I felt confident tonight. But... I heard a Mets fan say it's been too easy so far--that scared him. I heard another say that the Mets are usually the underdog. With Jacob deGrom starting--that's not the case. That scared him.
Why are Mets fans so afraid?
There was no need to fear tonight. The Mets won 5-2. They were never behind in this game. deGrom was off to a rough start, but only gave up one hit after the first inning. With his third win, deGrom tied the record for most road wins in a single post season along with such luminaries as Madison Bumgarner and Cliff Lee.
Wright and Cespedes each had three hits. Murphy had another home run tying Beltran's record for homeruns in five consecutive playoff games.
I never expected a 3-0 lead. This is awesome. Let's go Mets!
