Gnome of Defeat crashes family celebration, Rockies beat Mets 18-9

How about that Scott Hairston? 

Hit for the cycle and everything. 

Too bad no one is going to remember it because the Mets allowed the Gnome of Defeat to crash an otherwise nice family celebration. 

The 18-9 disaster in Denver included an 11-run fifth inning where the team committed four throwing errors and gave up two three-run homers.

Just because we’re commemorating the 1962 Mets this season doesn’t mean we have to play like them. Actually, that might not be fair because as bad as the 1962 team was, I don’t think it ever had an inning like that one.
