Mets Take Series On Easley's Legs

Marty Noble at writes about the Mets 12-4 win over the Brewers yesterday:

With David Wright and an atypical cast of characters making significant contributions, the Mets rolled over the fading Brewers. Wright was routinely productive, collecting four hits, including his 19th home run, and scoring three times in the 12-4 victory. But consider the names of his collaborators -- Brian Lawrence, Damion Easley and Jorge Sosa. Hardly bizarre, but not the usual suspects either.

Lawrence, the winning pitcher, hadn't pitched in a big-league game since the '05 playoffs; Easley, who had three hits, two RBIs and two runs while playing right field, is an understudy; and Sosa was bounced from the rotation. Anyway, his biggest contribution was made with his bat.

And to make it all a tad more uncommon, there was the home run Easley hit in the sixth inning that turned the game in the Mets' favor for good. What, in the game, is more out of the ordinary than inside-the-park?
