Tampa Bay Rays 9 Mets 0 - I should have gone to a museum today

When I bought Met tickets in March, I didn't buy anything for July since I didn't know when in the month we would go on vacation.  Since we are not leaving until July 29, I thought we would get tickets for one or two games early in the month.  Since the weather forecast was promising, I decided to get tickets for today's game.  If I had bought promenade infield seats from the box office, I would have paid $40.  I checked out StubHub and was able to buy tickets for $17 each.  I guess season ticket holders are trying to dump their tickets.

C.J Cron hit a three-run home run for the Rays in the first inning off starting pitcher Chris Flexen.  it was then downhill from there for the Mets.  At the end of the 6th inning, the Rays were ahead 7-0 and to add insult to injury Rays starter Nathan Eovaldi retired the first 18 batters.  Brandon Nimmo singled in the 7th for the Mets to end the threat of a perfect game.  The Rays scored two more runs to win 9-0.
