Lucas Duda made an outstanding diving catch to start a game-ending double play against the Yankees Monday night. As soon as Brian McCann was called out at first, the jack-upped Mets players started celebrating a thrilling 9-7 victory over their crosstown rivals.
Only one problem — the game wasn't officially over yet.
The bizarre situation transpired while the Mets were high-fiving each other on the field and Yankees manager Joe Girardi ran out of the dugout to challenge the call at first base. After a few awkward moments, the umpires walked off the field and Girardi withdrew his request.
And Duda's defensive gem was one for the books.
