"It's baseball. You feel like a little kid". Under new manager Mickey Callaway, the Mets are on their longest winning streak since 11 consecutive victories in April 2015. "Once you expect to win and you truly believe, I think there's no going wrong".
The Brewers are in NY on Sunday, concluding a three game series against the Mets. "The strikeouts are there", Callaway said. "Bringing Jay Bruce back, getting Adrian Gonzalez, getting Frazier, signing Jose Reyes back, those are all huge pieces in your clubhouse that help create that relaxed atmosphere that we're seeing and that fight that we're seeing throughout the game".
The decisive blow came in the very first inning, where Harvey allowed a three-run homer to Jonathan Villar, who tucked a fastball from Harvey right over the left field fence.
"It felt like playoff atmosphere", Frazier said.
"It was good just to get out of that cold", Flores said. "We know what we're capable of". Chacin is 2-5 with a 6.10 ERA in nine career games (eight starts) against the Mets.
As Amed Rosario stood by the on-deck circle with a royal blue balaclava covering his mouth and nose, Matt Albers (2-1) shook off a sign from catcher Jett Bandy, and Flores sent a belt-high sinker over the 370-foot sign in left-center for his second home run this season.
Perez went 2-for-4 with a homer and a pair of RBI in yesterday's start.
Phillies 2, Rays 1: Jorge Alfaro singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the top of the ninth inning, and Philadelphia won for the sixth time in seven games in beating host Tampa Bay. He followed that up by giving up six runs (three earned) on seven hits over 5.2 innings.
Supporters to rally for Meek Mill

Chase Anderson allowed two runs over six innings in a loss to the Cubs last Sunday.
The New York Mets will look to continue their hot start, now sitting at 10-1 overall with an eight game winning streak following their second consecutive series sweep after a 4-1 win over Miami on Wednesday. He became the first Mets player to triple in his first at-bat with the team since pitcher Eric Cammack at the Florida Marlins on July 5, 2000 - his only big league plate appearance. In this game against the St. Louis Cardinals, he lasted only 4.2 innings, giving up six hits and three earned runs.
The lengthy outing by Anderson meant Brewers manager Craig Counsell only had to use two relievers Saturday.
On a windy Sunday afternoon with a game-time temperature of 42 degrees - ideal for Jackie Robinson Day when all players wore that number - the Mets beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 to open a season with five straight series wins for the first time. "We didn't pick each other up until the ball was coming down".
"I have to plan for what could happen later in the game more than that situation with still 13 outs left", Counsell said.
