So much for that early season talk about the New York Mets sputtering offense. The Amazin's bats were in full force on Friday night against the San Francisco Giants as they pounded out 12-runs in the third inning to set a new franchise record. The Mets broke their previous record of 11-runs in an inning set back in 2006 when Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado hit a grand slam apiece against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Yoenis Cespedes led the charge as he recorded 6 RBIs including a grand slam to punctuate New York's offensive outburst. Just two weeks ago the Mets offense was the laughing stock of the league due to its ineptitude, but over their seven-game winning streak they're turning heads and creating a buzz in Queens. New York has the longest winning streak in MLB and pulled to within a half game of the first place Washington Nationals with a 13-1 win over the Giants Friday.
