How to Improve at Home

With the final road trip in the books (as it were), the Mets 2013 road record finishes at 41-40. This is significantly better than their home record, which stands at 32-45 with 4 games to play.

Mets Games 156 and 157: Loss To Reds, Win Over Reds

Reds 3 Mets 2

Mets 4 Reds 2
