Worth noting

The Mets announced the return of their "Strikeouts for Savings" promotion. For every strikeout Mets pitchers record during this weekend's series against the Nationals, fans will receive a one-percent discount on future ticket purchases for home games from May 20-28. If Mets pitchers record 19 strikeouts in three games this weekend, for example, fans will receive a 19-percent discount. Discounted tickets will go on sale within one hour of the conclusion of Sunday's game at mets.com/strikeouts.
