The Mets enter tonight’s game with a three-game winning streak, with the spark coming from Monday’s meltdown to the Pirates at Shea Stadium.
“We should have won that game,â€™â€™ Beltran said. “We let that game get away from us, and if weâ€™re going to be the team we say we are, we canâ€™t keep having games like that.â€™â€™
The Mets responded by sweeping Washington, and open a four-game series against the Pirates tonight. Anything less than winning three of four is not acceptable.
“Thatâ€™s something thatâ€™s been a weakness for us all year,â€™â€™ Beltran said of the Metsâ€™ struggles against losing teams. “We havenâ€™t played well against teams with that are below .500. Itâ€™s something that has to stop.â€™â€™
The Mets are 2-7 against Atlanta; 0-3 against Houston; 1-2 against Pittsburgh; 2-5 against San Diego; and 1-2 against Seattle.
