El Pasoan Omar Quintanilla Back in the Majors
Omar Quintanilla had a crazy day. He was called up to the Mets from Buffalo and arrived at Citi Field just prior to their game against the Phillies. The El Paso native was in New York’s starting lineup playing shortstop and wearing his familar #6. What the Mets did not expect from their 5th different shortstop this season was a three hit performance, including two doubles. Quintanilla helped the Mets defeat the Phillies 6-3.
