Javier Baez’s game-winning run could have been an costly one.
Not lengthy after Baez crossed residence plate to safe a 6-5 walk-off win for the Mets on Tuesday afternoon, staff president Sandy Alderson, pitcher Carlos Carrasco and the Citi Discipline grounds crew have been left scouring the realm round residence plate, on the lookout for a diamond from the earring that Baez misplaced both on his head-first dive or in the course of the celebration.
“I attempted to assist for just a little bit after I was on the market and I did inform among the grounds crew to see if they may assist too with a kind of blowers, see what they may do,” supervisor Luis Rojas mentioned.
Baez had been mobbed at residence plate by Francisco Lindor and different teammates after he scored from first base on the game-winning single by Michael Conforto — with some assist from a fielding error by Marlins left fielder Jorge Alfaro.
Alderson and Carrasco ultimately left the scene almost an hour after the diamond went lacking, although the grounds crew stored looking out as they ready the sphere for the nightcap of the doubleheader.
