So far, so good without Carlos Beltran. On the same day when the Mets traded away one of their best players in decades, they went out and continued to hit like he never left, pounding the Reds 8-2 for their 3rd straight victory.
David Wright had the biggest blow, a 3-run homer to center field in the 7th that broke the game open and gave the Mets an 8-1 lead. Wright went 2-4 with 4 RBI on the night, as he continues his torrid hitting since coming back from the DL. He is 12-28 with 2 homeruns and 11 RBI in just 6 games.
