Alpha-Omega: A First

Until someone tells me otherwise, I am saying that the Mets led off and ended the game in a way that has never occurred before, and will probably never happen again.

They led off the game with an inside-the-park homerun off the bat of Angel Pagan, and closed by falling victim to a triple play.

Now we know that today's game had the first unassisted triple play to end a game, but I'd also wager that we've never had a game start with an inside-the-park HR and end on a triple play.

Wackiest game ever!

Anyone that can prove to me that this has occurred before in a major league game wins a Mets related prize (it's a good one!).

The video says that it was the 4th time an inside-the-park homerun and a triple play occurred in the same game.

The bet is that no team has led off a game with an inside-the-park HR and ended it on a triple play.

Keep digging!

(it is seriously an awesome prize)
