The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

We've got a three-pack of GIFs from Sunday's game between the Mets and the Nationals. First up is Terry Collins patting Zack Wheeler's butt after pulling his pitcher from the game.

Highlights:

* John Buck nodding
* Omar Quintanilla chewing gum
* Fan above Quintanilla's left shoulder pointing at something (nachos?)

With Anthony Recker pitching in the top of the ninth, Ian Desmond destroyed a pitch that struck well up the window facing of the Acela Club in left field. After the home run, an unphased waiter was seen perfunctorily wiping down a table (hat tip to @myfriendkatye for spotting it). This GIF is mesmerizing.

Highlights:

* Gentleman to the waiter's left, dancing (apparently)
* Floating cup in the upper left of the frame
* Endless home run animation in the score bug

And finally, though his day was far from memorable, Zack Wheeler did strike out five batters. Here are four of them; the fifth was a Gio Gonzalez foul bunt for strike three.
