Curtis Granderson put the Mets ahead for good in Game 3 of the World Series last night with a two-run homer off Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura in the bottom of the third inning. The blast sent Citi Field into a frenzy. Longtime Mets fans Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock were among those in attendance and Granderson’s home run was met with approval.

No weird clapping from Seinfeld this time around. That’s a shame.
Daniel Murphy has understandably grabbed most of the headlines for the Mets this postseason, but Granderson has been fantastic at the top of the lineup. The veteran outfielder is batting .283/.382/.457 with two home runs, two doubles, 10 RBI, four stolen bases, and eight runs scored over 12 games. He has more walks (eight) than strikeouts (five).
