The New York Mets have emerged as a superpower this season. Under the guidance of visionary manager Buck Showalter, the Mets have been phenomenal. It seems like the day Steve Cohen bought the Mets, their fate changed.

They are the only MLB side to not lose a series this season. After having a brilliant free agency ahead of the 2022 season, the Mets suffered an enormous setback when their starting pitcher Jacob deGrom got injured. But this did not affect their mindset and game, as they won the opening day game against the Washington Nationals.

New York Mets stage historic comeback against the Phillies

The Mets are playing their ninth series of the 2022 season, and they are yet to lose any series this season. The New York Mets pulled off a miraculous comeback against the Philadelphia Phillies and stunned the baseball world in their recent game.

At once, the Mets were trailing by six runs to the Phillies. To overcome such a big lead that too in the ninth inning, indeed, needs a magical performance. And that is literally what the Mets did. They scored seven runs in the ninth inning to win the game and register their name in the MLB history.

Before this game, the Mets had lost on 330 occasions over the last 25 years where they trailed by six or more runs in the last moments. This performance from the Mets was not a fluke. Instead, it shows the winning mentality of their players.
