We spent 6 hours in the car for a 3 hour game. Traffic was unreal but it was worth it! We got to sit in some awesome seats (20 rows off the field) in gorgeous weather. It was hot but not humid and there was a breeze that kept coming through. There was no rain even though Connecticut got 6″ of rain in an hour and a half and there were water spouts out over Long Island Sound.
Best of all, the Mets won and took the series from the San Diego Padres. The Mets led 3-1 for most of the game until the Pad’s tied it in the top of the 9th. Luckily David Wright was up in the bottom of the 9th and he hit a 2 run walk off home run to bring the final score to 5 to 3.
We wound up back at our house for burgers on the grill which allowed the gents to run in the back yard. Great day!
