taking Game 1 of the series from the Phillies.
Needless to say, the Mets were all smiles after their spectacular victory from behind.
Outfielder Brandon Nimmo was asked how the Mets fared, and he had some very important advice for any team facing such a large deficit in the latter stages of a game.
Brandon Nimmo: “If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.”

This is great advice.
And clearly, the Mets had that mindset as they started the ninth 7-1.
But it’s true.
If the Mets hadn’t believed in themselves, there’s no way this comeback would have been possible.
But that’s why you play the matches until the final.
You never know what will happen.
Even a six-run ninth-inning lead isn’t safe when you face these Mets.
It was certainly a wild ride, but also a momentum and a confidence factor.
It’s clear the Mets are adopting the attitude of a team that believes they are the best in all of baseball.
If New York had any doubts, those critics were silenced, at least for now.
The Mets are on an absolute warpath.
Any team is going to have a tough challenge against these Mets.
They want to prove to the baseball world that they are a good team capable of winning the World Series.
