Now Commenting On:

The Mets scored 18 runs in four games during their recently-concluded trip through Miami against the Marlins.

David Wright has 12 hits in his last 27 at bats.

Daniel Murphy is batting .298. His 92 hits are tied for most in the National League.

Curtis Granderson has a 31-game on-base streak. He's batting .321 with a .453 OBP, three HR and nine RBI in his last 19 games. He hit .145 in April.

"We're getting guys on base, we just haven't been able to get any big hits," Terry Collins said about life prior to his team's recent outburst. "When you have big hits, your games look great. When you don't, you're not good."

Collins has been batting Granderson in the leadoff spot, with Eric Young Jr. batting ninth, a move the manager said is likely to continue on nights when the team isn't facing a left-handed starting pitcher.

Granderson has a .478 OBP in the five games he has hit leadoff.
