Phillies 5 Mets 2 in Our First Game of the Season

We always go to a game the first weekend of the season, and this year was no exception.  It was a little chilly in the upper deck, but that didn't bother us.  It was the lack of hitting for the second game in a row that was bad.  It was Harvey Day, but he gave up 3 runs in 6 innings with only 3 strikeouts and was outpitched by Jeremy Hellickson.  The only highlights were a 2 run homer by Yoenis Cespedes and a three strikeout inning by Jim Henderson who is the most pleasant surprise of the season so far.

Game Recap

Before the game I bought the yearbook for the 55th time.  Since the caps we had at home were somewhat shabby, we bought new caps for everyone.  Below is a selfie that I took with my new cap.  I have to learn to smile when I take a selfie.  Maybe somebody should tell me a joke as a snap the camera.

Two of my Facebook friends were at the game.  I tried to meet Joanna Ente, but she was sitting in the 300 levelwhere the ushers were checking tickets, so I could meet her.  I did meet fellow librarian Kate Kosturski who was sitting in section 523.
