When Chris Iannetta hit a tenth-inning homer off of Jenrry Mejia to seal a 6-5 win for the Rockies and a fourth straight loss for the Mets, Flushing fans were conceding the season all over the Internet.
On April 14.
The Mets split the next four games to sit at 4-8 on April 18. They had lost the first four series of the year.
Fifteen days later, the Mets are in first place. They just finished their best homestand in 20 years. They swept the Dodgers for the first time since 1995.
Everything gloomy two weeks ago suddenly shines. And there's plenty of proof to show that this recent run can last all the way through September.
