NEW YORK (WFAN) — Happy Golden Anniversary to the New York Mets — with Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg coming out of the birthday cake.

The Mets started the next 50 years on Wednesday the same way they started the first 50: with Roger Craig in the house for a loss.

You could describe the game with any number of songs:

“I Walk the Line,” by Johnny Cash.

“Walk Like a Man,” from the Four Seasons.

Roy Orbison’s “Walk On.”

How about “Walk On By” by Dionne Warwick?

For a fun night with the entire family, you could come up with 10 songs for each free pass given to Washington.

No, the walk-to-strikeout ratio did not favor the kids from Flushing.

On to the next game…
