Mets 13 Dodgers 7 in First Postseason game at Citifield

 This was the first postseason game that I ever attended since going to games in 1957 when I was 8 years old.  There was not an empy seat in Citifeld as this was the first postseason game played there since it opened in 2009.  All of the Dodgers were booed as they were announced before the game.  The biggest boo that could be heard in Los Angeles was for Chase Utley whose aggresive play in Game 2 fractured Ruben Tejada's leg.  I was really surprised that he came out for the introductions, but he did not play in the game.  The biggest cheer came for Ruben.  Rusty Staub who recently suffered a heart attack threw out the first ball.

Matt Harvey was a little shaky as he allowed three runs in the second inning.  He left after the 5th inning after throwing 97 pitches.  The hitting for the Mets really came alive featuring two doubles by Curtis Granderson and home runs by Yoenis Cespedes and Travis d'Arnaud.  The Mets had a 13-4 in the top of the 9th but a shaky relief appearance by Eric Goeddel allowed 3 runs for the Dodgers.  Jeurys Familia came in to protect a 6 run lead, but it the post season you don't want to take any chances.

Beating the Dodgers decisively was the best revenge over the unfortunate incident on Saturday night.
