Today's home opener got crunk for real as L'Grande Orange, Fonzie, and Johnny B. Goode crunk the 2015 NL pennant to the sky.

Jacob deGrom looked pretty deRn good, not deStracted at all by an impending deLivery, instead further deBasing de already deBilitated Phils:
Captain Comeback showed he's still got the Wright stuff when tested on a drag bunt in the fourth while the game is still up for grabs:

After taking a pitch inner half and low, Michael Conforto zones the heck out of this pitch and extends the lead.
Tomorrow's Post headline featuring this video on the back page—Conforto to Collins: "Platoon this":

You can put the third game of 2016 in the books as a win for the good guys. Tune in next time, true believers!
