Mets 7 Giants 3 in a Thursday Day Game at Citi Field

Guess What? This journal entry is not about Bob Dylan.

One nice thing about being retired is that I can always go to weekday afternoon games and not have to worry about missing work.  Since the NYC schools were closed today, Karen had the day off, so we could go together.

The game started for the Mets with back-to-back home runs by Amed Rosario and Dom Smith.  It was only the third time in Mets history that they started a game with 2 home runs.  Brandon Belt hit a 2-run homer for the Giants in the top of the fourth to tie the game while a solo homer by Pablo Sandoval in the 6th gave the Giants a 3-2 lead.  Jeff McNeil drove in Juan Lagares with a single to tie the game.  Todd Frazier hit a 2-run homer in the 8th to give the Mets the lead.  A double by Lagares and another single by McNeil gave the Mets some insurance as they took a 7-3 lead.

Mickey Callaway brought in struggling reliever Jeurys Familia to hold the 4-run lead.  He pitched a clean 9th inning as the Mets won 7-3.
