If you saw fireworks over Citi Field Saturday night, it wasn’t just because the “Amazin’s” were actually amazing for once.
Saturday night was fireworks night at the Flushing ballpark. After the game, Mets fans and all of Flushing were treated to a pyrotechnics show sponsored by Duane Reade to a medley of popular songs ranging from “Rude” to “Pompeii.”
It was a good night for the show. The Mets defeated the San Francisco Giants 4-2.
Rookie pitcher Jacob DeGrom, the National League’s July Rookie of the Month, did not give up a single hit for seven innings and received a standing ovation for his performance.
Of course the excitement didn’t last long. When the two teams took the field again on Sunday, the Mets were blown out 9-0. They lost to the Giants again Monday 4-3.
The only fireworks after those games were probably in the Mets locker room.
