While You & Your Team Were Sleeping

Good morning. In case you missed Tuesday night’s late Mets game in Oakland, the previously slumping A’s won by a comfortable margin [1]; the Mets collected more than their customary four hits, but to no avail; Travis d’Arnaud [2] homered with nobody on; Dillon Gee [3] struggled through five and two-thirds innings; Gonzalez Germen [4] wasn’t particularly effective in his return from Las Vegas; A’s fans were effusive in their support of their team; the Mets’ fell to nine games below .500 for the first time since July 7; the Mets’ record of 59-68 aligned almost identically with that of their previous three seasons under Terry Collins, when they were 60-67, 58-69 and 58-69 at the same juncture of the schedule; and 2015 drew another day closer. Good night.
