Randolph On Milledge's Slide Home

Anthony Di Como at Mets.com writes about Lastings Milledge's slide for the go ahead run and what Willie Randolph thought of it:

"I really didn't like it," Randolph said. "But it got the job done. He tried to go around the catcher and a lot of these guys do that nowadays; it's so silly. You end up getting hurt."

Catcher David Ross braced for contact, but Milledge slid right past him, darting his left hand around Ross' leg for the score.

"I really didn't think I could score," Milledge said. "With a real decent throw home, I would've been out, but it was a chance we took."
