I chose this game because it was utterly thrilling. You already had buzz with RHP Noah Syndergaard, returning to where he made his major league debut, facing the defending Cy Young Award winner RHP Jake Arrieta.
The Mets had just lost the opener in their only visit to Wrigley for the year, which was the Cubs first win against the Mets since they swept them in the regular season in 2015. New York had yet to lose two in a row coming off the All-Star break, but they had yet to win two in a row as well, a trend that would continue till August 14th.
Though that ended up being the case, in the moment, the win felt like a miracle and solidified Rene Rivera‘s role on this team going forward.
