Fan runs onto field, pretend pitches from mound during Mets-Giants game

SAN FRANCISCO — If he was looking for a tryout, picking a night the Mets used six pitchers to cover eight innings was some fortunate timing.

But it did not look like the field invader impressed anyone besides San Francisco fans.

A fan wearing a Padres jersey rushed onto the Oracle Park field during the ninth inning of the Mets’ 7-5 loss to the Giants on Monday, circling the field as security mostly rolled their eyes.

He was able to make it from left field to the foul territory behind first base without getting chased, then eluded the first attempts to bring him to justice. He doubled back and ran to the mound, where he mimicked a delivery before security finally took him down.

Which is about how the night went for the Mets, too.
