Before the season began we bought a 6 pack of tickets to see the Mets this season. It included the July 3rd game which was also fireworks night. The Mets were just awful as they lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-1. At this point the Mets had lost 6 out of 7 games. Any good team goes into a slump at some point of the season. The Mets still hold a 10 1/2 game lead in the National League East. Let's hope that the slump has ended and that we can coast into the playoffs. However, there have been some collapses in penant races in the past.
A few days ago I was sitting with Lee outside my building. A neighbor passed by and said she had some extra tickets for todays game against the Pirates. How can I say no. The Mets feel behind but scored 3 runs in the 8th inning to win 7-6.
