B-Mets finally hitting stride

All season long Pedro Lopez has been at a loss for words when, between the offense, the starting pitching, the bullpen, and the defense only one or two of the four would seem to have a good game and the others would have an off night. That's not the case of late, as the B-Mets have won eight of their last eleven games, outscoring their opponents 60-31 in that span.

Lopez can breathe a sigh of relief as the B-Mets climb the standings, now two games behind division leading New Britain and a half game out of second behind Reading.

"We feel good as a team right now. We've been playing well all around: pitching, hitting, defense. So, we're feeling good right now and we're happy to be home," said Michael Conforto, B-Mets Outfielder.

"I think we're getting there," Lopez said. "I just thought it would be quicker with some of the guys that we have, it's been a little slower but it's part of the process, but I just hope they can learn from it and once they get it, don't let it go, please because it'd be hard to go back to May again."

The B-Mets return home Tuesday night after 11 days on the road to host Harrisburg for a four game set. First pitch, 6:35.
