Video: Kirk's deep thoughts

By Adam Rubin

Kirk Nieuwenhuis reacts after his first major league homer, a two-run shot in the fourth inning against Washington's Edwin Jackson that tied the score at 3. Nieuwenhuis noted the shot would not have been a homer under the old Citi Field dimensions. The Mets recovered the ball for Nieuwenhuis, who planned to present it to his father Bob, who attended the game.
