New York Mets finding ways to win in month of May

The New York Mets (25-20) have found ways to win without their big stars and big bats, as the team concluded their series against the Rockies on a winning note. New York was set to take on the Braves for three games but could only play one thanks to the bad weather.

In the team’s most recent action on Saturday, New York bats busted open for a 13-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Things got started with a bang for the Mets thanks to a James McCann homer in the Bottom of the First Inning.

Dominic Smith continued the offense in the Bottom of the Third, New York kept the good times going in the Bottom of the Fifth thanks to a homer by Jonathan Villar, which made the score 3-0.

In the Bottom of the Sixth the Home Run party continued with a shot by Brandon Drury and Billy McKinney that increased the lead to 11-1.

The fans in Citi Field got a treat in the Bottom of the Seventh, as Francisco Lindor hit a shot to center field, that gave the team their 13-1 lead. For those who have been following the team they have been hoping for Lindor to break out his bat and hopefully the homer will do just that.

From there the Mets pen was able to shut down the Braves offense and the team earned the victory.

The only thing that has held the Mets back from continuing their winning streak has been the weather, as there has been a bunch of postponements including the game that was supposed to be played today (Sunday).

This was announced by the team recently

The New York Mets have announced that tonight’s game against the Atlanta Braves has been postponed due to inclement weather. In addition, the team has announced makeup dates for Friday and Sunday’s postponed games.
