Mets 1 Nationals 0 in Regular Season Finale

It seems to be a tradition that we go to the last home game of the season.  On paper this game was meaningless, but I did not want the Amazins to go into the playoffs with a 6 game losing streak.  Jacob deGrom did not allow a hit in 4 innings, but taken out as Terry Collins wanted this outing as a tune-up for deGrom.  He changed pitchers every inning to give each some work as the first game of th NLDS isn't until Friday.  There was no score until the 8th inning when Curtis Granderson hit a home run.  Jeurys Familia came in the 9th to get his 43rd save tying the team record.  It wasn't easy as with 2 outs Bryce Harper hit a double.  Jayson Werth hit a fly ball to end the game.

Box score

I met up with radio enthusiast friend Gary Fishbein who works in Food Services at Citifield.  I finally met Ira Sonin whom I've known through Facebook.  Including Lee there were 3 of my Facebook friends at the game.  Karen just does not want to get on Facebook.

The Mets start the NLDS at Los Angeles on Friday.  It is strange that both the Mets and Dodgers were no-hit twice this season yet won their respective divisions.
