HOUSTON -- The Mets and Astros both entered the National League in 1962. Wednesday marked the final time the two teams will meet at Minute Maid Park as National League opponents.
Manager Terry Collins, who held the same position in Houston from 1994-96, said that considering the infrequency with which the teams play now, it won't be that strange not to be facing the Astros in the future.
"If we played them more, the answer would be, 'Yes.' But when you only play them home-and-home, not really," Collins said. "It's almost like doing an Interleague game.
"It's a little different than it once was, when you played everybody a couple of times each."
