Did that dude just bunt for a double? Yes, yes he did. A legit double on your scorecard. Gerardo Parra busted out the super-rare bunt double on Thursday, in a play that pretty much only the Mets could allow.
It not often you see a bunt go for a double and you've got to appreciate the hustle by Parra, who is one of the game's good guys. He would be driven home by the game's next batter, Wil Nieves.
The Mets of course lost the game, 5-4, in 15 innings. This sound effect pretty much sums up the Mets' afternoon at Citi Field on the 4th of July.
