I cannot believe the Mets are one win away from going to the World Series!! My co-workers are waiting for me to trash talk and I just can’t do it. I’m not that type of person to begin with but it’s still shocking to me that the Mets are doing this well right now. I can’t wait to be back at Wrigley tonight. Fingers crossed the Mets take care of  business. Before getting too ahead of myself, let’s take a look at last night. There was a handful of fellow fans who came to Merkle’s before the game. The bar was more packed than I expected, but I think every bar along Clark Street was just as busy.

The group at Merkle’s

Nik and I had seats in section 237 where we’ve sat several times before. I got the tickets from a Cubs season ticket holder who I’ve bought from before. I absolutely love these seats. You can’t see plays in right field, but the view for everything else is great. (And with the late game rain, we were covered by the overhang!)

Everyone on the Mets played a role in the game. Jacob deGrom was able to go 7 innings and gave up only 2 runs. The bullpen took over and didn’t give up any runs. On offense, Daniel Murphy kept his hot streak going with another home run. David Wright and Yoenis Cespedes connected on a few hits. Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda got on base. Wilmer Flores got in on the action with a ground rule double. (Should have been a triple but the ball got stuck in the ivy and Wrigley has special rules for that. Anyway, Terry Collins was none too pleased.)

It was just a great game all around. The Cubs fans around us were quite nice and rather entertaining. And in case you needed reminding, the Mets won 5-2!!
