For the first time ever I went to a subway series at Citifield. The reason I was able to was my friend wasn’t able to use her tickets. Then that morning I woke up with pink eye. Argh! or Ugh. So I went to the Urgent Care for some medicine. I asked if I could go to the game anyway. He gave me a really funny look, like he couldn’t believe I would ask about a baseball game.
Friday was T-shirt give away night. My friend and I got there kind of late, what with the urgent care visit and having to go to the pharmacy (two actually) and having to do laundry. There were a lot of shirts left. If they hadn’t been orange I would have gotten one.
Tanaka gave up a home run in the first inning. There were no more runs until Tanaka’s second at bat when he got on base. It was an error on the Met’s fielders part so his batting average still sucks, but he came around to score. Then Gardner hits a 2-run home run, followed by Stanton. Color me happy.
Em wanted a souvenir from the game. I reminded her that anything I got at Citifield would have a Mets logo on it. Forgot it was a subways series. I think she’ll like this.
