There haven’t been many times that I have been speechless with the Mets in a good way (I have been speechless over bad Mets baseball roughly 36,769 times). But after Wednesday night’s 16-9 win over Detroit it took me several minutes to even begin to think about what to write.

The Mets 16-run performance gives them a franchise record 52 in the past 4 games.

A quick recap of the game: The Mets jumped out to an 8-2 lead, picking up right where they left off last night, as their bats remained hotter than we have ever seen the franchise have. Unlike the series opener though, the Tigers fought back on Wednesday with a barrage of 5 homeruns, and pulled within 8-6 in the 6th. Miguel Cabrera had 2 of those bombs, including a 450 foot shot to left center.

Most Mets fans went into this road trip before the All-Star break worrying about a major losing skid. Heading off to play two American League divisional leaders on the road, followed by a Yankees team with the 2nd best record in the AL, the “feel good story” that has been the overachieving Mets in 2011 looked like it could be headed to an end, especially after the first game of the trip ended with a convincing 8-1 Rangers win.

But the Mets fought back to win the last 2 games, scoring 22 runs in the process and getting back to .500 yet again. They now have another shot at getting over the hump for the first time since early April, but they are playing one of the better teams in baseball- the Detroit Tigers.
