My inaugural trip to CitiField last night was a chilly but special one as I shared the evening with a special guest: Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
The Senator may be used to chilly conditions in Vermont but was cranky as the 7:10 game began.
The Reds taking an early 1-0 lead did little to improve Bernie’s mood, as did other distractions in Flushing.
A nice play by Neil Walker brightened the mood a little, and caused Bernie to reflect on events of the past.
Donald Trump may build a wall, but it takes a champion of the middle class to hit a ball over it, the Senator later explained.
After an RBI single by David Wright gave the Mets a lead, Addison Reed and Juerys Familia closed it out, as the Reds “felt the Bern” of the Mets’ 5-game winning streak.
