The road can be a lonely place
Just ask the Mets, who entered Tuesday’s play with seven road victories, fewest in the National League. They are 7-17 on the road, 19-9 at home. They are hitting .235 on the road, .272 at home. They have produced a 5.25 ERA on the road, 2.80 ERA at home.
“For the most part, we’ve had our chances to win on the road and have come up short,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “But I do think at some point it will come to a place where we’ll get that hit on the road, we’ll make that play on the road, we’ll make that pitch on the road.”
