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!).
