Dilson Herrera tied the game in the ninth with Spring Training's first inside-the-park homer

After a long offseason, Spring Training is a time for players to shake off the cobwebs and get in shape before the real baseball begins. And while that may involve the occasional preposterously elaborate workout scheme, Mets infielder Dilson Herrera doesn't have time for any of that.
So he decided to take a much more efficient approach during Friday's game against the Marlins. After his deep fly ball got away from the left-fielder and rolled into the corner, Herrera took the opportunity to get his cardio in:  

Herrera's inside-the-parker -- officially the first of the spring -- was actually pretty clutch: It tied the score at 4 in the bottom of the ninth, and that's how the game would end. (Yes, Spring Training games can end in ties, because much like "Whose Line Is It Anyway?," everything's made up and the points don't matter.)
