Gillaspie’s three-run homer in the top of the ninth off Jeurys Familia ended the Mets’ season despite an outstanding start from Noah Syndergaard. - From http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/06/sports/baseball/new-york-mets-san-francisco-giants-nl-wild-card.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur
But Giants third baseman Conor Gillaspie, who started only because of an injury to one of his teammates, smashed a three-run homer with one out in the ninth inning, giving the Giants a 3-0 win that ended the Mets’ improbable postseason run.
But as quickly as the Citi Field crowd was deflated by the hit and the runner threatening at second, its liveliness returned with a spectacular catch by Granderson.
But as the Giants contended with Syndergaard, the Mets were overwhelmed by Bumgarner.
In the fourth inning, Cabrera ripped a single down the third-base line with one out.
It seemed like the moment for the Mets to seize upon, with the top of the order coming up.
