8/21 - Nationals 7, Mets 4
I was once again fortunate enough to get free tickets to game, and I looked forward to seeing the Mets complete another sweep on a Sunday. Alas, my traveling party got off to a late start, and didn't get to Shea until 1:15. As we were waiting to get the tix, we heard groans coming from the stadium. I knew it would be bad, but come on Kris Benson, 6 runs in two-thirds of an inning? Ugh. The only positives of the day were witnessing Mike Jacobs, the recent callup from AA Binghamton, hit a home run in his first major league at bat, and seeing security restrain someone in the parking lot before we went in, and watching 10 security guards remove some asshole in the 8th inning.
