“Hopefully we’ll leave with bigger smiles on our faces tonight,” she said.

Ada Genta said she had a good feeling about Game 2.
“Good for Murphy. That’s what I’m rooting for,” she said.
Gene Planes said he’ll stay up until 4 a.m. to witness a win if he has to.
“Murphy’s going to hit a couple of homeruns,” he said, “I don’t care how late. Those are my boys.”
Some fans held onto nervous optimism even as things started to fall apart in the 5th inning of Game 2, hoping for a big comeback.
“These are the Mets, you gotta believe,” Jay Francis told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco, “Coming back to New York, we got a whole new series.”
