How Big Apple sees Giants-Mets

NYC’s take


New York’s variety of media outlets offer plenty of content ahead of the Mets-Giants N.L. wild-card game Wednesday. New York Post’s Joel Sherman called Giants pitcher Madison

Bumgarner “arguably the most successful visiting pitcher in Citi Field history” and the Mets’ key to victory is getting to the bullpen.
