The Mets have been at home for the first game of a season 29 times now, but never before had they hit three home runs in a season opener that was a home game.
This was the fourth time they've been at Citi Field playing the first game of a season. In the previous three they had hit a total of two homers (1 last season, 1 in 2010, none in 2012), so they topped that three-game total in this one game.
Prior to yesterday the Mets had played 405 games at Citi Field, and had hit three or more homers in 17 of them, about 4.2%, or roughly once every 24 games. They went the last 34 games at Citi last season without hitting three homers or more.
What are the odds that Brown, Lagares and Wright will hit homers in the same game ever again?
