In the box score of Sunday's Phillies-Mets game, there is a benign Cameron-Matsui-Zeile notation for a double play. The actual play where Mike Cameron made a spectacular play in the outfield and doubled up Todd Pratt was really much bigger. In the top of the 5th inning, there was no score and Pratt was on first. Doug Glanville hit a ball towards right-center field and Cameron was more than 40 yards away.

It appears as if nobody thought Cameron could catch it:

"I thought the ball was in the alley," Mets Manager Art Howe said.

Catcher Vance Wilson said, "I thought, 'Oh no, here we go.' "

Cameron said: "I thought, 'I better get on my horse.' I just didn't want to fall on my face."

Lucky for the Mets, he did. As if his play in the field wasn't impressive enough, Cameron hit a solo home run in the bottom of the inning, which was followed by another homer by Vance Wilson. Cameron single handedly excited the crowd and ignited the Mets. Al Leiter pitched six shutout innings before handing the game over to his bullpen, which performed masterfully. Five pitchers combined to give up only one run and two hits.

The victory for the Mets put them back where they started their four game series with Philadelphia, 2 games back of both the Phillies and the Braves. There's no rest for the Mets though, they play the Marlins today and tomorrow and continue until August without a break.
