Keys To A Series Win
Continue the long ball:
As the season goes on, the Mets have to find a way to score other than the home run ball, especially against good pitching teams. But the home run ball has been kind to them lately and they’ve won a bunch of games with the long ball. Continuing the long ball prowess will definitely help a lot this series and for the Mets offensively.
Hit better with runners in scoring position:
The Mets have struggled with RISP for most of the season but they were a little better in that department the last two games vs the Reds. On Tuesday, David Wright hit the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning to give the Mets a 4-3 win. On Wednesday, Neil Walker had an RBI single in the first inning and Michael Conforto had a two-run double in the seventh inning, to give the Mets some insurance runs. One way the Mets can score other than the long ball is situational hitting.
