We were in Shea Stadium last night to witness the Mets salvage job of the Mariners series. It's been a long time since we witnessed a bona fide drubbing from Loge13, as the Mets won 8-2.
It helped that Mariners starter Batista was just awful and for a change, the Mets took advantage. After his first off-day of the season, David Wright hit two home runs in the first two innings.
Jose Reyes started the game with a walk, then stole second and went to third on a wild pitch, finally scoring on a Castillo groundout. Jose then hit a three-run homer in the third.
A great night made even better by the fact I got to share it with both Kingman parental units. I attended the game with the Kingman Matriarch, then got a call that Kingman Senior had been offered a ticket in Loge 17! (As far as I know, that section has no blog). Nice weather, fine company, a rare victory. That's what Loge13 is for.
And here is the view of Citi Field from Loge 13 last night:
Compare that vantage to Citi Field, July 25, 2007:
