Read the wrap-up of last night’s game in which the Mets’ offense was firing on all cylinders again. Fernando Tatis’s pinch-hit grand slam, his second this year, was an amazing sight to behold if you were watching it and was the first one in nine years. He’s been hitting into double plays so much lately that a feeling of dread immediately settled on all fans who were watching. But he came through in a big way and helped lead the Mets to the win.
The Mets have won three games in a row for the first time since May 29 when they swept the Nationals and won the first game in a series against the Marlins. However, for the second straight game, every other team in the division also won their games, so they didn’t gain any ground in the division. They did gain ground in the Wild Card race and are now 6 1/2 games behind the Rockies.
