The Mets have now won 4 of their last 5 games after taking the series in St. Louis and the opener last night against Philly. Yesterday Colon returned to form and collected two hits as the offense woke up smacking multiple homers early and a grand slam later on to blast the game open. The rest of the field the Mets are chasing also won, but that’s ok because at this point we just need to win. Anyway, Thor looks to keep it going today against Hellickson.
