These Mets appear especially equipped to shrug it off, brush it aside, and turn the page. Baseball players frequently use such cliches in their speech. Sunday’s 2-0 victory over the Rockies at Coors Field marked the Mets’ 14th consecutive victory following a defeat, the longest such stretch in the Major Leagues in over a decade.
“We just come ready to play every day,” said starting pitcher Taijuan Walker, who became the first pitcher at Coors this season to go at least seven scoreless innings. “Saturday was a very lengthy day. The fact that the players showed up, played excellent defense, and delivered the critical hits and runs we required says a lot about us.”
