Mets 12 Colorado 3

Twice each summer the Mets schedule a game to start at 12 noon to accommodate day camps who want to take their kids to the game.  Since I am off from work this week, I decided to go to the game featuring Noah Syndergaard as the starting pitcher.

The Amazins fell behind 2-0 with home runs by LeMahieu and Arenado in the first inning, but after that Noah settled down and the Met hitting came to life with home runs by Curtis Granderson, Kelly Johnson, and Juan Lagares.

The only thing I didn't like was the overmanaging by Rockies manager Walt Weiss.  In the bottom of the eight inning trailing 12-3 he changed the pitcher with two outs.  Likewise in the top of the ninth inning with two outs still trailing by 9 runs he sends in a pinch hitter.

I met radio enthusiast Ken Dulberg at the game.  No other Facebook friends were there.
