The Mets rallied for a 5-4 win against the Phillies on Sunday at Citi Field, thanks in large part to a walk-off, RBI single by Ruben Tejada.
“The energy level is unbelievable,” Terry Collins later said about the post-game atmosphere in the clubhouse. “It hasn’t been that high in a long time, even when we were playing good. … This win may really be the win that gets us going.”
The Mets play 14 of their next 16 games in New York.
“I was saying it during the game: This is going to be the game that turns this thing around,” Jon Niese told reporters (ESPN, May 11). “Hopefully that’s the case and we can just build off of this one.”
