Amazin'-ly Tenuous Connection Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax patented his greatest creation on this date in 1846: a conical woodwind made of brass with a single reed mouthpiece that would be come known as the saxophone.Mets fans who attended the June 14 contest against the Cubs ten days ago got a sweet blast of sax after the game, as Foreigner played a nine-song set that included the 1981 hit "Urgent".That brought Ramon Castro to the plate and he brought home the Mets' first run of the game by lofting a fly deep enough into right field to score Anderson and advance Wright to third base.Jose Reyes followed and drove a similar can of corn to center, but Bernie Williams, a highly debatable Gold Glove selection in his peak years, let the ball clank off his mitt.Despite the error, the official scorer gave Reyes credit for a sac fly, correctly separating David Wright's easy trot home from the play that put Reyes on base.Luckily for the Mets, the poor fielding proved contagious.To paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr., the arc of the baseball universe is long, but it bends toward justice meted out by robot umpires.
