Mets Return Home to Play Brewers with MLB's Best Record

:WilletsPoint: -- The New York Mets last played a home game on April 4 when the actual human beings in the announced crowd of 21,328 filed out happy after a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies but almost certainly unaware they were watching the beginning of the fastest start in team history.

A far larger crowd will likely show up -- and display a far greater awareness of what's going on -- Friday night when the red-hot Mets return home to host the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Both teams were off Thursday after wins on Wednesday. The visiting Mets took over sole possession of baseball's best record after eight straight win, a come-from-behind 4-1 victory over the Miami Marlins. The host Brewers took the rubber game of a three-game series by edging the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2.

At 10-1, the Mets are enjoying the best 11-game start in baseball since 2013, when the Atlanta Braves also opened 10-1. They are the 24th team since 1900 to go 10-1 or better in its first 11 games.

Rookie manager Mickey Callaway is in even more select company. Only Joe Morgan, who directed the Boston Red Sox to wins in his first 12 games at the helm upon being named manager at the All-Star Break in 1988, has opened his career in faster fashion than Callaway, who deflected credit Wednesday night when asked about the early-season surge.

"The players -- I don't even know what to say," Callaway said. "They're just playing ball. It's great."

The Mets' streak has included five come-from-behind victories. On Wednesday, New York was no-hit through six innings by Miami left-hander Jarlin Garcia and blanked until the eighth, when it scored all four runs.

"I think that what we're going to see throughout the season is when we're down, we know how to get the job done," Callaway said. "We're never going to give up."

The resiliency of the Brewers (7-6) has been tested as well throughout the season's first two weeks. Milwaukee relievers have blown three saves in the six games since hard-throwing closer Corey Knebel suffered a hamstring injury that will keep him out until at least late May.

Josh Hader and Matt Albers nearly combined for a fourth blown save Wednesday, when Hader was pulled after giving up a run in the ninth and Albers allowed two hits before posting his first save.

In addition, the Brewers have a winning record despite a minus-15 run differential that is the third-worst in the National League.

"We're not clicking on all cylinders by any means," Brewers manager Craig Counsell told reporters after Wednesday's game. "But I think a lot of times, the sign of a team that can keep managing wins during those times bodes well for us."

Mets left-hander Steven Matz (0-1, 3.00 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Brewers right-hander Zach Davies (0-1, 5.40 ERA) in a battle of hurlers coming off strong efforts in a no-decision last Saturday.

Matz allowed an unearned run in five innings in the Mets' 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals. Davies gave up one run in six innings in the Brewers' 5-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

Matz is 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA in two career starts against the Brewers. Davies is 2-0 with a 4.22 ERA in four career starts against the Mets.

Frazier Homers Twice, Mets Top Brewers 6-5 to Win 9th in Row
:nbcsports: :ap:
:WilletsPoint: -- Todd Frazier and the New York Mets are grinding out win after win after win, and he already has devised the team gesture.


Frazier hit his first two home runs with the Mets , new catcher Jose Lobaton tripled in his first at-bat with the team , and New York extended its winning streak to nine with a 6-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.


Mets players are celebrating throughout games with a salt-and-pepper shaker motion promoted by Frazier to signify their grinding approach.


"Put a little seasoning on the year," he said, giving the alternate rationale. "We've got to have fun. It's baseball. You feel like a little kid."


Steven Matz ended an 11-start winless streak dating to June 28 as New York became the first major league team from New York City to start 11-1 since the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers. Under new manager Mickey Callaway, the Mets are on their longest winning streak since 11 consecutive victories in April 2015.


"We expect to win," said Frazier, who also singled and walked. "Once you expect to win and you truly believe, I think there's no going wrong."


The gregarious New Jerseyite - he limited his postgame remarks to two minutes in order to head to Toms River for his son's Little League game Saturday - popularized a thumbs-down salute with the Yankees last year after he homered during a Tampa Bay-Yankees game moved to Citi Field and a Mets fan was caught making the motion to him.


"When we made offseason acquisitions, we had the clubhouse atmosphere in mind," Callaway said. "Bringing Jay Bruce back, getting Adrian Gonzalez, getting Frazier, signing Jose Reyes back, those are all huge pieces in your clubhouse that help create that relaxed atmosphere that we're seeing and that fight that we're seeing throughout the game."


It was 68 degrees on the first warm home night of the season, contributing to a crowd of 34.921.


"It felt like playoff atmosphere," Frazier said. "I guess they know what we got. We know what we're capable of."


Signed after a successful run with the crosstown Yankees during the second half of last season, Frazier homered against Zach Davies (0-2) leading off the second in his 37th at-bat with the Mets, a drive to center off the housing of the Home Run Apple.


After Hernan Perez tied the score with a two-run homer in the fourth against Matz (1-1), Frazier lined a home run to left starting the bottom half to put Mets ahead for good. New York opened a 6-2 lead in the fifth, which included Bruce's RBI double, Gonzalez's sacrifice fly and Dan Jennings' run-scoring wild pitch.


Matz, who had lost seven straight decisions, yielded Ryan Braun's two-run, opposite-field homer to right-center in the sixth after Bruce allowed Domingo Santana's leadoff fly to fall for an error. Matz gave up four runs - three earned - and three hits in 5 1/3 innings.


Seth Lugo allowed Travis Shaw's eighth-inning homer, and Robert Gsellman retired Jett Bandy on an inning-ending comebacker. Jeurys Familia got three straight outs to remain perfect in seven save chances and deal the Brewers their first loss in six one-run games this year.


Lobaton came up from Triple-A Las Vegas to help fill the catching void created when Brewers: OF Christian Yelich (right oblique) hit in a batting cage and hopes to be activated Sunday, the first day he is eligible. ... C Manny Pina missed his second straight game because of right calf tightness.



RHP Matt Harvey (0-0, 3.60 ERA) starts for the Mets on Saturday night and RHP Chase Anderson (0-1, 3.38 ERA) pitches for the Brewers.
