The red-hot Mets are riding an eight-game winning streak. They wrapped up a perfect road trip with a three-game sweep at the Miami Marlins.
New York swept a road trip of at least six games for only the second time in team history. They already have six come-from-behind victories.
The Mets last played a home game on April 4. The actual people show showed in the announced crowd of 21,328 filed out happy after a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. You can bet they were unaware they were watching the beginning of the fastest start in team history.
Mets Look to Stay Hot After an Off Day
Both teams were off Thursday after winning on Wednesday. The Mets took over sole possession of baseball's best record after eight straight win. It was a come-from-behind 4-1 victory over the Marlins. The Brewers took the rubber game of a three-game series by edging the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2.
At 10-1, the Mets are enjoying the best 11-game start in baseball since 2013. The Atlanta Braves also opened 10-1 that season. They are the 24th team since 1900 to go 10-1 or better in its first 11 games.
Rookie manager Mickey Callaway is in even more select company. Only Joe Morgan has opened his career in faster fashion than Callaway. Morgan directed the Boston Red Sox to wins in his first 12 games at the helm upon being named manager at the All-Star Break in 1988.
The resiliency of the Brewers (7-6) has been tested in the season's first two weeks. Milwaukee relievers have blown three saves in the six games since hard-throwing closer Corey Knebel suffered a hamstring injury. The injury will keep him out until at least late May.
The Brewers have a winning record despite a minus-15 run differential that is the third-worst in the National League.
