The Mets were at home this past windy weekend taking on the San Francisco Giants. After Sunday's game, the Mets now stand at 17-14, tied for second place in the National League East . They are two games back of the first place Philadelphia Phillies. The Mets are 5-5 in their last ten games.

Here are some thoughts from this past series with the Giants:

Back On The Winning Track

After losing the previous two series, the Mets won two out of three against the Giants this weekend at Citi Field . New York is now 13-6 at home in 2010.

Catch The Ball, Hit The Ball

The Mets catchers played a big role in the two wins this series. In Friday night’s opener, starting catcher Rod Barajas belted two home runs. One of those homers was a walk-off two run shot to give the Mets the win. Barajas now has nine home runs this season.

Henry Blanco got the start on Saturday in the day game after a night game. The ending was the same. Blanco hit his first home run of the season as the Mets got back to back walk-off wins. Blanco was 3-for-5 in the game.
