Miracles Never Cease
After a homestand where I don't think the Mets scored 7 runs in total, they went out and scored 7 runs in one game in Milwaukee.
I don't know if it's a mental block that the Mets have when they play at Citi Field or something else, but it's certainly demoralizing to a team and their fans when they go out and play well on the road, and then when they come home with the fans who WANT them to do well backing them up, they spontaneously throw themselves down the toilet.
On the road, it's wonderful. Murphy homers, Duda homers, Wright pulls himself within 7 hits of the Mets team record, and everything is nice and rosy pink.
At Citi Field, the Mets could get 10 hits in a game, but you can be guaranteed that they'll all be singles, and about 8 of them will come with 2 out and nobody on, and the other ones will be followed by double plays.
I can't figure it out. Hopefully it changes before I go to my final two games of the season.
