Our Top 10 wins of 2016 countdown continues with #8, a 13-1 win over the Giants on April 29th.

I chose this win for its historic context, of course. The Mets had never scored more than 11 runs in any given inning before — something you never go into a game looking for nor expecting, kind of like a no-hitter. First things first, you are looking for a win from your team.

As the inning unfolds, however, that’s when whispers from the diehards aware of the history begin as well as the announcers and commentators alerting you to what the Mets are chasing.

The fact the Mets were able to break their record, and on the back of Yoenis Cespedes, no less, stands as a metaphor of how La Potencia takes this franchise to another level.
