Closer Jeurys Familia blows game in the ninth inning

New York Mets reached a one-game National League wildcard playoff against the San Francisco Giants.

All the Mets had to do was win one game to go one to the multiple game playoffs, the NL Division Series. Instead, the Mets lost to the Giants 3-0, at Citi Field.

So, no chance for a World Series appearance in 2016.

How did it happen?

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, aka Thor, pitched seven shutout innings.

Syndergaard was so good, he pitched two hits and striking out a postseason career-high 10 batters.

And, what did closer Jeurys Familia do with a 0-0 tie game?

Familia gave up a three-run home run in the top of the ninth to San Francisco Giants third baseman Conor Gillaspie, and that was all she wrote.

Well, there’s always next year.

We salute the Met’s 2016 season and look forward 2017.
