The Mets scored 12 runs in an inning and it was as ridiculous as you'd expect

The Mets picked up another win on Friday, bringing their record to 14-7 on the campaign -- but this wasn't any ordinary win over the Giants.

No, no. The thought of a "regular" win was far too boring for the Metropolitans on Friday, so instead they scored 12 runs in the third inning. Twelve. 12. A dozen. One less than a baker's dozen. 

The outburst came at the peril of the Giants' Jake Peavy and reliever Mike Broadway, who didn't have a very fun experience on the mound that inning. 

Here's a quick GIF of all the action:


Here's how it went down in chronological order:

Curtis Granderson: walk.

David Wright: walk.

Michael Conforto: RBI double, 1-0 Mets.

Yoenis Cespedes: two-run single, 3-0 Mets.

Lucas Duda: walk.

Neil Walker: RBI double, 4-0 Mets.

(Mike Broadway replaces Peavy).

Asdrubal Cabrera: two-run double, 6-0 Mets.

Kevin Plawecki: walk.

Steven Matz: strikeout (one out).

Curtis Granderson: RBI single, 7-0 Mets.

David Wright: single (bases loaded).

Michael Conforto: RBI single, 8-0 Mets.

Yoenis Cespedes: grand slam, 12-0 Mets.

Lucas Duda: groundout (two outs).

Neil Walker: groundout (three outs).

And … exhale. That was a lot of activity.

Here's a Statcast breakdown of Cespedes' grand slam:'s Anthony DiComo reported that this was the largest single-inning offensive outburst by the Mets in franchise history, eclipsing an 11-run effort by the 2006 team. 

Cabrera provided DiComo with a choice quote after the game, when asked to sum up the madness: 

It was a pretty eventful evening at Citi Field.
