The last time they were 20 over .500 was in September, 2012. They finished the season at 94-68 and got to the 20 over mark two weeks earlier with a 6-2 vic over the Snakes. 

I don't believe it either. The good guys were down 4-3 in the 9th, then Pagan got to first on a strike out. It was over 4 batters later.

I saw the Metsies score 3 runs in 3 innings off Tim Hudson and thought "He just doesn't have it tonight."

But the pen held the Mets to one run the rest of the way. With that kind of pitching, a team always has a shot. 

Here's Steve Kroner's verbiage for the SF chron --

Angel Pagan opened the ninth with a strikeout, but still reached first. Jenrry Mejia’s pitch was low and catcher Anthony Recker couldn’t corral it. It rolled only a few feet to Recker’s left.
Pagan hustled up the first-base line, and when Recker’s throw pulled Lucas Duda off the bag, Pagan was safe on the wild pitch.
Hunter Pence followed with a liner into the left-field corner. His double brought home Pagan for a tie game. Pence and Pagan each had three hits.
Pence followed with a smart baserunning move, tagging up on Buster Posey’s flyball to left. Pence was at third with one out.
The Mets intentionally walked Pablo Sandoval to get to Michael Morse. Morse, who’d been hitless in four at-bats, stung a ball to right-center over the drawn-in outfield.
