Mets Lose National League Wild Card to San Francisco 3-0
The New York Mets lost quite the heartbreaker at Citi Field Wednesday night. It was the National League wild card game between the Mets and San Francisco Giants and the deciding factor came down to one pitch.
it was the top of the ninth inning and scored was tied at zero. Mets closer Jeurys Familia was facing a backup third baseman from the Giants named Connor Gillespie.
The Giants had two men on, when Gillespie connected for a three run home run that completely took the air out of the forty seven thousand plus fans at Citi Field. They would go on to win 3-0, thus ending the Mets 2016 season.
The Mets were favorites in the NL going into the season. But unfortunately, injuries riddled the team from top to bottom all year. Hey, at least they made it this far.
Pitcher Noah Syndergaard was the star Thursday night on the mound, as he's been all season. He finished 2016 with 14 wins and 218 strike outs.
But now the questions loom. Was has the normally reliable Familia chocked in the last two post seasons? Can injured Mets like Lucas Duda ever be effective? Will David Wright ever even play again?
Only time will tell.
