2015 NLDS Game 4: Dodgers 3 Mets 1

I just never had a good feeling about Game 4.
I was still tired from Game 3. My energy wasn't the same, the crowd's energy wasn't the same and certainly the offensive production wasn't the same.
Our seats weren't as good either, though we still had a nice view from left field.

Steven Matz did not pitch great, though he could have easily avoided that disastrous innings if a couple of those hits didn't drop in or get by.

But the Mets just ran into the best pitcher in baseball on a good night.
All that stuff about Kershaw not being good in the playoffs was just nonsense. He's a great pitcher and he doesn't turn into a pumpkin on October 1.
Yes, his results were puzzling but they weren't as bad as they seemed because W-L record is not a good indication of a pitcher's individual performance, and because even 40 or 50 innings is a very small sample size.

But please remember, momentum is only as good as the next day's starting pitcher. We've got Jacob deGrom, but they've got Zack Greinke.

So who knows what will happen.

All we can do is wait, watch and scream "Lets! Go! Mets!"
