Meet the Mets
The Mets began the night with honors and ended with horrors, as both Noah Syndergaard and Terry Collins were tossed from Saturday's game, leading to a massive Mets implosion.
During a pre-game ceremony, the 1986 Mets were honored for the 30th anniversary of their championship season, and it was all good feelings at Citi Field. When the game started, however, those good feelings evaporate quickly. In the third inning, Mets ace Noah Syndergaard threw behind the head of Chase Utley, drawing an immediate ejection from home plate umpire Adam Hamari. Manager Terry Collins, who lit into Hamari, was tossed as well.
The rest of the night did not go well, as Utley dinged the Mets with two homers, including a grand slam. The Mets lost 9-1.
Doc Gooden was apparently so mad about Syndergaard's ejection that he left the game in solidarity.
