Those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it.
Those who recognize their history go on big fat winning streaks.
Let the record show: since the Mets christened Gil Hodges gate and Tom Seaver Gate at Citi Field
last Thursday, they have won seven straight games.
The Mets easily beat the Dodgers 7-3 this afternoon, completing their second straight series sweep.
Among the highlights:
- John Maine pitches six strong innings for the win, with 9 strikeouts.
- David Wright went 2-4, his second straight solid game.
- Ike Davis also went 2-4 and is now batting .355.
- The Mets are currently in 1st place, a half game over the Phillies, who we face next this weekend.
If the Mets are smart, they will now spend the rest of the season rechristening every gate, every section, every bathroom in honor of past Mets and past glories. Lets go Mets!
