Are you ready to have your socks blown right off your feet? Well, get a load of this stat: The New York Mets have scored the most runs in the National League since July 25.

Yeah that’s right. The club who is still last in MLB in average (.240) and very close to last in runs, is now traveling from stadium to stadium with a powerhouse lineup.


The three-game clean sweep of the Colorado Rockies concluded today after a 5-1 victory. Starting in Matt Harvey’s spot (who’s getting skipped this time around) was youngster Logan Verrett. All he did was go eight innings and yield just one run and four hits for his first career MLB victory.

If today wasn’t enough good news, the man of the weekend, Yoenis Cespedes, went nuts on Friday night with three home runs and seven runs batted in. He was a big reason New York plated a phenomenal 33 runs in three games.

To add complete giddiness on top of enthusiasm, captain David Wright is expected to make his triumphant return to the lineup on Monday as the Mets begin a four-game set in Philadelphia against the Phillies.

With the win the Mets maintain their five game lead on the Washington Nationals who also came away victorious on Sunday against the Brewers.
