On a night of poignant, personal tributes, devastating emotions and indelible images, all of the Miami Marlins are wearing number 16 jerseys emblazoned with Jose Fernandez's name. Left-handed hitter Dee Gordon led off the bottom of the first inning by taking the first pitch as a righty, in tribute to Fernandez, who was a right-handed prodigy. After taking a second ball as a lefty, Gordon swung at Bartolo Colon's next pitch and struck a towering home run to right field, his first of the year in more than 300 at bats. He cried as he rounded the bases. And as he embraced his teammates in the dugout, Mets broadcaster Gary Cohen, who had been in tears during the pregame -- as had his SNY TV booth mates Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez -- said, "I don't care who you are, who you root for or how badly you want the Mets to be in the postseason, THAT was phenomenal."
