Game 3 of the Mets/Cubs series was by the far the coldest. I even had to break out long underwear. TMI? Once again, Nik and I were supposed to be in the 400′s but we sat in some empty seats on the 200 level and had a great view of everything, even R.A. Dickey tripping on his way to first. Turns out he might have hurt his heel, but please, can the injury bug just leave the Mets alone for a few weeks?!
The Mets had a 1-0 lead heading to the bottom of the third off of Jose Reyes running smartly on the bases. He hit a double, but due to 2 Cubs errors he was able to score. It was pretty exciting and I’d rather be calling it an inside the park home run.
A pitching combo of Pedro Beato and Pat Misch proceeded to quickly give up a bunch of runs to the Cubs and that’s pretty much how the game went, losing 9-3 in the bitter cold. Of course Tim Byrdak and Jason Isringhausen had to get in on the fun of giving up runs too.

***Overall, it was fun to see the Mets at Wrigley. It only happens once a year and when it does, I’m all in. It was nice seeing some other fans turn out at Merkle’s before the games. Hopefully next year the weather is better and the Mets can get a few more wins when they visit.
