T-Shirts, Gift Cards, Fireworks, Camps and Toy Trucks aside, this is a very important series for Los Mets.
This could potentially become one of the most crucial series in the long term for the surging Mets, who are in the midst of a wild card spot chase. San Fran currently holds that top spot, so they are the team that we need to gain ground from. Citi Field is the venue, and it’s fair to say the Mets have really defended home grass, going 9-2 in their last 11 home games. It’ll be interesting to see where the Mets go from here on out, especially with big games and challenging opponents coming up.
Niese,deGrom,Colon and Gee face the Giants this week.
Need to know: SF Giants- Hunter Pence, is second in the NL in hits, behind Mets 2B Daniel Murphy.
