New York - Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh) is mourning the Mets’ heartbreaking World Series loss.

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.

What a farce and phony this guy is. He didn't even write these tweets, a staffer from City Hall did. What a disgrace.
