New York Mets second baseman Robinson Canó provides an update on where the team is as they find a crucial homestand in front of them.

On Wednesday, New York Mets second baseman Robinson Canó found himself back into the starting lineup. It was his first time getting the nod to start since he suffered a torn left hamstring in August. The Mets just activated Canó from the injured list this week.

After New York’s ninth-inning blunder on Tuesday night, they defeated the Washington Nationals 8-4 to win the three-game road series on Wednesday. One of the reasons they were able to pull off the victory was because of their recently activated second baseman. Canó went 3-for-3 with a home run. After, he made it known that the team’s mindset remains the same going forward.

“The feeling is the same. We’re all on the same page: we want to win, we want to make it to the playoffs,” Canó said, per Scott Thompson of SNY.

“I’m the kinda guy that it’s not over until we’re out, so we got a chance. You just gotta keep grinding and go out and keep doing your job.”

The Mets finished their road trip (three games with the Phillies, three with the Nationals) winning four out of six. They stole two games from the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park as well.

New York will partake in a 10-game homestand starting on Friday. They’ll undergo three games with the Phillies, four with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and three with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
