One For the Dogs

Giants fans brought their dogs to Citi Field for the Mets annual Dog Day.

The pooches took over Citi Field today and Giants fans came out to show their love for baseball and puppies, unfortunately the game didn’t go the Giants way.  The Giants scored 3 runs to tie the game in the top of the 9th inning, but it was not enough as the Mets came back with a run in the bottom of the inning to beat the Giants 4-5.
