Without captain David Wright, the New York Mets will head into South Beach for three games with the Miami Marlins.

The New York Mets finished off a sub-par homestand, going 2-4 after losing two out of three to both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox.

Now the Mets will embark on a long 10-game road trip, starting this weekend with the division rival Miami Marlins.

During the Mets disappointing homestand, the bullpen struggled and the offense struggled mightily in the last game against the White Sox when they lost 2-1 in 13 innings. In that game the Mets were only the second team in recorded history to draw 13 walks but score one or fewer runs.

The Mets did receive a big boost out of Matt Harvey when he finally pitched like the Dark Knight on Memorial Day, shutting the White Sox out through seven innings and giving up only two hits while striking out six. It was the first time that Harvey pitched into the seventh inning this year.

Overall, though, it was a bad homestand for the Mets. They’ll look to get things going again in Miami.
