He was one of Pietromonaco’s seven grandchildren at the game. Pietromonaco said Christian “threw a lightning strike.” Attendees had an additional treat: Jose Reyes, just reacquired by the New York Mets, was playing with the Cyclones, a Mets farm team. To top it off, the Cyclones pulled out a 6-5 victory in extra innings.
