    The Mets fell to the Kansas City Royals four games to one after blowing a ninth-inning lead and eventually losing an extra-inning game Sunday night.

    The mayor, a rabid baseball fan, said Monday that it was “eight good innings and some tough, tough luck.”

    De Blasio is a Boston Red Sox fan but cheered loudly for the Mets during the postseason.

    He took to Twitter before Game 5 and went on a surprising, fourteen-post series encouraging the Mets.

    The mayor compared their plight to what the Red Sox faced in 2004 before they overcame a 3-0 series deficit to defeat the New York Yankees.

    After the loss, he posted one final time, thanking the Mets for the memories.
