METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 10, 2011 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
April 17, 2011
For the second year in a row, we celebrated my friend Kathy's son Adam's birthday (He turned 5) at Citi Field on a cool and cloudy "winter" afternoon. Chris Young pitches 7 innings of one-hit ball but because of his past arm troubles (he's now on the DL) and pitch counts; Terry Collins takes him out and the Nats tie the game. The Mets should've won in the 10th but in the 11th, bad old Blaine Boyer (NICE KNOWING YA) gives up 4 runs etc...you get the picture. The three of us stayed until the final out as usual and for the second year in a row, Adam's b-day is spoiled by a Mets loss to Washington. However, the magnet schedules given out courtesy of SNY are the nicest I have ever seen!!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
