Mets are pressing all of the magical buttons right now The only question was whether it would land fair, but Todd Frazier crushed this fastball so darn hard it never had a chance to hook foul.

Mets’ late-inning heartbreak just won’t end SAN FRANCISCO — Extra, extra, it’s nine innings or bust for the Mets.
