There is no such thing as overkill for a team like the Mets.
Just keep the runs coming on those rare days you are scoring, and enjoy every last second of the barrage until reality — usually the next game — arrives to deliver a wake-up call.

On Sunday, the Mets littered South Beach with 17 hits and flattened the Marlins 11-5 for their fourth victory in five games.
“I think we could use this off day [Monday], but you almost wish that we could carry it over and play,” David Wright said. “The offense really busted out.”

Curtis Granderson and Lucas Duda led the attack, each with three hits, on a day seven members of the lineup had at least two. The team’s hits total tied a season high. It kept the Mets busy on the bench, waving white rally towels that became a staple on this road trip.

Granderson was behind the idea, having grown up in Chicago in the early 1990s when the Bulls were winning three straight NBA titles, waving towels during games to celebrate.

“Hopefully it can be a little something that keeps us going,” Granderson said. “The good thing is it’s not a rally thing, so you don’t have to wait for it. It can happen in the first inning, it can happen late in the game and it’s something that can be good for us.”
Sunday was nirvana for a Mets team that had averaged 2.7 runs over its previous 18 games.
