After a historic night at Citi Field the New York Mets will look to continue their success and wrap up the division series tonight. Last night’s game started with Mets fans panicking but eventually led to an astounding and uplifting roaring of a record-setting 45,000 fans in Queens.
Game 3 can best be defined by the mammoth home run from Yoenis Cespedes, the bases loaded clearing double by Curtis Granderson to grab the mets lead, and Travis d'Arnaud hitting a bomb into the Citi Field Party Deck.
The electricity in last night’s ballpark has no words or feelings to describe the series of events that took place.
If you thought Game 3 was wild then you better be on the edge of your seat for Game 4 because the Mets send Long Island native Steven Matz to the hill in what they hope will send them back into the NLCS for the fiirst time since 2006. This will be no easy task as the Dodgers will counter with Clayton Kershaw tonight as the Dodgers could turn the tides of this series by forcing this series into a game five in Los Angeles with Zack Greinke and 55,000 anxious fans waiting in the realms.
Clayton Kershaw (16-7, 2.13 ERA) vs Steven Matz (4-0, 2.17 ERA)
Two southpaws will be facing off in a showdown tonight that can very well determine who will advance to the next round of the mlb playoffs. On one hand you got the seasoned annually Cy Young caliber ace in Kershaw while on the other hand you have the want to be ace of a staff full of aces being groomed by a young organization.
After a 7 inning pitching duel between Kershaw and Steven Matz, the Mets score late in the eighth inning off a used up bullpen and pull ahead for some late inning magic. Familia records the final out again in strikeout fashion as the Mets did when they won the division. Mets win 4-2
