Excitement builds ahead of Wednesday’s wild-card Mets game

NEW YORK — Mets fans and players alike are gearing up for one of the biggest games this season, Wednesday’s National League wild-card game against the San Fransisco Giants.

The Flushing, Queens based team clinched a playoff spot Saturday, beating the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3.

The only other time the Mets made the postseason in consecutive years was 1999-2000. They won the National League East last year and went all the way to the World Series before losing to Kansas City.

Tickets for the win-or-go-home game start at $166 — just for nosebleeds.

Super fans can purchase field level seats for an average of $2500.

Pitcher Noah Syndergaard, statistically the team’s best pitcher all season, will start in Wednesday’s game.

He’s up against the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner, a matchup that only creates more excitement among Mets fans who refuse to be shaken by Bumgarner’s impressive postseason stats and two losses to him during regular season play.

The game is Wednesday at 8 p.m. at Citi Field and will be broadcast on ESPN.
