Pirates vs NY Mets 7/26/19
The Game: We didn’t get to the stadium/game till the 3rd inning due to traffic and distance. Thankfully we got there just in time to see McNeil hit a 3 run homer. Pirates had really good opportunities early in the game to score a bunch, but only able to get 1 run. Pirates were still struggling in the 2nd half of the season while this was the start of a really hot Mets team. The Mets committed 3 errors in the game and still managed to win due to key home runs. We even got to see Pete Alonso crush a homer, his 34th of the season. Another stat highlight was seeing Lugo get his 1st save for the season. Mets ran away with this game from the Pirates 6-3 final.
My Highlights: Really great side adventures up in Plymouth stopping to see historic landmarks in the city and region. National Landmark of our Forefathers, I highly recommend checking that out and learning more of our history as a Nation. I really enjoyed Citi Field and is definitely in my top 10. The layout of the stadium, the staff, parking, the field, and all was really nice. After the game David and I headed to explore and drive in manhattan down straight through Times Square at midnight while also seeing Ground Zero. Fun long day with enjoyable stops and game. This was the shortest game time wise of 2 hours and 20 minutes. So quick!
